I would like to start a new forum. I always ask myself what would cause my investments in PM's and miners to fall long term? As we are like minded, I would suggest we play devil's advocate and try to postulate what could make the metals and miners turn down.
The only theory that will not be allowed is to use the EE, TPTB and their manipulations as an excuse. Let's assume their end game is to let the metals run ahead of a currency overhaul.
Here's a first example. The Federal deficit does not get increased, the budget gets cut 10% and taxes are not increased (I know this is totally ridiculous). The result is the dollar goes up, unemployment goes up, GDP slows and tax revenue goes down. What is the bottom line result for the metals prices?
