Gold ETFs register massive capital influx; while PDI, GPP, ERM, AME, RED Under Investors’ Lens

Commodity-linked ETFs have marked a capital inflow surge over the recent rise in the commodity prices. As per the data, over US$5.0 billion of capital marked an inflow in the commodity-linked ETFs till June 2019.

The recent upsurge in gold brought more than US$139 million of capital inflows in gold-linked ETFs alone. The gold prices skyrocketed over global cues and the United States Federal indication over a possible interest rate decline, which in turn, reduced the dollar valuation and supported the gold prices.

The gold rush has marked interest from shark investors as well, and as per the data, SPDR Gold shares received over US$1.5 billion of inflows on 25th June.

More than gold, the recent escalation in middle east tension and the war situation between the United States and America have seen oil prices jumping high in June 2019, which in turn, marked a capital inflow of more than US$420 million.

The global uncertainty is pulling the Gold-ETF demand, and in the first quarter of the year 2019, assets in European gold-backed ETPs reached the level of 1,121.4 tonnes, which in turn, mark a value of US$48 billion. The European gold-backed exchange traded products now accounted for 45 per cent of the global exchange-traded product market.

Gold Price Trend:

XAU Daily Chart (Source: Thomson Reuters)

On a daily chart, the gold prices have crossed the initial hurdle offered by the downward sloping trend line. Post witnessing a Golden Cross (Bullish signal) of 200 and 100 days exponential moving average on a daily chart; the prices rose; however, the prices corrected and took the support of 200-days EMA and managed to breach the first hurdle.

Presently, the prices have almost reached the level of 161.8 per cent of the projected Fibonacci Series, which is at US$1443.93, where the prices are expected to take a short-term hurdle. The investors should keep a close eye around the level as a break above or failure to do so would decide further price action in gold.

While, the gold prices are skyrocketing, and the related ETFs are showing large capital inflows, let us take a look at the gold miners as well, as, the gold rush supports the gold mining companies fundamentals.
