Looks like demand for physical gold on the investment side is up. Demand for physical gold for jewelry is down. Demand for paper gold is down (if I understood the ETF demand correctly).

Gold is probably the most undervalued precious metal at this moment. There is talk of a coin that allows you to buy the precious metal.

Christian, I find your statement hard to believe. Historically the gold to silver ratio has been in the neighborhood of 1:16, yet for years the ratio has hovered around 1:70 and today is 1:78 making silver EXTREMELY undervalued compared to gold.
