This behavior is coming particularly from the group labeled ‘other reportable’ in commitment of traders disclosures, which includes family offices and high-net-worth individuals. Worried about protecting the value of their fortunes, they are opting for the perceived safety of physical gold. This creates a specific problem for swap dealers, which are run by the bullion banks that make a market in gold.”

USAGOLD note:  For as long as we can remember, USAGOLD has taken the position that the Achilles heel of the paper gold market is investors opting to take delivery of the metal – deliveries the short side of the market would find difficult to meet simply because of the dearth of availability against the amount of capital committed in the market.  Now, according to Authers, that day may be upon us.
