Chinese Physical Gold Demand Surges; Americans Pile Into Stock & Crypto Bubbles

First published by Money Metals here:

Chinese demand for physical gold investment surged in the first three-quarters of 2017 while Americans ditched the shiny yellow metal for increased bets in the crypto mania and stock market bubble market. Even though China’s Hang Seng Stock Market outperformed the Dow Jones Index last year, Chinese citizens purchased the most gold bar and coin products Q1-Q3 2017 since the same period in 2013, when they took advantage of huge gold market price selloff.

$GLD and $SLV Prices as of January 15 2018 @moneymetals

January 15, 2018 -- Gold and silver prices recovered on Friday, closing higher for 5th week in a row. The money metals eked out modest gains based largely on continued weakness in the U.S. dollar.

The DXY index ended at 3-year lows. It is a dismal start to 2018, coming on the heels of a 10% drop in 2017. Last year's drop represents one of the worst annual performances in history for the greenback. The currency markets, like the precious metals markets, are unimpressed by the Fed's recent moves to raise interest rates.

If metals can make a transition to serving as an "inflation hedge" in investors' minds, it may lift prices more significantly.
