Dec 19.09 commentary...important.

Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen:
 
Before going into my regular commentary, I would like to report that last night saw the FDIC close 5 banks, two of which were big.
 
Here are the official closings.  I will go into detail on Monday, the costs to the FDIC.:
 

Independent Bankers' Bank, Springfield, IL, with approximately $585.5 million in assets and $511.5 million in deposits was closed. The FDIC created a bridge bank, Independent Bankers' Bank Bridge Bank (IBB Bridge Bank, N.A.), to take over operations. (PR-237-2009)

New South Federal Savings Bank, Irondale, AL with approximately $1.5 billion in assets and approximately $1.2 billion in deposits was closed. Beal Bank, Plano, TX has agreed to assume all deposits. (PR-236-2009)

Citizens State Bank, New Baltimore, MI, with approximately $168.6 million in assets and $157.1 million in deposits was closed. Deposit Insurance National Bank of New Baltimore, New Baltimore, MI has agreed to assume insured deposits. (PR-235-2009)

Peoples First Community Bank, Panama City, FL with approximately $1.8 billion in assets and approximately $1.7 billion in deposits was closed. Hancock Bank, Gulfport, MS has agreed to assume all deposits, excluding certain brokered deposits. (PR-234-2009)

RockBridge Commercial Bank, Atlanta, GA, with approximately $294.0 million in assets and approximately $291.7 million in deposits was approved for payout by the FDIC Board of Directors. (PR-233-2009).

 

OK lets start with the gold and silver news of the day:

 

Gold closed yesterday up by $4.00 to 1110.80.  Silver rose by 7 cents to 17.25.

Yesterday morning we received the data on the volume on the gold comex and silver comex.

With respect to the gold comex, the estimated volume reported by the Nymex people was 227,000.

I thought that the volume would be in excess of 250,000 and it did.  The final volume was 257,000 and I will include the silver and gold final results at the conclusion of my commentary.

 

However, all eyes was on the open interest figures.  I gave 3 scenarios.  Almost all financial analysts thought that OI would decline by 15000 to 20,000 contracts due to the massive

hit on gold.  That was scenario No 1.  I thought it would be scenario No 2 with a decline of only 1000. Scenario NO 3 was a rise in OI.

 

Believe it or not, the final OI turned out to be scenario No 3, a rise of 475 contracts.

In other words, the weaker hands that left were replaced with a greater number of stronger hands.  Our cartel bankers are having midnight oil meetings this weekend.  They are facing

a determined set of buyers willing to take on the corrupt bankers.  We still have 1100 contracts left to be hit (110,000 oz or 3 tonnes of gold).

The same scenario is being played out in London as many contracts of gold and silver are waiting to be served.

 

The banking cartel solved nothing by their raids during these past 2 weeks.  They have lowered the price of gold by $120.00 and increased their shorts in the process.

The lower price in gold caused demand to increase throughout the world.

 

The CFTC have many problems to contend with.  They are going to have problems explaining how the ETF increased their inventory by 4 tonnes, over in London England, as the bankers here shorted gold

at the Comex.

 

Here is famed John Brimelow with his analysis on the open interest which is identical to mine:

 

The CME Final, just posted, indicates that open interest yesterday rose 475 lots (1.48 tonnes) to 502,930 contracts. Volume remained as reported in the Preliminary at 258,576 lots, 15% above the estimate. See

http://www.cmegroup.com/daily_bulletin/Section62
_Metals_Futures_Products_2009243.pdf

For a $28.80 down day (indeed down $46 intraday) this result is astonishing. Considerable stop losses must have been triggered, but apparently fresh short selling predominated.

Of course, the CME reported a similar event following gold's $48.80 drop on Friday Dec 4th – only to apparently slip a 21,000 lot fall into the following Monday's data.

But then they did have the excuse of huge volume –almost 400,000 lots that day. And presumably they do not actually want to make these errors.

So on its face the gold market has seen the entry of a large volume of new Shorts, who will have to contend with reviving Eastern physical appetite. If commercially motivated, this is likely to be an alarming experience.

Too early to write off 2009 gold.

 

The COT report, released after the market closed confirmed what we have telling you.  The stronger speculators are taking on more gold and silver contracts and our wonderful and fraudulent

bankers are shorting more and more gold and silver.  Here is the COT report to see for yourself.  I remind you that this data is basis Tuesday.  The big raid on gold and silver was on Thursday and the COT next

week will encompass these figures.

 

The gold Committment of Traders Report shows The Gold Cartel staying with their game as of the close on Tuesday....

*The large specs decreased their long positions by only 2474 contracts. More shorts got out than longs as they reduced them by 4153.

*The commercials increased longs by 290 contracts and increased shorts by 4,895.

*The small specs increased longs by 979 contracts and reduced shorts by 1947.

 

We had similar results for silver. Expect next week to have an increase in the commercial shorts as the bankers dig in and supply massive gold and silver contracts in which the underlying asset

does not exit under their ownership. 

 

It is interesting to note that regulators over in Europe have fined Citibank for fraudulently selling short Eurobonds in August 08.  They fined these priestly innocent souls 25 million dollars for their crime.

Here is the story on that front:

 

 Memories of Citi's Eurobond Manipulation



Recall the case in the Euro bond market, wherein Citi came in and sold an enormous volume precipitously, running the stops and driving the price down sharply. The Citi trader came back in and covered his shorts, pocketing the difference in his market disruption based on size. 
Citi Fined for Euro Bond Trades By British Regulator; Italy Indicts Citi Traders; Citi Haunted by Dr. Evil Trades in Europe;

The Citi traders were incredulous, because that is how they would do things in the States, running the stops and using outsized positions to perform short term price manipulation. It has become quite notorious around key market events, such as option expiration. It is so prevalent that it has its own momentum among traders.....

I emailed this to the CFTC yesterday:

 

 To Gary Gensler/Bart Chilton

You should pay attention to this.  Citibank in August 08 (around the same time as JPMorgan et al

shorted massive amts of silver and gold contracts) shorted huge numbers of Euro bonds all the way down in price and then bought them back at lower prices.  The regulators over on that side of the pond were not happy with their antics and fined them severely.

 

Looks remarkably like what JPMorgan and the boys are constantly doing on this side of the pond with respect to shorting silver and gold.  Here is the story in case you missed this:

 

 

MARKET PLACE; Bond Trades Far Too Agile Cost Citigroup $25 Million

 
Published: June 29, 2005

A British regulator fined Citigroup more than $25 million on Tuesday for its rapid trades of billions of dollars of Eurobonds last summer, which caused prices to plummet and stirred the anger of other trading houses.

The regulator, the Financial Services Authority, ordered Citigroup to pay a £4 million ($7.3 million) penalty and to return the £9.96 million ($18.1 million) in profit it made on a trading strategy that became known in the bank as Dr. Evil.

On Aug. 2, Citigroup sold 11.3 billion euros (currently $13.63 billion) in bonds, the equivalent of an average day's trading volume on the MTS electronic trading platform, in 18 seconds -- swamping the market and causing prices to buckle. It also sold 1.5 billion euros on domestic cash markets. Less than an hour later, it bought back 3.8 billion euros ($4.6 billion) of bonds at a far cheaper price, gaining a swift profit.

Earlier in the day, Citigroup had bought Eurobond futures contracts, but it was unclear how large those purchases were.

Though the trades were not illegal, they angered the other bond houses, which said the bank violated an unspoken agreement not to flood the market to drive down prices.

Thomas G. Maheras, Citigroup's chief executive for global capital markets, acknowledged in a memo to employees six weeks later that the bank ''failed to fully consider its impact on our clients, other market participants and our regulators.''

On Tuesday, the Financial Services Authority cited Citigroup for breaches of principles that require a company to ''conduct its business with skill, care and diligence'' and to ''take reasonable care to organize and control its affairs responsibly and effectively.''

It stopped short of charging Citigroup with market manipulation. The six traders who executed the deals were not individually fined, and will be reinstated in their jobs. No one has been fired over the trades.

Executives from the bank said they were pleased with the result.

Charles O. Prince, the chief executive, said in a statement, ''Citigroup and its employees have made a number of changes in how we do things as a result of this case, and we continue to focus on our shared responsibilities to our clients, to each other and to the Citigroup franchise.''

The bank has increased its controls and employee training, and strengthened the compliance staff on its trading floor.

A month before the trades, Citigroup encouraged its European bond traders to increase profits through the development of new strategies, the Financial Services Authority said. The Dr. Evil strategy essentially amounted to ''sell and buy back'' dealings on a very large scale, based on discrepancies in prices.

MTS, the Rome-based electronic debt trading platform where the trades were executed, requires all parties to respond when one trader makes an offer at the current market price in order to increase liquidity. Given those rules, Citigroup's trades left rivals irate.

European governments, whose bond prices fell sharply, have since been withholding business from Citigroup. The bank now ranks No. 26 in managing debt for European governments, down from 12th last year, according to Bloomberg data.

The Citigroup fine was the second largest the Financial Services Authority has levied, after the £17 million (now $30.9 million) it ordered the Royal Dutch/Shell Group to pay for overstating its oil and gas reserves.

Citigroup still faces inquiries in Italy, Belgium and Portugal, but has been cleared of wrongdoing in Germany. Spanish regulators halted their investigation.

Over the last two years, the bank has paid nearly $5 billion in fines to settle suits and investigations related to its business with WorldCom and Enron, and conduct by other units, including its Japanese private bank.

end.

 

Before leaving the gold and silver front, I have been told by  a reliable source, and this has yet to be confirmed that the Indian gold purchase has turned out to tungsten filled.

This is now just a rumour.  I have emailed Rob Kirby and asked if he can confirm the story.

 

However, Jim Willie has reported to us that all allocated gold everywhere is being audited and proof of quality and weight of the bars are being analyzed as we speak.The bullion banks are resisting

owners from taking possession of their bars.  We will follow up on this story and on the Indian story as to whether its gold is tungsten or not.

Here is his alert to us:

 

Jim Willie sent out the following note this afternoon:

FW: contact with strong ties to info sources

huge demands for physical gold are coming from entities holding allocated gold accounts 
they have deposits at gold bullion banks
they are showing up unannounced, with full paperwork, demanding gold to be handed over paperwork consists of lists, bars, dates, serial numbers, weights, and smelter hallmark brands
this is a full blown run on the bullion banks
it is unclear whether they only doubt their gold remains in possession, or if fake gold is held
they are being shown the stacks of shiny pretty gold bars, and urged not to take possession but the entities are not convinced their particular own gold bars are there
big clearing houses are owed gold bullion, and the bullion banks do not have it
at the same time, the delivery process has been corrupted big 
cash bribes are being offered in bids to settle in cash without delivery in futures contracts in fact, the cash bribes are patterned in a reduction over consecutive days
this gives the impression of the extraordinary period being only a brief segment of time
this is a full blown run on the bullion banks
we are fast entering the FRAMEWORK of divergence between paper gold and physical gold
my source confirmed that the divergence is an end game symptom
geez! we might see a $970 gold price before the system just shuts down
this is a run on the gold banks
did I mention this is a run on the gold banks ??
soon we might not have any prices listed on the gold exchanges
soon we might hear of an important default, from a party using courts and legal staffs
soon the physical gold price will be some average of five known private party large volume traders
this is a run on the gold banks

I will now go into the big economic news of yesterday.

 

I guess the big news is that Congress is going to pass an emergency rise in the debt ceiling of 290 billion dollars.  This is to last only six weeks..

The usa is spending almost 7 billion dollars per day more than they take in. If passed the debt ceiling rises to 12.39 billion.  Fun and games will

beset the house in February.

 

Here is Bill Holter's commentary on the raise in the debt ceiling (it still must pass..odds on it will)

 

$290 Billion for 6 weeks!

http://apnews.myway.com/article/20091216/D9CKL24O0.html

To all; while yesterday was a bad day for the metals and shares the Congress voted for a $290 Billion hike in our nation's debt ceiling. WOW! $290 Billion! I can remember back 20 years ago when WOW would have been the response. But what makes this situation beyond stupid is the fact that this MASSIVE amount of money (it was considered massive until about 18 months ago) will last only 6 WEEKS! Congress needed to pass this or face the "alternative", bankruptcy. To put this in perspective, the U.S. will borrow the equivalent of 3 years GLOBAL Gold production just to keep the doors open for 6 more weeks. If I used DOMESTIC production numbers, they are borrowing 30 years worth in current Dollar terms to survive a mere 6 weeks!

So we are now privileged to watch another food fight in February when they will vote on a $2 Trillion increase in the debt ceiling that will last what, maybe 15 months? Why even waste the time to vote? Why not just vote for an unlimited ceiling so we don't have this embarrassment on an annual basis? Is there anyone out there that doesn't understand that the US is already and has been bankrupted for years? Debt ceiling? I really like the concept. My cash balances are running a little low after Christmas shopping and paying year end bills so I think I should go to my bank and tell them they have to up my credit limit! Can you imagine borrowing money on the street and when you can't pay you tell Guido's leg breaker "no problem, I just voted to increase my credit line so you don't have to crack my knees!"?

This all happened at the same time the Senate finance committee voted yes on Mr. Bernanke's reappointment as chief counterfeiter. Was this ever in question? I mean after all he did save the world didn't he? Who would they replace him with anyway? An organ grinding monkey? Maybe 50 years ago yes, but those mimeograph machines that used to crank out such wonderful smelling "copies" went out long ago and have been replaced by "digital copiers" that require the ability to push the correct buttons on a computer while piloting a helicopter.

Maybe I'm all wrong. Maybe the problem wasn't too much debt across the board after all. Maybe we haven't borrowed and printed enough yet. It could be that we haven't shipped enough jobs overseas or that our borders are just too tough to cross illegally. Maybe President Obama is right, we will go bankrupt if health care isn't passed. I mean they were right last year when they told us that if TARP wasn't passed the world would end and life under martial law would become the norm. Since it hasn't happened yet I guess they were right!

Actually, as long as Congress is in the voting mood I wish they would just get it over with and pass the "mother of all bills". They could write a bill (and of course attach it to defense spending for cover) that makes Gold worth zero or actually become a liability, unlimited and valuable Dollars will be the universal world currency, free everything for everyone all the time, work would be a crime punishable by vacation and clear skies and 72 degrees with just a zephyr of wind across all 50 states during the now mandated longer daylight hours!

The above is a joke, what is not a joke is that no one can ever now tell me that what has and is happening here in the U.S. was accomplished through "bad management". Yes, accidents happen, fraud happens and like the bumper stickers say "shit happens" but what has occurred in the U.S. cannot have been an accident. It appears more and more on a daily basis that our "financial bus" is being driven over the cliff ON PURPOSE! No one could be so stupid as to do what has already been done. I don't think the powers that be are stupid nor mistaken, we are going exactly where the bus is being driven and the only "tokens" off this bus are made of Gold and Silver. 2010 will be the year of outrage once the public figures out what has been done to them, and in my opinion on purpose! Regards, Bill H.

Harvard Universisty is having huge problems with its toxic derivatives:

Harvard Swaps Are So Toxic Even Summers Won't Explain (Bloomberg Dec 18 2009)

Harvard Swaps Are So Toxic Even Summers Won't Explain (Update3)

By Michael McDonald, John Lauerman and Gillian Wee

Dec. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Anne Phillips Ogilby, a bond attorney at one of Boston's oldest law firms, on Oct. 31 last year relayed an urgent message from Harvard University, her client and alma mater, to the head of a Massachusetts state agency that sells bonds. The oldest and richest academic institution in America needed help getting a loan right away.

As vanishing credit spurred the government-led rescue of dozens of financial institutions, Harvard was so strapped for cash that it asked Massachusetts for fast-track approval to borrow $2.5 billion. Almost $500 million was used within days to exit agreements known as interest-rate swaps that Harvard had entered to finance expansion in Allston, across the Charles River from its main campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The swaps, which assumed that interest rates would rise, proved so toxic that the 373-year-old institution agreed to pay banks a total of almost $1 billion to terminate them. Most of the wrong-way bets were made in 2004, whenLawrence Summers, now President Barack Obama's economic adviser, led the university. Cranes were recently removed from the construction site of a $1 billion science center that was to be the expansion's centerpiece, a reminder of Summers's ambition. The school said last week they will suspend work on the building early next year.

As many of you know, Citibank failed in their attempt to sell billions of shares at 3.25 in order to exit TARP.

Fed Officials are blaming citibank.  Here is the story on this front:

 

Treasury Official Blames Fed For Citigroup Fiasco12-17-09

A top Treasury official blamed the Federal Reserve on Thursday for Citigroup's botched attempt to raise funds to pay back its federal bailout. The finger-pointing comes a day after the market rejected the government and the Fed's assertions about the health of Citigroup, turning back the bank's effort to raise $17 billion by selling common stock.

The rebuke is a blow to the administration's effort to withdraw itself from its ownership stake in major financial institutions and a reminder that many Wall Street banks, despite planning to pay sky-high bonuses this year, have yet to turn things around…

I highlighted this story to you on Thursday.  It is highly significant so I will repeat it again for those who have not seen this:

Dollar Death By 1000 Paper Cuts (Or trillions, in this case)

Zhu Min, Deputy Governor of the Chinese Central Bank, issued comments at an economic forum in Beijing yesterday in which he stated that the U.S. dollar is set up to go lower and that foreign buyers will become a lot more reluctant to buy more U.S. Treasury bonds:

"When the U.S. has to fund its deficit through the combination of issuing more Treasuries and printing more dollars, it is inevitable that the dollar will continue to weaken."

He also said that the U.S. can no longer assume that foreign countries will continue to fund its massive spending deficits. Here's the Bloomberg news link: Dollar Set To Weaken

Notwithstanding the current miniscule trading bounce in the dollar, it's probably worth paying attention to statements about the U.S. dollar and U.S. spending deficits which eminate from Chinese officials, as they are the largest holder of U.S. Treasury bonds. Might also be worth paying attention to the recent disclosure from Pimco, which revealed that its Total Rate of Return Fund unloaded a massive amount of U.S. Treasury and agency debt, the latter clearly helped by the Fed's massive purchases.

Don't assume that a big spike in interest rates in the Treasury market - caused by funds like Pimco dumping and much higher yields required by foreign buyers - means a lower price of gold. Au contraire, assume that higher interest rates in this context imply much higher inflation expectations from the market, as a result of the weakening of the dollar.

Higher interest rates will also destroy any lingering fantasies of a housing market recovery. Will the Fed let the market takes it natural course and stop printing money? Or will Bernanke, with reappointment confirmation safely in hand from the full Senate in January, re-up the Fed's money printing machine (Quantitative Easing) in order to purchase the 100's of billions in Treasuries necessary to keep interests down? I am betting heavily on the latter and it sounds like the Chinese are as well.

and Tyler Durden of Zero hedge on the same story:

 

The Dark Gray Swan: No More Foreign Dollars With Which To Buy US Treasuries 
Tyler Durden on 12/17/2009 21:31 -0500

Could the next black/green/dark gray swan be so obvious that it has avoided everyone? Well, except for the deputy governor of the Bank of China, who just gave the world a startling reminder of economics 101, when he said that it is "getting harder for governments to buy United States Treasuries because the US's shrinking current-account gap is reducing the supply of dollars overseas." Oops.

The funny thing about natural (and economic) systems: they can only be pushed so far before they snap back to default state. With the entire world embarking on an unprecedented spree of domestic bubble blowing to mask the collapse in global GDP, everyone forgot to trade. Zero Hedge has long emphasized that the drop in world trade can only sustain for so long before it brings the current destabilized system back to some form of equilibrium. Because with every country intent on merely printing more of its own currency, whether it is to build bridges or to make the stock of electronic book fads trade at 100x earnings, said countries ran out of non-domestic cash. Alas, this is most critical for the United States, now that Treasury monetization is over, as the US needs to constantly find foreign buyers of its debt to fund unsustainable deficits. Foreign buyers who have US dollars. And according to Shanghai Daily, this could be a big, big problem.

Here is what the BOC's Zhu Min said earlier:

"The United States cannot force foreign governments to increase their holdings of Treasuries," Zhu said, according to an audio recording of his remarks. "Double the holdings? It is definitely impossible."

We all know that Michigan is in tough shape.  Here is a story on the unemployment rate in Detroit:

 

Nearly half of Detroit's workers are unemployed 
Analysis shows reported jobless rate understates extent of problem 
Last Updated: December 16. 2009 1:42PM 
Mike Wilkinson / The Detroit News

Despite an official unemployment rate of 27 percent, the real jobs problem in Detroit may be affecting half of the working-age population, thousands of whom either can't find a job or are working fewer hours than they want.

Using a broader definition of unemployment, as much as 45 percent of the labor force has been affected by the downturn.

And that doesn't include those who gave up the job search more than a year ago, a number that could exceed 100,000 potential workers alone.

"It's a big number, and we should be concerned about it whether it's one in two or something less than that," said George Fulton, a University of Michigan economist who helps craft economic forecasts for the state.

Mayor Dave Bing recently raised eyebrows when he said what many already suspected: that the city's official unemployment rate was as believable as Santa Claus. In Washington for a jobs forum earlier this month, he estimated it was "closer to 50 percent."
