Remember the tests in school? Name the next number in this sequence: 124,500, 68,000, X. What will it be? Gold bullion Eagle buyers would love to know. The first two numbers were monthly 1-ounce sales for January and February. Dealers have hailed the strong level of demand in the first two months. What will happen in March? Anything is possible with
nearly two weeks of sales left, but the current 1-ounce gold sales number of 31,500 raises the possibility that March 2013 sales will not equal the 57,500 number achieved in March 2012.
So what’s the next number in the sequence? We will have to wait another couple of weeks to find out.
