The meaning of Swiss' NO vote on the central bank Gold reserve referendum

The gold reserve referendum vote was denied with a majority of 77% unfavorable. There have been much speculation on the impact to Gold price, and it dropped about $10 after the result is out on Monday.

What's the meaning of this NO vote to Gold price? Not much.
It's more of the Swiss population's general preference on monetary policy, instead of the actual view of Gold value.

This event has potential upside for Gold price if it's passed. But itself isn't telling anything about Gold price. And as expected, the vote always has little chance.

The Swiss population do not favor this. It's straight forward thing, 15 years ago the Gold reserve policy was abolished, what has changed and why should it be reverted back to old way? What are the possible impact to economy if this goes through, and the buying act could even cause some catastrophic effect on the economy. There is no reason to fix something for nothing.

So what will happen to Gold price next? It will follow basic principles of Demand and Supply.
The demand is from Jwellery, Industrial, Invest Instrument and Central bank reserve. While supply depends on Mining capacity, Cost, and Gold price itself. Its destiny is not fixed, but the value is still obvious to all.
