Price Drivers

The media continues to feast on Greece’s drama but the markets remain unmoved until the way forward is clear, one way or the other. What is of more importance is the sight of so many currencies struggling against a stronger dollar now. In Indonesia the use of the dollar for internal trade has been halted as the local currency sinks. Puerto Rico’s debt problem, the Ukraine and many others are stumbling, as is a waning global economy. While trade competitiveness improves for these countries, most are not reaping the benefits of rising exports. We still see pressure within the U.S. Treasury to hold the dollar back, but foreign exchange pressures are mounting on the dollar. What history shows is that market intervention fails against a fundamentally weakening or strengthening currency. With the dollar the ‘tree trunk’ of the currency system it is no surprise that the branches are withering first. The most important exchange rate in the monetary world is the $: €. The E.C.B. wants the euro weaker, the U.S. doesn’t, so where next? With the Jobs report on the way, will it be sufficiently positive to send the dollar stronger?


The gold and silver prices continue to drift down on low volumes, belying the true picture of demand and supply. With western markets dominating the gold and silver prices, ignoring the fundamentals of both metals it is pertinent to ask why should their prices rise in the future? We would answer; that there is no reason, unless this structure changes. After all, for the last 45 years the developed world has disliked gold as money insisting that it has been replaced by paper currencies, particularly the dollar. To date this view has worked, irrespective of the fact that when this change started gold was at $42 and ounce and is now, after a nearly 50% fall is at $1,160 nearly 28 times higher. The question is, will this dollar dominance continue in the future? The rise of China and its separate monetary system, one that is being structured to weather currency storms and clearly not dependent on the dollar in the near future, is giving us the answer.
