Precious Metals Puke - 'Someone' Dumps $2 Billion Of Gold Into Futures Markets

Tyler Durden's picture

What goes up... must not be allowed to...

Someone just decided this was the perfect time to dump over $2 billion worth of notional paper gold onto the markets...


Over 16,000 gold contracts (and 7,500 silver) were dumped in that 5/10 minutes segment.

It appears Draghi did not like the impression of his impotence that precious metals were suggesting.

It appears the Gold/Silver ratio at 72x was a big buying opportunity?


As the longer-term trendline holds support...

It's OK, Tyler.  We're all used to it by now.

Can't say I didn't warn you. The great precious metals bubble popped long ago, and this may have been the final dead cat bounce before the plunge that truly destroys what remains of the gold and silver bugs. And all this while stocks are poised to make new all time highs! What a tragedy for those who refused to listen to reason and evidence!

Audit the Fed?

How about audit the BIS?

The headline is bullshit.  Puking is internal, means you're sick. Puking is part of a healing process.  PMs didn't puke, they were mugged.

yah, it could'nt be the insane overbought condition brought by fear of printing that did not materialize in 2016

POSX dollar index in a waterfall too alongside gold and manipulation in PM's there.  As if PM's are supposed to follow the dollar in parallel ever...

It must be getting pretty serious..

They could not wait until 3 a.m..

China controls that time slot pretty well now that the SGE is online.  It's gonna get real fun from here on out!

Title of the post should be renamed to:


Health of the Federal Reserve system just puked as the barometer (gold) was indicating weakness - 'Someone' Dumps $2 Billion Of Gold Into Futures Markets

These obviously aren't precious metals.  Rigged, decaying monetary systems tend to react this way.

This particular  'fiduciary dutiless' dump methinks is a test: to see if shanghai will follow them down or diverge

I guess the drop in Gold price was all based on deep technical and fundamental analysis, I mean what else could be behind such a move:

aPlayer's picture

Vipro Markets prop traders highlighted today that there is a very strong physical of Gold from China and it has lately become one of the most popular trading instruments amont Chinese FX traders. At Vipro they get 1:250 leverage on Gold so a lot of stuff can be done if risks are managed properly.

Mark it on your calenders, this is the day they lose it. This puke will be gone by end of day and prices will truly explode after that.

Bet it is china selling to raise the dollar.

didn't make equities dump. are you suggesting that equities (and bonds) aren't insanely overbought at present levels?

S&P500 P/E @ 24.30. seriously above long term averages.

Pump AAPL, punch Gold. Can't have 300+ financial institutions with AAPL as their #1 holding go down. Check charts.

There is currently 112% of annual silver mining supply paper promises sold to speculators. No one who sold those promises was required to have the actual silver in their possession in order to sell their paper promise. There is no way to have proper price discovery while this mechanism to suppress prices is operating. Imagine what the price of silver would be if they could only sell what they could deliver? I hope the Shanghai exchange bankrupts these fuckers through arbitrage and quickly!

Bastiat's picture

Death by a thousand deliveries.

lunaticfringe's picture

Arbitrage these mf'ers. Can't wait.

Death by one influential non-delivery.

Hypothetically, if I were to kill 20 of the highest ranked bankers in the United States, would I be eligible to replace Andrew Jackson on the twenty dollar bill?

How about putting Fagin or Shylock on the $20 bill?  Or perhaps one of those more sinister images of that type that Dr. Goebbels used?

Audit the Fed?

How about audit the BIS?

How about the IRS?

DeadFred's picture

Dude, you do NOT want to know what's in the BIS! You would never sleep again at night if you found out.

There's not enough nailguns to support a BIS audit.

Manthong wrote: "Audit the Fed? How about audit the BIS?" wrong approach

first, the BIS does get it's audits. it's the FED that is not audited

second, the right approach would be to ask the FED to exit that club of CBs. that would in the power of the US Congress to do that

Make the Fed buy up as much UST paper a possible, then cancel the debt.

I haven't read any of your posts in years.  You're not being a very good troll by clinging to a single identity that everyone ignores already.

The shtick got old a long time ago.  Most would have let it go.

B.F. Skinner would suggest via his operant conditioning theory that intermittent rewarding of the posting via comments and votes, up or down, reinforces the attention seeking behaviors.

No comments, no votes, no problem.  An echo chamber of one...

Well that takes the cake.  You have NOT been sarcastic, you really are suffering from a mental illness.  Liberalism.

The only poised position going higher, is the crack pipe to your lips.
