Gold prices edged toward USD $1245 overnight, after falling as low as USD $1235 in a fairly uneventful Thanksgiving Thursday. Only country specific economic data of note was from Germany, where unemployment rose by 10k (rate unchanged), and CPI picked up slightly too. Whilst news from Germany was OK, private loans in the Eurozone as a whole continued to fall, down 2.1% y.o.y, with lending to individuals picking up slightly, but more than offset by loans to business, which fell by 12 billion Euro. Money Supply growth also declined, all of which will only add to negative interest rate talk heading into next year. Undoubtedly the most interesting (and honest) comment overnight came via Pascal Blanque (article below), CIO at Amundi, who stated We are all long central banks as an industry It's a trade that's worked well in 2013, but i wouldn't be betting my whole portfolio on that continuing (VIEW LINK)
