Gold and Silver - Another Successful Option Expiration For the Insiders

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015 Jun 26, 2015 - 09:30 AM GMT

By: Jesse

Commodities

The Bucket Shop managed to hold gold below the 1180 level, thereby allowing most of the calls for the option expiration to go out worthless. Oh well done.

There was intraday commentary about the Greek situation which may be actually coming to some sort of resolution over the next few weeks. You may read that here.


The Supreme Court upheld 'Obamacare' today, from a highly technical objection about some wording. Despite Scalia's thuggish rant, it really was a no-brainer. At the end of the day it is better than nothing but not by much.

It is a hand-crafted piece of legislation from the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry that was spawned by the conservative corporatists and adopted by Barack 'Sell Out' Obama. Same thing for the TPP by the way, which is why it was so easy for him to team up with the House GOP to defeat his own progressives. Honor and service go begging when everyone is out for gettin' paid.

I had to laugh when I read that this is the most liberal Supreme Court in so many years. The Citizen's United boys? That is about as Orwellian it gets.

Now that they have joined to pass the corporatist TPP, the Wall Strett Dems and Republicans can get back to role playing their opposition, and whipping their ardent constituencies into frothing yahoos who will continue to go out and vote for their own demise.

In other words, if the rubes keep buying it, they will keep selling it. Just like Comex precious metal options.

I have included the statistics for the July 15 Comex Gold Calls and Puts from Last Friday when gold was about 1202 in the first two charts below.

I remember when I first looked at the distribution of the open interest on the right of them. I was stunned at the size of the option open interest because July is not a big or active contract month for gold. That comes in August. As you know in my commentary I initially dismissed the significance of this option expiration for gold because of it.

And I remember vividly thinking to myself, 'they are going to take the price of gold down below 1180 into the expiration. There is nothing to stop them in the futures contracts, no really buying pressure, and the options look like a setup. Who the heck is writing and buying these things?'

And so here we are.

Obviously the details of exactly who was buying and selling what is the key, as the apologists for the Wall Street kleptocracy like to opaquely say. But the action was concentrated enough on a 'nothing contract month' to raise a skeptical eyebrow or two.
