Gold bullion holdings in the SPDR Gold Shares ETF (GLD)

Which is of course the biggest gold ETF in the world by quite some way and the industry demand benchmark (like it or not, hardcore bugs):

NB: Please note the cut-down Y-axis
  • It started 2016 at 642.37 metric tonnes.
  • This weekend it holds 869.26 metric tonnes.
  • That's a difference of 226.89 metric tonnes.
Or if you prefer, at this weekend's spot price there's an extra U$9.133Bn worth of gold in the GLD vaults. Not shabby.
