WHOA! Forty-One Percent of Physical Gold PULLED from Chicago Mercantile Exchange Kilo Vaults in ONE day!

WHOA!  Forty-One Percent of Physical Gold PULLED from Chicago Mercantile Exchange Kilo Vaults in ONE day!

The uber-wealthy have withdrawn forty-one percent (41%) of the physical Gold Bullion from the Kilo vaults of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), in ONE DAY!

The chart above shows the staggering withdrawals from the CME Kilo Vault totaling 174,612.081 Troy Ounces

What's most interesting about this is the withdrawal was NOT the typical 400 ounce Gold Bars; it was Kilos.  Billions of dollars worth.

Sovereigns do not generally buy or hold Kilos of Gold.  So this is likely the smaller - but still very wealthy - pulling the gold out.

What is now taking place that the uber-wealthy, and "connected" individuals, have so suddenly decided to take physical possession of Gold?

What is coming that the wealthy want to physically have their gold rather than trust someone else to hold it?

Withdrawals of this magnitude do not happen very often . . . at all.

Clearly, the very wealthy think (or know) some calamity is coming, and they want their gold in their own hands before whatever is coming, hits.

To put this in perspective, the Comex 50-day average rate of gold withdrawal just hit a new high of 131,293. Think about what this means for a moment... On average, 131,293 ounces of gold (~$233M) have been withdrawn from the Comex EVERY DAY for the past 50 days.

Now, 174,612.081 Troy Ounces has been pulled out.  Something wicked this way comes.



 Hal Turner Editorial Opinion

I believe the withdrawals of bullion from Comex inventory is functioning the same as a bank run.

Individuals that hold their bullion at these warehouses have decided that it is no longer safe from fraud or confiscation and they are acting independently to find other venues for their bullion.

At some point, like we see in previous bank runs, there will be some sort of restrictions imposed to prevent bullion leaving the vaults. That is when this fraud breaks wide open.

It should not be a mystery . . . when Germany requested to repatriate some of the bullion in the custody of the Federal Reserve and were told to go pound sand. That gold is no longer there and the parasites had to find other gold from elsewhere to eventually deliver to them.

I would put the odds at zero that the Money Changers are playing by the rules with custodial bullion at Comex. Zero!

For sure some or all of that metal has been stolen and resold to multiple owners and as the inventory declines the scam will be revealed.

Same with Silver.   Long before the last ounce of silver is cleared out, the scheme will collapse. The only reason it has not done so already is because hundreds of millions of 'ounces' of silver have been delivered through EFPs and quietly settled in cash. Even that is getting long in the tooth and at some point people will just demand their silver - which is not there to deliver.

The smart guys are getting their bullion out of the warehouse now while they still can.

I have been looking for s very special set of jewish books for a year.! This is the kind of books that are almost never sold and when it is its very expensive!
Last week shockingly several sets became available from different sellers. I purchased a pristine first edition set for a fraction of its value!

These folks have realized when the cities are nuked, which they’re pushing for, the vaults and all the gold will vaporize. Moving it into underground bunkers in the boondocks.

The tombstone of a drifter who had died after eating paste at Pioneer Cemetery in Goldfield, Nevada, USA. It was thought that he had found a jar of of the paste while looking for something to eat. The paste was supposedly rather sweet as it was made out of flour, water and 60% alum. Unfortunately, the concentration was also deadly.

Picture of tombstone

News paper articular

I remember eating paste from a gallon glass jar in kindergarten. I think just about all of us did at one point. It was sweet and I'm sure, laden with bacteria from dozens of grimy little hands. Probably the source of my robust immune system sixty-some years later!

Have you noticed the dates?

There was 40% of Gold pulled out on the 18th from the bullion warehouse, same day Amazon cancels 40% of orders and Walmart also. Next day 19th, Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant Reports 6-8 Explosions.


Now on the 24th, exactly 6 months since the start of Russia's "Special Military Operation"we have:-
2) On August 24, Ukraine will suffer a massive air and missile barrage destroying all the bridges across the Dnieper River, "Key Decision-Making centers", several electric generating stations, and the loss of Nikolaev and Odessa.

I believe in watching Gold as an indicator of coming world events, these withdrawals are significant signs that something BIG is coming.

We live in DANGEROUS and interesting times!

Spot prices are great for "paper gold". But really mean nothing when it comes to buying actual physical gold.

For instance spot price today is $1756. BUT to buy a Physical 1 oz Gold coin, the most common in the US being the 1 Oz Gold American Eagle (which is 1 troy ounce). Today (8/21/2022) the price for a 1 Oz Gold American Eagle is $1941.

So 174,612 Troy Ounce's of physical gold is equal to about $399 BILLION Dollars.

Even if you do go by "spot price", thats still $306.5 Billion.
+4 # █▓▒░ This is Billions of $, not millions ░▒▓█Palehorse 2022-08-21 23:04

The premiums are high and will only get higher.
For instance the current spot price for a single 1 Oz.
2022 Silver Eagle is $19.22 but to buy one on eBay they
are going for between $36-$38 each. That means the
premium is around $18. I have seen them in other places
for as little as $33 after a $14 premium was added.
+6 # █▓▒░ Whole World is a Banana Republic – Bill Holter ░▒▓█Palehorse 2022-08-21 22:02

Big money is getting out of fiat currencies like the U.S. dollar.
Bill Holter brokered what looks like the biggest U.S. silver coin
deal in history. 

It was also reported this last July 26 that precious metals
dealer Bill Holter had a single customer who purchased
$50 Million in coins and the Silver Eagle, 1 oz, portion of
the deal was 650,000 coins. (That's more than 21 tons)
Only $27 million of that could be bought in U.S. incremented
silver coins.  (The rest was used to buy gold U.S. coins.)

Holter says, “We have had free and carefree times for the
last 40 years.  Now, you are going to see the reverse.  Debt
is a two-edge sword, and after 40 years, we are going to see
the dangerous side of the sword. . . .

Just liquidated ALL my crypto holdings to USD and deposited to credit union savings...took that physically bought gold, bullion, coins (large and small) plus other potential individual usage gold. This is the cheapest one will see for a long-long time. Plus it might get one out of tight and sticky spots later!

Gold and silver IS money. All else is paper. The uber rich along with nations such as India, Russia and China know that precious metals are wealth. They use paper to scam the masses, charge interest on that paper, inflate it or deflate it as they see fit and gain value from real goods (the equity) you have when you default.

However, they hold metals, gems, land and art. The rest is paper for the uninformed. Knowing that anything held in a bank can be ripped off (confiscated) it's best to keep it yourself. The Russians found this out the hard way.

It’s also worth pointing out that the 10 year yield is rising which signifies instability in the debt market. When the debt bubble pops then we will witness something that mankind has never seen before. Precious metals is a safe haven. You want the physical asset. Not the paper assets.
