Jumping “golden wave” beware… “underground collapse”
Mr. Truong Hien Phuong – Senior Director of KIS Vietnam Securities said that when there are any fluctuations in the market, people always think of gold as a safe haven. So in any crisis the price of gold goes up and this is a very normal psychology of investors.
However, according to this expert, in the present time, when investors see that the price of gold has gone up to buy, this “shelter” can be dangerous, even “collapse” later.
Explaining this point of view, Mr. Phuong said that the world reacted early to the rising price of gold, that is when the price of gold increased from more than 50 million dong/tael to 74-75 million dong/tael. It can be seen that the gold price has gone too far, up more than 50% already.
Firstly, with the world gold speculators, they also sell to take profit and let go because if the gold price is pushed higher, the number of investors participating in the market will be less. When it is no longer profitable, world investors will sell gold. Meanwhile, speculators and large gold traders in the country also behave similarly.
Second, the price of gold in the country is actually “undervalued, inflated” more. Because the domestic gold market is quite small and is in the hands of big gold traders. This is easy to see because the difference between domestic and international gold prices is very high.
“Especially, recently, this difference has become larger and larger, showing that the speculative factor, price blowing is more and more present. And in fact, this price push only stimulates some investors to rush in at this stage. At the beginning, when the gold price exceeded 70 million dong/tael, the buying volume gradually decreased, “- Mr. Phuong said.
Sharing more about the risk of inflation causing the demand to buy gold as a “haven” channel to increase again, Mr. Phuong said, this concern is not big.
“The fear of inflation is there, but it is not too severe. Currently, many people worry that inflation will occur because of cost-push, raw material costs, logistics increases… However, tools to control There is a lot of inflation, it may be to withdraw money from the State Bank, or the Government will use a fiscal policy, monetary policy to control and reduce inflation, “Mr. Phuong said.
“In short, the fear of inflation is there, but in fact gold speculators have relied on this inflation factor to push the gold price too far and they are no longer able to push this information up anymore, because forever Investors are also boring”, Mr. Phuong concluded.
Meanwhile, Mr. Pham Luu Hung, Deputy Director of SSI Securities Investment Advisory and Analysis Center also said that there are some investors who do not think about the increase in gold price. When the economic situation is difficult, like when it rains, you have to avoid it and this is normal.
However, according to Mr. Hung, now there are many other ways to avoid risks, so the increase in gold price will not affect much.
“In terms of macro policy, there will be no intervention on gold price at the moment because the influence of gold price on foreign exchange policy is very low,” added Mr. Hung.
