Silver Conspiracy Fact Versus Conspiracy Theory

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014 Apr 18, 2014 - 09:45 AM GMT

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Commodities

“The few who understand the system will either be so interested from its profits, or so dependent on its favors that there will be no opposition from that class.” -Rothschild Brothers of London, 1863

The mainstream is on an academically-driven mission to politicize conspiracy theories and lump them all into the same category. While gold and silver manipulation is an ancient conspiracy fact, eyes are wide shut to the general awareness in the face of one revelation after another.


The news cycle is filled with a carefully crafted digestion of tightly controlled sound bites that are presented with no lack of drama, glitter, and spotlights. The mainstream media is perfectly positioned to make theater of the issues that remain esoteric and out of reach. The further the issue is from the majority's perception, the more black and white will be the acceptance. Belief is emotional, politically framed.

The poor, shrinking middle class and disenfranchised are the collateral damage. They are voiceless against an elite group that watches television series like "House of Cards" with acceptance, safe from the colder realities portrayed. Their wealth depends on it. The direct recipients of trillions (that trickled up from the depths of the money printing chambers) supply the last remnants of liquidity for a Ponzi.  It is the same scheme that so desperately requires every morsel, essentially every lie, to be perpetual.

Was Michael Lewis' new book, “Flash Boys" embraced in a safe chamber?

The issue of high frequency trading has been written and complained about for nearly a decade. One could argue that another entire conspiracy surrounds its release. And the joke, of course, is that nothing has changed since the release and subsequent debates.

The effect of the observations from the inside out is that more confusion exists. And is it a coincidence that Goldman Sachs is back from vampire squid status made popular by Rolling Stones writer Matt Taibi-riding in to save the day yet again?

Yet, we can never get close enough to the issue. The release of the "Flash Boys" arrived, drunk on the same champaign socialism we have become accustomed to in practically every part of modern life. Most perceive issues like this - especially with regard to finance - as ships on the horizon blanketed in a warm haze of promises that justice will arrive.

The investing professional is numb as well, resigned to accept the market for however it presents itself. Powerless, yet still influential; a legion of traders which denies its sacred markets are tainted with anything but the invisible outside force.

With no real skin in the game, risk blanketed by the socialization of failure, and an endless supply of liquidity from which to skim useless profits, who can blame them?

Gold and Silver Manipulation

The depth of price action and market commentary seem to be bottomless pits. It feels reminiscent of 2008 when prices fell from $20 (a milestone many could never contemplate at the time). This was the time when Chris Powell of GATA first coined the phrase “price action makes market commentary”.

Think about all of the reasons you hear for prices going down, which are actually quite compelling reasons for markets to rise:

1.            Federal Reserve hints of further taper.
2.            Fed indicates ZIRP ending will be more gradual.
3.            Russian troops align along Ukrainian border.
4.            China officially announces yuan bond offering on world market.
5.            China gold demand unprecedented.
6.            U.S. Mint silver sales hit record again.
7.            Russian jets come within 1000 yards of U.S. battleship.
8.            Gold down on surging China demand.
9.            Gold and silver down on fears of maternity ward overflow during full moon.
10.          Gold and silver down on news of HFT firms fleeing markets.
11.          Precious metals prices down on news of JPM exiting future markets.

Indeed, on the day the CME is shut down or the COMEX defaults, prices will probably go down “to save us from ourselves will be the commentary". Because no one wants to live in a world where reality or fundamentals are expressed.

And when silver breaches $100 for the first time, it will be promptly dropped to below $50 two months later over concerns of industrial shortage. Indeed, absurdity has become reality- one which begs for even a tiny slice of precious physical allocation.
