World Gold Council reports ETF reversal in November, but still record year
“In November, gold-backed ETFs and similar products (gold ETFs) recorded their first net outflows in twelve months and second largest monthly outflows ever. Gold ETF holdings decreased by 107 tonnes (t) during the month – US$6.8bn or 2.9% of assets under management (AUM) – as the gold price had its worst monthly move (-6.3%, US$1,763/oz) since November 2016, when it dipped 7.4%.”
USAGOLD note: We were due for a turnaround at some point. That said, the 916 metric tonne net gain thus far this year is still the largest on record and 50% higher than the previous highpoint in 2009 (646 metric tonnes).
