Here are today’s results:
The total gold comex open interest fell today by 2,558 contracts from 386,524 down to 383,966 as gold closed up on Friday to the tune of $14.20. The biggest of all delivery months is the December contract month. The December OI contract month fell by 2427 contracts to 7731 despite the fact that we had few notices filed. No doubt we had considerable cash settlements during the holiday. The next non active delivery month is January and here the OI fell by 4 contracts down to 408. The next big active month for gold is February and here the OI fell by only 739 contracts to 234,105 as the rest just dropped out. The estimated volume today was light at 140,243 contracts The confirmed volume Friday was light as well at 130,018. I guess nobody wants to play in a crooked casino.
The total silver Comex OI fell by only 370 contracts in total contrast to gold, as silver was u[ in price on Friday by 35 cents. The total OI now rests tonight at 132,752 contracts. The big December contract saw its OI fall by 1111 contracts down to 2,279. We had 786 contracts served upon our longs on Friday so we lost 325 contracts or 1,625,000 oz of silver will not stand. The next non active month for silver is January and here the OI fell by 49 contracts down to 2,562. The next big delivery month for silver is March and here the OI rose by 720 contracts up to 92,474.
