Weekly Chinese Gold Demand Increases At 35 MT, YTD 670 MT

Chinese weekly gold demand is back on the rise after being below 30 metric tonnes for three weeks. In week 17 (21-4-2014/25-4-2014) SGE withdrawals, which equal Chinese wholesale demand, accounted for 35 metric tonnes. Just below the year to date average of 39 tonnes. Premiums are still around zero.

Overview Shanghai Gold Exchange data 2014 week 17

– 35 metric tonnes withdrawn in week 17 (21-4-2014/25-4-2014)

– w/w + 20.43  %

– 670 metric tonnes withdrawn year to date, – 4.5 % year to date.

My research indicates that SGE withdrawals equal Chinese wholesale gold demand. For more information read this.
