The US three-day holiday weekend is over. - That must mea it's "time" for the Cartel's daily, regularly scheduled, orchestrated paper "raid" upon the opeing of the COMEX. And, sure enough! - Raids are in progress in both Gold and Silver. March options expiry on the CRIMEX is Monday next 2/25. I'd expect no relief or much of a break in the battle betwee now and then. - The Cartel would love nothing better than to keep Silver sppressed below $30 and Gold below $1600.
