How much over spot is a good price for silver and gold?
A good price for a 1 oz silver coin like an American Eagle or Canadian Maple Leaf is 12% over spot, and a good price for a 1 oz silver bar is 6% over spot.
For gold, a good price for a 1 oz gold coin like an American Eagle or Canadian Maple Leaf is 4% over spot, and a good price for a 1 oz gold bar is 2% over spot.
The larger premium for silver compared to gold indicates a shortage in the physical silver market.
Now that GATA has blown the doors off the LBMA ponzi scheme, and we know there is only 1 oz of silver for every 100 oz represented on paper, why hasn’t there been a panic to dump paper and go into physical? What will it take to trigger a short squeeze?
We don’t believe there is only 1 oz of physical silver for every 100 oz represented on paper. Most likely, there is 1 to 3 times more paper silver than physical silver. This is still a major problem that will ultimately result in a major silver shortage and short squeeze, once a large number of COMEX holders begin to demand physical delivery of silver. This is a topic that we will be covering extensively in our new documentary coming out next month.
If the silver market is controlled by JP Morgan and others, how does the little guy stand a chance of making money?
The manipulation by JP Morgan through naked short selling is providing an opportunity for normal everyday investors to purchase silver at dirt-cheap prices. Without JP Morgan’s naked short selling, it’s possible silver would already be well above $30 per ounce right now.
Remember, JP Morgan is not manipulating silver up, they are manipulating it down and the manipulation can’t last forever. When investors around the globe call for physical delivery of their silver, there will be a shortage of physical silver and JP Morgan will be forced to cover their naked short position, causing silver prices to explode to the upside.
NIA believes silver will eventually see the biggest short squeeze in the history of all commodities.
