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. [Please note that the 0.5% difference in price can be accounted for by the higher quality of Shanghai’s gold on which their gold price is based over London’s ‘good delivery’ standard of 0.995.]


Today we see no premium in Shanghai over New York, indeed it looks more like London and New York are now rising faster than Shanghai as you can see above.

Price Drivers

What has changed in the last day? The dollar has gone weaker which is what Treasury has wanted all along. Why yesterday? The election race has changed with the institution of more investigations into Hilary Clinton’s e-mails, which brought the polls to a point where the Trump camp has caught up with the Clinton camp. This has set global financial markets on edge.  A Trump win signifies a Republican government and an end to political gridlock. It also heralds change in the U.S. and, we see a boost to de-globalization attitudes with greater divisions between east and west as a more aggressive U.S. tries to halt or temper the growing global Chinese influence. All this will be set against slowing global growth and excessive debt levels. It is clear that markets are guarding against a Trump Presidency and taking positions accordingly!
