VANCOUVER, Canada ( Bullions Bull Canada) -- As massive supply-deficits and vanishing inventories lead to greater and greater stress in our totally corrupted precious metals markets, these dynamics push us toward one of two potential "implosion" events.One of these gruesome endings is obvious: a formal default in the gigantic futures markets for precious metals, which now completely dominate the real, legitimate markets. The other path toward implosion is less direct, less obvious and thus much less discussed. However, for forthcoming reasons it is also (by far) the most likely manner in which the phony/fraudulent "paper" markets for gold and silver will be discredited, and (more or less) exposed for what they really are. This second path is a "decoupling" between the paper prices for gold and silver and the real price for gold and silver in legitimate, "physical" markets. Why is this more likely? A better way to answer that question is to itemize the list of reasons why the Establishment in general (and the Bullion Banks) in particular would want to avoid a formal default in their cherished, paper markets -- at any/all costs. These reasons all ultimately trace back to a single theme: a formal default would expose all of the corruption and crime in these markets, and (equally important) legitimize/validate the growing voice that has been clamoring about the blatant corruption and manipulation in the paper bullion markets. With this clamor having now begun to spread to the mainstream media itself, the threat to the Bullion Banks who manipulate these markets has never been greater. What does a formal default in these markets imply? To begin with, it would expose a massive campaign of lies. How many (mainstream) articles have been written claiming that precious metals markets are amply supplied with physical inventories, if not oversupplied? How many mainstream articles have been written alleging that gold and/or silver are "overvalued"? How many more descend all the way to the hyperbolic absurdity that these (grossly underowned) assets are "in a bubble"? Asserting the precise opposite of reality, countless thousands of times is not "innocent mistake"; it is malicious propaganda. And it is conduct for which the banksters themselves are on the record to confessing.
