Price Drivers

With a day to contemplate the new proposals from the Greek government it appears that they have been rejected by the E.U.  Indeed, Tsipras informed the media that these proposals had been rejected already. But the markets have not reacted to this yet. There is a further emergency meeting of the E.U. Finance Ministers this evening, at which their counter proposals will be pressed upon the Greeks. The E.U. have rejected more taxes on the wealthy knowing they will not be paid. From where we stand, the proposals of more taxes, in a country where tax evasion is a national sport also seem meaningless. A slow increase in the pensionable age [currently 50] may well not be seen as substantive enough. It also seemed only possible, that the Greek Parliament would support the proposals in the first place. Further demands from the E.U. may prove too much for the Parliament.


The E.U. have handed counter proposals back to Greece for today’s meeting. Tomorrow we will see the way forward [it’s hoped]. Meanwhile, currency markets seem to be marking time.


Was yesterday’s fall a result of the seeming agreement between the E.U. and Greece? We think not, but the speculators that ran at the gold and silver prices did so, thinking an agreement between the E.U. and Greece was factored into the price. The failure of the gold and silver prices to rise today tells us that Greece is not a factor. What will be a factor is a failure to reach an agreement between the two this week.


India’s plan to monetize gold inside the country has just received a mortal blow from the Reserve Bank of India, who said that banks would start to hoard gold if the scheme to monetize gold went forward. We did not think it was a starter when it was first put forward.


The Indian gold market is in quiet season still and gold demand is only reactive to lower prices.


Reports from China show that demand as measured by the Shanghai Gold Exchange remains robust. But it does appear that this demand is not being fed by either the London or the New York markets, yet, which explains the independent road the London and New York markets are walking.


There were no sales or purchases into or from the SPDR or the Gold Trust on Tuesday. The holdings of the SPDR gold ETF are at 705.475 tonnes and at 167.79 tonnes in the Gold Trust.                                                                                                                                       



Silver– Silver may weaken with gold, as it waits for Greece.     Subscribe
