Gold and palladium strong in price
In the fourth quarter of 2018, the US investment bank Morgan Stanley almost doubled its shares in the world's largest gold ETF, the SPDR Gold Trust (compared to the previous quarter). More than 590 million US dollars were loosened up. The world's largest capital manager, Black Rock, was also on a shopping spree. Its shares in the gold trust now amount to more than 255 million US dollars.
By the way, Commerzbank ranks tenth among the investors in the SPDR Gold Trust. It also increased its stake by 13 percent at the end of 2018. Gold is therefore very popular. The price of the precious metal is currently quoted at around 1,325 US dollars per troy ounce, almost reaching its nine-month high at the end of January. Uncertainties remain in the economy and in politics, just think of the national state of emergency proclaimed by US President Trump.
Also the private investor should not forget gold and shares of gold companies when investing. Of interest could be the promising gold projects (Bolgatanga and Subranum) of Cardinal Resources in Ghana, Africa - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298772. A country that offers attractive conditions for mining companies. Drilling has yielded up to 29.3 grams of gold per tonne of rock in a country that is still largely unexplored.
Sibanye-Stillwater - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298805 - is the largest gold producer in South Africa and one of the largest platinum and palladium producers in the world. Palladium has currently reached a record price level (1,460 US dollars per ounce). For the first time in over a decade, palladium is worth more than gold. This development should further advance the company.
