As you know I reported last night that there was a huge weekly drain of gold from the Brinks vaults.
This follows on a similar drain from JP Morgan's COMEX registered vaults.
There is no increase reported in any of the other COMEX vaults.
The metal bears have three weeks before the first delivery notice day in the August Gold contract.
I believe gold lease rates were negative for a fourth day, which is quite unusual.
As a point of interest, I have included a snapshot of the Café visitors map this afternoon. I think you can see this for yourself in real time by clicking on the map to the left. The clientele changes with the passing of day into night.
This is pretty much all the information that I can see as well, just some simple headcounts with basic locations. There is no need for any more, and it is certainly not worth the trouble or expense of gathering it. The numbers are not large in comparison to many internet sites, but I like to think of the regulars as being rather special, each in their own way.
The participation from around the world is remarkable, and heartening. Asia and the western Pacific will be coming along in a few hours.
The Café is always open, and we keep a light on for you.
Have a pleasant evening.
