The silver OI has held up quite nicely with the $1.20 drop in price.  It’s OI is a touch under 200,000.  With options expiry now out of the way, you will see the OI rise along with silver’s price.  Gold will tag along.

 

Today the gold shares did nicely led by Agnico eagle which was up $4.35  or 10% to $47.83.

 

Let us have a look at the data for today

.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

In silver, the total open interest FELL BY 7,488  contracts DOWN to 199,761 WITH THE SMALL LOSS IN PRICE ( 3 CENTS) WITH RESPECT TO YESTERDAY’S TRADING.  FOR THE PAST FEW YEARS WE HAVE NOTICED THAT THE OPEN INTEREST IN AN ACTIVE MONTH COLLAPSES AS WE APPROACH FIRST DAY NOTICE.  WE NOW KNOW THAT THE MAJORITY OF THE LIQUIDATION RECEIVE AN EFP CONTRACT IN A FUTURE MONTH PLUS FIAT BONUS.  WE HAVE BEEN WITNESSING THIS SAME PATTERN NOW FOR AT LEAST THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS.  i THINK WE HAD NEGLIGIBLE SHORT COVERING BY THE BANKS. In ounces, the OI is still represented by just UNDER 1 BILLION oz i.e.  0.999 BILLION TO BE EXACT or 143% of annual global silver production (ex Russia & ex China).

FOR THE NEW FRONT MAY MONTH/ THEY FILED: 1421 NOTICE(S) FOR 7,105,000  OZ OF SILVER

In gold, the total comex gold FELL SLIGHTLY BY 1,201 contracts DESPITE THE RISE IN THE PRICE OF GOLD ($1.60 with YESTERDAY’S TRADING). The total gold OI stands at 478,922 contracts.

we had 15 notice(s) filed upon for 1500 oz of gold.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

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

GLD:

We had no changes in tonnes of gold at the GLD:

Inventory rests tonight: 853.36 tonnes

.

SLV

Strange!!! We had no change in silver inventory at the SLV today

THE SLV Inventory rests at: 330.283 million oz

end

.

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

1. Today, we had the open interest in silver FELL BY 7,488 contracts DOWN TO 199,761,( AND FURTHER FROM  THE NEW COMEX RECORD SET ON FRIDAY/APRIL 21 AT 234,787), DESPITE THE RATHER SMALL FALL IN PRICE FOR SILVER YESTERDAY (3 CENTS). We may have witnessed short covering by the bankers or we may again have witnessed the power of that obscure EFP contract.  For the past few years, strangely we have seen the open interest collapse as we enter first day notice. The EFP allows the longs to liquidate his delivery contract month for a fiat bonus and the receipt of a future contract month once first day notice has occurred. That may have happened again today.

Let us head over to the comex:

The total gold comex open interest FELL BY 1201 CONTRACTS DOWN to an OI level of 475,179 DESPITE THE  RISE IN THE PRICE OF GOLD ( $1.60 with YESTERDAY’S trading).   The longs still continue to remain stoic as they refused to liquidate any of their contracts despite the constant torment.  We are now in the contract month of MAY and it is one of the POORER delivery months  of the year. In this MAY delivery month  we had A LOSS OF 81 contract(s) FALLING TO 479. Thus by definition, the amount of contacts standing is the initial amount of gold standing for delivery or 47900 oz  (1.4898 tonnes)

 

The next big active month is June/2017 and here the OI LOST 2509 contracts DOWN to 336,256. The next big active month is August and here the OI gained 1124 contracts up to 52,690.

We had 15 notice(s) filed upon today for 1500 oz

 

 
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
 
 
And now for the wild silver comex results.  Total silver OI FELL BY 7,488 contracts FROM  207,249 down to 199,761  WITH YESTERDAY’S TINY  3 CENT PRICE LOSS.  I AM SURE  WE HAVE WITNESSED ANOTHER OF THOSE EFP EVENTS ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU SEE GOLD’S OPEN INTEREST REMAIN STEADY  LIKE TODAY .   ONCE WE APPROACH FIRST DAY NOTICE OF AN ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH, JAMES TURK AND KOOS JANSEN NOTICED AN OBSCURE VEHICLE BEING USED (IN HIGH QUANTITY) BY THE SHORT BANKERS, WHEREBY A LONG CONTRACT HOLDER RECEIVES A FIAT BONUS AND A FUTURES CONTRACT IN RETURN FOR NOT TAKING DELIVERY.  USUALLY THE TOTAL OPEN INTEREST RETURNS TO ITS PREVIOUS LEVEL ONCE THE NEW ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH COMMENCES AS THE LONG HOLDER WOULD RECEIVE THROUGH A PRIVATE DEAL SAY A JUNE OR JULY SILVER CONTRACT.
 
 
 
 
 
 
We are in the active delivery month is MAY  Here the open interest LOST A WHOPPING 14,003 contracts FALLING TO 3360 contracts. That was the greatest amount of loss of contracts heading into a front month that I have ever seen.Thus by definition, the total initial amount of silver oz that are willing to stand is only 3360 contracts x 5000 oz = 16,800,000 oz.
I am now convinced that the entire comex is a paper game and no actual deliveries take place.

The non active June contract GAINED 87 contracts to stand at 798. The next big active month will be July and here the OI GAINED 54538 contracts UP to 156,597.

 

For those keeping score, the initial amount of silver oz that stood for delivery for the May 2016 contract month: 28.01 million oz.  By conclusion of the month only 13.58 million oz stood and the rest was cash settled.(EFP ROUTE)

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 1421 notice(s) filed for 7,105,000 oz for the MAY 2017 contract

 

VOLUMES: for the gold comex

Today the estimated volume was 91,527 contracts which is POOR.

Yesterday’s confirmed volume was 215,817 contracts  which is  good.

volumes on gold are STILL HIGHER THAN NORMAL!

The total of all issuance by all participants equates to 15 contract(s)  of which 0 notices were stopped (received) by jPMorgan dealer and 0 notice(s) was (were) stopped/ Received) by jPMorgan customer account.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
To calculate the initial total number of gold ounces standing for the MAY. contract month, we take the total number of notices filed so far for the month (15) x 100 oz or 1500 oz, to which we add the difference between the open interest for the front month of MAY (479 contracts) minus the number of notices served upon today (15) x 100 oz per contract equals 47,900 oz, the number of ounces standing in this  active month of MAY.
 
Thus the INITIAL standings for gold for the MAY contract month:
No of notices served so far (15) x 100 oz  or ounces + {(479)OI for the front month  minus the number of  notices served upon today (15) x 100 oz which equals 47900 oz standing in this non active delivery month of MAY  (1.4898 tonnes),
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
 
 
 
I have now gone over all of the final deliveries for this year and it is startling.
 
Here are the final deliveries for all of 2016 and the first 5 months of  2017
Jan 2016:  .5349 tonnes  (Jan is a non delivery month)
Feb 2016:  7.9876 tonnes (Feb is a delivery month/deliveries this month very low)
March 2016: 2.311 tonnes (March is a non delivery month)
April:  12.3917 tonnes (April is a delivery month/levels on the low side
And then something happens and from May forward deliveries boom!
May; 6.889 tonnes (May is a non delivery month)
June; 48.552 tonnes ( June is a very big delivery month and in the end deliveries were huge)
July: 21.452 tonnes (July is a non delivery month and generally a poor one/not this time!)
August: 44.358 tonnes (August is a good delivery month and it came to fruition)
Sept:  8.4167 tonnes (Sept is a non delivery month)
Oct; 30.407 tonnes
Nov.    8.3950 tonnes.
DEC/2016.   29.931 tonnes
JAN/2017     3.9004 tonnes
FEB/ 18.734 tonnes
March: 0.5816 tonnes
April/2017: 2.8678
MAY:2017/  1.4898 TONNES
 
total for the 17 months;  249.157 tonnes
average 14.65 tonnes per month
 
 
 
 
 
 
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
 
 
 
 
 
Total dealer inventory 914,233.183 or 28.43 tonnes DEALER RAPIDLY LOSING GOLD
Total gold inventory (dealer and customer) = 8,954,376.878 or 278.52 tonnes 
 
 
 
Over a year ago the comex had 303 tonnes of total gold. Today the total inventory rests at 278.52 tonnes for a  loss of 24  tonnes over that period.  Since August 8/2016 we have lost 75 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 10 MONTHS  75 NET TONNES HAS LEFT THE COMEX.

***deposits into JPMorgan have now resumed.
In the month of March and February, JPMorgan stopped (received) almost all of the comex silver contracts.
why is JPMorgan bringing in so much silver??? why is this not criminal in that they are also the massive short in silver
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
total customer deposits  1,851,202.282 oz
 
 
 we had 1 adjustment(s)
Out of the CNT vault:
2,842,649.620 oz was adjusted out of the customer and this landed into the dealer account of CNT
 
 
The total number of notices filed today for the MAY. contract month is represented by 1421 contract(s) for 7,105,000 oz. To calculate the number of silver ounces that will stand for delivery in MAY., we take the total number of notices filed for the month so far at 1421 x 5,000 oz  = 7,105,000 oz to which we add the difference between the open interest for the front month of MAY (3360) and the number of notices served upon today (1421) x 5000 oz equals the number of ounces standing 
 
Thus the initial standings for silver for the MAY contract month:  1421(notices served so far)x 5000 oz  + OI for front month of APRIL.(3360 ) -number of notices served upon today (1421)x 5000 oz  equals  16,800,000 oz  of silver standing for the MAY contract month. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Volumes: for silver comex
 
 
 
Today the estimated volume was 32,209 which is very FAIR 
Yesterday’s  confirmed volume was 139,186 contracts which is humongous
 
(TODAY’S CONFIRMED. VOLUME OF 139,186 CONTRACTS EQUATES TO 696 MILLION OZ OF SILVER OR 99% 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:  32.531 million (close to record low inventory  
Total number of dealer and customer silver:   196.561 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
