What Is "Gold This Week"?
For more than five years (January 1996 - March 2001), "Gold This Week" (our weekly Gold Commentaries) was freely available to all who visited The Privateer website. These commentaries contributed greatly to the reputation of our website, and to the reputation of The Privateer market letter itself.
On March 3, 2001 (March 2 in North America), Gold This Week (GTW), was upgraded, daily updates were included, and the whole was made part of The Privateer market letter. All Privateer subscribers have complete access to GTW at no extra cost as part of their subscription.
The rest of our Gold pages, including the archives of our Gold commentaries up to and including Gold Last Week remain freely accessible to everyone.
Now, here's what you will find on Gold This Week (GTW)

Our Weekly Gold Commentaries
Gold This Week
Our premier Gold commentary. We don't confine ourselves to just the Gold price or the Gold market, we analyse Gold in the context of the entire economic, financial, and (not least) political situation. Includes a daily chart of the Comex spot future Gold price and details on the course of trading and open interest for all futures contracts. This page also includes complete daily price data on spot future Gold (available for download and updated weekly) going back to January 1996 - the start of the current bear market.
The Gold "Bottom" This Week
This is a comparison of the performance of the $US Gold price, the Dow and the trade-weighted US Dollar Index (USDX) from the end of the Gold bottom in early 2002 to date. The relative gains are an eye opener, to say the least.
Australian Gold Stocks This Week
We update the prices of most of the major Aussie Gold stocks and the Australian Gold index (XGD) weekly on this page. We include weekly bar charts with 20-week moving averages and volume covering most of the top Gold stocks on the Australian stock exchange.
