Section: Daily Dispatches 2:46p ET Tuesday, May 14, 2013 Big U.S. investment banks have reduced their net short position in gold to the lowest level since 2008, the Got Gold Report's Gene Arensberg reports today. Arensberg writes: "In just one month, as gold fell a net $123.45 or 7.8 percent (from $1,575.67 on April 2 to $1,452.22 on May 7), U.S. banks covered or offset 60 percent of their net short bets on gold, down to an extremely small 16,781 contracts net short.

Gold buying becomes frantic in India, strongest since 2008 Submitted by cpowell on 05:59AM ET Tuesday, May 14, 2013. Section: Daily Dispatches Gold Rush Spooks Economy as Trade Deficit Surges to $17.8 Billion By Dilasha Seth and Sutanuka Ghosal The Times of India, Mumbai Tuesday, May 14, 2013 http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/economy/indicators/gold-rush-sp... India's gold rush spooked the economy again as frantic purchases in April widened the trade deficit to a disturbing $17.8 billion, but people queued up to buy even more coins and ornaments on an auspicious gold-buying festival on Monday, setting the stage for an even bigger gap between imports and exports.
