Another down day for the precious metal stocks. A not-surprising withdrawal from GLD, but no changes in SLV. A sales report from the U.S. Mint. Not much in/out movement in gold at the Comex-approved depositories on Friday, but very decent movement in silver once again.
8/26/14 2:21AM

The precious metal equities close marginally lower. No reported changes in either GLD or SLV---and no sales report from the U.S. Mint. More gold deposited at the Comex-approved depositories once again---and huge in/out movements in silver on Thursday. Except for Ted Butler and myself, no one asks why.
8/23/14 3:54AM
Precious metal equities get smacked. No changes in either GLD or SLV. A tiny sales report from the U.S. Mint. More gold shipped out of the Comex-approved depositories on Wednesday---and big in/out movement in silver once again.

Precious metal equities finish unchanged. Another deposit in GLD and, surprisingly, in SLV as well. A decent sales report from the U.S. Mint. No in/out movement in gold at the Comex-approved depositories on Tuesday---but a another big chunk of silver was deposited.
