NEW YORK, Sept. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The gold market held steady at around USD 1,815 an ounce on Wednesday. In an interview with Kitco News, Robert Minter, Director of Investment Strategy at Aberdeen Standard Investments, said that it will soon be clear that the ongoing pandemic and the growing threat of the Delta Variant will continue to weigh on the U.S. labor market, which is a critical element to the Federal Reserve’s plan to reduce its monthly bond purchases. “There is this belief that come September, magically, 11 million people are supposed to find 10 million jobs and go back to work,” he said. “I just don’t see that happening COVID is not nearly over yet. The recovery right now is in retrograde, it’s not fatal, but it’s enough to keep pressure on the Fed to maintain its current monetary policies.” TD Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: GLG), Kinross Gold Corporation (NYSE: KGC), Sandstorm Gold Ltd. (NYSE: SAND), B2Gold Corp.

Going forward, inflation is expected to play a major role in deciding the future of gold. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) 2020 annual report, USD 12 Trillion has been pumped into global financial markets as governments and central banks worldwide have tried to stabilize the economy that was devastated by the pandemic. Investors are now speculating that the fallout will be seen in higher inflation, especially when the economic activity picks up in the second half of the year. When prices rise and the value of the dollar falls, gold is often seen as a hedge against inflation.

TD Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: GLG) announced yesterday breaking news that the Company has entered into a strategic cooperation agreement (the “Agreement”) on August 31, 2021 with Jinyibao International Technology Company Limited (“JIT”), a technology company engaged in global gold spot trading business. The Agreement shall be in effect until August 31, 2023.

The Company agrees to tailor a supply chain service plan for JIT and provide supporting services along the supply chain according to JIT’s needs, such as supply chain procurement services and sales, inventory pledge financing, accounts receivable management, factoring, financial support, and leasing.

According to the “China Gold Yearbook 2021” released by the China Gold Association, China’s gold production in 2020 ranked first in the world. The total transaction volume of China’s gold market stood at about 95,500 tons, and the gold consumption reached 820.98 tons. India’s gold consumption is second only to China as the country consumed 544.6 tons of gold in 2019. The Company will mainly focus on the markets of China, India, and the surrounding regions, and plans to expand its global gold spot trading business there.

Ms. Renmei Ouyang, the Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, “Cooperating with JIT to enter the global gold spot trading market is of great strategic significance for the Company’s long-term development. This move enriches the Company’s commodity trading platforms, expands the scale of the platforms, and opens up a new profit growth point for the Company.”
