    Ok I'll buy but only the commemorative coins. I'm a savvy investor.

    It would benefit us. It would discourage naked short selling which caused the collapse of Lehman bros, Bear Stearns.

    Why the fuck would I buy silver to hurt JP Morgan? Why do I care?

    If I'm going to buy silver, its because I want to make money. And if by making money, that means JP Morgan has to cover its shorts, so be it. But I'm not going to do anything because some petty conspiracy theorist wants me to.

    So it's okay to crash JPM but not okay to allow GM to fail??

    I remember when the Hunt brothers from Texas tried to do something similar in the 70's

    Didn't work then.

    Won't work now.

    I would think structural leverage from short coverage would make this a good trade, why do you reason that that's an error? Just fishing for information. I don't think it is smart to bet against JPM's risk management team without really solid information but do you have reason to believe that they may have overbought their call hedges and leaked the trade or something like that?
