Price Drivers

We wish our readers enjoy their holiday today, ready for a stronger gold market on their return. In our next issue of the Gold Forecaster we will discuss just what strategy will tremendously increase your returns in a time when gold prices are rising and just how to maximize returns, when it is not.

While New York is on holiday the jump in gold prices seen last Friday persists. The disappointing jobs report shook markets on Friday seemingly postponing a rate increase until the end of the year. Meanwhile the dollar continues to weaken against the major currencies, with the exception of the Japanese Yen.


There were no significant moves in the U.S. physical market showing that exchange rate moves continue to move gold and silver prices.


Meanwhile demand in India is on the rise as the gold and festival seasons begin. We keep seeing statistics for Indian demand related mainly to ‘official’ imports. We find these almost impossible to accept, because the Indian gold market is no longer dominated by ‘official’ imports.


Smuggling, three years ago, was thought to be at around 250 tonnes per annum on top of ‘official’ imports. Since then professional smugglers have improved efficiencies and market penetration. In addition the government has increased their profit margins by 1% by imposing a further Tax of that amount. During the gold manufacturer’s strikes, their front doors were closed and their back doors were open and manufacturing continued no doubt with the assistance of smuggled gold imports.


So when we see ‘official figures marked down and reports of dropping demand coming through we take these with a pinch of salt.


After a very good Monsoon, gold buyers are putting profits back into their pockets. With no tax payable on agricultural profits, much of those find their way into property and into gold and an ‘alternative’ financial system. It’s the Indian way of life resulting from many, many years of political corruption and bureaucratic abuse on the gold trade there.


So we would suggest that you add a minimum of 250 tonnes to the ‘official gold figures annually to see what the real annual Indian demand really is.



Gold ETFs – In New York Friday there were no sales from of purchases into the SPDR gold ETF but a small sale from the Gold Trust of 0.05 of a tonne leaving their respective holdings at 937.89 tonnes and 225.39 tonnes.


Since January 4th this year, the holdings of these two gold ETFs have risen by 364.165 tonnes.


Silver – The silver price jumped on the relatively small move in the gold price on Friday and this has carried through to London on Monday. A jump, of just under 3% in silver prices was seen while gold rose 1% on Friday.
