Today, the bankers tried to raid both gold and silver for the third consecutive day and failed again. The open interest in silver continues to fall despite a rise in price and it sure looks like banker capitulation as they try to extricate themselves from their mess. Another good indicator of trouble for our bankers is that the bleeding of gold has stopped (physical gold supplying Eastern countries e.g. China, Russia and Turkey). Today 4.14 tonnes of gold was added to inventories. SLV showed no gain or loss of silver inventory.
Let us have a look at the data for today
In silver, the total open interest SURPRISINGLY FELL BY A HUGE4967 contracts from 194,445 down to 189,478 DESPITE THE RISE IN THE PRICE THAT SILVER TOOK WITH RESPECT TO FRIDAY’S TRADING (UP 4 CENT(S) AND THE FAILED RAID. SIMPLE EXPLANATION: THE BANKERS HAVE CAPITULATED….THEY ARE TRYING TO COVER THEIR SHORTFALL AT HIGHER AND HIGHER PRICES. THE BANKERS ARE HAVING EXTREME DIFFICULTY IN SUPPLYING ADDITIONAL SHORT PAPER AND LONGS CONTINUE TO ADVANCE TAKING ON THE BANKER SHORTS. THE BATTLE OF WATERLOO WILL BE FAST APPROACHING
In ounces, the OI is still represented by just UNDER 1 BILLION oz i.e. 0.947 BILLION TO BE EXACT or 135% of annual global silver production (ex Russia & ex China).
FOR THE NEW FRONT MAY MONTH/ THEY FILED: 20 NOTICE(S) FOR 100,000OZ OF SILVER
In gold, the open interest ROSE by A CONSIDERABLE 5,002 WITH the RISE in price of gold ($4.10 GAIN ON FRIDAY.) The new OI for the gold complex rests at 480,915. IN COMPLETE CONTRAST TO SILVER, THE BANKERS SUPPLIED THE MASSIVE AMOUNT OF PAPER SHORT GOLD WHICH WAS GOBBLED UP BY THE LONGS. THE NEWBIE SPEC SHORTS HAVE NO DOUBT COVERED THEIR SHORT POSITION BY NOW. I WROTE THE FOLLOWING TO MY FRIENDS OVER THE WEEKEND: “WE MUST BE COGNIZANT OF ANOTHER RAID THIS COMING WEEK AS THE OI FOR GOLD IS EXTREMELY HIGH AND THE NOOSE IS AROUND THEIR NECKS IN SILVER.” THE CROOKS DID NOT TAKE LONG TO INITIATE ANOTHER RAID TODAY
we had: 34 notice(s) filed upon for 3400 oz of gold.
With respect to our two criminal funds, the GLD and the SLV:
Today, a big change in gold inventory: a deposit of 4.14 tonnes into the GLD
Inventory rests tonight: 791.01 tonnes
IN THE LAST 21 TRADING DAYS: GLD SHEDS 45.96 TONNES YET GOLD IS HIGHER BY $45.85 .
Today: : WE NO CHANGES IN SILVER INVENTORY TONIGHT:
INVENTORY RESTS AT 335.825 MILLION OZ
First, here is an outline of what will be discussed tonight:
1. Today, we had the open interest in silver FALL BY 4,967 contracts from 194,445 DOWN TO 189,478 (AND now A LITTLE FURTHER FROM THE NEW COMEX RECORD SET ON FRIDAY/APRIL 21/2017 AT 234,787). THE FALL IN OPEN INTEREST WAS ACCOMPANIED BY A SMALL RISE IN PRICE AND FOR THE FIRST TIME WE ARE WITNESSING BANKER CAPITULATION. BANKERS ARE LOATHE TO SUPPLY NEW SHORT PAPER AND THE LONGS CONTINUE TO ENTER THE ARENA PURCHASING WHATEVER SILVER THEY CAN AND WILLING TO TAKE ON OUR CROOKED BANKERS.
