Some may feel that because London is the main physical market in the developed world it supplies China exclusively. Yes, the world’s main bullion banks are based in London, but they operate in both centers. Their hold over supply is far less than most believe. For instance the Rand Refinery in Johannesburg South Africa will sell to any buyer including the Chinese directly. It does not have exclusive agreements with the world’s main banks, as it had in 1974 with the three main Swiss Banks [the ‘pool’]. Full Story

Shanghai continues to trade over 271 Yuan holding its ground. The reason for the fall in dollar prices was a strengthening of the U.S. dollar. In the last month the Yuan gold price has gone from 259 to 272 with the gold price in Yuan. We stated yesterday that, “if pricing power does reside in Shanghai as it has done in the last fortnight the Yuan price of gold will either hold or rise in the Yuan.” It has held these levels.

What we expect the year to hold is probably not even half of what it really will. But from what we know, the upcoming French and German elections, referendums, geopolitical crises, steps towards reverse globalisation and a third of global government debt yielding negative interest rates, governments are already prompting central banks and investors to turn to the one asset that has survived millennia of financial and monetary crises.

Gold dipped $5.42 to $1210.18 in Asia before it bounced back to $1216.43 in late morning New York trade, but it then fell back off in afternoon trade and ended with a loss of 0.82%. Silver rose to as high as $17.33 before it also fell back off, but it ended with a loss of just 0.52%. Full Story

Shanghai gold held the same levels as yesterday, today, of around 272 Yuan. Because of the PBoC’s selling dollars to strengthen the Yuan it does seem that the gold price in the dollar jumped over $13 on yesterday in Shanghai. If one takes today’s Yuan exchange rate and uses that to translate 272 Yuan into a dollar price you arrive at $1,236. In the last week the Yuan exchange rate has gone from 6.94 to 6.84 with the gold price in Yuan rising 8 Yuan at the same time. Full Story

Gold prices extended their run of gains to a seventh session and added another $12 to $1,215 an ounce yesterday. Gold prices have consolidated on those gains today and are now up 5.5% in dollar and sterling terms and 5% in euro terms year to date. Gold bullion has risen every day except one so far in 2017, building on the 8.1 percent gain in 2016. Investors are concerned about the huge uncertainty facing us from a ‘Hard Brexit’ and the potential for political and financial contagion in the EU as we head into the new year. Full Story

Gold traded mostly modestly higher in holiday thinned trade yesterday and rose to as high as $1218.68 in London today before it chopped back lower at times in New York, but it still ended with a gain of 1.44% from Friday’s close. Silver rose to as high as $17.20 and ended with a gain of 2.2%. Full Story

Chinese investors know the Yuan will continue to fall and are protecting themselves against this. While the People’s Bank of China has been selling dollars to lift the Yuan over the last week, we doubt they will keep doing this after President Trump as of the 20th January takes office. China is preparing for a confrontation with him. We therefore see the Yuan continuing to weaken in 2017 and Chinese demand to remain robust, despite Xi’s plea not to go to a trade war and keep markets free at Davos. Full Story

What does the recent volatility and surging price of bitcoin mean for the future of the crypto-currency and does its recent outperformance mean that it may supplant gold as a safe haven currency? Can bitcoin rival gold as a safe haven? Do bitcoin’s recent price gains herald gains for gold in 2017? Full Story

Shanghai gold prices, having corrected on Friday, are, again, moving higher in Shanghai touching 270.1 Yuan or $1,211.1 in today’s trading [using the same quality of gold]. It is always tempting to make prices simple to understand even if it means attributing any moves in the gold price to any handy piece of news locally. But that would be misleading. Chinese prices are rising because of Chinese market conditions, not because of Trump’s latest tweet. Full Story
