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.]


The Shanghai Gold Exchange appears to be in the process of updating its website, which needs some more work as the prices if the last two days Gold Fixings are not yet accessible.

Price Drivers

Today the dollar is pausing in its rise and gold too is consolidating with a slightly stronger bias right now. There were no sales from the gold ETFs yesterday, which has assisted the consolidation. If heavy ETF sales come in now the gold price will fall, if not we expect the gold price to continue rising.


Monte dei Paschi looks as though it is failing to convince bondholders or other investors to buy into the bank as shareholders, leaving the burden on the Italian government. We will know by the end of the week if the government will call for a bail-in or carry the burden themselves. The fear is that unless the state does buy in, an E.U. wide banking crisis would be triggered. If that happens gold will rise strongly.


We again recommend  the article to be found at: - by Clive Maund, which demonstrates we are closer to the confiscation of gold and silver than we thought. We know of only one company that is structured to prevent this and the dangers that face custodians and dealers- www.StockBridge Management - We suggest you look into this carefully as you need to act well before anything happens to damage your wealth.


Gold ETFs – Yesterday in New York, there were no sales from the SPDR gold ETF and no sales from the Gold Trust, leaving their respective holdings at 828.098 tonnes and 195.60 tonnes. 


Since January 4th this year, 223.228 tonnes of gold has been added to the SPDR gold ETF and to the Gold Trust.
