    Hi Cube

    If so, then why isn't the American dollar a lot higher than it is now, if America has one of the strongest economies in the world.

    The NZ $ would then be only worth A10c.

    Regards

    Apple: Gold's next big buyer?

    Jenny Cosgrave | @jenny_cosgrave

    Apple may soon be a serious buyer of gold, according to estimates of how much yellow metal will be required for the 18-carat luxury version of the hotly anticipated Apple Watch.
    Each gold edition of the Apple Watch could contain two ounces of the precious metal according to estimates—meaning that Apple could use 746 metric tons of gold per year, equating to one-third of the total annual global mine supply, according to bullion dealer GoldCore.

    That's based on estimates that Apple has ordered between five and six million units of smartwatches from its manufacturers.
    "Around one-third of the order will be made up of the mid-range watch, leaving an estimated one-sixth of the order to be
    comprised of the gold edition," said research director of GoldCore, Mark O'Byrne, in a research note on Friday.
    A further half of the order is expected to be for the entry-level "Sports" model.

    The Apple Watch is seen being unveiled on Monday at the tech giant's "Spring Forward" event in San Francisco, before going on sale in April.

    The gold version, called Apple Watch Edition, is expected to retail at between $4,000 and $10,000,
    while the Sports model will likely sell for $349.

    O'Byrne said that if each Apple Watch Edition required two ounces of gold—which is likely if the watch
    has a gold bracelet in place of a strap—it would cost Apple roughly $2,400 per phone to produce.


    According to Apple, each watch case for the Apple Watch Edition is crafted from 18-carat gold
    that is twice as hard as "standard gold." The display is protected by sapphire crystal,
    to which the "exquisitely designed strap provides a striking complement."

    Good morning Muppet, what is your position on this topic? Do you think it has credibility? I would have thought that if these projections were accurate then at least the speculation would have had an effect on the gold price already. Which doesn't appear to have happened as it is relatively low and stable. Then again, perhaps suppliers are delaying buying gold until the last minute due to the high 'holding cost' of the stock. Disclaimer: I am not an expert by anyone's standards, simply trying to take an interest in the subject due to my new career path. Thanks for your time.
