Week 41 Shanghai Gold Exchange Physical Delivery

Today the SGE published trading numbers from last week. The Chinese are not slowing down their physical gold purchases this year. Although the 2013 weekly SGE delivery record stands at 117 tons, last weeks physical delivery was 47 tons, which is above the yearly average of 41.7 tons.
We saw a little rise in the premium on SGE spot gold, on 11 October it was 1.5 % over the international price. This week we saw premiums in India rising significantly, next friday we’ll know if the same happened on the SGE.
Year to date physical delivery, which equals Chinese gold demand, is an incredible 1709 tons, net import is over 1000 tons.Overview:

– 47 metric tonnes delivered in week 41 (left the SGE vaults), 30-09-2013/11-10-2013

– 1709 metric tonnes delivered year to date
