Record Inflation Search Volumes as LBMA Discredits Itself

In yet another signpost en route to London and New York losing precious metals price discovery power to Shanghai and Singapore for both physical precious metals and derivatives in the decades coming.

This week, the London Bullion Market Association renounced what it claims was a data entry error. After the group falsely reported a dramatic escalation from February to March 2021, of the supposed silver being held amongst the large ETF custodian bullion banks in London.

They had exaggerated total LBMA silver holding by over 106 million ounces for roughly thirty days of time.

It was only about one year ago we published an eleven-minute expose illustrating the correlation between the LBMA's coming into existence (1987) and widening divergence between east and western aggregated gold price "discovery" data. Suffice to say, historic and forensic daily price data evidence shows the so-called AM & PM gold and silver "fixes" were likely a tongue and cheek inside job amongst cozy unprosecuted insider pals.

Today in May 2021 the US population inherently knows that big price inflation is likely further to come.

Quick point of levity. While the price of gold has been kicked sideways over the last year or so, it is unlikely to last much longer. Meanwhile, lumber continues to “moon” as the kids say, in recent valuation escalation. The price of lumber is up now four-fold since the March 2020 pandemic hit. 

Perhaps a new SD Bullion round is in order, have a look. What do you think?

We can see that in overall internet search volumes for the word "INFLATION".

This google trends chart covers data of internet searches for the word “inflation” since 2004. One can see all the way to the far right of the chart documenting data into now May 2021 where there is now a trending record high search volume spike.

Perfect timing for the now underway Wall Street Silver billboard campaign across the USA and soon internationally.

We're going to keep going with the news about London losing its nonsensical hold over the precious metals market in the 2020s and beyond. 

After all, the east is the largest consumer of gold, likely too silver, platinum, and palladium to come. As their economic clout likely will increase further grabbing price discovery by the horns in decades to come.

The Wall Street Silver crowd continues to drain COMEX registered silver stockpiles month after month.

Meanwhile, the coming BIS Basel 3 rule changes going into effect in the EU this summer and in the UK to start the year 2022 signifies, that there will likely be a lot less unallocated gold shenanigans and unbacked derivative leverage helping retard or slow gold's eventual revaluation much higher.

The second half of this year for precious metals is lining up to be very memorable and potentially historic. 

Share this information with those you want to help protect their wealth from the coming inflation. 

That is all for this week, as always and forever. Take great care of yourselves, and those you love.
