    @JasonEBurack Question for you Jason. A follower said he heard you say this, “that silver price growth will be limited by the increased lower grade (and scrap metal) mining as the price goes up.”Do you care to elaborate on what you meant??I am all ears.

  • From fea__anaro:

    If the gold/silver price ratio, which remained in the neighborhood of 15:1 from the time of Caesar Augustus to the 19th century, is now about 70:1, is this a sign that silver is extremely undervalued, or on its way out entirely?

  • From MarcDeMesel:

    Also cancelled shorting silver, problem is that silver production is not correlated to silver price, as it is too cheap to mine exclusively so mostly mined as byproduct, meaning if price explodes, does not mean production explodes.
