THE DAILY GOLD FIX REPORT FROM SHANGHAI AND LONDON.
The Shanghai fix is at 10:15 pm est and 2:15 am est
The fix for London is at 5:30 am est (first fix) and 10 am est (second fix)
Thus Shanghai’s second fix corresponds to 195 minutes before London’s first fix.
And now the fix recordings:
Shanghai morning fix Sept 15 (10:15 pm est last night): $ not available/holiday
NY ACCESS PRICE: $n/a (AT THE EXACT SAME TIME)
Shanghai afternoon fix: 2: 15 am est (second fix/early morning):$ not available/holiday
NY ACCESS PRICE: n/a (AT THE EXACT SAME TIME)
London Fix: Sept 15: 5:30 am est: $1320.10 (NY: same time: $1321.20: 5:30AM)
London Second fix Sept 8: 10 am est: $1310.80* (NY same time: $1311.80 , 10 AM)*after a beautifully orchestrated criminal raid today.
It seems that Shanghai pricing is higher than the other two , (NY and London). The spread has been occurring on a regular basis and thus I expect to see arbitrage happening as investors buy the lower priced NY gold and sell to China at the higher price. This should drain the comex.
Also why would mining companies hand in their gold to the comex and receive constantly lower prices. They would be open to lawsuits if they knowingly continue to supply the comex despite the fact that they could be receiving higher prices in Shanghai.
For comex gold:The front September contract month we had 72 notices filed for 7200 oz
For silver: the front month of September we have a total of 94 notices filed for 470,000 oz
Yesterday, you could have bet the farm that there is going to be a raid on gold and silver today due to the Chinese festival. They will be on holiday until Monday. With no physical to draw on, it was relatively easy for our crooks to supply 70 tonnes of gold in seconds to cause gold to falter down to 1308.00 before recovering.
Let us have a look at the data for today
