It's been 3 days since the last report.

The following report details changes from 3/15 @ ~9am to 3/18 @ ~9am:
  • 10 ozt gold bars - from 125 to 89. Perth (-5), JM "poured" (-1), Pamp (-10), generic no assay (-10), Credit Suisse (-10)
  • 1 ozt gold bars - from 3595 to 3860. Apmex (-17), Pamp (+396), Pamp YotD (-5), Credit Suisse (-82), Perth (-5), Heraeus (-1), Scotiabank (-1), generic with assay (-11), generic no assay (+1), Sunshine V2 (-6), RCM (-4)
  • 100 ozt silver bars - from 427 to 395. Apmex (-11), RCM (+10), JM "new" (-26), generic secondary market (-2), Englehard secondary market (-5), JM secondary market (+4), Englehard "struck" (-2 sold out), Englehard "bull logo" (+1), Academy (-1)

Sales volume on 1ozt gold appears to have been strong for weekend, but the inventory reduction in 10ozt gold was *huge* for a weekend. However, the reductions for specific brands being multiples of 5 seem conspicuous to me - like they might be wholesale sales to another dealer. Apmex frequently stocks their 10ozt gold bar inventory in multiples of 5.

Sales volume in 100ozt silver was also very strong for a weekend.

The following report details changes from 3/28 @ ~8am to 3/29 @ ~9am:
  • 10 ozt gold bars - from 147 to 169. Perth (+11), JM "pressed" (+1), Pamp (+12), Credit Suisse (-2)
  • 1 ozt gold bars - from 3792 to 4461. Apmex (-8), Pamp (+279), Pamp YotD (+71), Credit Suisse (+315), Perth (-22), Heraeus (-2), Argor-Heraeus (+42), Scotiabank (-3), generic with assay (-3), generic no assay (-1), Heraeus "RNB" (+1)

Apmex restocked gold bars aggressively - especially the 1ozt inventory which is now at levels last seen on January 18 (this is the 5th largest count for 1ozt gold since I've been tracking).

It appears that Apmex also restocked 100ozt silver bars (Apmex brand), but the overall inventory still went down because of very strong sales volume in other brands.

While Apmex seems to be well stocked, my LCS is bitching about supply constriction. He tells me that his orders are taking much longer to fill and that ASE's, AGE's, Phillies and Kooks are getting harder and harder to source in volume and at prices he is willing to pay.

The following report details changes from 4/1 @ ~8am to 4/2 @ ~8am:
  • 10 ozt gold bars - from 165 to 161. Pamp (-4)
  • 1 ozt gold bars - from 4300 to 4693. Apmex (-5), Pamp (-19), Pamp YotD (-3), Credit Suisse (+435), Perth (-6), generic with assay (-1), generic no assay (-1), RCM (-6), Heraeus RNB (-1 sold out)
  • 100 ozt silver bars - from 293 to 263. Apmex (-28), RCM (+5), JM "new" (-9), generic secondary market (-3 sold out), Englehard secondary market (+5)
Strong sales volume for 10ozt gold and 100ozt silver. Looks like weak volume for 1ozt gold.

Apmex's inventory for 1ozt gold is near it's all time high (as far as I've been tracking). Conversely, their inventory for 100ozt silver is sub-300 again - well below half of their average (~575) and median (~597) inventory levels (over the span of time that I've been tracking).
