The Real Reason Silver Has Been Underperforming

  • Published on Apr 29, 2019
  • A strong headline GDP release last Friday may bode well for silver demand, said Will Rhind, CEO of GraniteShares.
    Rhind said that one reason silver has not performed well is due to China’s lower than expected demand, but with GDP numbers showing strength in the U.S. economy, this trend may reverse course.
    “Part of the reason why silver hadn’t really been doing much is that we expected China to ease and that would be positive for the silver market in terms of stimulating demand, but of course that has slightly changed a little bit with China [focusing] more on reforms rather than outright easing,” Rhind told Kitco News.

    Trying to apply logic to a manipulated market seems silly to me. It goes up if they want it to go up. Period. It has nothing to do with the "price of tea in China" or whatever real world force you think might be responsible for moving the price.

    Its all fake, Gold and Silver has to be manipulated to prop up government fiat currencies. Buy as much as you can before this debt bubble pops, just make sure you can hold what you own.

    Here is a shocker. Silver and gold has not been underperforming. This is the true market value. (And yes, the ability for market forces to manipulate dictate market value too.)
    Performance is a matter of perception, not reality. Think about it.
