The price take-down in gold and silver is 100% a product of the trading activity – aided and abetted by the bullion banks in NY and London, who manipulate the price in the paper derivative market. All of the trading activity dictating this sell-off is occurring in the paper derivative markets – it has nothing to do with the economics of the physical gold and silver markets.
How do I know this? Consider that 404,000 Comex December paper gold contracts contracts traded on Wednesday. That’s equivalent to 1,262.5 tonnes of gold. That’s roughly 42% of the total amount of gold that will be mined in 2020. In other words nearly half a year’s worth of physically mined gold traded in one day in just one contract month.
The ONLY physical gold and silver that is transacting is at the London price fix. And it’s dubious as to whether or not physical gold and silver is actually changing hands. Most of the “settlement” occurs digitally and gold and silver do not physically change possession. It’s a bigger scam than pet rocks.
At some point the coming market, economic and political turmoil will trigger a big bid for gold and silver which in turn will translate into a big move higher for the mining stocks.
