Monthly ETF Commentary

Global gold ETFs saw a net outflow of US$920mn in November, significantly narrower than October (-US$2bn). North America led global inflows while Europe continued to witness sizable outflows in the month.

Gold Market Commentary

Gold prices started the month on the backfoot, having fallen below US$1,850/oz at the end of September. The events in Israel in early October set a rally in motion that took the US dollar price back up above US$2,000/oz by 27 October. The record-high monthly finish was mirrored in almost all other major currencies.
