Silver at bargain basement prices… stack it now.

Wow… have you seen the price of silver today? Under $20/oz.

Seems to me to be a great buying opportunity if you can find any.

silverPaul Stramer wrote on his blog today, “Now this morning the banksters are driving the price of silver down UNDER $20 per ounce. What could their strategy be? Simple. The only people playing the over inflated stock market are the big banksters, and they are getting ready to get out of the stock market altogether. They need someplace to put those funds, and they are creating that place to go by manipulating the price of precious metals.”

I’ve believed for many months now the rise in the stock market has been a calculated manipulation before the big crash.

Stramer wrote, “This has happened before. Look at 2007 and 2008. The stock market broke new all time records then at over 14,000 points, and silver was selling for less than $10 per ounce at one point. After that the stock market crashed, the big boys having vacated the market, and what happened to silver? The price bounced off of $50 at least for a few days, and has been gradually coming down since.

They are getting ready to do it again, with the stock market again at a record high of over 15,000 points.

They are manipulating silver to create a place to jump too just before the crash that they know is coming.”

Is Silver Headed To $5/oz?

Is Jason Hommel saying silver is headed to $5 per ounce?

I don’t think so. Hommel is just kidding.

In fact, he says, there is no explanation for the drop in silver and gold prices, other than the standard “manipulation” by the banks who trade in futures contracts.

CashThe oceans of currency being printed by the US are not yet flowing to silver. But they will, and then silver prices will rise sharply.

Interest rates have been manipulated for years now, and because it would be lunacy to bankrupt American business, they cannot be allowed to rise to compete with gains in the precious metals market in order to stop the bull market in gold and silver.

The bond market is huge—in the $20 to $50 trillion range. If interest rates rise, bond values go down. In a collapsing bond market, bond investors will move to protect their trillions, and opt for gold and silver.

The world’s central banks and Western governments cannot let markets naturally purge themselves, as the markets are too grotesquely out of balance and mismatched in size.

But they can’t keep interest rates low forever, either, because real rates are now negative, with interest rates well below the real inflation rate. People are being paid to borrow money: That is uneconomic, and unsustainable.

Imagine if interest rates went over 20% like the last time they were allowed to rise, in 1980, to contain gold prices. Seventeen trillion dollars in debt financed at 20% would be something like $4 trillion per year in debt payments alone.

That kind of currency printing to pay bondholders would be highly inflationary, driving silver prices well beyond $1,000 per ounce. Thus, the bull market in gold and silver is far from over.

Hommel expects silver to head past $75 in the next year or two. Now is the time to sell bonds, real estate, and currencies, and buy silver. Buy on the dip, while you still can.
