Comex Registered Silver Inventory Falls Below 30 Million Ounces Again
shortage again, if the MM drops the price of Ag too much, will not that in itself affect producers to not produce so much to a down market? We know their costs will increase. And stackers will buy more, other producers will follow EXK and hold silver off market for a better price.
I have heard the same thing. Turd mentioned that it is a fine line between how low you want to try and drive the paper price without causing the physical market to decouple and affect supply of physical. That would leave naked paper shorts in a vulnerable position if there was a sudden huge surge in physical demand that couldn't be delivered. Just looking at the charts shows that Comex physical supply has dropped dropped rather dramatically from 2009.
