Gold Demand in Q2 2017
Last week, the World Gold Council published a new edition of its quarterly report on gold demand. What does Gold Demand Trends Q2 2017 say about the demand for gold in the second quarter of 2017? Gold demand in the second quarter of 2017 was 953.4 tons, a decline from 1,034.5 in Q1. It implies a 10-percent decline year-on-year. As in the previous quarter, the negative headline was mainly caused by weaker inflows into gold ETFs. Although global holdings increased by 56 tons, it was less than one-

The Daily Market Report: Gold Keeps the Pressure on the Upside
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-03-17 Gold has firmed intraday to keep pressure on the high end of the recent range. A weak dollar continues to offer a solid underpinning to the yellow metal. The World Gold Council reported that investment demand, in the form of bars and coins, rebounded 13% in Q2 from low levels for the same period last year. Demand for the first half of the year was up 11%. That’s encouraging, given that “ETF inflows slowed dramatically from last year’s record pace.” While the demand

Estimated Chinese Gold Reserves Surpass 20,000t
My best estimate as of June 2017 with respect to total above ground gold reserves within the Chinese domestic market is 20,193 tonnes. The majority of these reserves are held by the citizenry, an estimated 16,193 tonnes; the residual 4,000 tonnes, which is a speculative yet conservative estimate, is held by the Chinese central bank the People’s Bank of China. I’m aware I’ve been absent from writing about the Chinese gold market for a long time, so for some of you it can be burdensome to pick up

'Pretty much ever since Australia sold its gold, it's been on the up'
By Paul Garvey The Australian, Sydney Saturday, July 29, 2017 In a vault deep in the basement of the Reserve Bank's Martin Place headquarters in Sydney sits a hoard of gold bars worth about $US500,000 each — all four of them. The Reserve Bank of Australia now holds almost the entirety of the nation's gold in vaults administered by the Bank of England.

Gold/Silver Shorts Extreme
The gold-futures and silver-futures short positions held by speculators have rocketed up to extremes in recent weeks.  These elite traders are aggressively betting for further weakness in gold and silver prices.  But history has proven extreme shorts are a powerful contrarian indicator.  Right as speculators wax the most bearish as evidenced by their collective bets, gold and silver decisively bottom and birth major new rallies.

  The Gold Industry is in a Deep State of Dysfunction, Delusion and Denial - Stewart Dougherty 
In 1980, the Financial Deep State realized that there existed an extraordinary opportunity for serial plunder and profiteering: the manipulation of the gold and silver markets. They immediately mobilized to exploit it. During the subsequent 37+ years (we are now well into the 38th), the Deep State manipulators have criminally looted the gold and silver markets, pocketing astronomical profits for themselves in the process, all of which have come from real victims on the other sides of their fraud

GoldMoney CEO explains the choice gold offers in currencies and payments
GoldMoney CEO Roy Sebag is interviewed at length in the June edition of the World Gold Council's Gold Investor letter. He explains how gold gives people a choice of currencies and how GoldMoney strives to make that choice a practical one for both saving and payments. As usual the gold council's letter does a spectacular job avoiding any reference to surreptitious intervention in the gold market by central banks seeking to restrain the price of a currency that competes with their own.

The story behind continuing strong bullion coin demand
2016 was a very good year for both gold and silver in aggregate global mint sales by Michael J. Kosares I have always considered sales of modern gold and silver bullion coins a bellwether on the general health of the global precious metals market. In reality, though, bullion coin sales comprise only a very small portion of the physical gold and silver markets. According to the World Gold Council, modern gold coins make up only about 13% of investment demand and a little less than 5% of overall d
