Nova Scotia offered up 406,700 ounces of gold from their house account for the first delivery day in August. That is the biggest number I have seen in some time.
And they sold it at what was close to the low for yesterday at $1,332. That’s what one gets when they sell big in an active month which August is for gold. What were they thinking?
The silver deliveries were fairly inconsequential for August, so I did not bother to update them.
Uncle Buck, aka la douleur du monde, took the gas pipe on that horrible GDP number, at 1.2% versus 2.6% expected, with a downward revision to 0.8% in the prior period. No wonder the Fed balked at even a fairly symbolic rate increase this week. They may play dumb, but they know.
