Have You Met Mike?

You may not have had the opportunity to meet KMG Gold's president and CEO Michael Gupton, but on Friday August 2, 2013, BNI Canada did.

BNI Canada is a professional marketing organization that specializes in word of mouth referrals, something that KMG Gold strongly identifies with. Mike attributes a large part of his business' success to the positive word of mouth referrals that happy customers have provided him with. These happy referrals played a large hand in KMG Gold being awarded three Better Business Bureau Torch Awards in two years in addition to being nominated for an additional two for this current year.

Always happy to address a crowd, Gupton delights in sharing insider tips about the gold buying industry and is always happy to lend his expertise regarding precious metal recycling.

Thinning Gold Volume and Slowing Emerging World Growth amidst Uncertainty of the Fed's Tapering

www.kmggold.com The U.S. Comex gold futures fell for six consecutive days and ended at $1,282.60 on Tuesday. During Asia Wednesday morning, the gold futures fell a further 0.40 percent. The prices have already dropped over two percent this week while they went up 7.25 percent in July, the best month after January 2012.

After rising 0.31 percent last week, the Dollar Index dropped 0.37 percent in the past two days. Both the S&P 500 Index and the Euro Stoxx 50 Index declined 0.72 percent this week.

Developing World Growth Slows while Developed World Data Improve
The thinning liquidity during the summer months and the earnings disappointment from HSBC, the largest European bank, have contributed to weakness in the stock and gold markets this week. HSBC pointed to slowing growth in the developing world especially in Asia and Latin America while the Fed is preparing to taper its QE bond purchases.

The recent U.S. economic data have been mixed. The non-farm payrolls in July added only 162,000 compared to 188,000 in June. The PCE inflation index rose 1.3 percent in June, well below the Fed's two percent threshold. The July ISM services index jumped unexpectedly to 56 compared to 52.2 in June.

Improving economic data has led the Chicago Fed President Evans, one of the biggest supporters of monetary stimulus, to suggest that tapering in September cannot be ruled out. Outside of the U.S., the June German order expanded 3.8 percent, the highest monthly change in eight months. The U.K. industrial production surged 1.90 percent in June compared to the expected 0.7 percent.

Investors Turn Negative while Physical Demand Eases
The gold-backed ETP holdings stabilized at the end of July, but the decline has resumed since month-end. The holdings have dropped about 675 tons since the peak of 2,632 tons reached on 20 December last year.

According to the CFTC, the net combined position in gold by managed money dropped for the first time in a month during the week ending 30 July as the number of shorts contracts rose and the number of the long contracts declined. In India, gold imports have ground to a halt recently due to the uncertainty over the government's curb on gold imports.

According to Barclays, the jump in local bar premiums to $45/oz was driven more by the gold shortage rather than a surge in demand. The gold volume traded in Shanghai continues to ease while the bar premiums in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Tokyo have all fallen. The net gold imports from Hong Kong into China have dropped from 106 metric tons in May to 101 metric tons in June as the price outlook and the Fed policy remain uncertain. www.kmggold.com

Investors Sell Gold as the U.S. Economy Strengths More than Expected

www.kmggold.com The U.S. Comex gold futures have dropped close to one percent since the FOMC meeting on 31 July and ended at $1,310.80 on Thursday. During Friday in Asia, the gold futures have faced further selling pressure before the U.S. payrolls data. The Dollar Index declined 0.46 percent on Wednesday but surged 1.09 percent to end at 82.336 on Thursday.

The crude oil futures jumped 2.72 percent on Thursday after surging 1.89 percent on Wednesday. The S&P 500 index climbed 1.24 percent while the Euro Stoxx 50 index surged 1.79 percent in the past two days. The S&P 500 index scored a new record this week.

Economic Data and Central Banks Policies
The gold futures have dropped in the past three days as the stronger U.S. economic data has strengthened the case for QE tapering in September. The Q2 U.S. annualized GDP growth was 1.7 percent compared to the expected 1.1 percent. The July ISM manufacturing index was also higher than expected at 55.4 while the weekly initial jobless claims were 19,000 lower than expected at 326,000.

In China, the official July PMI unexpectedly expanded to 50.3 from 50.1 in June. However, the HSBC Markit PMI data, covering smaller private companies, saw a fall to 47.7. In the Euro-area, the July Markit manufacturing PMI was higher than expected at 50.3. The ECB President intends to keep interest rates low for an extended period of time and sees the Euro-area economies stabilizing. The BOE has also kept the interest rates unchanged while the U.K. July PMI jumped to 54.6 compared to 52.5 in June.

Factors Beyond the U.S.
On the same day of the FOMC meeting, the World Gold Council (WGC) released a report urging gold investors not to overestimate the impact of the rising interest rates and the tightening of the monetary policy in the U.S. on the gold prices. Nominal interest rates between 2.5 to 6.5 percent are normally associated with an average annualized gold return of six to seven percent.

Emerging markets are now making up about 70 percent of the annual gold demand while the investment demand in the U.S. including ETF demand is only ten percent. In fact, the LBMA has reported that the net amount of gold transferred between gold clearers reached a 12-year high in June. Other drivers of gold prices will be the demand from the central banks and the likely decline in supply.

What to Watch
The market will clearly focus on the July U.S. non-farm payrolls and the unemployment rate on 2 August. We will also monitor the Bank of Japan's target rate announcement, the ECB monthly bulletin, and the Chinese July trade data on 8 August as well as the July China inflation, industrial production, and fixed investments data on 9 August. www.kmggold.com
