On the face of it, it seems odd that while silver is supposedly in short supply that the price is going down. That seems to defy the "supply and demand" rule. Could it be that something else is going on. Maybe someone is selling off "paper silver" but are then accumulating actual silver, or some such process. Maybe the "big boys" are shearing the sheep again for a nice profit in the "down market" and will buy back to once again drive the price back up. It's been done before!
