Silver Short Squeeze

Should be interesting following this over the short term.  If you haven’t already stacked it, you may not get the chance!

Iv been watching this since last week, i didn't think they would go through with it. At the time it was just one idea to get back at the banks after gamestop. I hope they jack the paper market, so many years of waiting. My only worry is there now taking on central banks with this one.

whose quiver is full of them.
He will not be put to shame
when he confronts the enemies at the gate.

"They" are not going through with it.  They are actively opposing the idea.  At least if you take They to mean the Wallstreetbets folks who started the GameStop thing.  The media is saying that silver is the next thing they are promoting, and many people who don't read the Wallstreetbets Reddit forum and just believe the MSM are the ones buying silver right now.  Did I mention that the hedge fund that lost the most money from shorting GameStop has some large silver holdings, and stands to profit nicely from a pump and dump of the silver market?  But the MSM isn't in bed with the the hedge fund billionaires.  Not at all.

I’m not sure if they will get anything accomplished but you have to admit, it makes good theater!😎

Who “they” is does not matter. And sure hedges will make a killing of shorting paper silver.. who cares, anyone who bought into paper has to play the game it was there choice. The point being the shortage of physical, silver is down to 26 but a no name silver round is 32 bucks, silver eagle is 35. Many of us purchased as 14-16.

I care because the disinformation is so blatant.  And because the Main Stream Media propping up the hedge funds at the expense of the small time investor is something that almost everyone opposes, regardless what side of the aisle they are on.   I care because it is waking a lot of people up who used to swallow all the BS that the MSM spouts, since this can't be easily dismissed as 'those crazy right-wingers'.  Even though they are trying to paint it as 'right wing', anyone who thinks about it for two seconds sees that this whole incident has a lot more in common with Occupy Wall Street.

Well Said YR!  I was hoping for more but it actually reminded me of those firecrackers as a kid!  You know the ones that you lit and the fuse burned all the way down and went out...  Remember how hesitant you were to pick it up..?

Agree to disagree, Hedge funds represent everyday Americans who put there money in to win, Wall street bets put there money in to win. To date i have never met anyone who put money in to lose. The hedge funds are the titans, but backed by more then the media. There backed by millions of people who want a retirement, which has only been around since 1889. Its hard enough to find morality in a fallen world, but in this case everyone is out make there gains, as dave ramsey puts you need around 10% returns for a healthy retirement. On Average then the worlds companys need to grow at that unsustainable pace.

I think that you are confusing Hedge Fund with Mutual Fund.  The differences are startling!  I’m pretty sure that after reviewing the article below that you will have a different opinion.  There is a reason that the top 25 hedge fund managers make in excess of 800 million in salary per year!  Hedge Funds are strictly for a small number of the wealthy and definitely not the everyday American.  When they massively short stock they are effectively destroying a companies livelihood.  Mutual funds are regulated in the shorting of stocks while hedge funds basically have no rules or conscience for practical purposes.

Thank you for the link, and clarity. This doesn't change my stance, if your putting money in the stock market you are expecting it to grow, and for every winner theres a loser. The point made to me was that people didnt know there playing in a rigged system, sort of like a gambler who didnt know the odds were against them at the casino. I kept giving them my money and they said i could win big but i just keep losing.

Also a wealthy individual can also be a company, And the company i work for is in over 30 hedge funds. They hire and fire based on there bottom line just like any other company.

I agree with your earlier statement that we agree to disagree.  I will defend mutual funds, stock traders in general and individual investment entities but in all honesty I cannot in good conscience defend what the vast majority of hedge funds do to individual companies or to the “honest” investors that are investing in those companies.  Hedge funds take a “scorched earth” approach regarding anything that they invest in, it is simply about making money for the small group of Uber wealthy participating in their fund.  A hedge fund will simply go out of their way to destroy ANY company that stands between them and profit.

Mutual funds are a fundamental aspect of our retirement generation as most “normal” retirees do not have the Capital to participate in a hedge fund unless they were already wealthy.  What makes this country special is its citizens have the freedom to have their own opinions (currently at least). We can cordially disagree on the abstract Evil perputated by hedge funds that completely destroy and decimate American companies  every year while wiping out investments of “normal” everyday Americans along the way in the name of greed.  I choose to identify Evil at every level and chose not to bury my head in the sand and pretend like this is not going on!  But then again we are still Americans and are totally free to have our own opinions (at least for a little while longer!)
