As we've explained before, manipulation of gold and silver prices is happening right here in the United States.
Our Global Resources Specialist Peter Krauth interviewed silver market analyst Ted Butler last year, who explained how big financial institutions were using high-frequency trading to depress silver prices.

Investing in Silver Now is a Steal
Lately there has been quite a divergence in the behavior of those investing in silver compared to those holding gold.
One group is running scared, while the other is calmly stocking up.
It looks as if many of the weak hands holding gold in the form of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are giving up and liquidating their positions. A record $4.1 billion was yanked out of gold ETFs in the month of February, a record high, according to the...
Investing in Silver: Price Dip is a Good Time to Buy
Good news for those investing in silver: The price slump is ending, making now a good time to buy.
Silver prices have slid since the start of 2013, and the white metal's down nearly 9% so far this year. Silver, which had hit a record high of $49.79 an ounce in April 2011, was trading for $29.36 Tuesday afternoon.
GFMS: Silver Prices to Climb 38% in 2013
The world's most respected precious metals consultancy, Thompson Reuters GFMS, came out last month with its 2013 forecast for silver prices.
After being bearish on silver prices over the past few years, GFMS has come around and predicted a good year for silver investors in 2013, with gains as high as 38%.

How to Buy Silver: The Best is Yet to Come in 2013
While gold, with its sky-high prices, gets most of the media attention, investors should be just as interested in how to buy silver.
Silver turned in a solid performance in the second half of 2012, rising from a June 28 low of $26.13 an ounce to its recent reading above $33.00. And, to steal a line from poet Robert Browning (or, if you prefer, Frank Sinatra), "the best is yet to come."
At least that's how Money...
It's Not Just Investor Demand Pushing Silver Prices Higher
You've heard that silver prices are expected to increase amid growing demand for the precious metal, as investors worried about central bank and government spending policies seek alternatives to stocks.
Money Morning Global Resources Specialist Peter Krauth said in his 2013 silver price forecast...
Why to Keep Betting on Higher Silver Prices

Why to Expect Higher Silver Prices Before 2013
As the week comes to an end, Comex December silver prices are trading at $32.45, a slight decline from yesterday. For the week, prices are off about 1%.
Recent economic data and concerning news from abroad have hit precious metals this week, leading to their declines.
Gold has been stealing headlines as fear surrounding the fiscal cliff drives investors to seek safer assets. Should Congress and the president not reach an agreement by...
"It's Like Gold On Steroids"
Gold remains the favorite of precious metal investors, but silver is the metal you want to double down on right now.
After wallowing around in the mid-20s for months, silver prices have shot back over $30 an ounce.
And thanks to some wildly misguided government policies, silver could soon blow through its 2011 high of $50 an ounce, giving investors an easy double.
Even better, thanks to three huge catalysts, silver is primed to make a huge run-up over the next 12-24 months. It will be like...
