What is a silver short squeeze?

The idea of a silver squeeze, in very basic terms, is this: The silver price - so the theory goes - has been artificially held down by people (hedge funds, institutions, etc.) who "short" silver. This means they are betting that the price of silver will fall.
To short, or short-sell means borrowing a share or commodity, and then selling it. If the price falls, I can buy it back at a lower price, return it to the lender, and pocket the difference. But if the price rises, I am forced to buy it back at a higher price, and I lose money.
If a lot of new investors rush to buy silver, raising the price, the short-sellers will be forced to buy it back at a much greater price. This ever-increasing upward pressure forces prices higher. It is more complex than that, but this is the bones of a silver squeeze.
This is a movement to help level the playing field between everyday people and the billionaires who control the big financial institutions that control the money, and thus control us. It is a movement to wake people up to what is been happening, and to help us, together, start to reclaim the power we have unwittingly allowed others to have over our lives. Big banks have made big fortunes by manipulating the silver market for decades. Although many have tried, and some have come close, no one has been strong enough to completely break their stranglehold. Until now.
The silver market is the Achilles heel of the old system, and its time has come.

Basel III endgame strikes the Federal Reserve

U.S. Federal Reserve officials, led by Fed Vice Chair Michael Barr, are exploring changes to the 'Basel III endgame' overhaul for bank capital regulations.
This includes reconsidering operational risk calculations and potential offsets for mortgage servicing.
It marks a significant shift as the Fed acknowledges concerns from the banking industry about the policy's impact on lending.
Here is Michael Barr's statement:
'We want to make sure that the rule supports a vibrant economy that supports low - and moderate-income communities, that gets the calibration right upon things like mortgages.
So the public comment that we're getting on this is really critical for us getting it right. We take it very, very seriously.
That program was really designed in that emergency situation. It was designed for that emergency to say, we want to make sure that banks and creditors of banks and depositors banks understand that banks have the liquidity they need.'

Russia will abolish the VAT (tax) on bullion

The government will abolish the VAT (tax) on bullion.
This Bill will go to the State Duma on March 4.
Going forward - when purchasing gold bars or other precious metals from a bank, the 20% current tax on top of its value will not apply.
This is a way to ensure people can invest securely in something other than the dollar (usually people hold their cash in dollars as the ruble is volatile.)
PM advises foreign businesses that competitors will take their place.
This is a step toward treating gold and silver as money instead of as commodities.
