LAST month, sanctions on Russia upended the oil market, the world’s biggest commodities trade.

Now, Group of Seven (G7) leaders are proposing to repeat the trick with the second-biggest trade, gold. Don’t expect the same reaction.

Between European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen first proposing sanctions on crude in early May and the package being introduced a month later, prices for Brent rose about 14%, on top of the 8.4% rise they’d seen since the invasion of Ukraine began in February.

Gold has had a quieter year, down 3.9% since Russian forces rolled across the Ukrainian border.

Despite Moscow’s status as the third-biggest producer of the yellow metal, the import bans set to be announced at the G7 meeting this week in Germany aren’t likely to reverse that bout of weakness.

Losing its shine

Crude has surged since Russia invaded Ukraine. Gold, not so much.

Partly, that’s just a function of market scale. In a normal year, Russia accounts for about 12% of the world’s crude exports.

Almost every barrel that comes to the surface is used within the year, barring movements in the 90 days or so of reserves that major energy importers hold onto.

Gold, because of its price and density, is far easier to stockpile.

You could easily place enough bullion to buy the one million barrels in a typical oil tanker onto a six-seater dining table. As a result, inventories are vast, with mining adding just 3,500 tonnes a year or so to a 205,000 tonnes stockpile.

Roughly a quarter of gold consumption in a typical year comes from selling or melting down jewellery, coins, bars and industrial metals – and those recycling numbers tend to creep up whenever a shortage of mine supplies puts upward pressure on price.

Russia is unquestionably a major player. The 300 tonnes it produced last year was only exceeded by China and Australia, and accounted for a crude-style 10% of the global total.

What counts for global trade isn’t production, however, but net exports – and on that basis Russia is a minnow.

Mine and yours

For all the scale of Russia’s gold production, its exports are smaller than those of some territories that barely mine the metal.

Its cumulative gold trade surplus over the past 10 years comes to US$60.38bil (RM266bil), a smaller sum than the US$60.65bil (RM267bil) that Japan racked up by selling down its private and public holdings of the metal (the country has just a single operating gold mine, which isn’t likely to contribute significantly to this sum).

Similarly, Hong Kong has been a far bigger net exporter of gold than biggest producer China, thanks to its role as a conduit for foreign capital into the mainland.

    顺便说下牛仔衬衫也不是必须带一点点设计的,颜色比较亮眼的话请慎重考虑,因为真的比较吸睛,除非你和韩庚一样都是很亮眼的小哥哥,否则最好藏起来。比较复古一点的或者多褶的会有人说比较老气,但是其实tony老师觉得这些基本款更容易搭配,也更容易穿好看的。收藏评论,一气呵成
