RE: [sharechat] Weak Gold - Great Time To Buy

From: "Baa Baa" <>

Gold in USD has dropped. In Kiwi$ it has perked up slightly because the 
forex effect hasn't dropped the Kiwi against the USD quite as much as Gold 
has dropped in USD
Gold in AUS$ has actually perked up too

This is important to note imo for two reasons;

1. Physical metal buyers in AUS or NZ aren't seeing a drop in local priced 
Gold, so it's not neccessarily a better time to buy as there is no weakness 
to speak of. The best time to buy is always a strengthening USD -and- a 
strengthening local currency, which of course only happens when locally 
there is some event which resets the forex ratios, like interest rate 
movements for example. The reverse is true for selling strength, i.e. a 
weakening USD and a weakening local currency = local priced Gold shoots 

2. The AUS gold mining stocks weaken in sympathy with the USD Gold price, 
not the AUS Gold price, so I agree, buy that stock weakness if you can. Some 
people may not realise that the minies pay expenses in $AUS, but sell Gold 
in $USD, so while expenses stay flat, revenue falls = stock price falls.

Nice to see a timely post about the metals stocks.
Best to you
