At SilverAG in Singapore we are well stocked with all various silver bullion and are happy to say sales are robust. However, at least one other bullion shop has publicly stated that silver maples orders are now being delayed.
Whether or not this is sales tactic to cause a buying panic or if indeed it is the truth, the point is there is a high demand for silver. Eventually buyers of silver and perhaps gold also are going to see that the spot price will not reflect the market or retail price. It looks certain that the day may be coming that paper and physical prices will be far apart. The pricing mechanism of market durability is in the East. And ultimately, the East will set and command a higher price for precious metals in the West and all of the world.
