LAWRIE WILLIAMS: Ramifications for gold and silver of the latest Russian attack.

Lawrence Williams

25 February 2022Contrary to our initial beliefs, it appears that Russia has gone ahead with a full-scale military assault on Ukraine with somewhat mixed results so far. Gold, silver, equities and bitcoin have been hugely volatile in their response so far but we firmly believe that the Russian move, coupled with perhaps enhanced inflation fears, remains positive for precious metals and distinctly negative for equities and bitcoin once the markets settle down.

LAWRIE WILLIAMS: No war yet. Gold price supported by fear element

Lawrence Williams

21 February 2022With the weekend passing without the presumed inevitable Russian onslaught on Ukraine, gold and silver have been marked down a little in the absence of U.S. markets for Presidents Day. However the global geopolitical situation remains tense and precious metals will likely continue to benefit accordingly.

LAWRIE WILLIAMS: Russia/Ukraine tensions ease and precious metals dip.

Lawrence Williams

15 February 2022Tensions have eased a little over Western accusations that Russia was about to invade Ukraine as the former reports that some of its troops and military equipment amassed on Ukraine's border are returning to base. The possible relaxation of tensions has seen a sharp dip in precious metals prices, but we question whether there was ever a Russian intention to invade at all.

LAWRIE WILLIAMS: Bitcoin and global equities weaken.  What now for gold and silver?

Lawrence Williams

Lawrence Williams

08 January 2022Latest figures out of China's Shanghai Gold Exchange suggest that 2021 gold demand in that nation was the highest for three years. Taken together with strong demand in India too, the figiures are a definite positive for a continuing rise in global gold consumpgtion.

LAWRIE WILLIAMS: Russian gold reserves ups and downs

Lawrence Williams

21 December 2021The Russian 100,000 ounce addition to its gold reserves in October was reversed in November with a similarly sized withdrawal. Meanwhile it could be surreptitiously building its gold reserves through additions into it National Wealth Fund.

LAWRIE WILLIAMS: Bitcoin volatility will drive investors back to gold

Lawrence Williams

14 December 2021The recent votolatility in Bitcoin, which has even seen BTC - the most traded cryptocurrency - fall by around 30% at one time and smaller cryptos like Dogecoin over 70% below its peak, demonstrate that cryptocuurencies are not reliable wealth preservers and waverers will likely return to gold as the ultimate safe haven as it has been from time immemorial

LAWRIE WILLIAMS: China gold demand heading for plus 1,700 tonnes in FY2021

Lawrence Williams

08 December 2021The latest gold withdrawal figures from China's Shanghai Gold Exchange, point to an annual gold demand total exceeding 1,700 tonnes this year, the highest level since 2018.

LAWRIE WILLIAMS: Russia adds another 3 tonnes of gold to its reserves

Lawrence Williams

23 November 2021Latest figures from the Russian central bank show another increase in its gold reserves in October of 3.1 tonnes , a similar amount to that recorded also in July and September. However this amount is too small to yet know whether this represents a reversal in the bank's recent gold buying policy.
