Comex Silver "Deliveries" Surge In September

Though Comex metal "delivery" remains a sham and circle jerk where The Banks simply shuffle paper warehouse receipts and warrants, we thought the latest totals for September were noteworthy enough to bring them to your attention. Again, we've written about this on countless occasions and this post is not meant to imply that "the Comex is about to break" or that "there is a run on The Banks". Instead, September saw the continuation of two trends of which you need to be aware. Comex "deliveries" are up dramatically in 2017 and JPM continues to stand down.

Silver: The Red-Headed, Freckle-Faced Stepchild

In grade school, I had a classmate named Craig McVeigh who was easily one of the most maligned kids in the school because as a big lad standing a full hand width taller than anyone and weighing thirty pounds more than anyone, he was never allowed to play in any sports that involved physical contact.

Losing Control

The Fed is on the verge of completely losing control of its Treasury bond "QE" Ponzi Scheme; as in reality, the 32-year Treasury Bond market is decidedly OVER. China and Japan are selling, the rest of the world is selling, and thus, the Fed will likely be forced to announce "QE5" around the same time they were initially expected to start "tapering."

Silver, too, is being heavily capped, at the same KEY ROUND NUMBER of $27.50/oz that has served as the Cartel’s line in the sand for roughly three weeks.

Better Places to Keep Your Money than the Bank

My local bank in Colorado is literally offering to pay me no interest --just an offensive 0.05% annually, before taxes. The interest rate triples to 0.15% when the balance exceeds $50,000. Absolutely no incentive when one considers the risks the bank imposes on your capital, retaining only pennies on the dollar of your money, then leveraging your capital -- fractional banking. How can I be interested in a 0% savings rate deposited at a relatively risky institution while supporting the fractional banking system?
