  • Silver COT Analysis: Short Squeeze in the Making [View article]
    I'll trade silver / miners either way. I don't have a target for silver up or down. Right now, I'm bullish though. The best confirmation I've seen yet of the trend up is the strength in PMs while the USD has been up. That kind of resilience can't be solely because of retail investors.

  • Head and Shoulders Pattern in Gold? [View article]
    A failed head and shoulders formation is a better indicator...the shorter-term trade will be a good opportunity either way.

  • Silver: The Best Commodity Investment in a Stimulus-Driven Slow Recovery [View article]
    Two different measurments, working adults and adults. But yes I question the stats too. Adults can be defined loosely for impact. The author of an article is not always the source either.

  • An Unpopular Commodity Stock Paying a 6.4% Dividend [View article]
    I sold my Kraft shares shortly after...hanging on to the PM though.

  • How Retail Investors Should Play GM Post-IPO [View article]
    Total agreement! The demand for the shares up to the IPO was a well executed marketing campaign. The ultimate pump and dump,supported by your government and CNBC. Any of you with a marketing or retail background...replay how this whole thing un-folded for to two weeks prior. If you want to create demand for a thing that's a so-so product in the first place, what do you do?

  • What to Do With 5 Precious Metal Royalties [View article]
    The best thing that could happen to SLW is to drop into a nice trading range for a couple of months. It may not happen, with all this volatility. Regardless, I'm still thinking you'll get a shot at $30-31.

  • What Next for Long Bonds? [View article]
    Stupid question for any of you... What happens to the interest paid back to the Fed on all the bonds they're buying? Is it taken off the table?

  • Twist on the Silver Market: Are Banks Significantly Short? [View article]
    I'm bullish on silver too. That being said, I'm not adding to any position, bullion or mining stock, yet. That type of volatility doesn't get digested in two days. Many of the PM stocks gapped up on the 4th... I'm having a hard time believing that some, if not all, would fill that gap before moving up.

    I've been wrong before though.

  • Silver Wheaton Plunging (SLW) [View article]
    That big unfilled gap on the 4th was the first sign that this was setting up. A swing this powerful was not on my radar though. 33 million shares will take some time to digest.

    Maybe we'll see a real consolidation set up. Anybody think it's a lost cause? I don't, the story still works for me. I'll be looking for a new entry point.

    All eyes on the PM sector tomorrow.

  • With Yields This Low, Is Shorting Treasuries the Trade of the Century? [View article]
    TBT's action on the official QE2 announcement was a good tell. Strange though...there was about 20+ minutes before TBT/TLT seriously moved (any theories on that?).

    I'm thinking that today was a bit painful for anyone still holding a thick book of shorts.

  • CFTC Investigates JPMorgan, HSBC: Silver Market Manipulation May Have Kept Prices Down [View article]

    Leaving the case aside, what I love to see is action like SLW has been putting up. Fills the gap below in the morning, then continuing up. That's raw strength.

  • CFTC Investigates JPMorgan, HSBC: Silver Market Manipulation May Have Kept Prices Down [View article]

    so many of these cases end in a very long, drawn out process, culminating in a slap on the wrist. Do you really see anything substantial coming out of this investigation? I'm having trouble seeing it.

    Even if the conspiracy is proved...what then?

    BTW, I'm still bullish on silver.

    I love this company, but cannot figure out why it has been performing so poorly.

  • Is Now a Bad Time to Be Short Silver? [View article]
    You're absolutely correct! People don't want to hear it. I've received a good share of downward pointing thumbs for mentioning that this will be a non-story for silver bulls...which I still am regardless of this story. I just don't have any faith in the system.
