The most outrageous headlines in the
PM Community used to come from King World News (who are still
'excessive' and 'dramatic') but Silver Doctors seems to
take-the-cake - utilizing existing articles - twisting the intent to
suit their bias with sensational headlines. They include, self-made,
unprofessional Podcasts that sound like a trailer-trash braintrust
jawing around a trough of baked beans garnished with a couple of
dead dogs. The business of Silver Doctors is to sell metals
through their SD Bullion marquee who's banners and
adverts flood every page of the site you surf. So, like most we
research, they are compromised by their business interests. Their
Forum has some of the more ignorant, rude and lower-end-of-the-scale
intelligence posters - who are quick to jump on anyone (calling them
'Trolls') who do not adhere to the dogmatic belief that Gold
and Silver prices will imminently rise. It is filled with the
heavily conspiracy-minded who irrationally blame 'The Illuminati",
'The Cartel' or TPTB (The Powers That Be) when
economic or political events don't transpire to their satisfaction
(meaning causing PM prices to rise). Frankly, there are plenty of
delusional fanatics there - stuck in their own absurd paranoiac
ideology - incapable of accepting obvious truths (or simple math) as
it conflicts with their heartfelt investments and love of, mostly,
Silver. While the below headlines have people like Chris Duane,
Eric Dubin, 'The Doc', Turd Ferguson, Dave
Kranzler, Bill Murphy, Alasdair Macleod, BrotherJohnF
and Marshall Swing (this last guy is a real piece of work!) -
each deserves their own page on this site. We try (and sometimes
fail) not to be critical of the rationale behind their predications
- only focusing on the accuracy. I'm sure there are plenty of
excuses why they were so wrong, but after a long enough
time-frame that becomes irrelevant. The below headlines may not be
the absolute worst, but I think they are a good sampling to know the
value of the site. Let's look at a few....
2014 - Chris Duane: Silver Poised to Place Legendary Gains! -
over $21.00 the month he said it - today (April 2016) just over
$15. Nothing 'legendary' about it but Chris is another coin seller
and perhaps this dramatic prediction - that had no basis in reality
- boosted his sales that month...
August 15, 2013 - Chris Duane: Silver Bull is Back, Silver to
Double by Spring 2014! - Almost $25 when he said it and as
low as $18 in the Spring of 2014 for a 28% loss as opposed to the
100% gain he was anticipating.
April 23, 2013 - Silver Backed Currencies & $300 – $500 SILVER? –
BrotherJohnF & Chris Duane - once again feeding the fantasies
of SilverBugs who only myopically think of mega dollar-denominated
gains of their coin and bar stacks with this absurd prediction.
There is no discussion of what type of commodity inflation the world
would have at $500 Silver - which might represent $1000/brl Oil and
$200 cups of coffee - so gains would be nominal at best.
November 14, 2012 - Chris Duane: Silver Headed to 1-to-1 Ratio
With Gold As Manipulation Collapses - there is no rationale
behind this outrageous prediction except to further delusions and
sell Chris' Silver coins.
August 17, 2013 - Gold & Silver Shorts Are Still in Freak-Out
Mode! Blast through $21 silver, as we forecast last week,
Silver did go above $24 but the following month the price dipped
below $21.50 on two occasions. Shorts right again.
September 3, 2013 - Precious Metals Intraday Commentary: Gold &
Silver Are Looking Fantastic Today! ?? Started the month at
$24 down to $21.60 by the end of the, same, month!
December 21, 2013 - The Doc Goes Out On a Limb - Gold & Silver to
Bottom in Next 10 Days! Finished December at $19.50 finished
2014 at $16, and touched $13.70 in December 2015. No bottom, Doc,
but I wonder how your sales were?
February 9, 2014 - T. Ferguson: Gold to Break 100 Day Moving
Average Next Week, Target $1500 in 2014! Never reached it and
went below $1180 in December of that year. Bad call, Turd.
March 10, 2014 - Bill Murphy is Fired Up: Gold Will Become
Explosive Within A Month, New Highs Coming! Above $1340 when
he was 'fired-up' but it fizzled and April finished below $1290.
April 20, 2014 - Alasdair Macleod: Paper Currencies Face Ultimate
Collapse- Loss of Confidence in the Dollar Could Propel Silver to
$75! - and the Sun could turn into a giant bran muffin
Dave Kranzler: Silver Will Be Best Performing Asset of 2015!
This guy deserves his own page... he's a volatile, acrimonious
and mean-spirited analyst, who's correct-incorrect ratio is well
December 11, 2014 - SILVER: THE MOST MANIPULATED, UNDERVALUED
TANGIBLE ASSET ON EARTH — 10 Bagger Coming? The Doc & Eric Dubin
$17 in the month they said it - so they meant $170?...circling
$15 over 2 years later - so is that wrong by 1133%?
August 30, 2014 - Is Ebola a Manufactured Crisis to Bring in
Martial Law? Did it bring Martial Law? No, of course it
July 20, 2014 - GATA Chairman: JPM Has RUN OUT of Physical
Silver- Most Explosive Gains of Entire Bull Market Ahead! Can
this guy say anything and no one will hold him accountable?
July 13, 2014 - Eric Dubin: Silver to $25 in July! But he
said it in July, didn't he !?! - maybe no one was even listening...
no surprise that it didn't come to pass.
July 6, 2014 - Marshall Swing: $1.5 Quadrillion in Derivatives
Will Collapse in 2015- Entire Financial System to Implode in An
Hour! Another of Mr. Swing's many exasperating predictions.
Since he gives no quantifiable reasons for the date - these are
absolute guesses... and a Ouija board could predict better.
