    In the second half of August, the Shanghai Composite declined from (almost) 4,000 below the next psychologically important barrier of 3,000, hitting fresh 2015 lows.

Thanks to these circumstances, light crude hit a fresh multi-year low of $37.75 and the XOI approached the barrier of 1,000, but is the worst behind oil bulls?

Aug Market Overview

Gold Market Overview

In the last edition of the Market Overview we analyzed the nature of gold and defined it as a global monetary asset rather than a commodity. Because of its nature, neither mining production nor industrial demand nor consumer demand nor central banks’ demand drives the gold price. In reality the casual relationship takes place in the opposite direction: the gold price affects these categories of demand. We concluded that the investment demand drives the gold prices, because only professional investors (not consumers) provoke a stable, sustainable rise (or decline) in the gold price. This time we will focus on the investment demand and its determinants.
