Abstract

We investigate the information shares of the two main centers of gold trading, over a 25 year period, using non-overlapping 4 month windows. We find that neither London nor New York are dominant in terms of price information share, that the dominant market switches from time to time and that these switches do not appear to be very clearly linkable to macro-economic or political events.

Keywords: gold, information share, COMEX, LBMA
