30 January 2022The World Gold Council's latest Gold Demand Trends report, covering Q4 and full year 2021 figures for global gold supply and demand, has just been released. This suggests that global gold demand has now fully recovered from the Covid-affected 2020 figures. Coupled with the recent FOMC meeting analysis, we surmise that the gold price is due for recovery from its recent sharp downturn and remains the primary wealth protector.
27 January 2022The immediate outcome from this week's FOMC meeting and the subsequent Jerome Powell press conference, proved to be distinctly negative for precious metals prices - at least in the short term. But we think there's a good chance that they will rapidly recover from these negative interpretations and rise back to previous levels, and above.
22 January 2022The latest Russian central bank announcement on its freign exchange reserves shows that the gold element increased by 3.1 tonnes in December - an identical amount to that leken out of reserves the previous month. There ahve been several such identical chnges up and down in the past year, but overall the neteffect on the nation;s gold reserve total has been zero.
21 January 2022Both general equities and bitcoin have seen sharp falls in recent days, enhancing the value of investment in safe haven assets like gold and silver, particularly in the current negative real interest rate environment
20 January 2022We think thst the latest surge in precious metals prices represents the shape of things to come. Negative real rates shoud keep gold, in particular, in demand as a wealth protector despite Fed moves on interest rates, and silver may even outperform our previous expectations.
19 January 2022China and India are comfortably the two biggest global gold consumers and 2021 has reportedly seen both substantially raise gold demand year on year,with demand growth in these and other Asian nations almost certainly more than counterbalancing assumed outflows from the big gold ETF sectror.
18 January 2022Gold and silver prices seem to have made something of a recovery after earlier falls due to speculation that the U.S. Fed might start to raise interest rates earlier than had been previously suggested due to the ongoing high rate of U.S. inflation.
14 January 2022A falling dollar index has probably been the prime mover in a recovery in gold and silver prices to above $1,820 and $23 respectively, But we have seen this before - Will the price recovery be sustainable this time around?
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.
06 January 2022The release of the FOMC minutes from the December meeting had a decidedly negative impact on precious metals prices in late U.S. trade on Wednesday and in Europe this morning. However there are other forces at play which might lead to the Fed's policy being less hawkish than predicted.
