11 Mentality Shifts of Silver Investors

We are going to see a huge shift in silver investor mentality. (By the looks of today’s action it could be today.)  Silver buyers will no longer be “nerdy” guys talking about Austrian Economics or “momentum monkeys” trying to make a quick buck trading metals. It will be wide eyed panic buying as people wake up to the fact they everything they have ever worked for is being destroyed by the massive money creation from the world’s central banks. Once people see that the only answer the bankers have is to print more money and that the only answer the politicians have is to spend more money,  they will see that there is no safe place on earth to store their wealth other than real tangible assets. And of course the best real tangible asset is silver. (Read the Silver Bullet and the Silver Shield.)

I predicted that silver, at one point, would not be available at any dollar price. You can throw away all of your $50,  $100,  $500 price targets,  because society would finally see the enormity of the fraud in the silver market. Once this fraud exposed, no person on earth would dare let go of their silver for fiat paper money. Sure a couple of ounces might be available at the local shop,  but the vast majority of the silver markets will be as barren as the shelves of a post collapse Soviet Union grocery store. This global mentality shift in asset values will lead to a paradigm shift where the world no longer wants debt money. Only real money will do in the new paradigm.

1. Physical investors who have been stacking physical silver will be stunned by the sudden appreciation. It will be akin to someone winning the lottery. They will shocked at the enormity of their new found wealth which occurs at the same time the economy becomes an absolute horror show. A shift in the perception of wealth will confirm that they are holding something truly precious. The years of being told they are crazy for buying silver will finally give way to,  “you were right.” After the shock wears off,  these newly minted kings will seek to make the most off of this once in a life time opportunity. These men were astute enough to buy silver when everyone said they were nuts,  they are certainly now not going to give up what they have for some dirty dollars that they did not want years ago. They will wait for something much,  much better. They will not see immediately many opportunities to invest their new wealth in,  because the final throes of the debt based economy will be horrific. No one will invest when it is not certain what will happen to humanity. They will have no choice but to wait until the act plays out and the music stops.

2. Long term paper investors who have been sitting on the sidelines,  will rush to buy silver this time around. I cannot tell you how many people I know that are literally dragging their feet buying silver. ( You know who you are.) They understand why to buy,  but it is just so hard for them to pull the trigger. Unfortunately, it will not be until much higher prices that they will finally pull the trigger. When they do buy,  they will be joining a fast and furious rush as those fence sitters finally panic for the exits. They will see that Europe’s debt problem,  is the world’s debt problem. We cannot solve debt with more debt. They will see a world awash in more debt/money. They will see that no paper asset is safe with the amount of money printing that will occur this next round of “too big to fails.” This time the “too big to fails” won’t be some puny,  billion dollar company,  it will be trillion dollar nations. I have said that there is quadrillions of dollars in paper assets and only a few million ounces of real physical silver on the market. Right now,  there is probably less than 1% of people invested in silver, what will the price of silver be if it went back to 15% of the population like it did in the 80’s? Don’t forget the last time precious metals went up it was really only the Western nations that participated in that bull run. This time,  it is truly a global reality with China leading the way.

3. Silver retailers will be stunned as people throw their fiat dollar for real tangible metals. Some retailers will celebrate and sell everything they have at higher and higher prices.  They will expect to buy back in at a lower price,  but this time instead of correcting,  it keeps going up. After a short while these former precious metals players will see that the world changed and that they were on the wrong side of the trade. They will then become one of those panic buyers that they once celebrated selling to.

4. The smart silver retailer will see mentality shift of these silver buyers and take silver off of the market. They will see a mentality that is not one of a monetary or freedom “nerds”.  It is not the mentality of a momentum monkey trying to make a quick buck trading metal. It will be one of wide eyed sudden panic that people’s entire life’s savings are at risk and that they need to buy silver (or other real assets.) These new buyers will not be letting go of their silver anytime soon, because they will no longer trust the dollar, the stock market, the banks, or the government. The smart retailer will now see that the real money is not selling the metal, but in holding the metal. The longer they hold it, the more that they may never sell the metal for paper money again. They will join the rest of the strong handed investors that will not sell until there is a new monetary paradigm established or they can sell/leverage their silver directly for other income producing assets.

5. Momentum monkeys,  who play the paper markets on real assets,  will seize upon the new mentality a drive the paper markets higher as they smell blood in the silver short water. Hedge funds will jump all over this market as they seek to squeeze every dollar out of the silver market. Vast paper wealth will be made in a very short time. These momentum monkeys will fail to see that while they were right on the trade but they were in the wrong vehicle. The paper market will cheat them of their ultimate reward of wealth. The mentality shift in asset values that will send real assets soaring at the same time all paper asset markets fail. Even if the momentum monkeys are “right” with their long silver bet…

  • there is nothing stopping the CRIMEX from changing the rules for paper traders capping their gains.
  • there is nothing stopping a failure of their brokerage account or their bank as the paper markets seize.
  • there is nothing stopping  people from not accepting their paper “winnings” for the real physical silver.
  • there is nothing stopping the very dollars they “won” from not having any value at all.

6. JP Morgan the ultimate silver buyer? In the final act I do not expect JP Morgan to fall on the sword to defend a failing system. JP along with many other banks know full well the reality of the physical silver market. They have been perpetuating this fraud on a massive scale for years. They have kept the regulators at bay by having their boys actually become the regulators. They know full well that they are trading 100 paper ounces to 1 physical ounces. They are doing this because it is easy money to make now. During this mentality shift they will change with the wind and be first in line for the real metal that they are in control of. These banksters will most likely shift their losing silver short positions on to some other shell company, pension fund, the Federal Reserve or most likely the tax payers. These former silver shorts could ride the physical silver market all the way up. (I may have to change my Blythe Masters Rides The Silver Rocket pictures to ones of ecstasy…)

7. Institutional silver sellers will take their silver off the market. Most people do not realize that the recent depletion of silver on the CRIMEX from 41 million ounces to 28 million ounces has NOT been from people buying and taking delivery of physical silver. It has been from cancellation of warrants of sellers no longer wishing to sell. This is a huge factor from the supply side of silver that will push the price up further.

8. Miners will no longer seek to rush to push more real metal into the paper markets. If they do sell their metal they will most likely sell it in Asia where there will be a huge demand for the metal. These miners will also see that like OPEC or DeBeers, there is great power in restricting output of their product.  Most silver is merely a byproduct of mining other metals. Smart miners would be wise to sell their zinc or other metals and keep their silver byproduct as profit. This silver would grow in value and not be taxed. Since they never sell it, there is no tax on its increasing value. This increasing value would be monetized through the appreciation of their stock price as their balance sheet becomes more and more attractive. (Somewhere, someone is smiling at this thought…)

9. Corporations who were once comfortable with paper contracts guaranteeing delivery of their metal,  will only want immediate physical delivery. Silver is such a strategic metal and is used in such small quantities. There are billions of dollars in corporate valuations at risk if corporations cannot secure the basic components for their products. Companies like Apple computer will whip out the big check book for only the real thing. Corporations will use their power to create a stock pile which will add further demand. Most likely they will bypass the paper markets all together and deal directly with the corporations who mine the silver. What a power shift that will be when tech giants have to go hat in hand to a small mining company to get their metal. Who knows, maybe these tech giants will use their wealth and just buy the whole mining company…

10. Mining nations will make their move. So many mines are in nations that can and will, at the drop of a hat, nationalize mines. Nations will be facing tremendous social upheaval and will not hesitate to steal wealth from the mines that rest in their lands. China once the largest exporter of silver only 5 years ago is now the largest importer of silver. Bolivia was on the verge of nationalizing their mines last May, they could pull the trigger anytime they want. Even in the United States, do you really think the thieves in Washington will not steal the mines in America? Or the CRIMEX or the SLV? Or even it’s citizens?

For the record, I do not think they will go for the little guys like us. First the majority of silver holders are smart enough to hide their silver beyond the sight the Federales. Second, the majority of silver owners I know are former military, gun owners who don’t trust the government. They would never willingly give up their silver anymore than they would give up their guns, food or children. If they won’t give it up, what are they going to do send in the SWAT team to grab some Mercury dimes? Finally, I believe that the government will have much bigger problems on its hands with riots and starvation to mount any effort for confiscation. All of this assumes that these bozos even understand how important silver is.

11. The Anti-Hegemon makes it’s move. I have written that there is a group of nations that have not benefited from the current world order and are seeking a way to end it. They have been very wise to not agitate the mortally wounded beast of the Anglo American Empire. They have been sitting on the side lines sharpening their knives waiting for the right time to carve up the remains. China is leading these nations with their huge reserves and the opening up of new markets like the Pan Asian Gold Exchange and the Hong Kong Mercantile Exchange. These nations have been using their paper assets to buy real assets all over the world. China is now in every continent buying oil, farms, and mines. They do not waste their wealth on frivolous showcase properties like the Japanese did when they bought golf courses and Manhattan sky scrapers. They are buying assets that will be the basis of power in the new paradigm of real wealth.

This mentality shift in real asset values will ultimately lead to a paradigm shift in power. Those that have the real assets will be the ones making the rules. Those investors who hold the physical metal will finally have the upper hand over the paper manipulators. Those miners will finally become more valuable then these frivolous companies like Facebook. Those nations that have the natural resources will have the upper hand economically over nations that have nothing else to offer but debt and death. This shift is power will be from those that produce nothing to those that produce something. Reality will take hold and the day of something for nothing will be over for good.

When the game changes you will see that the counter party risk becomes the most important aspect of investing. Paper assets rely on another party to fulfill their end of the bargain, real assets do not. When the world is panicking,  it will be every man for himself. There are many more powerful people higher up the food chain that will get theirs before you get yours. A very wise man, Ponce, once said. “if you don’t hold it,  you don’t own it.” When this shift happens,  will you be in the right place,  at the right time?

    Excellent analysis. I feel like the Vermont Senator who said it is too late to change things by the ballot but too early to shoot the bastards! We are somewhere in between not able to fix our currency/debt delimia with any sane or feasible means and too early for a complete collapse and shift in thinking. A lot of people will realize one day that rainbows and butterflys are not the children of small baby gnomes, by then it will be too late for them. Bought what I could this week a mealsly 20 Ounces and a roll of pre64 quarters. I though $14 per ounce was a good deal, I can’t beleive I know think $37 is a great deal!

    Keep vigilant and alert

  • Second Hand Lion

    For those grabbing Silver Shields analysis for the first time,
    In a paradigm shift dollars will be quoted in measures of silver /gold so as you prepare yourselves, stop thinking that an ounce of silver is worth $37USD. Think in terms of silver that $1USD is worth 1/37 of an ounce of silver.

    The economy during a national or global shift will see bread that use to sale for $1.99USD sell for X fractions of an ounce of silver. My family already does this. When we go to dinner, if the tab is $40USD we all say was an ounce of silver. The grocery may take $10,000 USD or a Winged Liberty dime for the loaf of bread. How long can your paper assets feed you during a shift of this magnitude? Can’t happen? Hmmmm…ask someone in the Weimer Republic.

    Biblically, scripture says this will happen ” a pound of wheat for a days wages” Pound of wheat makes about 1 loaf of bread, how many silver dimes will you need to feed your family for a day, a week, a year?

    lots of questions to consider as you awaken from slumbering. Lots of people around to point you in the right direction.

  • Severin Slade

    100 percent agree with this analysis, but I think it’d be wise to caution people that think that silver and gold will skyrocket from here (in the short term). Remember, Bernanke still NEEDS to pass QE3. The only way he is able to pass it is with a strong dollar and weak markets. Gold and silver will remain strong relative to equities and commodities, but there is one final smack down in the cards before QE3. After QE3 is announced game over for the ponzi scheme.

    Keep buying physical, but if you’re buying miners or ETFs, be wary of buying heavy into this rally.

  • doug

    Slowly left the “momentum monkey”style and i am closing in on 90% physical and i can honestly say i sleep well regardless what the price of paper silver trades at.It feels great to be a “freedom nerd”.I have lead some friends and co-workers to purchase silver,its seems easier than leading them to Jesus,goes to show how much their heart is tied to money than eternity.Thanks Silver Shield good work,good piece.

  • Excellent article, what kind of time frame are we looking at for a silver price moonshot in your opinion? Weeks, months, a ball park figure please.

  • Matt

    Doug, maybe it’s easier to lead them to precious metals over Jesus because precious metals are real.

  • Chris McMahon

    Don’t be too concerned building a treasure chest for the apocalypse.

    • Silver Shield

      It will not be equally bad all over the world.
      Get out of the impact area of the collapse.
      Prepare for a very rough transition.
      Bring your “treasure” out to reinvest in the next paradigm.

      Or you can just sit there and make snarky comments…

  • Hear, hear! “By the end of the second week of the crisis, many industrial users cannot get delivery of silver, and the unbridled buying panic erupts—the sun catches on fire! All this having happened within a few weeks time, the investing public, which was stung badly by NASDAQ and Dow Jones price declines, begins a pay any price stampede into physical silver and silver equities, like trying to get all the water in Lake Superior through the nozzle of a squirt gun.” —“Silver’s Mushroom Cloud,” my first public essay, 2002. From “Confused Goldbugs”—“For silver, a mad rush and an incredible craze! Screaming for silver wherever you see the sun’s rays! The confused goldbug’s in a daze!”

  • peter bower

    matt, silver may be cool, and you may make big money, but it will be considered, by you, utter stupidity compared to Jesus and an eternity with Him, in about 1000 yrs.

  • doug

    Well Matt,i guess you need a encounter with Jesus to gain some insight on the real Jesus also.Invite Him in your heart and start the journey.But ya its easier to believe in something real as holding a 100oz bar in your hand, than having faith in a God that will come and make His abode in you.Both buying silver and receiving salvation takes a step of faith,just found it interesting how the hearts tie to money is a strong one.cheers

  • sierahpbt

    Excellent. I agree with every single point you made.

  • Matt

    I guess you will find out if Jesus is real. I pray you find out in this life.

  • Second Hand Lion

    I find it interesting that unbeleivers will ridicule beleivers in Jesus 9 of 10 times but beleivers will extend a hand of friendship 9 of 10 times.

    Matt,
    I have lost nothing in beleiving in Jesus Christ if He is not real, yet you will lose everything if I am right. Think on these things.

  • Rusty

    Articles like these make me feel worried that indeed this whole silver push might be the actual ‘ponzi scheme’.

    There is something about this article that gives me a bad gut feeling.

  • ABGUY4

    I was re-reading Silver Seeker, which is worth another read or two or three,
    and I picked-up some more hi-lights;

    * there is nothing stopping the CRIMEX from changing the rules for paper traders by capping their gains.
    ******this is an obvious ‘here’s spit in yur eye’ move. And we have the ‘legal’ precedent – Vegas does it all the time
    * there is nothing stopping a failure of their brokerage account or their bank as the paper markets seize.
    *****Brokerage accounts WILL FAIL, IMMEDIATELY and TOTALLY, because brokers will get wiped-out when their other investments tank and you understand that their clients’ money is in the brokerage general pool. Brokers don’t have the clients money, anymore than banks have a bunch of little boxes with each clients money in it.
    * there is nothing stopping people from not accepting their paper “winnings”, for the real physical silver.
    *****Uh…..sorry S.S., they won’t be offered anything else, so what the hell else are they gonna do? In this day of internet trading – 99% of people have never seen their broker and don’t know where his office is – or if he has one.
    * there is nothing stopping the very dollars they “won”, from not having any value at all.
    ****** YUP, but I don’t see an over-night crash, so there will be some time to dump cash for assets and PMs.

    These banksters will most likely shift their losing silver short positions on to;
    * some other shell company,
    *pension funds,
    *the Federal Reserve or most likely,
    * the tax payers.
    So…………..
    finally we have someone [besides me], who is wondering what escape route da boyz have set-up for themselves – and one that also sets-up their next profit guaranteed opportunity.

  • I’ve read that during the great depression a quarter would buy a mans labor for a day. It is now the case that that same quarter will buy a mans labor for a day throughout much of the world, (in many places several days).
    Of course, owning silver makes one an economic terrorist so of course I don’t own any!

  • I’ve lost nothing believing in the Easter Bunny if he is not real, yet you will lose everything if I am right. Think about THAT.

    • Izzy Serius

      ROFLMAO, now THIS is funny. Offensive as hell, but funny never-the-less.

      And ya know what? It’s TRUE.

  • Great read and inspiring/aspiring if you are a silver investor. I only wonder when and if all of these predictions come to pass what will be done with ones silver. Do we barter and trade for real assets or will it be required to transfer first into some form of currency. I ask people today if they would take silver in exchange for their house and I get all kinds of negative comments, but I know in time some of there tunes will change. Great article.

  • Steven Rowlandson

    No! A US dollar is not worth 1/37th of an ounce of silver. A US dollar is 371.24 grains of fine silver and is not a federal reserve note. A federal reserve note is not a US dollar and it has no value except the cost of paper, ink and time printing it and then may be. The fictional exchange rate today is something like 38.15 federal reserve dollars per troy ounce. But those FRNs are unbacked by metal so the real exchange rate is infinity FRNs per ounce for silver.
    US dollars are not part of the equation. They may be part of someones coin hoard if they exist at all. I hope that clears up any misunderstandings.

  • d culp

    i need a timeline!!! how long do i have to hold my silver before i can sell and consider i made a good investment?

  • Excellent post, we will feature this article on our blog with a link back to don’t tread on me.

    Thank you for your high quality writing.

    mercury dimes on ebay
    mercury dimes run in the upside of 38frn/dwt for melt and good quality circulated, in lots from 200 to 15 dimes per lot.
    here is one that closed in the 50’s; 380351707430
    here is one that closed in the 27’s; 370524666405
    the difference between ebay and london fix cumulative average is more than 3frn.
    looking at the market, price ought to rise in late august/september as 30-60dma meets 200dma. there is a chance that it could break as in august of 2008, but 10 year trend suggests that more and more dollars will be needed to purchase silver, since at least 2002.
    gold prices have an effect on the price of silver, and as gold breaks, does silver (on average). gold trend is bullish at this time.
    a note on coins
    try to get good quality coins, avoid coins that have no milled edge, and appear to have been rubbed with sand paper, unless you are buying by weight.
    if you do coins, its not a bad idea to have one really good example of a coin that you hoard. try to get at least one uncirculated to compare against ones in the market you shop in. know your coins.
    14 dimes is a little more than 1dwt.
    i do not deal in numies, which are the like the toys of bottle cap and beenie baby collectors, but i would not mind settling for small (tiny) premium on uncirculated or fine circulated coins, but rubbed out junk only by weight.

    maybe

  • Jay

    Since Jesus is a big thread topic here.Anyone know why Jesus was sold for THIRTY pieces of Silver.
    20 for a slave
    30 to do as you please including putting to death.

    • Silver Shield

      Which brings me to how undervalued silver is…
      Would you sell out your friend for 15 ounces of silver valued at $40 an ounce… $600 bucks.

      What about silver valued at $1,000 an ounce?

      What would it take to sell out the messiah?

  • doug

    Jay,i would say it was to fulfill the prophecy of Zechariah 11:12,ya any mention of Jesus does bring out the comments,might just trigger another great awakening eh…

  • doug

    Yes way undervalued,interesting to note Judas returned the silver before he hung himself and the blood money was used to buy a plot of land that is used for a burial ground for foreigners.Yup 15 oz. for a plot of land sounds fair to me,not nearly enough to get me through that narrow gate though.Matt.7:13 Oh what Love,cheers

  • I wonder if silver is just going to be the go-to metal worth the very most, or will platinum and gold still be frontrunners in price?

  • The.Fubar.Journalist

    Doesn’t anyone find it ironic that the Frank/Dodd bill in Congress banned on July 15 the OTC delivery beyond 28 days? Meaning no more short and long selling of precious metals.

    The people in charge of the U.S. debt know exactly what they are planning to do, which is replace the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency and issue a global reserve currency.

    We are screwed. You need to dump every free dollar you have into gold and silver or you are an idiot.

  • Want to know who you can thank, for rising commodities (silver/gold, etc.) prices?
    Want to know who took over the American government, in 1913? Want to know what, exactly, went wrong in America – and who, exactly, is to blame?

    Psychological Warfare and the New World Order: The Secret War Against the American People

  • bobinsherwood

    I firmly believe that we do not need to worry about the Chinese. They will not have the cajones to take on a Nuclear exchange with the US when we default on the debt they hold and nationalize all the US assets that the whole world has bought. Third World dictatorships have been doing it to the rest of the World for decades. Now it will simply be OUR turn. The US border will go into lockdown with no one getting out with any kind of assets. Nothing will get in without price controls and tariffs. We will simply get the kind of reset that WE have given EVERYBODY else over the last century. Now it will simply be OUR turn. It will be rough and it will hurt a lot. We will build new factories, new schools, new high-speed railways, and a whole new country. I forgot that we will have to become a Third World Dictatorship to make it all happen. Oh well.

  • Sleep Well Silver

    Rusty

    There is 5 billion ounces of gold mined and above ground on earth today and the central banks own and control 20% of it or 1 billion ounces.

    There is 1 billion ounces of silver mined and above ground on earth today and the central banks have 0. Out of this 1 billion ounces 500 million ounces is used for industrial use that leaves 500 million ounces for investors . That is a 10 to 1 ratio meaning their is 10 times more gold than silver for investment.

    Gold will be at $1,600.00 an ounce before I finish the next line or to because I peck but any way $1,600.00 times 10 equals $ 16,000.00 an ounce that is if gold stayed at $1.600.00

    Do not want to rain on any body,s purade but Mike Maloney @ goldsilver.com predicted no one in their right mind would sell silver for fiat years ago. But that is fine because both are correct why would someone take $10,000.00 fiat dollars for an ounce of silver when you do not even know the shop keeper would take it for a loaf of bread.

    It would be more prudent to buy say 5 acres of land for your ounce of silver and grow your food.

    Ponzi equals print monopoly fiat out of thin air with numbers on it cost the same to print a one dollar bill as a one hundred dollar bill lend it to the sheep at say 10% interest and keep doing this until they are unable to pay back the loan and then take their tangable hard assets like car,house,land etc.

    This is a great site for education and protection of one,s wealth and if you would like a short read on the baddest eight and most powerful people on earth hiding behind the curtain go to sleepwellsilver.com

    Hope this helps buy physical silver and gold and hold while youstill can.

  • misty

    I can’t buy any until about mid september. Will there be any left at that time?

  • Indentured_Servant

    D. Culp,
    That depends on why you own silver. Are you looking to make money to buy “stuff”? Are you just trying to make fiat money off of your investment? If so, sell just as soon as you mave made enough money.

    Personally I’m trying to protect what little assets I have by converting the constantly devaluing, fiat dollar toilet paper to hard assets like PM’s and real estate. The US dollar or FRN is on the verge of collapse. That has never happened in the US. The dollar is also the world reserve currency. (an extreme privilege we have pissed away) The coming collapse will be worldwide and even well to do countries will be killed by the knock on effect. How much fiat money will be enough?
    YMMV,
    I_S

  • Agent047

    I will not let ANY of my silver go for FRN’s. I hope for the day I can buy land with it. The dollar is done.

  • 1. Become a “prepper” – NOW! If you have no long-term food, water and other necessities of life stored away, you won’t be here after the world has rearranged itself.

    2. “Always Watch The Other Hand” (Harry Houdini 1921). When the media and others concentrate on “X”, go look for a “Y” to learn what else is happening while they have diverted your attention. This time honored mental slight of hand is called “Deception By Diversion”. Be pragmatic, remain vigilant and always ready to change direction as circumstances dictate.

    3. The “truck” that hit you will always come from the direction you least expect and are not paying attention to. Think “outside the box”.

    4. Understand (use Wikipedia) the normal human emotion “Normalcy Bias”. Give up trying to “wake up” others. You are just losing friends and relationships. Quietly prepare to survive a total physical or economic catastrophe. Store survival supplies for yourself and for those close to you. They will thank you (later). Normalcy Bias will explain why so few are “awake” and why you are wasting time trying to “wake up” anyone. Leave them in their “all is normal – all is well” world.

    5. In life, play chess, not checkers. Think many steps ahead of where you are today. Always have a backup plan or plans.

    6. You THINK you know how the world reached the point it is in. That is highly unlikely. You’ve entered the game in the fifth inning not knowing how it started, what has already happened, the score or even who is playing. You need to “reboot” your mind on how the world REALLY works and who REALLY controls the world and all of us. Watch Youtube videos “The Money Masters” and “Season of Treason”. Long videos but your thinking, perhaps of life itself, will change sfter viewing them. You will learn what is REALLY going on (why, what, how and when). Only then will you be mentally prepared to survive and perhaps even thrive in the years to come.

    7. But, if life ever does seem hopeless, read “Desiderata” (Google it) and (if you are Christian) the 23rd Psalm. The words of both will have an immense calming effect on you no matter how bad things appear. Also, mentally think “This Too Shall Pass” over and over during times of stress. Memorize all three and they will always be with you when needed the most.

    The person who can help you the most and cares the most, IS YOU!

  • Whilst I agree that there may be the crisis as outlined in the piece posted. I have a sneaky suspicion that when a messiah is needed, one will emerge… The trouble is, he (or she?) may be just making the right noises for their own ends.

    Hitler emerged in Germany, precisely because he promised a frightened population that all their problems were of Jewish origin, and the uneducated masses, just believed him.

    A new messiah in the States with the military machine that the U.S. has at its disposal and the vast rather less well informed nation that he has control of could be something I’d rather watch from a safe distance… Like Mars, or the Moon…

    China (with its new found resource empire) and the U.S. with much to lose could be in a fight I’d rather not be involved in. With a bit of luck they’ll be chucking missiles at each other across the Pacific, and we here in the UK will be ignored as the non-entity that we have become. (No Aircraft Carriers, Nor Navy to speak of, 3 ageing, prone to break-down sub-marines, An air-force limited by how fast French and German workers can produce armaments as our euro-fighter is produced across these countries, and an army of less than 80,000)

    20-30 million lazy-good-for-nothing overweight workers and another 10m or so foreign workers, with divided loyalties or even hostile to this country – Polish, Czech, Slav, Russian, Latvian, Nigerian, Somali, Iranian, Afghan, Libyan, Greek, Turkish. etc etc

    If we ever do get into WWIII, I hope for my sake, I’m not around to watch it.

    And THAT is more likely the outcome of the un-precedented events of a global financial collapse as the fingers get pointed at “the culprits”.

    Yes their will always be silver being sold by some one but at what price buy as much as you can as fast as you can.

    Indentured-Servant

    The U.S has defaulted twice June 24-1968 on the silver certificate that by the way is the day the Real dollar died and the second time was in 1971 when our gold was defaulted on. Sense then it has been nothing but printing and inflation.Take two mercery dime and buy a gallon of gas and you will get back a fiat dollar and change that is inflation my friend.

  • Point 8….
    Miners will no longer seek to rush to push more real metal into the paper markets… and(Somewhere,someone is smiling at this thought…!)

    Guess what, that is me on the supply side of silver (www.SilverMiningClaims.com), laughed about by Wall Street experts, concerned about silver being priced out of the market economics of supplying, in an Edward Deming Total Quality Manufacturing TQM way, 0.10 grams of silver used to combat climate change of big oil, consumed for each watt of generating capacity.

    As a Celtic-American shipped to America in chains to be sold into 7-years servitude as an indentured servant, my family line has been “supply-side” miners in ever precious metal “rushes” from Georgia to Alaska. We also took time to pay back the Brits for Culloden at Kings Mountain, and Cowpens, and then again at New Orleans. The sad part is that I had a relative as an aid to General Washington ride in to liberate New York City from the ruthless control of such things as the London Metal Exchange!

    So if you are a history buff that understands this as “Don’t Tread On Me,” might I suggest you read a long winded speech from an almost lost to time Democratic Presidential Candidate William Jennings Bryan on Free Silver used to fight the trusts (big corporations) and big banks, during the Panic of 1896… that echos our metals, or currency problems today.

    In other words, since the solid silver certificate dollar, seems to have been replaced by Barcleys Bank of London, in cahoots with JPMorgan and silver futures manipulations in trouble, do yourself a favor and buy the “real stuff,” even though a supply side http://www.Kito.com, is in bankruptcy protection, thanks to the ETF boyze — smarter than your average SEC investigator trying to protect the public from the dangers of buying-in on the margin.

    I cant see central banks allowing the gold silver ratio anywhere close to its natural level for any prolonged period.They will prop up the gold price when we get near the shortages.Until Central Banks see silver as money and are in possetion of large amounts of it they will just use a higher gold price to prop up their balance sheets and keep the public from buying their gold with just a few ounces of silver.too many needs for silver ,allowing a cornering of silver market is a more serious problem then allowing gold to rise as with gold once they sell it odds are they wont want to pay more to get it back.The key is trying to keep actual metal away from the middle class hoarders only every nation will compete for the gold/silver and force prices high enough to keep new investors discouraged with the amount they can afford and may give up.More banks will be compelled to give credit cards with limits based upon daily prices and make money by swipe fees,this can be used to stimulate new fully backed non debt currency if its done corectely.

    are the same people buying greek short term debt at 15-30% have the voting power to keep greece from defaulting therefore making a ton of money with esentially no short term risk.This same idea will be used with other Weak Euro govt debt.An even better way than gold to profit as long as the ones voting own the debt.Why are we selling our oil to the east at huge margin spreads when we will need that building of inventory to shield us from rapid rising prices when the economy picks up.Can you imagine China inflation rate had they not allowed a 5% rise against the dollar over the last 12 months, yes 11%,if the chineese are encouraging gold and silver savings and build a 10k+ ton gold reserves by the end of 2020-2030 what do they plan to do with it if its a “barbaric relic” I will bet you they would be happy to obtain gold as they saw how we fooled the whole world into accepting there US dollars could always be redemed for a fixed price of gold which aided in financing the Greatest Nation ever rising to power by using as much paper to give countries for us to own the real asset or currency which no nation in history was able to do for as long as we did.The 30 year tresuries from 1980-83 are due over the next 12-24 months,500+ billion comes due in August,It can always be rolled over at a price but the interest rates it will take to attract foreign investment would be devestating to the debt and hinder growth worse than it is,since our consumption economy is not getting wage increases even close to attract foreign capital at these exchange rates today,which is why the fed wants a lower exchange rate to attract foreign capital except since all nations are fighting it gold will rise in all currencies and bring silver and oil up for the ride long term.

  • […] We are going to see a huge shift in silver investor mentality. Silver buyers will no longer be “nerdy”guys talking about Austrian Economics or “momentum monkeys”trying to make a quick buck trading metals. It will be wide-eyed panic buying as people wake up to the fact they everything they have ever worked for is being destroyed by the massive money creation from the world’s central banks. Once people see that the only answer the bankers have is to print more money and that the only answer the politicians have is to spend more money, they will see that there is no safe place on earth to store their wealth other than real tangible assets.

  • […] 11 Silver Investor Mentality Shifts | Don't Tread On Me 1. Physical investors who have been stacking physical silver will be stunned by the sudden appreciation 2. Long term paper investors who have been sitting on the sidelines, will rush to buy silver this time around 3. Silver retailers will be stunned as people throw their fiat dollar for real tangible metals. 4. The smart silver retailer will see mentality shift of these silver buyers and take silver off of the market. 5. Momentum monkeys, who play the paper markets on real assets, will seize upon the new mentality a drive the paper markets higher as they smell blood in the silver short water 6. JP Morgan the ultimate silver buyer? 7. Institutional silver sellers will take their silver off the market. 8. Miners will no longer seek to rush to push more real metal into the paper markets. 9. Corporations who were once comfortable with paper contracts guaranteeing delivery of their metal, will only want immediate physical delivery 10. Mining nations will make their move. 11. The Anti-Hegemon makes it’s move. I have written that there is a group of nations that have not benefited from the current world order and are seeking a way to end it. When the game changes you will see that the counter party risk becomes the most important aspect of investing. Paper assets rely on another party to fulfill their end of the bargain,real assets do not. When the world is panicking, it will be every man for himself. There are many more powerful people higher up the food chain that will get theirs before you get yours. A very wise man,Ponce,once said. “if you don’t hold it, you don’t own it.”When this shift happens, will you be in the right place, at the right time? Got physical silver? __________________ […]
