Silver has gone from being the cartel’s kryptonite to being its LHC, or Large Hadron Collider. There are a lot of theories on what is going on with silver but the reality will probably be something even more fantastic. I keep getting back to lumber by way of comparison. The OI in silver is 55 times higher than in lumber, yet the global physical lumber market by dollar volume is actually higher. – quote from LeMetropole Cafe’s “Midas” Report

Those of us who have studied and traded silver for a long time (16 years in my case), have concluded that the Western Central Banks have painted themselves into a corner with their multi-decade effort to control the price of silver. Central Banks ran out of silver to unload on the market a long time ago.

In the last year, the amount of paper silver sold short against the available supply physical silver has grown into an astronomical number. At this point the banks can only pray that less than 1% of the longs each delivery period will continue to settle the contracts in cash…

“As a fiduciary, to the extent that you own gold and are going to own it a long time, it is not a trade….in the COMEX warehouse they had $80 Billion of open interest, and $2.7 Billion of deliverables….thats an easy one, you go get it.”  -Kyle Bass

Kyle: “What if 4% of the people want delivery?”

Kyle: “Well, what if it does happen?”
COMEX Delivery Manager: “Oh, well price will solve everything.”
Kyle: “I said thanks, give me the gold.”

Here’s the link to that interview with Kyle Bass: “I’ll Take My Gold, Please”

The Daily Coin chatted with GATA’s Bill “Midas” Murphy about the current degree of manipulation in the silver market. The banking cartel is trapped, in a sense. The only resolution of this dilemma is a much higher price of silver – the free market solution – or war:
