SOLD half the remaining SLV shares acquired on the Low of the year thru an Option exercise

Still have a large net position, thru shares and $15 and $15.50 calls

This is money management. I am thinking it may be better to realize big cash than just sell Calls here

SLV is the etf for Silver (which closed at $16.46) / $15.53 = 106% -> about $1.00 difference


Anyone see a cycle here? (haha)

I will show you one of my favorite gaps right now - and then explain it...

First, I need to SET THE TABLE...

As you might expect, there is a high degree of correlation between GLD (gold), & TLT (bonds). And even more with LTPZ (Tip Bonds).  It is clear in this chart

GLD -vs: TLT, LTPZ ... update : $140, -5.00, -3.65%, vs: $140 - 0.0%, $100 - 0.0%


Notice that... on Friday, there was a BIG DROP (-3.65%) in GOLD, but not in TLT or LTPZ. 

this is unusual. and the GAP you see there may be telling us something important.  The drop in GLD may be temporary, &/or bond prices maybe be set to drop

Q: Perhaps bond prices are finalizing their rise which will lead to a top that won't be revisited for some time to come

Sure it could go either way... or maybe the GAP will not fade.

Let me tell you how I will play this "narrowing", ie my expectation that the Ratio of GLD-to-LTPZ will narrow

Q: Will you go long GLD short LTPZ outright or via options?

Valid ideas, (though LTPZ is much less liquid than GLD or TLT.)  But I will do something else...

SILVER!  Or actually, SLV, which is the etf for Silver.  I have added it to the chart / update: SLV & GLD, vs: TLT & LTPZ


In fact, on Friday near the NY close, I bought $15 Calls on SLV: End-Mar. expiry at $0,77, and Mid-April at $0.91.

These are in-the-money Calls with a strike price below the Friday close of $15.53

Previously, back in mid-Dec., : I bought SLV Jan. $15.50 Calls at $0.48
A few weeks later, in three trades, I sold them at an average of $1.59 - for a 231% gain
(This is recorded in Real-time comments on my 2020 Tips thread😞

Gold & Silver still looking good, after last week's selloff

GOLD to SILVER ratio recently hit a Record High of 100x.  I still like silver

Supported by rising Bonds (TLT), and TIP Bonds (LTPZ)

GLD vs.: SLV, / TLT, & LTPZ ... from 10.May.2020 : $154.16, TLT:$154.67 / SLV:$16.09, LTPZ: $80.67


SLV to-GLD ratio got down to just 10.20%. Bounce or rally may be underway


Gold -toSilver ratio: At 95.27x , which is still very high


GLD -toTLT ratio : 99.67% / For many months, has been swinging a little either side of 100% Ratio


SLV -toLTPZ ratio: 20% : down to a Low below 20% - Note the Cycle

Silver BUY zone: $21.75-22.75, and low yesterday was $21.58! 


This call looks impressive so far, he expected "one more drop in Silver" into that Buy zone, and we may have seen that yesterday. 

I haven't heard this megaphone technique he uses at Sniper before:  

Excellent Interview !

SLV : ALL / Last: $17.39



"What's interesting is that the current supply of futures contracts is at a nine-year low. On COMEX as of last Monday, the total open interest in silver was just 125,748 contracts. At 5,000 digital ounces per contract, this represents 628,740,000 of "silver", and this is the lowest total open interest level since November 11, 2013.

While 125,748 contracts and 628,740,000 digital ounces may seem like a lot, by any historical measure it isn’t. For example, as recently as June of last year, total open interest was near 200,000 contracts. Additionally, the all-time high in COMEX silver open interest was reached on February 24, 2020, at a whopping 244,705 contracts for 1,223,525,000 digital ounces.

Stated another way, total open interest in COMEX Digital Silver has fallen by 48.6% since the all-time highs two and a half years ago."     >  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2022-10-11/physical-silver-demand-soars-digital-silver-demand-plunges

Market Sniper, Francis Hall, believes SILVER is in a massive rising wedge.  He sees new highs, a dip, and then a Bezerker breakout with massive upside.
