Please note that the Shanghai Fixes are for 1 gm of gold. From the Middle East 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.]


New York rose to the same level as Shanghai yesterday. Today, Shanghai is pausing at the same level. London opened at almost the same level as Shanghai.


Once again we see all three centers with gold prices at the same level. This is only the second time this has happened. The first was in the last month.


Silver Today –Silver closed at $17.69 yesterday after $17.57 at New York’s close Monday.


LBMA price setting:  The LBMA gold price was set today at $1,292.70 from yesterday’s $1,287.85.  The gold price in the euro was set at €1,151.01 after yesterday’s €1,144.40.

Ahead of the opening of New York the gold price was trading at $1,291.75 and in the euro at €1,150.37. At the same time, the silver price was trading at $17.67. 



Gold (very short-term) 

The gold price should consolidate with a stronger bias, in New York today.      


Silver (very short-term) 

The silver price should consolidate with a stronger bias, in New York today. 


Price Drivers

British Elections happen tomorrow. With the discussions around the size of the conservative majority it appears to us that the result will not affect the gold price.


Draghi and the E.U.

With inflation falling in the E.U. problems in the banking sector [Banco Popular has just been taken over by Santander in Spain]  Draghi, who has repeatedly said that policy makers must be convinced that inflation can rise toward 2% on its own, before removing monetary stimulus, is set to leave the current stimulus position in place through the rest of this year. This is positive for gold.


The Dollar

As you can see above, the dollar index continues to slip to a point where, if it falls to the lower 95 levels, enters a bear market.  This is the main influence on the gold price, not the short term political news.


But this does not simply mean a falling dollar, it points to disruption in the global monetary system as all the globe’s currencies will be affected. It points to the proximity of a move from a dollar hegemony system to a multi-currency system. Within these changes lies a growing relevance of gold.


The environment globally, continues to be positive for gold.


Gold ETFs – Yesterday, saw purchases of 4.61 tonnes of gold into the SPDR gold ETF, but no change in the holdings of the Gold Trust. Their holdings are now at 855.163 tonnes and, at 205 tonnes respectively.


Since January 4th 2016, 248.415 tonnes of gold have been added to the SPDR gold ETF and to the Gold Trust.  Since January 6th 2017 48.369 tonnes have been added to the SPDR gold ETF and the Gold Trust.
