Silver isn't free, but the price is right and the London "fix" is ending in August.

Who knows?

The banksters certainly have other schemes to rig precious metal prices, but I'm glad the London "fix" is being covered in the mainstream news. It brings attention to the men behind the curtain.

The gold and silver markets should be free of "fixing," rigging and manipulation. Any coverage that exposes it is fine with me.

and the price goes down... OH

and the price goes down... OH BUT THAT ELLIOT WAVE... IT'S NOT BECAUSE OF MANIPULATION.... IT'S DEFLATION... LMFAO....

yes its deflation!!!

people are buying silver coins because of the Elliot wave is deflating. Industrial demand is strong too because of deflation ROTFLMAO
