FAZ: Political Crisis Doesn't Boost Gold Price

LONDON, 24 April 2012 - World-leading online gold and silver exchange BullionVault features today in a report on the gold market by Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Germany's best-selling national newspaper.

"Political crisis in Holland, France, Spain, and a weak economy across the European Monetary Union would be good reasons for a rising gold price. The precious metal has always served as a haven of safety. But despite renewed turmoil in the markets, gold prices are trading lower."

FAZ quotes Marcus Grubb - managing director for investment at the World Gold Council, which "represents the interests of the industry and is actively involved in boosting physical demand for gold" - suggesting that the current price weakness is also due to banks lending out gold to raise cash.

"The WGC is a 10% shareholder in BullionVault, the London-based company for trading and storing physical gold," says the newspaper. "London is the biggest market place for physical gold in the world."
