Positioning Ahead of Additional Dollar Weakness

Through the first three weeks of 2018, one of the key stories has been the falling US dollar. Expect this trend to continue and even accelerate as we go through the year. After peaking with a false breakout near 104 in early 2017, the US dollar (as measured by the Dollar Index) has continued to plummet in 2018. As I type, the index is near 90 and already down over 2% year-to-date. Dollar weakness has traditionally been positive for commodity prices, and the evidence of this can be seen below.

Silver shaping up to outshine gold in the months ahead

So has something fundamental changed? Or could silver snap back with some really spectacular gains in 2018, particularly if the nascent bull market in gold we have seen so far this year picks up speed?

Why You Must Own Silver in 2018

Silver has often rebounded nearly 100% within 12-15 months after bad and long bear markets. History says Silver is ripe for a similar move over the next 12 to 18 months. Since Silver follows Gold, a breakout in Gold could be a huge catalyst for Silver to test and break resistance at $20/oz. If that happens, Silver would be on its way to another, typical substantial rebound. It has happened before and we expect it will happen again. We already own a few juniors with the best silver deposits but we continue to look for junior explorers and silver plays with 5 to 10-fold potential that could benefit from a breakout in precious metals.

Silver Volume Extreme as in April 2013

During yesterday’s session silver moved back and forth in a volatile manner on volume that was the highest since April 2013. There were a few volume spikes in the meantime, but none as big as what we saw yesterday. The silver market is being very loud. But are you listening?

Silver Antidote to Bubble Craziness

U.S. stocks, according to many measures, are the most over-valued in history. We live in a Bubble Zone! Bitcoin and other cryptos are definitely in a bubble, but they could rise even higher. Bonds yield little, and in many European countries, less than zero. Central banks have created this distortion to the detriment of savers, insurance companies and pension funds.

Even More Support: Silver Moving Higher in 2018

After our conversation with Craig Hemke yesterday we are more optimistic than before. Silver and gold are set up for a stellar year and if we could convince a 100 or more of these new crypto millionaires to attack the COMEX and LBMA we could see some real fireworks. Imagine what would happen if, independently, crypto millionaires began attacking the precious metals markets? Decentralized contracts flooding into the precious markets that actually are there to take possession? Would this have any effect or would these criminal enterprises simply change the rules and move on? We know they would force the participants to accept cash, as this is how the contracts are set up, but this would only expose the problem further.

Precious Metals Markets Outlook 2018

While you can still buy gold under $1,400 and silver under $20, they remain (for now) compelling values. Silver looks especially compelling given its cheapness relative to gold and virtually every asset on the planet.

Silver Created the Greatest Transfer of Wealth in History To-Date

The past few days I have been reminded of how important silver is to our world and how silver is the one asset the world needs in order to function to a high level. Actually, silver is necessary for our world to function at even the most basic level where power/energy/information is running through wires. Silver makes it possible.

$0 Silver: The Price Point of Liberty

A few years ago when silver was approaching the magical $50 resistance point, I wrote an article claiming $50 silver as the Price Point of Liberty. Today I realize their are two price points of Liberty, $50 and somewhere before the price of silver reaches $0. Range limited, managed silver prices have been kept below $50 since 1980, regardless of inflation or the asymptotic decline in silver production and the drastic decline in production grams-per-ton and the exorbitant increase in national debt.

Liberty Dollar founder avoids imprisonment in sentencing

We have it only through a reliable intermediary that Liberty Dollar founder Bernard von Not Haus, convicted rather strangely almost four years ago of counterfeiting for issuing silver coins worth more than the originals they were supposed to be imitating, received a lenient sentence today from Judge Richard Voorhees in U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina -- six months of home confinement and three years of probation.

The Mother of all Bank Runs!

Do you remember seeing old pictures of the Great Depression which depicted "lines"? There were two types, bread lines and also lines to the front doors of banks. While we don't see any bread lines today, trust me, there are bread lines in every single state, and long ones at that. Nearly 50 million people in the U.S. survive on SNAP, EBT cards or whatever they are called in your state. Can you imagine the "confidence" it would instill if each day on your way to work you saw massive lines of people waiting for breakfast?

Backwardation in Gold And Silver

On Monday, May 14, something happened that hasn’t happened since Dec of 2008. Two successive near-month precious metals futures contracts were in backwardation at the same time. To oversimplify, backwardation is when the price of a futures contract is lower than the price in the spot market.

Perception and Propaganda

Today, we are experiencing a MAJOR inflection point in TPTB’s attempts to influence PERCEPTION with MONEY PRINTING and PROPAGANDA. This weekend’s impromptu “Spanish Bailout” was botched as badly as Facebook’s IPO, by the supposedly “top financial officials” of Europe. The “bailout” is nothing of the sort – simply €100 billion of PRINTED MONEY LOANS to insolvent Spanish banks, making them even more indebted as the Spanish economy collapses. Better yet, the money is supposed to come from the ESM – or European Stability Mechanism – which hasn’t yet been ratified by Germany!

A Blueprint to Kill JP Morgan’s Alleged Massive Manipulative Position in the Silver Futures Market

Our mission at SmartKnowledgeU, besides helping our clients to protect and grow their wealth in the face of the criminality of the global banking cartel, has always been, since day one, to also be a spark to reinstate a sound, gold-based monetary system. Bankers have released so much propaganda and deceit regarding the inability of our current fraudulent monetary system to return to a gold-based monetary system that I have written two books to be released this month and next that refutes the banker-created drivel and propaganda regarding the inapplicability of a gold-based system.

Chink in the Armor

Today, the European contagion returned, as “official efforts” to juice markets – and thus, convince investors the Greek elections and FOMC dispatch were “bullish” – have FAILED. European markets imploded and the Dow fell 136 points, while gold, silver, and the HUI rose. This week’s “European summit” CANNOT and WILL NOT produce anything remotely constructive, with several nations – particularly, Spain and Italy – requesting bailouts despite no ratified mechanism – such as the European Stability Mechanism, which Germany has yet to approve. For the fifth time this year, PMs have risen while the Dow materially declined, demonstrating a major “chink in the armor” of TPTB, whom are desperate for investors to believe PMs are not safe havens. Which of course they are, as they have been for five millenia!
