  1. I tend to what the arbitrage closely and noticed the spike there was a few hours where it was around $1.50. Pretty big arbitrage for such a liquid market. 9% is ridiculous.
  2. Value of various Silver bars

    Hey This question has been on my mind for a while. I want to buy bars that in the future could be used as a deposit on a loan from thee bank. So I have been looking for a 9999 bar with serial numbers and security. I’m not sure if it is worth buying over my two other choices of silver; government issued bullion or high premium semi numismatics. What are your thoughts?
  3. Hey any of our silver stackers watching the arbitrage between east and west?!?!. http:// http://didthesystemcollapse.com
  4. Silver mistakes - yours or others

    Telling others that silver is a good investment and that I stack silver. Best keep it quiet. It isn’t easy and most of us if not ALL of us go through the stage that we just want to share the light to everyone else. Silver is a great investment only because everyone else doesn’t think it is.
  5. Niue silver 1oz Roaring Lion

    I was going to bulk up on them as I suspected that there may have been an error in the design. There is Hebrew letters on the coin את and an inscription on the coin “And the Truth Shall Set You Free”. The Alef Tav doesn’t make sense to a Hebrew speaker, in Hebrew this is the female form of “you”. Though if you added a mem to make the word to make אמת, then it would make sense (the word Emet means truth in Hebrew). When I searched for symbolism of alef tav there came up with a reference to as the coin suggested. The reference was from a Christian website which within the contents makes sense. So I may still pick up a few tubes when spot drops below $16.50 or lower but not going to rush out and buy.

    New Zealand mint.
  7. Silver testing magnet

    The best size IMO is 10mm x 1mm Here is a amazon listing. I have ordered off eBay as you can get a cheaper price and get the N52, version which is stronger. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07176K33G/ref=mp_s_a_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1514733839&sr=8-8&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=10mm+magnets&dpPl=1&dpID=51CsYLVWq5L&ref=plSrch
  8. Audit time everyone

    Since I’m new and have been collecting coins for now 1 year, I thought I will share all the different type of coins I picked up in my first year.
  9. Silver ETFs

    I would like silver to get a bit cheaper but it looks like it has been hammered into the ground, rock bottom prices. Though be careful with spread trading, silver can go lower and probably has a higher chance of going lower before it goes up. For the last 4 years the price of silver has dipped in December at the end of the year.
  10. Silver ETFs

    Are you looking at day trading or buy and holding for a longer period? Are you interested in only silver ETFs or would you consider Gold ETFs? Are you set on ETFs or would you consider an ETP? Also no matter what opinions you get from others, and myself, are opinions and not advice. These forms of investment have their risks and you do need to do your due diligence and research before you decide what is best suited for yourself. From my experience, day trading the 3x leveraged gold ETFs had the best results, though after trump won the elections I have decided to stay out as the market. In my opinion the market has not been behaving in a normal way, and the volatility is more a symptom of market makers moving the price in a direction opposite investors desire. You also need to consider that most, if not all, ETFs have clauses that move the risk away from the issuer to the investors. If there was a sudden market shift in the PM many of them will payout on yesterday’s price and in some cases won’t payout if the ETF is placed in financial trouble. I do agree with you on staying away from the miners at this stage as many are in the red and not worth the risk. I would stay away from spread betting. Best advice/opinion I could give is download a stock simulator and play as if you are invested fully and see if you have the ability to make money.
  11. no silver deficit in the last 10 years?

    I actually think you do have a valid point. The numbers don’t take that into account. Though in fairness to the silver institute’s numbers it would be nearly impossible to measure how much retail investment silver went back into the market. The scape metal returning to the supply has been on a decline yet the physical silver needed to produce investment silver (coins and bars) has been growing. Your point does add towards a already solid case for a long term bull market for silver. Though when the bull market for silver takes off is a question that can only be speculated about. Though current market perception for silver is probably at an all time low as the case for bitcoin and other cryptos are much more attractive than silver.
  12. no silver deficit in the last 10 years?

    There are some good questions that I don’t know. As for silver coins coming back into the market, I’m sure that will happen but generally coins have a premium that discourages that silver from being reintroduced into the supply and demand cycle. I guess it all has to do with price. I think it is clear that supply and demand is not a price driver for silver. It is also noteworthy that when prices go up so does investment demand. The below chart is from the silver institute.
  13. no silver deficit in the last 10 years?

    Above ground stockpile is growing, and the way they defined stockpiles is by including investment silver. Simply the bulk of the silver stockpiles are held by silver stackers. David Morgan’s estimates 1.1 billion oz are held by investors. Silver is plentiful can be a misleading statement, while that is a true statement, it should not be considered that silver mining is is growing. Currently many mining companies are in the red and the current silver price has made many reserves not financially attractive.

  15. Minting silver coins

    Exactly that, a simple design with a modern touch I believe there is a market for a coin that is based on ancient weights.
