It's been three days since the last update ...

The following report details changes from 3/2 @ ~9am to 3/5 @ ~10am:
  • 10 ozt gold bars - from 40 to 48. Perth Mint (-1) and Pamp Suisse (+9) were the changes.
  • 1 ozt gold bars - from 1204 to 1232. Credit Suisse (-174) was the biggest seller. They restocked Pamp Suisse (+161) and Perth Mint (+56) [or maybe just switched ~160 bars from Credit Suisse to Pamp Suisse listing].
  • 100 ozt silver bars - from 807 to 766. Looks like they sold a little bit of most everything.

So far, they are able to keep up........Let's wait until the raid is finished and physical buyers are back in the picture.

It's been four days since the last update ...

The following report details changes from 3/5 @ ~10am to 3/9 @ ~9am:
  • 10 ozt gold bars - from 48 to 43.
  • 1 ozt gold bars - from 1232 to 1309. They list 136 bars of Apmex brand that won't ship until April 6. I suppose actual inventory is closer to 1173.
  • 100 ozt silver bars - from 766 to 804.

It's been six days since the last update. I let this slip a bit just as things were getting interesting with the paper market spot price. I will try to keep a closer eye on this over the next few days.

The following report details changes from 3/9 @ ~9am to 3/15 @ ~9am:
  • 10 ozt gold bars - from 43 to 60. Perth Mint (-13), Pamp Suisse (+26)
  • 1 ozt gold bars - from 1309 to 2261. They list 116 bars of Apmex brand that won't ship until April 6. They show a massive 1,428 bars of Pamp Suisse available. They also added a new category "Heraeus" with 110 bars available.
  • 100 ozt silver bars - from 804 to 738. Increase in "Englehard or Johnson Matthey" (+26) was more than offset by sales of Royal Canadian Mint bars (-51) and Apmex (-26) among others.

Seems like Apmex took advantage of the recent smash in the futures spot price to restock on gold bars. Interesting to see that they didn't follow suit with silver bars.

i'm not really sure how to read into this. I don't really want inventories to be building honestly.

I'm not too sure what to read into this either. It is interesting, but is it indicative in any way that would assist decision-making (by revealing trends). The sampling of companies may be too small to be a true reflection of the larger picture - at least on a short time scale.

The following report details changes from 3/15 @ ~9am to 3/16 @ ~9am:
  • 10 ozt gold bars - from 60 to 57. Perth Mint (+7), Pamp Suisse (-10)
  • 1 ozt gold bars - from 2261 to 2303. They list 112 bars of Apmex brand that won't ship until April 6. Pamp Suisse (-155), Credit Suisse (+219). Most every else showed a bit of selling.
  • 100 ozt silver bars - from 738 to 760. Johnson Matthey (-12), Royal Canadian Mint (+45) and Apmex (-9) were the big changes.

Even though inventories rose slightly over all, it appears that the volume of selling definitely picked up with the spot price lower than it was last week.

The following report details changes from 3/16 @ ~9am to 3/17 @ ~9am:
  • 10 ozt gold bars - from 57 to 53. Perth Mint (-4)
  • 1 ozt gold bars - from 2303 to 2217. Pamp Suisse (-50) was the big seller. Most every else showed a bit of selling.
  • 100 ozt silver bars - from 760 to 760. "Englehard or Johnson Matthey" (+4) offset by individual sales of 4 other bars.

Tulving says they have over 350 of the 100ozt silver "Englehard or Johnson Matthey" bars in stock. They also say that Johnson Matthey just restarted production of 1ozt bars which I found interesting.

It's been two days since the last report.

The following report details changes from 3/19 @ ~11am to 3/21 @ ~11am:
  • 10 ozt gold bars - from 57 to 57. They sold two and added two.
  • 1 ozt gold bars - from 2124 to 1853. Pamp Suisse (-129) and Credit Suisse (-85) led the pack.
  • 100 ozt silver bars - from 746 to 752. A lot of changes netted out to not much difference. Hard to tell if the changes were sales/purchases or just moving inventory from one category to another (ie. Johnson Matthey to "Englehard or Johnson Matthey", other brands to "various"). They lowered the premium on the Ohio Precious Metals bars to a more competitive level versus the other brands they are carrying.

OK, I was finally able to get through.

The following report details changes from 3/22 @ ~9am to 3/23 @ ~9am:
  • 10 ozt gold bars - from 77 to 80.
  • 1 ozt gold bars - from 2102 to 2037. Moderate selling all around, no restocking seen.
  • 100 ozt silver bars - from 749 to 897. They added Apmex (+152) while selling a bit of most everything else.

Seems to me that Apmex has successfully increased their inventories over this last week as the spot price of the metals went down.

The following report details changes from 3/23 @ ~9am to 3/24 @ ~9am:
  • 10 ozt gold bars - from 80 to 80.
  • 1 ozt gold bars - from 2037 to 2144. Perth (+95), Apmex (+24) and ScotiaBank (+25) restocking was offset by moderate selling.
  • 100 ozt silver bars - from 897 to 925. They added "Englehard or Johnson Matthey" (+31) while selling a few bars here and there.

Sales volume seems to have slowed down and the restocking continues.

The following report details changes from 3/26 @ ~10am to 3/27 @ ~10am:
  • 10 ozt gold bars - from 80 to 85.
  • 1 ozt gold bars - from 2042 to 2467. Broad restocking seen in multiple brands - Pamp Suisse (+185), Credit Suisse (+58), Perth Mint (+78), ScotiaBank (+10), "generic with assay" (+21), "generic w/o assay" (+82).
  • 100 ozt silver bars - from 895 to 861. Royal Canadian Mint (-21), "Englehard or Johnson Matthey" (-8) led the pack.

Sell volume on the silver was much higher than I recall seeing in a while as gold stocks were increased. Interesting.
