The majority of the declines came from the Registered category (the category that represents inventory that is available for delivery into the market). </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Sunday, November 22nd</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;">Ever since July, there has been some interesting changes in the COMEX and Shanghai Futures Exchange silver inventories.&nbsp; The increase in physical silver investment demand that surged in July, had a direct impact on COMEX silver inventories.</span></p><p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/shanghai-vs-comex-opposite-moves-silver-inventories-15064" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Sun, 22 Nov 2015 19:45:14 +0000 SRSrocco 15064 at http://www.silverseek.com COT Silver Report - November 20, 2015 http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-november-20-2015-15062 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> COT Silver Report - November 20, 2015 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Friday, November 20th</span> </div> </div> </div> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="margin: auto auto auto 4.65pt; width: 551px; border-collapse: collapse;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tbody><tr style="height: 15.75pt; mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes;"><td style="border-bottom: #f0f0f0; border-left: windowtext 1pt solid; padding-bottom: 0in; padding-left: 5.4pt; width: 413pt; padding-right: 5.4pt; background: black; height: 15.75pt; border-top: windowtext 1pt solid; border-right: black 1pt solid; padding-top: 0in;" colspan="6" valign="bottom" nowrap="nowrap" width="551"><p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: cente</td></tr></tbody></table><p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-november-20-2015-15062" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 20 Nov 2015 20:18:47 +0000 SilverCOTReport 15062 at http://www.silverseek.com Mine Production Stagnates As Silver Coin Demand Hits Record High http://www.silverseek.com/article/mine-production-stagnates-silver-coin-demand-hits-record-high-15061 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> – Total silver supply is forecast to fall to 1,014.4 Moz* in 2015, down 3% – Silver bullion coin sales at record high, up 95% year-on-year – Coin demand should account for 12% of physical demand this year – Silver market is expected to be in an annual physical deficit of 42.7 Moz* in 2015 – Silver prices this year are 18.3% lower than in the same period in 2014 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> GoldCore </div> </div> </div> <div><p>Thomson Reuters has released their interim Silver Market Review including provisional supply and demand forecasts for 2015.</p><p>Highlights from that report include:</p></div><div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Friday, November 20th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/article/mine-production-stagnates-silver-coin-demand-hits-record-high-15061" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 20 Nov 2015 14:03:07 +0000 admin 15061 at http://www.silverseek.com OFFICIAL RELEASE: World Silver Deficits –12 Years Running http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/official-release-world-silver-deficits-%E2%80%9312-years-running-15060 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> According to the recently released Silver Institute 2015 Interim Report, the world experienced annual silver net deficits for 12 years running.

Due to strong demand, the U.S. Mint, the Royal Canadian Mint, Australia’s Perth Mint, the Austrian Mint and the British Royal Mint have put their silver bullion coins on allocation, where the volume of distribution of coins is controlled due to bottlenecks in the manufacturing process. This is an unprecedented industry-wide phenomenon. In recent history, putting bullion coins on allocation has only occasionally been done by the U.S. Mint. The practice points to considerable tightness in the silver coin business at the moment. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-article-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Source:&nbsp;</div> <a href="https://www.silverinstitute.org/site/2015/10/12/silver-bullion-coins-on-allocation-at-major-national-mints/" target="_blank">The Silver Institute</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="entry-content"><p><em>Silver Investment Bars Also in Short Supply</em></p></div><div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Tuesday, October 13th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/article/silver-bullion-coins-allocation-major-national-mints-14957" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Tue, 13 Oct 2015 16:07:26 +0000 admin 14957 at http://www.silverseek.com Update on the Gold Silver Ratio http://www.silverseek.com/article/update-gold-silver-ratio-14954 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> I posted an article on the gold-silver ratio (GSR) back in February 2009 which you can find here.

With silver production waning, demand could overwhelm supply. According to his work the bottom may already be in place in the PMs market. The following scenario could occur: silver gaps higher several dollars - silver eagles / maple leafs sell out over night - premiums on pre-&#039;65 silver triple. Major silver suppliers are reporting big premiums in pre-&#039;65 silver, over $4.00 per ounce, a startling high figure. Bull markets oftentimes require a base building period - David Morgan thinks that could be currently underway. But even if the bottom is not in place, the precious metals remain the diversification tool, du jour for every investment portfolio.

Like gold, silver fell as the US dollar rose on the back of expectations that the Fed will hike rates. World demand for physical silver fell 4% in 2014, largely due to a record 19.5% drop in investment demand. Silver exchange-traded funds (ETFs) did not see big liquidations in 2014. ETF holdings grew by 1.4 million ounces and recorded their highest year-end level at 636 million ounces. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Laurynas Vegys </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;">Silver is down 7.1% this year.

So far, the latter concern has proved unfounded with public demand in China accelerating on lower prices and exceeding global mine output on its own. As well as Chinese demand, anecdotal evidence tells us that at these prices physical demand from the public has increased elsewhere, with gold sovereigns becoming scarce in London.

From Pasha Roberts’ Silver Circle Movie – which, one day, may be a cult classic on a par with Atlas Shrugged; to Damian Bouch’s No Delight in Fools, an extremely entertaining fictional account of a post dollar crash world; to Fed Up by Robert Power – which I just read this week – I am continually awed by the vast array of skill sets Miles Franklin Blog readers possess. In Fed Up, Power tells a fictional story of blackmail involving high powered Federal Reserve traitors traders – involving gold, the PPT, and the insanity of government attempts to manipulate markets. I highly recommend all of the above, as well as numerous non-fictional books written by pro-Precious Metals, anti-establishment authors from our “shadow world” – like Dmitri Speck’s Gold Cartel; Carl Jarvis’ The United States of Dysfunction; and Gary Christenson’s Gold Value and Gold Prices.
