Is JP Morgan Getting Nervous about its Silver Inventories?

Something interesting has been going on in the Comex silver warehouse inventories this week.  Not only have large amounts of silver been removed from the Comex since Monday, but there also have been some large transfers that seem quite peculiar.

In the beginning of the week, there was a large 2.2 million oz withdrawal of silver from the Comex.  However, part of this amount was transferred to JP Morgan:

COMEX SILVER 72213B

Here we can see that Scotia Mocatta transferred nearly 600,000 oz of silver from its Registered inventory to JP Morgan’s Eligible.  Basically, the registered category is silver that is available for delivery and is also labeled as the dealer inventory.  The eligible category is silver owned by an individual or party that is not available for delivery and is known as the customer inventory.

Now, on Tuesday we had another large withdrawal of silver from the Comex but the majority of it came from Scotia Mocatta’s warehouse.  And again, if we look at the spreadsheet below, we can see another large transfer of silver from Scotia’s registered inventory to JP Morgan’s eligible:

COMEX SILVER 72313

So, we had 600,000 oz transferred on Monday and another 600,350 oz on Wednesday for a total of 1.2+ million oz in  just two days.  I find this quite interesting because JP Morgan has a substantial amount of silver in its eligible inventories of over 20 million oz.

Then on Thursday, there was another large transfer of silver from Scotia to JP Morgan:

COMEX SILVER 72513

In three days, Scotia Mocatta transferred 1.8 million oz of silver from its registered inventories to JP Morgan’s eligible inventories. Furthermore, a total of 2.7 million oz of silver were withdrawn from the Comex (net of transfers) and Scotia Mocatta saw its registered silver inventories decline nearly 20%.

The real question is… what’s going on here.  Could this be just a typical transfer of metal from one bank to another?  Or could it be that an individual or party has transferred their silver from Canada to the U.S.?  Those are all probable answers.

However, we really don’t know what is going on here as everything in the Banking Industry is a big secret.  All we can do is speculate.  I wrote Harvey Organ and asked him what he thought of these transfers.  He replied be saying it could be that JP Morgan is building physical supplies to hand in against delivery notices.

While the more professional traders and Wall Street analysts would blow off these silver transfers as part of doing a honest days business… there really isn’t much honesty left in the banking community.  For example, we just learned of new govt. probe into Goldman and JP Morgan’s warehouse industry via ZeroHedge:

Goldman And JP Morgan Probed Over Metals Warehouse Manipulations

Following our initial uncovering of the manipulation and monopolization of the metals warehousing business two years ago, the last few days have seen the public’s attention grabbed by the reality of what the banks are actually doing. Following this week’s hearing, as the Fed reconsiders banks roles in non-banking businesses (and the ‘societal benefit’), it seems the CFTC has woken up. As the WSJ reports, the Department of Justice has opened an initial probe into the metals warehousing industry and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission has also sent letters to some firms telling them to preserve documents, in what is likely the beginning stages of an investigation.

With this and all the other conspiracies and frauds taking place such as the LIBOR scandal and etc, I actually believe something is AMISS and there is  probably something STRANGE taking place in JP Morgan’s silver warehouse.  I wish I could shed more light, but at least I can reveal what is taking place and we will have to see how this unfolds in the future.

if the SLV inventory and Comex inventory are essentially the same stock, when jp morgan gradually accumulate SLV shares, these adjustments probably make sense.

plus, these are probably paper adjustments too.

Silver inventory at shanghai futures exchange dropped under 600 tons.
Silver inventory at shanghai gold exchange dropped under 30 tons last week, normally its around 50-60 tons.

i still can’t believe given all that’s going on, prices are still where they are.

i have these bastards!

I suggest you not turning to Harvey Organ for advice. He has little understanding of the delivery process.
JP Morgan has been taking delivery of silver this month.
http://www.cmegroup.com/delivery_reports/MetalsIssuesAndStopsYTDReport.pdf
2733 contracts, 13,665,000 oz as of today. JPM moved some of the silver it took delivery of to its own vault.

Die Leute,so sie noch Papierwechsel auf Edelmetalle halten werden sich bald wundern wenn sie wie bei der Bank ABM AMRO mit bunten Zetteln abgespeist werden und ihre Gold und Silber Ersparnisse in Papier auflösen !

I can’t help to have this feeling that everyone looking at the silver manipulation is looking in the wrong direction. So far everything has been 100% unintuitive as far a the silver price goes..Silver falling below $25 would cause chaos and all hell would break loose that never happened (Future Money Trends). Fall below 20 and miners would go out of business and there would be massive shortage etc. None of this has even come close to happening. I know the information is solid but there is still something we are all missing. Silver was at 4 bucks for years… Read more »

Scratching the Surface; Something to think about when the metal warehouse issue is discussed. Aluminum. For a number of years now some big users of aluminum, namely the beverage sector (beer & soda), have complained bitterly of the lengthy (up to one year) delays in delivery of aluminum contracts. These are no small potatoes – Coka-Cola, Anhuaser – Busch, etc. This stems directly from the TBTF banks owning the metals warehousing sector of the LME. Some background; J.P. Morgan is put on the MF Global bankruptcy committee on November 7, 2011. Just two weeks later J.P. Morgan buys MF Global’s… Read more »
