Silver Prices Defy the “Law of Supply and Demand”

by Mike McGill, Silver Seek:

How can we explain what has happened recently with the price of silver? In about three months, silver has declined from its late-November price of about $34 per ounce to its current price of about $28.50 as of today’s close (February 28, 2013). That’s a drop of about $5.50, which equates to a decline of over 16% in about 90 days. An economist with a solid grounding in the supply and demand theory, when viewing this decline, would have to conclude one of two things. Either the supply of silver had recently rapidly expanded or the demand for the precious metal had substantially decreased over the same period. These would appear to be the only logical explanations for this situation.

However, in the alternate universe of manipulated markets, insane derivatives, massive criminal fraud in both the banking and commodities markets, central bank machinations with currency handouts, and complete dereliction of duty on the part of regulatory bodies, it seems that the basic laws of economic price discovery no longer apply.

    There’s never going to be any true price discovery on Gold or Silver, because too many people will never let you know just how much physical metal they have, and they will never show it to you. If they say anything, it will all be paper ounces. This is why the globalists are so successful at keeping the manipulation going. PM’s are not something that a person holds that they want to advertise to the world.
