Overall the dollar was weaker against all global currencies early today. Before London’s opening:

Yuan Gold Fix

At the close in Shanghai today, the gold price was trading at 275.50 Yuan, which directly translates into $1,242.48. But allowing for the difference of gold being traded this equates to a price of $1,237.48. This more than $17.48 higher than the New York close and $13.33 higher than London.

With arbitrage opportunities wide open between Shanghai and New York/London we see Shanghai pulling gold out of them. Dealers in London and New York ignored the decent tonnages being bought into the U.S. based gold ETFs recently and held prices down. We expect this to change in the days to come.
