Price Drivers

Gold & Silver –

The offering by the leading Swiss banks of allocated accounts for their clients tells us about the osmotic ‘official’ move towards gold in the monetary system, we believe. We do not accept that they offered their clients such accounts to reduce their balance sheets. This is a consequence, not a reason. We see the reason in reaction to the invasive nature of the U.S. IRS in the light of future changes to FATCA the new U.S. Tax system coming in, in 2014. We see them wanting to be able to show what U.S. clients are holding in gold, even though at the moment such holdings do not have to be reported. Should the U.S. in the future want to see this, then U.S. owned gold won’t be hidden in the Swiss bank balance sheet out of sight of the U.S. And this way any issues will be between the owners of the gold and the U.S. only! Think on! Swiss banks are in the same place as overseas gold dealers! [Subscribe to our newsletters at and].

Now add to this the slow but palpable moves of central bankers towards gold through repatriation, buying or just not selling and you have an undercurrent in the gold market that promises a good future for the gold and silver prices that will happen irrespective of the state of the developed world economies.

With the marriage season starting in India and 10 million weddings expected to take place this [and most years] this is the time that the family matriarchs buy gold and silver for their daughters to ensure that the newly married couple start off with family security. It is such a different approach to gold from that of the West. The developed world treats gold jewelry as simply decoration of the ladies, so it need not be pure gold. In India, jewelry is usually nearly pure gold, because it is money and financial security. China has the same underlying attitude towards gold. It is in these differences that the future gold price lies.

Silver –U.S. silver buyers are quiet now, so silver is moving in tandem with gold again.
