Let us have a look at the data for today

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

In silver, the total OPEN INTEREST ROSE BY A VERY STRONG 5583 CONTRACTS FROM 238,613 UP TO 244,196 ACCOMPANYING YESTERDAY’S 12 CENT RISE IN SILVER PRICING AT THE COMEX. WE HAVE GENERALLY BEEN WITNESSING A SLOW COMEX ACCUMULATION THESE PAST SEVERAL DAYS AND AFTER A ONE DAY HIATUS LAST WEEK, IT CONTINUES ONWARD.  YESTERDAY I WROTE: “TUESDAY’S OI SHOULD BE A WHOPPER”. ACTUALLY IT WAS TODAY AS WE NOW HAVE AN ALL TIME RECORD FOR COMEX OPEN INTEREST.

WE HAVE ALSO WITNESSED A LARGE AMOUNT OF PHYSICAL METAL STAND FOR COMEX DELIVERY(WELL OVER 30 MILLION OZ AT THE COMEX FOR JULY AND OVER 6 MILLION OZ FOR AUGUST) AS WELL AS CONSIDERABLE LONGS PACKING THEIR BAGS AND MIGRATING OVER TO LONDON IN GREATER NUMBERS IN THE FORM OF EFP’S.  WE WERE  NOTIFIED  THAT WE HAD A RATHER SMALL SIZED NUMBER OF COMEX LONGS TRANSFERRING THEIR CONTRACTS TO LONDONTHROUGH THE EFP:

571 EFP’S FOR SEPT. , 0 EFP’S FOR DECEMBER AND ZERO FOR ALL  OTHER MONTHS  AND THEREFORE TOTAL ISSUANCE: OF 664 CONTRACTS. WITH THE TRANSFER OF 571 CONTRACTS, WHAT THE CME IS STATING IS THAT THERE IS NO SILVER (OR GOLD) TO BE DELIVERED UPON AT THE COMEX AS THEY MUST EXPORT THEIR OBLIGATION TO LONDON. ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT THERE CAN BE A DELAY OF 24-48 HRS IN THE ISSUING OF EFP’S. THE 571 EFP CONTRACTS TRANSLATES INTO 2.885MILLION OZ AND ACCOMPANYING:

1.THE 12 CENT RISE IN SILVER PRICE AT THE COMEX AND

2. THE STRONG AMOUNT OF SILVER OUNCES WHICH STOOD FOR THE JUNE/2018 COMEX DELIVERY MONTH. (5.420 MILLION OZ)  30.370 MILLION OZ  STANDING FOR DELIVERY IN JULY, AND NOW 6.000 MILLION OZ FOR AUGUST.

 

ACCUMULATION FOR EFP’S/SILVER/J.P.MORGAN’S HOUSE OF BRIBES, / STARTING FROM FIRST DAY NOTICE/FOR MONTH OF JULY:

20,716 CONTRACTS (FOR 16 TRADING DAYS TOTAL 20,716 CONTRACTS) OR 103.580 MILLION OZ: (AVERAGE PER DAY: 1294 CONTRACTS OR 6.473 MILLION OZ/DAY)

TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA AS TO THE HUGE SUPPLY THIS MONTH IN SILVER:  SO FAR THIS MONTH OF JULY:  103.580 MILLION PAPER OZ HAVE MORPHED OVER TO LONDON. THIS REPRESENTS AROUND 14.8% OF ANNUAL GLOBAL PRODUCTION (EX CHINA EX RUSSIA)*  JUNE’S 345.43 MILLION OZ IS THE SECOND HIGHEST RECORDED ISSUANCE OF EFP’S AND IT FOLLOWED THE RECORD SET IN APRIL 2018 OF 385.75 MILLION OZ.

ACCUMULATION IN YEAR 2018 TO DATE SILVER EFP’S:           1,933.24    MILLION OZ.

ACCUMULATION FOR JAN 2018:                                              236.879     MILLION OZ

ACCUMULATION FOR FEB 2018:                                               244.95        MILLION OZ

ACCUMULATION FOR MARCH 2018:                                        236.67         MILLION OZ

ACCUMULATION FOR APRIL 2018:                                           385.75         MILLION OZ

ACCUMULATION FOR MAY 2018:                                             210.05         MILLION OZ

ACCUMULATION FOR JUNE 2018:                                           345.43         MILLION OZ

ACCUMULATION FOR JULY 2018:                                            172.84          MILLION OZ

RESULT: WE HAD A VERY STRONG SIZED INCREASE IN COMEX OI SILVER COMEX CONTRACTS OF 5583 WITH THE 12 CENT RISE IN SILVER PRICING AT THE COMEX YESTERDAY. THE CME NOTIFIED US THAT WE HAD A SMALL SIZED EFP ISSUANCE OF 571  CONTRACTS WHICH EXITED OUT OF THE SILVER COMEX AND TRANSFERRED THEIR OI TO LONDON AS FORWARDS. SPECULATORS CONTINUED THEIR INTEREST IN ATTACKING THE SILVER COMEX FOR PHYSICAL SILVER (SEE COMEX DATA) .

TODAY WE GAINED A VERY STRONG SIZED: 6154 TOTAL OI CONTRACTS ON THE TWO EXCHANGES:

i.e 571 OPEN INTEREST CONTRACTS HEADED FOR LONDON  (EFP’s) TOGETHER WITH A INCREASE OF 5583  OI COMEX CONTRACTS. AND ALL OF THIS DEMAND HAPPENED WITH A 12 CENT RISE IN PRICE OF SILVER  AND A CLOSING PRICE OF $14.78 WITH RESPECT TO YESTERDAY’S TRADING. YET WE HAD A GIGANTIC AMOUNT OF SILVER STANDING AT THE COMEX FOR DELIVERY IN THE BIG JULY DELIVERY MONTH OF SLIGHTLY OVER 30 MILLION OZ AND NOW IN AUGUST ANOTHER BIG 6.000 MILLION OZ IN A NON ACTIVE MONTH. IT SURE LOOKS LIKE ANOTHER FAILED BANKER SHORT COVERING EXERCISE AS BANKERS ARE SCRAMBLING TO COVER THEIR HUGE SHORTFALL IN SILVER.

In ounces AT THE COMEX, the OI is still represented by OVER 1 BILLION oz i.e. 1.221 MILLION OZ TO BE EXACT or 175% of annual global silver production (ex Russia & ex China).

FOR THE NEW FRONT AUGUST MONTH/ THEY FILED AT THE COMEX: 0 NOTICE(S) FOR NIL OZ OF SILVER

IN SILVER,PRIOR TO TODAY, WE  SET THE NEW RECORD OF OPEN INTEREST AT 243,411 CONTRACTSON APRIL 9.2018.  AND AGAIN THIS HAS BEEN SET WITH A LOW PRICE OF $16.51.  

AND NOW WE RECORD FOR POSTERITY ANOTHER ALL TIME RECORD OPEN INTEREST AT THE COMEX OF 244,196 CONTRACTS AND AGAIN WHEN THE RECORD IS SET, THE PRICE OF SILVER IS LOWER THAT THE PREVIOUS ONE. TODAY’S LOW PRICE IS 14.78.

ON THE DEMAND SIDE WE HAVE THE FOLLOWING:

  1. HUGE AMOUNTS OF SILVER STANDING FOR DELIVERY  (MARCH/2018: 27 MILLION OZ , APRIL/2018 : 2.485 MILLION OZ  MAY: 36.285 MILLION OZ ; JUNE/2018  (5.420 MILLION OZ) AND JULY 2018 AMOUNT STANDING: 30.370 MILLION OZ   ) AND NOW FOR AUGUST 6.000 MILLION OZ.
  2. HUGE RECORD OPEN INTEREST IN SILVER 243,411 CONTRACTS (OR 1.217 BILLION OZ/ SET APRIL 9/2018) AND NOW AGAIN TODAY:  244,196 CONTRACTS, AUGUST 22.2018 WITH A SILVER PRICE OF $14.78
  3. HUGE ANNUAL EFP’S ISSUANCE EQUAL TO 2.9 BILLION OZ OR 400% OF SILVER ANNUAL PRODUCTION/2017
  4. RECORD SETTING EFP ISSUANCE FOR ANY MONTH IN SILVER; APRIL/2018/ 385.75 MILLIONOZ/  AND THE SECOND HIGHEST RECORDED EFP ISSUANCE JUNE 2018 345.43 MILLION OZ

AND YET, WITH THE EXTREMELY HIGH EFP ISSUANCE, WE HAVE A CONTINUAL LOW PRICE OF SILVER DESPITE THE ABOVE HUGE DEMAND.  TO ME THE ONLY ANSWER IS THAT WE HAVE SOVEREIGN  (CHINA) WHO IS ENDEAVOURING TO GOBBLE UP ALL AVAILABLE PHYSICAL SILVER NO MATTER WHERE, EXACTLY WHAT J.P.MORGAN IS DOING. AND IT IS MY BELIEF THAT J.P.MORGAN IS HOLDING ITS SILVER FOR ITS BENEFICIAL OWNER..THE USA GOVERNMENT WHO IN TURN IS HOLDING THAT SILVER FOR CHINA.(FOR A SILVER LOAN REPAYMENT).

IN GOLD, THE OPEN INTEREST ROSE BY A GOOD SIZED 2262 CONTRACTS UP TO 483,730 WITH THE STRONG GAIN IN THE COMEX GOLD PRICE/YESTERDAY’S TRADING (A RISE IN PRICE OF $5.75).  THE CME RELEASED THE DATA FOR EFP ISSUANCAND IT TOTALED A GOOD SIZED 6154 CONTRACTS:

AUGUST HAD AN ISSUANCE OF 0 CONTRACTS, OCTOBER HAD 0EFP’S ISSUED AND, DECEMBER HAD AN ISSUANCE OF 6471 CONTACTS  AND  ALL OTHER MONTHS ZERO.  The NEW COMEX OI for the gold complex rests at 483,730. ALSO REMEMBER THAT THERE WILL BE A DELAY IN THE ISSUANCE OF EFP’S.  THE BANKERS REMOVE LONG POSITIONS OF COMEX GOLD IMMEDIATELY.  THEN THEY ORCHESTRATE THEIR PRIVATE EFP DEAL WITH THE LONGS AND THAT COULD TAKE AN ADDITIONAL 48 HRS SO WE GENERALLY DO NOT GET A MATCH WITH RESPECT TO DEPARTING COMEX LONGS AND NEW EFP LONG TRANSFERS. . EVEN THOUGH THE BANKERS ISSUED THESE MONSTROUS EFPS, THE OBLIGATION STILL RESTS WITH THE BANKERS TO SUPPLY METAL BUT IT TRANSFERS THE RISK TO A LONDON BANKER OBLIGATION AND NOT A NEW YORK COMEX OBLIGATION. LONGS RECEIVE A FIAT BONUS TOGETHER WITH A LONG LONDON FORWARD. THUS, BY THESE ACTIONS, THE BANKERS AT THE COMEX HAVE JUST STATED THAT THEY HAVE NO APPRECIABLE METAL!! THIS IS A MASSIVE FRAUD: THEY CANNOT SUPPLY ANY METAL TO OUR COMEX LONGS BUT THEY ARE QUITE WILLING TO SUPPLY MASSIVE NON BACKED GOLD (AND SILVER) PAPER KNOWING THAT THEY HAVE NO METAL TO SATISFY OUR LONGS. LONDON IS NOW SEVERELY BACKWARD IN BOTH GOLD AND SILVER  AND WE ARE WITNESSING DELAYS IN ACTUAL DELIVERIES.

IN ESSENCE WE HAVE AN A VERY STRONG OI GAIN IN TOTAL CONTRACTS ON THE TWO EXCHANGES OF 8733 CONTRACTS:  2262  OI CONTRACTS INCREASED AT THE COMEX AND 6471 EFP OI CONTRACTS WHICH NAVIGATED OVER TO LONDON. THUS  TOTAL OI GAIN:  8733 CONTRACTS OR 873,300 OZ = 27.16 TONNES.  AND ALL OF THIS HUGE DEMAND OCCURRED WITH A SMALLISH GAIN IN THE PRICE OF GOLD/ YESTERDAY TO THE TUNE OF $5.75.???..

 

 

YESTERDAY, WE HAD 4594 EFP’S ISSUED.

ACCUMULATION OF EFP’S GOLD AT J.P. MORGAN’S HOUSE OF BRIBES: (EXCHANGE FOR PHYSICAL) FOR THE MONTH OF JUNE : 113,424 CONTRACTS OR 11,324,000 OZ OR 352.22 TONNES (16 TRADING DAYS AND THUS AVERAGING: 7089 EFP CONTRACTS PER TRADING DAY OR 708,900 OZ/ TRADING DAY),,

TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA AS TO THE HUGE SIZE OF THESE EFP TRANSFERS :  THIS MONTH IN 16 TRADING DAYS IN  TONNES: 352.22 TONNES

TOTAL ANNUAL GOLD PRODUCTION, 2017, THROUGHOUT THE WORLD EX CHINA EX RUSSIA: 2555 TONNES

THUS EFP TRANSFERS REPRESENTS 352.22/2550 x 100% TONNES =  13.81% OF GLOBAL ANNUAL PRODUCTION SO FAR IN JULY ALONE.***

ACCUMULATION OF GOLD EFP’S YEAR 2018 TO DATE:     5,071.51*  TONNES   *SURPASSED ANNUAL PROD’N

ACCUMULATION OF GOLD EFP’S FOR JANUARY 2018:           653.22  TONNES (21 TRADING DAYS)

ACCUMULATION OF GOLD EFP’S FOR FEBRUARY 2018:         649.45 TONNES  (20 TRADING DAYS)

ACCUMULATION OF GOLD EFP’S FOR MARCH 2018:             741.89 TONNES  (22 TRADING DAYS)

ACCUMULATION OF GOLD EFP’S FOR APRIL 2018:                 713.84 TONNES  (21 TRADING DAYS)

ACCUMULATION OF GOLD EFP’S FOR MAY 2018:                   693.80 TONNES ( 22 TRADING DAYS)

ACCUMULATION OF GOLD EFP FOR JUNE 2018                      650.71 TONNES  (21 TRADING DAYS)

ACCUMULATION OF GOLD EFP FOR JULY 2018                       605.5 TONNES     (21 TRADING DAYS)

WHAT IS ALARMING TO ME, ACCORDING TO OUR LONDON EXPERT ANDREW MAGUIRE IS THAT THESE EFP’S ARE BEING TRANSFERRED TO WHAT ARE CALLED SERIAL FORWARD CONTRACT OBLIGATIONS AND THESE CONTRACTS ARE LESS THAN 14 DAYS.  ANYTHING GREATER THAN 14 DAYS, THESE MUST BE RECORDED AND SENT TO THE COMPTROLLER, GREAT BRITAIN TO MONITOR RISK TO THE BANKING SYSTEM.  IF THIS IS INDEED TRUE, THEN THIS IS A MASSIVE CONSPIRACY TO DEFRAUD AS WE NOW WITNESS A MONSTROUS TOTAL EFP’S ISSUANCE AS IT HEADS INTO THE STRATOSPHERE

Result: A GOOD SIZED INCREASE IN OI AT THE COMEX OF 2262 WITH THE GOOD GAIN IN PRICING ($5.75 THAT GOLD UNDERTOOK YESTERDAY) // .  WE ALSO HAD A  GOOD SIZED NUMBER OF COMEX LONG TRANSFERRING TO LONDON THROUGH THE EFP ROUTE: 6471 CONTRACTS AS THESE HAVE ALREADY BEEN NEGOTIATED AND CONFIRMED.   THERE OBVIOUSLY DOES NOT SEEM TO BE MUCH PHYSICAL GOLD AT THE COMEX.  I GUESS IT EXPLAINS THE HUGE ISSUANCE OF EFP’S…THERE IS HARDLY ANY GOLD PRESENT AT THE GOLD COMEX FOR DELIVERY PURPOSES. IF YOU TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE 6471 EFP CONTRACTS ISSUED, WE HAD A VERY STRONG GAIN OF 8733 CONTRACTS IN TOTAL OPEN INTEREST  ON THE TWO EXCHANGES:

6471 CONTRACTS MOVE TO LONDON AND 2262 CONTRACTS INCREASED AT THE COMEX. (in tonnes, the GAIN in total oi equates to 27.16 TONNES). ..AND THIS VERY STRONG  DEMAND OCCURRED WITH THE SMALLISH GAIN OF $5.75 IN YESTERDAY’S TRADING AT THE COMEX!!!. ????

 

we had: 16 notice(s) filed upon for 1600 oz of gold at the comex.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

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

GLD…

WITH GOLD UP $3.45  TODAY: /

 

A NO CHANGES IN GOLD INVENTORY AT THE GLD:

 

 

/GLD INVENTORY 768.70 TONNES

Inventory rests tonight: 768.70 tonnes.

TO ALL INVESTORS THINKING OF BUYING GOLD THROUGH THE GLD ROUTE: YOU ARE MAKING A TERRIBLE MISTAKE AS THE CROOKS ARE USING WHATEVER GOLD COMES IN TO ATTACK BY SELLING THAT GOLD.  IT SURE SEEMS TO ME THAT THE GOLD OBLIGATIONS AT THE GLD EXCEED THEIR INVENTORY

SLV/

WITH SILVER DOWN 1  CENT TODAY

NO CHANGE IN SILVER INVENTORY AT THE SLV

/INVENTORY RESTS AT 329.104 MILLION OZ.

NOTE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE GLD AND SLV: THE CROOKS CAN RAID GOLD BECAUSE THEY DO HAVE SOME PHYSICAL.  THEY DO NOT RAID SILVER PROBABLY BECAUSE THERE IS NO REAL SILVER INVENTORIES BEHIND THEM.

Let us head over to the comex:

 

The total gold comex open interest ROSE BY A GOOD SIZED 2262 CONTRACTS UP to an OI level 483,730 WITH THE RISE IN THE PRICE OF GOLD ($5.75 GAIN/ YESTERDAY’S COMEX TRADING).   FOR TWO YEARS STRAIGHT WE HAVE NOTICED THAT ONE WEEK PRIOR TO FIRST DAY NOTICE OF AN ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH THE COMEX OPEN INTEREST CONTRACTS AND EFP’S NOTICES EXPONENTIALLY INCREASE AS WELL AS WE WITNESS THE COMEX OPEN INTEREST COLLAPSE. ONCE WE START A NEW MONTH, WE WILL NOW SEE THE OPEN INTEREST RISE AS THE CROOKS PLAY THEIR RIGGED GAME.

WE ARE NOW IN THE  ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH OF AUGUST.  THE CME REPORTS THAT THE BANKERS ISSUED A GOOD SIZED COMEX TRANSFER THROUGH THE EFP ROUTE AS THESE LONGS RECEIVED A DELIVERABLE LONDON FORWARD TOGETHER WITH A FIAT BONUS., THAT IS 6471 EFP CONTRACTS WERE ISSUED:

OCTOBER: 0 EFP’S AND DECEMBER:  6471 AND  ZERO FOR ALL OTHER MONTHS:

TOTAL EFP ISSUANCE:  6471 CONTRACTS.

THE OBLIGATION STILL RESTS WITH THE BANKERS ON THESE TRANSFERS. ALSO REMEMBER THAT THERE IS NO DOUBT A HUGE DELAY IN THE ISSUANCE OF EFP’S AND IT PROBABLY TAKES AT LEAST  48 HRS AFTER LONGS GIVE UP THEIR COMEX CONTRACTS FOR THEM TO RECEIVE THEIR EFP’S AS THEY ARE NEGOTIATING THIS CONTRACT WITH THE BANKS FOR A FIAT BONUS PLUS THEIR TRANSFER TO A LONDON BASED FORWARD.

ON A NET BASIS IN OPEN INTEREST WE GAINED THE FOLLOWING TODAY ON OUR TWO EXCHANGES: A GOOD  8733 TOTAL CONTRACTS IN THAT 6471 LONGS WERE TRANSFERRED AS FORWARDS TO LONDON AND WE GAINED 2262COMEX CONTRACTS.

NET GAIN ON THE TWO EXCHANGES:  8733 contracts OR 873,300  OZ OR 27.16 TONNES.

Result: A STRONG INCREASE IN COMEX OPEN INTEREST WITH THE GAIN IN PRICE/YESTERDAY (ENDING UP WITH THE GOOD GAIN IN PRICE OF $5.75). THE  TOTAL OPEN INTEREST GAIN ON THE TWO EXCHANGES:  8733 OI CONTRACTS..

We have now entered the active contract month of AUGUST where we witnessed the highest obliteration of contracts on record for the first day notice i.e. 33,938 contracts for an open interest standing of only 4,765 contracts. For the August contract month, we lost 27 contracts to stand at 210 contracts. The number of notices filed for yesterday was 29contracts so we gained 2 contacts or an additional 200 oz will stand at the comex as these investors refused to morph into London based forwards and receive a fiat bonus for their efforts.

 

 

AFTER AUGUST, SEPTEMBER LOST 162 CONTRACTS AND THUS FALLS TO  1943 CONTRACTS.

THE NEXT ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH IS  OCTOBER AND HERE THE OI LOST 477 CONTRACTS DOWN TO 56,913 CONTRACTS. DECEMBER SAW ITS OPEN INTEREST RISE BY 2478 CONTRACTS UP TO 364,8162.

WE HAD 16 NOTICES FILED AT THE COMEX FOR 1600 OZ.

INITIALLY FOR THE AUGUST 2017 CONTRACT WE HAD A STRONG 831,100 OZ STAND (25.85 TONNES)

BY MONTH END ONLY  524,500 OZ EVENTUALLY STOOD  (16.33 TONNES) AS MANY MORPHED INTO LONDON BASED FORWARDS.

ON AUGUST 22.2017:  1364 CONTRACTS WERE OPEN FOR THE UPCOMING SEPT CONTRACTS VS TODAY, AUG. 22.2018:  1943

 

 

Trading Volumes on the COMEX

PRELIMINARY COMEX VOLUME FOR TODAY: 223,455  contracts

 

CONFIRMED COMEX VOL. FOR YESTERDAY:  225,402 contracts

 

 

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

And now for the wild silver comex results.

Total silver OI ROSE BY A VERY STRONG SIZED 5583 CONTRACTS FROM 238,613 UP TO 244,196 (AND  A NEW RECORD OI FOR SILVER/AUGUST 22.2018.  (THE PREVIOUS RECORD WAS SET APRIL 9.2018/ 243,411 CONTRACTS) AND TODAY’S OI COMEX GAIN OCCURRED WITH A SMALLISH 12 CENT GAIN IN PRICING THAT SILVER UNDERTOOK YESTERDAY.

 

SINCE WE ARE NOW INTO THE NON – ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH OF AUGUST, WE WERE  INFORMED THAT WE HAD A  FAIR SIZED 571 EFP CONTRACTS: FOR AUGUST: 0 EFP CONTRACTS, FOR SEPT:  571 CONTRACTS  AND FOR DECEMBER: 0 CONTRACTS AND ZERO FOR ALL OTHER MONTHS.  THESE EFPS WERE ISSUED TO COMEX LONGS WHO RECEIVED A FIAT BONUS PLUS A DELIVERABLE PRODUCT OVER IN LONDON.  THE TOTAL EFP’S ISSUED: 571.  ON A NET BASIS WE GAINED 6154 SILVER OPEN INTEREST CONTRACTS AS WE OBTAINED 5583 CONTRACT GAIN AT THE COMEX COMBINING WITH THE ADDITION OF 571 OI CONTRACTS NAVIGATING OVER TO LONDON.

NET GAIN ON THE TWO EXCHANGES:  6154 CONTRACTS.

 

.

FOR THE FRONT MONTH OF AUGUST WE HAD A NET LOSS OF 16 CONTRACTS DOWN T0 22 CONTRACTS. WE HAD 16 NOTICES FILED YESTERDAY SO WE GAINED 0  CONTRACTS STANDING OR AN ADDITIONAL NIL OZ WILL STAND AT THE COMEX AS THESE GUYS AGAIN REFUSED TO MORPH INTO LONDON BASED FORWARDS AND RECEIVE A FIAT BONUS.  QUEUE JUMPING AT THE SILVER COMEX IS THE NORM AS THERE IS CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF PHYSICAL LOCATED HERE.  THERE IS LITTLE QUEUE JUMPING AT THE GOLD COMEX FOR THE SIMPLE REASON THAT THERE IS HARDLY ANY GOLD THERE.

 

 

 

The next active delivery month after August for silver is September and here the OI FELL by 8970 contracts DOWN to 110,373.  October PICKED UP 46 contracts to stand at 276

After October, the next big delivery month is December and here the OI rose by 14,336 contracts up to 118,028 contracts.

We had notice(s) filed for NIL OZ for the AUGUST 2018 COMEX contract for silver

 

AND NOW COMPARISON VS AUGUST LAST YR:

 

ON FIRST DAY NOTICE JULY 31/2017:  1,965,000 OZ STOOD FOR DELIVERY

THE FINAL AMOUNT OF SILVER STANDING:  AUGUST 30.2017: 6,245,000 OZ AS WE HAD CONSIDERABLE QUEUE JUMPING.

FOR THOSE THAT WISH TO FOLLOW TODAY’S SILVER OI VS LAST YR

AUGUST 22.2017: 80,314 OPEN INTEREST CONTACTS STILL OPEN FOR THE UPCOMING SEPT ACTIVE CONTRACT MONTH VS TODAY AUG 22.2018:  110,373 CONTRACTS.(DEMAND REMAINS EXTREMELY STRONG DESPITE THE LOWER PRICE)

 

 

 

 

INITIAL standings for AUGUST/GOLD

AUGUST 22-/2018.

 

today we have a tiny pulse at  the comex and still  zero gold enters the comex

THIS IS RATHER SURPRISING:  FOR THE SECOND STRAIGHT BIG DELIVERY MONTHS 
I.E. JUNE AND AUGUST, NO GOLD ENTERS THE COMEX TO SETTLE UPON LONGS STANDING FOR DELIVERY AND NO ACTIVITY WHATSOEVER WITH RESPECT TO INVENTORY CHANGES.
we had 0 kilobar transaction/
We had 0 inventory movement at the dealer accounts
total inventory deposit into the dealer accounts:  NIL  oz
total inventory withdrawals out of dealer accounts; nil oz
we had 0 withdrawal out of the customer account:
total customer withdrawals:  nil oz
we had 0 customer deposit
total customer deposits: nil oz
we had 1 adjustment
i) out of JPMorgan:  2,175.034 oz was adjusted out of the dealer account and this moved into the customer account of jPmorgan and generally this is a settlement

For AUGUST:

Today, 0 notice(s) were issued from JPMorgan dealer account and 0 notices were issued from their client or customer account. The total of all issuance by all participants equates to 16 contract(s) of which 0 notices were stopped (received) by j.P. Morgan dealer and 8 notice(s) was (were) stopped/ Received) by j.P.Morgan customer account.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
To calculate the INITIAL total number of gold ounces standing for the AUGUST. contract month, we take the total number of notices filed so far for the month (2286) x 100 oz or 228,600 oz, to which we add the difference between the open interest for the front month of AUGUST. (210 contracts) minus the number of notices served upon today (16 x 100 oz per contract) equals 248,000 OZ OR 7.713 TONNES) the number of ounces standing in this non active month of AUGUST

 

Thus the INITIAL standings for gold for the AUGUST contract month:

No of notices served (2286 x 100 oz)  + {(210)OI for the front month minus the number of notices served upon today (16 x 100 oz )which equals 248,000 oz standing OR 7.713 TONNES in this  active delivery month of AUGUST.

WE GAINED 2 COMEX CONTRACTS OR AN ADDITIONAL 200 OZ WILL STAND AS THESE GUYS REFUSED TO

MORPH INTO LONDON BASED FORWARDS.

 

 

 

THERE ARE ONLY 8.793 TONNES OF REGISTERED COMEX GOLD AVAILABLE FOR DELIVERY AGAINST 7.713 TONNES STANDING FOR AUGUST  

 

total registered or dealer gold:  282,724.026 oz or   8.793 tonnes
total registered and eligible (customer) gold;   8,476,117.084 oz 263,.64 tonnes

IN THE LAST 24 MONTHS 91 NET TONNES HAS LEFT THE COMEX.

end

And now for silver

AND NOW THE AUGUST DELIVERY MONTH

AUGUST INITIAL standings/SILVER

we had 0 inventory movement at the dealer side of things

 

total dealer deposits: nil oz

total dealer withdrawals: nil oz

we had 0 deposit into the customer account

i) Into JPMorgan: nil oz

*** JPMorgan for most of 2017 and in 2018 has adding to its inventory almost every single day.

JPMorgan now has 145.4 million oz of  total silver inventory or 50.8% of all official comex silver. (145 million/286 million)

 

 

ii) Into everybody else:  nil oz

 

 

 

 

 

total customer deposits today: nil oz

we had  3 withdrawals from the customer account;

i) Out of  Int – Delaware:  25,178.570 oz

ii) out of Brinks:  39,659.520 oz

iii) Out of CNT:  29,749.825 oz

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

total withdrawals: 94,587.915 oz

we had 0  adjustment

 

 

 

 

 

total dealer silver:  82.761 million

total dealer + customer silver:  289.395 million oz

The total number of notices filed today for the AUGUST. contract month is represented by 0 contract(s) FOR NIL oz. To calculate the number of silver ounces that will stand for delivery in AUGUST., we take the total number of notices filed for the month so far at 1178 x 5,000 oz = 5,890,000 oz to which we add the difference between the open interest for the front month of AUGUST. (22) and the number of notices served upon today (0 x 5000 oz) equals the number of ounces standing.

.

Thus the INITIAL standings for silver for the AUGUST/2018 contract month: 1178(notices served so far)x 5000 oz + OI for front month of AUGUST(22) -number of notices served upon today (0)x 5000 oz equals 6,000,000 oz of silver standing for the AUGUST contract month

WE GAINED 0 CONTRACTS OR AN ADDITIONAL NIL OZ WILL STAND FOR DELIVERY AT THE COMEX AND THESE GUYS REFUSED TO MORPH INTO A LONDON BASED FORWARDS AND THUS THEY WILL NOT TAKE THE FIAT BONUS.

 

 

 

 

 

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

ESTIMATED VOLUME FOR TODAY:  130,388CONTRACTS

 

 

CONFIRMED VOLUME FOR YESTERDAY: 96,086 CONTRACTS

 

YESTERDAY’S CONFIRMED VOLUME OF 96,086 CONTRACTS EQUATES TO 480- million OZ  OR 68.6% OF ANNUAL GLOBAL PRODUCTION OF SILVER

COMMODITY LAW SUGGESTS THAT OPEN INTEREST SHOULD NOT BE MORE THAN 3% OF ANNUAL GLOBAL PRODUCTION. THE CROOKS ARE SUPPLYING MASSIVE PAPER TRYING TO KEEP SILVER IN CHECK.

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
