  • Gold prices: where are they set? - The Real Asset Co
    the first quarter of 2013 ETF holdings fell by 176 9 tonnes The WGC argue that ETFs account for only a small proportion of total gold held by investors i e it is not ETF outflows which are driving the price On first impressions one might assume the futures market is larger than the ETFs market However if you compare notional value of open interest in the future market with the market cap of gold ETPs taken on 15 th May 2013 the newer ETP market just outsizes the futures market with a value of 81 billion compared to the futures market s 74 billion Refineries and supply to physical gold market After the two gold market parts above we arrive at the physical gold market which is supplied by a range of refineries around the world The top refineries in the world have a collective refining capacity of 8000 tonnes the equivalent to 354 billion This is assuming that they are able to operate at full capacity and are constantly processing given mine and scrap gold supply However supply of gold bullion to the market is on average 4 400 tonnes per year This physical gold supply is made up of approximately one third recycled gold with the rest coming from active gold mines Supply of gold has remained relatively flat since the start of the gold bull market twelve years ago meaning that the world s growing gold demand has to be serviced by this steady supply See our infographic of the world s major gold refineries by capacity below It s interesting to note Switzerland dominating the gold refining scene For a country which only officially left the gold standard in 2000 and was the epitome of sound money until quite recently this is perhaps unsurprising Within the constituency of physical gold suppliers Switzerland s Valcambi dominates the gold refining market followed by Metalor and Rand which are both about half the size Metalor is also Swiss based with South Africa s famous Rand Refinery continuing to hold a position amongst the most noteworthy refineries The top three refineries in the world account for over 30 of total annual capacity of those refineries studied REFINERY CAPACITY tonnes annum Valcambi 1 400 Metalor 650 Rand Refinery 600 Total 2 650 Together these three refineries account for 2 650 tonnes or 32 of global gold refining capacity Valcambi alone represents over 16 of global gold refining capacity and 28 of the capacity of the top nine refineries It is important to note the lack of mining and refining information in areas such as South America and China hence why we don t mention refineries from these areas At first glance the gold production capacity from refineries appears to more than match the value of assets traded in the futures and ETPs markets The nature of trading in these markets is more difficult to compare though and the paper markets are where the greatest daily volumes occur After looking at the size of the relative gold market constituent parts we need to look deeper to establish where the gold price really gets set and how this happens The physical market although larger with its lower turnover and churn is less relevant at this time with gold prices being set in the paper markets of COMEX GLD et al We are thus focused upon COMEX and GLD the largest liquidity hubs in their respective markets How do their trading volumes compare In the last week the value of the gold traded on the COMEX far exceeded that on the GLD by over 20 times in fact To put this paper trading into perspective the annual capacity of refineries is 374 billion Therefore the last week s gold trading volumes on COMEX were equivalent to 50 of total annual refinery capacity Half the physical gold that could possibly be refined in a year was traded in paper form this week So whilst the notional value of open interest on the world s major futures markets is comparable to the market cap of the gold ETP industry the volumes traded at the major two liquidity hubs within these different market segments is noticeably different The dollar value of trading volume at COMEX is far greater than its largest ETF competitor GLD meaning that COMEX continues to hold its place as the largest and most sophisticated meeting place for buyers and sellers to express their gold price opinions in the form of bids and offers on what the price should be COMEX remains the beating heart of gold price discovery Questions being raised about COMEX Gold futures contracts are referred to as paper gold because the size of this market is said to be over 100 times larger than physical gold available As we said previously open interest on the COMEX at the time of writing accounted for over 85 of demand on the gold futures market so COMEX receives the most examination here In theory investors are able to take delivery of the futures contract on expiry although few do instead choosing to roll the contract This may not be a bad thing as there is currently only 6 million troy ounces of eligible gold in the COMEX depositories Whilst these gold inventories would allow delivery against all the May contracts currently traded on COMEX it is only enough to allow delivery against 33 of the June contracts Contracts spanning May through until August represent 31 million troy ounces of gold of which less than 5 of these could be delivered upon at current COMEX depository holdings Much of the paragraph above assumes futures holders taking delivery of contracts on a larger scale than they currently do Even so the fact remains that all the long positions on COMEX cannot be settled in gold This may be something that is bothering investors despite there being few as deeply liquid and efficient market alternatives for large institutional investors There has been some attention paid
