Price Drivers

The short covering that drove gold and silver prices higher last week appears to be slowing down, leaving those prices vacillating in the $1,070 area. The fall was assisted by further sales from the SPDR gold ETF which now seem to be settling down to see the gold and silver prices consolidating. This may well persist throughout the week.

 

There were sales of 4.167 tonnes of gold from the SPDR gold ETF and nothing from the Gold Trust, on Monday. The holdings of the two gold ETFs, the SPDR gold ETF and the Gold Trust remain at 634.63 tonnes in the SPDR gold ETF and at 157.07 in the Gold Trust. The 4.167 tonne sale from the SPDR gold ETF was large and certainly contributed to the fall in the gold price. If gold does consolidate, we expect to see such sales dry up. But we don’t expect any large moves in gold and silver this week until next week after the Fed has stated its case. - Subscribe www.goldForecaster.com  [To find protection from confiscation: www.Stockbridgemgmt.com ]

 

Over in India the government’s weak attempts to monetize gold and prevent smuggling are continuing to fail, as expected. Government and bureaucratic corruption is so endemic there, that the Indian investor has lost trust in the government and banking system. This leaves the gold held at temples a massive total of over 2,000 tonnes. While the temples on the surface are examining the schemes, they are not yet inclined to go along with them. We doubt that they will, willingly.

The problem of distrust in the Indian financial system translates into a gold market that hides smuggled gold and integrates it into the 2 million strong, gold markets. This will continue until duties are brought down to near to zero, when the advantages that come to smugglers are eliminated. We cannot see any schemes by government that requires the disclosure of personal gold holdings to the government, via the banks, succeeding. But the day will come when government reaches into the temples to ‘acquire’ that gold.

 

Silver The silver price remains strong over $14.00 despite the current setback and should hold up over the week. - Subscribe www.SilverForecaster.com
