Must read article: Short Squeeze in Silver

What is a short squeeze?

A short squeeze is one of the most exciting events in finance, and could drive silver to $100/oz. very quickly! A short squeeze happens when those who manipulate the market begin to act according to old Wall Street rhyme,

"He who sells what isn't his'n, buys it back or goes to prison!"

The silver shorts, who have been one of the key forces capping the price of silver ever since 1980, are buying back the silver they sold, the silver that they don't have, the silver that may not exist, and they are buying "contracts for it" from people who might not have it either, in a rising market, because the shorts have begun to panic.

Another way to say it, is that the fat cats are beginning to wake up, repent and change, and realize the error of their ways! Perhaps we are seeing the inevitable failure of a 100+ year war of the international bankers, a war waged against an inherent property of silver. But silver is a monetary metal, and the failure to recognize that truth has consequences.

Dan Norcini reports at http://www.jsmineset.com/ that the commercial shorts in silver last week were "buying on the way up!"

Go to the thread


Listen to the interview links under the YouTube clip. They say metals are leveraged at least 100:1! At that level, silver is worth at least $1800/oz. (I think more because it has commercial value as well and a portion of it has been consumed, therefore, no longer available.)

Get yourself some silver. Gold would be at $110,000/oz. so it's a buy too!

think about this. In 1980 the

think about this. In 1980 the US government had a 3+billion ounce stockpile of silver. THEY HAVE NONE OF IT NOW. It has been consumed. it is much more then a portion of it that has been consumed. 750 million ounces of silver are consumed every year. Your 1800.00 price maybe right on target.

BINGO.... YOU GET 5 GOLD STARS. Finally someone on here has a head to think. jeff3456098 asked me about 1500.00 dollar silver on another thread. I wasn't going to give him the answer. Let him figure it out.
You have. heres to you and your future fortune!

I realize that I have been around a bit longer then most here...

so I have a "historic" view of this hype. I do wish that folks here could have witnessed the same hype about silver when the Hunt's were munipulating the market. Same went for gold too. Up & Down..with the ONLY winners being the traders.

Imagine the time when law & order completely breaks down and "street rule" reigns. People will not be "buying or selling" they'll be stealing and killing. What in the world are you going to do with metals ( unless it's lead ! ) and who is going to be interested in it ( somehing more to "protect" ) !!!

Use your heads...or if you haven't one...pretend it's a f%#king video game then and ""PLAY IT OUT""you'll see the fultileness in loading up with something you cannot eat or shoot.

Agreed that there will be

pockets and periods of neighborhood warfare when panic sets in but I also think entrepreneurs will emerge during the lulls and they will be looking for compact wealth (gold, diamonds, etc.) as exchange for food, medicine, bullets, batteries, etc. This is not just idle speculation, it's what has happened time after time during times of strife and upheaval, even in the midst of all-out war.

I suppose if I had the wherewithal, I might stock up on hidden troves of long-term storage foods, medicines, clothing, fuels, etc. and become a post-apocalypse entrepreneur myself, hoping to amass tons of gold and silver.

if the tons of gold of silver

if the tons of gold of silver wouldn't help you during the times of warfare etc as you say. then why would tons of gold and silver do you any good when everything settles down. what peaceplace doesn't understand is that the price of silver will jump HUGE. then those profits can be used to buy the things he is talking about. Through out history, you can look at any destruction of any empire or economic system. the people who had gold or silver SURVIVED.

Once the polished "hook" doesn't work, quickly and vehemently attack them.


attack them? only when they

attack them? only when they have an agenda.. and for some reason this guy bashes metals every chance he gets.. it gets old. There are going to be fortunes made in this. the problem is people like peacplace, jeff3456098, come in here and bash metals even the evidence is overwhelming. What is their agenda? quickly and vehemently attack them.. damn right.. now not looking at the facts and offering a joke of post like yours is .....

I don't believe that for a second.

"He who sells what isn't his'n"

When the same "he" makes the rules, he will simply change them if caught on the losing end of a squeeze.

Just declare "Cash settlements only."

Move along please. Nothing to see here.

Yes - Jason Assumes the rules apply equally to the shorts.

His math suggests...

The shorts ae over shorted 4 to 1 against the physical available on the exchange.

The shorts have shorted an amount equal to half of the worlds annual production.

So that is why he thinks the big squeeze is coming to Silver.

I never hear mentioned the large stock piles that governments and or other exchanges (i.e. London) would have available. I just do not see the short term 100 oz value comming. I hope I am wrong.

If the prioce goes up how many people would sell at 25 an oz.

You never hear of "large

You never hear of "large stockpiles" that governments have, because there are NO large stockpiles. NONE! 100 an ounce? try 1500.00 an ounce. this is not 1980 when the hunts cornered 10% of the silver market. this goes way beyond anything the hunts could have imagined.

So now its $1500 an oz rebelsoul

When might this happen again?

jeff.. just go back to

jeff.. just go back to sleep.. its way over your head and you just don't understand. Go ahead and keep thos paper dollars. we will see who wins in the end. I have been on here for 3 years telling everyone about Butler and what was happening in the silver market.
I told you about the manipulation. You said hogwash.
now we have a whistleblower proving everything I said
was correct and you still come here wtih your chip on your shoulder even thos you have been proven wrong.
All you hnave to do is see how many onces of physical silver are available, look at how many ounces of silver are sold naked short and do the math. when might this happen? who knows? but then again according to you Butler was a fool and a fake and there was no manipulation. Jim Sinclair should just retire right? how many times are you going to get your teeth kicked out before you realize you are just plain wrong? I'm done trying to explain this to you. You are either a government paid troll, or are just to stupid to think clearly. In either case I am not wasting my time on you. You have the whistleblower, go back and listen to what Maguier said. Then think for once.
