The reason for gold prices plummet is that facing market liquidity drain, investors thus sell off gold for dollars in order to pay margin calls. From our observation, the foreign exchange reserves of global central banks are shrinking rapidly, and a bullish trend of the USDX recently indicates there may be another round of dollar shortage in the market.
Given that many central banks have cut their holdings of US Treasury Bonds and the Fed may reduce quantitative easing scale, it seems that global central banks have few options to acquire dollar liquidity other than selling off gold reserves. As most central banks are currently focused on reviving domestic economy, this only increases their demand for dollar. Central banks in countries such as Sri Lanka, Germany and Tajikistan have begun selling their gold reserves.
