Stacy Summary: Doom in the silver market if you were hoping to swap your silver for fiat.

Screen Shot 2014-09-19 at 22.06.06

In the paper silver market, ETF buyers have been accumulating silver while dumping gold; in fact the demand for silver to gold ratio is at its highest ever:


The CHART OF THE DAY shows shares outstanding for the biggest U.S. silver ETF surpassing those for the nation’s largest gold fund by the most since 2006, when the iShares Silver Trust was created. Retail buyers are sticking with silver even as prices fell 4.4 percent this year, the most of any precious metal. Gold’s 2 percent gain wasn’t enough to halt declines in selling, and assets in the SPDR Gold Trust are set for a second annual loss. — Bloomberg

And here is the silver supply of the silver ETFs going back to 2006.

I guess the hedgies are selling. Most of the selling is happening in New York where the paper is traded; they’d get a much higher price in China or India if they had physical and cared about fiat profit.

Turkey warns of first bank collapse in a decade

Screen Shot 2014-09-18 at 12.41.07

Turkey faces the prospect of its first bank collapse in at least a decade as Bank Asya (ASYAB) struggles to maintain market confidence amid pressure from President Recep Tayyip Erdogan over its ties to exiled preacher Fethullah Gulen.

The Istanbul-based lender has lost 42 percent of its market value since trading resumed on Sept. 15 after a five-week suspension. Asya said yesterday it’s seeking 225 million liras ($102 million) of fresh capital from shareholders after the loss of deposits and government contracts depleted its finances.

Bank Asya is caught in a political battle after Erdogan accused U.S.-based Gulen of starting a corruption probe against members of his government in December. The feud has spilled into business, where companies with links to Gulen such as Asya and mining company Koza Altin Isletmeleri AS (KOZAL) say they’ve been subject to negative regulatory actions and news reports.
