How the gold price is fixed
The price of gold is being influenced by: declining confidence in the Euro, the global reserve currency and other western fiat currencies; gold's traditional role as reliable money; and growing Chinese popular wealth. I found this article "How gold is ‘fixed' and what drives the real price" interesting. Disclaimer: I am not in a position to verify the accuracy of any of the assertions made in the article. I acknowledge Mineweb for this article.
