Thread title is the first question...Silver has been dropping since the election but today the bottom is falling out.

Care to guess what the new price for silver will level off at?
Link Posted: 12/15/2016 12:09:22 PM EST
That would depend on where interest rates end up settling, I would guess.

$15 is a buy for me.

If the $ keeps going up who knows. I bought most of mine for around $4 many years ago, so my new level will be $4-6.

Silver and gold are rapidly moving into buy territory.

Yes, interest rates are up. For now. But much of the world's uncertainty hasn't gone away. Russia is still waging war in Syria and in Ukraine. China still wants Taiwan, and is continuing to threaten in the South China Sea. The sustained low price of oil will cause problems not just in Venezuela and Russia, but increasingly in the Middle East. And let's not forget Greece, Brexit, and the EU, none of which are settled or sustainable.

And someday, all of the worldwide monetary easing is going to have an effect, i.e. inflation.

The markets are not always rational and reasoned in the short term, and right now, precious metals look more like lemmings than bears.

Yep, the Fed increased the interest rate and, in part, the effect is that the USD is stronger today. Good time to buy is in the dips. The problem with a falling silver price is that the premiums tend to go up, and if the Silver spot price drops more, expect higher premiums or no silver to buy at the reduced price at some point.

Yup. and people are perceiving that the economy is about to do a 180. Interest rates will increase to pay down debt etc.

Maybe they'll get back up to 87% like in the 80s<img src=http://www.ar15.com/images/smilies/anim_bannana.gif border=0 align=middle>



I might buy some when it hits $5-10.

The fed announced a rate hike yesterday but you are confused by the falling value of an inflation hedge.

Mkay.

My fault. I was researching some coin values and melt prices. It's like the rain that comes out of nowhere when you wash your car......

I would look at gold way before buying any silver. Silver has been absolutely bat shit crazy the last decade. You think it should go up? Nope it's gonna go down. Strong indicators that it should go down? Fuck off, we're going to the moon! It's also not used commercially/industrially as much anymore so the actual demand for it is down.

One of my best friends used to be a precious metals trader on wall street when we were roommates, and he hated silver because it was so volatile. Gold is much more stable, and less of crazy bitch.

When gold dropped after the election, it was because the paper equivalent of 8,100 tons of gold was dumped on the market. C'mon, that's almost as much as what is supposed to be in Fort Knox.

The same ploy is done with silver and Deustches Bank just fessed up in a plea bargain about price fixing.

Conclusion? There is no free market price discovery and don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

I have totally given up on Silver.
It's become a rather expensive paper weight.
Probably won't sell the many ounces I currently own but I won't be buying anymore of it unless the price dips below $8 an ounce.

Fed announced yesterday that there will be three rate hikes next year. Bond yields are already headed up.

I'm actually pretty lucky with this stuff........ I dropped about $1500 on silver, and a year later it hit $49 bucks a oz, and I sold it all... I bought a few cases of pmags for "what if" / Obama, and BOOM, sandy hook happened a few months later

until fed gov actually puts some effort into cutting the debt, and not spending like drunken sailors... I'm going to buy metals, silver, gold and lead. $15.00 /oz? looks like its time to resupply again !

Arfcom told me to buy silver as a hedge against inflation.

So I guess this means inflation is negative, and we are in a deflationary period, right arfcom economists?

This is one of the advantages of paper silver.

Physical silver is a completely different ballgame. Prices don't correct as quickly.

Wait for the Euro to collapse.

PM will decline in USD as that wealth moves out of Euro and into USD. At that point bottom will be in and buy hand over fist to profit from the inevitable collapse of the entire western economy.

The dollar is still boss international currency
Silvers is both a PM and an industrial commodity
The mines it comes out of have to be able to get it out cheap and need geopolitical stability...having a pure source also helps as does reliable labor and no EPA.
Watch interest rates.
