Gold Fundamental Price

Monetary Metals’ Fundamental price seeks to back out speculative forces in the gold market to reveal the underlying physical supply and demand picture. The degree of divergence between the market price of gold and the Fundamental price is, in our opinion, an indication of market exuberance or pessimism.

The Fundamental price is computed according to a model based on our economic theory. We believe that this model reflects the forces of supply and demand in the physical market however there is no guarantee that the market price will move to the Fundamental price quickly or ever.
