JP Morgan & Silver

Posted by drb2 @ 11:31 on January 13, 2018  


I think this article by Butler  warrants discussion. 

Within this article is everything that needs to be known about silver – what has happened – and what will happen.

The problem is the information is there, but it resides with JPM.  And they are not going to tell Butler, or anyone, what they have in mind.


JPM is not like Hunt or Buffet.   Hunt was an independent, and they crushed him.  Buffet probably not independent, but connected in some way. 


I do not agree with Butler.  I don’t think JPM is controlling silver independently on its own solely for profit. 

No one is going to do to JPM, what was done to the Hunts – JPM is absolutely part, or leader, of the cartel that controls silver (and a whole lot more). 

It scares me to the core to learn that they have such a large position of physical – what is their purpose?

Anybody have any ideas?



The Last Great Silver Buy

by Theodore Butler

January 12, 2018 – 1:44pm

In the annals of silver in the modern age, there have been two well-known instances of very large investor accumulations of the metal. First came the purchase by the Hunt Brothers and their associates in early 1980, followed by the purchase by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, 17 years later. The Hunts were said to control around 100 million ounces of actual metal (plus another 100 million ounces in long paper futures contracts), while Berkshire held as many as 129 million ounces.

Now there is compelling evidence of a third great investment accumulation of physical silver by none other than JPMorgan, one of the most powerful and connected banks in the world. This accumulation can be dated from the price peak of April 2011, after silver began what is now a near seven-year price decline. From zero in April 2011, the amount of silver in the JPMorgan COMEX warehouse has increased to 120 million ounces. Just about every ounce moved into the JPMorgan COMEX warehouse over the past 7 years has come from futures deliveries stopped (taken) by JPM in its own name. JPMorgan took delivery of 14 million ounces in December and so far, 13 million ounces have remained in the warehouses from which the metal was delivered. So this means that JPMorgan now holds more than 133 million ounces of silver in COMEX warehouses, or more than was held by the Hunt Bros or by Berkshire Hathaway at their peaks. There was a lot more silver in the world in 1980 and 1998 than there is today, meaning that JPMorgan’s accumulation is much more of an accomplishment than previous silver acquisitions.

JPMorgan’s COMEX warehouse silver holdings are only the tip of the iceberg. Beneath the surface, the true extent of JPMorgan’s physical silver accumulation is nothing short of mind-boggling. All told, including the verifiable 133 million ounces held in its own and other COMEX warehouses, JPMorgan holds at least 675 million ounces of actual silver. Simply put, JPMorgan has acquired six times as much metal as bought by the Hunts or Berkshire Hathaway. How is it possible that JPMorgan, could acquire such a massive quantity of physical silver, with no general awareness that it was doing so? More importantly, how did they do it while silver prices steadily declined over the entire time of JPM’s accumulation?
