Craig Hemke - Silver Squeezing the Bigs


In the latest episode of SBTV, Patrick Vierra delves deep into the tumultuous world of precious metals with Craig Hemke, the insightful voice behind the TF Metals Report. Hemke articulates his concerns over recent margin hikes in the metals markets, reflecting on their potential to unsettle the equilibrium and hinting at the drastic possibility of the COMEX shutting down. His perspective is rooted in a decade of witnessing manipulative price capping and market suppression, leading him to a staunch advocacy for physical metal ownership as a means to counter systemic flaws.

Hemke's analysis extends beyond the present turmoil, drawing parallels with past market disruptions and exploring future implications. He offers a compelling narrative on the mechanics of price manipulation and the strategic movements of major market players, like JP Morgan, whose maneuvers have historically influenced market stability. His predictions and historical insights provide a stark reminder of the fragility and volatility inherent in these markets.
