Price Drivers

It now appears that if Greece misses next week’s payment to the I.M.F. they will not have defaulted, but only be “in arrears”, a state allowed by the I.M.F. With no progress in these negotiations and with little evidence of Greece’s ability to pay the due amounts, the structure of the negotiations needs to change. That can only happen if Greece ‘defaults’. Then creditors have to face a reality that they now they have as much of a structural crisis as Greece does. So don’t expect a last minute solution. Rather expect more drama next week. But nothing is certain these days. [For more on this - Subscribe www.goldForecaster.com ]

 

Meanwhile, the interest rate differentials between the E.U. and U.S. continue to place upward pressure on the dollar. In the last week, the foreign exchange markets have been loath to respond to this pressure holding the $: € exchange rate around $1.12: €1 through the week. We do see pressure rising and should we be correct in our expectations on Greece, we expect volatility to leap, in foreign exchanges and in global financial markets, next week.

 

Over in Asia, the picture continues subdued, as is normal for this time of the year. In India, generous rains have kick-started the growing season with farmers being buyers of gold from, at the latest, September onwards.

 

Chinese demand is robust with premiums over London’s gold price rising with annual demand projected to be higher than the record breaking 2013. There is no reason why this should not happen. Some felt that the Chinese would turn to their equity markets instead of to gold. The average Chinese investor is unlikely to turn away from his traditional love of gold. We note that China experienced hyperinflation in the past and the old generation remembers it well. With the government encouraging investment in gold and the Chinese people responding obediently to the government, gold is unlikely to be abandoned as a bedrock investment. This is why Asian demand will continue to underpin demand for gold.

 

The U.S. investor in gold has come to life. There were purchases of 7.753 tonnes of gold into the SPDR but none into the Gold Trust on Thursday. The holdings of the SPDR gold ETF are at 713.228 tonnes and at 167.79 tonnes in the Gold Trust. This is the first time this year we have seen such a large purchase! Will there be follow through?
