Largest Swiss Refinery Unable to Source Gold

We met with the managing director of the largest refinery in Switzerland and spend about two hours talking to him, we learned some very interesting things.

At this Swiss refinery there have been several times this year on which they were unable to source gold. They’re bringing in good delivery bars, scrap and dore from the mines, basically all they can get their hands on. This gentleman has been in the business for 37 years, he was there during the last bull market in the late seventies. I asked him when was the last time this has happened, that he was unable to source gold, he said never. And I clarified it, I asked: in the last 37 years you’ve worked in the gold industry this has never happened? He said: this has never happened.

He said sometimes when they get gold in, it’s coming from the back corners of the vaults. He knew this because these were good delivery bars marked in the sixties. This is a huge supply squeeze and its worse than anything that has happened in the last four decades. At some point there is going to be a massive squeeze on the price.

We are on the threshold of a situation that has never occurred before. A squeeze is imminent, it could take 3 months or 6 months, but all I know is that it’s coming, and I know that with 100 % certainty.
