    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. That situation raised concerns that the plunge could spread to other parts of the Chinese economy, triggering fears that Chinese demand for oil will decline (China imports more than 5.65 million barrels of crude oil per day, which makes the country the world's second-largest importer of oil beyond the U.S.). 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?

Nov Market Overview

Gold Market Overview

We continue our series about drivers of the price of gold. In November we will focus on the relationship between the bond market and the yellow metal. We will analyze whether U.S. Treasury bonds could substitute for gold, and whether changes in credit spreads, and Treasury yield curve drive the price of gold. We will also examine the relationship between the financial sector’s strength and the price of gold. Analysts and investors often overlook the real links between these factors and gold, so in the November Market Overview we will show that including these variables into analysis can help fully understand the gold market.
