After many days of withdrawals, there was finally a deposit into GLD, as an authorized participant added precisely 75,000 troy ounces. But there was another huge withdrawal/conversion of shares for physical over at SLV...to the tune of 10,079,433 troy ounces. Under the current conditions in silver, I suspect the latter scenario.
In other gold and silver ETFS and mutual funds on Planet Earth on Thursday, net of any changes in COMEX, GLD & SLV inventories, there was a net 141,962 troy ounces of gold added -- and an knee-wobbling 7,489,950 troy ounces of silver was added as well, with virtually every ounce of that going into SIVR.
There was a sales report from the U.S. Mint yesterday. They sold 26,000 troy ounces of gold eagles -- 2,500 one-ounce 24K gold buffaloes -- and zero silver eagles.
They've certainly been slow pushing out silver eagles over the last few weeks -- and one has to wonder whether that is due to 'production problems', or they can't get good delivery bars because they simply aren't available, or because the powers-that-be don't want to exacerbate an already very tight physical market.
