|Strong Sell? Yep. Come to the Premier Release of the final installment of the Trilogy - Wynter Benton III. Popcorn and dogs will be on sale.|
In our self-appointed blogosphere role as devil's advocate, I just wanted to highlight a different perspective on Wynter Benton. If the Benton Group do actually pull off their 'price movements demo' convincingly then actually all they prove is that they are manipulators of the silver price - that's right, the antithesis of the stacking philosophy. So while the only way they will gain back some credibility is to do some amazing price calling (in real time), the only end situation is that they may create a following of investors who watch their words carefully whilst fully retaining the ability to move the silver price at their discretion. Ringing some alarm bells? I hope the SEC watches the demonstration too.
The motivations of the Benton Group were never adequately explained, but we believe we captured the essence in our fictional story: The mundane machinations of a mania: the story of Wynter Benton. After all, our blog followed the Benton story from the very start - in fact we've been doing a slow write-up of the history in this permanent Wynter Benton Page, which we've just updated due to the number of hits coming in from people researching the Wynter Benton Story:
We have already been called 'paid shills' because of this page (ironically counter-labeling someone a 'paid shill' is right out of the shill handbook as well), it all makes me mildly amused. We've been following this story the longest and in the most detail than anyone on the internet. We invite Amber (or anyone) to add to the record or refute, debate and discuss the topic.

Corrected the date of their price call - can't believe I wrote the 1st December when it was 31st December 2012, and I waited all this time to see what the outcome was. Silver closed the year around the $30 mark. There is no way that $50/oz by year end really even qualifies as a close or good guess, and having been very very wrong for the final time perhaps we can put this bastard to rest. Should those idiots resurface for a fourth time, please do us the favor of linking back here, so that the world can see that the brand is dead. Perhaps we will see a resurfacing under a different name - but unfortunately for the shysters their memetic pattern is now all too obvious and rest assured we will also track them down to the end. No indeed, Wynter Benton, you're a big fat fraud and you were the entire time. Chow.
