Since the beginning of March the Shanghai Futures Exchange (SFE) has reported silver outflows. What is more, last week as many as 4.0 million ounces of silver were withdrawn from the SFE vaults (spot the red bar on the lower panel of the chart).

There are two possible answers:

- the withdrawals are an indication of the decreasing demand
