If There Isn’t A Problem in Comex’s Silver and Gold Markets, Why So Much Paper?
Great and Wonderful Christmas Eve Everybody!
Gold is still gaining dollars with the trade at $1,493.90 up $5.20 after touching $1,496.90 before the pullback with the low at $1,488.10. Silver is up as well with the trade at $17.65, up 15.1 cents after hitting a high of $17.715 with the low at $17.425. The US Dollar is as stagnant as can be with the value pegged at 97.31, up 7.5 points, coming off the high of 97.39 with the low at 97.255. Of course, all of this has already happened before 5 am pst, the Comex open, the London close, and still before those 2 articles of impeachment are turned in for review by Pelosi, the outspoken withholder of truth.
In Venezuela, Gold gained another 75.91 Bolivar with the price now at 14,920.33 Bolivar with Silver gaining another 2.695 with the price at 176.279 Bolivar. In Argentina, Gold is now valued at 89,552.02 Pesos, proving a gain of 741.52 Pesos (x100 Ounce contract) with Silver now at 1,057.30 Pesos proving a gain of 18.80 Pesos (x 5,000 ounces per contract). In Turkey, Golds price is now at 8,891.24 Lira providing a gain of 54.04 T-Lira with Silver gaining 1.707 Lira with the price at 105.045 T-Lira. Not bad at all for a partial trading day.
The sellers of December Silver still seem reluctant as the delivery price gained another 11.2 cents with the trade at $17.515 and with a Volume of 3 up on the board with a trading range between $17.52 and $17.515. Silver’s delivery count dropped 191 obligations during yesterday’s trade leaving 197 fully paid for contracts waiting to get receipts or to deliver these pieces of EFP paper over to the City of London. Will our Resolute be buying more today? Stay tooned! The reason we ask this is because yesterday the Volume jumped from 2 to 23 with the last price at $17.41, in a way putting an exclamation point directly on the reluctant ones!
Silver’s Overall Open Interest is still gaining, even though most people are not trading during the holidays the algos are, with the total count now at 217,131 Overnighters proving an additional 6,068 pieces of paper had to be added on Monday in order to stay the price and keep it from exploding sharply higher. We are only 27,065 papered contracts away from breaking another new all-time high in paper over Silver! Maybe we’ll see it break through that paper barrier once again by next Monday, what can go wrong? Still, the question remains the same; if there isn’t a problem at the Comex, why so much paper?
Take a look at Gold’s All Time High in Paper Contracts at 734,509 Overnighters! This happened yesterday as well while the price traded higher. Where would the real price of Silver and Gold be if the regulators actually regulated the amount of paper used to control the price? We all know the response; the answers will come when the last bars are gone.
From all of us to all of you … We wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Very Happy Hanukkah.
