Silver: Supported by D.C. and The Deep State

Silver is necessary for military, computer and medical applications. Investors often prefer silver bullion and coins because they don’t trust government, the Deep State or the Federal Reserve to protect the value of currencies. Investor demand for silver will rise as central banks and politicians lose credibility. Expanding wars will increase demand for silver. Rising energy prices will escalate mining costs. The price of silver has little downside risk and considerable upward potential, perhaps to triple digits within a few years.

Silver Bottoming Almost Complete

See how the bottoms and tops of the respective charts line up. Last year, when the US Dollar index was in decline (between the two dotted red lines), silver failed to rise. This was also the case in 2002 (see between the two red lines). However, when the US Dollar continued into a deeper fall (after the two red lines), silver eventually started to rise significantly. The Dollar is currently making its last attempts to go higher, before we will see a major decline. When that decline starts (which is likely to be soon), the silver price will take off a big way.

As the Fed and Central Banks continue to pump huge amounts of liquidity into the market, investors have been buying record amounts of Canadian Silver Maples. Demand for the Canadian Gold & Silver Maples hit a record in 2011, but then declined in 2012 as investors started to believe that the monetary authorities had the financial system back under control -- an illusion that will cost them dearly in the future.

Eric Coffin’s Exclusive Interview with Eric Fier, COO of SilverCrest Mines Inc.

In a sector that has drawn so much market scorn in the past two years, this is a team that just gets it done. I think the current pull back is a perfect time for you to hear the story of this leader in the small producer space and get Eric Fier’s views on why SilverCrest has been such a success. There are lessons and observations that can be applied by traders looking for other winners.

The Financial Cancer is No Longer Dormant

If this is indeed “the Big One,” the timeframe to PROTECT oneself may run out very, very quickly. Hopefully, you have spent the past five years preparing for the inevitable, global currency crash; and if you haven’t, what are you waiting for? All aspects of one’s life should be considered; but when it comes to the financial aspect, only PHYSICAL gold and silver have maintained their purchasing power throughout similar crises – and likely, will benefit more than any other asset class from what’s coming. Whether or not the “greatest wealth transfer in history” occurs – from those holding fiat-currency denominated wealth to those holding real assets – we don’t know, but we suspect it will. Either way, the odds of surviving what’s coming will increase exponentially if you limit your exposure to the financial cancer enveloping the world; i.e., the destruction of fiat currencies.

We have seen a few articles announcing the end of the metals bull market and we will explain why this is significant to us later in this article.

Europe in Focus

Over the weekend, the European political/economic conflagration worsened further, with the Spanish Prime Minister forced to re-assure the populace on national TV that “this is not the eve of the Apocalypse” – which it is, of course, from a financial standpoint. European equities were flat to down, although Spain and Italy enjoyed a brief respite by BEGGING the EU to create some cockamamie “governing board” to take over their finances. It will never happen, but allowed those two markets mild dead-cat bounces. Following Friday’s major PM up day, prices have been holding their own all day with the Dow down yet again – particularly gold, now just $6 from its Friday close. With Wednesday’s ECB meeting and Bernanke’s Thursday speech before a Joint Congressional Economic Committee about the near-term outlook, be prepared for ANYTHING this week.
