Ol' GG. Never was the same after selling at 22-24 in anticipation of 18. I think that was a turning point for a lot of people trying to apply TA to AG. It's hard to tell what it's going to do; seems best not to take extreme positions here.

Sprott is on fantasy Island. People have been calling for 16:1 for the past 20 years but it will never happen. 58:1 is where it should be and I can make a case that we will once again see 100:1 in the next few years.

Eric is not alone in calling for a return to 16/1. The trend is clearly trending down form the Dec. 2008 high of 86/1. Today's 45/1 is below the 50 and 200 day moving averages.
I would be interested in reading your abbreviated, concise case for a return to 100/1. Keep it simple as I have the attention span of a 5 year old.

It's good to question the motives of major analysts, but in the end, you should dyodd. Mike Maloney for example strikes some as a snake oil salesman, and he is a bit over the top. But we've all got different styles, and I agree with both of their bullish arguments.



Maybe guys like Sprott, Maloney, and Turk will make waves...

Really? So, if you have positioned yourself worth billions of dollars on a commodity, would you discourage potential clients to not invest in your commodity?

True.
He put his money where his mouth is.
But he's also in the silver business, his job is to attract people to purchase his silver.
I'm not saying his outlook is wrong, I'm saying there maybe a conflict of interest.
