It seems that Shanghai pricing is higher than the other two , (NY and London). The spread has been occurring on a regular basis and thus I expect to see arbitrage happening as investors buy the lower priced NY gold and sell to China at the higher price. This should drain the comex.
Also why would mining companies hand in their gold to the comex and receive constantly lower prices. They would be open to lawsuits if they knowingly continue to supply the comex despite the fact that they could be receiving higher prices in Shanghai.
For comex gold:
the total number of notices filed today : 758 for 75,800 oz (2.35 tonnes)
for the Oct contract month: 1 notices for 5,000 oz.
today was nothing but criminal activity with a massive drive by shooting. This is occurring because the regulators are on the side of the bankers. China is back tonight and will bring the price of gold/silver back to normal.
