NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The gold price chopped around, mostly lower, during the Far East trading session on their Thursday---and both the rally attempt in the Far East---and the one in early London trading, met with a resolute seller the moment that the price attempted to break above unchanged. JPMorgan et al, HFT algorithms in hand, did the dirty starting the moment that COMEX trading began---and by around 11:20 a.m. EDT, their work was done for the day, with another low for this move down. The gold price rallied quietly after that, before chopping sideways starting around 2:40 p.m. in electronic trading. The high and low tick were recorded as $1,186.60 and $1,172.40 in the August contract. The gold price closed in New York yesterday at $1,176.40 spot, down another $8.60 from Wednesday's close. Net volume was very decent at 148,000 contracts. Here's the 5-minute gold tick chart courtesy of Brad Robertson. As you can tell by the volume spikes, "da boyz" stuck it to the Managed Money traders real good once again during the COMEX trading session. Midnight Wednesday is the vertical gray line---and you have to add two hours for EDT---and the ' click to enlarge' feature is a must. The silver chart was similar to gold's, right up until 3:30 p.m. in the New York Access market. At that point a willing seller stepped in and ensured that silver closed on its absolute low tick of the day. The high and low ticks were reported by the CME Group as $16.50 and $16.065 in the July contract. Silver finished the Thursday session at $16.075 spot, down 40 cents on the day. Gross volume was very decent, as was net volume---46,000 contracts. Platinum prices were a mini version of the gold price chart---and palladium was a mini version of the platinum chart. Platinum closed on Thursday at $1,098 spot, down three bucks, finally cracking the $1,100 spot price to the downside. Palladium also closed 3 dollars lower at $753 spot. Here are the charts. The dollar index finished the Wednesday trading session in New York at 95.37---and traded virtually ruler flat until about 1:30 p.m. Hong Kong time. At that juncture it rallied 20 basis points, hitting 95.56 at 8:30 a.m. BST in London trading. It fell of a cliff at 9 a.m. right on the button, hitting its 94.72 low about thirty five minutes later. Then at noon BST it appeared that 'gentle hands' showed up---and the dollar rallied to a handful of basis points above unchanged minutes before trading began in the equity markets in New York. It rallied higher from there in a rather choppy manner---and closed yesterday at 95.58---up 21 basis points from Wednesday. It's obvious to me that the dollar would crash if given the opportunity to do so---and it's equally as obvious that the powers-that-be are at hand to prevent that from happening. Here's the 6-month U.S. Dollar chart as a reference. The gold stocks opened down---and chopped more or less sideways for the remainder of the day, as the HUI closed down another 1.35 percent. It was more or less the same thing in the silver equities, although the trading day had more shape to it. The big drop because someone sold a boat load of shares in Peñoles right at the close, at least that's what Nick said yesterday when I asked him. Because of that, Nick's Silver Sentiment Index got hit for 2.26 percent. Without that share dump, the loss would have been about 0.5 percent. The CME Daily Delivery Report for Day 5 of the June delivery month showed that zero gold and 9 silver contracts were posted for delivery within the COMEX-approved depositories on Monday. Nothing to see here. The CME Preliminary Report for the Thursday trading session showed that gold open interest for June dropped another 282 contracts, leaving 1,262 still open. June o.i. in silver was up 7 contracts to 40. There was no reported change in GLD, but another deposit was made in SLV. This time it was 1,433,379 troy ounces. So far this week, there has been a bit over 2.5 million ounces deposited in SLV. Since the price action indicates that silver should be flowing out of that ETF, the deposits must have been used to cover an existing short position. We'll have to wait until about June 23 when the next short position report comes out of the folks over at shortsqueeze.com in order to get a hint of what might be going on. Since yesterday was Thursday, Joshua Gibbons, the Guru of the SLV Bar List, updated his website with the goings-on over at the iShares.com Internet site at the close of trading on Wednesday---and this is what he had to report. "Analysis of the 03 June 2015 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list: 1,138,121.2 troy were added (all to Brinks London), 893,539.6 oz were removed (all from Brinks London), and 113 bars had serial number changes." "The bars removed were from: Solar Applied Materials (0.3M oz, Krasnoyarsk (0.2M oz), and 10 others. The bars added were from: Krasnoyarsk (0.2M oz), Prioksky (0.1M oz), and 13 others. "As of the time that the bar list was produced, it was overallocated 384.9 oz. All daily changes are reflected on the bar list." Over at Switzerland's Zürcher Kantonalbank for the week ending May 29---they reported tiny declines in both their gold and silver ETFs. Their gold ETF shed 1,804 troy ounces---and their silver ETF dropped only 7,123 troy ounces. After four straight day of sales, it should come as no surprise that there was no report from the U.S. Mint yesterday. Over at the COMEX-approved depositories on Wednesday, there was 50,092 troy ounces of gold transferred from Canada's Scotiabank to HSBC USA. Other than that, there was no activity worth mentioning, but the link to what there was, is here. It was another huge in/out day in silver, as 411,788 troy ounces were received---all at JPMorgan's vault---and 1,012,058 troy ounces were shipped out. All of the 'out' movement was from Canada's Scotiabank, including the 411,788 troy ounces that JPMorgan received. The link to that action is here---and it's worth a quick look. There wasn't a lot of activity at the COMEX-approved gold kilobar depositories in Hong Kong on their Wednesday, as only 775 kilobars were reported received---and another 475 were shipped out. All of the action was at Brink's, Inc. as usual. The link to that activity is here. I have a fair number of stories for you today---and I'll happily leave the final edit up to you.
