It's Official - China to Consider Gold!
David N. Vaughn, Gold Letter, Inc.
Gold Letter Website, January 13, 2006

"China said Thursday that it would diversify its foreign-exchange reserves away from U.S. dollars and government bonds." This news about China preparing to "diversify" their reserves will have strong implications for a rising gold price & a very favorable long term gold market.

"The latest run for bullion follows Friday's news that the Central Bank of China wants to diversify part of its record $769bn in reserves away from the US Dollar. ANALYSTS BELIEVE GOLD IS AN OBVIOUS BENEFICIARY OF THIS CHANGED APPROACH."

Gold's lustre prompts fears of price bubble
Fri Oct 3, 5:50 PM ET
By Kevin Morrison in London

The gold market is riding high and as prices come within striking distance of breaking through a seven-year high, traders are asking whether bullion will reach new heights.

Gold prices have risen 20 per cent in the past 12 months on the back of a significant decline in the US dollar over this period, the fears of both deflation and rising inflation, and the more mundane effect of gold producers buying back large volumes of forward gold sales.

Gold would have to rise another 8 per cent to exceed the February 1996 high of $417.70 a troy ounce from its current level of $382 per oz.

Gold finds new range, holding latest war rally
Tuesday December 4, 6:40 am Eastern Time

LONDON, Dec 4 (Reuters) - Gold found its feet in a new $275.00/278.00 range on Tuesday, as the market waited to see how the conflict in the Middle East would develop, traders said.
Bullion was able to hold onto most of its gains after bouncing more than a dollar higher on Monday as Israel launched a missile strike in response to two Palestinian suicide attacks on the country over the weekend.

By 1125 GMT, spot gold was trading at $276.30/276.80 an ounce, down on the last close in New York on Monday at $277.20/277.70.



Europe gold holds steady after "neutral" BoE sale
Tuesday November 27, 11:33 am Eastern Time

LONDON, Nov 27 (Reuters) - Gold marked time on Tuesday afternoon after absorbing another 20 tonnes of metal sold by the Bank of England at auction earlier in the day, but prices were seen drifting lower, traders said.

The amount of gold on offer was 2.6 times oversubscribed, and attracted bids totalling 1,655,600 ounces.

Dealers said the market's lack of reaction to the sale -- the BoE's 15th sale of gold since 1999-- was a reflection of the ``routine auctions'' held by the bank every other month.

The previous BoE sale, which came after the September 11 attacks in the United States was covered 4.3 times at $280.00.


Indians likely to buy more gold
Tuesday, November 27, 2001

India, the world's largest consumer of gold, is likely to step up imports in the short term to take advantage of attractive global prices and rising demand for jewellery, traders and analysts said yesterday. They said a 20-tonne gold reserve auction by Bank of England today was unlikely to cause any wild fluctuations in prices and it would remain in the range of $270-280 per troy ounce. There is good demand for jewellery and Indians are comfortable in importing gold at current prices, a bullion dealer based in Ahmedabad, told Retuters. Most Indian traders expect the auction to attract buying at around $271-272 and the yellow metal to continue to trade in the $270-280 range in the short term. India's gold demand had waned due to spurt in price after the attacks on United States and softening of prices in the last couple of weeks had revived demand, traders said.
