On a Personal Note…
Just FYI – In case you were not aware – Aside from great advice and good reading… The Silver News Surfer does sell silver and gold also.
I trust you all had a great Memorial Day Celebration and took time to reflect, I sure did. Today’s commentary will be brief, but the research will be very impactful.
I did some digging on the current silver and gold market and the correlation of the gold/silver ratio, which I believe is set up for a great buying opportunity. I have also presented a few reports on manipulation and corruption and the importance of taking out your insurance policy now – not later.
Generally speaking, people usually will take out insurance before the accident, not after the accident and if any of the research presented today is only half true, then this will be more than just an accident, it will be a massive hit and run wreck where all involved could be totaled.

Controlling the Beginning Stages of Hyperinflation by Manipulating the Precious Metals – The tactic by the Fed and Central Banks is to inflate the stock markets while manipulating the price of gold and silver lower. This achieves two goals, 1) it reassures the public’s faith by pumping up stock prices while the economic indicators continue to deteriorate and 2) it elevates the dollar while it destroys market sentiment in the precious metals. When the price of gold and silver were taken down, physical buying in the Asian countries increased 4-5 times. How can buying increase in a bear market?
Many frustrated gold and silver investors today are searching for any articles or information that validates holding onto their precious metal investments. This is the simple rule of thumb — if you feel euphoric, it’s time to sell, and if you feel sick to your stomach it’s time to buy.
World Bank Insider Blows Whistle on Corruption, Federal Reserve – A former insider at the World Bank, ex-Senior Counsel Karen Hudes, says the global financial system is dominated by a small group of corrupt, power-hungry figures centered around the privately owned U.S. Federal Reserve. The network has seized control of the media to cover up its crimes, too, she explained. “We’re going to have a cleaned-up financial system, that’s where it is going, but in the meantime, people who didn’t know how the system was gamed are going to find out,” she said.
“We’re going to have a different kind of international financial system…. It’ll be a new kind of world where people know what’s going on — no more backroom deals. While Hudes sounded upbeat, she recognizes that the world is facing serious danger right now — there are even plans in place to impose martial law in the United States, she said. The next steps will be critical for humanity. As such, Hudes argues, it is crucial that the people of the world find out about the lawlessness, corruption, and thievery that are going on at the highest levels — and put a stop to it once and for all. The consequences of inaction would be disastrous.
Here’s How to Crash-Proof Your Portfolio – Pundits told you to stay the course in late 2008 after many investors had lost half their savings, sometimes more. Indeed, with markets now reaching new highs, those pundits will tell you: “I told you so” but they are wrong. Someone who loses half his or her net worth can almost certainly not afford to take on the same amount of risk as before the loss, strongly suggesting that a lower risk profile is in order. The way to fix this, however, is to take profits before the crash.
As such timing may not be possible, we believe prudent portfolio management requires taking chips off the table on the way up. So is gold the safe haven we have been waiting for? In 2008, gold performed rather well. In recent months, however, pundits have come out suggesting the shine has come off the yellow metal. I personally like gold because there’s too much debt in the world…but risk free, when measured in U.S. dollars, it is not…
[While] the volatility of the metal has been significant of late, gold is an example [of] how something not moving in tandem with the rest of the portfolio may be something to be embraced rather than shied away from…
Gold Silver Ratio Redux – The ratio of silver to gold in above ground investment form is one ounce of silver to five of gold, as a conservative estimate. Silver is actually considerably scarcer than gold in its investment grade form, and this could create a much bigger problem for the market in an environment where investment demand for silver is rising notably.
Both silver and gold can function as an unencumbered ultimate or final payment. Both monetary metals have acknowledged intrinsic value and are widely recognized as a form of currency.
Silver cheapest in comparison to gold for two-and-a-half years – ‘Should I be buying silver now? No I will wait until the stock market tanks and silver becomes even cheaper.’ This is a fairly typical comment from an ArabianMoney reader these days. The problem with following the lazy consensus, as any good contrarian investor knows, is that it is frequently wrong.
Why’s that? Well for one thing it means too many people sit on one side of the trade and not enough on the other, so the tendency is for a small movement to produce disproportionate price swings. Spot the legendary volatility of silver as an asset class.
3 Reasons Silver May Be Ready To Run – Silver is easily the more volatile of the two metals. As silver has many applications in industry, as well as being a hedge for investors, it tends to make sharp moves in both directions. Sharp price moves mean extra risk, but also extra reward if you can time the upward movements correctly. Aside from investors buying silver for the same reasons they buy gold — primarily an inflation/end of the world type hedge.
Silver remains in demand no matter what the current market sentiment is on holding precious metals as insurance. Gold is the most well known commodity, and as such, is most susceptible to inflation and overbuying in times of panic. Because of this, the gold/silver correlation spread is much larger than it would (or should) normally be. From a buyers stand point, this just means that silver is a better value buy than gold right now.
