Silver Shorts Feel the Squeeze
We kick off we a quick look at the above table of silver producers, as we can see its been a damn good day to be a silver bug with the majority being 7% to 8% up in this trading session. The smaller caps have done very well indeed so its three cheers for their respective teams who have stuck with it through thick and thin.
The elephant room is of course the Silver Wheaton Corporation (SLW) and they managed to also sprint to a gain of 8.21% as we write, which adds about one billion dollars to its market capitalization, in one day!
Our core position, despite looking like it was going to take a big hit yesterday as the metals headed south, has weathered the storm of both the US elections and Ben Bernanke’s QE2 announcement, to bounce back putting a tight squeeze on the shorts. Silver prices are gaining traction and slowly but surely are getting a little more attention, not a lot, but sufficient for now. So, some of the holders of these short positions that are margined up to the gills will be getting calls. What that means is that they have to put up more cash immediately or their positions are covered regardless of their ‘potential’ which means that silver has to be purchased to close out these positions. So, we now have the newly created believers buying silver and the shorters having to buy, like it or not. We can only conclude that silver prices are low at the moment and are set to go a lot higher from here.
So, get your skates on and get involved in this sector of the market as it is just starting to tick. We couldn’t give a fig about which vehicle you favour, whether its the physical metal itself, the miners or the funds, we have made our decisions are we are comfortable with them. You need to do the same, do not stay on the sidelines and be a spectator, this is it, right here, right now.
Now, both gold and silver traded a lot lower just prior to this spike and looked a tad gloomy as investors were nervous about the possible outcome of the elections and QE2. However, our options team remained focused and issued a buy signal stating which options contract to buy, the series, the strike price and how much to pay for them. These contracts, which are barely a day old are now trading 91% higher than when we fired out that buy signal putting a huge smile on our subscribers faces.
