    @GlobalProTrader @RealDavidJensen @Mist671 @LawrenceLepard @jimeppelin @NedNL @BullionStar @POTUS @themarketear @Jkylebass @ronanmanly While central bank leasing of gold is available to the GLD custodian, then the continued purchasing of GLD shares will not have as big an impact on the gold price as it could since free-float gold is not being used to provide the supply.

The largest gold ETF is the “SPDR Gold Trust,” which is traded on the New York Stock Exchange Arca (NYSE Arca) under the symbol “GLD.” In this article, we will examine how GLD works to understand its role in the gold market and its impact on the gold price….In the primary market, ETF shares are created and redeemed by “Participating Dealers.” It’s mainly through the creation and redemption process of shares that the ETF price tracks the price of the associated asset….One GLD share represents 0.1 ounce of gold….The GLD share price tracks the gold price, mainly through arbitrage….The APs must have been buying gold and creating shares….Their incentive for creating shares was likely that the GLD price (occasionally) was trading at a premium to the spot gold price.
