NAV Premiums of Certain Precious Metal Trusts and Funds

The gold/silver ratio has fallen from its extremes down to something less lofty but still on the high side.

PSLV premium has turned solidly positive. Will wonders never cease?  Let's see if gold turns positive as well.  I suspect this will not happen until gold has broken through overhead resistance, and a short squeeze gets underway.

The Central Trusts still lag a bit. As you know I have speculated that this may be because they have no redemption process.   Other than this, the metals there have what is considered the 'right kind' of pedigree and are audited twice a year with an external auditor.
