I subscribe to Bix Weir and he sent out 2 email blasts on the 1st day of the Silver Summit.
----------------------------- Just listened to Jeffery Christen's presentation at the Silver Summit and came away with 2 DOOZIES. 1) He has upped is previous "faux pas" of admitting 100-1 gold trading leverage on the LBM to 400-1 but he says it doesn't matter! 2) Christian claimed that the "Drive By Shooting" in May was caused by a change of trading positions on the COMEX....WHICH IT WAS! Of course, under US Commodity Law it is ILLEGAL for prices to be SET on the COMEX! The futures and options contracts can only be a "price discovery mechanism" and not a "price setting mechanism"! Thanks again for your valuable insight Jeffery!
I just got back from "The Great Silver Conspiracy Debate" where Bill Murphy absolutely blew the doors off that moron Jeffrey Christian. It was great to watch live! Kitco is supposedly going to post it to their website so you'll get to watch it for yourself. I have just posted part 1 of my speech here: Understanding Silver Price Manipulation - Part 1
https://www.roadtoroota.com/public/724.cfm I'll post Part 2 tomorrow. May the Road you choose be the Right Road. Bix Weir

That is great, I'd love to have seen that myself. If it's posted on the site I'll be sure to watch it! (If it's in the forums, I'll find another way to see it...)
i just watched the debate.
this christian fellow seems as ingrained in the system as one could be. his rebuttals where standard discredit attempts that sounded like a lawyer in a courtroom.
i did find some of what he said to be enlightening into how every crevice of the market is being worked. he even said it himself, hes one of the original OTC ponzi scammers...
I still haven't watched the debate - but I keep seeing references to the debate where commentors feel that Kitco set up the video to favor Jeff Christian - here is one such blog entry: https://sherriequestioningall.blogspot.com/2011/10/kitco-bill-murphy-gata-vs-jeff.html
This wouldn't surprise me at all - I have little or no use for Kitco...
During the debate, they had this pathetic question that came from a Kitco Internet person. They served up a BS question about "Why does the COMEX raise margins when the prices are going up?" I think everyone knows that they raise them after the waterfall has begun to increase the downward movement. I am glad that Bill called out that point, but JC acted as if Bill had said nothing and then mentioned how they were good guys for slowing the sharp rise of metals with margin increases. JC is a bad bad person.
