Another Impressive Year For Global Gold Demand - World Gold Council

Topics [ financial crisis gold bull market ]


Global demand for gold in 2011 rose to 4,067.1 tonnes (t) worth an estimated US$205.5 billion - the first time that global demand has exceeded US$200 billion and the highest tonnage level since 1997, the World Gold Council said today.

The main driver for this increase was the investment sector where annual demand was 1,640.7t up 5% on the previous record set in 2010 and with a value of US$82.9 billion.

The pre-eminent markets for investment demand in 2011 were India, China and Europe. Central banks continued the trend established in 2010 of being net buyers of gold.

Marcus Grubb, WGC Managing Director, Investment said: “What we can see from these 2011 figures is that there were two main factors driving the results: Asian growth and optimism on the one hand and western desire to protect assets against uncertainty on the other."

In his recent post, Bron answered the question How Are Perth Mint Gold And Silver Spot Rates Calculated?

The next logical question for bullion buyers might be “how do I follow every change in The Perth Mint spot rate throughout the trading day?”

For many, the spot price graphs on our homepage are useful for deciding when to buy or sell precious metals.

However, for those that don’t have time to watch the graph all day long, there’s a better option – as many small investors have already discovered.

Automatic Email & SMS Price Alerts

For everyone registered to buy on www.perthmintbullion.com, we offer a free, automated ‘Price Alerts’ service.

Here’s how it works.

You choose the metal(s) you are interested in and set a ‘low’ price at which you want to buy and a ‘high’ price at which you’d consider selling.

As soon as our spot rate hits either of these upper and lower limits, the service triggers an immediate personal alert via e-mail or SMS.

These prompts are designed to ensure you’ll never miss a potential buying or selling opportunity in today’s volatile market.

Thousands of our registered buyers are already relying on Price Alerts, suggesting that this invaluable tool is helping investors in their aim of “buying low and selling high”.

Please register or login now to set up your own bullion Price Alerts.
