Price Drivers

There were no purchases or sales from or into the SPDR gold ETF or the Gold Trust on Tuesday, once again, despite the slippage in gold prices. The holdings of the SPDR gold ETF are at 773.305 and at 167.75 tonnes in the Gold Trust. 

 

While there is only a week before the Chinese New Year on the 19th February, demand in China is not being allowed to feed through to London or New York as we mentioned yesterday, while traders and speculators move prices around on the back of euro prospects. As gold supplies have fed through to Asia, steadily and persistently at levels that are outrunning newly mined and scrap gold supplies, Asian demand is encouraged by current low prices and likely to increase. But we do expect Chinese demand to lessen in the next week as the holiday begins.

 

There is an almost surreal atmosphere on financial markets in Europe as they await the outcome of today’s meeting to discuss Greece’s demand to lessen the debt burden of Greece. They are facing a wall of opposition from the other member states. Greece has committed itself to getting better terms. We are in no doubt that the new government has extrapolated the possible reactions of the E.U. members and know precisely what steps they will take in each scenario. In true negotiating style the chest beating has to precede the meeting.

 

Looking at the eventualities, we do see the Eurozone losing more than Greece if the Greeks exit from the E.U. simply through a rapidly strengthening euro on foreign exchanges. The E.U. cannot afford that. A weak euro is the blessing Greece brings to the Eurozone. Posturing over debt obligations and the commitments of the previous Greek government will, we expect, bring considerable financial market tension and ensure a Greek exit. It is a choice for Greece to simply fail to pay the debt it can’t afford to and depart with ignominy or to fail in its challenge to the E.U. then, leave the E.U. with bravado, ahead of the default. Let’s see if we see a Greek tragedy or not? [Subscribe to www.GoldForecaster.com & www.SilverForecaster.com].
