Silver - The Demand In Action

Although for the last two days gold and silver regained some ground but, generally, precious metals investors feel a lot of pain this year. For example, on July 10 the silver was trading at this year's lowest level  so far.

However, it looks like lower prices of silver attracted a bunch of investors who started aggressive accumulation of this metal. The chart of SLV looks very promising:

As the chart shows, July is an exception. Generally, Western investors buy silver when its prices are going up. And vice versa. However, in July SLV added as many as 9.4 million ounces of silver at lower prices than those reported in June (a loss of 4.2% - look at the blue row  where monthly changes in silver prices are plotted).

I think it is a very positive development for silver bulls.

Interestingly, a new pattern is developing - in May the Chinese withdrew the highest amount of silver from the Shanghai Gold Exchange (which should be read as "in May there was the highest demand for silver bullion in China):

Note that in May SLV reported a highest inflow of silver into its vaults.
