Apparenty Apmex thinks we're near the bottom as they are BTFD with a vengeance. Inventory of 100 ozt silver is al at all time high (since I've been tracking). Sales volume looks like is was still strong across the board.

Strange update today. A few products showed large variance from yesterday, but everything else showed fairly weak sales volume, so it's hard to say if the numbers represented retail buying.

Since it looks like you've been studying this for a while now, have you gotten any word on how accurate these numbers are, or have you been able to extrapolate any price fluctuations to the availability (or lack of) in the bars? I don't mean this to bust your bars either mind you, I'm just curious as to how accurate they are.

The numbers are simply what Apmex shows as available at the time that I check them. It's certainly possible that Apmex pulls inventory or shows as available bars that they have ordered, but not yet received (ie. aren't actually physically in stock). No way to tell for sure.

During periods of high volatility/stress, it was easy to see times when Apmex had no trouble restocking inventory and times when they couldn't.

Having been tracking this for almost 2 years now, I think I've got a pretty good sense of the sales volume flow (whether it's indicative of pure retail selling or includes some wholesale selling to other retailers - doesn't really matter to me).

Do you have this charted against PM prices? Would be interested to see how volumes compare against price swings.

No, I haven't been recording the PM prices, but you can find the average spot price easily on kitco.com (historical charts - yearly charts - select year and click "data" button) like so:

http://www.kitco.com/scripts/hist_charts/yearly_graphs.plx

I'll upload the latest Excel file (to the OP of this thread) in case you are interested in merging the data for analysis.

So it's been a couple of months since I last did an update on this. I decided to take look today ...

The following report details the status as of 11/18 @ ~8am:
  • 10 ozt gold bars - 88
  • 1 ozt gold bars - 2848
  • 100 ozt silver bars - 1549
Across the board, premiums for gold bars sit a bit higher today than they were 2 months ago. Inventories for gold are roughly the same.

Premiums on 100 ozt silver bars are lower than they were 2 months ago while inventories have fallen to levels last recorded at the beginning of August.

So it's been a month since I last did an update on this. I decided to take look today ...

The following report details the status as of 12/19 @ ~8am:
  • 10 ozt gold bars - 110
  • 1 ozt gold bars - 3146
  • 100 ozt silver bars - 1752
Across the board, premiums for gold bars remain unchanged from a month ago. Inventories for gold are up.

Premiums on 100 ozt silver bars are essentially the same as they were a month ago - a few items saw premiums rise $0.10 or so, but the premiums appear to be fairly even across all brands at the moment. Inventory is also up compared to a month ago.
