All About Silver - ... the buck stops here ...
The only website to cover the demise of Tulving, one of the best known bullion retailers.

20 Feb 2014: About 7Moz of metal was removed from the Brinks London vault this week, with another 7Moz of different bars replacing it! This appears to be JPM taking advantage of the (likely illegal) policy they forced on iShares of allowing them to 'substitute' silver (e.g. they may take out a bar if they replace it with another).

02 Feb 2014: Another unusual Sunday update, adding 2Moz. This one was at ~1:45PM EST. Again, very strange.

03 Sep 2013: Another unusual Sunday update, removing 2Moz. This was ~1:30PM EST; the 23 Jun 2013 Sunday update was at ~1:00PM EST. Very strange.

23 Jun 2013: There was a very unusual Sunday update, adding exactly 3M shares and the corresponding ~3Moz of silver to SLV. We didn't know they were open for business on Sunday! Very strange. It would almost certainly be illegal to add shares on a Sunday, so it sounds like a reporting error (I.E. the numbers that should have appeared on Friday ~8PM did not get updated until Sunday between about 12:45 and 1:00PM).

12 Feb 2013: JPM Covers 10Moz SLV Short Position To Open New York Vault.

26 Jan 2013: The new SLV short data shows that the SLV short position as of the time the 18.4Moz deposit went through was 99.4% of the amount of silver that was deposited. See the end of our analysis.

25 Jan 2013: 8.9Moz of SLV silver is released and replaced with similar-but-different silver, to close out the Johnson Matthey vault. More details to follow; we are waiting to hear iShares' response.

21 Jan 2013: We have come up with an analysis of the 18.3Moz SLV deposit of 16 Jan 2013! News includes that JPM now operates a SLV warehouse in New York with 10.0Moz in it.

We have also added a "Who's Who of SLV" page, discussing the relations of various parties (iShares, BlackRock, Bank of New York Mellon, JPM, Brinks, etc.).

Again, we see a questionable substitution of bars (5.000Moz removed from Brinks London and Brinks London A, and a different 5.000Moz added to JPM New York). The custodian agreement allows this, but the prospectus does not, and iShares refuses to state that the substitutions are valid.

Of the bars removed, all (7,779,294) was 'old' silver (deposited before February 2010). This may be due to the Brinks London vault being phased out.

NOTES:
[1] There was a massive 18.3Moz deposit on 16 Jan 2013.
[2] JPM added a new vault in New York, accounting for 10.0Moz of the 18.3Moz deposit.
[3] Between January 21 and January 23, all silver was removed from the Johnson Matthey vault (I.E. it ceased operations for SLV). On the bar list summary page, it looked like this was simply a transfer of 8.9Moz from the JM vault to the Brinks vault. However, the 8,920,696.4oz removed from the JM vault was all JM bars, and the 8,920,649.3oz added to Brinks was an assortment of bars. More details to come...
[4] 6.1Moz was removed just after this week's bar list was created.

[For reference, you can see the 17 Jan 2013 analysis of the first deposit of the week, the 18 Jan 2013 analysis of the big deposit, and the 23 Jan 2013 analysis of the JM transfer and the 1.4Moz deposit.]

As of the time that the bar list was produced, it was overallocated 122.9oz.
The final 3 bars in the JPM London A vault were transferred to JPM London V. It may have seemed odd that 3 bars were left, but this is likely due to the ever-changing 'basket size' (50,000 shares, which originally was 50,000 ounces, but as of today is 48,398 ounces).
99% of the bars removed have been in there several years.

As of the time that the bar list was produced, it appears to be underallocated 484,919.1oz! The SLV website has shown no change in the amount of silver in the trust between 02 Oct 2012 at 8PM EST and the time the bar list was produced. It appears that it includes the monthly withdrawal from Tuesday, but not the standard withdrawal. [10 Oct 2012 Update: the 484,011.5oz were removed this week]
For the first time in nearly a year, there was no movement of silver from JPM London A to Brinks London. About 95Moz in all has been transferred from JPM London A to Brinks London, with 5Moz left in JPM London A (which we expect will be transferred shortly).

2,664,301.2 oz were removed (.4Moz from Brinks London, 2.2Moz from JPM London A), 3,747,557.7oz were added (all to Brinks London), and 39 bars had serial changes.
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it was overallocated 210.5oz.
Again, we see movement of silver (~2.2Moz) from JPM London A to Brinks London.
Over 30Moz of silver has been moved so far from JPM London A to Brinks London, at a steady pace of ~2-2.5Moz/week.

02 May 2012 Analysis of the 02 May 2012 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
1,988,007.9 oz was moved from JPM London A to Brinks London, no bars had serial changes.
The bars moved were from: Britannia (.5Moz), JM USA (.2Moz), Handy Harman (.2Moz), Australian Gold Refineries (.2Moz), and 18 others.
No bars were removed or added (aside from the movement between vaults); this is a rare event for SLV.
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it was overallocated 138.6oz.
Again, we see movement of silver (2Moz) from JPM London A to Brinks London.
Almost all of the silver moved was placed in the JPM London A vault in 2006-2007. It appears that most, if not all, is from COMEX-approved refiners.

25 Apr 2012 Analysis of the 25 Apr 2012 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
5,219,265.1 oz were removed (2.6Moz from Brinks London, 2.6Moz from JPM London A), 2,500,451.7oz were added (all to Brinks London), and 53 bars had serial changes.
The bars added were from: Russian State Refineries (.6Moz), Britannia (.4Moz), and 30 others.
The bars removed were from: Met-Mex (1.0Moz), Inner Mongolia Qiankun (1.0Moz), Russian State Refineries (.6Moz), and 38 others.
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it was overallocated 138.6oz.
Again, we see movement of silver (~2.5Moz) from JPM London A to Brinks London.
Oddly, while 2,718,364.8oz was actually removed from SLV, 2,664,258.2 of that came from Brinks London, while 54,555.2 came from JPM London A.

18 Apr 2012 Analysis of the 18 Apr 2012 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.

The bars added were from: Russian State Refineries (2.2Moz), Britannia (.6Moz), and 39 others.
The bars removed were from: Russian State Refineries (1.9Moz), JM (1.3Moz), and 32 others.
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it was overallocated 587.2oz.
Again, we see movement of silver (~3.3Moz) from JPM London A to Brinks London.
We also see 1.2Moz of JM bars removed from the JM vault (the 10 Apr 2012 withdrawal); JM bars are COMEX-approved.
The 12 Mar 2012 and 13 Mar 2012 withdrawals were removed from Brinks London.
We therefore can deduce that the entire 3.3Moz removed from JPM London A went to Brinks London (as we've seen before) -- BUT, if they are simply trying to lower the amount of silver in JPM London A, why aren't SLV baskets being removed from that vault?

As of the time that the bar list was produced, it was overallocated 214.7oz.
The SLV daily information showed 1,700,008.1oz removed during the week and no bars added.
It appears that the extra activity we saw was the movement of 4.1Moz from JPM London A to Brinks London.

It is not possible to tell if there is an overallocation or not.
Also, silver was added to the trust even though there were no daily silver additions. This would suggest that there was a day where there there was silver added *and* removed from the trust, suggesting heavy turnover (and tight supply).

Oddly, only 1 bar from Prioksky Russia was added, of 969.3 oz, which is very close to the weight of the 968.4oz bar removed last week. Perhaps someone made a quick sale of a bar and replaced it with one of a very close weight?

17 Aug 2011 Analysis of the 17 Aug 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
5,261,687.9oz were removed (all from Brinks London again), no bars were added or changed.
The bars removed were from: Solar Applied Materials (.8Moz), Met-Mex (.7Moz), Henan Yuguang (.6Moz), Nordeutsche (.5Moz), and 15 others.
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it was overallocated 172.8oz.
Note: For 2 months, the only activity has been with the Brinks London vault, with no activity in the other 4 vaults.
Note: We missed this, but in May the last bars were removed from the Via Mat vault, which now has no SLV silver in it.
Note: We used the 18 Aug 2011 bar list rather than the 17 Aug 2011 bar list, but they should be identical.

The bars added were from: Met-Mex (.6Moz), Prioksky (.5Moz), Shyolkovsky (.2Moz), Solar Applied Materials (.2Moz), and 15 others.
At least one of the bars added was previously in SLV.
Nearly 600,000oz were added and removed since last week (e.g. the bars were added since last week's list, and removed before this week's list, so the bar numbers do not appear here).

As of the time that the bar list was produced, it appears to be overallocated 154.8oz.
So far this month, over 43Moz has been removed from SLV (after the 11.5% 'flash crash' occurred May 1).

As of the time that the bar list was produced, it appears that 360.6oz were in an unallocated account.
Note that almost exactly 20Moz was removed; this is not likely a coincidence.

05 May 2011 Analysis of the 05 May 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
15,607,862.5oz were removed (5.4Moz from Brinks London, 10.2Moz from Via Mat), no ounces were added, and there were no bar changes.
The bars removed were from: Valcambi (2.5Moz), Russian State Refineries (2.3Moz), Henan Yuguang (1.9Moz), Solar Applied Materials (1.8Moz), and 24 others.
The amount removed was huge, move than double the previous record of 7Moz (since early July).
There is a discrepancy again; it appears they publish lists that include partial day's allocations (short -141,666.7oz, 350,592,680.9 bar list versus 350,734,347.6 iShares on Tuesday afternoon). It appears that they are up-to-date through Monday 02 May 2011, and part of the way through Tuesday 03 May 2011. As a result, we cannot see how much is unallocated or overallocated.

28 Apr 2011 Analysis of the 28 April 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
11,113,932.7 ounces were added (7.2Moz to the Brinks London vault, 3.8Moz to the JM vault), no silver was removed. 134 bars had serial number changes, at the Brinks London vault.
The bars added were from: Johnson Matthey (3.9Moz), Russian State Refineries (1.9Moz), Solar Applied Materials (1.9Moz), Henan Yuguang (.6Moz), Yunnan Copper (.6Moz), Inner Mongolia (.6Moz) and 10 others.
The 1.1Moz removed on 21 Apr 2011 was silver that had been added either on 20 Apr 2011 or 19 Apr 2011.
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it appears that it is overallocated 1,477.7oz. This, too, is odd, as it should be overallocated less than the size of one full 1,000oz bar (1,100oz or 1,250oz max).

27 Apr 2011 This analysis was of a bar list dated 27 Apr 2011, that apparently was released by JPM by mistake.
Analysis of the 27 April 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
8,352,065.3 ounces were added (4.5Moz to the Brinks London vault, 3.8Moz to the JM vault), no silver was removed. 134 bars had serial number changes, at the Brinks London vault.
The bars added were from: Johnson Matthey (3.8Moz), Russian State Refineries (1.9Moz), Solar Applied Materials (.7Moz), Yunnan Copper (.6Moz), and 5 others.
We cannot figure out the totals. iShares shows the total as 361,759,548.8oz, the bar list shows 363,418,567.9oz (1,659,019.1 too much). However, the first 3 transactions since last week were 2 additions of around 2Moz, and a withdrawal of about 1Moz. So it sounds like parts of later transactions may have been included, but not earlier transaction. This is highly unusual.
As a result, we cannot determine how much overallocation there may be.

20 Apr 2011 Analysis of the 20 April 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
615,819.1 ounces were added (all to the Brinks London vault), and 7,017,116.8oz were removed. 181 bars were changed, in the Via Mat vault.
The bars added were from: Henan Yuguang (327Koz), Shui Kou Shan (145Koz), and 3 others.
The bars removed were from 14 refiners, 2.7Moz from Met-Mex (which is COMEX approved), and almost all of the rest from Chinese and Russian refiners (LBMA approved, but not COMEX approved).
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it appears that it is short 8,716.9oz for some unknown reason (355,066,502.6oz on the bar list versus 355,075,219.5oz as of Tuesday afternoon). Perhaps it is being sold for expenses.

13 Apr 2011 Analysis of the 13 April 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
2,586,438.4 ounces were added (all to the Via Mat vault), and no bars removed or just 15 changed.
The bars added were from: Valcambi Switzerland (2.5Moz), and 2 others.
Valcambi has not had bars in SLV before (as far as we can tell), and it appears to be newly mined silver. This suggests tightness in the wholesale market, as this silver is being re-directed to SLV from wherever it was previously used.
It appears that JPM is now offering an 'overallocation feature', where they add an extra bar so that no silver needs to be in an unallocated account (so there is a bit more silver than there should be, rather than a bit less).
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it appears that it is overallocated 622.5oz.
02,586,438.4361,467,800.3
07 Apr 2011 Analysis of the 07 April 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
738,014.5 ounces were added, and no bars removed or changed.
The bars added were from: Inner Mongolia Qiankun (318Koz), Great Wall Ref (287Koz), Solar Applied Materials (70Koz), and 2 others.
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it appears that -402.0oz of silver were in an unallocated account (up to 1,100oz can be in an unallocated account, as there are no 459.8oz bars). So there are 402.0 MORE ounces in the bar list than listed on the SLV website. Hmmmm.
ADDED: It appears that the -402.0oz is really part of an 'overallocation' feature, which has not yet been announced.

1,033 bars had serial number changes, due to the ongoing audit (bars in Brinks London, JPM London V and JPM London A).
The bars added were from: OJSC Kolyma (1.5Moz), Russian State Refineries (.8Moz), Solar Applied Materials (.7Moz), Yunnan Copper (.5Moz), and 15 others.
The bars removed were from: Solar Applied Materials (.3Moz), Daye Non-Ferrous Metals (.17Moz), Tongling Nonferrous Metal (.07Moz).
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it appears that 459.8oz of silver were in an unallocated account (up to 1,100oz can be in an unallocated account, as there are no 459.8oz bars).

The bars removed were from: Russian State Refineries (.3Moz), Inner Mongolia Qiankun (.2Moz), Yunnan Copper (30Koz).
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it appears that 514.8oz of silver were in an unallocated account (up to 1,100oz can be in an unallocated account, as there are not any 514.8oz bars).

10 Mar 2011 Analysis of the 10 March 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
Major changes this week. The bar list now appears to be produced on Thursday, and in a very different format. And JPM added a new vault: Johnson Matthey's Royston vault.
We show 420 bar serial number changes; this was due to errors in the previous lists where the refiner name would overwrite part of the serial number field.
6,687,715.5 ounces were added, with no bars removed.
The bars added were from: Johnson Matthey UK (2.0Moz), Solar Applied Materials (1.4Moz), John Betts UK (1.3Moz), Russian State Refineries (.9Moz), and 9 others. Apparently JM sold part of their silver holdings as part of the deal of having SLV silver in their vault.
This week seems to clear up the discrepancies. Although the bar list shows 350,382,508.4oz, and iShares shows 352,824,122.5oz, if we take out the Tuesday and Wednesday deposits (2,440,772.0oz) from the iShares list, we get 350,383,350.5oz, which is within the 1,100oz tolerance (unallocated account) of the bar list.
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it appears that 842.1oz of silver were in an unallocated account (up to 1,100oz can be in an unallocated account, as there may not be any 842.1oz bars).
06,687,715.5350,382,508.4
04 Mar 2011 Analysis of the 04 March 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
10,089,400.0 ounces were added, with no bars removed or changed.
The bars added were from: Russian State Refineries (2.5Moz), Met-Mex Penoles Mexico (2.2Moz), Krasnoyarsk Russia (1.5Moz), Henan Yuguang (.9Moz), Yunnan Copper (.6Moz), Inner Mongolia Qiankun (.6Moz), and 22 others.
There is a discrepancy between the amount of silver added per the bar list (10,089,400.0oz added) and the amount added per the iShares website (12,481,974.0oz added, not including Thursday's deposit). That's 2,392,574.0oz that should be in the bar list, but is not yet. It is not evenly divisible by the amount of silver in a basket, which is a bit disturbing (but could be explained, for example, if some silver was sold to meet the trust's .5% annual fee). Let's hope there is no discrepancy next week, this is 2 weeks in a row (although last weeks was easily explainable).
It is impossible to tell how much silver is in the unallocated account, because of the discrepancy. Up to 1,100oz can be in an unallocated account.
There is also a unusual 'in and out' trend we have noticed. There is a group of bars that was removed 21 Jan 2011, added back 18 Feb 2011, removed 25 Feb 2011, and added back 04 Mar 2011. What it means we do not know, but it is a new pattern.
010,089,400.0343,694,792.9
25 Feb 2011 Analysis of the 25 February 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
1,610,545.9 ounces were added, and 2,733,581.3oz were removed (all to the Brinks London vault). We detected 14 bars had auditing changes to the serial numbers.
The bars added were from: Rand Refinery (.6Moz), JBR Recovery UK (.6Moz), Met-Mex Penoles (.26Moz), and 6 other refiners.
The bars removed were from: Russian State Refineries (1.2Moz), Inner Mongolia Qiankun (.5Moz), Yunnan Copper (.46Moz), Asarco (.17Moz), and 13 others.
There is a discrepancy between the amount of silver removed per the bar list (1,123,035.4oz removed) and the amount added per the iShares website (5,272,872.1oz added). It appears as though only 22 of the 153 baskets of silver deposited on Thurday made it to the bar list (suggesting at least 2 separate deposits that day). Each basket should have 48,822.400oz, so the 'missing' 131 baskets would add up to 6,395,734.4oz, which matches the 6,396,237.9oz discrepancy.
It appears as though there are 503.5oz of silver in the unallocated account, but because of the discrepancy, it is not possible to confirm this. Up to 1,100oz can be in an unallocated account.
The bar list is short 6,396,237.9oz from Thursday's deposit, with an extra 2.9Moz deposited Thursday that should appear on next week's list.

18 Feb 2011 Analysis of the 18 February 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
1,318,259.6 ounces were added (all to the Brinks London vault). No bars were removed or changed.
The bars added were from: Russian State Refiners (.62Moz), Asarco (.2Moz), Johnson Matthey USA (.19Moz), and 15 other refiners. It looks like at least one basket was of 'old' silver (U.S. Assay Office, Engelhard, Handy Harmon from 1990, etc.)
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it appears that 164.5oz of silver were in an unallocated account (up to 1,100oz can be in an unallocated account, as there are no 164.5oz bars).
.9Moz of silver was added yesterday, that will be reflected on next week's bar list.
01,318,259.6334,728,428.3
11 Feb 2011 Analysis of the 11 February 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
976,056.2 ounces were removed (all from the Brinks London vault). No bars were added or changed.
The bars removed were from just 5 refiners, with 0% of the silver from COMEX approved refiners (so none can be used directly to settle COMEX short positions).
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it appears that 165.9oz of silver were in an unallocated account (up to 1,100oz can be in an unallocated account, as there are no 165.9oz bars).
.6Moz of silver was added yesterday, that will be reflected on next week's bar list.
It appears that all of the silver that was removed is silver that was added in the first two weeks of December, 2010.
976,056.20333,410,168.7
04 Feb 2011 Analysis of the 04 February 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
1,494,897.1 ounces were removed (all from the Brinks London vault). No bars were added or changed.
The bars removed were from 10 refiners, with only about 26% of the silver from COMEX approved refiners.
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it appears that 823.7oz of silver were in an unallocated account (up to 1,100oz can be in an unallocated account, as it would be very hard to find an 823.7oz bar).
Another 1Moz of silver was removed yesterday, that will be reflected on next week's bar list.
Of note, on Wednesday 3 basket's worth of silver (150,000 shares' worth) were removed, but the number of shares was not reduced. We are unsure what would account for this (but have not been tracking daily changes for long). If it were sold for expenses, it would not need to be an exact 3 baskets.
1,494,897.10334,386,224.9
28 Jan 2011 Analysis of the 28 January 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
4,673,914.7 ounces were removed (from the Brinks London vault), and 570,859.5 oz were added (to the Brinks London vault), for a net 4,103,055.2 oz removed. 20 bars in the JPM London V vault, and 1 in the Brinks London vault had the serial numbers changed slightly (e.g. 200908111 to 20090811A1), due to obvious typos. It looks like the auditors moved from the JPM London V vault to the Brinks London vault this week.
The bars removed were from 10 refiners, with 58% of the refiners COMEX approved (compared to about 10% or so of silver removed in late 2010).
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it appears that just 128.9oz of silver were in an unallocated account (up to 1,100oz can be in an unallocated account, as they don't make 1,000oz bars that weigh 128.9oz).
Another .7Moz of silver was removed yesterday, that will be reflected on next week's bar list.
The 58% of the removed silver that is COMEX deliverable was all from one refiner, making it hard to tell if this is a continuation of the trend of removing mostly COMEX deliverable silver. More details here.

21 Jan 2011 Analysis of the 21 January 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
4,835,113.0 ounces were removed (from the 2 JPM London A and Brinks London vaults). 8 bars in the JPM London V vault had the serial numbers changed slightly (e.g. 9772610 to 97172610), due to obvious typos. The auditors are still in the JPM London V vault.
The bars removed were from 28 refiners, with 61% of the refiners COMEX approved (compared to about 10% or so of silver removed in late 2010).
As of the time that the bar list was produced, it appears that just 28.3oz of silver were in an unallocated account (up to 1,100oz can be in an unallocated account, as they don't make 1,000oz bars that weigh 28.3oz ).
Another 1.6Moz of silver was removed yesterday, that will be reflected on next week's bar list.
To us, it looks like an AP (almost certainly JPM) 'cherry picked' the 2.9Moz (of the 4.8Moz removed) of bars they redeemed to get only bars that are COMEX approved, which will most likely appear soon in COMEX warehouses in the U.S. Interestingly, some of this COMEX-specific silver came from the Brinks vault. More details here!.
About as much silver has been removed from SLV in the past 2 weeks (12.7Moz, including yesterday's 1.6Moz) as was removed in the last 6 months of 2010 (12.5Moz).

14 Jan 2011 Analysis of the 14 January 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
6,297,160.5 ounces were removed (from the 2 JPM vaults). No bars were added. 15 bars had auditing changes.
The bars removed were from 32 refiners, with 95% of the refiners COMEX approved (unlike the 90% or so of silver removed in December, which was not).
The bars that changed were all from the JPM London V vault, and changed refiner and serial number (the last 1-3 digits of the serial numbers as recorded before were correct, but the missing digits were added).
To us, it looks like an AP (almost certainly JPM) 'cherry picked' the 6.3Moz of bars they redeemed to get only bars that are COMEX approved, which will most likely appear soon in COMEX warehouses in the U.S. This was not the case with the 5.8Moz withdraw in December, 2010 (90% of which was from non-COMEX-approved refiners). You saw it here first!. More details here!.

07 Jan 2011 Analysis of the 07 January 2011 bar list, and comparison to the previous week's list.
586,420.6 ounces were added (all to the Brinks London). No bars were removed. 18 bars had auditing changes.
All of the bars added were from Russian State Refineries (which has often supplied silver to SLV in the past 6 months).
One bar has the serial changed from '78741' to '7841' (typo), and 17 bars had their serials changed from '200545xx' to '200845xx' (a typo that affected bars added 01 Oct 2010, after the last audit). Looking at the bar numbers added on 01 Oct 2010, it seems clear that it was a typo.

Silver ETF (SLV) Bar List Analysis

Shortly after the SLV silver ETF was started, they started offering a list of the bars in the trust to help alleviate concerns that the public had that the bars may not exist. Shortly after the list was published, people noticed what appeared to be the same bars listed twice. This is because London Good Delivery bars can be uniquely identified by the refiner, the serial number, and the year (the weight appears on the bar, but there can only be one bar with the same refiner, serial number, and year). The SLV bar list only includes the year if it is included as part of the serial number (e.g. '2010-1234'), not if it appears elsewhere on the bar.

We are aware of one organization that took the time to go through the list of bars, and look for duplicates. But they did not seem to understand why the duplicates are occurring, so their report made it sound like there was fraud involved. But to our knowledge, nobody has attempted to analyze the bar lists (or compare them to one another). So we set out to do so.

It isn't an easy task, with 300,000 or so bars in an 8,000 page .PDF file. Fortunately, the .PDF file is no longer secured, but Adobe Reader crashes if you try to export the text, so other methods are required for extracting the data. But we managed to do it!

Our analysis files include a lot; they have a breakdown of warehouses and refiners, a list of all bars added or removed in the previous week, changes in serial numbers, changes in refiners, etc.

What we found was that nothing appears amiss. There are lots of the bars that have the same refiner and serial number (with an unknown year), but they are clustered to specific refiners (which is normal, as many refiners do not duplicate serial numbers), and the weights appeared to be distributed properly (with the vast majority of 'duplicate' bars having different weights, as would be expected).

Please note that these pages are an attempt at analyzing the bar list as it is reported by iShares. That's part of why this page is here (so if there is erroneous data, it will be easier to detect). Also important to note is that the bars could be encumbered in some way; that is impossible to know (e.g. if they are leased). It is also worthy to note that there are some shares of SLV sold short (as is the case with most stocks), and these shares have no silver backing them (but the shares with no backing are ones borrowed from people with margin accounts, who accept such risk, knowingly or not).

Without further ado, for those that have as much free time on their hands as we do, or who love boring stuff, here's the data!

[22 Nov 2010 Note: There was a glitch in our analysis software, that caused bars from a new refinery to not be counted, causing out some of our counts to be off, such as 'bars added' and the total counts. This has been fixed. Some of the 'added', 'removed', and 'current' totals in earlier reports may be off slightly.]
