The open interest in gold fell to 505,829 contracts despite gold being up $5.05 yesterday. Silver’s OI continues to drop (tonight:188,627) as the bankers are looking over their shoulder at London and witnessing huge shortages of physical metal plus a severe backwardation. I wrote the following yesterday:  “We are now entering options expiry week and you know that gold and silver will be whacked until August 31.2017 (a week this Thursday). The crooks will do anything to keep gold below $1300.00 and silver below $17.10”

The bankers started their whacking so our underwriting banks steal from the public at large.

Let us have a look at the data for today

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

In silver, the total open interest SURPRISINGLY FELL by 204 contracts from 188,831 down to 188,627 with THE FLAT PRICE THAT SILVER UNDERTOOK WITH  YESTERDAY’S TRADING (DOWN 0 CENTS) . THE LOSS IN OI ALSO CONTRASTS COMPLETELY TO THE LOSS IN GOLD OI DESPITE GOLD’S RISE IN PRICE YESTERDAY. WE MAY BE EXPERIENCING BANKER CAPITULATION IN BOTH GOLD AND SILVER NOW. IN SILVER AGAIN, THE BANKERS ARE LOATHE TO SUPPLY NEW PAPER.  NEWBIE LONGS JUST TRADED CONTRACTS WITH OLDER SPECS.

RESULT: A SLIGHTLY LOWER OI WITH NO GAIN IN PRICE.

 In ounces, the OI is still represented by just UNDER 1 BILLION oz i.e.  0.944 BILLION TO BE EXACT or 135% of annual global silver production (ex Russia & ex China).

FOR THE NEW FRONT MAY MONTH/ THEY FILED: 14 NOTICE(S) FOR 70,000OZ OF SILVER

In gold, the open interest FELL BY ONLY 826 CONTRACTS DESPITE THE RISE  in price of gold ($5.05 GAIN ON MONDAY .). The new OI for the gold complex rests at 505,829. THE LOSS IN OPEN INTEREST DESPITE THE GAIN IN PRICE MAY MEAN THAT THE BANKERS ARE NOW BEGINNING TO FEEL PAIN IN GOLD. WE WILL HAVE TO SEE MORE DAYS LIKE THIS TO SEE IF A PATTERN DEVELOPS. THE BANKERS DID NOT SUPPLY MUCH OF THE SHORT PAPER AND NEWBIE LONGS DROVE UP THE PRICE WITH SELLING COMING FROM OLDER LONGS. TODAY, THE BANKERS ORCHESTRATED A RAID ON GOLD AND SILVER HOPING TO SEE BOTH GOLD AND SILVER LEAVES FALL FROM THEIR RESPECTIVE TREES.

Result: A LOSS IN OI with GOOD GAIN IN PRICE IN GOLD.

we had: 0 notice(s) filed upon for nil oz of gold.

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

1. Today, we had the open interest in silver FALL BY 204 contracts from 188,831 DOWN TO 188,627 (AND now A LITTLE FURTHER FROM THE NEW COMEX RECORD SET ON FRIDAY/APRIL 21/2017 AT 234,787) DESPITE THE FLAT SILVER PRICE SILVER. AGAIN WE WITNESS THE BANKERS REFUSE TO SUPPLY THE SHORT PAPER. NEWBIE LONGS TRADED CONTRACTS WITH OLDER SPECS.  RESULT: LOWER OI WITH A FLAT PRICE.
