The extra currency in circulation creates price inflation. Silver prices, along with most other commodities, rise due to currency devaluation. Silver is used in war materials and war production, so demand rises, which also causes prices to rise. Conclusion: We expect silver prices to rise at the beginning of new wars or the escalation of major and costly wars. There is little doubt that both World Wars and the Vietnam War were costly and important to the U.S. economy. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="https://silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Gary Christenson </div> </div> </div> <p><strong>Why Silver Cycles and<span style="color: #000000;"> War Cycles?</span></strong></p><p><span style="color: #000000;">Because silver prices and wars are connected, and because cycles have predictive value when viewed over the long term.

It will lead to higher gold prices if it continues. This is being reflected in today’s prices. There is strength to the rise in gold price that we had not seen before in the previous attacks on $1,300. The causes are solid too. These are; an overvaluation of the dollar, a resuscitation of U.S. demand for physical gold, a dearth of sellers of gold, Shanghai’s demand for gold remains strong as it does in London! </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="https://silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Julian D.W.

We have no doubt now that global gold prices are here to stay and that the impact of COMEX ‘paper’ gold prices has almost been removed as the significance of New York’s gold prices has diminished, in favour of the global gold price.
