Yes, by all means continue to go after the spoofers, but try to consider that spoofing is only a tool that enables a much deeper price manipulation run by JPMorgan. As much as I am trying to not to get my hopes up that the DOJ might stumble upon the real crime in silver and gold, I do confess to sensing a slight crack in the dike. Coupled with other things, like JPMorgan having now accumulated more physical silver and gold than I could ever have imagined a few short years ago and the incredible physical movement in and out of the COMEX-approved silver warehouses, it’s hard for me to see how there won’t be a resolution of the ongoing price manipulation in the immediate future. </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, November 8th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 8pt;"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: 'Verdana', sans-serif; line-height: 107%; color: #000000;">Tuesday’s announcement by the Department of Justice of a guilty plea by a former trader of JPMorgan for systemic “spoofing” and price manipulation of gold, silver, platinum and palladium traded on the COMEX and NYMEX futures exchanges (owned by the CME Group) sure seemed like a very big deal to me for a number of reasons.</span></p><p><a href="https://w3w.silverseek.com/commentary/crack-dike-17474" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Thu, 08 Nov 2018 14:31:43 +0000 Theodore Butler 17474 at https://w3w.silverseek.com Silver Market Update https://w3w.silverseek.com/commentary/silver-market-update-17470 <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"> On its 10-year chart we can see that silver has basically been moving sideways marking out a low base pattern since late 2014 – late 2015, following a severe bearmarket from its 2011 highs. For a while this year it was thought to be marking out a downsloping Head-and-Shoulders bottom, but with the renewed decline from June through late August, it was clear that the pattern had morphed into something else, and on the basis of what we are seeing in other metals, principally copper, gold and platinum, it now looks like it may instead be completing a large Double Bottom pattern, and if this is what it is, then it is very close to the 2nd low of the Double Bottom here, and thus at an excellent point to buy. </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">Sunday, November 4th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;">Silver continues to be a singularly neglected and unloved investment, and has been for years now, but as we will proceed to see, this is not a situation that is likely to continue for much longer. </span></p><p><a href="https://w3w.silverseek.com/commentary/silver-market-update-17470" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 05 Nov 2018 00:49:52 +0000 Clive Maund 17470 at https://w3w.silverseek.com COT Silver Report - November 2, 2018 https://w3w.silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-november-2-2018-17468 <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 - November 2, 2018 </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, November 2nd</span> </div> </div> </div> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 551px; border-collapse: collapse;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tbody><tr style="height: 15.75pt; mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes;"><td style="border-top: windowtext 1pt solid; height: 15.75pt; border-right: black 1pt solid; width: 413pt; background: black; border-bottom: #f0f0f0; padding-bottom: 0in; padding-top: 0in; padding-left: 5.4pt; border-left: windowtext 1pt solid; padding-right: 5.4pt;" colspan="6" valign="bottom" nowrap="nowrap" width="551"><p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center; margin: 0in 0in 0pt; line-he</td></tr></tbody></table><p><a href="https://w3w.silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-november-2-2018-17468" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 02 Nov 2018 19:14:29 +0000 SilverCOTReport 17468 at https://w3w.silverseek.com “Good news is not necessarily good news.” - Eric Sprott on current sentiment https://w3w.silverseek.com/commentary/%E2%80%9Cgood-news-not-necessarily-good-news%E2%80%9D-eric-sprott-current-sentiment-17467 <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 Boys—the commercial banks—when gold first moved back up into the 1230s, they sold every contract that the hedge funds who were short wanted to buy… There was just a huge reversal of roles there.
