In a very serious turn, the Justice Department invoked the Racketeering and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO) and referred to the pattern of wrongdoing at JPMorgan as that of a criminal enterprise.

Silver languished the entire quarter, on its way to horrific quarter-century-plus lows relative to gold. Silver didn’t start perking up until mid-July, after gold’s decisive bull-market breakout had lasted long enough to convince traders gold’s upside was real and sustainable. So silver miners’ operating cash flows and earnings were way down last quarter. That will really change in Q3 as long as silver doesn’t plummet into quarter-end. It’s incredible how fast silver miners’ fundamentals improve with higher silver prices. And silver’s upside potential is enormous, as it has a vast way to go to normalize relative to prevailing gold prices. The more that precious-metals sentiment improves, the more capital will flow into the tiny silver sector catapulting miners’ stocks far higher. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Friday, August 30th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="color: black;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: Arial;">The battered silver miners’ stocks surged in recent months, staging a strong rebound rally.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp; </span>That overdue turnaround was fueled by silver mean reverting higher on improving sentiment after gold’s decisive bull-market breakout.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp; </span>But silver miners still had a challenging Q2, as most of silver’s gains came after last quarter ended.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&n</span></span></span></span></p><p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-miners%E2%80%99-q2%E2%80%9919-fundamentals-17743" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 30 Aug 2019 16:10:43 +0000 Adam Hamilton 17743 at http://silverseek.com
