In this case, the best way to deal with the situation was to pass it day after day. When it worked, the market calmed down and three days later, rents essentially returned to normal. But if the industrial consumer had decided to buy it at this higher price level, he would have suffered a significant – and unnecessary – increase in his costs. Until the end of the week, the price of platinum had also withdrawn. The precious metal is traded in the precious metals market, which is primarily a 24-hour over-the-counter market. The trading volume on the precious metals market is high, since it covers the vast majority of precious metals trading prices on a given day. Most transactions are made electronically or by telephone. There are various global markets for precious metals, including London, New York, Tokyo and Zurich. While precious metals banks are not the only parties offering the type of leasing described by Mr Butler, I will use, for the sake of simplicity, the label `Bullion Bank Leasing` to refer to it. To properly manage our business, we need a reliable and predictable stock – so there are minimum durations for the rental contract as well as a fixed notice period.

Other companies want to borrow rather than buy gold or silver to keep their silver consumption low. Leasing gives more flexibility to their activities in managing money. Still others opt for a loan to unlock cash. Finally, in a bridge lease agreement, there are those that are often used in oil refining and pharmacy. Precious metals can sometimes be considered legal tender, most often held in reserves by central banks or used by institutional investors to hedge against inflationary effects on their portfolios. About 20% of the gold mined is held by central banks around the world. This gold is held in the form of bars in reserves used by the Bank to repay international debt or stimulate the economy through gold credit. The Central Bank lends gold from its investment reserves to precious metal banks at an interest rate of about 1% to raise funds. Precious metals banks that lend gold to mining companies would normally do so to finance a project run by the company.

If some or all of its buyers expect a physical delivery of the gold bullion, the mining company would choose to borrow the gold from the bank, which will then be delivered to buyers on the other side of the maturity. Gold loaned to mining companies is usually repaid from the companies` future mining production. The price of gold bullage is influenced by the demand of companies that use gold to make jewelry and other products. The price is also influenced by the perception of the whole economy. For example, gold is becoming increasingly popular as an investment in times of economic instability. However, Monetary Metals` leases are real gold leases and therefore have real interest rates on gold. Prices are set through a market auction procedure. Individuals and institutions set the sentence they are willing to accept. This means that after the start of the lease, you must commit for at least one year (similar to a GIC) and then terminate 3 months in advance.

The contract will remain in service indefinitely and you will continue to collect interest until you decide to terminate. Only the minimum duration is indicated. Investments are credited to our Vault account and you can view your credit online. In case of termination, you can choose to sell us your metal at the current market price or get your stock directly in the form of coins or ingots. As payments are made in precious metals, there is no complicated valuation to be made. If your rate is z.B. 2%, so we write to you for 100 fines of silver that you rent from us, 2 extra ounces per year well…
