sept 23

Tonight, I am just going to provide the comex data for you:

 

I will continue with my regular commentary tomorrow

 

 

Gold closed tonight at 1131.60 up $6.60

Silver closed up 3 cents at $14.78

The total gold comex open interest rose from 417,583 up to 419,304  for a gain of 3624 contracts as gold was down $8.10 with respect to yesterday’s trading.   For the past two years, we have strangely witnessed two interesting developments with respect to the gold open interest:  1) total gold comex collapse in OI as we enter an active delivery month, and 2) a continual drop in the amount of gold standing in an active month, and today the latter continued with its decline as gold ounces standing rose. We now enter the delivery month of September and here the OI fell by 12 contracts down to 70 . We had 0 notices filed yesterday so we  lost 12 gold contracts or an additional 1200 oz will not stand for delivery in this non active month of September. The next active delivery month is October and here the OI fell by 174 contracts down to 20,098. The big December contract saw it’s OI rise by 1188 contracts from 283,672 up to 284,860. The estimated volume on today (which is just comex sales during regular business hours of 8:20 until 1:30 pm est) was estimated at 92,524 which is poor. The confirmed volume on yesterday (which includes the volume during regular business hours + access market sales the previous day was poor at 131,912 contracts.
Today we had 0 notices filed for nil oz.
And now for the wild silver comex results. Silver OI fell by 1927 contracts from 154,067 down to 152,140 as silver was down by 47 cents with respect to yesterday’s price . As mentioned above we always have a huge contraction in the OI of an upcoming active precious metal month. The bankers continue to pull their hair out trying to extricate themselves  from their silver mess (the continued high silver OI with it’s extremely low price, combined with the banker’s massive physical shortfall) as the world senses something is brewing in the silver arena  We are now in the active delivery month of September. Here the OI fell by 13 contracts to 219. We had 0 notices filed yesterday, so we lost 13 silver contract or an additional 65,000 oz  will not stand for delivery in this active delivery month of September.
The big December contract saw its OI fall by 2658 contracts down to 115,958.  The estimated volume today was estimated at 25,700 contracts (just comex sales during regular business hours) which is poor.  The confirmed volume yesterday (regular plus access market) came in at 49,298 contracts which is excellent in volume.
We had 0 notices filed for nil oz.

 JPMorgan has a total of 10,777.279 oz or.3352 tonnes in its dealer or registered account.
JPMorgan now has 741,559.509 oz or 23.06 tonnes in its customer account.
.
Today, 0 notices was 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 0 contracts of which 0 notices were stopped (received) by JPMorgan dealer and 0 notices were stopped (received) by JPMorgan customer account.
 
To calculate the final total number of gold ounces standing for the August contract month, we take the total number of notices filed so far for the month (24) x 100 oz  or 2000 oz , to which we  add the difference between the open interest for the front month of September (70 contracts) minus the number of notices served upon today (0) x 100 oz   x 100 oz per contract equals the number of ounces standing.
 
Thus the initial standings for gold for the September contract month:
No of notices served so far (24) x 100 oz  or ounces + {OI for the front month (70)– the number of  notices served upon today (0) x 100 oz which equals 9,400 oz  standing  in this month of Sept (0.2932 tonnes of gold).
we lost 1200 gold ounces standing in this non active delivery month of September.
Total dealer inventory 162,034.084 or 5.0399 tonnes
Total gold inventory (dealer and customer) =6,862,280.335 or 213.44  tonnes)
Several months ago the comex had 303 tonnes of total gold. Today the total inventory rests at 213.44 tonnes for a loss of 90 tonnes over that period.
 
 the comex continues to bleed gold

Thus the initial standings for silver for the September contract month:
1214 (notices served so far)x 5000 oz +( 219) { OI for front month of September ) -number of notices served upon today (6} x 5000 oz ,=7,135,000 oz of silver standing for the September contract month.
we lost 13 contracts or an additional 65,000 oz will not stand in this active month of September.

The two ETF’s that I follow are the GLD and SLV. You must be very careful in trading these vehicles as these funds do not have any beneficial gold or silver behind them. They probably have only paper claims and when the dust settles, on a collapse, there will be countless class action lawsuits trying to recover your lost investment.There is now evidence that the GLD and SLV are paper settling on the comex.***I do not think that the GLD will head to zero as we still have some GLD shareholders who think that gold is the right vehicle to be in even though they do not understand the difference between paper gold and physical gold. I can visualize demand coming to the buyers side:i) demand from paper gold shareholders ii) demand from the bankers who then redeem for gold to send this gold onto China
And now the Gold inventory at the GLD:
Sept 23.2015: we gained a rather large 1.79 tonnes of gold into the GLD/Inventory rests tonight at 676.40
