Rob McEwen: Your readers need to appreciate: Gold is money. It is currency. I think the number of people familiar with gold will grow as people see gold as a currency. China, India, Russia are buying gold to diversify their foreign reserves. To restore the confidence in currencies, I think some central banks, such as the Chinese and possibly the Russian, will increase their gold holdings to the level that the percentage of their total currency will be greater than that of any other currency in the world. At that point, they will assert that their currency should become the reserve currency of the world.

Silver Video

Nice, really professional looking, couple of shaky facts though:


Not an endorsement of the website pumped at the end.

silver video

me likey!

we're making money off the country's collapse

this isn't good news for america

but buy silver or gold if you haven't

SteveMT's picture

The country has already been taken over.

We are the patriots. "They" are tyrants. The sheeple believe these tyrants, so they are going down with the ship called the USA. It is just about sunk away way.

We will be called upon to deal with this tyranny after the collapse, when it is even closer to us. That is our calling, we are not making money from the collapse of the country. We are just biding our time, waiting, to be ready when the time comes.

Much will be asked of us. This will not be a Happy New Year.

I cannot believe that I just wrote this, but that is how I feel about the entire situation.

You are not alone....

Lord, have mercy!

"Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern." ~~C.S. Lewis

Not making money....

Just keeping value.

I may not know the truth, but I know when I'm being lied to...

i dont know if we're really

i dont know if we're really making money in the long run, vs protection against our assured stores of wealth in denominations of FRN's. A few years ago when i was first interested (but far too timid) in metals investment i thought about it purely from a profiteering mindset. But After finally diving in and putting a good position of my wealth in them, im looking at it more in the sense of how many oz can i convert into vs how much ill be 'making' if i were to sell off.

If SHTF as everyone keeps saying, i wouldnt be looking to convert back to FRN's but would rather people to start transacting in black markets using metals.

I mean it seems more like central economic planning has waged war against the people, not the other way around. we're just trying to make sure our personal assets dont lose all valuation considering all that is paper is intrinsically worthless.

silver hit 30.92.. would be

silver hit 30.92.. would be fun to see a close over 31.00 I am dissapointed in silver. Even tho we are at 30 year highs I fully expected Silver to break out big.

I truly think we will see the big breakout within the next 180 days. I have to remind myself that we are fighting the biggest crooks in the banking world. But, the facts speak for themselves. They created a shortage by manipulating prices low for a long time. The market will correct its self as true free market dynamics of supply and demand kick in. The shorts are on the ropes.

I hope people here have taken the time to research what the true market forces are in the price of silver. This will be a once in lifetime opportunity.

Silver is rising......

Man the ship.

She's moving to port!

SIERRAH - Please don't be

SIERRAH - Please don't be disappointed. My boat is loaded but my row boats aren't fully supplied! We will have our day. Ted Butler will have his day. Ron Paul and Peter Schiff will have their day. Those who trusted sound principles will have their day.

anyone i know that knows

anyone i know that knows anything about metals is in utter amazement that silver is so high right now. i suppose its a matter of perspective. most silver bugs seen to want lower POS so they can load up more heavily on their positions before the big uptake. i dont know though, looking at silver charts over 2 and 5 years makes it look like the move from sept to december look like the start of something parabolic. imo its starting to look a lot more like historic gold charts from 2001-current.

one of these days I am fully

one of these days I am fully expecting to wake up and the see the price double overnight..

Serious question...

...are you aware of any commodity ever that was trading at 30 year highs and suddenly doubled overnight? I think probably not (there I go shooting from the hip again), and if it ever did happen, then it could not have ended well, but yet you "fully expect" this to happen with silver.

I know, I know, I know...there is manipulation which you expect will be brought to an end soon, there was a huge cftc meeting with huge shockers, the are the COT reports, but how many months has it been now since the whistleblower went public? since dodd/frank was passed? since gensler became chairman? You are only setting yourself up for a huge disappointment with such high and utterly unrealistic expectations. You are already disappointed even while we are at 30 year highs. How disappointed will you be if we go down and I serve you a heaping helping of humble pie?

Anyway, I don't want to get into a big thing here. Clearly the bullish case is not dead, but neither is the bearish case IMO. Let's see what happens next week. Happy New Year.

the old gold high when silver

the old gold high when silver hit its high was 850.00.
Gold is now 1420 it has far surpassed its old high and has stayed far above its old high. Silver is within 20.00 an ounce of its old high. It has a long way to catch up. I had money to invest which asset would I buy.. gold far above its 1980 high or silver still well below its old high. My friend, do your self a big favor. Please read about silver and how it is the most manipulated commodity in the history of the world. Look into the facts about the shortage. If you take some time to do some homework, unless you are braindead, you will see that this is the opportunity of a lifetime. Soon once that manipulation is broken by supply/demand or the manipulation is stopped from the CFTC. Silver will absolutly explode. You have to understand something. there are 1000's of large corporations who have to have silver to keep factories open. once they catch the drift that silver is short in supply they will spend easily 500 million dollars to buy as much silver as they can just like Sumitomo did in Japan from korean Zinc. Sumitomo see's the writing on the wall.. Korean Zinc made a big mistake. Just take some time and study both sides.
Very happy New Year to you and yours and may you have a wonderful 2011!

There's going to be lots of paperless currencies...

I think we could see many different competing currencies just start emerging.

Not just gold and silver. Electronic currencies.

There's already a huge assortment such as alertpay and others....so with nanotechnology...I would guarantee there will be lots of different currencies.

Of course...the more competitors now entering the market as things change...would make it impossible for the elite to take advantage & profit off it any longer.

i dont expect any normal

i dont expect any normal investors could pull that off either. Consider however the effect it would have in POS if china led sovereign buying spree of PM's in force all at once instead of taking the slow, patient approach. i wouldnt expect to see it but i wouldnt discount its highly possible to happen.

It makes no difference. You

It makes no difference. You have thousands of companies that depend on silver to make goods. Look up Sumitomo group and their recent purchase of silver from Korean zinc. We don't need the "investor" to buy.. Company panic will take care of the buying.
Once they panic buy the investor will not find any silver till the price skyrockets upword. It is very easy for those companies to buy 15 million ounces at one time.

How many companies are there

How many companies are there which use silver as a part of their business who would not be able to find a cheaper substitute once the price becomes prohibitive?

Necessity is the mother of invention, and if there is anything that history has taught us, it's that when ANYTHING becomes too highly priced invention and creativity come into play to squeeze out inefficiency.

If silver "suddenly" hit $60/oz alternatives that make better economic sense would become far more attractive, which would have the end effect of reducing the cost of silver due to lessened demand.

thats just it.. there are no

thats just it.. there are no substitutes. There is no other metal that can do all the things silver can do thats why 3+ billion ounces of the stuff has been consumed in the past 30 years.. not because of cost but there is no other substitute. Actually silver will be replacing Palladium and platinum in car cataletic converters soon. Silver is the most precious metal on the planet.. its just not widely realized yet.

I'm willing to bet your

I'm willing to bet your entire silver stash that the market will find a way if the price becomes prohibitive. I believe in the power of creativity, invention and capitalism. If your scenario becomes real, I believe my scenario would kick into high gear.

anyone else take advantage of

anyone else take advantage of the red move downwards yesterday lol. who knows i was afraid to miss out on another big leg up in price. shoulda picked more up last week at 28.80. if it goes back to that ill have to get more.

Sierra i sent you an email/pm the other day.


I am going into the new year putting our past differences behind me.

I want to extend to you and yours
my best wishes for a healthy, and prosperous,



That is awesome

I hope all can learn from your comment! Thanks...Made my day!

vlbc... we may disagree and

vlbc... we may disagree and get on each others nerves but you are my brother in Liberty and I will always be right beside you. God Bless and I am wishing you and yours a wonderful 2011.

"you are my brother in

"you are my brother in Liberty" - I held back the tears after reading this. No I am not joking.

SIERRA (note the caps, bro), I feel better already!

I recently read a book called Anger Kills
by Redford Williams, M.D. and Virginia Williams, Ph.D.

Anger kills ... it kills the angry individual.

I decided that I don't want to be so angry anymore!

Seems like they are trying

Seems like they are trying hard to keep silver from running. I now am noticing the talk about the price going down as soon as NYSE opens. :P

this is what I think.. the

this is what I think.. the Asians and Arabs are moving money slowly in to silver. It is such a small market that if they tried to move all their money at one time it would send the price to orbit. So you these see little drops but then silver comes right back.

The smart money knows the situation in silver. They know the shorts are naked and caught. But if they over run them now they will have only a fraction of their money in position. So they are slowly building their position before the they start the panic.


I've been telling you guys this since 2008. One year from now silver will hit $180.00 and gold $5,000 per oz. Have a safe and happy new year before the riots start in March.

12/30/2011 silver $180 ?

If your prediction of $180 silver within a year is fulfilled, expect at least $10/gallon gas for our cars.
