Can you provide any analysis on what this high volume means? It appears there was a similar volume spike back in November, 2010 when silver was about 24, just before it went parabolic.

George Soros vs. Jeremy Siegel

At some point you simply run out of participants. As the price of the item in question rises, there comes a point where volume must fall. Finding that point is difficult at best though.

This is interesting:

Is naked short selling going on in SLV? Or are the high-freqs flipping shares a few times a day in the same accounts?
