Global gold demand up 6% in third quarter 2011

Gold demand in the third quarter of 2011 reached 1,053.9 tonnes, an increase of 6% compared to the same period last year. This equates to US$57.7bn, an all-time high in value terms.

According to the World Gold Council’s Gold Demand Trends report for Q3 2011 released today, this increase was driven by investment demand which rose by 33% year-on-year to 468.1 tonnes, generating record quarterly demand of US$25.6bn.

The report also details a number of other developments:

Investment demand in Europe reached a record quarterly value of €4.6bn, equating to 118.1 tonnes - a year-on-year increase of 135%. The increase in overall investment demand was all the more impressive given the sharp gold price correction in September, which encouraged a wave of profit taking among bar and coin investors. Virtually all markets saw strong double-digit growth in demand for gold bars and coins.

Chinese jewellery demand was 13% higher year-on-year at 131.0 tonnes, equivalent to RMB46.0bn. The bulk of this increase was seen in smaller cities as retail chains expanded their networks to meet increasing demand fuelled by rising income levels. China’s growing appetite for gold as a means of investment saw demand for gold bars and coins expand by 24% from year earlier levels to 60.2 tonnes.

Jewellery demand in India was sluggish during the seasonally slow months of July and August, compounded by high inflation and greater volatility in the local gold price. Buying has since recovered slightly with the onset of the festive and wedding season. Overall, Indian jewellery demand in Q3 saw a 26% decline in tonnage, when compared to the same quarter in 2010, to 125.3 tonnes, however yearly demand to the end of September is very close to the record levels seen in 2010.

Marcus Grubb, Managing Director, Investment at the World Gold Council commented:

“Unsurprisingly investment demand for gold was a key driver during the third quarter. Increasing levels of inflation, the US credit rating downgrade, a worsening eurozone sovereign debt crisis and the lacklustre performance of many assets drove investors to increase holdings in gold in order to protect their wealth. Given gold’s proven risk mitigation properties, it is likely that investors will continue to seek protection from economic uncertainty, which shows no signs of abating.

“The long-term fundamentals for gold remain strong with a diverse and growing demand base coupled with constrained supply-side activity.”

Gold Demand Statistics for Q3 2011:
Global gold demand in the third quarter of 2011 increased 6% year-on-year to reach 1,053.9 tonnes, up from 991.1 tonnes in the third quarter of 2010. Gold demand in value terms was worth a record US$57.7bn up from the previous high of US$45.7bn in the preceding quarter.
The quarterly average price rose 39% from year earlier levels to US$1,702.12, while the gold price reached a new record of US$1,895.00 (London PM Fix) on 5th and 6th September.

Global gold investment demand reached 468.1 tonnes in the third quarter of 2011, up 33% from 352.1 tonnes in the corresponding quarter in 2010. The rise in prices led to a record US$25.6bn in value terms, almost double the US$13.9bn witnessed in Q3 2010.

Demand for gold bars and coins increased 29% to reach 390.5 tonnes, up from 303.0 tonnes in Q3 2010. In value terms demand for bars and coins in Q3 2011 equated to US$21.4bn compared to US$12.0bn in Q3 2010.

In spite of challenging market conditions, gold demand from the global technology sector showed significant resilience and was flat year-on-year at 120.2 tonnes. In value terms demand from the electronics sector was equivalent to a record US$4.8bn.

Central bank net purchases amounted to 148.4 tonnes, as they continued to increase their allocation to gold as a percentage of total reserves.
Gold supply was 1,034.4 tonnes in the third quarter of 2011, 2% higher than year-earlier levels of 1,013.0 tonnes. Mine production increased by 5% to 746.2 tonnes from 710.9 tonnes during the third quarter of 2010.

Despite record prices being reached during the quarter, recycling activity was relatively modest. Third quarter 2011 gold recycling accounted for 426.5 tonnes of supply, up 13% year-on-year from 379.1 tonnes.

Jangkaan 2012 Destenasi ke USD2500 @ Turun USD 1400

Buat keputusan bijak today........


NEW YORK—Gold futures edged higher, settling at the highest price in three weeks as investors continued to warm to the precious metal after December's losses.

The most actively traded gold contract, for February delivery, rose $7.40, or 0.5%, to settle at $1,620.10 a troy ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange, the highest settlement since Dec. 13 and the fourth consecutive session of gains.

"People who were jittery about owning gold probably (cashed out) at the end of 2011," said Adam Klopfenstein, a market strategist with Archer Financial Services. "At these (price) levels, it's regaining a little more investor interest."

Gold prices slumped 10% in December, as some money managers preferred to end the year holding cash instead of precious metals. Worries about a potential financial crisis in Europe led investors turn to the flexibility of the U.S. dollar for safety.

The metal was also supported Thursday as investors sought gold to shield their wealth from political upheaval as debate continued in Europe over a potential oil embargo against Iran.

Iran has threatened to block a key oil-trade choke point at the mouth of the Persian Gulf if Europe goes ahead with sanctions targeting the country's suspected nuclear weapons program.

Many analysts are sticking to their bullish outlook for gold in 2012 on expectations that strain in the global financial system and high levels of developed-world debt will boost the metal's appeal as an alternative asset.

"Gold should ultimately benefit from any negative global economic conditions," HSBC analyst James Steel said in a note.

HSBC and Barclays Capital both reduced 2012 gold-price forecasts Thursday, but held to expectations for rising prices this year.

HSBC cut its outlook by 9%, to $1,850 a troy ounce. Barclays cut its estimate by 6% from a November forecast, to $1,875 an ounce.

The investment banks cited moves by financial institutions to pare their debt, an uncertain outlook for physical gold demand and recent investor preference for the U.S. dollar above other assets, among other potential headwinds to the market.

Investor clamor for the dollar has taken some of the shine off of gold in recent months, as strength in that currency made dollar-denominated gold more expensive for buyers using other currencies.

"As long as confidence in the [euro zone] is being undermined, we could see a strengthening dollar cut into any upside for precious metals," said Marc Ground, an analyst with Standard Bank, in a note.

The euro was at about $1.278 at the close of Comex gold floor trading, versus $1.2944 late Wednesday in New York.
