Please note that the Shanghai Fixes are for 1 gm of gold. From the Middle Eat eastward metric measurements are used against 0.9999 quality gold.

 

New York’s close and London’s opening was barely different. But Shanghai spent the day well above their prices by $5 and more. But as London’s morning progresses we saw the gold price jump over $1,270. This implies that the ‘premium’ in Shanghai is not a premium but a more accurate pricing of gold, as London quickly followed, then led Shanghai higher at the price setting of the LBMA this morning.

 

It is becoming evident that while gold jewelry demand is down by around a third in China this year so far, institutional/investment demand is gaining ground as evidenced by the increase in sales of 1 Kg bars over the smaller 50 and 100 gm bars. We repeat gold is an integral part of the Chinese financial system now.

 

These metric denominations are becoming the norm as far west as Switzerland. This makes them a more liquid form of gold in international markets.

 

LBMA price setting:  The LBMA gold price setting was at $1,269.75 against yesterday’s $1,261.65. The gold price in the euro was set higher at €1,154.63 against yesterday’s €1,146.95.

Ahead of the opening of New York the gold price was trading at $1,271.30 and in the euro at €1,159.05.  At the same time, the silver price was trading at $17.73.

 

Silver Today –The silver price rose to $17.62 at New York’s close yesterday from $17.44, Monday. 

 

Gold (very short-term) The gold price should show a positive bias, in New York today.      

                                                                                              

Silver (very short-term) The silver price should show a positive bias, in New York today.

 

Price Drivers

The Technical picture favors a run higher at the moment, but how far? The strong move we expected is to the upside.  Subscribe - GoldForecaster.com Contact us at admin@stockbridgemgmt.com to buy physical gold in a way that we feel, removes the threat of it being confiscated. We’re the only storage company that offers that!

 

With U.S. data not nearly as robust as was hoped, there are now expectations of, at least, a mild recession in the U.S. next year. The U.S cannot afford even a mild one. Certainly the Fed cannot afford a rate hike just ahead of one. If one arrived after a rate hike, the blame may be placed on that for the recession, instead of a general decline in economic activity in the U.S.

 

If the U.S. is headed to a recession, then certainly the rest of the developed world is and one that will be far worse than seen in the U.S. 

 

Globally debt levels are extraordinarily high. A recession will lead to these levels being raised even more. This brings forward either heavy defaults or more Q.E. which will cause inflation and not promote growth.

 

2017 looks to take the developed world and the Chinese economy further into uncharted waters. We certainly expect a turbulent year in 2017!

 

Gold ETFs – There was no change in the holdings of either the SPDR F or the Gold Trust, leaving their respective holdings at 967.208 tonnes and 227.56 tonnes.  Hence, the rise in the gold price was not driven by physical demand.

 

Since January 4th this year, the holdings of these two gold ETFs have risen by 393.789 tonnes.

 

Silver – Silver prices are moving higher with gold but cautiously and should accelerate past gold soon.

 

Regards,

 

Julian D.W. Phillips
