"U.S. economic growth in particular looks buoyant and is likely to drive the dollar even higher, placing downward pressure on gold," said Danny Laidler, head of the ETF Securities' Australia & New Zealand operations.
The firm saw $85.8 million of outflows last week from gold-backed exchange-traded products, reversing the previous four-weeks of inflows as more investors became bearish on the metal's prospects, he said.

"Turmoil in emerging markets, due to the Fed's reduction of tapering, is causing some investors to become risk-off so they are looking to gold which has regained its status as a safe-haven asset," said Danny Laidler, head of Australia & New Zealand operations at ETF Securities.
Laidler said his firm saw global inflows of $44 million into its gold-backed exchange traded products last week - the largest inflows since August last year.

"A lot of our clients are still holding on to gold as a risk-event hedge," said Danny Laidler, head of ETF Securities' Australia and New Zealand business.

"The mood towards gold has definitely changed in recent weeks as the market thinks most of the bad news is priced into gold already," said Danny Laidler, head of ETF Securities' Australia and New Zealand business.
"I wouldn't say people are bullish gold but they are definitely less bearish," said Laidler, adding that outflows from the firm's gold-backed exchange traded fund (ETF) have slowed.
"The fundamentals for buying gold are still there - loose monetary policy, concerns over the Middle East and Europe, and [economic] data from the US and China not being as positive as expected," Laidler said.

Holding on ... Long-term investors are keeping gold as a defensive asset, says Danny Laidler.
Danny Laidler, head of ETF Securities in Australia and New Zealand, says the recent drop in the gold price can be attributed to short-term technical investors who will sell gold when it reaches a certain price.
"Long-term investors, especially those who are investing their own money, are still holding gold as a defensive asset," he says.
As evidence, Laidler says net outflows from its gold exchange-traded products (ETPs) since the start of the year is ­$40 million from total assets under management of $550 million. Net outflow refers to the average amount of money invested and withdrawn from these products.
"This supports our understanding that short-term technical investors have sold out, but long-term investors are still holding gold," he says.
According to Laidler, despite the drop in the gold price the reason why people want to invest in gold ETPs has not changed. "Devalued currencies, US and Japanese quantitative easing and the European Central Bank's recent rate cut mean investors still want to hold gold," he explains.
Another reason why people still think gold is attractive is because its performance is uncorrelated to other asset classes such as equities. "Gold protects portfolios from­ ­market shocks," he says.
