Concentrated COMEX Silver Shorts - The Greatest Lie in the History of Market Regulation

Until the physical market overwhelms the COMEX silver concentrated short scam, the big shorts may continue to prevail, although they have been seriously underwater of late, for the first time ever. Being the key factor in silver and gold, it will be the resolution and eventual dissolution of the concentrated short position that will drive silver prices in the future. I encourage all to dig into this issue.

Further Surge in Silver and Gold will kill Commercial Traders

In contemplating what occurs next, will the silver and gold commercial traders succeed in turning prices lower & triggering off technical fund selling on the COMEX & also cool off ETF demand for physical metal? To be fair, either outcome, a price selloff or surge, must be considered possible, but recent developments raise the odds of a commercial failure in which prices surge, especially for silver.

The Comex Paper Silver and Gold Fraud Deepens

We’ve written quite often of the surge in Comex gold open interest and the attempts by The Banks to manage the paper derivative price by increasing the paper derivative supply. In this post, we turn to Comex silver, where The Banks are pulling the same tricks but with a very interesting twist. Silver investors would be wise to consider the possibilities and act accordingly.

Is Silver The Next One For Chinese Momentum Investors?

Individual investors tend to be most active when markets are rising, and have dominated past rallies in Chinese futures. Open interest in silver on the Shanghai Futures Exchange has been steadily increasing this year (ballooned from less than 200,000 contracts in 2012 to over 600,000 since April 2016), with open interest now roughly equal and equivalent in size to that of COMEX.

Silver Prices - The “Five Year Plan” and the Great Leap Forward

Five years ago paper silver contracts on the COMEX hit a multi-decade high over $48 on April 29, 2011. The low occurred at about $13.60 in December of last year, when paper silver prices were down about 70% from their April 2011 high. Silver prices will move upward to $50 and eventually to $100, depending upon the degree of dollar devaluation.

Silver Investment is a MUST due to Market Fundamentals

Many investors are more concerned about the short-term silver price movement than its long-term fundamentals. Here are some of the most important fundamental reasons to own physical silver. My analysis on the future value of silver is based on energy. This is much different from the forecasts by most of the precious metals analysts.

Comex Registered Silver Inventories Plunge Nearly 10% In One Day

The Comex continues to see a drain of its Registered Silver inventories, while the SHFE inventories are showing a rapid increase. It will be interesting to see what happens at these two exchanges over the next 6 months. If Comex Registered Silver inventories continue to fall, this could spell more trouble for the highly leveraged paper based precious metal markets going forward.

Silver: Until Paper Currencies Stop Losing Value

It is relatively easy to increase debt, increase currency in circulation, devalue currencies, and spend more on warfare and welfare. It is difficult to increase silver and gold reserves. The prices for silver and gold will eventually reflect their scarcity, their high demand, and the ease with which central banks can devalue their currencies.

Shanghai vs Comex: Opposite Moves In Silver Inventories

COMEX silver inventories peaked in the beginning of July at 184.5 million oz (Moz) and then continued to decline, reaching a low of 159.9 Moz presently. Shanghai Futures Exchange silver inventories bottomed on August 18th at 233 metric tons (mt), then continued to grow over the past three months to the present 528 mt.

JP Morgan Loses 45% Of Registered Gold Stock In One Day

While the drain of COMEX gold and silver Registered inventories continues as demand for physical precious metals increases, JP Morgan experienced a 45% decline of its Registered Gold Inventories in one day. JP Morgan now only has a lousy 10,777 oz of gold remaining in its Registered gold inventories.

Stunning Development In The U.S. Silver Market

While the current shortage in the retail silver market continues to stress investors as they have to wait 6 to 8 weeks for certain products, it seems to be carrying over into the 1,000 oz wholesale silver market. One of the leading indicators of the wholesale silver market is the COMEX Registered Silver Inventories.

There can be no Clearer Proof of Manipulation in COMEX Silver

There can be no clearer proof of manipulation in COMEX silver than was documented in the COT Report as on May 19, 2015. In just one reporting week, more managed money contracts were bought & more commercial contracts were sold in COMEX silver and gold futures than ever in over 30 year history of the COT report.

Something BIG Is About To Happen To Silver

U.S. silver bullion imports surged 44% in the first months of 2015 compared to the same period last year. Who is acquiring this silver… and why? Also as per the recent COT Report, the Commercials (big bullion banks) added a massive 18,595 new silver short contracts in just the last week. What does this all mean?

Is JP Morgan Cornering The Silver Bullion Market?

Silver market analyst Ted Butler estimates that JP Morgan may currently hold far more than their official figure of 55 million ounces. He believes it to be closer to 350 million ounces. Annual global silver production is 820 million ounces. If Butler is correct, JP Morgan in a position to corner the physical silver market today.

Silver Will Be The Gift That Keeps On Giving In 2015

Bullion banks that are massively short paper silver might have a bigger problem with delivering physical silver right now than they do with gold. It’s almost as if the bonafide physical silver accumulators are removing as much physical silver possible. Even HSBC issued a report forecasting an 11 million ounce supply deficit in 2015.

No Proof JPMorgan Not the Big Buyer of Silver Eagles

The most plausible explanation for why such an extraordinary number of Silver Eagles were sold in 2014 relative to Gold Eagles is the presence of a big silver buyer. Silver Eagles only account for a small slice of what I allege JPMorgan has acquired in terms of physical silver. If JPM has acquired the amount of silver I claim, it’s no small matter.

Lawless Manipulation of Gold & Silver Markets by Public Authorities

Decline in gold or silver prices vs. the dollar conveys that the dollar is strong when in fact, the dollar should be under pressure from over-issuance of dollars & dollar-denominated debt. What we have been experiencing since the 2008 crisis is the subordination of law & the financial regulatory agencies to the interests of a few private banks.

How Gold And Silver Price Decline And Short Covering Was Manufactured

JPMorgan rigs the price lower on those big down days, but not by selling enormous quantities of COMEX silver contracts short. JPM gets the price snowball rolling down by selling a small quantity of contracts short at critical times with the intent of inducing technical funds to sell larger quantities which JPM & other commercials then buy.

Silver At $15? You Can’t Have Any!

If you have waited to this point to purchase silver or gold, the market told you something this past week. The market has spoken and told you “if you want $15 silver, you can’t have any!” The danger, is what will happen when prices are higher and “you can’t have any?” Don’t let this happen to you!

Silver Fraud? Is there enough Inventory? Will Buyers get Silver?

Over last 2 weeks, the physical silver market has tightened & there are “wait” times for delivery & with rising premiums. Why? Because demand has increased (coaxed by lower silver prices) and is now outstripping the supply and ability to fabricate enough supply. Will we again see a $9 COMEX price, yet none to be had physically at $15?
