Silver Refuses To Buckle – The News Doctors

by The Doc, Investment Research Dynamics:

Something interesting and unusual has been developing in the silver market for several months. The Comex operators have been throwing a record amount of Comex paper silver at the market in an attempt to control the price. The last time the silver futures open interest was as high as it is now, silver was about to bust through $50. Eric Dubin of The News Doctors published a news brief today on the topic, reprinted below.
