27 November 2021Friday saw a sharp recovery in the gold price in Asian and European markets on news of the discovery of the new Omicron coronavirus mutation in southern Africa. However the price was brought back down sharply again in North American markets despite a sell-off in equities and bitcoin.
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.
22 November 2021After holding up around the $1,860 and $25 levels respectively, gold and silver both fell quite sharply on Friday following an opoinionated speech by Fed board member Christopher Waller. Whether his proposed solution to the current high inflation rate becomes Fed policy or not will likely define the precious metals price path in the short term.
21 November 2021The latest gold export figures for October released by the Swiss customs authorities, show that China has resumed its position as the No.1 importer of Swiss gold refinery output, followed by India and Hong Kong.

Pretium's Brucejack mine is one of the world's most productive and highest grade gold mines.

We suspect these improved prices may be here to stay and represent something of a reset in the investment attitudes towards gold and silver in particular.
08 November 2021Canadain consultancy, Murenbeeld & Co,, whose opinions I rate highly, has come up with a new revised forecast for the gold price over the next few quarters.

The price fell back on confirmation that the start of the Fed's tapering programme was indeed imminent, but rose again sharply when Fed chair Jerome Powell intimated that prosperctive interest rate rises might be further into the future than markets had been anticipating.
