Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Silver market analyst Ted Butler writes that the technical futures trading funds that have been milked regularly by the commercial shorts are withdrawing from the silver market and being replaced by commodity index funds that are not so easily shaken out at a loss. Butler's new commentary is titled "Changing of the Guard?" and you can find it at GoldSeek's companion site, SilverSeek, here:
