Within the hour of the gold price setting on London the price was marked down $6. We find it difficult to accept that the gold price setting was out of line with the market, rather the market was bracing itself for more selling in the U.S. Ahead of the opening of New York the gold price was trading at $1,232.40 and in the euro at €1,124.66. At the same time, the silver price was trading at $16.36. Full Story

There can be a clash between long term support and short term bearish momentum. Silver, crude oil and copper are near long term supports. Gold if it falls after NFP can test long term support as well. France election result (if there is a surprise) will have a bigger impact for gold and currency markets than the US nonfarm payroll numbers. Full Story

The Fed remains positive on U.S. growth despite the slowdown in the first quarter. The indications are that the joblessness rate is now at maximum employment and the inflation rate getting close to the targeted 2%. This allows the Fed to continue discussions on shrinking the Fed’s Balance Sheet and leaving the door open for a June rate hike. The market saw this as negative for gold which has fallen heavily in the last day. Full Story

As we pointed out in the piece on Swiss gold exports demand from Asia remains very strong indeed. The refineries in Switzerland have been working 24 hours a day and 6 days a week to convert gold into metric measurement bars. This has gone on for many years now and is set to continue for the foreseeable future. It is quite remarkable that the developed gold world is quiet on the subject because it is only a matter of time before the western gold markets becomes secondary markets to Shanghai. Full Story

Precious metals continue to weaken, especially silver which has declined eleven consecutive days and is now down over 10.6%. The sell off is again almost solely a result of futures market participants pushing or manipulating prices lower – depending on your view – despite no bearish silver or wider market developments or news that could be construed as bearish for silver.

The Federal Reserve statement today will also spell the US dollar policy. Incoming US economic data releases so far have been mixed. Long term prospects of the US economy are rosy. Infosys said it plans to hire 10,000 U.S. workers in the next two years and open four technology centers in the United States, starting with a center this August in Indiana. Curbs on H1B visas will result in hiring of more Americans and less outsourcing. Measures taken by Trump and his team are pro growth but unpopular. Full Story

Many may think the gold price reflects demand and supply of physical gold. It doesn’t. It primarily reflects marginal supply and demand, speculative activity and the assumptions of the main dealers as to where the market is going. The physical demand and supply of gold is mainly directly contracted between physical buyers and sellers, with the contract price, primarily the London pm price setting, but for a growing number of market professionals the Shanghai gold Fix is being used by both parties to the contract. In other words the trading in physical gold, in the case of around 95%+ of such buyers and sellers, does not influence the gold price. Full Story

Lack of trading volumes along with a technical breakdown has resulted in the crash of gold and silver. The slide can continue today also if physical demand does not return in Asia. Gold and silver will restart their short term bullish trend only if the Federal Reserve indicates a pause in interest rate hikes for the June meeting and/or US jobs numbers come in filthy bad. Investment demand for gold and silver will depend on the price outlook. Full Story
