"Two UK-based funds led European-fund inflows: Invesco Physical Gold added 13.9t (US$749mn, 7.8%), and iShares Physical added 7.2t (US$420mn, 4.2%). Switzerland was the only country with net outflows during the month as UBS ETF Gold lost 15.3t (US$855mn, 37%) and Pictet CH Physical lost 4.2t (US$235mn, 81%) "

US and UK inflows
Swiss outflows?

"Gold ETFs offer some of the same defensive-asset-class traits as bonds, and many investors use them to hedge against economic and political disruptions, as well as currency debasement."

Re: Gold Bugs, What does ETF inflow mean?
i think (*from what i remember) it meant "Electronically Transferred Funds"?

I think it has to do with dating the transaction vs real time transfer to accounts ?

Re: Gold Bugs, What does ETF inflow mean?
I was going to explain this but I NEVER want to make a mistake about investing money. So here is some copy pasta.

An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is a basket of securities that trade on an exchange, just like a stock.

ETF share prices fluctuate all day as the ETF is bought and sold; this is different from mutual funds that only trade once a day after the market closes.

ETFs can contain all types of investments including stocks, commodities, or bonds; some offer U.S. only holdings, while others are international.

ETFs offer low expense ratios and fewer broker commissions than buying the stocks individually.

Basically they (ETF's) are baskets of multiple securities meant to be automatically diverse thus lowering risk.

The Inflow of cash into ETF's that contain either physical Gold or say Gold mining stocks is on the rise. Investors see Gold as a good investment during uncertain times...

hiding
Bing!

Naked shorting should be and is.
Now actually getting the guv to prosecute against their own interests is the clinker.

When enough stand for delivery.
They will default and pay in cash like the prospectus dutifully states.
Physical will go no bid.
Who knows what happens then.

Don't buy gold ETFs. The point of gold is for when the system collapses. ETFs rely on the system and are worthless when the the system is gone. No internet, no electricity, no postal/parcel delivery system, no nothing. Your ETFs are worthless.
