This is a YTD chart of Gold versus Gold stocks Index. Note that the Gold outstanding exposure of the GLD ETF is close to all time high while Gold price is losing ground. If the outstanding quantity reflects the demand of Gold ownership, the divergence gets more questionable/interesting especially when you consider Gold stocks' massive underperformance.
