Silver is getting killed...

jclovescoinsjclovescoins Posts: 1,849 ✭✭✭✭✭

The past few weeks have been rough for silver...to say the least...
Are we heading under 20 or back to around 30?
I think it looks like under 20 but that would be quite upsetting.

    If it drops close/under 20 I might pull the trigger again.

    It is right about where it should be. Tarnished, naturally.

    A fearful prediction: In the year 2025, somebody posts on this Forum "Silver is getting killed" as the price drops to $22. Then a few people post, "I'll be loading up at $22"

    At some point doesn't Silver need to transform from a buying opportunity to actually going up in price?

    Amazingly it was $50 an oz in 1980, and anybody that bought at that high is down over 50% in 40 years. It was $40 an oz in 2011, and anybody that bought at that high is down 40% in 10 years. Silver makes these very occasional very short lived spikes upwards, then basically drops for years after.

    the sell off happened over a oustanding jobs report that included seasonal jobs, in reality we are still down 2 million jobs compared to this time last month. fake news only drops prices short term

    There are almost 10 MILLION job openings. If someone cant find work now they are most likely unhirable being either lazy, have a poor attitude or inflated sense of self worth.

    There is so many places looking for help in my area, as mentioned above, anybody who cant find a job, dos'nt want one.

    all areas: hospitality, machining, construction, trades, resturant, etc.

    lot of people that come in the shop to sell, tell me they have no intrest in working.

    Price drop fix is in to lower the price of silver to provide cheap market for solar panels. What a world we live in .. Subsidies to the solar buyer from the US Government. We will see a major increase in both silver and gold in January 2022...

    So you are saying subsidies (if there really are any) willl be ended in 6 months? And that will cause the price to go up?

    I read somewhere silver would go nuts in 2022 and then drop like crazy after that, like really drop back down to prices we haven't seen in 15 years. One persons prediction. Between these Reddit users and inflation who knows, it could happen. Who would of though palladium would be where it is today 5 years ago?

    Once a physical ounce can be bought for under $20/ounce including the mark up, I will start acquiring again or better yet 10 ounce bars for under $200. Till then, let others play.

    If it does go that low, buy some, stack some, have some fun , but don’t fall in love with it. When you can sell at $28-$30 take the money and run, because it always seems to go back down.

    I sold everything I had except 1 10 ounce englehard bar ( for posterity) and I often wonder why I didn’t sell it a few months ago.

    In September 2020 silver dropped quickly (on "paper") from about $27 to about $23. That drop only took a couple days. These kinds of declines are not new. This time silver dropped from about $28 to $23 now. That decline took most of the summer. It seems like $23 may be a floor under the price. And $28 may be a current ceiling. We shall see if the floor or the ceiling cracks first.

    Anyway, today I came across a favorable local price on some 100oz silver bars. The timing and the price seemed right. So I bought a few, to make smaller products (of 1.0 to 2.0 troy oz each).

    No, they took ON the comex and the result of record high silver premiums shows they succeeded and so far, continue to do so. While their publicity and attack efforts have subsided the premiums have not. Good sign for the eventual correct price discovery method for physical silver. As long as physical prices are dependent on the futures market for their base price, the comex will indirectly control physical prices.

    The price of silver has no relationship to reality. To pick any entry level for buying, or an exit price for silver - you might as well pick a number out of your hat.

    The relationship to watch is the dollar vs. soybeans or corn. Or oil. They can't control the prices of all critical commodities with paper contracts, and the price of silver will eventually move in the same directions now as food commodities (and oil) until the dollar crashes & evaporates.

    Government policies are turning out to be a witches brew for inflation right now and I expect that bigger spending will add more fuel to the fire. It's getting closer to being a Wild West situation. Everything is becoming negotiable, so buy & sell accordingly. Expect lots of volatility. Quite a challenge (and opportunity) if you are a trader or speculator.

    20 years ago silver was $4. Today is $24. Up 6x. US national debt is up 6x and the stock market is up 6x over the same time.

    At what price do you think silver should be?

    Maybe the Reddit crowd is forcing them to cover their shorts. Keep in mind that this occurred during the GameStop attack. A sudden turn in price will confirm short covering.

    Like I stated above, you might as well pick a number out of your hat.

    In other words, give a holler down to the trading desk at JPM to get your latest "silver price", but only after they've made their trades for the day.

    I’m with you. At this point I’m neither buying nor selling, just watching. IF silver gets down to 20 bucks an ounce I’ll be buying like a madman. For now I’m just a spectator.

    Less than $20 will not be a good nor a buy sign.

    Manage your assets, don't let them manage you. Basing your buying & selling decisions on a paper contract-generated price for gold or silver is allowing the manipulators to manipulate you. Same goes for ETF "investments".

    If I’m remember correctly it’s only 3 times which is generous. Day trades trade until they’re broke.. Stock brokers lie IMO.

    Remember when that plaque wiped out millions of people in 2020 ? You ( we) could buy silver at $13. In Nov'19.

    Oooops, a dollar drop this month and a dollar drop last month...and it still costing $25. What changed in the last year ? Prices and attitudes.
    I tried to tell my kids to put that $1200 stimulus in silver. It's not like they needed money. They could not go anywhere, so they could have saved it. And sold it for a handsome profit today.
