Let us have a look at the data for today

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

In silver, the total open interest SURPRISINGLY ROSE BY A GOOD SIZED 2526 contracts from 200,271 RISING TO 202,797 DESPITE YESTERDAY’S FAIR  SIZED 11 CENT FALL IN SILVER PRICING.    WE HAD SURPRISINGLY NO REAL  COMEX LIQUIDATION AND ON TOP OF THIS, WE WERE AGAIN NOTIFIED THAT WE HAD ANOTHER GIGANTIC NUMBER OF COMEX LONGS TRANSFERRING THEIR CONTRACTS TO LONDON THROUGH THE EFP ROUTE :  2503 EFP’S FOR MARCH (AND ZERO FOR DEC AND OTHER MONTHS) AND THUS TOTAL ISSUANCE OF 2503 CONTRACTS.   I GUESS WHAT THE CME IS STATING IS THAT THERE IS NO SILVER (OR GOLD) TO BE DELIVERED UPON AT THE COMEX AS THEY MUST EXPORT THEIR OBLIGATION TO LONDON. YESTERDAY WITNESSED 2940 EFP’S FOR SILVER ISSUED.

ACCUMULATION FOR EFP’S/SILVER/ STARTING FROM FIRST DAY NOTICE/FOR MONTH OF DECEMBER:

29,845 CONTRACTS (FOR 9 TRADING DAYS TOTAL 29,845 CONTRACTS OR 149.22 MILLION OZ: AVERAGE PER DAY: 3,316 CONTRACTS OR 16.580 MILLION OZ/DAY)

RESULT: A GOOD SIZED RISE IN OI COMEX DESPITE THE  11 CENT FALL IN SILVER PRICE.  HOWEVER  WE HAD ALL OF OUR COMEX LONGS WHICH EXITED OUT OF THE SILVER COMEX  TRANSFERRED THEIR OI TO LONDON THROUGH THE EFP ROUTE:  FROM THE CME DATA 2503 EFP’S  WERE ISSUED TODAY  FOR A DELIVERABLE CONTRACT OVER IN LONDON WITH A FIAT BONUS. IN ESSENCE THE  DEMAND FOR SILVER PHYSICAL INTENSIFIES GREATLY. WE REALLY GAINED 5029 OI CONTRACTS i.e. 2503 open interest contracts headed for London (EFP’s) TOGETHER WITH A INCREASE OF 2526 OI COMEX CONTRACTS. AND ALL OF THIS INCREASED DEMAND  HAPPENED WITH THE  FALL IN PRICE OF SILVER BY 11 CENTS AND A LOW CLOSING PRICE OF $15.65 YESTERDAY. YET WE STILL HAVE A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF SILVER STANDING AT THE COMEX.

In ounces AT THE COMEX, the OI is still represented by just OVER 1 BILLION oz i.e. 1.015 BILLION TO BE EXACT or 145% of annual global silver production (ex Russia & ex China).

FOR THE NEW FRONT DECEMBER MONTH/ THEY FILED: 44 NOTICE(S) FOR 220,000 OZ OF SILVER

In gold, the open interest FELL BY FAIR SIZED 4577 CONTRACTS DOWN TO 446,618 WITH THE FAIR SIZED FALL  IN PRICE OF GOLD YESTERDAY ($5.15).  HOWEVER,  THE TOTAL NUMBER OF GOLD EFP’S ISSUED YESTERDAY FOR TODAY  TOTALED ANOTHER  11,317 CONTRACTS OF WHICH THE MONTH OF DECEMBER SAW 0 CONTRACTS AND FEB SAW THE ISSUANCE OF 11,317 CONTRACTS. The new OI for the gold complex rests at 446,618. DEMAND FOR GOLD INTENSIFIES GREATLY AS WE WITNESS THE HUGE NUMBER OF EFP TRANSFERS TOGETHER WITH THE MASSIVE AMOUNT OF GOLD OUNCES STANDING FOR DECEMBER. EVEN THOUGH THE BANKERS ISSUED THESE MONSTROUS EFPS, THE OBLIGATION STILL RESTS WITH THE BANKERS TO SUPPLY METAL BUT IT TRANSFERS THE RISK  TO A LONDON BANKER OBLIGATION AND NOT A NEW YORK COMEX OBLIGATION. LONGS RECEIVE A FIAT BONUS TOGETHER WITH A LONG LONDON FORWARD.  THUS, BY THESE ACTIONS, THE BANKERS AT THE COMEX  HAVE JUST STATED THAT THEY HAVE NO APPRECIABLE METAL!! THIS IS A MASSIVE FRAUD: THEY CANNOT SUPPLY ANY METAL TO OUR COMEX LONGS BUT THEY ARE QUITE WILLING TO SUPPLY MASSIVE NON BACKED GOLD (AND SILVER) PAPER KNOWING THAT THEY HAVE NO METAL TO SATISFY OUR LONGS. LONDON IS NOW SEVERELY BACKWARD IN BOTH GOLD AND SILVER.  IN ESSENCE WE HAVE A HUGE GAIN OF 6840 OI CONTRACTS: 4577 OI CONTRACTS LEFT THE  COMEX  BUT  11,317 OI CONTRACTS NAVIGATED OVER TO LONDON. THE CME HAS BEEN VERY TARDY IN THEIR REPORTING OF EFP ISSUANCE.  THEY ARE IMMEDIATELY REMOVING COMEX OPEN INTEREST NUMBERS BUT DELAYING RELEASE OF EFP’S FOR 24 HOURS OR GREATER AS NO DOUBT THEY ARE NEGOTIATING WITH THE LONGS FOR A FIAT BONUS.

YESTERDAY, WE HAD 7704 EFP’S ISSUED.

ACCUMULATION OF EFP’S/ GOLD(EXCHANGE FOR PHYSICAL) FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER STARTING WITH FIRST DAY NOTICE:  119,242 CONTRACTS OR 11.924 MILLION OZ OR 370.88 TONNES(9 TRADING DAYS AND THUS AVERAGING: 13,249 EFP CONTRACTS PER TRADING DAY OR 1.3249 MILLION OZ/DAY)

Result: A GOOD SIZED DECREASE IN OI WITH THE FALL IN PRICE IN GOLD TRADING  YESTERDAY ($1.45). WE  HAD A LARGE  NUMBER OF COMEX LONG TRANSFERRING TO LONDON THROUGH THE EFP ROUTE: 11,317. THERE OBVIOUSLY DOES NOT SEEM TO BE MUCH PHYSICAL GOLD AT THE COMEX AND YET WE REACHED THE HUGE DELIVERY MONTH OF DECEMBER. I GUESS IT EXPLAINS THE HUGE ISSUANCE OF EFP’S…THERE IS HARDLY ANY GOLD PRESENT AT THE GOLD COMEX FOR DELIVERY PURPOSES.  IF YOU TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE 11,317 EFP CONTRACTS ISSUED, WE HAD A NET GAIN IN OPEN INTEREST OF 6840  contracts:

11,317 CONTRACTS MOVE TO LONDON AND 4577 CONTRACTS LEFT THE  COMEX.

we had:  416  notice(s) filed upon for 41600 oz of gold.

With respect to our two criminal funds, the GLD and the SLV:

GLD:

Today, SURPRISINGLY NO CHANGES in gold inventory at the GLD/

Inventory rests tonight: 842.81 tonnes.

SLV

OH OH!!/ WITH SILVER DOWN AGAIN TODAY BY 11 CENTS/WE HAD ANOTHER HUGE INVENTORY GAIN OF 1,415,000 OZ.  SILVER HAS BEEN DOWN  FOR 10 CONSECUTIVE DAYS AND YET SLV INVENTORY RISES??/

INVENTORY RESTS AT 326.714 MILLION OZ/

oh oh!!!TODAY WE HAD ANOTHER HUGE CHANGE IN SILVER INVENTORY AT THE SLV: A ‘DEPOSIT” OF 944,000 OZ DESPITE THE CONSTANT RAID ON SILVER. SILVER HAS BEEN DOWN 9 STRAIGHT TRADING DAYS.

INVENTORY RESTS AT 325.299 MILLION OZ

end

First, here is an outline of what will be discussed tonight:

1. Today, we had t
he open interest in silver ROSE BY A GOOD SIZED  2526 contracts from 200,271 UP  TO 202,497 (AND now A LITTLE CLOSER TO THE NEW COMEX RECORD SET ON FRIDAY/APRIL 21/2017 AT 234,787) DESPITE THE TINY FALL IN PRICE OF SILVER AND CONTINUAL BOMBARDMENT (A FALL OF 11 CENTS ). HOWEVER,OUR BANKERS  USED THEIR EMERGENCY PROCEDURE TO ISSUE ANOTHER HUGE  2503  PRIVATE EFP’S FOR MARCH (WE DO NOT GET A LOOK AT THESE CONTRACTS AS IT IS PRIVATE BUT THE CFTC DOES AUDIT THEM).  EFP’S GIVE OUR COMEX LONGS A FIAT BONUS PLUS A DELIVERABLE PRODUCT OVER IN LONDON.  WE HAD ZERO COMEX SILVER COMEX LIQUIDATION. ON TOP OF THIS, IF WE TAKE THE OI GAIN AT THE COMEX 2526 CONTRACTS TO THE 2503 OI TRANSFERRED TO LONDON THROUGH EFP’S  WE OBTAIN A NET GAIN OF  5029  OPEN INTEREST CONTRACTS, AND YET WE STILL HAVE A  HUGE AMOUNT OF SILVER OUNCES THAT ARE STANDING FOR METAL IN DECEMBER (SEE BELOW). THE NET GAIN TODAY IN OZ: 25.14 MILLION OZ!!! 

RESULT: A GOOD SIZED INCREASE IN SILVER OI AT THE COMEX DESPITE THE  11 CENT FALL IN PRICE (WITH RESPECT TO FRIDAY’S TRADING).  BUT WE ALSO  HAD ANOTHER 2503 EFP’S ISSUED TRANSFERRING  COMEX LONGS OVER TO LONDON . TOGETHER WITH THE HUGE AMOUNT OF SILVER OUNCES STANDING FOR DECEMBER, DEMAND FOR PHYSICAL SILVER INTENSIFIES DESPITE THE CONSTANT RAIDS.
