India’s gold market in June: Jewellery demand improved further, continued inflows into Indian gold ETFs

Jewellery demand improved further in the month but failed to recover completely due to recurring lockdowns, lower number of weddings and lack of auspicious days in the month. Bullish gold price momentum and safe-haven demand lured investors towards gold ETFs. Total holdings for Indian gold ETFs reached to 24t in June.

1) As per @efmacpherson, gold and the dollar were pegged till 1971; need to disentangle that effect to go that far back; seen from the currency lens, gold has considerably outperformed fiat money

Gold demand in China, in particular, investment demand, has benefited from rising concerns for the economy as well as the lowered opportunity cost amid the COVID-19 outbreak and the central bank’s response to it. But with signs of a potential economic recovery emerging, can we expect gold’s attractiveness as a safe haven in China to fade? We believe that the answer is ‘No’.
