Gold Falls Nearly 3% Following China’s Central Bank Failing To Add To Reserves In May

China’s central bank has stopped its buying spree of gold. The People’s Bank of China has indicated that its bullion holdings are unchanged as of the end of May, signaling the end of what was an 18 month long buying spree of the yellow metal.

The People’s Bank had been aggressively acquiring gold since November 2022, leading to purchases of the metal by other central banks as geopolitical tensions rise.

The price of gold has slumped in response to the news, falling by over $67 per ounce to $2,307, a decline of nearly 3.0%.
