Price Drivers

Gold & Silver –

The news of the day is that ‘officially’ the Eurozone is in recession. The euro is relatively stable at €1: $1.2329 while gold and silver continue in their narrow trading pattern still.

 

The “gold season” starts any day, from now on. It sometimes does not get cracking until the end of August early September. From now on the developed world starts to return from their summer holidays, ready to start up the process that leads to the year end festivities. The first task is for jewelers to buy gold for manufacturing and to sell to wholesalers ready to present to customers ahead of festivities.

 

In India after a worrying start to the monsoon, rainfall came to take its levels of rain back to ‘normal’ levels. The harvesting is underway after which gold buying with the profits begins.

In China, there is no particular season because the Chinese investor buys gold as he has the cash available to do so.

 

This time of the year is very significant for the gold world and by extension the silver world. It is the time of the year when we see demand grow on most fronts and is the time of the year when gold and silver are likely to reach their highest level in the year.

What is more pertinent to the gold and silver price is that the demand that springs up from now on is not driven by U.S. politics, Eurozone crises or newsworthy currency items. It is driven by sheer physical demand for gold and gold jewelry the world over. It is the time of year when it is better to be long of gold and silver than to be short of them.
