Price Drivers

Last week the IMF confirmed that the Chinese economy is now the largest in the world. What does this mean for gold and silver investors? With the love for gold the Chinese and other Asian nations have, it means that demand for gold from there will persist and grow all the way. Other Asian demand will follow it alongside the growth in demand from India. We are two weeks from the start of the ‘gold season’.


More importantly for global demand for gold and silver it means that the monetary system of the last 60+ years will have to change as China exerts a different force over the global monetary system, making the peaceful currency system we have seen over all these year [Dollar hegemony] weaken and change into a multi-currency system in a more uncertain and unstable world. This brings gold and silver back to an important role in the extreme times we face. We have seen the start of this in the last two weeks. - Subscribe  [See our new gold buying, transferring and storing operation: ]


We have seen sales of 31 tonnes of gold from Paulson’s ETF by the end of June and purchases of 9.15 tonnes by Druckenmiller. These are large funds and not prone to speculation in physical gold sales and purchases. However, there could be advantages to selling COMEX positions alongside such sales, profiting from subsequent price falls, but this would conflict with the big buyers coming into the market. We are inclined to believe that neither of these two funds played speculative games in the last month but that the large bear raids came from other sources.


There were no sales or purchases in either the SPDR gold ETF or the Gold Trust on Friday leaving the holdings of the SPDR gold ETF at 671.867 tonnes and 161.02 tonnes in the Gold Trust.
