    DMAC, let's sticky this. It will be helpful all year. Thanks for compiling it.

    Here is a useful article which shows history of some of these days through June.

    Re: Metals Calendar - Futures, Options, Dates

    Harvey Organ says today July 16 is options expiry - but it's not listed on the "official list".

    Anybody know what Harvey is talking about, in his Thursday July 15 market wrap-up ?

    "It is also interesting that GLD options expire tomorrow. Although there really is no metal behind this vehicle, the cartel does not need to see a massive call option turn into a possession of GLD and then turn that into an obligation to get metal."

    Are GLD options important enough to make it on the official GS-US list ?

    Judging by the 8:30 AM Eastern time cram-down ($1205 to $1195), we are seeing the kind of volatility we expect on options days.

    I think Harvey Organ is referring only to GLD options expiration, which happen monthly on the 3rd Friday of each month, IIRC. Yes, given that GLD is a prime tool of the cartel's manipulation scheme, it was smart of you to bring it up gunDriller.

    Ted Butler also thinks so, check his latest on King World News:

    July 10th 2010 Metals Wrap Up



    Here is Jesse's current analysis on GLD's options expiration effect on the gold price:


    Gold Daily Chart, Overhead Resistance, the 50 DMA, and GLD Option Expiry MaxPain


    snip

    This could be tied to the option expiration tomorrow in the GLD ETF. This has become a major trading instrument for cross trades in the metal, and is convenient because it has a tenuous relationship to the physical bullion market.
    Here is an interesting page, put GLD in the ticker:

    Here is a chart on the Gold dates we have left this year, from Jesse's Cafe:

    Gold and Silver Option Expiration Dates Remaining in 2010


    18 June 2010

    Not all expirations are equally influential on the markets. As in the case of stocks it depends on the popularity of the contract, and of course the size and distribution of puts and calls at the various strike prices.

    Investors can ignore these 'wiggles.' I tend to keep them in mind for entry and exit purposes for non-futures positions, and potential hedging in my trading portfolio.

    Let's see if Harvey is right again today. He said:

    "Unlike the Gold and silver puts and calls, the dominate position here are the calls. you will see that the huge concentration of calls surround 1220.00. You can be sure that gold will settle close to that level tomorrow." [Friday 7/16]

    So far we are way off ($1188 as I write), so watch for elevator up towards the end of COMEX (1:30 PM), or possibly on the Globex after COMEX close.

    thanks a lot. looks useful.

    now i just have to figure it out ! 8)

    i can't help but wonder how much the timing of the price smash-downs has to do with the imminent lunch-hour of the JPMorgan crew.

    if they have a hot date on a Friday, do they hang it up at 11:30 AM ? i mean, they're only human.

    it seems like most of the activity occurs on NYMEX between 8 AM and noon, then sometimes on NY Globex or London a few hours earlier.

    Is it normal for the metal markets to be open on Thanksgiving?
    But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint - Isaiah 40:31

    Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. ~
    Matthew 7:7
