We apologize for the delay in getting you Friday's COMEX Silver Inventory update- The Doc has been exhausted from working 120 hour weeks between the day job and keeping SD readers always up to date, and needed a slight break to charge the batteries.
A slight break, and also some time to work on an animated vid that readers should enjoy- BullRun & I are having a blast writing it. Sunday's posting will also likely be slower than normal as well due to work on the vid and some needed quality family time.
The Doc would also like to take a moment to thank the few dedicated readers who contribute to The Doc's "Life Support" as well as those who consider and visit SD's sponsors. It is noticed, and it is always much appreciated.
All of your donations and funds raised through the sponsors are going towards site improvements and upgrades, and we are continuing to work on the redevelopment of the SD site as funds allow. The Doc continues to volunteer his time towards this site and keeping you all informed and educated- this is my passion, and I truly enjoy the tremendous opportunity each of SD's readers provide by allowing us to share our thoughts and analysis on today's financial situation. We'll continue to do our best to perfect the site and the news and analysis- constructive criticism and comments are always welcome.

Now go back and look at Brink's big withdrawal again.
That's right, 615,920 ounces of silver were shuffled from Brink's REGISTERED vault into Scotia Mocatta's ELIGIBLE. Either someone just decided that 615,920 ounces of their silver is not for sale, or the COMEX shuffle is attempting to prevent December delivery concerns from blowing up the COMEX due to delivery issues for Scotia.
