from TF Metals Report:
Recently, we’ve written quite often of the surge in Comex gold open interest and the attempts by The Banks to manage the paper derivative price by increasing the paper derivative supply. In this post, we turn to Comex silver, where The Banks are pulling the same tricks but with a very interesting twist.
Again, if you haven’t been following the increases in Comex gold open interest and how The Banks use fresh derivative supply to dampen the paper price, please check our most recent update here: http://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/7700/onward-toward-bullion-bank-collapse
But let’s take this analysis in a different direction today. As we’ve meticulously noted, the price of gold is now up over $300 in 2016, from $1060 to today’s $1370, for a total gain of 29.2%. Over this same time period, the total amount of contracts floating on the Comex has also increased from 415,220 on 12/31/15 to yesterday’s 652,971. That’s an increase of 201,751 contracts or 48.6%. Looked at another way…Since every Comex contract represents an obligation for 100 ounces of gold, the total supply of “paper gold” has increased by 20,175,100 troy ounces or about 627 metric tones.
So, over the same time period, have we seen any change to the total amount of gold allegedly held within the vaults of the eight Comes repositories? As a matter of fact we have! As you can see below, the total amount of Comex vaulted gold on 12/31/15 was 6,414,643 troy ounces, with 276,000 in the registered category and the rest listed as eligible (click to enlarge):
Well, how about that? Over the same time period, the amount of gold allegedly vaulted on the Comex has increased by over 3,000,000 ounces and, internally, the total registered stock has increased by more than 1,100,000 ounces. Now before anyone claims that this demonstrates the legitimacy of the Comex and The Paper Derivative Pricing Scheme, be sure to note that total paper claims increased by over 20,000,000 ounces over the same time period. So, in the most crude of calculations, we can say that The Banks took the newly-vaulted gold, levered it over six times and then flooded it into the “market” as a way to control the ascent of price.
But let’s not stop there because that’s not the focus of this post. Before the Cartel/System Apologists and Shills take the information above and claim that all is well and that the Comex is working as it should, perhaps they should look at the same numbers in Comex silver.
