    It seems that everybody’s hanging on the Fed’s every word. Yesterday the S&P 500 index closed at its record high as Bernanke backed sustained monetary stimulus.

Could these events trigger a further rally? Will the S&P 500 index decisively climb above the May 21 top? And what implications could it have for gold?

  • Have Mining Stocks Stopped Responding to Gold's Price Action?

    July 10, 2013, 10:08 AM

    One of the most important pieces of data last week was Friday's U.S. non-farm payrolls report. The underlying strength in the U.S. economic data was a very bearish factor for gold which resulted in a decline to $1,208 per ounce on Friday. Despite economic data and a bearish outlook, Monday’s and Tuesday’s sessions were quite good for gold bulls and the yellow metal climbed up to over $1,260 per ounce.

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.
