As someone who likes to be able to determine results and draw conclusions for myself I really would like to know the indicators use to see the evidence of the Cartel Raids so expounded.
So much so that I have pasted comment from another article here for help in identifying the source of technical or even fundamental analysis used to observe and hence call the Smackdowm / Cartel Raid or Smash as it may be. Dac can you help me out here, anyone ? As follows -
Being of means and of making preparations for the collapse of the current fiscal regime and also understanding technical and fundamental assessment of investment I feel deficient to a degree that I fail to understand, off simple investigation of the attached graph, how to draw the conclusion of a smackdown, not only in this instance but in most instances but those where the most obvious and instant drop in price are exhibited. Even where these movements are claimed to be smashes I wonder how that inference is derived and unfortunate as it is for me, showing my ingnorance and with the added possibility of being labelled a “gumint” shill, can someone – Doc – direct me to or instruct me in the verification by a source to volume data or something of the sort for the call of smash or smackdown other than a kind of feeling like it just is, similar to the belief in some benevolent and all powerful omnipotent super being who presides over us, namely God, of whom I believe. This is a real request for some direction in self education, can someone help out here ?
Since 1980 silver has never seen a $2.00 advance on price from opening to close in any one trading day. But, the times silver has dropped several $$ in one day are almost endless. When a true smack down occurs the price almost looks like it is in free fall. A drop of 50 cents in a few hours in no way constitutes a smack down. One of the classic smack downs took place May 1, 2011 when in the Asian market silver dropped $6.00 in 10 minutes. Once you have endured a true smack down you find out if you’re truly a silver believer or not.
Do any of the markets where silver (be it phyzz or paper) is traded provide volume data or any other similar data where an analysis of the market, other than price, is ventured similar to the stock market ?
Clambake…I remember the Doc providing data on numerous occassions. Are you arguing the market is not manipulated? Are you arguing their isn’t 100 paper ounces (or more) traded per 1 ounce of phyzz? I’m pretty sure the Doc can use an adjective he wants to describe the market based on his feelings (this is his site). Sounds like he has a pretty pennny into the pm market and I’m sure a 50 cent or more increase wipes out a lot of his savings.
No, don’t get me wrong here, I fully agree with the sentiment of this and similar sites and applaud the boys for having tbe balls to step up.
What I am asking for which no one has yet provided and you have stated “. . . . numerous times . . . .” can you direct me to or explain to me in simple terms a smackdown, the price doesn’t just magically go down it is driven down by volune either in supply or demand and I want to understand the call.
@SilverOne I’m not making it an emotive issue so like wise there is no need for you to do so. A simple explanation is all that is required here not an arguement. Please ! ! Someone, anyone ?

I bet MaryB already has though LOL!
Is Morse Code still part of the HAM License?
They cannot really shut down the frequencies, but may attempt to jam them.
But more likely they will monitor these channels.
