Big Gains for Silver in 2018?

Actually, we see much stronger growth than what is predicted above. What I believe is going to happen is silver is going to be above $19. if not even higher. A 20% move higher would put silver north of $20 and that’s truly what we see in the short term with equally strong moves coming between 2019 and 2023 and beyond. Silver is back and will be in demand going forward. If you didn’t load up during 2017 it may be time to pick some up before it begins moving north.

Even More Support: Silver Moving Higher in 2018

After our conversation with Craig Hemke yesterday we are more optimistic than before. Silver and gold are set up for a stellar year and if we could convince a 100 or more of these new crypto millionaires to attack the COMEX and LBMA we could see some real fireworks. Imagine what would happen if, independently, crypto millionaires began attacking the precious metals markets? Decentralized contracts flooding into the precious markets that actually are there to take possession? Would this have any effect or would these criminal enterprises simply change the rules and move on? We know they would force the participants to accept cash, as this is how the contracts are set up, but this would only expose the problem further.
