manipulation or not, the metals are priced by the paper market! its just reality and fact. if you bought silver at 49$ last year or so. Today if you cry blood no one would it buy it off you for more than what its priced i,e 22$ as of today.
MAKE SURE YOU GET PHYSICAL SILVER IN YOUR OWN POSSESSION. Don't Buy SLV, or Futures or Pooled Accounts or any other BS paper silver product .Remember anything on paper is worth the paper it is written on. Go Long Stay long the bull market have even started yet
