I'd be really interested in hearing from anyone who's visited a coin shop this weekend, in the wake of the S&P downgrade news. Have prices remained steady? Seem any more crowded than usual? Are vendors saying anything about changes in business this weekend?
I haven't been to a shop this weekend, but was struck by the very small quantity of many common gold bullion items listed for sale on Nucleo. No full ounce Krugs or Kangaroos at all right now, just one full ounce ingot, few full ounce Maples, and the only full ounce Phil is WAAAAAAY over spot. Seems almost like the sellers are waiting to see what happens when the markets reopen.
