The only change from this time last week are the signs that this state of affairs is accelerating to the downside. The rest of the world is slowly sinking as well -- and at some point reality with catch up with fantasy on Wall Street, along with the other bourses around the world. That&#039;s in the future somewhere -- and until that event occurs, or is precipitated, it&#039;s &quot;party on, dude like 1929&quot; in the U.S. equity markets. But in this &#039;Everything Bubble&#039; that exists planet wide, when trouble shows up in some area of the world that no amount of paper will fix...then confidence, already hanging by a thread everywhere you care to look, will go with it.

be – is the result of at least three interlocking factors. There are certainly other considerations, but the following seem especially relevant today… Our chosen metaphor is the three-legged stool. Take one leg away, and the stool topples.

It also heightens the chance of a different outcome from the usual flush out of the managed money traders on lower prices, particularly if these traders hold off from aggressively adding new short positions. No guarantees, of course, but the growth of the concentrated long positions of late in both silver and gold just might portend a different outcome than the sharp selloff called for by the still-large commercial short position. That said, I wouldn’t expect the big shorts to simply roll over and play dead. The big shorts will either succeed in manipulating prices lower or they won’t, but if they do succeed I still believe it will be the last such rigged selloff. </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, October 28th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="color: #000000;"></span><span style="font-size: medium; line-height: 107%; font-family: georgia, palatino; color: #000000;">I’d like to follow up on an issue I first raised with subscribers last week, namely, the possible reemergence of the silver whale in COMEX silver futures. I want to preface this by openly acknowledging I may be premature in concluding a big buyer has begun to accumulate large quantities of silver futures contracts, but the matter is important enough, in my opinion, to warrant attention now.</span></p><p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/return-silver-whale-17783" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 28 Oct 2019 16:41:31 +0000 Theodore Butler 17783 at http://silverseek.com COT Silver Report - October 25, 2019 http://silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-october-25-2019-17782 <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"> COT Silver Report - October 25, 2019. </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">Friday, October 25th</span> </div> </div> </div> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 508px; margin-left: 0.1pt; border-collapse: collapse;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes; height: 15.75pt;"><td style="width: 381.0pt; border: solid windowtext 1.0pt; border-right: solid black 1.0pt; background: #16365C; padding: 0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; height: 15.75pt;" colspan="6" valign="bottom" nowrap="nowrap" width="508"><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: .0001pt; text-align: center; line-height: normal;" align="center"><strong><span style="font-size: 12.0pt; font-family: '</strong></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-october-25-2019-17782" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 25 Oct 2019 19:17:59 +0000 SilverCOTReport 17782 at http://silverseek.com Top Producers Silver Mine Supply Continues To Decline JAN-JUL 2019 http://silverseek.com/commentary/top-producers-silver-mine-supply-continues-decline-jan-jul-2019-17781 <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"> Three of the largest silver producers in the world saw their combined mine supply continue to weaken in the first seven months of 2019. While Mexico and Chile experienced declines in their silver production, Peru was by far the biggest loser. Peru, which is the second-largest silver producer in the world, suffered an 11% decline in the country’s domestic mine supply Jan-Jul 2019. Even though the decline of silver mine supply at these leading producers isn’t impacting the current silver market price currently, it will likely do so as the Fed and central banks lose control of their QE money printing and asset purchase policy. In less than two weeks, the total U.S. debt has increased by another COOL $85 billion. With total U.S. public debt now at $22.92 trillion, it’s only a matter of time, maybe just a few weeks before we reach another record of $23 trillion. </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">Thursday, October 24th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.25rem; padding: 0px; border: 0px; font-style: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; font-variant-numeric: inherit; font-variant-east-asian: inherit; font-weight: 400; font-stretch: inherit; font-size: 17.008px; line-height: inherit; font-family: 'Droid Sans', sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #000000; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: #ffffff; text-decoration-style: i<p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/top-producers-silver-mine-supply-continues-decline-jan-jul-2019-17781" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Thu, 24 Oct 2019 13:05:16 +0000 SRSrocco 17781 at http://silverseek.com COT Silver Report - October 18, 2019 http://silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-october-18-2019-17780 <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"> COT Silver Report - October 18, 2019. </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">Friday, October 18th</span> </div> </div> </div> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 508px; margin-left: 0.1pt; border-collapse: collapse;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes; height: 15.75pt;"><td style="width: 381.0pt; border: solid windowtext 1.0pt; border-right: solid black 1.0pt; background: #16365C; padding: 0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; height: 15.75pt;" colspan="6" valign="bottom" nowrap="nowrap" width="508"><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: .0001pt; text-align: center; line-height: normal;" align="center"><strong><span style="font-size: 12.0pt; font-family: '</strong></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-october-18-2019-17780" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 18 Oct 2019 19:14:25 +0000 SilverCOTReport 17780 at http://silverseek.com More Unanswered Questions http://silverseek.com/commentary/more-unanswered-questions-17779 <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"> It was, after all, a simple question that sparked my interest in silver from the start.
