    Even with the CFTC in a state of flux, it's painfully apparent it stands for the Complete Farce Trade Commission under your great middle class protector. Things are taking on a Princess Bride tone. Since you know that we know that you know we're manipulating the price, we'll just hammer it to where we make the most money on the futures.

    The number is still low compared to where we've been at the last few years, but as long as Wall St. gets to party that's all that seems to matter.

    Doesn't even keep up with the population growth. As soon as tapering starts the metal goes up. Smoke and mirrors.

    Copper down because of China bond default more than because the economy is strong! Computer generated stories so I guess I should not expect too much.

    Maybe silver down because solar company default means less silver demand. Or manipulation hammers price because it fits economy is awesome story.

    yes, absolutely. "stockpiling silver." so as well has Japan been.
    the yen got crushed today...they could be heading towards a hyperinflation in Japan "and a more generalized inflation" which has been going on in China for decades now.

    Good buying opportunity by this S/G price manipulation done few hours ago. Load the boat, the King has no clothes as we know!
