In 2012, MCX has taken the third spot among the global commodity bourses in terms of the number of futures contracts traded. Based on the latest data from Futures Industry Association (FIA), during the period between January and June this year, about 127.8 million futures contracts were traded on MCX.[1]

May 3rd: Silver (30 KG Bar) Total 20432.7952 KG

75% of their inventory gone in a month.

Further, it appears that 9K+ of the current ~23K reported is actually an electronic credit (IOU) or promise to deliver and not actual physical in stock inventory.

24. What is Dematerialisation?
Dematerialisation refers to issue of an electronic credit, instead of a vault/warehouse receipt, to the depositor against the deposit of commodities. Any person seeking to dematerialize a commodity would have to open an account with approved Depository Participant (DPs).

I'm reading all over the place about the complete dearth of silver bars for sale, and the rationing of metals at wholesale warehouses. How long can "they" keep up the charade?

One day, and that day may well be coming soon, "they" will have no alternative but to cover those short bets and let silver do her thing.
