Gold Market Charts – May 2018

Tuesday the 22nd of May 2018
BullionStar's  'Gold Market Charts' is a series of articles covering topical developments in the world's major physical gold markets. These topics include sovereign gold reserve accumulation by Russia and China, gold demand in the wider Chinese gold market, Swiss gold imports and exports, and gold flows into and out of the London Gold Market. The analysis uses gold charts made available by the GOLD CHARTS R US market charting website.

For BullionStar’s own extensive price charts, see BullionStar's website under the Charts menu, where, for example, currencies, cryptocurrencies, stock market indices and commodities can be charted and measured in terms of gold, silver, and other precious metals.
