Gold fever shows selective grip 30/04/02

With gold grazing $312 an oz, a 20 per cent increase on late 2000, bulls are talking about further gains to $325 and then onwards in stages. Sceptics suggest the unscrambling of previous hedge positions has caused only a temporary upturn. But the prospect of US deficits and pressure on the dollar suggest there could be more to it than that. Mining shares, although mostly well up on a 12-month view, remain mixed in the short term. Harmony Gold Mining (HRM) eased to 950.25p after a US share placing at the equivalent of 964p, but Durban Rooderpoort Deep hit a new high of 313.5p. Aim newcomer Peter Hambro Mining floated at 130p, opened at 136p and lost most early gains to close at 137.5p
