Gold Slips As UK Gold Demand “Rockets” – Investors “Seek Stability”


 -- Published: Tuesday, 21 June 2016 | Print  | Disqus 

By: Mark O'Byrne

Gold fell again today despite very robust physical demand in western markets and especially the UK. Gold fell to a ten-day low as the recent global share rally showed signs of exhaustion.

BREXIT

Expectations that Britain could vote to leave the European Union in Thursday’s referendum have receded somewhat but remain and this is leading to very significant UK gold demand.

Over the last 5 days, we have had record demand from both Irish and UK retail and high net worth clients acquiring bullion in advance of the important poll. Other bullion dealers in the UK and indeed mints are reporting similar surging demand.

The Royal Mint has seen demand for gold “rocket” as investors seek sanctuary in safe haven gold due to increased volatility in stock and fx markets and concerns about the outlook for the UK economy and sterling (see News).

Two opinion polls yesterday showed the “Remain” camp had recovered some ground in the referendum debate though a third poll found those wanting to leave were ahead by a whisker.

As ever, speculative money in the futures market appears to be dictating gold prices in the short term. We expect the very robust physical demand will lead to a sharp bounce in gold prices in the medium term. We are hearing of increasing illiquidity in the inter-bank gold market and will look at this in more detail tomorrow.
