The West Is Losing Control Over the Gold Price

Source: Barry Dawes


August 30, 2023 ( Newswire) Barry Dawes of Martin Place Securities looks at the current state of gold, silver, and iron ore. He also looks at the Shanghai market.

The Jackson Hole Fed talkfest pointed to interest rates staying high to slow the economy and try to wring out inflation, so the gold market had quite a volatile day on Friday but ended about even.

It is amazing to think that these unelected bureaucrats have such control over people's lives.

Gold moved higher as it broke that short-term downtrend.

Gold has broken its downtrend from the wedge and is working out what to do next.

But it won't take much longer for gold to break the downtrend from the May highs.

That downtrend is <2% (<US$40/oz) away.

Gold could be very strong from here once this is broken.

Jan Nieuwenhuijs from Gainesville Coins has written a very useful report on how The West is losing Control of the Gold Price.

His thesis is that Western institutions have bought and sold gold according to the TIPS (Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities) as a measure of real interest rates.

The match over the past 16 years for gold and TIPS yield has been very strong, but in 2023 falling inflation and rising interest rates brought TIPS to a 1.5% real yield.

But gold has simply ignored this.

Gold has also ignored a rising US$ (DXY Index).

The author has also followed import/export flows of gold and notes that the main suppliers of above-ground gold ( UK and Switzerland) have been selling over the last nine months to match the rise in the TIPS yield.

This shows Western institutions (whoever they are) have been selling.

And following through on the import numbers, it appears that central banks have been even bigger buyers of gold over the past year.

It seems China has been doing most of the buying. 

The strong underlying demand for gold appears to be overcoming Western institutional trading and could be setting gold up for a reassessment and revaluation.

Gold has been boxed in for over 44 months.

A break of that short-term downtrend will see a test of US$2090 for the FOURTH time!

Nothing will hold it back after making a new high.

Gold in AU$ is looking very good.

Gold Stocks

These turning points are important to follow and anticipate the changes.

Most of these upturns started in August-September, with the resumption of interest after the northern hemisphere summer holidays.

GDX Gold Stock ETF - Recent bottoming at lows and subsequent rallies.

The ASX gold index low point - are we there yet?

Yes, I think so.

Very low-risk entry point.

Downtrend broken.

There is a massive Head and Shoulders reversal developing here!

XGD vs. Gold is at a turning point.

ASX gold stocks are very cheap!



There is a lot of negative commentary on China at present.

But heed the markets and not the commentators!

Note that iron ore is breaking its downtrend.


The Shanghai market is at a very critical point in testing its +30-year-long uptrend.

It is oversold and ready to bounce.

This might even be a capitulation low in China stocks.

Market commentary is still about banking sector and property ready to collapse.

Commentary might be more hot air than reality.

Shanghai has underperformed since 2008 and is still down 50% from those highs.

Timing is everything.

Heed the markets, not the commentators.
