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.

A Technical Correction in Dollar can put some Pressure on Gold Prices

Given the relatively small amount of deliverable gold in the market at any one time, the gold price has the potential to be extremely volatile with this level of off-market speculation hanging over it. The wider public is slowly waking up to the horrors of negative interest rates & withdrawal of high-denomination bank notes, both which will almost certainly increase demand for physical gold.

Gold and Silver Ignore Correction Calls - Precious Metals

Gold and silver are in a new bull market. While it is very difficult to buy into a market that has already gained substantially, history argues that the larger risk is staying out of that market especially if it only recently made a major bottom. The epic “forever” bear market of 2011-2015 lingers in the minds of many and that is why it is so difficult to believe the recent strength can continue.

JPMorgan Corners LME Aluminum Market, Leading To Strange "Price Anomalies"

For some months now there have been large holdings of aluminum warrants, which are a claim to metal stored in warehouses approved by the LME. Currently there is a dominant position holding 50-79% of warrants. “JPMorgan have been doing this on-and-off for a long time. The backwardation (or premium) doesn’t accurately reflect oversupply,” a Reuters source at a commodity trading firm said.

Charts with more Words than Registered Gold at COMEX

COMEX has NEVER EVER gone into an active delivery month with such a small amount of registered gold available. In fact, I cannot remember a time when the registered category was ever more sparse than it is now. The amount of gold in the registered category is now roughly $80 million. This is not only scary, I cannot believe COMEX would allow these numbers to be seen.

Silver Open Interest Anomaly

Open interest is roughly 175,000 contracts, which is about 875,000,000 ounces of paper silver. At market price that is about $13 Billion, or only about 15% of what the Fed created each month during QE3. It would take very little digital currency, relatively speaking, to buy all the open interest, or to crush prices via naked sales of paper contracts.

Market Report: Better tone for Volatile Gold

Having broken down through major support at $1180 level which had held for 18 months, one would expect gold to consolidate before attempting to break back up through it. If & when it does break convincingly upwards, gold will be sending a strongly positive technical signal. Silver followed similarly & the corresponding level is $17.

Manipulation and Cornering of the Gold Market

If JPMorgan is forced to divest its corner on the Gold Market that would be such a regulatory sea change that it would make it extremely unlikely that JPM would short aggressively on the next Silver Rally
