We can say with confidence that much of the fall in the gold price has been driven by bullion banks looking to square their books. We can also surmise that by driving the gold price below the 55-day and 200-day moving averages, technical analysts have turned uniformly bearish, triggering further selling. It therefore follows that when the bullion banks have long positions, they will be prepared for the market to rise as the inflation outcome develops. Full Story

In a COMEX type market prices are much more volatile and easily moved by algorithm trading, just because no physical metal is involved. Inevitably physical gold will move to the market paying the most. Full Story

This does not affect the price but does remove available gold stocks from the market. Full Story

This is the largest addition of gold to the Russian monetary reserves since 1998 and could be seen as a parting ‘gift’ by Prime Minister Putin to his rival ex-President Obama. The Russian central bank gold purchase is the biggest monthly gold purchase of this millennium.
