The 9th China Gold & Precious Metals Summit 2014, an annual precious metals gathering co-hosted by the Shanghai Gold & Jewelry Trade Association and IGVision International Corporation Shanghai and jointly endorsed by the China Gold Association and the Shanghai Gold Exchange, is scheduled to be convened on December 3-4, 2014 in Shanghai China. As China’s largest networking and information exchange platform for gold & precious metals industry, the event has been successfully held for eight consecutive years, attracting over 250 senior executives from across the value chain including mining companies, refiners & fabricators, bullion dealers, mints, central banks, exchanges, investment & bullion banks, money managers, traders, brokers, advisors, jewelers, service providers, trade associations and policymakers every year.
Now at its 9th anniversary, the conference will highlight the price trend and supply & demand picture for gold, silver, platinum and palladium, multiple headwinds weighing on gold as a combination of a firmer U.S. dollar, a strengthening U.S. recovery and a less accommodative Fed going forward, overall weak sentiment toward gold and silver as a result of better returns in equities and higher U.S. real rates, subdued physical gold demand out of China and India, China’s push for a global trading platform for gold in Shanghai, the move by senior producers toward lower costs and capital discipline, the impact on PGMs’ supply/demand balances because of the South African strikes, and the ECB’s stance on further monetary easing to combat falling inflation.
