Bullion offered as deliverable inventories at the COMEX has dropped to new lows.
As a reminder, tomorrow is option expiration for gold and silver.
This evening Harvey Organ notes that:
"Tonight, the Comex registered or dealer gold lowers in inventory to 1.359 million oz or 42.27 tonnes. This is still dangerously low. The total of all gold at the Comex rose sightly to 7.681 million oz or 238.9 tonnes of gold.
JPMorgan's customer inventory remains constant tonight at 141,197.86 oz or 4.39 tonnes. Its dealer inventory also remains constant at 408,709.033 oz but it still must settle upon contracts issued in the June delivery month which far exceeds its inventory.
The total of the three major gold bullion dealers (Scotia , HSBC and JPMorgan) in their gold Comex dealer account registers only 27.76 tonnes of gold."
