On Monday, May 14, something happened
that hasn’t happened since Dec of 2008.
Two successive near-month precious metals futures contracts
were in backwardation at the same time

the May silver contract is giving away a 3% annualized profit
to anyone who would sell physical silver and buy a May future
that delivers in a few weeks (thus recovering the same position).
Even more incredibly,
no one can or will take the profit that is dangling out there!

I think that it is a lack of unencumbered metal.
The markets for precious metals, silver more than gold,
have become quite tight.

May was the highest monthly volume in the history of GDX
(with a bullish monthly candle to mark a bottom)
and Friday was the highest daily up volume in the history of the GDX ETF.
clearly, the big boys … have now established their positions.

Commercials are eliminating gold shorts.

Commercials are building a heavy long euro position.

A dollar drop may be in the cards.
