The broken wall, the burning roof and tower
And Agamemnon dead."
W. B. Yeats, Leda and the Swan
"When clouds appear, wise men put on their cloaks;
When great leaves fall, the winter is at hand;
When the sun sets, who doth not look for night?...
Bloody thou art; bloody will be thy end."
William Shakespeare, Richard III
"As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man,
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began:
That the Dog returns to his Vomit, and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;
And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing, and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!"
Rudyard Kipling, The Gods of the Copybook Headings
They are still not showing the ounces being delivered out of the Comex warehouses to standing February contracts.
It is thin on deliverables, not as thin as it had been, but it will be getting thinner.
Let's see what happens.
Have a pleasant evening.
