[…] At the gold comex today, we had a strong delivery day, registering another 87 notices for 8700 ounces and for silver we had 186 notices for 930,000 oz for the active March delivery month.
Several months ago the comex had 303 tonnes of total gold. Today, the total inventory rests at 211.15 tonnes for a loss of 92 tonnes over that period.
In silver, the open interest rose by 1475 contracts up to 163,768. In ounces, the OI is still represented by .819 billion oz or 117% of annual global silver production (ex Russia ex China). Generally as we go into an active delivery month the liquidation is much bigger.
In silver we had 186 notices served upon for 930,000 oz.
