Price Drivers

This week’s performance by gold and silver will be the result of two factors:

1)      The dollar.

2)     Gold ETF sales or purchases.

 

We feel that the dollar has run too far, for too long on the back of hopes under the Trump administration. It is certainly against the interest of the U.S. to have a strong dollar at this point in the U.S.

 

With the Yuan continuing to fall we may well see our forecast of 7.00 against the dollar reached by the end of this year. In 2017 we expect more falls in the Chinese currency. Let’s be clear on this, if the dollar continues to strengthen much more, the likelihood of import controls via stringent tariffs increases.

 

Trumps rhetoric, via Tweets against China, are not stopping, making the divisions between the U.S. and China ever greater.  While China is pragmatic it also understands the many ways it can retaliate to its advantage.

 

As such we do expect to see gold demand increase from China and for a strong dollar to be capped in 2017. In a divided world, under tension, gold sees greater demand as history has shown throughout the ages.

 

2017 will see such tension and happenings that are the unforeseen, unforeseen. It will not be a quiet year. With gold prices at current levels we see gold not being far from its bottom. This next fortnight will confirm this, we think.

 

Gold ETFs – Friday, there were sales of 5.333 tonnes from the SPDR gold ETF and sales 0f 0.75 of a tonne from the Gold Trust, leaving their respective holdings at 836.991 tonnes and 195.60 tonnes. These sales were again large, but have had no impact on the gold price. It would appear that when sales are ONLY as large as this, the buoyancy of the market is stronger than such sales.

 

The influence of the dollar exchange rate seems greater than physical sales at the moment!

 

Since January 4th this year, 232.121 tonnes of gold has been added to the SPDR gold ETF and to the Gold Trust.
