The gold price is not falling with the fall in the euro, at the moment. New York may change this, but it is significant that if the gold price continues to stop falling with the euro against the dollar, we may have seen two features kick in. Firstly, it may be that traders and speculators are no longer driving the gold price down and could close their positions and secondly, supply could be dropping while demand is starting to come in again. With only one day of this happening so far it is premature to say if this is a market change, but this may be a feature to watch for next week.
Around 50% of the world’s gold mining companies are now making losses. Close to 100% of platinum mining companies are. Silver miners may be faring better, but as the bulk of silver is produced as a by-product of base metal mining we do not think silver production itself will be hurt by lower prices. Scrap sales of gold are down as sellers are seeing prices too low, so market supply overall is falling.
The euro lurched another 1% lower to $1.2385 this morning. With Mario Draghi repeating his commitment to expand quantitative easing likely before the end of the year gold was expected to fall by another 1% overnight, but it hasn’t.
