Price Drivers

It is important to get a balanced perspective on the global financial market actions in the last few days because we tend to be emotional when such volatility happens. First, the Shanghai Stock Exchange has been treated as a casino where investments are expected to yield short-term trading gains [with government backing]. When China moved to float the Yuan the ripple set off global reactions. Government stepped in to try to show its support even allowing Pension funds to invest in the market [they have yet to do so].In backing off support for the equity market, China removed support for short-term traders. Please note the Shanghai exchange does not impact the Chinese economy but it is a side market that it not taken as seriously as it is in the developed world. Far more important is the capital liberalizing process at Municipal level where capital injections do reach the overall economy.   The process of removing Capital Controls in China is set to see a cheaper Yuan, but in the process enhance the Yuan’s relevance in the global monetary system. What is most disturbing is that the Chinese equity market action should have set off sell-offs in the developed world! This tells us that the influence of short-term trading [prompted by demands for performance] is excessive in the developed world. Market liquidity is insufficient to prevent high frequency trading from creating the huge volatility that we have seen this week.

 

As for gold being part of this scene, it hasn’t been. It has behaved remarkably steadily in line with chart patterns. Gold is for long-term investing mainly, as we have seen this week.

 

Of more importance to the gold price is the approaching ‘gold season’ beginning next month.
