May Market Overview

Gold Market Overview

In this edition of the Market Overview, we will discuss the gold lending and swap market – a misunderstood and overlooked part of the gold market. Are you confused by the talk of gold backwardation, the gold lease rates (GLR) or the gold forward offered rates (GOFO)? This edition of the Market Overview will show you how these gold market-related interest rates and the price of gold interfere with each other. We will also discuss how the gold leasing is conducted, how it is linked to the gold prices, and why gold is leased at all. Last but not least, we will analyze whether the leasing of gold by central banks affects the price of gold, what negative gold forward rates mean, and how to interpret the occurrence of backwardation in gold.
