Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Fabricated Gold/Fabrication

Gold that has been manufactured from the initial cast ingot stage into semi-finished or final products. This involves mechanical shaping or investment casting to shape and to size prior to assembly. It includes jewellery, coin, dental, electronics and other industrial uses and includes gold in alloyed form. Fabrication is the major element in the demand for gold, absorbing more than all new mine production each year since 1990 (the balance coming from scrap, central bank sales or investors). An annual report of fabrication demand was made each year from 1969 to 1989 by Consolidated Gold Fields plc and since then by Gold Fields Mineral Services Ltd. The World Gold Council also publishes Gold Demand Trends quarterly.
