Silver prices


#1

All- this was in my mailbox today- thought it might be of general
interest, since many of us were worried about recent price jumps-

COMEX and NYMEX precious metals futures ended lower across the
board Wednesday, led by another sharp fall in silver prices. “It
was just more fund liquidation of long positions, with support now
seen around $6.40 an ounce basis March,” said COMEX analyst Scott
Meyers. Silver prices rose to a nine-year high at $7.90 an ounce in
early February after news of Buffett’s purchase. “But if Mr Buffett
is not going to buy any more silver, then there’s probably more
downside here,” one bullion dealer said.
