Shanghai went $6 higher than New York and London followed this price at the opening before pulling back to New York’s close at the LBMA price setting. We are watching to see if this is the start of pricing in Shanghai separating itself from New York. London’s pricing seems to respect Shanghai and could be asking the same question.
We are seeing China stabilizing as the throes of developing an internal economy pull this way and that. The government appears to have an iron grip on the economy which also appears to be following the course it wants. The benefit for gold is that is middle classes continue to grow steadily. They continue to have affection for gold and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

Yesterday, another Fed spokesmen spoke on the market obsession of when a rate hike is to occur. She encouraged prudence and caution on when a rate hike is to occur. This has been read that a hike in September is not going to happen even though it is to be discussed. The markets now react to any person involved in the FOMC committee. This does not make forward guidance a bit ridiculous as it is market reaction that is at fault. To us this is a reflection of the myopic nature of markets which do not seem to look at the facts but at the emotion involved with feeling in the Fed member’s statements.
The wise understand as much as is involved as possible and then take their positions. Otherwise it would be simply reacting to gossip. Traders make money and lose money this way, but investors make money understanding the fundamentals and the structure of markets. Subscribe: www.GoldForecaster.com
Gold ETFs – There were no sales or purchases from or into the SPDR or Gold Trust yesterday, leaving their respective holdings at 939.940 tonnes and 225.39 tonnes.
Since January 4th this year, the holdings of these two gold ETFs have risen by 365.028 tonnes.
Silver – Like gold, the silver price appears unwilling to fall through support at $19 for any length of time. Silver will follow gold and neither its Technical picture nor its fundamentals, a pattern set some years ago. It is being treated as a monetary metal and has been throughout those years.
