Silver Price Drops Sharply In Overnight

The silver price is testing new lows in the overnight trading session.  Shortly after 6pm eastern time, silver dropped below the $21.00 level.  It appears silver may continue this drop below $20, with strong support near the $19.00 level. 

If the $19.00 level is breached we may be in for a very significant drop.

The recent price drops in silver have been a correction in a long term bull market, and this drop may finally put in a bottom for the market and set us up for a rapid rally.  This analysis is based on the fact that silver's fundamentals have never been stronger, with the federal reserve continuing with its loose money policies.  In addition to the fed's money printing operation, central banks around the world continue to ease already loose policy by cutting interest rates as they race to devalue their currency the fastest.

Eventually the logical conclusion of these activities will be reached, and the effects of massive inflation will be felt in rising prices across asset classes, including silver.

Optimizing Hashrate While Mining Litecoin With HD7850 GPU

I've been doing some Litecoin mining with my Sapphire HD7850.
Running windows 7 64 bit with a Phenom 4x CPU and 8 gigs of system ram.  Running cgminer with the following settings I have been able to consistently maintain 350 khash/s with good stability.

C:\cgminer\cgminer.exe --scrypt -o -u Name -p Pass  --thread-concurrency 8192 -I 17 -g 1 --gpu-engine 1050  --gpu-memclock 1300

If I am using the computer while I mine I change the intensity to 14 with the following settings, these will maintain 270 Khash/s without any noticeable screen lag.

C:\cgminer\cgminer.exe --scrypt -o -u Name -p Pass  --thread-concurrency 8192 -I 14 -g 1 --gpu-engine 1050  --gpu-memclock 1300

WARNING: The settings above will overclock your GPU core and memory clock.  Familiarize yourself with overclocking before attempting to use these settings.  Overclocking improperly can result in damage to your hardware and may void a product's warranty.
