Market Report: Strong dollar undermines precious metals
Precious metals have had to endure a week of gathering dollar strength, which is at least partly the result of problems specific to the euro, yen and sterling. The result is gold has fallen a further $30 over the week, and silver by about $0.70c. The first chart is of gold and open interest on Comex. Over the last two weeks the gold price has been falling while open interest has been rising: in other words paper gold has been flooding the market. This is illustrated in the second chart, of Mana

  Dimitri Speck: Platinum's price is suppressed like gold's and silver's
Analysis by market analyst and GATA consultant Dimitri Speck shows that the platinum market is manipulated just as the gold and silver markets are, largely through futures contract sales keyed to the morning and afternoon platinum price fixings. Speck writes: "There have long been hints that systematic manipulation of gold and silver prices via the futures markets is taking place -- also during the fixing. Due to the many similarities, it seems likely that the futures market also plays a decisi

This morning I recorded an interview with Al Korelin for his weekend show which should be up Saturday US time. Al talked about how bad the sentiment was in the gold market right now, the worst he has ever seen, and I'd have to agree. Having said that, I talked about the recent return of demand for gold kilobars from Asia. Premiums have come up off the floor and are moving up nicely.

A Warning to Those Grown Bored with Gold 
I’m starting to warm once again to gold. Like many of you, I never gave up on it, I had just grown too bored to care. With the bear market in bullion about to enter its fourth year, who could be blamed for losing interest?  Gold has looked so punk for so long that every time it rallies sharply, I get that nagging feeling, as you probably do, that we’re about to get sandbagged for the umpteenth time.  So why the change of heart?

Market Report: Short-sellers driving prices
Gold and silver had a bad week, with gold falling $25 to a low of $1262 by the Comex close yesterday, and silver by $0.50. This morning UK-time prices opened a little better on overnight physical demand, no doubt stimulated by those lower prices. The background to this poor performance was dollar strength relative to weak currencies, with the yen, euro and pound all declining sharply. It feels like the market is drained of all positive sentiment, which is reflected in the very low level of open
