Market Manipulation Mechanics Explained, Tight Physical Silver & Silver Gold Relationship

King World

“It is so tight, the silver market is so tight that we’ve been waiting three weeks plus, before this takedown, for deliveries of size to arrive.  I’m talking about tonnage orders.  This is also key, most of the silver being delivered was refined after the orders had been placed, and again, that was before the takedown.  You can just imagine how long the wait times will be going forward.”
There isn’t enough silver for investors to buy (in large amounts) so they have been using SLV as a flywheel.  SLV is over 20 million ounces short on the silver they are supposed to have in the vaults to back the shares which have been issued.  The silver isn’t there.
Part of managing the price of silver recently has been for the central banks to attack the gold market.
So, in order for the bullion banks to maximize the effect of the physical gold they get from leasing, they add high scale paper leverage.  They then short-sell just enough tranches of COMEX contracts to surgically take out three important support pivots....
“Each of those important support pivots that everyone is watching, like the 50 day moving average and so on, each one of those are taken out in the access market in the quiet trading, overnight, on three successive days.  In other words, they take out these three important pivots, which turns the momentum buyers into sellers.  It also gets a bunch of funds to start selling as well.
So using as little ammunition (physical gold) as possible, and in thinly traded markets, they take out these pivots.  They smash the price, but leave just enough physical gold for going into the fixes because the smart buyers are saying, ‘I’ll take it at this price.’  So, as we go into the fix, they’ve provided just enough physical to satisfy as many of those buyers as they can.  They then smash it right after the fix, again, with paper.
It’s a sign of absolute desperation when central banks are willing to risk giving bullion banks gold they will never, ever receive back.
These central banks had to be in desperation to allow this borrowed gold to be absorbed by foreign entities.  They needed to raise dollars in a hurry and they are extremely afraid of gold going through the roof.  I was very, very surprised they got as far as they did (driving gold lower).  They had to use an awful lot of gold to do it.”
