[…] Today the bums had gold and silver in their sights as they whacked gold down to $1239.65 and silver to $15.22 at 8 am with the Draghi announcement of an increase in NIRP and more QE. Then gold had a terrific outside day reversal climbing to a high of $1273.00 (and it closed at $1272.60). Silver finished up 19 cents to $15.55
At the gold comex today, we had a poor delivery day, registering 0 notices for nil ounces and for silver we had 7 notices for 35,000 oz for the active March delivery month.
Several months ago the comex had 303 tonnes of total gold. Today, the total inventory rests at 212.04 tonnes for a loss of 91 tonnes over that period.
In silver, the open interest fell by only 253 contracts to 169,622 despite the massive raid orchestrated by our crooks. In ounces, the OI is still represented by .849 billion oz or 122% of annual global silver production (ex Russia ex China).
