Just had a mate email me for info on where he may be able to obtain physical silver in Melbourne. He stated that from his enquiries there seemed to be a growing shortage of silver yet no one seems to want to talk about it.
I have myself noted in the last month or two a growing gap between the Comex price and that of the actual metal.
This link I just picked up from Google http://silver-shortage.blogspot.com/ is of a general nature on the subject. I do have a few of ideas myself on the why's but just thought it worth picking up what others are experiencing or hearing on this subject.
