Gold Falls as Investors Await G-7 Announcement

Release Date: 
Monday, February 11, 2013

Gold prices tumbled on the New York Spot Market in morning trading as investors moved to the sidelines to await news from the G-7 summit on the looming currency wars. A number of nations, including the U.S., Japan and China, have adopted policies which devalue their currencies to bolster their economies. The so-called G-7 nations are reportedly discussing a commitment to “market-determined” exchanges rates.

“The speculation over the G-7 statement is having an impact on gold and silver as traders are ‘squaring off their open positions,’ preferring to remain on the sidelines before a meeting expected later this week,’” a bullion consultant told MarketWatch. (You can read more about the global currency devaluations and possible currency wars in Goldline’s most recent American Advisor newsletter which is available by calling 800-963-9798.)

As of 9:3 5 a.m. PT, gold was trading at $1646.90, down $21.30. Silver fell to $30.99, down $0.54.

Gold prices were further affected the commencement of the Asian Lunar New Year. “Due to the Chinese New Year, volume is thinner…and is subject to some increased volatility,” the director of metals trading with Vision Financial Markets explained to Kitco News. “You saw it drifting lower for the bulk of the overnight session as physical buyers from Asia were on the sidelines. So you’re lacking some of the normal support you would see into a break.”

Harry Colvin, director and senior economist at Longview Economics, said last week the gold price could rise between $300-400 this year, breaking through the $2,000 per ounce mark. "Everyone is always bearish at the lows, that's the time to buy it, we're going to get a good rally this year.”

His view was echoed by Eugen Weinberg, head of commodities research at Commerzbank, who believes, as inflationary pressures become more visible in the second-half of the year, gold prices could hit $2,000 at some point in the fourth quarter or early 2014.
