pas de manipulation, ni de concertation, on vous dit !
c'est tout à fait pas hasard que l'or et l'argent sont attaqués, alors que
- Goldman Sachs vient de lancer un signal de vente su l'ensemble du compartiment des matières premières...
- et qu'un trader a pris pour 1 million$ de paris baissiers sur SLV, pour moins 37% sur juillet !
- et bien entendu, le signal baissier, lancé par le HUI, lundi, a fonctionné ..
-enfin, et sur la 1ere journée du raid de lundi .. l'open interest a monté ... traduisant bien que la baisse de l'or et de l'argent n'était pas provoquée par prises de profits mais par de nouveaux shorts
ceux qui voient là des signaux de manipulation, ont tout silmplement mauvais esprit ! www.lemetroplecafe.com Bloomberg reports:
"A trader’s almost $1 million bet that an exchange-traded fund tracking silver will plunge 37 percent by July was today’s biggest single options trade on U.S. exchanges as futures on the metal reached a 31-year high. The 100,000 options to buy 100 shares each of the iShares Silver Trust (SLV) at $25 by July changed hands at the ask price of about 10 cents and exceeded the open interest of 6,054 outstanding contracts before today, indicating that a buyer of a new bearish position initiated the transaction.
***Knowing what we know, my Planet GATA mind suggests this could very well have been a JP Morgan bit of signal news in order to do what they can to work the price of silver down. A million bucks is NOTHING to JPM in terms of their money making operations and in relation to their massive silver short position, which is deeply underwater at the moment.
Whether it was a signal or note, who knows, but my bet, at minimum, it was done to try and shake out some longs during the attack on silver yesterday afternoon and this morning.
That silver story happened to coincide with another bit of news which made the rounds yesterday…Goldman’s commodity call takes shine off risk assets

Traders’ wariness towards growth plays was compounded by news that Goldman Sachs had advised clients to lock in profits on oil and other commodities
as they looked vulnerable to a short term correction.
The bank’s comments seemed to hit a nerve in a sector that many saw as vulnerable after many months of strong gains and very high levels of "long" speculation.
Crude oil fell back from a fresh cyclical high of $113.46 a barrel, losing 3.5 per cent on the session. On Tuesday, West Texas Intermediate is little changed at cents at $108.83.
Precious metals were particularly hard hit by the Goldman-induced selling. Silver had hit a 31-year high of $41.93 an ounce but fell back at one point to $39.75, a 5.2 per cent reversal. The grey metal is currently at $40.41, while gold is off 0.4 per cent at $1,461 an ounce after hitting a record $1,476 on Monday.
