Price Drivers

Last week and this morning, saw different factors across the world knock equity markets down heavily. In China, the conciliatory statement to the IMF that the government would move more to allowing markets to move according to market forces saw those who were still allowed to sell, do so, knocking the Shanghai market down another 10% on the day.


In the U.S. where markets have risen because better yields can be found in equity markets than in the bond markets, the Dow continued to fall through support as a rate rise will come from the Fed in September or before the end of the year. Cash is the safest place to be unless the international cash aspects of gold are used. To validate that we see the dollar has sunk against the euro, the Yen and sterling while the Yuan has fallen against the dollar. This week will see heavy volatility in global financial markets. Gold was rising against the dollar ahead of New York’s opening today.


To that end there were purchases of the large amount of 5.96 tonnes into the SPDR gold ETF and o.6 of a tonne bought into the Gold Trust on Friday. This leaves the holdings of the SPDR gold ETF at 677.827 tonnes and 161.62 tonnes in the Gold Trust. 


While the fundamentals of markets drive prices they do so eventually. The greatest driver of equity markets is sentiment, which eventually will respond to fundamentals. It is in the nature of investors and the media to put a positive ‘spin’ on factors, but when smart investors are joined by the crowd the response to fundamentals becomes strong and emotional as we are seeing now. That ‘thundering herd’ can become unstoppable. But what’s different today is that global equity markets are joining the herd. - Subscribe  [See our new gold buying, transferring and storing operation: ]
