Gold Economics

Monetary Metals® takes an unconventional approach to economics and precious metal market analysis. At the core of our thinking is the idea of incentives. Largely unnoticed by most people, incentives motivate people to act – be it the entrepreneur who sees an opportunity to profit from meeting the needs of others, or the arbitrageur who keeps markets aligned and efficient by profiting from divergences in prices.

Our Supply and Demand Report is a weekly discussion about the fundamental and speculative forces driving the monetary metals, based on our view that analysis of price spreads can often reveal more about the supply and demand balance in the market than just looking at price movements.
