Inflation is poised to worsen in the weeks and months ahead for two reasons. First, the Federal Reserve created this growing inflation problem by creating ?out of thin air? too much dollar currency. Second, any rate increase they announce in Wednesday?s scheduled meeting will do little to put inflation-adjusted interest rates back where they belong in positive territory. We need to prepare for any financial and monetary onslaught, and history shows us that one of the best ways to do that is by owning physical gold and physical silver to protect your purchasing power.

Therefore, my assessment is that both silver and gold are poised to make new record highs this year. And for this week, any pullbacks in price as the Federal Reserve announces its interest rate increase should be viewed as an opportunity to buy physical gold and physical silver.

It would take little such little investment to blow out the physical markets. Although, from my thorough investigation into mining fundamentals and above-ground available stockpiles, we can continue to maintain lower prices ( providing yearly global consumption remains steady or only increases slightly [+100Moz from where we are now] ) up until 2030. This is when we're set to reach peak copper, lead, zinc and silver mining output.

Not only are we seeing a massive decline in ore grades for Silver, but we're also due to see a significant decline in base metal output, which will lead to a significant decline in silver
mining output, as the majority of silver mine production comes from byproduct mining of Copper, lead, zinc and gold.

What's fascinating to me is that we've seen the Silver to Gold mining ratio drop from 9:1 in 2018 to 7:1 in 2021-22. That's a big step down from it's 17:1 natural ratio. This underlines the fact that silver is mainly found in the upper portions of the earth's crust and most of the easy to mine silver has since been mined. Many of the largest silver producing mines have since been depleted and 7 of the 12 largest silver producing mines today (many in Mexico) are set to deplete their resources within the next few years. Lack of exploration and investment due to low silver prices means that these mines will not be replaced when they go offline.

So, I think If you have the patience to buy and hold past 2030, you will be rewarded considerably for your efforts. The Bullion banks will continue to play their game in the meantime to ensure silver doesn't appeal to investors. They use what little physical silver they posses to feed the markets in times of deficit. My calculations shows there is a minimum if 900Mozs at their disposal to do so. Between mine supply and scrap metal refining (recycling), we see yearly deficits between 20-150Mozs. Sometimes we even have a surplus of 20Mozs+, but this is becoming far less common.

But nothing about this is certain. We've seen them change the rules of the game in the 2008-2011 bull run, where they put position limits on retail and commercial paper positions and allowed the big Bullion banks to be exempt of such limits, giving them more power to "manage" the price.

Also, because silver is a strategic metal and needed to sustain a technologically advanced military, we could very well see a ban on physical investment under the guise of a "National Security Emergency". This is probably the greatest threat to a long-term silver "investment" position I can see, followed by a massive reduction in the world's population, leading to a massive decline in consumption.
 
1:16 ratio
but people work with concentrate, so 16 times the volume for gold cost 16 times the money and time to work with on silver.
in a high inflationary situation, silver will leave crytos alone.
may be for a last time 19+ silver, the last ship to boat
good luck with the shopping
 
It does look like silver could be about to have its time, but we've all seen this prediction made a few times every year so I hardly pay attention anymore, it will do its thing eventually, all the reasons I started buying 10 years or so ago are still in play, the price movement of silver is suspicious when everything was going up it went sideways/down and when everything crashed it hasn't really.
How is the precious metal that is the material that has the 2nd most patented uses of any commodity next to oil priced at $21usd? When every other precious metal is in the thousands, or close.
That's all I need to know to buy as much silver as I can.
 
when I last bought when spot was 21.50, the price paid was lower than now when spot is lower at 21.11
$31.50 vs 31.55, so a few points in higher premium  ::)

I've noticed a gradual premium increase at the bullion dealers. Most coins are going for $10.50-$11 over spot. I'm sure much of it is passed on from the government mints but these higher premiums are becoming the norm and don't show any signs of easing up.
 
yer premiums are stupid, I rarely buy from dealers now, premiums have been garbage since covid began so clearly the covid tax hike hit the silver market. i was a bit lucky as I had reached my qouta before covid hit, so my buying has slowed down to crawl speed.
Personally prices will come down for a short time when things really start heating up with more talks of recessions and economic problems become worse, typically that happens with assets, as people need money to pay bills so sell assets but usually precious metals rebound quick and go higher when they do.
those dumps are good periods tobe buying for sure, if the premiums dont fucken stay so high like they did during that covid smack down on silver.

I miss the time before the 2020 crash when premiums were low, $2 over spot on 1oz size or so, now 6 at lowest from dealer. any silver brought before then I consider I'm up an extra flew $ per oz.

How good were those times! 2018 was the best time to be acquiring. Silver was so unloved and dropped below $15USD a few times. Premiums were as you mentioned - $2 over spot for 1oz coins. Bullion dealers appreciated your business more than they do now and the culture of the private market allowed you to buy silver at or even below spot.

I think the premiums we have now are here to stay forever. In fact, I think they're going to get a lot worse looking forward.
 
last time, over on SS, someone put up a line of buying below support at $13, got no chance to get any at that time, I set it at $14 and managed to get them near $13 during the drop to $12 when before the term all changed lol.

I like 1 oz UK Britannia .999% Fine Silver Coin 2022 | PRE-ORDER for the better premium S$32.62 (100c) than 2022 Perth Mint Kangaroo Silver Coin - 1oz A$35.60 (100c) at A$35.00

10 oz bar at S$306.78 can be better :)
 
If we want lower premium silver, it makes sense to buy monster boxes collectively. The benefits outweigh the downside IMO.
Sydney stackers work together, Melbourne stackers work together & so forth.
Bullion Now typically offers a 90 cent discount on bulk silver coins.
 
That made more sense before the premium hikes. Before 2020, 90 cents was 35%+ of the total premium over spot. Now it's on average 10% or less.

The benefit isn't juicy enough to offset the potential risk and inconvenience. Although, there is still benefit and it would appeal to some.

When i first started buying silver in my teens, silver was $7 spot, its was so unpopular I used to buy it below spot on auction sites before ebay came to aus
Getting American eagles, 1 ounce minted bars for spot or below, no one bid against me so it was so ripe for the picking. Used to have friends and family laughing at me for buying silver bullion ahaha, i would buy a couple of ounces a week, I couldnt afford much more being an apprentice at the time on $8 an hour lol, But even still over a few years I definitely accumulated allot.
First ounce i actually bought was late one night, as it randomly appeared, back in the day (before Ebay) where you used tobe able to sit there refreshing the front page of SOLD.com.au seeing what random items were about to end. I Bought a minted 1oz bullion bar for 99cents, knowing nothing about silver, I simply thought it would be a cool random item, and a few days later when I forgot I had even bought it, it arrived and the addiction started, you didnt have to worry about fakes in the late 90's-early 2000's as it wasnt worth the chinese bastards time to counterfeit them lol

those were the days. lol

I sold all but a few of my favorite coins in 2011 for $38-$42 an ounce, no one was laughing at my silver purchases then lol I started buying again after the crash when spot price silver was wide spread again as just like the early 2000's silver became a not so popular investment and those who got stung by the crash wanted to offload it as quick as they could.

typically crashes are the best time to buy Precious metals, but the problem with covid was there was no one minting the shit. so the bloody dealers could charge what ever they wanted, and they have kept that habbit up since.
next crash might be different as that supply chain issues is less of a problem. that might see dealers dropping premiums if the demand is low.

I didnt get a single ounce of silver during that covid crash, no dealers had any stock. I missed out on that price crash completely.

I imagine the lowest premium would be slicing up a 1000oz bar, but that wouldn't be much lower than kg buybacks or 100oz bars.
I do still buy l 1oz size from time to time, but not stacking anymore really. Just bars.
Having slices with silveroos.com on them would be pretty sweet.
 
How would you go about a run? Maybe Smithys Bullion could help do some hand pours to start us off  ;)
