Note: This analysis focuses on gold and silver physical delivery on the Comex. See the article What is the Comex for more detail. Additionally, numbers from Comex for December 1 are still preliminary as of publishing. Numbers may change some.
This Comex delivery analysis is usually published on First Notice Day. This is directly after First Position day. The Open Interest on the close of First Position is usually a great indication of what delivery volume the month will see. These are when contracts must post 100% collateral for their futures contract.
