More importantly and secondly, with the Indian budget coming up next week, the hope that government will lower the 10% of duties they imposed on gold imports will be lowered. This would reduce, if not eliminate, smuggling [possibly responsible for an extra 250+ tonnes extra of imported gold]. Then ‘official’ if not real, import figures would change. But right now we expect a shunt-effect as demand is held back to be released after the budget, whether or not duties are lowered. Full Story

Citi bank says that a global recession could be very near. US GDP numbers are the key today. Next week will be also all about taking positions for the second quarter. Every financial investment in every nation has the risk of reversing the current direction in March. If they are falling, they will rise and vice-versa. Central banks have been very active manipulators in financial markets this year. Their role as a guide to the markets will only increase in March. Central action as well as central bank inactions should be bullish for gold. Full Story

Gold is currently working on a ‘full house’, with three of a kind (gold out performs stock markets, gold rises vs. commodities and gold rises vs. global currencies). We can call the pair needed to complete the full house economic contraction (to varying degrees globally) and confidence declines. Full Story

Let’s assume that this was due to physical selling by U.S. bullion banks. The tonnage bought this week must have put a serious dent in the gold holdings that can be used for trading. Should the buying continue at anywhere near these levels, we would question the wisdom of using such amounts of gold simply to hold the price down. The evidence in the physical markets is that Asian demand is so large that such a policy is doomed to fail. Full Story

The gold price made a surge at the LBMA price setting and appears to have started a strong move upwards. If this continues we could see the strong move go much higher. The Technical picture has moved to the critical point where one expected a strong move, either way! Because the surge was at the LBMA price setting, where we expect the largest volumes of the day to be traded, it does appear that a strong move higher is underway. Full Story

Short term investment sentiment for gold in India and across Asia is bullish. Retail gold demand in India will rise as the week progresses and into March. In India there is massive speculation that prices in India will rise to Rs.35000/ten grams (current price is around Rs.29500/ten grams) in the next three months. However the direction of gold prices after the release of US February nonfarm payrolls will be interesting. Till the release of the release of US February nonfarm payrolls on 4th March, gold prices could trade in a wider $1180 and $1315 range. Full Story

Back in 2103 the Fed need to run QE3 and keep the stock market rising. However, they didn’t want to make the same mistake they made in 2008 and spike the commodity markets causing another recession. Now the conditions are reversed. The Fed needs inflation. So I don’t see the incentive for the cartel to continue attacking gold. Full Story

“The backdrop of robust global demand and increasing financial and economic uncertainty is supportive of gold,” says Mark O’Byrne, the research director at GoldCore. “Janet Yellen’s comments … regarding not cutting interest rates anytime soon were quite dovish and led to gold’s gains. The fact that she reiterated the Fed expects to raise rates at a gradual pace and yet gold continued to rise … is quite bullish.” Full Story

We still don’t believe that the gold price is reflecting these purchases. If these had happened over a week we would have opined that they were extremely good weeks of gold purchases. So we ask, “Is this an institution like Paulson’s funds buying back holding sold in the last quarter or another aggressive U.S. fund. Or it could be a Chinese institution stocking up its holdings held outside China?” Full Story

Gold’s rally is holding steady as investors are losing faith in central banks’ ability to deal with economic challenges, reports Bloomberg. “If they’re not going to put up U.S. rates as fast as the market had been anticipating, then that’s going to send the U.S. dollar lower, “ David Lennox from Fat Prophets in Sydney said. “That will be beneficial to the gold price.” Inflows into bullion-backed ETPs this year have also topped outflows in all of 2015, as seen in the chart below.

So will there be two separate and very different gold prices across the world in the future? We discussed, in our newsletters, the developments both in and outside China in terms of the structure of the global gold markets being undertaken by the Chinese institutions. We see these as developing effective arbitrage operations, under their control. That means that the absorption of London’s liquidity in the gold market will accelerate. Full Story
