COMEX Inventories Are Going Down

We see all of these weird things like this gold leaving London to go to Switzerland. I mean that’s a serious amount of gold -- almost 800 tons in six months. 800 tons is about 1/3 of (annual) mine supply, in half a year. If it kept going at that pace it would total 2/3 of (annual) mine supply for a whole year.

So there are all of these things going on in the gold market that tell you there is a shortage. Our own analysis of the supply/demand (also) tells us there is a shortage. The GOFO rate being negative, backwardation in gold, COMEX inventories going down, shipments from London to Asia, the activity on the Shanghai Gold Exchange, they are all saying the same thing (that there is a shortage of available physical gold).
