In New York there were sellers of 2.052 tonnes of gold from the SPDR gold ETF but none from the Gold Trust on Thursday. The holdings of the SPDR gold ETF were at 720.615 tonnes and in the Gold Trust at 160.42 tonnes. The euro is also slightly weaker today at $1.2457 down from $1.2473. The main influence on the gold price currently is the level of the euro against the U.S. dollar. We expect this will continue in the short-term at least.
Each day sees more and more people convinced that the Eurozone is headed into a recession as Germany’s exports begin to falter. With China turning inwards to develop its people and utilize the infrastructure it has built, its demand for German goods is dropping. Its intention has always been to replace foreign goods with home- made products over time and this is happening steadily. The E.U. itself is slowing and also lowering the demand for German goods. We cannot see any light at the end of the tunnel that will halt falling growth in the short-term. The failure of member governments to agree on the way forward is reinforcing this negative trend. In turn it is likely that the U.S. will suffer from globally falling growth. As a result gold is being pulled down, but it has completed the major part of its fall to date.
In a conversation with a Swiss banker today, it is becoming more apparent that the Swiss referendum is going to go the way of a “Yes” vote. If so, then there is precious little gold in the market that is freely available to Switzerland. Such a vote would have an explosive impact on the gold price.
