Reasons For Gold’s Weakness

I've got a post up on corporate site riffing of a recent Jeff Clark article on the same issue, adding in some comments on declining Indian demand and how the bullion banks would have played it. Click here to download the pdf article.

I'll be posting a bit more stuff on the corporate site from now on as I'm off a project I've been working on, so more time to focus on the commentary. You'll see from the pdf format I'll be writing under the Treasury department name. We are looking to beef up the commentary and analysis, maybe with a dedicated subsite under perthmint.com.au. More info to follow and will be interested in feedback and suggestions.

Excellent article. It's sometimes hard to be sure about analysis of the gold market sometimes, more from the PM/yourself is very welcome IMO

Can you not, please, double post here as this is non corporate giving an extra degree of freedom? Nevertheless, much appreciated, thanks.

Great post, thanks Bron

I second Gordon's comment - could you please double-post here like you have done with this article?

Regardless, I think you've been doing a great job lately, it's great to have someone with the knowledge and mindset to challenge the myths in the mainstream.

I don't believe Gold Chat is going to be shutting down as such, and there will still be comments here, however imo, the idea of double posting these "new format articles" is not a good idea. It could be seen as detracting from the official Perth Mint website. People who have not seen Bron's Blog previously may ask, "Well, which is it then? Where is the proper place to comment on these articles?" I believe that there should only be one place, and not two.

Gordon said...

Good point Anon. Maybe just a heads up pointing to new postings. Better still, though, would be a more speculative, personal extrapolation of these posts at the official site.

Bron said...

I just posted it as a FYI/heads up as to what I'm doing. Same as when I post saying I've left comments on FOFOA blog etc. This blog is then sort of log of my activities whereever they are.

As to where to comment, I don't really like to lock it out. Some may prefer to ask questions here as it can be more free ranging.

But there is a fair point about maintaining a clear line between official and personal stuff.

I only check your personal blog, so much appreciated when you repost articles you have written for the mint here.

I personally think that hard numbes on pm sales by the Perth Mint are the best antidote to all the rumor-mongers out there. Bron, I would love to see a periodic update like the one you just did, perhaps even a weekly one if possible?

Bron said...

Yep, will work on that.

Seer said...

That would be great! Thanks.
