Is SLV Really Backed by Physical Silver?
Silver Fortune


Published on Jul 10, 2018
The term "paper silver" is often used to refer to exchanges like the COMEX. However, SLV and other so called "ETPs" have been given an enormous amount of attention by investors. However, are these paper assets backed by real, physical silver?

Published on Jul 18, 2018
Hey gang, quick update here again today. We've talked many times before about how nation states like Russia, China, Iran, Turkey, India & so forth are hoarding massive amounts of precious metals. What do they know about the global economy that we don't??? Understand that the spot price of gold and silver are being attacked at an orchestrated level. Holding physical gold/silver WILL BE REWARDED if time is on your side. I'm discussing that here today.

India Soaks Up Physical Silver Supply
Craig Hemke

Tuesday, July 17th





Rather than another discussion of charts and COMEX price projections, this week we thought we should point out a physical fundamental that has gone seemingly unnoticed in 2018.

Before we begin, let's be sure to give credit to Louis Cammarosano at Smaulgld. Louis diligently monitors global metal demand, and he brought this Indian demand issue to our attention last week. You can read his post here: https://smaulgld.com/india-silver-imports-april-20...

Let's cut to the chase. While the price of COMEX Digital Silver is being pounded lower in 2018, demand for actual physical silver in India is soaring. On Louis' chart below, note that the all-time peak in Indian silver demand came in 2015... when the price of COMEX Digital Silver bottomed below $14 and then began a 50% rally to $21 by mid-2016. In fact, the month of April 2018 alone saw India import 902 metric tonnes, the highest one-month total since December of 2015.



And it's important to understand the chart above in context. The 2,889 metric tonnes imported in 2018 is only through April. That's just 1/3 of the year, so to determine an annual run rate we need to multiply that 2,889 number by three. Thus, if current Indian demand continues at this pace for the rest of the year, total Indian demand will reach 8,667 metric tonnes for 2018, exceeding the previous high of 8,529 metric tonnes in 2015.

But let's not stop there. How much silver is 8,667 metric tonnes? Is that a lot or a little? Well, consider this article from December of last year. The author cites a report from a group called Metals Focus, which projects total global silver mine supply in 2018 to be 867,000,000 ounces. A similar study from Jeffrey Christian's CPM Group pegs global supply in 2018 at just 817,000,000 ounces. (http://www.kitco.com/news/2017-12-22/Global-Silver-Mine-Supply-Expected-...) Let's spilt the difference and call it 840,000,000 ounces.

Now back to India... How many ounces is 8,667 metric tonnes? About 280,000,000. So let's do some math. The entire world is going to produce 840,000,000 ounces of silver, yet India alone is on pace to import 280,000,000 ounces. Divide Indian demand into the total mine supply number and you find that India is on pace to import one third of all the silver mined globally in 2018.

Now you might expect that any one country sopping up fully one third of the global supply of anything would have a positive impact on price. But not in the bizarro world of COMEX digital derivative pricing! In 2018, it's not physical supply and demand that determines price. Instead, it's the supply and demand of the COMEX digital derivative that determines the physical price.

While the world only produces 840,000,000 ounces of silver, the COMEX in New York regularly maintains a total open interest of more than 200,000 silver contracts. At 5,000 ounces per contract, that's 1,000,000,000 ounces of digital silver. And with an average daily trading volume in excess of 100,000 contracts (http://www.kitco.com/news/2018-04-03/CME-Group-Lists-Record-Metals-Tradi...), the COMEX trades over 500,000,000 ounces of digital silver every day! As you can see, it's not the trading of physical metal that determines price. Instead, it's the trading of the digital derivative.

Putting this all together leads us to the crux of the matter. Led by India, the world is on pace to consume all of the silver produced in 2018, yet the dollar price of silver is now down over 10% year-to-date. That's a dichotomy that must soon rectify itself. Either physical silver demand will crash before year-end OR the paper price will be forced to respond as it did in 2016.

Thus, watch these global physical demand numbers closely in the months to come. If Indian and global physical silver demand continue to surge, the digital derivative pricing system must respond with higher prices or it will risk collapse and failure.

YEP, If YOU do not hold the keys or combination to the vault where the gold is then you DO NOT own the gold.

I talked to the people at Goldmoney years ago over the phone. I didn't like the speech or the voice pattern. "Thanks" I said and hung up.
Last time I ever thought of Goldmoney until this article.

This vaults treat people like the NY Federal Reserve treats Foreign governments that want their gold back.
I guess they learned from the "Best errrr Most Evil".

The Next Silver Run To $50 (And Beyond)

Theodore Butler
August 9, 2018 - 1:57pm


Twice in the past the price of silver has risen in a short period to $50. It happened in 1980 during the Hunt brother’s manipulation and again three decades later in April 2011, when the price rose to nearly $50. Prior to the price run up in 2011, I wrote that a move to $50 was more than possible, since it had already occurred and that proved such a move was possible. Something that has happened twice before can certainly occur again. One thing that makes it probable is that there was three times the amount of silver above ground in 1980 than there is today. The six billion ounces that existed in 1980 has shrunk to two billion ounces of industry standard 1000 ounces bars. The amount of world money creation and buying power has increased exponentially over the past seven years. It is nothing short of extraordinary that there is less than a third of world silver inventories remaining today than there was in 1980 while the price has remained far below the peak it reached back then.

In 1980, there were less than 3 billion ounces of gold in all forms above ground throughout the world – the cumulative production of thousands of years. Today, 38 years later, the total amount of above ground gold has doubled, thanks to an explosion of gold mine production. While silver mine production has similarly exploded over the past 38 years, there is much less silver around now. The explanation for why there is so much less silver and so much more gold is that silver is a vital industrial commodity, consumed in a wide variety of applications, while gold is not. Silver lost its primary consumption use - photography, due to digital displacement, but despite this loss, a myriad number of new uses powered silver’s continued consumption. Unlike silver, the price of gold is substantially higher than it was at its peak in 1980.

There is no minimizing the powerful dynamics in place for the next move higher in silver. That move should extend far beyond the $50 barrier of the past and, when the move does start, it will most likely unfold much quicker than the previous big moves. When it occurs, most observers will be dazed and confused. The principle dynamic of this coming big move in silver and gold will be the role of JPMorgan. Over the past ten years, as a result of its government-assisted takeover of Bear Stearns, JPMorgan has been the dominant futures (paper) short seller on the COMEX, becoming so powerful that it has compiled a perfect trading record – never once taking a loss and amassing many billions of dollars of trading profits. As remarkable as this unblemished trading record of the past decade has been, it actually pales in comparison to what JPMorgan has been able to accomplish in the physical market. It has used the highly depressed prices it largely created to accumulate on the cheap 750 million ounces of physical silver and 20 million ounces of physical gold.

The accumulation of such a massive private hoard of physical silver and gold, by far the largest such amounts in history, is the single most powerful argument that the coming move higher will be one for the record books. JPMorgan is the unchallenged master of the financial universe and it didn’t go to the trouble of accumulating such massive and historic quantities of physical silver and gold for a quick trade or a small gain. It did so in order to make the largest profit in history. I understand that many doubt my claims that JPMorgan has amassed 750 million ounces of physical silver and 20 million ounces of gold. After all, aside from the near 150 million documentable ounces of silver that JPMorgan holds in its own COMEX warehouse proof of the other 600 million ounces that JPM owns is notably missing. Certainly, if the entire 750 million ounces could be seen by everyone, there would be no debate. It is precisely because most of the silver held by JPMorgan can’t be seen that makes my claim noteworthy.

As it stands, JPMorgan’s accumulation of physical silver and gold is mostly unknown. I think this is a good thing because when silver does fly higher, no one will be pointing the finger at JPMorgan. They will skate undetected to many tens of billions of dollars of profits with the world blissfully unaware of the real story. It is in JPMorgan’s self-interest to hide from view as much of its silver and gold accumulation as possible. Even though the 600 million silver ounces held by JPMorgan are hidden, I have described in detail to subscribers (and in public articles) the three main means by which it has acquired the metal on a weekly basis going back at least five years. First was via skimming off a small portion of the unprecedented, yet documented weekly physical movement in and out of the COMEX silver warehouses – an inventory movement not seen in any other commodity. Over the past 7.5 years, more than 1.5 billion ounces of silver have physically been moved in and out of the COMEX silver warehouses of which JPMorgan has skimmed off at least 200 million ounces (apart from the 144 million ounces it holds in its own COMEX warehouse).

Next, JPMorgan bought at least 150 million ounces of Silver American Eagles and Canadian Maple Leafs from 2011 thru 2016, melting every coin into industry standard 1,000 ounce bars. JPMorgan’s buying alone accounted for the string of record sales years and when it stopped buying, sales of these coins collapsed. Finally, as the official custodian for SLV, the world’s largest silver exchange traded fund (ETF), JPMorgan was ideally positioned to convert shares in the trust to metal and avoid all ownership reporting requirements. This alone is the explanation for the continuous counterintuitive deposits and withdrawals in SLV over the past seven and a half years. All told, JPMorgan picked up at least 250 million ounces of physical silver in this manner. All three of these accumulation methods by JPM were reported weekly to subscribers for years, and I suppose anyone not privy to the reporting would doubt it had occurred. Not much I can do about that.

As great as JPMorgan’s massive and historic holdings of physical silver are, remarkably, there is more. Not coincidently, the “more” also involves JPMorgan. At this time, it is accepted that the futures market structure in COMEX silver and gold (and other metals) is the most bullish it has been in history. Specifically, the level of short selling by the managed money technical funds is the highest it has been in history. This is clearly bullish as these technical fund shorts have no choice but to buy back their short positions at some point and switch (or try to switch) to the long side. Thus, a massive amount of potential buying is already in place, awaiting only the eventual occurrence of higher prices to be set off.

While the current bullish market structure in COMEX silver and gold is reasonably well known and written about, much less is known about JPMorgan’s role in forming this bullish market structure. CFTC data verifies that JPMorgan has been, by far, the largest purchaser of COMEX silver and gold futures contracts over the past couple of months. In other words, not only has JPMorgan been the largest buyer in history of physical silver and gold over the past seven years it has also been the largest buyer of COMEX futures contracts on the deliberately-engineered price decline of late.

By my calculations and based upon CFTC data, JPMorgan has bought back 20,000 COMEX silver short contracts (the equivalent of 100 million ounces) and 90,000 COMEX gold short contracts (the equivalent of 9 million ounces). How many more COMEX futures contracts can be bought by JPMorgan is anyone’s guess, but based upon the record short selling by the managed money traders, it wouldn’t appear that JPMorgan can buy many more COMEX contracts. After all, the record managed money selling is what enabled JPMorgan to buy so many contracts in the first place; once that selling dries up, JPMorgan is unlikely to be able to buy many more contracts as a result.

It is the highly concentrated nature of JPMorgan’s futures contract buying that sets the stage for an upside price jolt that promises to unfold faster to the upside than any previous move. So deft has JPMorgan been in buying gold futures contracts recently that I have taken to describing it as a double cross of other traders. But once the move higher unfolds, it promises to be the largest rally in silver and gold in history by virtue of the massive physical hoard accumulated by JPMorgan.

Amazingly, all it will take for this price explosion scenario to unfold is for JPMorgan not to add aggressively to short positions when the inevitable rally begins. You heard me right – the silver price explosion to $50 and beyond, along with a commensurate move in gold is only contingent on JPMorgan doing nothing on the next rally. Admittedly, JPMorgan has been in many similar set ups in the past and has always added aggressively to its COMEX short positions, eventually capping those rallies. This has prompted many to assume that JPMorgan will always sell short aggressively on future rallies. But the current set up has never favored JPMorgan this much. If what JPMorgan has always done holds true again we will get a rally of some significance anyway, just not the big one. But if JPMorgan doesn’t add to short positions on the next rally, the third run to $50 silver and beyond should be at hand.

750 million ounces of physical silver and 20 million ounces of physical gold.
Is there a ratio there that we are not seeing? 37.5:1 it seems.

750m x $30 profit per oz = 22.5 bil
20m x $2400 = 48bil

70.5 bil profit if it silver runs to $50 & gold to $3600.
If they have higher price targets who knows?

It is in JPMorgan’s self-interest to hide from view as much of its silver and gold accumulation as possible. Even though the 600 million silver ounces held by JPMorgan are hidden, I have described in detail to subscribers (and in public articles) the three main means by which it has acquired the metal on a weekly basis going back at least five years. First was via skimming off a small portion of the unprecedented, yet documented weekly physical movement in and out of the COMEX silver warehouses – an inventory movement not seen in any other commodity. Over the past 7.5 years, more than 1.5 billion ounces of silver have physically been moved in and out of the COMEX silver warehouses of which JPMorgan has skimmed off at least 200 million ounces (apart from the 144 million ounces it holds in its own COMEX warehouse).

Next, JPMorgan bought at least 150 million ounces of Silver American Eagles and Canadian Maple Leafs from 2011 thru 2016, melting every coin into industry standard 1,000 ounce bars. JPMorgan’s buying alone accounted for the string of record sales years and when it stopped buying, sales of these coins collapsed. Finally, as the official custodian for SLV, the world’s largest silver exchange traded fund (ETF), JPMorgan was ideally positioned to convert shares in the trust to metal and avoid all ownership reporting requirements. This alone is the explanation for the continuous counterintuitive deposits and withdrawals in SLV over the past seven and a half years. All told, JPMorgan picked up at least 250 million ounces of physical silver in this manner. All three of these accumulation methods by JPM were reported weekly to subscribers for years, and I suppose anyone not privy to the reporting would doubt it had occurred. Not much I can do about that.

As great as JPMorgan’s massive and historic holdings of physical silver are, remarkably, there is more. Not coincidently, the “more” also involves JPMorgan. At this time, it is accepted that the futures market structure in COMEX silver and gold (and other metals) is the most bullish it has been in history. Specifically, the level of short selling by the managed money technical funds is the highest it has been in history. This is clearly bullish as these technical fund shorts have no choice but to buy back their short positions at some point and switch (or try to switch) to the long side. Thus, a massive amount of potential buying is already in place, awaiting only the eventual occurrence of higher prices to be set off.

While the current bullish market structure in COMEX silver and gold is reasonably well known and written about, much less is known about JPMorgan’s role in forming this bullish market structure. CFTC data verifies that JPMorgan has been, by far, the largest purchaser of COMEX silver and gold futures contracts over the past couple of months. In other words, not only has JPMorgan been the largest buyer in history of physical silver and gold over the past seven years it has also been the largest buyer of COMEX futures contracts on the deliberately-engineered price decline of late.

By my calculations and based upon CFTC data, JPMorgan has bought back 20,000 COMEX silver short contracts (the equivalent of 100 million ounces) and 90,000 COMEX gold short contracts (the equivalent of 9 million ounces). How many more COMEX futures contracts can be bought by JPMorgan is anyone’s guess, but based upon the record short selling by the managed money traders, it wouldn’t appear that JPMorgan can buy many more COMEX contracts. After all, the record managed money selling is what enabled JPMorgan to buy so many contracts in the first place; once that selling dries up, JPMorgan is unlikely to be able to buy many more contracts as a result.

It is the highly concentrated nature of JPMorgan’s futures contract buying that sets the stage for an upside price jolt that promises to unfold faster to the upside than any previous move. So deft has JPMorgan been in buying gold futures contracts recently that I have taken to describing it as a double cross of other traders. But once the move higher unfolds, it promises to be the largest rally in silver and gold in history by virtue of the massive physical hoard accumulated by JPMorgan.

Amazingly, all it will take for this price explosion scenario to unfold is for JPMorgan not to add aggressively to short positions when the inevitable rally begins. You heard me right – the silver price explosion to $50 and beyond, along with a commensurate move in gold is only contingent on JPMorgan doing nothing on the next rally. Admittedly, JPMorgan has been in many similar set ups in the past and has always added aggressively to its COMEX short positions, eventually capping those rallies. This has prompted many to assume that JPMorgan will always sell short aggressively on future rallies. But the current set up has never favored JPMorgan this much. If what JPMorgan has always done holds true again we will get a rally of some significance anyway, just not the big one. But if JPMorgan doesn’t add to short positions on the next rally, the third run to $50 silver and beyond should be at hand.

Silver and Gold Price Plunge – an Explanation
https://youtu.be/3gkbNE_mJ5A

Silver and Gold prices Plunge below $15 and $1200
https://youtu.be/h7q4n1jgUBY

Gold and Silver weekly Update – w/e 10th August 2018
https://youtu.be/r3HJRviJYmc

Today is Sunday 19th August 2018 and we are asking the question what will it take to cause silver prices to rise again?

On Tuesday 24th April 2018 Reuters reported the following comment from CPM Group….. “The price of silver will depend heavily on trends in investment demand in 2018, but could get a boost from international political and economic risk purchases.”
Now just to remind you who CPM Group are – They are based in New York is a commodities research, consulting, financial advisory and commodities management firm providing independent research, analysis and advisory services.

In other words, this organisation essentially supplies data to the Industry at a cost e.g. they charge $160 for a copy, of their own Annual Silver Survey which incidentally quotes:
“The enormous range of economic, financial and political issues facing the world and individual investors seems more likely to lead to a rekindling of silver demand from investors.’

So let’s take a reality check here for a moment. Average Silver prices declined 0.5% in 2017 and so far, this year they are down 14% or $2.40 an ounce as investors pursue higher-yielding opportunities, including global equities.

So what is the catalyst that is likely to push up silver prices in the very near future?

But to keep this video simple and frankly easy to digest we confine future silver price growth to essentially be determined by 3 factors:
1. The continuing deficit in supply vs demand
2. Increase in Industrial usage
3. Increase in purchases for investment or speculative purposes.

Well here are some of the remedies we have come up with:

1. A serious Military conflict involving the United States and the more serious the better.
2. A major Banking or Financial Services default such as witnessed in 2008 but on a much larger scale where the contagion spreads throughout the whole Industrialised world.
3. A crisis in the support of the US dollar with could be geopolitical, commercial as above or possibly domestic political – for example the uncertainty that would be caused say if President Trump was impeached – though this would only have a short-term effect.
4. Our proverbial black swan, something none of us have thought of.

The bottom line is something that will panic the traders and investors causing both the physical demand for gold and silver to rise but also, and the conspiracy theorists or market manipulation accusers will love this, also, cause the speculators on Wall St and the Comex to paper trade silver – yes paper trade it via calls and call options, causing its price to rise dramatically.

Now will these things happen? They might, but can you see why the gold and silver pumpers are constantly spreading the fear of an imminent market collapse, dollar collapse or impending war – as essentially it is one of these factors during the next few years or so that will cause silver prices to rise well above what normal trading conditions will allow.

This is why we have continually reinforced our message for those who purchase silver for capital appreciation, do so with the longer term in mind. If any of the events occur as mentioned above, and prices sharply rise, then that’s an economic bonus, and if they do not then you will have preserved your wealth while the fiat currency will have depleted over those years.

We hope you have found this video food for thought. Of course you can disagree with us – by all means please share your views on what you believe it will take to turn the silver market around.

I ignore all claims that the silver supply is drying up. As long as men and machines dig in the Earth, some silver will come up along with whatever metal they're actually digging for.

The day will never come when all silver is depleted.

I predict very low Ag prices for as long as they can keep the dollar propped up.

Gold and Silver weekly Update – w/e 10th August 2018
https://youtu.be/r3HJRviJYmc

Today is Wednesday 22nd August 2018 and we are reporting on the FOMC Minutes just announced and what they suggest for silver prices.

In our weekly round-up last Saturday we pointed out that on Wednesday we have the FOMC minutes supporting the FED meeting on 31st July and 1st August – and this should provide an insight into how close the next interest rate rise is likely to be.
Well here are the key highlights from Reuters:

1 The Labour market has Continued to strengthen
2 Escalating trade tensions between China and the US has affected foreign exchange markets
3 Global equity prices received some support from positive agreements between the US and the EU
4 Indicators of longer-term inflation expectations are little changed
5 Trade policies could have a negative effect on economic growth
6 Risks to the economic outlook appear roughly balanced
7 Further gradual increases in the target range for the federal funds rate will be consistent with the sustained expansion of economic activity, strong labour market conditions and an inflation objective of 2%

The conclusion from this is that their original forecasts more or less remain unchanged and members see another rate hike likely very soon. On this news, Gold rose from $1,195/oz to $1,199 after the Fed’s minutes supported by a slide of the US dollar across the board. The decline so far has been modest and gold failed to break the $1,200 barrier. It currently stands at $1195 as we produce this video.

The dollar index currently stands at 95.07 compared with 96.10 on the weekend and silver stands at $14.75 compared with $14.80 on Friday’s close.

So despite bad political news, a weakening dollar and the FED frankly stating nothing that wasn’t expected, the reaction in the gold and silver price has been somewhat poor to say the least. This suggests at first glance at least, that prices may indeed go lower and very soon. It will be some weeks before more revelations are likely, and traders may indeed fear an interest rate rise in September. So, unless something happens over the next couple of days in relation to the FED’s minutes, then we could very well see lower prices in the weeks to come. Naturally we shall have a better idea by the weekend, but we wanted to update you with the important news for the week.

JP Morgan's Opportunity of a Lifetime in Silver - Ted Butler
Silver Fortune


Published on Aug 31, 2018
Ted Butler comes on to talk about the silver market, and why JP Morgan is now in prime position to let silver rise organically for the first time in decades. Should those of us that own physical silver be rooting for JP Morgan? And if they do let the price rise significantly, what's next? More manipulation, or will silver begin using something more organic for price discovery?

Two Themes Have Emerged in the Silver Market
Silver Fortune


Published on Sep 1, 2018
These two themes are a big part of where I believe silver is headed next. Namely, the emerging market crisis, and its continued spread, as well as JP Morgan's current positioning in the paper silver markets. Keep an eye on these two trends to identify if silver is headed to the proverbial moon in the near future, or if even more negative price action is possible. Will JP Morgan let silver rise organically? This video explains why I think that event may coincide with the Fed reversing their current path in terms of monetary policy.
