Eric Sprott Says GFMS Stats Are Flawed (11/18/13) Demand for gold bars, coins and jewelry increased to multiyear highs in the first half of 2013, but was offset by outflows from exchange-traded funds, according to the World Gold Council, which produces a quarterly Gold Demand Trends report and recently released the first-ever Direct Economic Impact of Gold report. Sprott Securities founder Eric Sprott questioned those statistics in a callout on his website.
