100 thoughts on “Silver / Gold ETF Scams & Price Manipulation – Mike Maloney – Why Gold & Silver?

  1. Clearly there is manipulation. If ever people rush to take physical possession, the ponzi scheme will come undone.

  2. Physical Gold & Silver is the safest way to go. ETFs have clauses in their prospectus to protect them legally because they are not buying physical metals to back up people's investments.

  3. They have strange clauses because they don't actually have the gold and silver they say they have, its deception. The safest way to invest is to buy physical gold and silver, hold it in your hand, then you know its real

  4. GLD and SLV have so many strange clauses because they know they are scamming people, so they most likely do not have enough physical metals and they make it confusing for people and at the same time they protect themselves. For me, as other people say, the safest way to invest in metals is to buy them directly from a local coin shop, give a fake name and always trading amount of cash between $1500 to $9999 so you don't pay sales tax and you dont have to fill I.R.S. Form 8300

  5. The clauses are there to cover the butts of the people taking the money of uninformed investors so that they don't go to jail for what they are doing. The safest way to invest in gold and silver is to buy the physical metal

  6. Answer: The clauses in SLV and GLD are put there to give the clause 2 meanings, the opposite meaning, or no meaning. As Mike says in the film, This way they dont have to settle the contract in Gold or Silver and can use Cash. This way, if they arent buying the gold and silver they claim to have, there would be a rush out of the fund, and the price would diverge from the physical price and Fall! THE Safest way to Invest In Gold and Silver is to OWN PHYSICAL METAL!

  7. GLD and SLV have so many strange clauses to manipulate the gold and silver price down in order to suck up the Capital from the Average Investors. And at the same time making them not to have Physical Gold & Silver.

    So the Safest way to invest in Gold & Silver is to GET PHYSICAL!!!

  8. They have so many strange clauses in order to keep from looking fraudulent if they can't produce enough physical. The safest way to invest is to possess the actual pm.

  9. GLD and SLV have so many clauses because when you buy into them, they have you upsidedown and by your feet, just waiting and ready to shake the change out of your pockets. The only safe way to own precious metals is to PHYSICALLY hold it in your hands! If you can't hold it, you don't own it!

  10. They have so many strange clauses because they want to cover their butts in case they get caught can't produce. So the best thing for us to do is get the actual gold or silver. thanks

  11. The clauses are to change the meaning from what most people who buy the ETF 'believe' it means, to a totally different meaning. Most importantly, it protects the ETF's from prosecution when all those people lose their investment.

  12. They have strange clauses because they need to protect themselves from investors demanding physical gold. Owning physical precious metals is the best way to protect yourself.

  13. The reason the have so many is to cover their behinds if and when the fraud is exposed and people sell out of them and dump the "prices" drastically. Physical gold and silver are the best way to go.

  14. Those "strange clauses" are there to protect them when they are going to get sued. or get arrested. They are manipulating the real real money out there. Which is meant to be held in your own two hands. Where the no one can abuse it. Buying bullion is like having bullet proof vest against all these poisonous bullets you have to dodge from these scam artists. Including the govenment.

  15. The strange clauses give them the option of giving you cash instead of the actual metal. The safest way to invest in gold & silver is to buy the physical metals.

  16. strange clauses are because they don't really have all the gold/silver that should to back up their ETFs. Safest investment is in physical metal.

    RP 2012

  17. GLD and SLV have so many strange clauses because they purposefully want you to think they have the actual metal on hand, when they most probably do not.

    GLD and SLV, for example, would never allow you as a ETF share holder see or audit the actual gold and silver. Their prospectuses favor them and not you, the shareholder.

    The safest way to invest in gold and silver is physical possession. If you do not hold it, then you do not own it.

  18. gold and silver ETFs have strange clauses to confuse and mislead prospective investors. also, the language used in these prospectuses is worded in a way so that the ETF doesn't have to track the spot price of the precious metal. they are covering their butts legally so they don't have to assume liability. safest way to invest in gold and silver is to buy the physical metals.

  19. I think the strange clauses is just a fancy way that it is just paper investment rather than the real thing. The safest bet to invest is to hold physical.

  20. The clauses are to protect the fund from having to pay in physical silver. I think the safest lowest risk way to own Silver and Gold is in Physical.

  21. The clauses are there to protect the ETFs when their fraud is finally exposed, e.g., it is "discovered" that the ETFs don't have the gold and silver they are supposed to have. The safest way to invest in gold and silver is to take delivery of the physical products themselves!

  22. Answer: The clauses in SLV and GLD are put there to give the clause 2 meanings, the opposite meaning, or no meaning. As Mike says in the film, This way they dont have to settle the contract in Gold or Silver and can use Cash. This way, if they arent buying the gold and silver they claim to have, there would be a rush out of the fund, and the price would diverge from the physical price and Fall! THE Safest way to Invest In Gold and Silver is to OWN PHYSICAL METAL!

  23. the gold and sliver prospectuses have so many strange clauses to fool the common man into handing over there money in exchange for precious metals that they don't have, and to cover their rears for when the fraud is exposed. Thats why people have to read and understand all documents before taking action of any kind to protect themselves from the manipulators and scam artists out there. Another great video, thank you for posting.

  24. The clauses are a way for them to sell more paper promises than physical metal. Also, as soon as you buy, they get to borrow your shares and short against you (driving prices lower). By definition, the ETF cannot pay back physical, ever. When you buy you do not fill out a form with your delivery address on it do you? It's all paper about paper. That's all ETFs are, designed to keep you poor. I think the safest way to own silver and gold is in physical form buried in a jar in your back yard.

  25. The clauses are there because they don't have the physical gold and silver, so this allows them to manipulate the prices, earn money on the metals that they don't have and in the long term, when there is a run on these Funds, they will fail and the people owning the paper will be left with nothing. It's just history repeating itself.

  26. because bob chapman is right, they do not have the metal they say they do, it's just another way for "the powers that be" to control the price of silver and gold

  27. because bob chapman is right, they do not have the metal they say they do, it's just another way for "the powers that be" to control the price of silver and gold and so the safest way is to take delivery of actual physical METAL

  28. I think it's obvious why GLD and SLV have odd clauses in them, to cover their backsides if investors demand physical delivery of their precious metals. Buying physical metals is best way to make sure you have the metals. As Michael says, if you can't hold it, you don't own it.

  29. The reason they have so many clauses is to cover their own butts. This way they can lie and screw people over and when people go to complain or sue they say " well we did tell you it could happen" The best way to invest is in real Gold and Silver to be delivered to you and that you can touch and hold and store.

  30. ETFs are just paper. they can always screw you over in anyway that they can。 Best thing is to OWN THE REAL THING…Bars and Coins…IF u dont Hold it.. u dont OWN it ~

  31. The strange clauses are CYA clauses to protect the ETF managers and lawyers if/when it is discovered they do not have the gold they claim to hold.
    The safest way to invest in gold and silver is to own the actual metal and have it in hand. If you can't touch it, you don't own it.

  32. Read the prospectuses with a fine-toothed comb and understand at any moment the price of the ETF can and will diverge from the spot price of the metal. The language in the prospectus of the ETF protects only the so-called "finance" people who developed and originated the fund; in no way is your money protected. The prospectuses protect the "finance" people from going to jail when they gamble w/ your deposit. A better way is to privately acquire precious metals through dealers you know and trust.

  33. They are manipulating the price for their own gain. Our Government is the only nation telling people NOT to buy Gold to prop up the crashing dollar. What a scam! China is telling their people to BUY! Go figure.
    The safest investment is in private and numismatic coins. The Government will not be able to confiscate it like they did in the past.

  34. The purpose of the clauses is to protect their manipulation, and evidence that they have the manipulations in their minds all the time.
    Thus, the safest way is to own physical gold/silver. If you can't touch it, you don't own it!

  35. Makes sense to me! The GLD and SLV prospectuses have strange clauses to give another meaning to the document than what you think and to protect themselves should something go wrong so they don't go to jail. The best investment is private and tangible. Private investment in precious metals takes control away from banks and gives it to the individual who physically holds the gold or silver.

  36. In my opinion, having them physically is the best way but the investor should also know if the precious metals are real or fake.

  37. The purpose of strange clauses is to protect them from any legal action against their manipulation and them. Use it to save them from serving terms in dashing orange jump suits. Planning ahead for a fraud they are going to commit.

    Best way to protect yourself from this kind of fraud is to buy physical Gold and Silver. As Marc Faber says "Be your own central bank, hold physical Precious Metals".

  38. Because they were written by lawyers to help steal wealth from the people.
    The safest way to invest is to buy physical metal / bullion.

  39. they know the average investor is not going to read the fine print, and so they throw some legal jargon to protect themselves and now they can continue to cheat and steal the wealth from the uneducated. Buy physical, stay away from these thieves.

  40. These are the same terms that big business uses to protect themselves from biting Dogs who will sue over anything. Clearly nothing is more important to us right now that owning and holding the metals in our hands.

    The USA PEOPLE must purchase as much as possible so we are not controlled by the countrys who hold most of it.

  41. The GLD and SLV prospectuses are written in such a manner to make them confusing and to give them legal loopholes to steal wealth from investors. The safest way to invest in gold and silver is to take physical possession of bullion.

  42. When all the lawyers work on one side of the deal, consumers have to watch out. We "negotiate" such deals by refusing them until the seller makes concessions that are acceptable to us.

  43. The gold and silver prospectuses are using confusing and misleading language to protect themselves against fraud. They haven't bought the gold and silver that they say they have and are stealing wealth from unsuspecting investors. Buy and take position of physical gold and silver for safe investment and avoid these thieves.

  44. Mike? I have a $150K Motorhome. I heard you say one time that we will head into Hyper-Inflation at which point we will sell our Silver and buy dividend spin off investments. When that happens does my Motor home go UP in value or should I sale it now and buy more Silver?

  45. GLD and SLV prospectuses are written in such confusing way :-
    1. To protect them and benefit them even if economy is up or down
    2.To make the subject of gold and silver much more confusing to general people and they often end up caught in there trap and lose money
    The safest way to invest in gold and silver is going for phyisical. (if u feel it in your hand,then only you can believe its yours)..

  46. Hi Mike!

    "Words of art" are used in law, legal documents and clauses to obscure the truth, and to protect the interests of those running the funds. The safest way to invest in gold and silver is to find a reputable seller such as yourself, and take delivery or have it stored in a vault that is independently audited, with your name on, deliverable upon demand.

    Thanks for your work!

  47. The ETF gold and silver funds have strange clauses so that they are protected in case there is a run on their stock and these funds don't have the gold or silver to back them.

    The safest way to invest in gold and silver is to physically own the metal.

  48. The GLD & SLV prospectuses use strange clauses to give the statement, opposite or no meaning. This allows the ETF to suck up majority of the investment capital & not buy GLD, plus to protect ETF from the manipulate of GLD & SLV prices. If there have all the GLD there clam there do, GLD should have a very high price now. The best way to buy GLD or SLV is to buy it from private sellers & to store it in a safe place like a private vault. It is also important to investigate completely before buying.

  49. They have that clauses on the etf´s to manipulate the price of gold and silver , the best way to invest in gold and silver is physicall bullion

  50. Their idea is to depress prices, also they are using the money to invest in other things and profit from it instead of buying the bullion, the best way to invest in precious metals, gold and silver is physicall something you can really own

  51. To prevent problems for the banks that own the etf´s, from the future divergences in between etf´s and bullion prices, the best way is to own physicall gold and silver you can own out the banks system

  52. GLD and SLV have strange clauses that give them multiple meanings, opposite meanings, or no meanings at all. It's like saying a wall is painted white, off-white, or cream. All answers can be correct, or incorrect, depending on the circumstances.

    The clauses are only there to protect themselves 'legally' from whichever side of the fence they fall on to. The safest way to invest in gold and silver is to get it PHYSICALLY and hold it in your hands!

  53. Is very interesting the way the etf´s protect themselves for the time the manipulation is going to be discovered, that´s why the clauses are so strange, is much better to own physicall gold and silver

  54. The special clauses are a way to reduce the price of gold. You should physically own the gold, which is considered a private investment.

  55. The ETF's have strange clauses because they want to take the money people invest and NOT buy real metals with them, but in all likelihood take the investment and gamble with it. Should the stock price fall they will be covered with their clauses. The safest way to invest in gold and silver is to buy the real physical thing and keep it in your possession. If you can't touch it, you don't own it.

  56. Strange and confusing clauses are there to hide the truth that etfs are not a safe haven. Best of all way to invest in preicous metals is to take physical possession

  57. They have so many clauses to cover themselves when the scam all falls apart. The safest way is to hold physical yourself.

  58. They have so many clauses with vague or multiple meanings to protect themselves legally from the fact that they may no be holding as much silver as they should be. The safest way to own gold and silver is to physically have posession of it!

  59. The clauses are to cover their butts and protect them from going to jail when the truth is exposed. The best way to invest in gold and silver is to hold physical bullion coins and bars.

  60. I have DBS. I never looked into it. I wonder if i've already been cheated? It's double since I've bought it though….

  61. I agree that the silver and gold ETF's are not physically fully backed. This is partly the fault of the banks suffering a short squeeze on their puts against silver (JPM & HBC). The clauses in the ETFs' fine print are to cover their asses against this and many other possible outcomes. Some argue that physical possession is the only safe course but I sort of think that as long as you have a stop under your position you will be ok.

  62. The clauses are drafted very carefully to protect the interest of the institutions.

    The safest investment is physical precious metals.

  63. The Prospectuses have double meaning clauses in them either to mean the opposite of what you think it to or simply it means nothing. The safest way to invest in precious metals is to take physical possession. These clauses are more less ways to get anyone involved out of jail it covers there own butts. If they were exposed to not buying the siler they are supposed to be there woulod be a rush out of that fund they cover there buts and everyone invested looses. Not one of these guys go to jail.

  64. so many strange clause because the GLD's and SLV's funds tools was used to manipulate the price of gold and silver. they use this as leverage to pile a price and give them grab the majority of investment. The safety way to invested is take a physical

  65. The reason the clauses are strange is so that those in charge can continue manipulating the price of the ETF via futures and options without really having to purchase or own the actual metal itself. It's another of the cabal's means for suppressing the price of gold and silver. The best way to own metals is the physical itself. If you can't touch it, you don't own it!!

  66. The real reason the government is doing this is because they don't want what happen in the 80's to happen again. Except this time they know money will finally lose all of it's value.

  67. Strange clauses in financial documents are not really strange at all. They are there to protect the company and confuse the shareholders. The reason the ETFs say what they do is to make sure they are not legally responsible if their funds are under-allocated.

  68. 0:20 Why doesn't he give an example of the language he's talking about? 1:50 Here he seems to do this, but misrepresents what the prospectus is saying (which is merely that the only thing that ties the NAV of iShares to the price of silver IS the mechanism of exchange–obviously. If it is encumbered in any way the two prices can diverge. Also tautological.) The language is simply making that relationship very clear. Thus his complaint about it betrays either a lack of understanding or fraud.

  69. The strange clauses are to protect the owners of the SLV & GLD funds from any liability. The funds likely do not have enough physical gold & silver to back the amount of shares sold, so if shareholders decided to redeem their shares for physical metals, they couldn't. The fraud would be exposed, causing a massive share selloff, which would cause a share price decline. The best way to own metals is to have physical metals in your own possession. Then there is no counterparty default risk.

  70. Legally playing with words, they most likely don't have the silver or gold to back up the funds. The best way to invest in precious metals is to own them physically so you can touch them.

  71. I believe that GLD and SLV prospectuses have soo many clauses in them so that they cover their hind ends. Because there is no gurantees that what you or I think GLD or SLV has in their inventory is what they physically hold. Therefore, my safest way to invest in gold/silver is physical purchase and storeage.

  72. Another great video! I think the reason for strange clauses is to make them hard to understand. They are seeking legal protection from jail and litigation, while masking the true nature of these funds, ie, that the price of the ETF may become untethered from gold and result in investor losses. If it comes to light that these ETFs are not backed by physical metals, the ensuing exodus will destroy the price of these ETFs. The safest way to invest is to buy and own actual physical gold and silver!

  73. The safest way to invest in gold and silver is to buy the physical gold and physical silver itself. Gld and SLV prospectuses have so many strange clauses because they are most likely not buying the gold and silver they say they have so if anything was to happen or this be exposed they do not go to jail.

  74. GLD and SLV contain CYA clauses to give them more wiggle room to play games. Any way of investing in gold and silver involves risk. I prefer physical metal, which has no counterparty risk, but still has the risk of loss or theft. GoldMoney is insured and convenient, but would be difficult to access should there be a breakdown in communication infrastructure.

  75. GLD & SLV have so many strange clauses so that they can cover their butts and not go to jail when it is discovered that they did not buy the gold or silver that they say they have. The safest way to invest in gold and silver is to own the physical metal and hold it yourself.

  76. The ETF gold and silver funds have strange clauses so that they are protected in case there is a run on their stock and these funds don't have the gold or silver to back them.

    The safest way to invest in gold and silver is to physically own the metal.

  77. There are so many clauses because it is a fraud and people committing fraud want to protect their butts… and the safest way to invest is to buy physical gold and silver (dont tell anybody about it) and lock it away in your safe.

  78. The reason why GLV and SLV prospectuses have so many clauses is because they want to confiscate gold and silver from average Joe for their own benefit.The safest way to invest is to buy physical gold and silver bullion.

  79. The more complicated the clauses the easier it is to run the scheme/scam! Owning physical gold and silver is the safest bet. Remember: if you can't hold it in your hand then you don't own it.

  80. Easy – the reason for all the baroque clauses is to 'cover their butts' when the jig is up. When the scam is revealed, they can fall back on the 'escape' clauses they've inserted. The safest way to invest in gold and silver is to purchase and hold the physical metal. Of course, you have to find someplace 'safe' to store it!

  81. I saw a video a few months ago on youtube called "The case for $936/oz silver" It's pretty simple to do your due diligence when it comes to investing in "Gods money(s)" This section on the DVD and book bought, I didnt pay a whole lot of attention too. Although, what I find pretty cool, and very reinforcing when it comes to investing in precious metals, is when everyone says the same thing about it. The fact that there is about 50 in paper gold to 1 in physical sold should say a lot about ETFs.

  82. the best way to buy metals is in physical form & take it home and hide it! the gld and slv do not have the physical metals to back up their etf's,meaning that they are leveraged to the amount of physical metals that they own.this is the counterparty risk you don't have when you buy physical metals and take posession of them.if you can't touch it you don't own it!!!

  83. The GLD and SLV prospectus have so many strange clauses is so that they can CYA when it is eventually revealed that they have no physical silver and gold to back up their ETFs. The safest way to invest in gold and silver is to take physical possession of your precious metals.

  84. The safest way to invest is to purchase through GoldSilver. (1) The reason for the clauses is to manipulate the price. (2) GLD and SLV, either opposite meaning of what you think it is saying or no meaning of what they are saying.

  85. Hmmm my last comment disappeared. The prospectus route is that it is only on "paper" and if or when you ask to sell and want the physical they have to go out and buy it..they most likely didn't have it physical. Best and safest way is have it physically in hand….you know the bird and bush thingie…or have a company that you rust "store" it for you and they have it separate from anyone else's physical account.

  86. The reason they have so many clauses is so that they don't have to pay you back in actual gold or silver. When the markets collapse they can pay you back in fiat currency.

  87. Yes take delivery.
    Its OK to day trade and hold small option positions.
    Dont follow this guys advice on oil.
    RunToGold does a great series about GLD, IE SCAM

  88. You Fight Effect Not Cause !!
    DEMAND
    1.Monetary Reform
    Only Governmental Bank can/must be the money/currecy supplier Not Fed.Reserv or Central Bank Privatly Owned that loans money to the Government !
    Federal Reseve Can easely put silver OUTLAW or any comodity or change its value in their favor just like they did before in the history
    EDUCATE YOUSELF & FRIENDS
    Watch Doc. Movie – THE MONEY MASTERS – & you will get all answers !

  89. Please J.P. keep manipulation going as I like the discount on physical Gold and Silver that I get on the dips. Gold and silver are in backwardation, A state where the future price for delivery is cheaper than the immediate delivery spot price. Why would investors pay more today for something that they can get cheaper later? There is only one reason and that is because they know that supply will be running out very soon! The comex doesnt have enough physical to meet Dec contracts. Crash time!

  90. @vadimuskoro The US could easily " OUTLAW silver investment to control its price in the US, but this would signal to Asian markets (who now have massive financial power that they never had before) just how desperate the US has become. This would trigger a massive exodus of capital out of the US & the bond market. The people who would get hurt would be those inside the US. So if want to invest keep it offshore in a 100% physical investment class like those offered by the Perth mint or similar.

  91. @polygamous1 And that will be when they find that they recieve far more lead that silver when they come to take possesion!

  92. Why is he selling gold/silver to the general population for worthless pieces of paper when he knows that the value will rise more than ten times?

  93. Are there any ETFs that look good to you that (if you had to) would invest in? … I have invested in PHYS (sprott physical trust). It seems to be one of the more legit ETFs – just curious to what you think
