– Silver Futures Report, JP Morgan Record Silver Bullion Holding Is Extremely Bullish

– JP Morgan Continues Adding To Massive Silver Bullion Holdings (see chart)

– Silver Speculators Go Short – Which Is Extremely Bullish

– Stunning Silver COT Report: One For the Ages (see chart)

The silver futures Commitment of Traders (COT) report released last Friday was extremely positive and has most silver analysts calling for higher silver prices in the near term.

The COT data signaled we are close to bottoming and suggest that both gold and silver should make gains in the coming weeks and months. The data showed that the hedge funds and “Managed Money traders,” the “dumb money” speculators now have record short positions in silver.

At the same time, the large commercials and including large bullion banks such as JP Morgan, the “smart money” and the “inside money” have reduced their shorts dramatically and are now long.

The COT report shows ‘Managed money’ silver specs have their largest short position in at least 28 years and maybe ever. From a contrarian perspective this is very bullish.

Another less reported bullish factor is JP Morgan continuing to add to its massive silver bullion holdings. They rose to a new record high last week at 139.12 million troy ounces. Either JP Morgan themselves or their clients or both are acquiring physical silver bullion in a big way and are clearly bullish silver.

The notes by Ed Steer and Jon Rubino about this are well worth a read and below are the key snippets:

Ed Steer from EdSteerGoldSilver.com in Stunning Silver COT Report: One For the Ages put it this way

The Commitment of Traders Report, for positions held at the close of COMEX trading on Tuesday was right on the money in gold as far as Ted estimates were concerned, but in silver the decline in the Commercial net short position exceeded even his most bullish expectations. Considering the very modest price decline in silver during the reporting week, I thought his “5,000 to 10,000 contract improvement” estimate to be wildly optimistic. How wrong I was!

In silver, the Commercial net short position dropped by an eye-watering 15,564 contracts, or 77.8 million troy ounces of paper silver. Wow!
