Dear Friend of GATA and Gold (and Silver):

Silver market analyst Ted Butler writes in commentary posted tonight that the collusive commercial shorts in silver on the commodities exchange are using the current smash down in silver to cover a large share of their short positions. Butler also remarks on the worldwide shortage of real silver. His new essay is headlined "Lessons of a Lifetime" and you can find it at GoldSeek's companion site, SilverSeek, here:
