Adam Hamilton is the only one I’ve read who explains this dynamic.
He explains it in a very good article here.
Its much too long winded for my taste but the bottom line is :

The Price of Gold is determined primarily by US Stock market demand for GLD shares.
That’s really all we need to know as a takeaway from this article.

……………………………..

Unfortunately the GLD website only shows the total amount of gold they have at any given time….but not the increase or decrease from the previous report and unfortunately it is not charted

Here is the website http://www.spdrgoldshares.com/usa/historical-data/

…………………………………..

Also the World Gold Council reports Gold ETF inflow and outflows by Region which is interesting Here

Again many thanks to Adam Hamilton for this work and explanation of the Dynamic between GLD and $Gold

Since the GLD holdings are the most important input in determining the worldwide price of Gold .I am putting this post up on the top of the sidebar and will track the GLD holdings and update them Here :

From the GLD site :

Welcome to SPDR Gold Shares

SPDR Gold Shares offer investors an innovative, relatively cost efficient and secure way to access the gold market. SPDR Gold Shares are intended to offer investors a means of participating in the gold bullion market without the necessity of taking physical delivery of gold, and to buy and sell that interest through the trading of a security on a regulated stock exchange. The launch of SPDR Gold Shares was intended to lower many of the barriers, such as access, custody, and transaction costs, that had prevented some investors from investing in gold.

SPDR Gold Shares represent fractional, undivided beneficial ownership interests in the Trust, the sole assets of which are gold bullion, and, from time to time, cash. SPDR Gold Shares are intended to lower a large number of the barriers preventing investors from using gold as an asset allocation and trading tool. These barriers have included the logistics of buying, storing and insuring gold. In addition, certain pension funds and mutual funds do not or cannot hold physical commodities, such as gold, or the derivatives.
