The key here is to understand that the action between now and first notice day for December delivery has nothing to do with market fundamentals or outright global demand for silver and everything to do with JP Morgan's ability to try and force the silver market lower to protect its short position AND the unwillingness of our Government to enforce the laws in place to prevent this kind of market manipulation. Furthermore, the key to trading and investing in silver when the market goes through phases like this is to either hold what you got and don't watch the intra-day volatility or buy the down-spikes aggressively and take some profits on the rebound, but make sure you take full advantage of this market inefficiency and wealth-enhancing opportunity and increase your overall holdings.
One of these days the market is going to blow up in JP Morgan's face because they won't have enough physical supply of silver to meet delivery demands and we'll be reading about JP Morgan the same way we are reading about MF Global, only it will be many multiples more severe. It will potentially be catastrophic to the U.S. dollar and any remaining faith thereof. You want to make sure you have as much of your paper money moved into gold and silver because when the market does blow up like that, the end-game will be near and gold and silver will undergo a breathtaking move higher. I would suggest that behavior like we are seeing by JP Morgan this week indicates that the "blow up" event is getting closer.
