I purchased a monster box of Maples from "the Tulving Company" this past Friday. I called them today for an update on when they would ship and was advised they are extremely backed up on shipping due to recent large increases of PM orders. Tulving is a large metals broker. I find this to be comforting news as there appears to be elevated demand for physical gold and silver.
So...why aren't the PM equities keeping pace? Go figure! But my guess is that time is on our side.
$16 trillion record debt level is just a whisper away. With the Federal Reserve buying most of the long dated treasuries...something's gotta give!
