The market mood remained upbeat at the start of this week after the data from China showed that the business activity in both the manufacturing and the service sectors continued to expand at a robust pace in November. Furthermore, heightened hopes for a UK-EU trade deal and coronavirus vaccine optimism allowed risk flows to dominate the financial markets. The precious metal struggled to find demand on Monday and prices touched its lowest level since late June at Rs 47500/10 gm.

As usual, a number of deadlines for the BREXIT negotiations have elapsed during the last few weeks without this having any impact. The EU chief negotiator, Barnier, had first mentioned the end of October as the deadline for concluding negotiations, as national parliaments needed time to ratify any agreement. British Prime Minister Johnson countered with an even tighter deadline, saying that further negotiations would make little sense after the EU summit in mid-October. Then the EU summit on November 18 was mentioned as the absolute last date for an agreement. Now, one week later and only five weeks before the last deadline – December 31 – negotiations are continuing

India’s gold shopping peak typically comes ahead of Diwali, or the Festival of Lights that was celebrated last Saturday by Indians.

The calendar year 2020 (CY20) may well turn out to be the worst year for gold demand in India since 1995 if the current trends are extrapolated to full-year forecasts. According to the World Gold Council (WGC), gold demand in India thus far in CY20 stands at 252 tonnes, as compared to 496 tonnes in the same period last year. Even if October – December 2019 (Q4CY19) demand of 194 tonnes is added to the CY20 demand till now, the total demand for CY20 will be lower compared to CY19 total demand of 696 tonnes.

Gold has been a phenomenal investment this year, protecting savers' nest eggs by making strong returns. But more recently the price has started to decline, leaving owners bemused on whether to stick or switch. The precious metal's price has risen 22% thus far in 2020 and has been one of the best places to hold your cash.

The price of an ounce of gold peaked at a record $2075 an ounce in August but has since slipped back, trading at $1900 an ounce in mid-October. The market consensus is that a Biden win would hit markets, as investors react negatively to a tougher tax and regulatory agenda. That would lead to a spike in gold prices. However, we think a gold price surge on a Biden presidential victory and a Democrat win in Congress could be temporary, as expected government stimulus spending would boost growth.

Gold functions as a strategic asset in an investor's portfolio, given its ability to act as an effective diversifier and alleviate losses during tough market conditions and economic downturns. Holdings in bullion-backed exchange-traded funds are wrapping up an eighth quarter of expansion, the longest run in almost a decade . So far in 2020, world total Gold ETF holdings have surged about 860 tons, dwarfing any prior full-year inflow, and are near a record.

Precious metals markets got clobbered last week as gold and silver broke down from their high-level consolidations. Gold prices fell below the $1900 level; meanwhile, silver plummeted below $24 an ounce and traded as low as $22. Strength in the U.S. Dollar Index seemed to be the catalyst that got the selling going. Once key technical levels got breached, the selling intensified.
