Basically for that to happen, the comex would go into default and be busted. I do not see that in the cards as of yet. Outside some sort of default outside of the comex in actual physical metal. The paper shorts will end up engineering at massive selloff because of the record position which is growing daily. The only thing that may save the longs butt. Is if china and russia put the screws to the paper shorts and run them over. Sad how are finanical system comes down to betting on china and russia to save us from are own government and crooked markets.
What is your about the COT numbers. I have been in the PM market sinve 2001 and every single time the COT paper short position gets to extreme highs or even records. PM get hammered for a few weeks. Its the most crooked and manipulated trading going.
