Of course GATA applauds anything that gets people out of paper claims and into real metal, but we're skeptical that even the exhaustion of public inventories of silver and the explosion of the huge short positions nominally on Morgan Chase's books will hurt the bank very much.
For those short positions, like the overwhelming interest rate derivative positions on the books of Morgan Chase, are probably not Morgan Chase's own at all but rather the U.S. government's. Certainly no financial institution would undertake such disproportionate positions -- positions that essentially make Morgan Chase both the silver market and the interest-rate market -- without effective assurance that government would backstop those positions. No other investment bank has undertaken such disproportionate positions.
