Gold: Lawrence Williams may have a point here

Yes he's obviously pro-gold in his outlook, but Lawrence Williams* isn't one of the permabull rose-tint-specs people either. His piece today entitled "Big purchases into gold ETFs suggest beginnings of change in sentiment" makes a valid point about the signals of a tidal change in attitudes towards bullion ownership in the USA (like it or not, it's still the world's most important market and sets the tone for so many other places) and here's an extract:

"Yesterday saw purchases of 4.166 tonnes into the SPDR gold ETF and a relatively massive purchase of 3.87 tonnes into the Gold Trust. The holdings of the SPDR gold ETF are now at 645.131 tonnes and at 156.42 tonnes in the Gold Trust.  These two purchases confirm a change in attitude towards gold by U.S. investors."

*Or Lawrie to his friends and as I have no friends, Lawrence.
