[…] The open interest on gold lowered by a tiny 4950 contracts despite the big hit on Friday. No wonder another raid today.
The open interest on silver lowered by a sliver 961 contracts and remains elevated at 176,529. With Chinese banks orchestrating the silver fix right now with other bankers (gold fix begins on April 17), it seems that they are losing control over the silver market.
Let us have a look at the data for today.
At the gold comex today, we had a good delivery day, registering 37 notices for 3700 ounces and for silver we had 78 notices for 390,000 oz for the active March delivery month.
