Silver Shortage And Silver Price Analysis: XAG/USD on the rise, $27.80 crucial resistance

Silver Price Analysis: XAG/USD on the rise, $27.80 is a crucial resistance

I came across this Silver price analysis from FX street and thought it was interesting, I feel the difference between the paper markets and the physical couldn’t possibly be more stressed. Essentially the world doesn’t have enough silver at current and demand is surging leaving bullion banks taking riskier moves to keep the illusion afloat.

Silver Price Analysis

NEWS | 2/15/2021 3:03:20 AM GMT | By Omkar Godbole


  • While silver trades higher, resistance at $27.80 is still intact.
  • A move above that would confirm a range breakout.

Silver trades near $27.55 at press time, representing a 0.87% gain on the day. 

While the metal is flashing green, it is yet to take out resistance at $27.80 (the previous week’s high). 

A move above that level would imply a bullish breakout from the narrowing price range signaled by the previous week’s candle, whose high and low falls well within the preceding week’s price range. 

Above $27.80, the focus would shift to $30.09, the high seen earlier this week. On the other hand, acceptance under the previous week’s low of $27.31 would put the bears in a commanding position, exposing support at $24.06, the higher low created on Jan. 6.

SLV Won’t Break The Bullion Banks… But They Can Be Broken

We have identified a critical weakness in the bullion industry

The silver market is incredibly weak right now and reading through an article from Bullion Star really made me reflect on some of the structural weaknesses of the silver market. The silver supply is always the strongest fundamental reason to own silver. The bullion banks could be easily punished but it won’t be through SLV but buying physical silver. The paper market and the physical market are worlds apart hence the huge premiums on Silver Eagles and notices from big bullion dealers. If you want to crush the bullion banks buy physical silver.

Even the suggestion of a short squeeze on SLV sent everything connected to silver rising in anticipation and the move was huge despite some people’s suggestion that silver jumping nearly $3 at open is normal. That takes an enormous fortune to move SLV. We need to learn from what happened in regards to the physical silver market bullion dealers went from limited supply to no supply. If you want to expose the fraud and manipulation you need to expose the fact there is no silver to back up the paper market. As we’ve seen this could be accomplished with ease.

{The silver short squeeze in physical silver at present is unprecedented. Even so, the spot price of paper silver is not even close to the real physical equilibrium price of silver.  BullionStar may soon have no option but to abandon setting prices based on silver spot price altogether and move to fixed prices.

Thanks to  r/WallStreetBets (WSB) and related spin offs, the wider public is starting to open its eyes to the corruption and cronyism in the financial markets including in the paper gold and paper silver markets.

For years, BullionStar has been one of the strongest critics of the manipulated precious metals markets where paper issuance of silver (out of thin air) exceeds the physical availability of real silver at a multiple of at least 100 to 1.

While some in the WSB movement have suggested purchases of SLV shares and call options, many others are recommending physical silver. It’s important to understand that purchases of SLV shares does not equate to putting pressure on bullion banks. Bullion banks provide various services to ETF’s, such as custodial services, and ETF’s are known for colluding with central banks. The only way to put pressure on the corrupted paper silver market and on the bullion banks is to buy physical silver. Only then is there a chance that price discovery for real physical silver will shift to be based on the actual trading of physical silver instead of being inherited from synthetic paper trading prone to manipulation.}

To break the paper silver market requires exactly what we saw, people buying physical silver. With 60% of the worlds production shut down for months last year to maniac central bankers printing money until the dollar dies silver is looking better and better.

The CME Sets New Margin Requirements Following The Wall Street Bets Silver Short Squeeze, Premiums Soar On Silver Shortage

The Fundamentals For Silver Are Incredible, There Is No Supply And Insane Demand

I wanted to talk about the Wall Street Bets Silver Short Squeeze and physical silver shortage that has plagued the precious metals markets for much of the past year, The recent move in silver has a lot of people’s attention and no I don’t mean us. I mean the real movers and shakers who have never noticed Us, We the People for decades. We have watched GME begin to unwind after delivering a nearly $8.8 Billion dollar blow to some of the most powerful people in the world.

the CME Group announced it was raising margins on Comex silver futures by 18% after futures surged to an eight-year high, the exchange said in a statement.

Margins will rise to $16,500 per contract from $14,000, effective Feb. 2, according to the exchange. “The decision is based on “the normal review of market volatility to ensure adequate collateral coverage,” it said in a statement.

Silver dropped 2% on the news, falling from just above $29/oz to just below, overall we’re sitting much higher than we were the other day and It’s likely the move would have been more pronounced if it hadn’t been for so many thinking this was a trick.

Another factor about the precious metals market is these banks are liars and don’t really have the metal. They utilize naked shorting strategies to spoof the markets to play the margins all day and sometimes this leads to huge drops which costs all precious metals investors.

While the margin hike has predictably pressured the price of paper silver lower, the disconnect between paper and physical just hit a record high as insatiable demand in the physical space is being offset by attempts to depress paper prices. We showed this in the delta between the price of one American Eagle coin and one Silver future, which reached a record 30%, or almost $14 per ounce. The lack of physical supply of silver is putting a hurting on their system as more is revealed the more demand continues to wreck the system. This could be suggestive they are manipulating the price of silver hard right now and a price closer to $100 makes more sense in relation to inflation.

The other thing is the bullion dealers have a lack of inventory we do know since they are changing margin rules they do fear a systemic event possibly as a result of the Wall Street Bets Silver short squeeze. I’m sorry how is this wrong it’s people all taking risks on risky assets like retailers during the great contraction happing in the commercial real estate market.

A great example was compiled by Zerohedge

The shortage of physical silver is exposing a tear in the precious metals market unlike any we have seen before.

As we detailed below, various executives from bullion dealers have explained that huge demand has left them with no supply (and no source) for physical silver.

And while silver futures prices (paper silver) have ‘stabilized’ modestly during the day…

Physical silver prices remain at extremes…

And, as the chart below indicates, that massive premium is unprecedented…

Simply put, the establishment can print all the paper silver it wants, but there is no physical supply… and that likely ends badly for those attempting to suppress reality for too long.

As we noted over the weekend, online bullion dealers saw such huge demand for silver ahead of today’s moves as ‘Reddit-Raiders’ prepared to take aim at the precious metals markets.

Sites from Money Metals and SD Bullion to JM Bullion and APMEX, all halted sales amid the unprecedented demand.

Silver Is A Trap!? Let’s Examine The Fact’s

So Some of the subscribers have been asking about Tim Pool’s video saying buying silver was a trap. Let me begin by saying I do not believe He was doing this for nefarious reasons, at least I hope He wasn’t but I believe He was just looking for content for a couple of reasons. I personally shared one of the top posts from the Reddit page And saw huge commitments from whales to go in on Silver. I also bought shares in the companies they were suggesting after reading the Biggest short squeeze in history posts. They’re right about silver and Wall Street Bets is a chat board so of course you can go through Reddit and find members who don’t want people to buy silver and they are trying to trick people into stop buying into GME.

They are wrong and We should all pile into silver and squeeze out shorts just like the following from, exhibit A: The fact The Wall Street Bets Short Squeeze on GME Was a Tremendous Success They Forced these megabanks to dump their positions into extremely overvalued prices. There were close to $8.8 billion in losses. THAT’S MISSION ACCOMPLISHED, NOW DO SILVER!

BY TYLER DURDEN

After starting the day solidly in the green, Gamestop – along with other most shorted names – traded as high as $383 after Robinhood eased its trading limits over the weekend, which saw the brokerage effectively halt trading in as many as 50 stocks.

However, the early euphoria did not last long, and moments ago the stock tumbled as much as 34%, before getting halted after triggering a circuit breaker.

While there was no actual news, traders were scrambling to figure out if there was a catalyst to the move.

There was: according to an update from trading analytics firm S3 Partners (published at 1023am ET), after holding steady in the triple digits, the company’s short interest plunged, with the company’s founder Ihor Dusaniwsky reporting that according to the firm’s analytics as of this morning, “short interest is just $8.82BN or 27.12M shares shorted” as the shares short have declined by a whopping 35.2 million shares over the last week.

According to S3 calculations, this represents just 53.15% short interest of the % Float (or 34.1% using S3’s version of SI % Float which excludes synthetic share); Confirming that shorting is now far easier, the borrow fee has plunged from 26% to just 10% indicating that millions of shares have indeed been unlocked for shorting.

And the same short interest data, only viewed as a % of the float, also from S3 Partners:

And with both short interest and borrow fees tumbling, the main catalyst behind the squeeze – namely GME being the most shorted Russell 3000 stock – is now gone.

Which begs the question: is the party finally over, and how long before GME trades back near its true value.

So that was an internet theory that buying silver is a trap, what a foolish thing, maybe not purposely but only a fool thinks buying silver is a bad idea during a hyperinflationary superstorm depression. Buying silver is not buy a product. SILVER IS MONEY, GOLD IS MONEY and when you exchange dollars for silver in many states there’s no tax because you’re just transferring your wealth to another form of money, it’s not lost or wasted it’s preserved. Holding your savings in dollars is suicide at this point considering the epic surge in money printing. I think Silver is real money and in a world with an international rush to devalue Fiat currencies Silver and Gold is a lifeboat.

This Is Insane! Apex Overwhelmed With Record Silver Demand And Makes Statement On Physical Silver Shortage

This is Just insane The largest Bullion dealers are running low, they talk about fighting over the last scraps in the marketplace and soaring premiums moving forward. The Excitement stirred up into silver by Wall Street Bets is enough to strip the shelves and it’s strange to see the Silver Bull market might be what actually ends some of these bullion companies because it seems there is just no silver supply available and there is no room for any increase in demand for physical silver

APMEX Statement On Current Market Conditions:

Sold Out 12X Demand

In the last week, we have seen a dramatic shift in Silver demand from our customers. For example, the ratio of ounces sold per day was running about two times earlier in the week and closer to four times the average demand by the end of the week. Once markets closed on Friday, we saw demand hit as much as six times a typical business day and more than 12 times a normal weekend day. Combined with the extremely high demand levels, we are also seeing a surge in new customers. On Saturday alone, we added as many new customers as we usually add in a week.

Any Precious Metal dealer will take a long position in the futures market to protect against spot price exposure when the markets open. We do this because it is our goal not to take a speculative position on metal. The weekends are unique as we are not able to real-time hedge our position. We took an aggressive position this weekend, but clearly could not have predicted the volumes that were seen. We have partnerships around to world that allowed us to cover these long positions, but only to a point. Once we exceeded our comfort levels, we had little choice but to stop the sale of Silver on our website. This was a difficult decision to make and unprecedented in our history.

As we evaluate the markets, it is difficult to know where Silver’s price and demand will go in the coming day and weeks. APMEX is highly capitalized and has more than $150 million in inventory to support demand. We have made strategic decisions to procure additional metal, locking up any metal we can find in the market place. We suspect premiums will rise and rise quickly, as we are seeing significant increases in our costs, when we can even locate the metal. It is also highly likely that we will need an additional day or two to fill orders based on current order counts. The one guarantee we can make to our customers is that you will only be sold metal that is on-site, or we have procured the metal with a firm commitment date from our partners. In markets like this, we feel this is the best approach a retailer can take, as no one can predict product availability.

We want to thank our customers for their patience and understanding during these turbulent times. APMEX prides itself on best in class service and delivering on promises to our customers.

Regards,

Ken Lewis

Silver Shares or Silver Bullion? Learn the dangers

Today we have our good old friend the Federal Reserve coming out and they’re trying to beat down this dollar bleed out that’s been taking place, and they just want to put a nice little reminder out for everybody that they are going to be raising interest rates again so don’t get too excited and so we seem to put a temporary stop on to the hemorrhaging US dollar. They’re blaming it on “everyone’s focused on Trump’s plans now”.

One thing I wanted to discuss gold ETFs and silver ETFs. They have been rising in popularity due to the convenience they’re also easy to trade there’s no need to store anything. No one is going to break in and steal shares. One of the hidden dangers that we find in the structure and the operation of ETFs, and a few investors are unaware of this. The reason that people buy gold and buy silver is to hedge. They buy it as a safe haven, to be able to protect their assets.




Considering the public’s waning trust in the banking system many investors they’re forgetting one thing that really needs to be understood.

for example SPDR gold trust GLD the largest most popular gold ETF is an investment fund that holds physical gold to back shares. At least that’s what they say. Now you can only claim your physical gold or take physical delivery if you own a minimum of 100,000 shares most investors don’t. At a $1,000 a share a hundred thousand shares is a million dollars, and so they provide cash.

The big issue that a lot of people don’t really consider is the fact that these major banks are the custodians of your SLV or GLD shares. For example they use HSBC to source and store the gold and so trusting in your custodian of your gold or silver, while we’ve been seeing a massive bleed out in the financial sector
One big thing to focus on and why it is a major risk is if you’re buying gold or silver for an economic collapse!

What initiated the 2008 financial crisis?

If you think back there was an announcement made in the papers that Lehman Brothers was bankrupt prior to that it was business as usual. Everyone had their money in, everything was normal, everything was running just smooth like an engine. they announced that they were bankrupt at which point there was a massive shock and the stock market went red everything went under. Mass amounts of wealth was lost in a moment of time now Lehman Brothers was one of the biggest financial institutions in the world at that time. So we also have to pay attention to put people like Deutsche Bank and people keep saying that’s old news, but it only takes a single headline to bring down this entire financial sector, they’re all interconnected bring them all down HSBC will not be untouched untainted from this and these massive banks when one goes, they all go just like a set of dominoes.




now these banks “holding” your gold or silver if the reason that you’re buying gold or silver is to be able to protect yourself in case of another financial collapse that’s what we see the world all over is buying silver and gold right now because they see that there is a great danger going on in the stock market. They See it doesn’t make sense anymore according to typical investing
this collapses here and it’s imminent. Not having physical gold and physical silver in your possession leaves you in a position that’s not very advantageous especially whenever the normal litigation process is not going to be operating as usual. in fact they’re going to take their gold take their silver go to their nice bunkers that they’ve laid out for themselves while the rest of us all duke it out fighting over food and you’ll see empty shelves and violence! that’s not going to be very beneficial for you to have a bunch of paper shares.

there are some benefits because some people want to take advantage of the short-term price of gold and silver and they want to get into ETF trading and they wanted to make a short profit and they can move in and move out so there are some benefits in the short term.




but if you’re buying gold or buying silver for this collapse that you can see coming. If you can see through their net, you can see through all of their smoke and mirrors. you see that as soon as the US dollar begins to bleed out the Federal Reserve is out there desperate to try to slow the move on gold they see that this is unconventional what is taking place what
They know they’re losing control of gold they’re losing control of silver, they’re losing control of the dollar they’re losing control of the economy, they can no longer keep up the facade.

so they’re coming out desperate just please make us headline news again. Everyone remember there’s going to be more interest rate hikes. what we’re seeing is the end of their system the end of their manipulation you don’t want to be left when the musical chairs comes to a stop. You can benefit from getting into it now in shares. But when the music stops on this game of musical chairs you don’t want to be left without your seat.

What is The Federal Reserve How Did a Private Bank Seize American Economy

2910473-detail-from-the-one-dollar-bill-showing-the-pyramid-with-eye-and-the-inscription-annuit-coeptis--we-

The Federal Reserve System or simply the Fed is the central banking system of the United States. It was created on December 23, 1913, with the enactment of the Federal Reserve Act in response to a series of financial panics (particularly the panic of 1907) that showed the need for central control of the monetary system if crises are to be avoided. Over the years, events such as the Great Depression in the 1930s and the Great Recession during the 2000s led to the expansion of the roles and responsibilities of the Federal Reserve System.

Based on the opening statement I want to draw your attention to two very important factors. Crisis was created to bring about it’s creation And Crisis is the vehicle that has granted it more power. previous attempts were made the bring the united states under private centralized control but heroic wise moves were made to end this takeover. The Banks that run the federal reserve are anything but federal. Dating back to the same institutions conquering of Europe. When the United States was formed much of the constitution was written to prevent the same type of infiltration. Like Congress has the power to issue money. the need for silver and gold as money.




But their time-tested strategy is panic and economic crisis. Which few realize that possessing such vast sums of material wealth in 1913 the Rothschilds owned much of European wealth through central bank control. It always afforded them enough capital to infiltrate the U.S. Stockmarket and institute a panic. The old modo never let a good crisis go to waste. So they presented themselves as the perfect solution. The back door meeting on Jekyll island was filled only with conspirators who knew the reason for the takeover. The Panic was to make the public accept their devious plan. The term Federal was adopted so future generations would be fooled and unaware that a private bank had used subversive tactics to take control of the issue of the peoples money in the United States.

For this very reason Crisis is guaranteed. They Gain more control through panic and have the finance and power to initiate panic at any time. There is no coincidence they have instituted the same plan in nations all over the world. it was never created for prosperity but private banks bought control of our nations money and have become the most powerful organization ever known. If they are discovered Panic will make the people forget. independent ownership of silver and gold by the citizens is the only course to rectify this situation. there will never be elected another president that will end their reign of power since the last attempt by John F Kennedy.


JP Morgan theft by deception

The danger we really face is that our economy is not free. The playing field is not level. over the past 4 years JP Morgan Chase has posted only two days of losses. In a market that has had massive drops on multiple occasions. The real issue is that with all the consumer sentiment at new highs is the fact that they think they will get a piece.

This is not going to happen. What is going to happen is that these massive banks will continue their criminal activity with no recourse from the government because they are bought and paid for. the independent acquisition of gold and silver by the citizens is the only defense of a free people from this dots and zeros tyranny. The freedom of the republic needs more than complaining about the Jekyll island plot. It happened face it.



No one is coming to help. the continuation of this system is not feasible because it will lead to austerity measures being issued by the banks on the citizens. the purpose of the federal reserve is to bring the united states economy under their dominion and it is always effective.

The founding fathers warned of this day as Thomas Jefferson wisely put it but we are asleep. These were men who came from tyranny and governments conquered by central banks the same families who now own ours.

Price watchers that’s how we all spend our first months The Key is You are a Stacker Now

3 large silver bars_full
The reason I brought up this topic is in relation to your first silver purchase. You may spend every day watching the silver price. You probably downloaded a price tracker app on your phone. We all do it don’t feel like that’s not normal. Transitioning from being asleep into a silver stacker is planning for the future and it’s money that could have been used for other things.

Lets face it you would have wasted that money on nothing. The victory is you have taken that part of money out of the everyday circus and opted out of their failing system. Before long packages will be arriving at your house regularly. Something caught your attention something in the way the politicians won’t speak and keep a straight face. Let’s face it our mainstream media has turned into the band on the titanic who only plays the music to keep everyone calm as the ship goes down. while it may not pay today. I’ll take a guess you bought physical silver. The day you are preparing for will come. And regardless of the moves they make to control markets paper will not settle then. You are in possession of real wealth.




Every major crisis silver and gold prices skyrocket. but lets be clear prices do not skyrocket because the crash in 08 didn’t bring gold and silver up. The beginning of endless money printing did. That’s what has held the silver price and gold price far above the levels prior to the crash. Many people are still asleep and can’t understand. The Math is there the continual gradual increase in the price of silver is certain as a result of the devalued currency. Many factors go into to setting day to day price of precious metals. But what the fed can’t control anymore is the markets as we just saw when the price rallied against an interest rate hike. the fed is becoming less of a factor and when that happens prepare your day is coming.
