Anyone with a naked short in the silver futures market risks getting squeezed by physical buying. Demand for delivery of Comex silver bars is rising, even as the paper price of the metal fell more than 4.5% last week.

TSX Venture Exchange Venture 50
Wednesday, February 24, 2021
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada -- Prime Mining Corp. (TSX-V: PRYM, OTCQB: PRMNF, Frankfurt: A2PRDW) announces that it has been named to the 2021 TSX Venture 50, an annual ranking of top-performing listed companies from five industry sectors including mining, oil and gas, clean technology and life sciences, diversified industries, and technology.

It will happen when long contract holders discover, en masse, the paper they bought cannot be redeemed for the actual metal as expected. Instead they get cash-settled or, in the event of an outright default, they get nothing at all from insolvent counterparties.
Garrett Goggin has been keeping an eye on Comex silver deliveries. He notes a huge difference between this year and last. Delivery demand is roughly 20 times what it was for this period last year. It is approximately four times the previous record for the period set in 2010. ...
