Price Drivers

Perhaps the strongest fundamental that came from the World Gold Council report for 2013 was the conclusion that the drop in Indian demand allowed the market to remain balanced between demand & supply. Its return, even in part will disturb that balance in favor of higher prices. So the question of when this will happen becomes key to the future of the gold price, this year. A look at the performance of the Indian Rupee since the election results shows it stronger and likely to strengthen even more.

If in the Credit Swiss case the Swiss bank disclosed the names of individual clients it would have broken Swiss law and meant prison for the CS executives involved. This tells us that Switzerland remains a robust place of safety for law abiding individual’s assets. This means that storage companies with only Swiss based activities is the best place to hold precious metals. A company with wider global activities could be squeezed like UBS & CS have been. But, more importantly gold held in straightforward gold storage companies remains vulnerable too, even there or any other place in the world. Hence the structure of your gold storage company is equally as important as the jurisdiction it is based in. Ignore this to your peril! [contact  ]


Silver – The silver price remains inclined to rise at the slightest opportunity in line with gold. [More in the]
