    Note: London is a de facto paper market and the fix is used as conduit as part of the effort to suppress the gold price. This why all of the info reported by the LBMA is more opaque now. The fix data used to be reported an hour after the event. Now it’s delayed 7-8 hours. Why?

  • From equitymrkt:

    The short-term gold price is under pressure, but the long-term bullish outlook remains unchanged; there are currently two catalysts leading to the sell-off of gold.Rising bond yields and economic troubles. This led to liquidation and cash fleeing#gold #xauusd
