[…] Today we got a little surprise in that gold rebounded from its lows to close at $1243.20 at comex closing time and silver was up 11 cents at $17.11 The comex options expiry had little effect on both metals. In silver, we now have an all time high in silver OI at 206,037 which represents 1.03 billion oz. Generally when you get a record high OI, you also have high prices for your commodity. In silver in blows my mind that we have a record OI and a low price of silver. It shows you the damage that the bankers inflicted upon us.
Please remember that even though comex options have expired we still have London’s LBMA and OTC to contend with. They expire on Friday morning.
