In more news from India, Andrew Maguire reports that record gold buying is anticipated in the nation, as festival season gets underway.
Standard Chartered bank competing with JP Morgan
According to Andrew Maguire, Standard Chartered bank has begun competing with JP Morgan to buy up every refined wholesale 1000 oz silver bar available. The Indian bank appears unphased by the delivery and transportation costs, purchasing the silver bullion at a very large premium to spot.
Andrew Maguire believes the bank’s apparent lack of concern with the additional costs, indicate that Standard Chartered is moving aggressively into physical silver. In Andrew Maguire’s opinion, another major COMEX market maker joining JP Morgan in the hunt for physical silver is a clear indicator of heightened global physical silver demand.
As Andrew Maguire sees it, news that every single ounce of silver production is being aggressively competed for is an extremely bullish driver for silver.
