06.08.2014 - Demand for oil remains weak

The price of gold continues to consolidate near the level of 1290 dollars per troy ounce, after yesterday when quotations fell sharply against the strengthening dollar, which was caused by strong data on non-manufacturing PMI, which rose to 58.7, compared with an expected 56.6, as well as growth of factory orders by 1.1% against the expected growth of 0.6%. Positive macroeconomic indicators in the United States improve confidence in more rapid raising of interest rates, which will reduce the demand for gold. Gold consumption in Asia also remains at a low level. Demand for gold may be increased due to the fall on the stock markets. We maintain our positive outlook for the medium-term.
