JPMorgan Parts With Another 21,000 Ounces Of Gold, Holdings Drop To New Record Low

Tyler Durden's picture


Those tens of thousands of outstanding delivery requests against JPM are finally starting to make their way through the pipeline: following the withdrawal of 28,380 ounces of gold after nearly one month of radiosilence out of the vault located below 1 CMP, today the CME reported that another 21k troy ounces of eligible gold were withdrawn from the bank (coupled with the reallocation of another 8.8K registered into eligible), taking the total to a fresh record low of 767,752 ounces.

In the meantime the delivery notices keep climbing, and in the month of June, JPM accounts for over 80% of all delivery activity:

Of course, with disclaimers such as this from the Comex...

American dissidents, the Liberty Movement etc. often say that it is something like the truth behind the 11 September 2001 attack, that will finally wake up Americans to accept that USA government is a fascist fraud

But sometimes I think that the day Americans really 'wake up', is the day they find out, there really is no gold in Fort Knox or in the cellar of the New York Federal Reserve

That is when Americans will understand ... the oligarchs stole all the gold, the people's gold, and the country and system really are bankrupt

And then the American system will fall, overnight, like the old Soviet Union

Funny quote from somebody in Kentucky familiar with the Fort Knox operation ... said the only gold there, was in the teeth of some of the security guards

I say they won't give a fuck,

the day they find walmart empty and Dancing with the Tards off the air is the day they'll wake up and peer over the obese belly of apathy hanging off their fluoridated rib cages and realize they're completely fucked.

Obama could literally read "Gold is for terrorists so we proudly have no gold anymore in Fort Knox!" and the dumbfucks would cheer at their Hopium and beg for more change.

Yep... As I said the other day, a commodity exchange that settles in anything (FRNs included) other than the underlying commodity is nothing but a gambling parlor.  There is a problem with my own analogy however.  Namely that when I wager at the track, they settle in the same currency with which I placed my bet.  If they settled in, let's say Skittles, their future as an ongoing concern would be highly dubious.

Anyone think the future of Crimex is anything other than dubious?  This ends poorly.

Tyler, I could not find the mentioned 21k ounces withdrawn from JPM for that day in the CME report. All I can see is 0 ounces withdrawn, 0 ounces received (that is, 0 ounces net) and 996 ounces reallocated in the opposite direction, from eligible into registered. The total reserve of 767,752 ounces is ok.

Any idea what's gone on out there?

Such truth would most likely not make it into mainstream headlines. Even if it did, most Americans would turn the channel to The Bachelorette, Pretty Little Liars, Mad Men etc..the only thing that would cause the average American to to "wake up" is $10/gallon gasonline.

If you think about the bailouts, and the undisclosed activity at the Fed discount window just after the Lehaman collapse (still need a Fed Reserve audit to confirm this...just going with my gut on this), I believe JPM has been made whole at the tax payers' expense already...more than once.

i pressed once bit it gave an up arrow of four. that's kinda cool. listen...the Big Picture as they what folks?...???? HOW TO PAY FOR A WAR...yes, yes? by definition this is a conflict of limited scope and limited duration (and we just got the surprises to day in our National Security News to prove it. HEADLINES PEOPLE! HEADLINES!) the BEST way to pay for a war is with gold money. PERIOD. Teddy Roosevelt is STILL p/o he "didn't go bigger in 1898." Cuba? hehehehe. sure...the Phillipines too. Oh, well! "Wall Street won." hmmm. imagine that. Shall we broach the subject of Total War? Dear, God! "no gold standard whatsoever"! end of the world as we knew, know, will forever know? NOPE. "this one is TOTALLY DIFFERENT" however. in it middle?...of it...Wall Street "was collapsed." that doesn't strike me as the "Usual Storyline" here. is JPM on the ropes? i wasn't big the Banks after the collapse because i have a "there you go again" problem with Large Institutions. Well...i wish i could say i was disappointed...nay, London Whale. That would be JUST prior to said "plan" being executed on. Did i recommend "going in for the kill" because i was right back then? nay..."they will win." and indeed JPM has had a stellar track record ever since. wow, what a buying opportunity. is it time to go in "with both fists here"? i think anyone who does that is totally CRAZY myself. but again...I'M A BULL...but hopefully not a totally stupid one. "so let's see how my latest call" (and answer) "pans out." (and yeah, disablevet is a financial panner as they say. although no one will ever say i lost billions and trillions either...
