Is Silver (Finally) Set To "Cross The Rubicon"?

History is full of intriguing sayings coming down to us from other cultures that inform our thinking and behavior.

"Managing a large state is like cooking a small fish." – Lao Tzu.

"A stitch in time saves nine." – A 1700's sewing reference.

"Healing is a matter of time; sometimes a matter of opportunity." – Hippocrates.

One I especially like tracks back to Julius Caesar after ending his governance of the Roman province of Gaul and being ordered to disband his army. Under no circumstances was he to come closer with it than a small stream outside of Rome.

Yet Caesar decided to cross the Rubicon and march on the capital, knowing there was no turning back and his likely fate if the venture failed. He supposedly told his men "The die has been cast!"

I have followed the ups and downs of a certain white metal since reading Harry Browne's books in the 1970's on life, living... and silver.

Somehow surviving the 1980 Hunt Brothers' debacle after the run to $50 and subsequent collapse below $5 over the next 22 years, I happened into a local coin shop in 2000 and spied a printed copy of Jim Puplava's "The Perfect Storm: Rogue Wave" about a financial tempest that would generate a massively destructively wave coming seemingly out of nowhere, carrying gold and silver to huge gains.

It motivated me to get back in the game.

For almost as long, I've been reading Ted Butler's missives about how "someday" silver would break the chains of suppression, market indifference, and compelling supply/demand metrics and make a massive historic move to the upside never to be undone or repeated.

I've worked for a long time with "The Silver Guru" David Morgan, learning a lot from him about markets in general and silver in particular as I toured mines, wrote reports for The Morgan Report and presented at North American conferences. And we have both been exponents of LODE, a project constructing a digital (silver and gold-backed) money of the future, enabled by the blockchain.
