The Silver Rally




For one month silver has been making higher highs and higher lows while gaining three dollars or almost 20%. The moves have done been that volatile as we have not had any four or five percent days along the way. It is very normal after big up moves for silver to have some serious price corrections and thus far it has not been the case. The federal reserve has their minutes meeting today and that can often cause volatility in most markets including silver.










I was reading this article from the AP which states the Federal Reserve not only wants to heal this economy naturally, but will take steps to boost the economy if need be. Boosting the economy is nothing more than printing additional fiat dollars and thus adding to the money supply. The only way to add to the silver supply is to actually mine and refine silver and thus it is not as easy as printing money. The price movements both up and down are done so through the comex market exchanges and do not reflect the real supply and demand
