If you've got silver already, sit tight and eat the popcorn. If you want more I'd buy it today.
No silver? So solly seary amelicans
Hong Kong Metals Exchange Opens Silver Contract Friday!
This is the news that I have been waiting for and is probably the reason why silver has been so strong the past couple of days. The HKME is starting its silver contract this Friday July 22nd! This officially breaks the Anglo American monopoly on silver. This will be the first time that Asians can buy and take future delivery of silver in Asia. No longer can the CME raise margins close to 100% in 8 days. (Then refuses to lower them despite a 30%+ drop in 5 days.) The extended hours should also stop the 10 am smack down since traders can now access the HKME.
The silver shorts should be fearing the hundreds of millions of Asians that will be entering this small market. China alone has Trillions of dollars and they could drop .01% of that money into silver and explode silver beyond the control of the Anglo American Elite. The HKME contracts are also a lot smaller,only 1,000 ounces versus 5,000 ounce contracts. I am reaching out to see if I can get more information like if JP Morgue or HSBC has any ownership in this exchange. Stay tuned,but this new demand for real physical silver is something to be very happy about.
