Determined Entity Trying to Get Its Hands On Whatever Silver Is Available – Harvey Organ

The amount standing for the silver metal again rose in similar fashion to what we witnessed last month and also in April.  We certainly have a determined entity trying to get its hands on whatever silver is available.

The jobs report (see below) was horrendous.  As soon as it was published gold and silver got caught bids with gold ending higher in the session by $9.80 at 1276.20 and silver was ready to breach $17.50 closing up 25 cents at $17.49.  In the access market gold resumed its northerly trajectory with gold finishing at $1279 and silver at $17.57.  At the GLD another 3.55 tonnes was added.

 

Over at the comex, the amount standing for the silver metal again rose in similar fashion to what we witnessed last month and also in April.  we certainly have a determined entity trying to get its hands on whatever silver is available.

Let us have a look at the data for today

.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

In silver, the total open interest ROSE BY 1304  contract(s) UP to 205,750 DESPITE THE FALL IN PRICE OF SILVER THAT TOOK PLACE WITH YESTERDAY’S TRADING (DOWN  13 CENT(S).   In ounces, the OI is still represented by just OVER 1 BILLION oz i.e.  1.0280 BILLION TO BE EXACT or 147% of annual global silver production (ex Russia & ex China).

FOR THE NEW FRONT MAY MONTH/ THEY FILED: 392 NOTICE(S) FOR 1,960,000  OZ OF SILVER

In gold, the total comex gold ROSE BY A STRONG 1,836 contracts DESPITE THE FALL IN THE PRICE OF GOLD ($5.00 with YESTERDAY’S TRADING). The total gold OI stands at 444,814 contracts.

we had 739 notice(s) filed upon for 73,900 oz of gold.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

With respect to our two criminal funds, the GLD and the SLV:

GLD:

We had a huge change in tonnes of gold at the GLD: a deposit of 3.55 tonnes into the GLD

Inventory rests tonight: 851.00 tonnes

.

SLV

Today: no changes in inventory

THE SLV Inventory rests at: 340.976 million oz

end

.

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

1. Today, we had the open interest in silver ROSE BY 1,304 contracts UP TO 205,750 (AND now A LITTLE  CLOSER TO THE NEW COMEX RECORD SET ON FRIDAY/APRIL 21/2017 AT 234,787), WITH THE FALL IN PRICE FOR SILVER WITH YESTERDAY’S TRADING  (13 CENTS). NO QUESTION THAT WE HAD FAILED SHORT COVERING BY THE BANKERS ALONG WITH SOME BANKER DELTA HEDGING WITH THE STRONGER PERFORMANCE FROM SILVER OF LATE.

3. ASIAN AFFAIRS

i)Late THURSDAY night/FRIDAY morning: Shanghai closed UP 2.91 POINTS OR 0.09%   / /Hang Sang CLOSED UP 114.83 POINTS OR 0.44% The Nikkei closed UP 317.25 POINTS OR 1.60%/Australia’s all ordinaires  CLOSED UP  0.84%/Chinese yuan (ONSHORE) closed  DOWN at 6.8205/Oil DOWN to 47.07 dollars per barrel for WTI and 49.33 for Brent.

b) REPORT ON JAPAN

c) REPORT ON CHINA

i)A very important article written by Byron King.  It sure looks like the Chinese are anxious to purchase oil from Saudi Arabia only if this country accepts yuan as payment.  Saudi Arabia knows that this would be the death knell of the uSA reserve currency and end the one full swoop the petro-dollar scheme

( Byron King/DailyReckoning.com)

ii)A terrific commentary from Jim Rickards as he describes how China has been able to maintain high growth rates but that is leading to a death spiral:

( Jim Rickards/DailyReckoning)

4. EUROPEAN AFFAIRS

i)ITALY

 

The banking crisis in Italy is just not going away.  Italy has almost 360 billion euros of non performing loans on banking balance sheets or 18% of total loans.  The government is seeking a bailout and not a bail in as huge numbers of moms and pops bought debt/equities because they thought the investments were sound. A bail in would crush huge numbers of Italian citizens.  This is why the government is pushing for a bail out but the EU states that a bail in is mandatory. No wonder we are witnessing a huge run on Italian banks

( zero hedge)

ii)SPAIN

OHOh!! Spain’s sixth largest bank, Banco Popular in trouble and needs a huge cash infusion of which nobody is willing. Investors are dumping bonds and stock like crazy because they do not want to be long over the weekend

(courtesy zero hedge)

5. RUSSIAN AND MIDDLE EASTERN AFFAIRS

6 .GLOBAL ISSUES

For the first time, the balance sheet of the Bank of Japan and the ECB exceed that of the Fed.  We know know that the Fed wants to roll off its balance sheet and not repurchase debt with dollars earned.  In essence this is tightening and with both the Bank of Japan lessening its purchases along with the ECB, what is going to fuel the global stock markets?

7. OIL ISSUES

WTI holds its value just below $48.00 per barrel and yet USA oil rig counts rise for the 20th consecutive week which should increase production exponentially

10. USA stories

ii)Trump finally asks the Supreme Court to restore his travel ban

iii)JOBS REPORT

a)Gold rises on a terrible jobs report where only 138,000 jobs were added in May.  April was revised much lower and the most important component: wages also disappointed.

( zerohedge)

b)Trading right after the jobs report: 10 yr bond rate plunges to 2.156%, the dollar sinks as does the stock market.  Gold and silver gain

(courtesy zerohedge)

c)AND NOW THE REAL STORY ON THE JOBS REPORT

THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE NOT IN THE LABOUR FORCE SOAR BY A HUGE 608,000 WHICH EXPLAINS WHY THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE LOWERED FROM 4.4 DOWN TO 4.3%

(courtesy zero hedge)

d)Here is another metric that Janet will not like:  full time jobs tumble by 367,000 the biggest in 3 years: this was offset by a gain of 133,000 part time jobs.

Construction jobs lowered by 1,000 but our good old bartenders and waiters added another 30,000 jobs despite massive closings of restaurants.

( zero hedge)

e)Two thirds of all the gains this month was in the minimum wage jobs such as bartenders and waiters

( zerohedge)

f)Now where would our job report be unless we report on our job gains for America’s waiters and bartenders.

just look at the graph below and marvel:

g)Hatzius has now commented that the Fed will no doubt push back on the latter rate hikes due to slowing job growth and weak inflation

(Goldman Sachs/Hatzius/zerohedge)

238,000 jobs.  It is easy to explain the Birth Death model.  If one loses his job, it is “death”.  However the BLS believes that these guys become entrepreneurs and start new businesses and hire more people that are unemployed.  This is the “birth”.  It is total made up.

iii)As expected, Gymboree misses their interest payment and they will now prepare for bankruptcy filings.

Let us head over to the comex:

The total gold comex open interest ROSE BY A STRONG 1,836 CONTRACTS UP  to an OI level of 444,814 WITH THE RISE IN THE PRICE OF GOLD (($5.00 with YESTERDAY’S trading).

We are now in the contract month of JUNE and it is one of the BETTER delivery months  of the year. In this JUNE delivery month  we had A  HUGE LOSS OF 784 contract(s) FALLING TO  3744.  We had 308 notices filed upon yesterday so we LOST 476  contracts or an additional 47,600 oz will  NOT stand for delivery in this very active delivery month of June AND WITHOUT A SHADOW OF DOUBT THESE 476 CONTRACTS RECEIVED AN EFP CONTRACT WHICH ENTITLES THEM TO A FIAT BONUS PLUS A FUTURE GOLD CONTRACT/OR A LONG CALL OR MOST LIKELY A LONDON BASED FORWARD GOLD CONTRACT. THESE EFP’S ARE PRIVATE OFF COMEX TRANSACTIONS. THE REMAINING LONGS ARE REMAINING STOIC AND ARE REFUSING THAT FIAT BONUS 

Below is a little background on the EFP contracts  initiated by our bankers:
 
We now know for certainty that private EFP contracts are given by the bankers when faced with an upcoming active delivery month and they state that this is for emergency purposes only and that they do not have actual physical metal to deliver upon in the front month.  We just do not know the makeup of that private deal.  It is my contention that the longs in GOLD FOR INSTANCE at the end of MAY(for June contracts) were given a fiat bonus plus a long “in the money” call for a  future July contract or a August FUTURE contract or MAYBE EVEN A LONDON BASED FORWARD GOLD CONTRACT. . and this is why the total comex open interest complex obliterates as we enter first day notice.  So now everything makes sense: the obliteration of OI as we enter first day notice has not really occurred in the real sense but replaced with a future long contract call and/or an off -comex London based gold contract  with some bonus money for their effort.

The non active July contract GAINED 19 contracts to stand at 2166 contracts. The next big active month is August and here the OI gained 2,021 contracts up to 322,225.

We had 739 notice(s) filed upon today for 73900 oz

 

 
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
 
 
And now for the wild silver comex results.  Total silver OI ROSE BY 1,304 contracts FROM 204,446 UP TO 205,750 WITH YESTERDAY’S 13 CENT LOSS.  IT SURE LOOKS LIKE OUR BANKERS ARE DESPERATELY TRYING TO COVER THEIR SHORTS IN SILVER BUT TO NO AVAIL. WE ALSO NO DOUBT HAVE CONSIDERABLE EVIDENCE OF SOME DELTA HEDGING BY THE BANKERS TRYING TO OFFSET THAT HUGE SHORT POSITION THEY HAVE BEEN BURGEONING OVER THE YEARS.
 
 
 
 
We are in the NON active delivery month is JUNE  Here the open interest GAINED 19 contract(s) RISING TO 399 contracts. We had 18 notices served upon yesterday so we AGAIN GAINED 37 CONTRACTS OR AN ADDITIONAL 185,000 OZ OF SILVER WILL STAND FOR DELIVERY IN THIS NON ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH OF JUNE.  IT SEEMS WE ARE CONTINUING WHERE WE LEFT OFF LAST MONTH IN SILVER AS INVESTORS ARE WILLING TO FORGO THE FIAT PROFIT JUST TO SECURE PHYSICAL SILVER METAL.
 

The next big active month will be July and here the OI LOST 561 contracts DOWN to 136,090. the month of August, a non active month picked up its first contract to stand at one.  The next big active delivery month for silver will be September and here the OI already jumped by another 514 contracts up to 32,392.

The line in the sand is $18.50 for silver and again it has been defended by the criminal bankers.  Once this level is pierced, the monstrous billion oz of silver shorts will blow up. The bankers are defending the Alamo with their last stand at the $18.50 mark. THE NEW RECORD HIGH IN OPEN INTEREST WAS SET FRIDAY APRIL 21/2017 AT:  234,787.

 

We had 392 notice(s) filed for 1,960,000 oz for the June 2017 contract

 

VOLUMES: for the gold comex

Today the estimated volume was 165,426 contracts which is FAIR

Yesterday’s confirmed volume was 216,891 contracts  which is GOOD

volumes on gold are STILL HIGHER THAN NORMAL!

The total of all issuance by all participants equates to 739  contract(s)  of which 0 notices were stopped (received) by jPMorgan dealer and 303 notice(s) was (were) stopped/ Received) by jPMorgan customer account.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
To calculate the initial total number of gold ounces standing for the JUNE. contract month, we take the total number of notices filed so far for the month (1855) x 100 oz or 185,500 oz, to which we add the difference between the open interest for the front month of MAY (3744 contracts) minus the number of notices served upon today (739) x 100 oz per contract equals 486,000  oz, the number of ounces standing in this active month of JUNE.
 
Thus the INITIAL standings for gold for the JUNE contract month:
No of notices served so far (1855) x 100 oz  or ounces + {(3744)OI for the front month  minus the number of  notices served upon today (739) x 100 oz which equals 486,000 oz standing in this  active delivery month of JUNE  (15.116 tonnes).
WE LOST 476 CONTRACTS OR AN ADDITIONAL 47,600 OZ WILL NOT STAND AT THE COMEX.  HOWEVER THESE GUYS WERE GIVEN EFP CONTRACTS WHICH ENTITLES THEM TO A FIAT BONUS PLUS A FUTURES GOLD CONTRACT OR A LONG CALL ON A GOLD CONTRACT OR MOST LIKELY A LONDON BASED GOLD FORWARD CONTRACT.

Total dealer inventory 945,273.113 or 29.40 tonnes DEALER RAPIDLY LOSING GOLD
Total gold inventory (dealer and customer) = 8,798,342.109 or 273.66 tonnes 
 
 
 
Over a year ago the comex had 303 tonnes of total gold. Today the total inventory rests at 273.66 tonnes for a  loss of 28  tonnes over that period.  Since August 8/2016 we have lost 79 tonnes leaving the comex. However I am including kilobar transactions and they are very suspect at best
 
I have a sneaky feeling that these withdrawals of gold in kilobars are being used in the hypothecating process  and are being used in the raiding of gold!
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
The gold comex is an absolute fraud.  The use of kilobars and exact weights makes the data totally absurd and fraudulent! To me, the only thing that makes sense is the fact that “kilobars: are entries of hypothecated gold sent to other jurisdictions so that they will not be short with their underwritten derivatives in that jurisdiction.  This would be similar to the rehypothecated gold used by Jon Corzine at MF Global.
 
IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS  79 NET TONNES HAS LEFT THE COMEX.

The total number of notices filed today for the JUNE. contract month is represented by 392 contract(s) for 1,960,000 oz. To calculate the number of silver ounces that will stand for delivery in JUNE., we take the total number of notices filed for the month so far at 447 x 5,000 oz  = 2,235,000 oz to which we add the difference between the open interest for the front month of JUNE (399) and the number of notices served upon today (392) x 5000 oz equals the number of ounces standing
 

 

.
 
Thus the initial standings for silver for the JUNE contract month:  447(notices served so far)x 5000 oz  + OI for front month of JUNE.(399 ) -number of notices served upon today (392)x 5000 oz  equals  2,270,000 oz  of silver standing for the JUNE contract month. WE ALSO HAD 0 EFP CONTRACTS THAT WERE ISSUED AS THE LONGS REFUSED A FIAT BONUS: THEY WANTED THEIR SILVER. WE GAINED ANOTHER 185,000 ADDITIONAL OUNCES OF SILVER STANDING FOR DELIVERY.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Volumes: for silver comex
 
 
 
Today the estimated volume was 86,150 which is huge
Yesterday’s  confirmed volume was 79,201 contracts which is HUGE
 
FRIDAY’S ESTIMATED VOLUME OF 79,201 CONTRACTS EQUATES TO 396 MILLION OZ OF SILVER OR 57% OF ANNUAL GLOBAL PRODUCTION OF SILVER EX CHINA EX RUSSIA). IN OUR HEARINGS THE COMMISSIONERS STRESSED THAT THE OPEN INTEREST SHOULD BE AROUND 3% OF THE MARKET.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Total dealer silver:  34.305 million (close to record low inventory  
Total number of dealer and customer silver:   202.230 million oz
 
 
 
The record level of silver open interest is 234,787 contracts set on April 21./2017  with the price at that day at  $18.42
 
The previous record was 224,540 contracts with the price at that time of $20.44

COT Gold Report – Positions as of Tuesday, May 30, 2017
OUR LARGE SPECULATORS:
those large speculators (and right up to May 30) who are long in gold saw an increase of 8790 contracts
those large speculators who are short in gold added 1467 contracts to their short side
 
OUR COMMERCIALS:
those commercials who are long in gold pitched 8363 contracts from their long side
those commercials who are short in gold added a tiny 565 contracts to their short side
 
OUR SMALL SPECS
those small specs that have been long in gold pitched a tiny 874 contracts from their long side
those small specs that have been short in gold covered 2479 contracts from their short side
 
CONCLUSIONS:
commercials go net short by 8928 contracts.  As you can see there is nothing here that would indicate why the specs longs would dump over 31,000 contracts the next day.  No question about it;  EFP’s totally distort the COT report and you will see it first hand next Friday.

Sprott makes hostile $3.1 billion bid for Central Fund of Canada

Toronto-based Sprott Inc. said Wednesday it’s making an all-share hostile takeover bid worth $3.1 billion US for rival bullion holder Central Fund of Canada Ltd.

The money-management firm has filed an application with the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta seeking to allow shareholders of Calgary-based Central Fund to swap their shares for ones in a newly-formed trust that would be substantially similar to Sprott’s existing precious metal holding entities.

The company is going through the courts after its efforts to strike a friendly deal were rebuffed by the Spicer family that controls Central Fund, said Sprott spokesman Glen Williams.

“They weren’t interested in having those discussions,” Williams said.

 Sprott is using the courts to try to give holders of the 252 million non-voting class A shares a say in takeover bids, which Central Fund explicitly states they have no right to participate in. That voting right is reserved for the 40,000 common shares outstanding, which the family of J.C. Stefan Spicer, chairman and CEO of Central Fund, control.

If successful through the courts, Sprott would then need the support of two-thirds of shareholder votes to close the takeover deal, but there’s no guarantee they will make it that far.

“It is unusual to go this route,” said Williams. “There’s no specific precedent where this has worked.”

Sprott did have success last year in taking over Central GoldTrust, a similar fund that was controlled by the Spicer family, after securing support from more than 96 percent of shareholder votes cast.

The firm says Central Fund’s shares are trading at a discount to net asset value and a takeover by Sprott could unlock US$304 million in shareholder value.

Central Fund did not have any immediate comment on the unsolicited offer. Williams said Sprott had not yet heard from Central Fund on the proposal but that some shareholders had already contacted them to voice their support.

Sprott’s existing precious metal holding companies are designed to allow investors to own gold and other metals without having to worry about taking care of the physical bullion.
