Currently, FastMarkets publishes gold premium assessments for three locations - Shanghai, Mumbai and Istanbul - on a monthly basis.

The assessments are published on the first Tuesday of every month.

The proposal to discontinue these prices stems from internal analysis that deems they no longer serve the market. FastMarkets is seeking feedback on the proposed discontinuation of these prices.

The consultation period for the discontinuation of these three gold premium assessments will end one month from the date of this pricing notice, on Monday August 6, with changes taking place from August 7, when the last gold premium assessments will be published.

To provide feedback on this proposal or if you would like to provide price information by becoming a data submitter to this assessment, please contact Ewa Manthey by email at: Please add the subject heading FAO: Ewa Manthey, re: gold premium assessments.
