Let us have a look at the data for today

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

IN SILVER THE COMEX OI ROSE BY A MONSTROUS SIZED 5190 CONTRACTS FROM 204,318 UP TO 209,508 DESPITE YESTERDAY’S 26 CENT LOSS IN SILVER PRICING AT THE COMEX. LIQUIDATION OF THE SPREADERS HAVE STOPPED FOR SILVER BUT IT NOW IN FULL FORCE FOR GOLD. TODAY WE ARRIVED CLOSER TO AUGUST’S 2018 RECORD SETTING OPEN INTEREST OF 244,196 CONTRACTS.

WE HAVE ALSO WITNESSED A LARGE AMOUNT OF PHYSICAL METAL STAND FOR COMEX DELIVERY AS WELL WE ARE WITNESSING CONSIDERABLE LONGS PACKING THEIR BAGS AND MIGRATING OVER TO LONDON IN GREATER NUMBERS IN THE FORM OF EFP’S. WE WERE NOTIFIED THAT WE HAD A STRONG SIZED NUMBER OF COMEX LONGS TRANSFERRING THEIR CONTRACTS TO LONDON THROUGH THE EFP:

0 FOR MAY, 0 FOR JUNE, 1368 FOR JULY AND ZERO FOR ALL OTHER MONTHS AND THEREFORE TOTAL ISSUANCE 1368 CONTRACTS. WITH THE TRANSFER OF 1368 CONTRACTS, WHAT THE CME IS STATING IS THAT THERE IS NO SILVER (OR GOLD) TO BE DELIVERED UPON AT THE COMEX AS THEY MUST EXPORT THEIR OBLIGATION TO LONDON. ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT THERE CAN BE A DELAY OF 24-48 HRS IN THE ISSUING OF EFP’S. THE 1368 EFP CONTRACTS TRANSLATES INTO 6.84 MILLION OZ ACCOMPANYING:

1.THE 26 CENT LOSS IN SILVER PRICE AT THE COMEX AND

2. THE STRONG AMOUNT OF SILVER OUNCES WHICH STOOD FOR DELIVERY IN THE LAST NINE MONTHS:

JUNE/2018. (5.420 MILLION OZ);

FOR JULY: 30.370 MILLION OZ

FOR AUG., 6.065 MILLION OZ

FOR SEPT. 39.505 MILLION OZ S

FOR OCT.2.525 MILLION OZ.

FOR NOV: A HUGE 7.440 MILLION OZ STANDING AND

21.925 MILLION OZ FINALLY STAND FOR DECEMBER.

5.845 MILLION OZ STAND IN JANUARY.

2.955 MILLION OZ STANDING FOR FEBRUARY.:

27.120 MILLION OZ STANDING IN MARCH.

3.875 MILLION OZ STANDING FOR SILVER IN APRIL.

AND NOW 18.650 MILLION OZ STANDING FOR SILVER IN MAY.





ACCUMULATION FOR EFP’S/SILVER/J.P.MORGAN’S HOUSE OF BRIBES, / STARTING FROM FIRST DAY NOTICE/FOR MONTH OF MAY:

14,934 CONTRACTS (FOR 13 TRADING DAYS TOTAL 14,934 CONTRACTS) OR 74,67 MILLION OZ: (AVERAGE PER DAY: 1148 CONTRACTS OR 5.743 MILLION OZ/DAY)

TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA AS TO THE HUGE SUPPLY THIS MONTH IN SILVER: SO FAR THIS MONTH OF MAY: 74.67 MILLION PAPER OZ HAVE MORPHED OVER TO LONDON. THIS REPRESENTS AROUND 10.66% OF ANNUAL GLOBAL PRODUCTION (EX CHINA EX RUSSIA)* JUNE’S 345.43 MILLION OZ IS THE SECOND HIGHEST RECORDED ISSUANCE OF EFP’S AND IT FOLLOWED THE RECORD SET IN APRIL 2018 OF 385.75 MILLION OZ.

ACCUMULATION IN YEAR 2019 TO DATE SILVER EFP’S: 815,77 MILLION OZ.

JANUARY 2019 EFP TOTALS: 217.455. MILLION OZ

FEB 2019 TOTALS: 147.4 MILLION OZ/

MARCH 2019 TOTAL EFP ISSUANCE: 207.835 MILLION OZ

APRIL 2019 TOTAL EFP ISSUANCE: 182.87 MILLION OZ.

RESULT: WE HAD A HUGE SIZED INCREASE IN COMEX OI SILVER COMEX CONTRACTS OF 5190 DESPITE THE LARGE 26 CENT LOSS IN SILVER PRICING AT THE COMEX /YESTERDAY... THE CME NOTIFIED US THAT WE HAD A STRONG SIZED EFP ISSUANCE OF 1368 CONTRACTS WHICH EXITED OUT OF THE SILVER COMEX AND TRANSFERRED THEIR OI TO LONDON AS FORWARDS. SPECULATORS CONTINUED THEIR INTEREST IN ATTACKING THE SILVER COMEX FOR PHYSICAL SILVER (SEE COMEX DATA) . OUR BANKERS RESUMED THEIR LIQUIDATION OF THE SPREAD TRADES TODAY.



TODAY WE GAINED A GIGANTIC SIZED: 6558 TOTAL OI CONTRACTS ON THE TWO EXCHANGES:

i.e 1368 OPEN INTEREST CONTRACTS HEADED FOR LONDON (EFP’s) TOGETHER WITH INCREASE OF 5190 OI COMEX CONTRACTS. AND ALL OF THIS DEMAND HAPPENED WITH A 26 CENT LOSS IN PRICE OF SILVER AND A CLOSING PRICE OF $14.55 WITH RESPECT TO YESTERDAY’S TRADING. YET WE STILL HAVE A STRONG AMOUNT OF SILVER STANDING AT THE COMEX FOR DELIVERY!!





In ounces AT THE COMEX, the OI is still represented by JUST OVER 1 BILLION oz i.e. 1.022 BILLION OZ TO BE EXACT or 145% of annual global silver production (ex Russia & ex China).

FOR THE NEW FRONT MARCH MONTH/ THEY FILED AT THE COMEX: 15 NOTICE(S) FOR 75,000 OZ OF SILVER

IN SILVER,PRIOR TO TODAY, WE SET THE NEW COMEX RECORD OF OPEN INTEREST AT 243,411 CONTRACTS ON APRIL 9.2018. AND AGAIN THIS HAS BEEN SET WITH A LOW PRICE OF $16.51.

AND NOW WE RECORD FOR POSTERITY ANOTHER ALL TIME RECORD OPEN INTEREST AT THE COMEX OF 244,196 CONTRACTS ON AUGUST 22/2018 AND AGAIN WHEN THIS RECORD WAS SET, THE PRICE OF SILVER WAS $14.78 AND LOWER IN PRICE THAN PREVIOUS RECORDS.

ON THE DEMAND SIDE WE HAVE THE FOLLOWING:

HUGE AMOUNTS OF SILVER STANDING FOR DELIVERY (MARCH/2018: 27 MILLION OZ , APRIL/2018 : 2.485 MILLION OZ MAY: 36.285 MILLION OZ ; JUNE/2018 (5.420 MILLION OZ) , JULY 2018 FINAL AMOUNT STANDING: 30.370 MILLION OZ ) FOR AUGUST 6.065 MILLION OZ. , SEPT: A HUGE 39.505 MILLION OZ./ OCTOBER: 2,520,000 oz NOV AT 7.440 MILLION OZ./ DEC. AT 21.925 MILLION OZ JANUARY AT 5.825 MILLION OZ.AND FEB 2019: 2.955 MILLION OZ/ MARCH: 27.120 MILLION OZ/ APRIL AT 3.875 MILLION OZ/ AND NOW MAY: 18.650 MILLION OZ ..
HUGE RECORD OPEN INTEREST IN SILVER 243,411 CONTRACTS (OR 1.217 BILLION OZ/ SET APRIL 9/2018) AND NOW AUGUST 22/2018: 244,196 CONTRACTS, WITH A SILVER PRICE OF $14.78.
HUGE ANNUAL EFP’S ISSUANCE EQUAL TO 2.9 BILLION OZ OR 400% OF SILVER ANNUAL PRODUCTION/2017
RECORD SETTING EFP ISSUANCE FOR ANY MONTH IN SILVER; APRIL/2018/ 385.75 MILLION OZ/ AND THE SECOND HIGHEST RECORDED EFP ISSUANCE JUNE 2018 345.43 MILLION OZ

AND YET, WITH THE EXTREMELY HIGH EFP ISSUANCE, WE HAVE A CONTINUAL LOW PRICE OF SILVER DESPITE THE ABOVE HUGE DEMAND. TO ME THE ONLY ANSWER IS THAT WE HAVE SOVEREIGN (CHINA) WHO IS ENDEAVOURING TO GOBBLE UP ALL AVAILABLE PHYSICAL SILVER NO MATTER WHERE, EXACTLY WHAT J.P.MORGAN IS DOING. AND IT IS MY BELIEF THAT J.P.MORGAN IS HOLDING ITS SILVER FOR ITS BENEFICIAL OWNER..THE USA GOVERNMENT WHO IN TURN IS HOLDING THAT SILVER FOR CHINA.(FOR A SILVER LOAN REPAYMENT).



IN GOLD, THE OPEN INTEREST FELL BY A CONSIDERABLE SIZED 3112 CONTRACTS, TO 521,243 DESPITE THE CONSIDERABLE FALL IN THE COMEX GOLD PRICE/(A LOSS IN PRICE OF $11.10//YESTERDAY’S TRADING).

THE CME RELEASED THE DATA FOR EFP ISSUANCE AND IT TOTALED A VERY STRONG SIZED 14,239 CONTRACTS:

APRIL 0 CONTRACTS,JUNE: 14,239 CONTRACTS DECEMBER: 0 CONTRACTS, JUNE 2020 0 CONTRACTS AND ALL OTHER MONTHS ZERO. The NEW COMEX OI for the gold complex rests at 521,243. ALSO REMEMBER THAT THERE WILL BE A DELAY IN THE ISSUANCE OF EFP’S. THE BANKERS REMOVE LONG POSITIONS OF COMEX GOLD IMMEDIATELY. THEN THEY ORCHESTRATE THEIR PRIVATE EFP DEAL WITH THE LONGS AND THAT COULD TAKE AN ADDITIONAL, 48 HRS SO WE GENERALLY DO NOT GET A MATCH WITH RESPECT TO DEPARTING COMEX LONGS AND NEW EFP LONG TRANSFERS. . EVEN THOUGH THE BANKERS ISSUED THESE MONSTROUS EFPS, THE OBLIGATION STILL RESTS WITH THE BANKERS TO SUPPLY METAL BUT IT TRANSFERS THE RISK TO A LONDON BANKER OBLIGATION AND NOT A NEW YORK COMEX OBLIGATION. LONGS RECEIVE A FIAT BONUS TOGETHER WITH A LONG LONDON FORWARD. THUS, BY THESE ACTIONS, THE BANKERS AT THE COMEX HAVE JUST STATED THAT THEY HAVE NO APPRECIABLE METAL!! THIS IS A MASSIVE FRAUD: THEY CANNOT SUPPLY ANY METAL TO OUR COMEX LONGS BUT THEY ARE QUITE WILLING TO SUPPLY MASSIVE NON BACKED GOLD (AND SILVER) PAPER KNOWING THAT THEY HAVE NO METAL TO SATISFY OUR LONGS. LONDON IS NOW SEVERELY BACKWARD IN BOTH GOLD AND SILVER AND WE ARE WITNESSING DELAYS IN ACTUAL DELIVERIES.

IN ESSENCE WE HAVE A VERY STRONG SIZED GAIN IN TOTAL CONTRACTS ON THE TWO EXCHANGES OF 11,127 CONTRACTS: 3112 OI CONTRACTS DECREASED AT THE COMEX AND 14,239 EFP OI CONTRACTS WHICH NAVIGATED OVER TO LONDON. THUS TOTAL OI GAIN OF 11,127 CONTRACTS OR 1,112,700 OZ OR 34.60 TONNES. YESTERDAY WE HAD A LOSS IN THE PRICE OF GOLD TO THE TUNE OF $11.10.…AND WITH LARGE LOSS, WE HAD A HUGE GAIN OF 34.60 TONNES!!!!!!.??????

WITH RESPECT TO SPREADING: WE MAY HAVE HAD SOME ACTIVITY WITH TODAY’S FALL IN PRICE

AS I HAVE MENTIONED IN PREVIOUS COMMENTARIES:

“AS YOU WILL SEE, THE CROOKS HAVE NOW SWITCHED TO GOLD AS THEY INCREASE THE OPEN INTEREST FOR THE SPREADERS. THE TOTAL COMEX GOLD OPEN INTEREST WILL RISE FROM NOW ON UNTIL ONE WEEK PRIOR TO FIRST DAY NOTICE AND THAT IS WHEN THEY START THEIR CRIMINAL LIQUIDATION.

HERE IS HOW THE CROOKS USED SPREADING AS WE ARE NO INTO THE NON ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH OF MAY HEADING TOWARDS THE VERY ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH OF JUNE.

AS I HAVE MENTIONED IN PREVIOUS COMMENTARIES, HERE IS THE BANKERS MODUS OPERANDI:

YOU WILL ALSO NOTICE THAT THE COMEX OPEN INTEREST IS STARTING TO RISE IN THIS NON ACTIVE MONTH OF MAY BUT SO IS THE OPEN INTEREST OF SPREADERS. THE OPEN INTEREST IN GOLD WILL CONTINUE TO RISE UNTIL ONE WEEK BEFORE FIRST DAY NOTICE OF AN UPCOMING ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH (JUNE), AND THAT IS WHEN THE CROOKS SELL THEIR SPREAD POSITIONS BUT NOT AT THE SAME TIME OF THE DAY. THEY WILL USE THE SELL SIDE OF THE EQUATION TO CREATE THE CASCADE (ALONG WITH THEIR COLLUSIVE FRIENDS) AND THEN COVER ON THE BUY SIDE OF THE SPREAD SITUATION AT THE END OF THE DAY. THEY DO THIS TO AVOID POSITION LIMIT DETECTION. THE LIQUIDATION OF THE SPREADING FORMATION CONTINUES FOR EXACTLY ONE WEEK AND ENDS ON FIRST DAY NOTICE.”







ACCUMULATION OF EFP’S GOLD AT J.P. MORGAN’S HOUSE OF BRIBES: (EXCHANGE FOR PHYSICAL) FOR THE MONTH OF MAY : 85,098 CONTRACTS OR 8,509,800 OR 264.69 TONNES (13 TRADING DAYS AND THUS AVERAGING: 6546 EFP CONTRACTS PER TRADING DAY

TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA AS TO THE STRONG SIZE OF THESE EFP TRANSFERS : THIS MONTH IN 13 TRADING DAYS IN TONNES: 264.69 TONNES

TOTAL ANNUAL GOLD PRODUCTION, 2018, THROUGHOUT THE WORLD EX CHINA EX RUSSIA: 3555 TONNES

THUS EFP TRANSFERS REPRESENTS 264.69/3550 x 100% TONNES =7.43% OF GLOBAL ANNUAL PRODUCTION SO FAR IN DECEMBER ALONE.***

ACCUMULATION OF GOLD EFP’S YEAR 2019 TO DATE: 2080.23 TONNES

JANUARY 2019 TOTAL EFP ISSUANCE; 531.20 TONNES

FEB 2019 TOTAL EFP ISSUANCE: 344.36 TONNES

MARCH 2019 TOTAL EFP ISSUANCE: 497.16 TONNES

APRIL 2019 TOTAL ISSUANCE: 456.10 TONNES





WHAT IS ALARMING TO ME, ACCORDING TO OUR LONDON EXPERT ANDREW MAGUIRE IS THAT THESE EFP’S ARE BEING TRANSFERRED TO WHAT ARE CALLEDRIAL FORWARD CONTRACT OBLIGATIONS AND THESE CONTRACTS ARE LESS THAN 14 DAYS. ANYTHING GREATER THAN 14 DAYS, THESE MUST BE RECORDED AND SENT TO THE COMPTROLLER, GREAT BRITAIN TO MONITOR RISK TO THE BANKING SYSTEM. IF THIS IS INDEED TRUE, THEN THIS IS A MASSIVE CONSPIRACY TO DEFRAUD AS WE NOW WITNESS A MONSTROUS TOTAL EFP’S ISSUANCE AS IT HEADS INTO THE STRATOSPHERE.





Result: A CONSIDERABLE SIZED DECREASE IN OI AT THE COMEX OF 3112 DESPITE THE LARGE FALL IN PRICING ($11.10) THAT GOLD UNDERTOOK YESTERDAY) //.WE ALSO HAD A MONSTROUS SIZED NUMBER OF COMEX LONG TRANSFERRING TO LONDON THROUGH THE EFP ROUTE: 14,239 CONTRACTS AS THESE HAVE ALREADY BEEN NEGOTIATED AND CONFIRMED. THERE OBVIOUSLY DOES NOT SEEM TO BE MUCH PHYSICAL GOLD AT THE COMEX. I GUESS IT EXPLAINS THE HUGE ISSUANCE OF EFP’S…THERE IS HARDLY ANY GOLD PRESENT AT THE GOLD COMEX FOR DELIVERY PURPOSES. IF YOU TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE 14,239 EFP CONTRACTS ISSUED, WE HAD A STRONG SIZED GAIN OF 11,127 CONTRACTS IN TOTAL OPEN INTEREST ON THE TWO EXCHANGES:

14,239 CONTRACTS MOVE TO LONDON AND 3112 CONTRACTS DECREASED AT THE COMEX. (IN TONNES, THE GAIN IN TOTAL OI EQUATES TO 34.60 TONNES). ..AND THIS HUMONGOUS DEMAND OCCURRED DESPITE THE FALL IN PRICE OF $11.10 IN YESTERDAY’S TRADING AT THE COMEX.WE MAY HAVE HAD A STRONG PRESENCE OF SPREADING TODAY IN THE RAID ORCHESTRATED BY THE CROOKS.







we had: 2 notice(s) filed upon for 200 oz of gold at the comex.



xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

With respect to our two criminal funds, the GLD and the SLV:

GLD...



WITH GOLD DOWN $9.70 TODAY

NO CHANGE IN GOLD INVENTORY AT THE GLD/













INVENTORY RESTS AT 733.23 TONNES





TO ALL INVESTORS THINKING OF BUYING GOLD THROUGH THE GLD ROUTE: YOU ARE MAKING A TERRIBLE MISTAKE AS THE CROOKS ARE USING WHATEVER GOLD COMES IN TO ATTACK BY SELLING THAT GOLD. IT SURE SEEMS TO ME THAT THE GOLD OBLIGATIONS AT THE GLD EXCEED THEIR INVENTORy

SLV/

WITH SILVER DOWN 13 CENTS TODAY:

A HUGE 3.186 MILLION OZ WITHDRAWAL OF PAPER SILVER FORM THE SLV.

THIS PAPER SILVER WAS USED IN THE ATTACK TODAY.















/INVENTORY RESTS AT 312.366 MILLION OZ.





end

First, here is an outline of what will be discussed tonight:

1. Today, we had the open interest in SILVER ROSE BY A HUMONGOUS SIZED 5284 CONTRACTS from 204,318 UPTO 209,602 AND CLOSER TO THE NEW COMEX RECORD SET LAST IN AUG.2018 AT 244,196 WITH A SILVER PRICE OF $14.78/(AUGUST 22/2018)..THE PREVIOUS RECORD WAS SET ON APRIL 9/2018 AT 243,411 OPEN INTEREST CONTRACTS WITH THE SILVER PRICE AT THAT DAY: $16.53). AND PREVIOUS TO THAT, THE RECORD WAS ESTABLISHED AT: 234,787 CONTRACTS, SET ON APRIL 21.2017 OVER 1 1/3 YEARS AGO. THE PRICE OF SILVER ON THAT DAY: $17.89. AS YOU CAN SEE, WE HAVE RECORD HIGH OPEN INTERESTS IN SILVER ACCOMPANIED BY A CONTINUAL LOWER PRICE WHEN THAT RECORD WAS SET…..THE SPREADERS HAVE STOPPED THEIR LIQUIDATION IN SILVER BUT HAVE NOW MORPHED INTO GOLD..









EFP ISSUANCE:

OUR CUSTOMARY MIGRATION OF COMEX LONGS CONTINUE TO MORPH INTO LONDON FORWARDS AS OUR BANKERS USED THEIR EMERGENCY PROCEDURE TO ISSUE:



0 CONTRACTS FOR APRIL., 0 FOR MAY, FOR JUNE 0 CONTRACTS AND JULY: 1368 CONTRACTS AND ALL OTHER MONTHS: ZERO. TOTAL EFP ISSUANCE: 1368 CONTRACTS. EFP’S GIVE OUR COMEX LONGS A FIAT BONUS PLUS A DELIVERABLE PRODUCT OVER IN LONDON. IF WE TAKE THE OI GAIN AT THE COMEX OF 5190 CONTRACTS TO THE 1368 OI TRANSFERRED TO LONDON THROUGH EFP’S, WE OBTAIN A HUGE GAIN OF 6558 OPEN INTEREST CONTRACTS. THUS IN OUNCES, THE GAIN ON THE TWO EXCHANGES: 32.79 MILLION OZ!!! AND YET WE ALSO HAVE A STRONG DEMAND FOR PHYSICAL AS WE WITNESSED A FINAL STANDING OF GREATER THAN 30 MILLION OZ FOR JULY, A STRONG 7.475 MILLION OZ FOR AUGUST.. A HUGE 39.505 MILLION OZ STANDING FOR SILVER IN SEPTEMBER… OVER 2 million OZ STANDING FOR THE NON ACTIVE MONTH OF OCTOBER., 7.440 MILLION OZ FINALLY STANDING IN NOVEMBER. 21.925 MILLION OZ STANDING IN DECEMBER , 5.845 MILLION OZ STANDING IN JANUARY. 2.955 MILLION OZ STANDING IN FEBRUARY, 27.120 MILLION OZ FOR MARCH., 3.875 MILLION OZ FOR APRIL AND NOW 18.650 MILLION OZ FOR MAY





RESULT: A HUGE SIZED INCREASE IN SILVER OI AT THE COMEX DESPITE THE 26 CENT LOSS IN PRICING THAT SILVER UNDERTOOK IN PRICING// YESTERDAY. WE ALSO HAD A STRONG SIZED 1368 EFP’S ISSUED TRANSFERRING COMEX LONGS OVER TO LONDON. TOGETHER WITH THE STRONG SIZED AMOUNT OF SILVER OUNCES STANDING FOR THIS MONTH, DEMAND FOR PHYSICAL SILVER CONTINUES TO INTENSIFY AS WE WITNESS SEVERE BACKWARDATION IN SILVER IN LONDON.

BOTH THE SILVER COMEX AND THE GOLD COMEX ARE IN STRESS AS THE BANKERS SCOUR THE BOWELS OF THE EXCHANGE FOR METAL

Let us head over to the comex:



THE TOTAL COMEX GOLD OPEN INTEREST FELL BY A CONSIDERABLE SIZED 3112 CONTRACTS TO A LEVEL OF 521,243 DESPITE THE CONSIDERABLE FALL IN THE PRICE OF GOLD ($11.10) IN YESTERDAY’S // COMEX TRADING)

TOTAL EFP ISSUANCE: 14,239 CONTRACTS.

THE OBLIGATION STILL RESTS WITH THE BANKERS ON THESE TRANSFERS. ALSO REMEMBER THAT THERE IS NO DOUBT A HUGE DELAY IN THE ISSUANCE OF EFP’S AND IT PROBABLY TAKES AT LEAST 48 HRS AFTER LONGS GIVE UP THEIR COMEX CONTRACTS FOR THEM TO RECEIVE THEIR EFP’S AS THEY ARE NEGOTIATING THIS CONTRACT WITH THE BANKS FOR A FIAT BONUS PLUS THEIR TRANSFER TO A LONDON BASED FORWARD.

ON A NET BASIS IN OPEN INTEREST WE GAINED THE FOLLOWING TODAY ON OUR TWO EXCHANGES: 11,127 TOTAL CONTRACTS IN THAT 14,239 LONGS WERE TRANSFERRED AS FORWARDS TO LONDON AND WE LOST A CONSIDERABLE SIZED 3112 COMEX CONTRACTS.

It was another heady auction night in New York.

Minutes after Robert Rauschenberg’s painting Buffalo II fetched $88.8 million at Christie’s — almost five times the late artist’s previous auction record — Jeff Koons’s sculpture of an inflatable silver bunny topped that at $91.1 million, the most ever paid for a work by a living artist at auction.

The Koons led Christie’s postwar and contemporary art sale today, which totalled $539 million, up 36 percent from a year ago. The evening saw seven new artist records, with a $32.1 million spider sculpture by Louise Bourgeois joining Koons and Rauschenberg.



The 1986 Rabbit was bought by art dealer Bob Mnuchin, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s father, who was in the midtown Manhattan salesroom and said he made the purchase on behalf of a client. Estimated at $50 million to $70 million, it was part of a group of works consigned by the family of late media mogul Si Newhouse. …

Canadian miner Iamgold Corp. is exploring a possible sale of all or part of the company amid a wave of consolidation in the gold sector, according to people familiar with the matter.

The Toronto-based miner is working with advisers and has spoken to several potential buyers, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the matter is private.

Iamgold’s plans could still change and there’s no guarantee it would succeed in selling itself, the people said.

A representative for Iamgold declined to comment. …

This is going to help a little in our manipulation of the precious metals as the futures exchange are introducing a speed bump to stop front running by our HFT traders.

Futures Exchange To Introduce Gold, Silver “Speed Bump” To End HFT Manipulation

No sooner had we covered the battle of high frequency traders physically moving infrastructure and microwave towers to gain nanosecond advantages, that we learned that Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) has planned on launching the first ever “speed bump” for the US futures market that would negate some of these advantages. Despite two of the CFTC’s five commissioners disagreeing with the decision, the exchange still looks set to impose a split second delay on some trades, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Those not in favor of the decision claim that the “speed bump” would unfairly punish firms that rely on their speed advantage. Those in favor, say that it’s about time someone did something to stop the HFTs from frontrunning everyone in the futures market. Which is also why some of the largest high frequency trading firms are vocally opposed to the plan.

As part of the proposed speed bump, the ICE is looking to introduce a 3 millisecond pause before executing some trades in its gold and silver futures contracts. Trading in those contracts is relatively tiny, as most gold and silver futures trades take place at the CME Group. However, traders have been watching this decision because of the precedent it could set.



The CFTC had a chance to block the proposal within 90 days, but that period ended on Tuesday. Now, ICE is free to do as it pleases. The CFTC’s Division of Market Oversight said it’s going to watch carefully to analyze the impact of the new “speed bump” saying it “does not view the certification of the ICE Rule as establishing a precedent with respect to the legal and policy merits of speed bump functionalities generally.”

Other attempts to create similar “speed bumps” at other exchanges will be assessed on individual merits, according to the Division. Both a Democratic and Republican commissioner issued objections to the decision. The Republican cited Kurt Vonnegut’s short story “Harrison Bergeron”, where the government forces handicaps on talented people to create a level playing field, in his dissent.

Republican Brian Quintenz said: “Those that invent, and invest in, faster information transmission technologies to capitalize on market dislocations reap the profits of their advantage. That process enhances market efficiency.”

ICE hasn’t given a timeline for when they are going to implement the “speed bump”. The exchange commented: “We are very pleased with the CFTC’s decision to allow our rule amendment for passive order protection—or what is commonly referred to as a speed bump—in futures markets to become effective.”

HFT giants like Citadel Securities LLC and DRW Holdings LLC, which make the bulk of their revenue from frontrunning slower retail and “dumb money whale” orders, were opposed to the idea, along with trade group Managed Funds Association, which represents hedge funds. Stephen Berger, global head of government and regulatory policy for Citadel Securities said: “We appreciate the commission’s confirmation that today’s rule change is limited in scope to two specific contracts and that any future expansion will require a new rule filing and legal analysis.”



The best hot take on the speed bump belonged to Tom McClellan, who said that “high-frequency algo traders spent all that money, locating their offices closer to ICE server farms and buying high-speed fiber connections to get an edge on trading, and now ICE is introducing a 3-millisecond delay trying to level the playing field.”


First ‘Speed Bump’ Coming to U.S. Futures Markets

The ICE futures exchange is set to blunt the advantages of ultrafast traders by imposing a split-second delay on some trades.

Which also explains why they are all so furious.

Several smaller firms welcomed the idea, however, claiming it would allow greater competition. HFT firms now have to spend significant amounts of capital to shave millionths of a second off their trades. Large firms have built out microwave infrastructure and have jostled to get close to exchanges to find minuscule advantages, as we have profiled in the past.

The “bump” is set to apply to incoming orders seeking to hit unexecuted buy or sell orders already posted on ICE, while traders posting new orders to be displayed on the exchange won’t be affected. Eric Swanson, head of the Americas unit of XTX Markets said: “By negating costly HFT speed advantages at millisecond time frames, ICE’s speed bump will reduce the indirect operational tax on end users.”

Still, some critics claim that the delay could actually cause more volatility in periods of market turmoil.

DRW founder and Chief Executive Donald Wilson Jr. said: “During episodes of volatility, there would be essentially fake liquidity on the screen. I think that’s a very dangerous thing.”

Due to the criminal conviction of trader Edmonds, the USA prosecution is seeking to halt the civil lawsuit. I was misinformed: all discoveries in a civil suit are public and because of that, the prosecution gives the defendants the right to plead the 5th if their testimony incriminates them

Notably crude and inflation breakevens decoupled late in the week…
