THE FORMER INDUSTRIAL METAL: The Silver Price Surges As Copper & Oil Get Crushed

THE FORMER INDUSTRIAL METAL: The Silver Price Surges As Copper & Oil Get Crushed by Steve St Angelo for SRSrocco Report

The notion that silver is just an “Industrial Metal” was utterly destroyed today as both the copper and oil prices were crushed as silver surged higher.  This is precisely what I was looking for as a positive sign showing that silver is now disconnecting itself from the INDUSTRIAL METAL BALL & CHAIN.

While analysts will continue to regurgitate that the future silver price depends on industrial demand, we can now take this analysis and throw it into the dustbin.  The world is heading into a new paradigm of “Building Wealth to Protecting Wealth.”  And let me tell you, you cannot protect wealth in most STOCKS, BONDS, or REAL ESTATE.  Those days are over for good.

Unfortunately, 99% of investors still haven’t figured that one out yet… but they will.

Today, it was quite an impressive day for silver (and gold) as the metals surged higher while copper, the king industrial metal, got destroyed.  Here is a chart of the copper price versus silver.

As we can see, copper is down 5% while silver is up 2%.  Thus, the leading indicator of the global economy, COPPER, just put out a very BAD SIGNAL, indeed.  Now, if silver was just a mere industrial commodity, why didn’t it’s price follow along with copper???

And, if that isn’t bad enough, take a look at the WTI Oil price.  The West Texas Intermediate oil price was down 5% as well.

With the U.S. oil price falling $2 in one day, that just wiped out $21 million in oil revenues to the oil companies.  This is also terrible news for the U.S. Shale Oil Industry is being held together by DUCT TAPE, BAILING WIRE, and ELMERS GLUE.

Today, I also posted the broad selloff in oil on my SRSrocco Report Twitter feed:

I have been forecasting for the past several months that the U.S. and global economy will continue to unravel towards the end of 2020 and into 2021.  With the oil and copper price selling off significantly today, we now have our SIGNAL that ALL IS NOT WELL.

The silver market is rapidly changing, and new investors are just beginning to wake up to why it’s essential to own the shiny metal.  As I have stated several times, we are only in the first stage of the coming Silver Fireworks.

Independent researcher Steve St. Angelo (SRSrocco) started to invest in precious metals in 2002. Later on in 2008, he began researching areas of the gold and silver market that, curiously, the majority of the precious metal analyst community have left unexplored. These areas include how energy and the falling EROI – Energy Returned On Invested – stand to impact the mining industry, precious metals, paper assets, and the overall economy. Steve considers studying the impacts of EROI one of the most important aspects of his energy research. For the past several years, he has written scholarly articles in some of the top precious metals and financial websites.
