Financial Crisis III: Stores of Precious Metals in Trusts and Funds – Junk Bond and Credit Market Concerns

by Jesse

Here is the state of the gold and silver holdings in trusts and funds.

In other matters, there were two articles about risks in the credit markets that caught my eye this weekend.

These *could be* stories spread by market operators who are hoping for turmoil in the junk bond markets.

Or on the other hand this could be signs of something which some have feared would be approaching, as we seem to keep repeating the behaviours that prompted the last two financial crises this century.

The truth is hard to discern these days— it has few friends, and even fewer willing to stand for it.

Nevertheless, I thought it would be appropriate to bring them to your attention, for what it is worth.
