It has the feel of a big bank attack. Seems silver is always used as leverage for these smack downs. This has been going on for quite some time now and is how we got to a silver to gold ratio of 90. This is an early/aggressive move for sure. It will be interesting to see if there is an answer. I guess the big banks figure the way to stop a short squeeze is to throw more shorts at it. Maybe the thought is that with the resolution of the Mexican tariff thing the dollar will take off and give the bank some momentum to bury gold. I would love to see some miscalculation/black swan event catch the bass turds flat footed and see the rocket lit with the short fuel they have so graciously supplied.
