(/NOW SWITCHING TO GOLD) FOR NEWCOMERS, HERE ARE THE DETAILS
SPREADING LIQUIDATION HAS NOW COMMENCED AS WE HEAD TOWARDS THE NEW NON ACTIVE FRONT MONTH OF NOV. WE ARE NOW INTO THE SPREADING OPERATION OF BOTH SILVER AND GOLD (WILL BE SMALL AS SPREADERS DO NOT PAY ATTENTION TO NOVEMBER)
HERE IS A BRIEF SYNOPSIS OF HOW THE CROOKS FLEECE UNSUSPECTING LONGS IN THE SPREADING ENDEAVOUR ;MODUS OPERANDI OF THE CORRUPT BANKERS AS TO HOW THEY HANDLE THEIR SPREAD OPEN INTERESTS:HERE IS HOW THE CROOKS USED SPREADING AS WE ARE NOW INTO THE NON ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH OF OCT HEADING TOWARDS THE NON ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH OF NOV., FOR BOTH GOLD AND SILVER:
YOU WILL ALSO NOTICE THAT THE COMEX OPEN INTEREST STARTS TO RISE BUT SO IS THE OPEN INTEREST OF SPREADERS. THE OPEN INTEREST IN WILL CONTINUE TO RISE UNTIL ONE WEEK BEFORE FIRST DAY NOTICE OF AN UPCOMING ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH (NOV), AND THAT IS WHEN THE CROOKS SELL THEIR SPREAD POSITIONS BUT NOT AT THE SAME TIME OF THE DAY. THEY WILL USE THE SELL SIDE OF THE EQUATION TO CREATE THE CASCADE (ALONG WITH THEIR COLLUSIVE FRIENDS) AND THEN COVER ON THE BUY SIDE OF THE SPREAD SITUATION AT THE END OF THE DAY. THEY DO THIS TO AVOID POSITION LIMIT DETECTION. THE LIQUIDATION OF THE SPREADING FORMATION CONTINUES FOR EXACTLY ONE WEEK AND ENDS ON FIRST DAY NOTICE.”
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.
First, here is an outline of what will be discussed tonight:
1.Today, we had the open interest at the comex, in SILVER, FELL BY A GIGANTIC SIZED 3418 CONTRACTS OI TO 125,832 AND CLOSER TO OUR COMEX HIGH RECORD //244,710(SET FEB 25/2020). THE LAST RECORDS WERE SET IN AUG.2018 AT 244,196 WITH A SILVER PRICE OF $14.78/(AUGUST 22/2018)..THE PREVIOUS RECORD TO THAT WAS SET ON APRIL 9/2018 AT 243,411 OPEN INTEREST CONTRACTS WITH THE SILVER PRICE AT THAT DAY: $16.53). AND PREVIOUS TO THAT, THE RECORD WAS ESTABLISHED AT: 234,787 CONTRACTS, SET ON APRIL 21.2017 OVER 5 YEARS AGO.
EFP ISSUANCE 1463 CONTRACTS
OUR CUSTOMARY MIGRATION OF COMEX LONGS CONTINUE TO MORPH INTO LONDON FORWARDS AS OUR BANKERS USED THEIR EMERGENCY PROCEDURE TO ISSUE:
MAR 1463 and ALL OTHER MONTHS: ZERO. TOTAL EFP ISSUANCE: 1463 CONTRACTS. EFP’S GIVE OUR COMEX LONGS A FIAT BONUS PLUS A DELIVERABLE PRODUCT OVER IN LONDON. IF WE TAKE THE COMEX OI GAIN OF 3418 CONTRACTS AND ADD TO THE 1463 OI TRANSFERRED TO LONDON THROUGH EFP’S,
WE OBTAIN A HUGE SIZED GAIN OF 4881 OPEN INTEREST CONTRACTS FROM OUR TWO EXCHANGES.
THUS IN OUNCES, THE GAIN ON THE TWO EXCHANGES 24.575 MILLION OZ//
OCCURRED WITH OUR GAIN IN PRICE OF $1.08….. OUR SPEC SHORTS HAVE NOWHERE TO HIDE!

LET US BEGIN:
THE TOTAL COMEX GOLD OPEN INTEREST ROSE BY A POWERFUL SIZED 12,419 CONTRACTS UP TO 441,702 WITH THE RISE IN PRICE..$53.00
EXCHANGE FOR PHYSICAL ISSUANCE
WE ARE NOW IN THE -ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH OF DEC… THE CME REPORTS THAT THE BANKERS ISSUED A STRONG SIZED TRANSFER THROUGH THE EFP ROUTE AS THESE LONGS RECEIVED A DELIVERABLE LONDON FORWARD TOGETHER WITH A FIAT BONUS.,
THAT IS 3026 EFP CONTRACTS WERE ISSUED: ;: , . 0 FEB: 3026 & ZERO FOR ALL OTHER MONTHS:
TOTAL EFP ISSUANCE: CONTRACTS
WHEN WE HAVE BACKWARDATION, EFP ISSUANCE IS VERY COSTLY BUT THE REAL PROBLEM IS THE SCARCITY OF METAL AND IT IS FAR BETTER FOR OUR BANKERS TO PAY OFF INDIVIDUALS THAN RISK INVESTORS ESPECIALLY FROM LONDON STANDING FOR DELIVERY. THE LOWER PRICES IN THE FUTURES MARKET IS A MAGNET FOR OUR LONDONERS SEEKING PHYSICAL METAL. BACKWARDATION ALWAYS EQUAL SCARCITY OF METAL!
ON A NET BASIS IN OPEN INTEREST WE GAINED THE FOLLOWING TODAY ON OUR TWO EXCHANGES: A GIGANTIC SIZED TOTAL OF 15,455 CONTRACTS IN THAT 3025 LONGS WERE TRANSFERRED AS FORWARDS TO LONDON AND WE HAD A HUGE SIZED COMEX OI GAIN OF 12,664 CONTRACTS..AND THIS GIGANTIC SIZED GAIN ON OUR TWO EXCHANGES HAPPENED WITH OUR GAIN IN PRICE OF GOLD $53.00. WE ARE WITNESSING ZERO SPEC SHORTS COVERINGS OF THEIR SHORTFALL. BANKERS CONTINUE AS NET BUYERS OF COMEX GOLD CONTRACTS AS THEY HAVE BEEN NET LONG FOR THE PAST FEW MONTHS. WE ALSO HAD HUGE ADDITIONAL NEWBIE SPECS GOING LONG AS THE PRICE ROSE. IT LOOKS LIKE OUR SPEC SHORTS ARE IN DEEP TROUBLE AS THEY CANNOT GET OUT OF THEIR MASSIVE SHORTFALL.
// WE HAVE A STRONG AMOUNT OF GOLD TONNAGE STANDING DEC (53.972)

CALCULATIONS FOR THE AMOUNT OF GOLD STANDING FOR NOVEMBER.
For the front month of DECEMBER we have an oi of 58,549 contracts having LOST 5250 contracts
We had 5308 contracts served on Thursday, so we gained 58 contracts. We will gain in gold tonnage from this day forth.
The comex is running out of physical gold to serve our good friends over in London
JANUARY LOST 18 contracts to stand at 1562
February gained 17,286 contacts up to 377,365
We had 425 notice(s) filed today for 42,500 oz
Today, 0 notice(s) were issued from J.P.Morgan dealer account and 0 notices were issued from their client or customer account. The total of all issuance by all participants equate to 425 contract(s) of which 0 notices were stopped (received) by j.P. Morgan dealer and 289 notice(s) was (were) stopped/ Received) by J.P.Morgan//customer account and 0 notice(s) received (stopped) by the squid (Goldman Sachs)
To calculate the INITIAL total number of gold ounces standing for the DEC. /2022. contract month,
we take the total number of notices filed so far for the month (11,928x 100 oz , to which we add the difference between the open interest for the front month of (DEC. 5849 CONTRACTS) minus the number of notices served upon today 425 x 100 oz per contract equals 1,735,600 OZ OR 53.984 TONNES the number of TONNES standing in this active month of DEC.
thus the INITIAL standings for gold for the DEC contract month:
No of notices filed so far (11,928 x 100 oz+ (5849 OI for the front month minus the number of notices served upon today (425} x 100 oz} which equals 1,735,200 oz standing OR 53.972 TONNES in this active delivery month of DEC..

CALCULATION OF SILVER OZ STANDING FOR SEPT
silver open interest data:
FRONT MONTH OF DEC OI: 2477 CONTRACTS HAVING LOST 345 CONTRACT(S.)
WE HAD 498 NOTICES FILED ON THURSDAY. SO WE GAINED 153 CONTRACTS OR 765,000 oz
JANUARY SAW A GAIN OF 156 CONTRACTS UP TO 2118 CONTACTS.
FEB> GAINED ONE CONTRACT TO 28
TOTAL NUMBER OF NOTICES FILED FOR TODAY:372 for 1,860,000 oz
Comex volumes:71,697// est. volume today// good
Comex volume: confirmed yesterday: 67,365 contracts ( good)
To calculate the number of silver ounces that will stand for delivery in DEC. we take the total number of notices filed for the month so far at 2885 x 5,000 oz = 14,425,000 oz
to which we add the difference between the open interest for the front month of DEC( 2477) and the number of notices served upon today 372 x (5000 oz) equals the number of ounces standing.
Thus the standings for silver for the DEC./2022 contract month: 2885(notices served so far) x 5000 oz + OI for front month of DEC (2447) – number of notices served upon today (372)x 50070 oz of silver standing for the DEC. contract month equates 24.950 million oz. We will gain in silver oz standing from this day forth. Also we had another criminal element to our silver oz standing: an addition of 500 EFR contract transfers which are “Exchange for risk” settlements. I do not want to bore you but needless to say they are not physical transfers so are criminal in nature.
the record level of silver open interest is 234,787 contracts set on April 21./2017 with the price on that day at $18.42. The previous record was 224,540 contracts with the price at that time of $20.44
Comex volumes:72,730// est. volume today// good
Comex volume: confirmed yesterday: 125,798 contracts ( huge)

Kyiv’s Mayor Urges Residents To Stock Up On Food & Water As Temperature Plummets
FRIDAY, DEC 02, 2022 – 11:15 AM
Kyiv’s mayor is warning residents that there’s real potential of a total blackout across the capital city of about three million people. This as Ukraine braces for more expected Russian airstrikes on its national energy infrastructure.
“The temperature in the apartments may not differ much from the outside temperature,” Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko announced at a local security forum at a moment when temperatures have dipped below freezing, or -4 degrees Celsius (25 degrees Fahrenheit). “I appeal to the people…to have a supply of technical water, drinking water, durable food products, warm clothing,” he emphasized.
Authorities have scrambled to set up warming centers in various hard-hit cities across the country, also warning that some portions of cities may have to evacuate if the energy crisis worsens. Despite utility crews scrambling, an estimated 40% of the entire national energy infrastructure remains degraded or destroyed.
Klitschko in his appeal told people that they must consider moving in with family or friends who have remained less impacted by the power cuts on the outskirts of Kyiv.
The Kremlin has meanwhile defended its strategy of targeting Ukrainian energy as “legitimate”. According to a New York Times update:
As Ukrainian officials warned that Moscow was preparing to launch yet another wave of missile strikes aimed at destroying the nation’s energy grid, Russia’s foreign minister on Thursday defended Moscow’s attacks, calling infrastructure a legitimate military target despite warnings by the United Nations that they could amount to war crimes.
Sergei V. Lavrov, Russia’s foreign minister, spoke at a news conference hours after Ukrainian officials said that Russian attacks had disabled the power grid in the southern city of Kherson and six million people across the country were still without power after previous assaults.
Drawing on familiar Kremlin themes framing the Ukraine war as a battle with the West, Mr. Lavrov said that Russia is hitting targets that are used to replenish Ukrainian forces with weapons provided by Western nations and that the Ukrainian forces rely on to operate. He did not elaborate.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken during a meeting of NATO ministers in Bucharest, Romania condemned the “barbaric” Russian actions.
“As Ukraine continues to seize momentum on the battlefield, President Putin continues to focus his ire and his fire on Ukraine’s civilian population,” he said. “Heat, water, electricity — for the children, for the elderly, for the sick — these are President Putin’s new targets. He’s hitting them hard. This brutalization of Ukraine’s people is barbaric.”
Lebanon Pushed Into Deeper Crisis As Parliament Again Fails To Elect President
FRIDAY, DEC 02, 2022 – 03:35 AM
The Lebanese parliament on Thursday failed for the eighth consecutive time to elect a new president, as a majority of lawmakers continue to oppose the options laid on the table.
During the first round of voting on Thursday, 111 votes were cast in the 128-seat parliament, with 52 lawmakers casting blank votes, while 37 voted in support of Michel Moawad, the son of the late president René Moawad.Via picture alliance/AP
The 37 votes cast for Moawad are a drop from last week’s session, when 42 lawmakers voted for the candidate who is backed by the anti-Hezbollah bloc made up of the Lebanese Forces (LF) party, the Progressive Socialist Party (PSP), the Kataeb party, and a few ‘independent’ lawmakers.
Some lawmakers even wrote in mock choices on their ballots, with one vote cast for Brazil’s socialist president-elect Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. Following the voting session, Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri announced that a ninth attempt to elect a president will take place next week.
The Lebanese presidency, which has been reserved for the country’s Christian Maronite sect since the National Pact of 1943, has remained empty since the end of Michel Aoun’s term in September after six years in power.
Hezbollah’s ‘Loyalty to the Resistance’ party, along with its allies in the Amal Movement and the Free Patriotic Movement (FPM) all oppose Moawad’s candidacy. Hezbollah’s lawmakers, specifically, have maintained that their preferred candidate for the presidency is the leader of the Marada Movement, Suleiman Frangieh.
The pro-resistance bloc has also been calling for dialogue to elect a “consensual president” among all political sides. However, US and Saudi-backed parties like the LF have opposed this. Christian political leader Samir Geagea said earlier this week that “dialogue with [Hezbollah and its allies] is a waste of time.”
In response to this divisive stance, PSP leader Walid Jumblat called Geagea’s remarks “absurd” and said that “talking to all parties is necessary to elect a new president.”
According to Article 49 of the Lebanese constitution, a presidential candidate is elected either by winning a two-thirds majority of parliament on the first ballot – 86 members, the same number required for a legal quorum – or by a simple majority of 65 votes in subsequent rounds.
So far, no candidate has been able to secure the support of enough lawmakers, in either the first or subsequent rounds of voting. Former president Aoun’s own election in 2016 came after a more than two-year vacancy at the presidential palace, as lawmakers made 45 failed attempts before reaching a consensus on his candidacy.
Further muddying the waters, the US, France, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia have all expressed their desire to see the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) commander, Joseph Aoun, be named as Lebanon’s new president. Since 2019, the Levantine nation has been shouldering what the World Bank describes as the world’s worst economic crisis in the past 150 years, caused by rampant corruption in the financial sector.
A prolonged power vacuum would only exacerbate the situation, as Beirut is currently unable to enact sweeping reforms demanded by international lenders as a condition for releasing billions of dollars in loans.
At a forum organized on 4 November at the Wilson Center, US Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, Barbara Leaf, warned that the current situation in Lebanon could lead to a “complete disintegration of the state and the collapse of its security forces.”
Leaf added that, as the crisis becomes more unbearable, she expects Lebanese lawmakers to pack their bags and leave for Europe, abandoning the country as “unsalvageable.” “We are putting pressure on political leaders to do their job, but nothing is as effective as popular pressure. Sooner or later, people will rise again,” Leaf pointed out.
She added that collapse will enable Lebanon “somehow to be rebuilt from the ashes, freed from the curse of Hezbollah.” The US official concluded that the US and Saudi Arabia share the same vision for Lebanon, and are cooperating to achieve it.
Russia Now Says US & NATO “Directly Participating” In Ukraine War
FRIDAY, DEC 02, 2022 – 09:05 PM
Earlier this week CNN reported that the Biden administration is considering “dramatically” increasing its training of Ukrainian forces. The proposal would involve US advisers training “much larger groups of Ukrainian soldiers in more sophisticated battlefield tactics” at American installations in Germany, and possibly other locations in Europe. This could involve as many as 2,500 Ukrainian soldiers trained by US advisers a month, which over a half-year period would total 15,000 going through the proposed ramped-up US program.
This report and others, which have also detailed expanding military training programs for Ukrainians in Europe overseen by UK and other NATO-member militaries, has prompted a Friday response from the Kremlin. Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov alleged Thursday that the US and NATO are now directly participating in the Ukraine war.
“You shouldn’t say that the US and NATO aren’t taking part in this war. You are directly participating in it,” Lavrov told a press briefing.
“And not just by providing weapons but also by training personnel. You are training their military on your territory, on the territories of Britain, Germany, Italy, and other countries,” he pointed out.
He reiterated prior Kremlin statements underscoring that war between nuclear powers is “unacceptable” but while highlighting that growing US-NATO involvement greatly heightens this risk.
“Even if someone plans to start it by conventional means, the risk of escalation into a nuclear war will be enormous,” Lavrov added.
Lavrov’s comments are hugely significant given up to this point Moscow slammed what it called “indirect” American involvement. Russian officials spoke of the growing proxy war nature of the conflict. But now it appears the Kremlin sees that there’s been an escalation to direct NATO involvement.
Meanwhile the ongoing British program at multiple UK bases continues to be large in size. The UK’s own infantry program for Ukraine forces has a stated goal of training at least 10,000 Ukrainian troops.
It remains that the Kremlin has warned repeatedly against such deepening Western involvement, which clearly is now going far beyond just weapons shipments. Russia this week walked away from New START nuclear arms reduction treaty negotiations with the US while citing its growing involvement in backing Kiev as a major reason for halting resumption of talks.
Putin Tells Scholz More Ukraine Energy Strikes ‘Inevitable’ Due To West Pumping In Weapons
FRIDAY, DEC 02, 2022 – 08:25 PM
Ukraine is bracing for further stepped-up Russian airstrikes targeting its energy infrastructure, with President Vladimir Putin on Friday confirming the next wave is imminent, telling his German counterpart Olaf Scholz that new attacks are “inevitable” due to the West’s “destructive” policies.
“It was noted that the Russian Armed Forces had long refrained from precision missile strikes against certain targets on the territory of Ukraine,” a Kremlin readout of the telephone call begins. “But now such measures have become a forced and inevitable response to Kyiv’s provocative attacks on Russia’s civilian infrastructure.”
The statement emphasizes NATO’s weapons pipeline into Kiev: “Attention was drawn to the destructive line of Western states, including Germany, that are pumping the Kyiv regime with weapons, and are training the Ukrainian military.”
Putin reminded Scholz of the West’s deep “political and financial support” which has made the potential for any meaningful ceasefire negotiations impossible, from Moscow’s perspective. He said constant and largescale military support from allies “leads to the fact that Kyiv completely rejects the idea of any negotiations.”
Meanwhile, there appears to be external verification that the next significant aerial attack on Ukraine is coming soon, with Sky News Australia citing military analysts who say new satellite images show Russia is planning an ‘imminent’ large scale missile strike on Ukraine.
According to details in the report:
Satellite images released by US-based Maxar Technologies show a build-up of two dozen Tu-95 and Tu-160 long-range bombers at Engels-2 air base in Saratov Oblast, 700km from the Russia-Ukrainian border.
Pictured beside the aircraft are ammunition boxes, which experts say are likely to contain Kh-55 and Kh-101 cruise missiles, with the significant increase in activity suggesting a looming attack.
Additionally, Der Spiegel quotes military analyst Arda Mevlutoğlu as follows: “The unusually high number of bombers on the tarmac is an indication of an increase in operations, if not an imminent large-scale attack.”
Despite Ukrainian utility and emergency crews continuing to scramble, it remains that an estimated 40% of the entire national energy infrastructure remains degraded or destroyed. The New York Times reported this week, “Ukrainian officials said that Russian attacks had disabled the power grid in the southern city of Kherson and six million people across the country were still without power after previous assaults.”
Temperatures have also remained below freezing, and are expected to dip further into the frigid winter months. Russia has defended its attacks on the energy grid as “legitimate”, while US Secretary of State Antony Blinken during a meeting of NATO ministers in Bucharest, Romania condemned the “barbaric” Russian actions.

Rand Paul: Fauci Caused 7 Million People To Die; “We’ve Caught Him Red-Handed, He Won’t Get Away”
FRIDAY, DEC 02, 2022 – 03:23 PM
Senator Rand Paul asserted Thursday that Anthony Fauci is directly responsible for funding dangerous research that likely killed millions of people, and that he “won’t get away.”
“Likely there is no public health figure who has made a greater error in judgement than Dr Fauci,” Paul declared in a Fox News appearance, adding “the error of judgement was to fund gain of function research in a totalitarian country.”
Fauci funded “research that allowed them to create super viruses, that in all likelihood leaked into the public and caused seven million people to die,” Paul declared.
“This is right up there with decisions, some of them malevolent or military to kill millions of people,” The Senator further urged.
The Senator made the comments after Fauci appeared in a fawning Washington Post interview, where he was labeled a “hero,” complained about being a victim, and couldn’t think of anything he did wrong.
Paul further noted that “It goes to judgement, talk about errors, you think he might apologise to the world… to support that kind of research then look the other way and say nothing to see here, and to cover it up.”
“For the last two years he’s been covering his tracks, but we’ve caught him red handed and he won’t get away,” Paul asserted, adding “historically [Fauci] will be remembered for one of the worst judgments in the history of modern medicine.”
Paul also commented on efforts he is leading to overturn the Biden Administration’s COVID vaccine mandate for military personnel.
“They deserve to have their religious freedom, as well as their medical choices and freedom to decide what goes into their body,” Paul noted.
He continued, “We know this, and this is a scientific fact, the vaccine does not prevent you from getting an infection, it doesn’t prevent you from transmitting an infection, and for young people there isn’t significant evidence to show that it reduces the severity or hospitalisation.”
“The military has become so ‘woke’ and they’re demanding you get a vaccine that you don’t need, so something’s got to change,” the Senator further urged.
Three doses obligatory – Italy: 2 million unvaccinated people have to pay a fine – Today Times Live

Massive fall in the birth rate – a consequence of the corona vaccination? Current official figures from Germany and Switzerland show a massive decline in births in the first five months of this year.
“This is also very surprising because births have increased sharply in both countries in the last 10 years and the current decline observed breaks with this trend.
|DR. PAUL ALEXANDERDEC 1|
A detailed analysis from Switzerland shows that the massive drop in birth rates occurred in all Swiss cantons at the same time and amounted to between 2.5% and 29.1% (with the exception of one canton). This decrease correlates extremely significantly with the time of the first corona vaccination in the age group 20 to 49 years nine months earlier (low p-value of 0.0005704).
It is also striking that regions with a high vaccination rate in this age group also show a stronger fall in births: a vaccination rate of 63.9% in Zurich with a fall in births of −18% and 49.7% in eastern Switzerland with a fall in births of − 8.6%.

Stocks, Bonds, Crypto, & Commodities Soar As ‘Dovish’ Powell Trumps ‘Hawkish’ Payrolls
FRIDAY, DEC 02, 2022 – 11:00 PM
A chaotic week of China COVID headlines mixed with OPEC production cut rumors, sprinkled in with ugly economic data (ISM/PMI/Housing) and “great” economic data (payrolls and wage growth) was all trumped by the market’s belief that Fed Chair Powell spoke ‘dovishly’.
On the week, Fed rate trajectory adjusted lower (dovishly) with terminal Fed rate expectations dropping and rate-cut expectations increased…
Which pushed stocks higher on the week (notably the equity dump from the ‘hawkish’ jobs data this morning was quickly rebuked as the reality under the headlines showed things are nothing like a bright. The Nasdaq was the week’s best performer, Dow managed to close green on the week thanks to a late-day meltup…
NOTE – stocks had traded rather hawkishly into the Powell speech.
VIX tumbled back below the key 20 level to its lowest since April…
Bonds were also bid on the week, with the entire curve basically down around 17-18bps on the week…
The yield curve ended unchanged on the week after steepening ahead of today’s payrolls print and then flattening hugely today…
The dollar fell for the 6th week of the last 7, breaking below its 200DMA… This is the lowest close for the Bloomberg Dollar Index since June…
Cryptos managed gains on the week with Ethereum up 7.5% and Bitcoin up around 3%…
Commodities all benefited from a weaker dollar and dovish talk with silver outperforming…
A noisy week for crude but WTI ended the week up at $80…
Gold surged back above $1800 this week – its highest since August…
Finally, we wonder just how Jay Powell feels about the fact that financial conditions have eased dramatically in the last few weeks…
In fact, all of the tightening since the September FOMC meeting has now been erased… that doesn’t seem like the kind of ‘longer and more restrictive’ path that Fed speakers have been jawboning all week?!
EARLY MORNING TRADING
November Payrolls Unexpectedly Smash Expectations As Hourly Earnings Jump
FRIDAY, DEC 02, 2022 – 03:38 PM
It was supposed to be the lowest payrolls report since December 2020 and… it was, but not how the market expected. With consensus expecting a 200K print (and whisper predicting much lower amid the mass tech layoffs), virtually nobody – not even Goldman – expected anything resembling a beat. And while we did in fact get the weakest print since Dec 2020 (and tied with March 2021), the report was a completely unexpected beat to expectations, coming in at +263K, this was a huge beat to expectations of 200K (the 7th consecutive beat) and just barely a drop compared to the upward revised 284K last month.
The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for September was revised down by 46,000, from +315,000 to +269,000, and the change for October was revised up by 23,000, from +261,000 to +284,000. With these revisions, employment gains in September and October combined were 23,000 lower than previously reported
Monthly job growth has averaged 392,000 thus far in 2022, compared with 562,000 per month in 2021. In November, the biggest job gains occurred in leisure and hospitality (bartenders and waiters), health care, and government. Employment declined in retail trade and in transportation and warehousing.
As noted, this was the 7th consecutive payrolls beat of expectations in a row!
The unemployment rate was unchanged at 3.7% in November, in line with expectations, and has been in a narrow range of 3.5% to 3.7% since March. The number of unemployed persons was essentially unchanged at 6.0 million in November. Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult men (3.4 percent), adult women (3.3 percent), teenagers (11.3 percent), Whites (3.2 percent), Blacks (5.7 percent), Asians (2.7 percent), and Hispanics (3.9 percent) showed little or no change over the month. (See tables A-1, A-2, and A-3.)
Both the labor force participation rate, at 62.1 percent, and the employment-population ratio, at 59.9 percent, were little changed in November and have shown little net change since early this year.
But what was the most troubling update is that wages came in red hot again, with average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls rising by 18 cents, or 0.6% to $32.82, double the expected 0.3% growth . Over the past 12 months, average hourly earnings have increased by 5.1% which was also above the 4.6% expected.
Here is Cornerstone Financial’s Cliff Hodge on the earnings data: “While the headline payrolls number was strong, the wage data is going to be eye-popping for the Fed. The 0.6% month-over-month wage growth number matched the highest level all year. Higher wages feed into higher inflation, which will no doubt keep pressure on the Fed and should increase expectations for the terminal rate. We got no help from the participation rate, which continues to move in the wrong direction and will keep competition for labor high until the economy inevitably rolls over sometime next year.”
In November, the average workweek for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls declined by 0.1 hour to 34.4 hours. In manufacturing, the average workweek for all employees decreased by 0.2 hour to 40.2 hours, and overtime declined by 0.1 hour to 3.1 hours. The average workweek for production and nonsupervisory employees on private nonfarm payrolls decreased by 0.1 hour to 33.9 hours.
Some more details:
- Among the unemployed, the number of permanent job losers rose by 127,000 to 1.4 million in November. The number of persons on temporary layoff changed little at 803,000.
- The number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was little changed at 1.2 million in November. The long-term unemployed accounted for 20.6 percent of all unemployed persons.
- The number of persons employed part time for economic reasons was about unchanged at 3.7 million in November. These individuals, who would have preferred full-time employment, were working part time because their hours had been reduced or they were unable to find full-time jobs.
- The number of persons not in the labor force who currently want a job was little changed at 5.6 million in November and remains above its February 2020 level of 5.0 million. These individuals were not counted as unemployed because they were not actively looking for work during the 4 weeks preceding the survey or were unavailable to take a job.
- Among those not in the labor force who wanted a job, the number of persons marginally attached to the labor force held at 1.5 million in November. These individuals wanted and were available for work and had looked for a job sometime in the prior 12 months but had not looked for work in the 4 weeks preceding the survey. The number of discouraged workers, a subset of the marginally attached who believed that no jobs were available for them, was 405,000 in November, little changed from the previous month.
Drilling down into the BLS’s establishment survey fabulation we get the following ridiculous modeled “data”:
- Leisure and hospitality added 88,000 jobs in November, including a gain of 62,000 in food services and drinking places. Leisure and hospitality has added an average of 82,000 jobs per month thus far this year, less than half the average gain of 196,000 jobs per month in 2021.
- In November, employment in health care rose by 45,000, with gains in ambulatory health care services (+23,000), hospitals (+11,000), and nursing and residential care facilities (+10,000).
- Government added 42,000 jobs in November, mostly in local government (+32,000). Government employment has increased by an average of 25,000 per month thus far this year, compared with 38,000 per month in 2021. Since February 2020, government employment is down by 461,000, or 2.0 percent.
- In November, employment in the other services industry rose by 24,000, as personal and laundry services added 11,000 jobs over the month. Other services employment has increased by an average of 15,000 per month thus far this year, compared with 24,000 per month in 2021. Employment in other services is below its February 2020 level by 186,000, or 3.1 percent.
- Employment in social assistance increased by 23,000 in November and has returned to its February 2020 level. Within social assistance, employment in individual and family services increased by 17,000 in November. Job growth in social assistance has averaged 18,000 per month thus far in 2022, compared with an average of 13,000 per month in 2021.
- Construction employment continued to trend up in November (+20,000), with nonresidential building adding 8,000 jobs. Construction has added an average of 19,000 jobs per month thus far this year, little different from the 2021 average of 16,000 per month.
- Employment in information rose by 19,000 in November. Employment in the industry has increased by an average of 14,000 per month thus far this year, in line with the average of 16,000 per month in 2021.
- Manufacturing employment continued to trend up in November (+14,000). Job growth has averaged 34,000 per month thus far this year, little different from the 2021 average of 30,000 per month.
- In November, employment in financial activities continued its upward trend (+14,000). Job gains in real estate and rental and leasing (+13,000) and in securities, commodity contracts, and investments (+6,000) were partially offset by a decline in credit intermediation and related activities (-9,000). Employment in financial activities has increased by an average of 12,000 per month thus far this year, the same as in 2021.
- Employment in retail trade declined by 30,000 in November. Job losses in general merchandise stores (-32,000), electronics and appliance stores (-4,000), and furniture and home furnishings stores (-3,000) were partially offset by a job gain in motor vehicle and parts dealers (+10,000). Retail trade employment has fallen by 62,000 since August.
- Employment in transportation and warehousing declined by 15,000 in November and has decreased by 38,000 since July. In November, job losses in warehousing and storage (-13,000) and in couriers and messengers (-12,000) were partially offset by a job gain in air transportation (+4,000).
- Employment in professional and business services changed little in November (+6,000). Within the industry, professional and technical services added 28,000 jobs, while business support services lost 11,000 jobs. Monthly job growth in professional and business services has averaged 58,000 thus far in 2022, down from 94,000 per month in 2021.
And a visual heatmap of jobs courtesy of Bloomberg:
Needless to say this report, clearly politically motivated in light of everything else taking place in the economy, has put the Fed in a corner: while most other economic indicators scream recession, Biden’s last economic silver lining – the labor market – continues to come in far hotter than expected, and as such it forces Powell to keep tightening until such time as the bottom falls out of the economy and the US goes straight from expansion to depression, skipping recession completely.
Matt Maley, chief market strategist for Miller Tabak agrees: “The number one issue for the Fed has been wage inflation. Today’s much higher than expected data on average hourly earnings shows that it is still a big problem. This will prolong the Fed’s current tightening policy.”
As BBG economist Anna Wong notes, “The robust November jobs report reinforces a point Fed Chair Jerome Powell made in his Nov. 30 speech: Signs that wage growth is moderating are only ‘tentative.’ The resurgence of average hourly earnings growth shows labor shortages are still pressuring inflation, pushing back against the idea — supported by a few Fed officials, as indicated in the November FOMC minutes — that wage growth is cooling fast. Given the slow adjustment in the labor market, Fed officials will likely have to raise their terminal-rate forecast from what they wrote down in the September dot plot.”
And in keeping with the market reaction matrix we shared earlier, the kneejerk reaction for all risk assets – stocks, TSYs, gold, and crypto – is uniformly lower.then
Bonds & Stocks Slammed After Payrolls Sparks Hawkish Surge In Rate-Hike Expectations
BY TYLER DURDEN
FRIDAY, DEC 02, 2022 – 03:51 PM
We’re gonna need another ‘dovish’ Powell speech to calm this market down.
This morning’s hotter than expected payrolls print (and reaccelerating wage growth) is not what the market or The Fed wanted to see to keep the ‘pause/pivot’ dream alive and rate-hike expectations are spiking and rate-cut hopes are tumbling…
This sent TSY yields soaring, led by the short-end…
And slammed stocks lower…
And spiked the dollar…
As Peter Tchir notes, the big news is earnings! Last month was up 0.5% instead of original 0.4% and this month was up a whopping 0.6% (versus 0.3% expected). Fed will not like that.
Establishment showing 263k jobs, with an upward revision of 23k to last month, but negative 46k the prior month (almost like we overstate jobs and claw back a bit over time). Household survey showed 138k job losses (with 328k lost last month). Why do we bother with two surveys?
Unemployment rate held steady at 3.7% but only because the labor force participation rate dropped – again!
We should give up some of this week’s gains (on rates, spreads and equities) and jobs, once again seems to be the strongest part of the economy (though Establishment survey seems to see more jobs than ADP or Household, but c’est la vie).
The pre-FOMC blackout period closes and leaves the market on its own to create a narrative that the pause is still alive…
Why the jobs report is one big farce
a must read…
Something Is Rigged: Unexplained, Record 2.7 Million Jobs Gap Emerges In Broken Payrolls Report
FRIDAY, DEC 02, 2022 – 05:49 PM
A superficial take of today’s jobs report would note that both jobs and earnings “blew past expectations, flying in the face of Fed rate hikes”, and while that is accurate at the headline level, it couldn’t be further from the truth if one actually digs a little deeper in today’s jobs numbers.
Recall that back in August, September, and October we showed that a stark divergence had opened between the Household and Establishment surveys that comprise the monthly jobs report, and since March the former has been stagnant while the latter has been rising every single month. In addition to that, full-time jobs were plunging while part-time jobs were surging and the number of multiple-jobholders soared.
Fast forward to today when the inconsistencies not only continue to grow, but have become downright grotesque.
Consider the following: the closely followed Establishment survey came in above expectations at 263K, above the 200K expected – a record 7th consecutive beat vs expectations – and down modestly from last month’s upward revised 284K…
… numbers which confirm that at a time when virtually every major tech company is announcing mass layoffs…
… the BLS has a single, laser-focused political agenda – not to spoil the political climate at a time when Democrats just lost control of the House as somehow both construction (+20K) and manufacturing (+14K) added jobs according to the BLS, when even ADP now reports that these two sectors combined shed more than 100,000 workers in November.
Alas, there is only so much the Department of Labor can hide under the rug because when looking at the abovementioned gap between the Household and Establishment surveys which we have been pounding the table on since the summer, it just blew out by a whopping 401K as a result of the 263K increase in the number of nonfarm payrolls (tracked by the Household survey) offset by a perplexing plunge in the number of people actually employed which tumbled by 138K (tracked by Household survey). Furthermore, as shown in the next chart, since March the number of employed workers has declined on 4 of the past 8 months, while the much more gamed nonfarm payrolls (goalseeked by the Establishment survey) have been up every single month.
What is even more perplexing, is that despite the continued rise in nonfarm payrolls, the Household survey continues to telegraph growing weakness, and as of Nov 30, the gap that opened in March has since grown to a whopping 2.7 million “workers” which may or may not exist anywhere besides the spreadsheet model of some BLS (or is that BLM) political activist. In fact, one look at the chart below confirms all one needs to know about BLS “data integrity.”
Showing this another way, there were 158.458 million employed workers in March 2022… and 158.470 million in November 2022 an increase of just 12,000 over 8 months, a period in which the number of payrolls (which as a reminder is the number the market follows) reportedly increased by 2.7 million!
As an aside, it appears this is not the first time the “apolitical” Bureau of Labor Statistics has pulled such a bizarre divergence off: it happened right before Obama’s reelection:
And then again: right before Hillary’s “100% guaranteed election (because one wouldn’t want a soft economy to adversely impact her re-election odds).
It gets better: digging in even deeper into the far more accurate and nuanced Household Survey, we find that the November drop in Employment was the result of a plunge in part-time workers, more than offsetting the modest increase in part-time workers which had declined in 3 of the past 4 months heading into November.
Further to this point, as shown below, since March, the US has lost 398K full-time employees offset by amodest gain of 190K part-time employees, while a whopping 291k workers were forced to get more than one job over the same period.
And while none of the above is really new – we have documented the record divergence between payrolls and employment for half a year now – there were two new developments: first, to facilitate its rigging of the data, the BLS has resorted to the oldest trick in the book, boosting the core goal-seek factor, the business “birth death” adjustments, which in October hit a record high 455K, and although it has since dipped to 14K in November, the trend in speculative BLS assumptions about the viability of the US economy (more businesses are created than are shut down only when there is economic solid growth) is clearly visible in the chart below.
Another point: it appears that the BLS is now aggressively estimating the so-called hard data. As Goldman’s Jan Hatzius observed, the 49% Establishment survey response rate was much lower than the 70-75% rate typical in November. The chart below shows just how much of an outlier the Nov 2022 payrolls report: it confirms that roughly a third of the report was not based on reality at all but on aggressive excel modeling and estimates.
One final point: a former Fed staffer Julia Coronado points out, we have reached the absurd part of the business cycle when average hours are declining in certain sectors even as hourly earnings are rising, prompting her to wonder if we are not in fact seeing a spike in hourly income courtesy of lump-sump severance payments.
So what’s going on here?
The simple answer: as shocking as this may sound, there has been no change in the number of people actually employed in the past 8 months, but due to deterioration in the economy, more people are losing their higher-paying, full-time jobs, and switching into much lower- paying, benefits-free part-time jobs, which also forces many to work more than one job, a rotation which picked up in earnest some time in March and which has only been captured by the Household survey. Meanwhile the Establishment survey plows on ahead with its politically-motivated approximations, seasonal adjustments, and other labor market goalseeking meant to make the Biden admin look good and provide the Fed with ammo to keep rates high (thus forcing even more real layoffs, which unfortunately the BLS is incapable of capturing due to political reasons).
And since the Establishment survey is far slower to pick up on the nuances in employment composition, while the Household Survey has gone nowhere since March, the BLS data engineers have been busy goalseeking the Establishment Survey (with the occasional nudge from the White House especially now that the Biden admin needs something to hang its hat on after the GOP recaptured the House) to make it appear as if the economy is growing strongly, when in reality all they are doing is applying the same erroneous seasonal adjustment factor that gave such a wrong perspective of the labor market in the aftermath of the covid pandemic (until it was all adjusted away a year ago). In other words, while the labor market is already cracking, it will take the BLS several months of veering away from reality before the government bureaucrats accept and admit what is truly taking place.
As an aside, here we admit we were wrong: back in August we said that “we expect that “realization” to take place just after the midterms, because the last thing the Biden administration can afford is admit the labor market is crashing in addition to the continued surge in inflation.” Little did we know just how stubborn and intent the White House is to stick to the broken narrative that all is well in the US.
Or, putting it otherwise as BofA’s Michael Hartnett did earlier today (and as we will discuss in a subsequent post) – “unemployment in ’23 will be as shocking to Main St consumer sentiment as inflation in ’22.”

A bottom appeared at 4:37 ET. A modest rally ended quickly, ESZs and stocks went inert until the rally for the NYSE open began when the US bond market opened at 8 ET. ESZs hit their daily high of 4110.00 at 10 ET. They then tumbled to a daily low of 4050.50. The obligatory rally for the European close appeared.
After Europe closed, ESZs and US stocks sank until a Noon Balloon developed. The balloon deflated when the afternoon arrived; ESZs and stocks then went inert until the pre-last hour rally began at 14:48 ET. The rally ended within 3 minutes. But traders, including retail guppies, are euphoric and massively long call options. So, manipulators returned to markup stuff. The push ended within 5 minutes. Another modest spike appeared at 14:43; it ended at 14:45 ET. ESZs and stocks tumbled into the close while USZs and gold (+$57.40) soared. Is there a Credit Suisse problem in the system?

Janet Yellen blames Americans’ ‘splurging’ for record-high inflation
“They were in their homes for a year or more, they wanted to buy grills and office furniture, they were working from home, they suddenly started splurging on goods, buying technology,” she claimed, which led to supply chain “bottlenecks.”…
The fact that a dolt like Yellen repeatedly got appointed to high positions in the US is an indictment of the US Establishment and the system it has foisted on the USA – as well as the high US education system.

Today – The November Employment Report could be the last good NFP for a while.

At yearend, NFP NSA should approximate NFP SA. The BLS has a lot of rectification to perform to equate NFP NSA and NFP SA.

War on Trump, Died Suddenly Continues, Brace for Long Recession
By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (WNW 558 12.2.22)
There is a war on Trump from almost every angle. The Lying Legacy Media (LLM) continues the psyop that twists every piece of data into a negative for the 2024 presidential candidate. The Kanye (aka Ye) West antisemitic scam at Mara Largo is the latest attempt to destroy Donald Trump’s reputation with more lies. It ain’t going to work because everybody knows Trump is pro-Israel. He moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem for goodness’ sake. The investigations and lawfare are unrelenting, and yet Trump keeps going. Meanwhile, nobody is talking about the Hunter Biden investigation coming in the House or the FTX crypto allegations of money laundering for the Democrat party. The LLM wants you to think that Trump is the villain, but we all know Biden was cheated in, the 2022 Election continues to be rigged and the Biden crime family are up to their necks in corruption.
Every week there is a new group of unfortunate vax victims. They either “die suddenly” or are damaged for life at a very young age. This is simply not going to stop anytime soon. Now, people in Congress are starting to feel nervous about this increasing debacle and are offering to try to put an end to the mandatory vax idiocy in the U.S. military by withholding funding. Congress is exempt from the vax they allowed on the rest of the country, and it appears they need to try to save face and stop the carnage–at least in the military. There is no stopping what is coming, especially for the double vaxed and boosted. Just ask Al Roker, who just returned to the hospital for more life-threatening blood clots, and, yes, he’s reportedly triple vaxed.
The signs are everywhere in the world and the USA that we are heading into a recession—a deep one. Manufacturing just went into a contraction, European banks are tanking, inflation is boiling, and the Fed is still raising interest rates to fight it. Michael Burry says get ready for an “extended multi-year recession.”
