    Glad I bought gold before all these shenanigans. I am upset that I didn't get more.

    I think what's happening is that the folks who want silver in industrial quantities, who would be willing to cart off Good Delivery Bars, aren't that hungry for it at the moment because industrial activity is depressed.

    Folks who want it in small quantities are more excited, and willing to pay more. (For purposes of this argument, a monster box is a small quantity.)

    I have got to believe that when things go back to some semblance of normalcy that we will see a huge glut of cheap silver available.

    I'm sure we'll see the premiums relax, but I have no idea about the underlying spot price. I can imagine arguments for an increase, a decrease, both, or neither.

    (As always... :rolleyes:)

    Just like certain foods, panic buying so charge whatever and someone will pay it.

    Howdy folks,

    There is a divergence between the official POG and POS - we can call the paper price - and the 'street' prices which refers to physical bullion. This divergence is reflected in the higher premiums. Classic economic example of what happens with artificial price controls. Happened in the 70's with price controls on gasoline. All of a sudden everyone was out of gas. Happening right now with money. Interest rates are around zero but try to find a 30 year fixed around zero. Sorry, no money. Now if you're willing to pay 3-4%? Well, maybe I can find some money.

    This is what is happening in the bullion market. The paper bullion market is sketchy on a good day. I'm not a conspiracy type, but when you see short volume exceeding known quantities of metals you have to wonder is the price is artificially low. Whether it is or not, doesn't really matter, it's what holders of precious metals think. If they feel their bullion is worth more than listed official price and unless the buyer is willing to pay. Sorry, no bullion today.

    Looking around at the macro economy, I'm leading towards the official price is too low.

    and so it goes,

    The prices on gold and silver is ridiculous right now! Problem is the Corona issue, people are out of work and the economy is at a standstill, it's not moving at all! :banghead: Most people, me included believe the POG is gonna go up and normally it would but not with an economy that is stagnant! These are terrible times for PM's but not if you're selling! :D

    This all happened in 2013 when silver fell from $30 to around $20. It took a while for everything to calm down as there was a run on “consumer” physical metal products. I seem to remember it wasn’t until into 2014 when you could find silver eagles for less than a $3 premium.

    I'm going to wait until all the usual 1 oz and 10 oz bars are in stock. by then the prices should be more competitive
