JP Morgan Loses 45% Of Registered Gold Stock In One Day


 -- Published: Wednesday, 16 September 2015 | Print  | Disqus 

By Steve St. Angelo, SRSrocco Report

While the drain of COMEX gold and silver Registered inventories continues as demand for physical precious metals increases, JP Morgan experienced a 45% decline of its Registered Gold Inventories in one day.  JP Morgan now only has a lousy 10,777 oz of gold remaining in its Registered gold inventories.

Basically, JP Morgan holds 1/3 metric ton of gold in its Registered inventories.  This is the reason we are seeing the paper gold ratio on the COMEX above the 250/1 ratio.  If we look at the COMEX warehouse table below, we can see just how little Registered Gold remains on the exchange:

COMEX-Gold-091515

Not only did JP Morgan suffer a 45% reduction (8,941 oz) of its Registered Gold inventories, it also experienced a 122,124 oz withdrawal from its Eligible stocks.   We must remember, its JP Morgan’s Registered Inventories that are available for delivery into the market, not its Eligible.

Currently, the COMEX holds a total of 163,334 oz (5 metric tons) of gold in its Registered inventories for ALL BANKS… LOL. 

COMEX Silver Registered Inventories Plunged Again Today

If you read my article, Stunning Development in the U.S. Silver Market, you would have seen this chart below:

RATE-OF-CHANGE-Comex-Registered-Silver-Inventories

As of yesterday, there were 50.4 million oz (Moz) of silver stored as Registered inventories at the COMEX warehouses.  What is interesting about the current drain of COMEX Registered silver inventories, is that its average monthly decline rate of 4 Moz (per month) is more than double the previous decline from March 2010 to July 2011 of 1.8 Moz per month.

For whatever reason, the Registered silver inventories are declining at a much faster pace than they were during the huge price spike in 2011, even though the price of silver is trading at $14-$15 while industrial silver demand is falling.

Today’s COMEX silver warehouse update was another whopper:

COMEX-Silver-091515

While the exchange experienced a net 450,657 oz deposit of silver, the important figures to focus on are the decline in Registered inventories.  Brinks transferred 568,092 Registered silver to its Eligible category and the CNT Depository withdrew 601,231 oz for a total of 1,169,324 oz.

The total Registered silver inventories at the COMEX are now at 48.6 Moz compared to a high of 70.5 Moz in April.  As I stated above, the average monthly decline rate of silver out of the COMEX Registered was 4 Moz.  However, in one day it fell nearly 1.2 Moz.

With India importing record amounts of silver as well as the huge surge of physical silver investment demand, it is putting stress on the 1,000 oz wholesale market.  It will be interesting to see the Fed rate hike decision on Thursday and its impact on the precious metals.

If the Fed raises or keeps rates the same, I believe we will continue to see more stress on the wholesale precious metals market.  We live in interesting times.
