  • MAJOR EVENTS China continues to be the largest consumer of largest varieties of commodities produced in the world; and as 2013 draws to a close, the dragon country is going to be the top global consumer of the hottest and most valuable commodity: gold. Latest data from the World Gold Council says that China is set to beat India as the biggest consumer of gold as the Chinese demand for gold in 2013 is forecast to be a whopping 1,000 tonnes. For several decades, India used to be the worlds largest gold consumer with Indians buying anything between 600 to 800 tonnes of the bullion metal every year. Indians continue to buy gold despite the economic recession that is prevalent in the country; but the Chinese buying spree seems to be fast overtaking India. According to the Gold Council data, China's demand for jewellery, bars and coins rose 30 per cent to 996.3 tonnes in the year to September. But in India, the largest gold consumer so far, gold consumption increased only by 24 per cent to touch 977 tonnes .The report says that Mainland Chinese themselves bought 147.9 tonnes of gold in October month, including scrap gold, compared with 116.3 tonnes in September. The gold consumption was three times higher than the 47.5 tonnes last year. In October, China imported a whopping 131 tonnes of gold from Hong Kong alone. US crude oil edged down for a fourth day on Wednesday after US crude oil inventories rose for a ninth week. Tracking a sideways trend on NYMEX crude oil futures. Meanwhile, India crude oil futures recorded a decline on fresh selling pressured by appreciation of Indian Rupee (INR) against US Dollar (USD). Crude oil futures for December delivery on India's Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) was seen trading with loss of 0.80% at Rs.5849 per barrel as of 15.08 IST on Wednesday. US crude oil inventories rose by 6.92 mn barrels last week, according to the weekly data released by the American Petroleum Institute (API) on Thursday. US Energy Information Administration (EIA) is scheduled to release its weekly crude oil and natural gas stock-piles data at 21.00 and 22.30 IST on Wednesday. Analysts expect a rise in crude oil inventories which is a bearish factor for the commodity prices in the global market. China copper market remains buoyant due to a combination of scrap shortage and stock building. China copper demand appears very positive in 2013 and more traders want to book higher contract tonnages in 2014 thanks to increased import financing. Refined copper production is also expected to show strong growth. China stock build up is also a driver of copper demand. Estimates range from 100-300 kt. We believe the build has occurred in both unreported stocks held by traders and a one-off working inventory pipeline fill. Substitution out of scrap and into cathode has had a bigger impact on demand than we had previously factored in. Scrap supply has been very tight this year, especially in China where imports have shrunk 10% y/y YTD. Subsequently semis producers have been using more cathodes and less scrap in their raw material mix. There has been resurgence in copper import financing driven by tighter monetary conditions. Financing costs are now the most attractive since the beginning of 2012. Recently, banks have also begun to allow entrecote financing again, which could lead to builds in bonded stocks into the year-end. Bonded stocks have risen from a low of 425Kt in July to 500-550Kt currently. Gold: China emerges as top global consumer. MCX Crude Oil declines on fresh selling, EIA data may put further pressure. China Copper market buoyant, boosted by scrap substitution.
