“Gold climbed in London as weaker German investor confidence stoked concern the economic recovery is stalling and as yesterday’s decline in the dollar boosted demand. Silver reached a 2 1/2-year high and palladium gained.

The dollar was 0.3 percent higher against the euro as a report showed German investor confidence fell more than economists forecast to a 19-month low in September. The greenback yesterday dropped 1.6 percent, the biggest decline in almost two months. Gold, which typically moves inversely to the U.S. currency, last week reached a two-month high of $1,262.45 an ounce and is trading 1 percent below a record.” Gold Advances on Weaker German Confidence; Silver Climbs to 30-Month High

However, seeing Russian gold production for the first 7 months of 2010 declined by more than 3% is certainly supportive, but the gold market recently hasn’t been overly interested in supply side developments.
