After issuing his Buy Signal on Gold, Arthur reports the new historical all-time-high leverage at COMEX with 112 potential owners for each one ounce of Gold!
Arthur Cutten: JPM Holds the Whip Hand on the Comex - Gold Buy Signal GLD, MUX, TNR.v, GDX
"Arthur Cutten has issued his Buy Signal on Gold. He has a very conservative approach and his article speaks for itself."Glenn Beck: Where Is German Gold? GLD, TNR.v, MUX, GDX
"Glenn Beck is digging up the mystery of German Gold repatriation. With the reports that even small amount of the delivered Gold so far was melted beforehand we can be sure that there is no more original German Gold left. As we have discussed before, the Gold smashing down has started with Venezuela's request for Gold to be returned back and last year Gold's bloodbath was assured with Germany seeking for its Gold to be returned as well."
Jesse's Cafe Americain:
Comex Warehouse Potential Claims Per Deliverable Ounce Rises to Historical High 112 to 1
"The false man is more false to himself than to any one else. He may despoil others, but himself is the chief loser. The world's scorn he might sometimes forget, but the knowledge of his own perfidy is undying."
An almost shocking decline in deliverable (registered) gold has taken the ratio of open interest to deliverable gold to 112 to 1.
This is not a default scenario since the supply of eligible gold in the warehouses remains adequate and at historically manageable levels as shown in the last chart below.
Rather, it suggests that higher prices will be required to persuade more bullion owners to place their inventory up for delivery.
That higher price, of course depends on who those owners are, and how motivated they might be by profits from their metals trades. For some interested parties it is enough to be the very close friends of the Central Banks, with benefits that make them incredibly rich, self-satisfied, and occasionally audacious to the point of over-reaching.
But of course, it is well to remember that the Comex has become the tail wagging the dog, as the gold bullion markets have shifted to the East.
February may be an interesting month, in an interesting year.
Weighed, and found wanting.
Stand and deliver.
