All the last updates I produced for gold/silver, GDX/SIL, and TLT/IEF and the U.S. stock market remain unchanged. Markets are like a coiled spring, and the final breakout will likely carry out significant follow-through.
However, while markets remain range-bound, something is going on with physical gold. I recently found a Bloomberg article indicating that Shanghai's gold is commanding a $120 premium over international prices. Is this normal? Is there a shortage of physical gold and an overabundance of paper gold? I still don't know, but the chart is telling.
Furthermore, I got to know that premiums for gold bars in Switzerland are also going to the roof. Temporary scarcity of physical vs. paper gold? Future events will shed more light.
