The Open Interest Is The Problem, It Controls The Price!
The Open Interest Is The Problem, It Controls The Price! by J. Johnson for JSMineset
Gold is higher in our earliest morning report with the trade at $1,552.30, up $7.70 after starting from a low at $1,546.50 with the high near by at $1,554.70. Silver is following along with the trade at $17.840 up 9.8 cents with its starting point at $17.770 with the high at $17.920. The US Dollar may be getting a nose bleed from its lofty height with the trade at 96.985, down 10.9 points with the high at 97.180 and the low nearby at 96.955. Of course all this was done before 5 am pst, the Comex open, the London close, and after another not so convincing Democratic debate occurred where a socialist is claiming “rigged” who also ignored the Veritas exposure.
Venezuela’s Bolivar now has Gold valued at 15,503.60 Bolivar showing a much steeper climb than the last 2 day’s pullback recovering 85.90 overnight with Silver gaining 0.849 Bolivar, recovering very little from yesterday’s price drop. In Argentina, Gold is now valued at 93,136.31 proving the recovery of 695.03 A-Peso’s regaining all this past week loses and then some, with Silver only gaining back 7.07 A-Peso’s with the trade at 1,070.39. The Turkish Lira has Gold priced at 9,137.95 Lira recovering 41.52 T-Lira which was more than yesterday’s pullback but nowhere near Monday’s drop off with Silver at 105.017 regaining only 0.403 of a T-Lira. Gold’s recovering price swings may be predictive, stay tooned!
January Silver Delivery Demands now show a count of 23 fully paid for contracts waiting for receipts and with 0 Volume posted so far this morning proving an increase of 13 more purchases during Tuesday’s trade. Yesterday’s Delivery Month trading range didn’t budge one inch as the Volume jumped from 2 to 17. So, the delivery month had a 2-cent swing ($17.875 – $17.855) with 15 additional purchases, all the while the (February and) March Contract(s) traded well below the delivery months prices, yet the Comex closed the Delivery price at $17.674, hmmm. Said another way, the delivery month has been trading higher than the futures contracts, and it has been going on for a while. In the old days (and maybe just ahead?), this type of action would stress a “shortage” of product to deliver. Of note, that was before Algo’s took over and this giant amount of “new paper” that has been applied to the price.
