Posted on 07/19/2013 2:15:15 PM PDT by Errant
For over a month, JPMorgan managed to mysteriously avoid matching up the gold held in its (world's largest) vault with the Comex delivery notice update. However, as of today, that particular can will be kicked no more. Starting yesterday, JPM reported that just under 12,000 ounces of Eligible gold (the same Registered gold that two days earlier saw its warrants detached and convert to eligible) were withdrawn from its warehouse 100 feet below CMP 1. But it was today's move that was the kicker, as a whopping 90,311 ounces of eligible gold were withdrawn, accounting for a massive 66% of the firm's entire inventory of non-Registered gold, and leaving a token 46K ounces, or a little over 1 tonne in JPM's possession.
Needless to say, today's massive move which increasingly puts JPM's gold holdings in the danger zone vis-a-vis future delivery notices which just refuse to stop, has pushed total JPM vault gold to a new all time low of just 436k ounces, or a little under 14k tonnes with just 12 tonnes, or 390k ounces, of Registered gold left and rapidly draining. And to think that two years ago around this time JPM had over 3 million ounces of gold in its possession.
Finally, those who believe there is a connection between the ongoing run on JPM's vault gold, the suppressed price of the metal, the redemption of Bundesbank gold, and the fact that 3M GOFO has now been negative for 10 straight days or the longest period in history it has been below zero, and indicating an unprecedented gold collateral shortage, you are correct.
Finally, putting it all in context, this is what 1 ton of gold looks like in the real world courtesy of Demonocracy:
Coule be a Reflection of all the Gold coated Tungsten Bars that exist....
YOU CAN’T EAT GOLD. THERE WILL BE TIMES WHEN GOLD CANNOT EVEN BUY FOOD. THOSE TIMES ARE A’ COMING.
In the charts, note that the precipitous drops coincide with zero’s reelection.
Reckon the well to do knew something most others didn't?
I’m afraid you’re likely right about those times a’ coming...
they’ve been doing what they can to duress the price... unfortunately, the demand far outstrips their supply.
expect gold to start heading to $2000

Try $600. The world is in a deflationary spiral. Watched China lately?
“Try $600. The world is in a deflationary spiral.”
Did Bernake shut down the printing presses?
Mr. T did have a great physique. It’s easy to overlook that, but he’s really a classic perfect old school muscle man.
$2000 in current dollar valuation
if gold drops to $600, gas would drop from $3.80 to $1.90. I’m pretty sure that’s not happening any time soon
There can be no "deflationary spiral" till the world's central banks stop increasing the money supply. China has not -- what are you talking about?
Plus, from the looks of it, he now owns more gold than JPM!
For the deflation theorists, this is a must listen interview of Harry Dent on Trunews.com last week: http://www.trunews.com/Audio/7_16_13_tuesday_trunews2.mp3
At then end, he even mentions $200. I own at least one of his books. Not too sure how accurate he will be this time. Everyone is predicting trouble ahead at least. So much depends upon what the central banks do. Keep in mind that the FED is in reality a private group of banks. It's in their ultimate interest to protect the only product they have (control of the money supply), regardless of pressure progressives put on them to continue the spending.
I think we're about to find out very soon who wins and who looses - that'll be most of us here probably.
Anyone who sinks enormous amounts of savings to buy years' and years' worth of perishing food is not making a good investment. It only lasts so long....
Supply and demand for everything ultimately determines relative value. If necessary to prop up deflating bank asset values, central banks will print endless supplies of paper money whereas gold, silver, diamonds and other hard assets will remain scarce and tend to far out-value what streams from the printing presses over time. Every fiat currency over thousands of years has failed. The economic laws have not been repealed as digital fiat has replaced paper fiat.
That’s just plumb damn scary. Because it is happening.
