The commodity of silver is being potentially setup as the biggest short squeeze in history. The world currencies are almost all fiat currencies and are being held back from hyperinflation through different market manipulations. Keep in mind that silver may not have a spike in price as we predict but all evidence points to this happening.
One of these manipulations is the short sale contracts on gold and silver commodities. The US banks like JP Morgan have millions of short sale contracts on silver that when eventually covered may show that there is not enough physical commodity to cover those sales. People will be hysterically racing to cash in their silver investment once they get the news that there is no silver to give out.
What investors may do when the purchasing power of the Euro or dollar becomes increasingly worthless is to buy silver and gold commodities to cover the difference. When people who are invested in gold and silver start demanding their investment in the physical commodity all of those short sales by the large banks like JP Morgan could present the short squeeze opportunity.
Many of us who buy gold and silver purchase it in a paper form kind of like an IOU. Those middle income families who are smart enough to buy gold and silver may have it in paper form. What will drive gold and silver prices up is when our US dollar starts to become worthless. The IOU to gold and silver investments will be questioned as to whether they hold any value as well. There are more short sales on silver right now than what exists which has caused a manipulation in its price. So when the banks start to cover their short positions and investors start requesting the hard asset a huge price spike could occur.
In conclusion you can save yourself from the heartache of the big governments taking money from the poor and middle class in society. A government system that allows their currency to become worthless by printing more of it makes the middle class as poor as the poorest among us. What they are doing is virtually stealing hard earned dollars from their citizens. To get around this horrible situation a few precious metals in hand can protect against the worst possible scenario.
