Let us have a look at the data for today

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

In silver, the total open interest FELL BY A CONSIDERABLE  1349 contracts from 201,944 DOWN TO 200,595 WITH  YESTERDAY’S  TRADING IN WHICH SILVER FELL 11 CENTS. IT LOOKS LIKE WE GOT A FEW MORE COMEX LONGS TRANSFERRING THEIR CONTRACTS TO LONDON THROUGH THE EFP ROUTE. 

RESULT: A GOOD SIZED DROP IN OI COMEX  WITH THE   11 CENT PRICE FALL. COMEX LONGS EXITED OUT OF THE COMEX AND NO DOUBT WERE ISSUED EFP’S  FOR A DELIVERABLE CONTRACT OVER IN LONDON WITH A FIAT BONUS. 

 In ounces, the OI is still represented by just OVER 1 BILLION oz i.e.  1.002 BILLION TO BE EXACT or 144% of annual global silver production (ex Russia & ex China).

FOR THE NEW FRONT OCT MONTH/ THEY FILED: 2 NOTICE(S) FOR 10,000  OZ OF SILVER

In gold, the open interest FELL  BY 1348 CONTRACTS DESPITE THE GOOD SIZED RISE IN PRICE OF GOLD ($3.25) WITH YESTERDAY’S TRADING . ORIGINALLY I THOUGHT THAT WE HAD SOME MINOR BANKER SHORT COVERING IN GOLD. HOWEVER JUDGING BY THE RAID TODAY, THAT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE.  THUS THE DROP IN OI WAS DUE TO EFP’S ISSUED BY THE CROOKED BANKERS.The new OI for the gold complex rests at 535,042. 

WE MAY HAVE HAD SOME SMALL EFP’S  ISSUED FOR THE DECEMBER CONTRACT MONTH (COMEX LONGS TRANSFERRING OVER TO LONDON THROUGH THE EFP ROUTE)

Result: A TINY SIZED  DECREASE IN OI DESPITE THE RISE IN PRICE IN GOLD ($3.25). WE HAD COMEX LONG TRANSFERS TO LONDON THROUGH THE EFP ROUTE.  

we had: 14 notice(s) filed upon for 1400  oz of gold.

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

GLD:

No changes in gold inventory at the GLD/

Inventory rests tonight: 843.09 tonnes.

SLV

TODAY WE HAD NO CHANGE IN SILVER INVENTORY AT THE SLV

INVENTORY RESTS AT 318.074 MILLION OZ

 

end

.

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

1. Today, we had the open interest in silver FELL  BY 1,349   contracts from 218,944  DOWN TO 200,595 (AND now A LITTLE FURTHER FROM THE NEW COMEX RECORD SET ON FRIDAY/APRIL 21/2017 AT 234,787) WITH THE FALL IN SILVER PRICE (A LOSS OF 11 CENTS). OUR BANKERS PROBABLY USED THEIR EMERGENCY PROCEDURE TO ISSUE PRIVATE EFP’S FOR DECEMBER(WE DO NOT GET A LOOK AT THESE CONTRACTS) WHICH GIVES OUR COMEX LONGS A FIAT BONUS PLUS A DELIVERABLE PRODUCT OVER IN LONDON. THIS IS QUITE EARLY FOR THESE EFP ISSUANCE..USUALLY WE WITNESS THIS ONE WEEK PRIOR TO FIRST DAY NOTICE AND THIS CONTINUES RIGHT UP UNTIL FDN. I ORIGINALLY THOUGHT THAT WE COULD HAVE  HAD SOME BANKER SHORT COVERING AT THE LOWER SILVER PRICE.  HOWEVER GOLD’S RISE (AND INCREASING DEMAND) AND THE RAID TODAY LEADS ME TO BELIEVE THAT WE HAD THE FORMER.

RESULT:  A GOOD SIZED DECREASE IN SILVER OI AT THE COMEX WITH THE 11 CENT FALL IN PRICE  (WITH RESPECT TO YESTERDAY’S TRADING). WE PROBABLY HAD MORE EFP’S ISSUED
