The Social Gold Mine

So, whilst the rest of the world was on Royal Baby watch we were very firmly on gold price watch, and we promise it was a lot more exciting than watching the world’s press talk for hours about something they had no information on.

And of course this has opened the door for the next batch of price predictions. The best article on that elusive $2,000 gold comes courtesy of @gold_tracker’s scoopit feed.

The other interesting news of the day comes courtesy of South Korea who has announced the launch of a gold exchange.

Unfortunately however, it wasn’t all good news. In India the government and central bank are carrying out more controls on gold imports. This evening the Reserve Bank of India have announced that for every amount of gold imported, one-fifth must be used for export.

And finally, the difference between the gold price and the price of gold, if you’re not familiar already.
