    @thrishul Adani green with EPS 1.65 is priced 10 times it Book value. From onion price to Gold price , everything moves based on supply and demand itself. The surge can be created by various factors like low P/E ,high EPS or any other ratio. If something is excess then it will be low value

  • From Galactic_Trader:

    @Caseforsilver Historically, #silver spikes don’t last nearly as long as #gold price spikes. So silver miners don’t get an opportunity to profit from the high prices. Also, most silver miners are hybrids and produce just as much gold and other base metals. Gold rises & finds a higher plateau.

  • From GoldTelegraph_:

    Gold will showcase its resiliency in the coming weeks and the mainstream media will probably say nothing…Why is that? Because governments know the real threat of hyperinflation is through the gold price. Tangible decentralized metal… a real problem for them. FACTS!

In practice, the international price for gold is set by the gold markets which have the highest trading gold volumes and gold liquidity, namely the London Gold Market and the COMEX gold futures market….The international gold price is therefore set by 2 markets, the London OTC gold market and the COMEX gold futures market, both of which are paper gold markets and both of which generate trading volumes far higher than the amount of physical gold underpinning this gold trading….However, similar to the LBMA Gold Price, the LME gold reference prices also represent trading of unallocated (synthetic) gold in the London market, and not the trading of physical gold….As the world’s physical gold markets are price takers that use the international gold price as established on the London OTC and COMEX gold markets, these physical gold markets take in the gold spot price feeds as discovered on these international gold markets….The Bid price for a gold bullion bar or gold bullion coin, also known as the buy price, is a price quote for an immediate purchase of that gold bar or gold coin….The Ask price for a gold bullion bar or gold bullion coin, also known as the offer price or sell price, is a price quote for an immediate sale of that gold bar or gold coin.
