Only a few times since 1962 would I have the least interest in shorting silver. All of these were very brief lasting only for minutes or hours (days at the most).
Right now is in my opinion the worst time in my life to be short. Silver has always been a powder keg but now a sudden run up looks most likely and a more gradual ascent is certainly possible. It's hard to imagine a drop but silver has always disappointed except a few days in January 1980.
