Why? Because the fundamentals show that precious metals investment demand has put a great deal more pressure on the silver supply than gold… and by a long shot. There are three crucial reasons why the silver price will outperform the gold price when the highly inflated paper markets disintegrate under the weight of massive debt and derivatives. While many precious metals investors are frustrated by the ability of the Fed and Central Banks to continue to prop up the markets, the longer they postpone the day of reckoning, the worse the collapse. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Tuesday, February 7th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;">When the paper markets finally collapse, the silver market is set up for much higher price gains than gold.&nbsp; Why?&nbsp; Because the fundamentals show that precious metals investment demand has put a great deal more pressure on the silver supply than gold… and by a long shot.</span></p><p><a href="https://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-market-set-much-higher-price-move-gold-16313" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wed, 08 Feb 2017 02:44:04 +0000 SRSrocco 16313 at https://silverseek.com Critically High U.S. Silver Supply Reliance In Jeopardy When Paper Markets Crack https://silverseek.com/commentary/critically-high-us-silver-supply-reliance-jeopardy-when-paper-markets-crack-16298 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The U.S. silver supply will likely be in jeopardy in the future when the highly inflated paper markets finally crack.

For all their hard work, Fresnillo’s profit margin versus its cost of sales fell to an all-time low of 7% in 2015.

Furthermore, precious metals sentiment continues to head down the toilet and into the cesspool, while the financial networks like CNBC get ready to pass out “Go 25,000 Dow Jones” baseball caps.

Last year, I forecasted that global silver production would likely be lower in 2015. I was going by data by the “World Metals Statistics.” However, Mexico’s INEGI (government agency) considerably revised their figures higher for 2015. While I have seen revisions take place, the revisions by Mexico’s INEGI for 2015 were quite substantial. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Monday, November 28th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;">If the market has finally experienced a peak in world silver production, this warns of higher prices in the future.&nbsp; In addition, the global silver market suffered another large net supply deficit in 2016.&nbsp; These factors point to a big upcoming trend change in the future silver market. </span></p><p><a href="https://silverseek.com/commentary/peak-silver-and-continued-supply-deficits-warn-future-higher-prices-16138" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Tue, 29 Nov 2016 00:54:44 +0000 SRSrocco 16138 at https://silverseek.com The U.S. Silver Market Experienced Two Significant Developments In August https://silverseek.com/commentary/us-silver-market-experienced-two-significant-developments-august-16119 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> This large jump in U.S. silver imports is interesting as demand for the iShares Silver ETF was basically flat in August.
