    Just a little update for those who think precious metals demand is going down.

    As you can see, Asians want to pay a premium for precious metals. The west is selling gold, the east is buying gold...

    I assume the zeros reflect the Shanghai market closed due to Chinese New Year.

    SM: I think it means the east is expecting bad economics and doesn't want to be stuck with government paper promises. Also, gold can be traded "invisibly" to avoid gov scrutiny. Hide it. Deny it.
