The Amount of Silver To Cover COMEX Short Positions is Nearly a Half a Year of Global Silver Mining Production.

We recently published a two part series on gold and silver manipulation.

Part one covered the suspected manipulation that occurs in the gold and silver market.

Part two covered actual examples of gold and silver manipulation by U.S. Presidents, the U.S. Congress and the U.S. Treasury.

Part one of our gold and silver manipulation series reported on the massive naked short selling of silver and gold that occurs on COMEX allegedly to suppress the prices of those metals.

According to the following chart, the number of days of global silver production required to cover the aggregate silver short positions of the eight largest traders on COMEX is 160 days, or nearly a half a year’s production! The chart shows that the other precious metals (gold, platinum and palladium) have similarly large open short positions.

The largest traders of gold and silver bullion are the bullion banks – Barclays, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, JPMorganChase, Merrill Lynch/Bank of America, Mitsui, Societe Generale, Bank of Nova Scotia and UBS.
