Silver, above ground, is more rare than gold! There is seven times as much gold above ground as compared to silver!

I have written several times regarding the high and growing open interest in the COMEX silver contracts. It is my belief the Chinese via proxy are the longs and will at some point call for delivery. I was "reprimanded" by a very famous commodities trader telling me that the open interest was high only because of "spread trades". Spread trades only amount to 23,000 contracts which if subtracted would still leave us with 150,000 contracts or more of silver, still historically high. Something is just not right, the open interest in gold is near multi year lows while silver touched 6 year highs last week, "spreads" do not explain it.
I have also argued that both silver and gold have seen concentrated sales where 50% or more of global production is dumped within 24-36 hours which in a real market where real metal trades, could not ever happen. Who could have this size of metal and who would sell in a fashion to destroy their own price even if they did? The answers of course are no one, and no one. I get it, hedge funds are momentum traders and pile on in whatever direction any commodity is moving but gold and silver have now had access trades open lower or unchanged in 106 out of the last 110 trading days. This is a statistical impossibility. So it is what it is, but what does it mean, and what has silver trading way below the cost of production now unleashed?
MAKE SURE YOU GET PHYSICAL SILVER IN YOUR OWN POSSESSION. Don't Buy SLV, or Futures or Pooled Accounts or any other BS paper silver product .Remember anything on paper is worth the paper it is written on. Go Long Stay long the bull market have even started yet
