Don't be short silver stocks, (especially high leverage shares like IPT), or U're asking for big trouble. The physical market is extremely tight, and silver price is multiples below historical averages, held there (for the moment) only by extreme manipulation. The built up short position in Comex silver since the 1990's was too big to unwind, and has only gotten bigger while supply has not met demand for last 10 years. U are in serious trouble when IPT's new mines startup and silver prices soar a lot more than a mere 20%...better be out by then! Some reading:

Study the silver chart of 1979-80 and U will see the kind of religious experience silver shorters will feel very soon, when this current silver price consolidation ends.

Hope that helps U!
