India Gold Imports Surge - First Half 2017 Higher Than All 2016

- India gold imports in H1, 2017 greater than all of 2016- India imported 521 tonnes of gold in first half of 2017- H1 figure for gold imports $22.2 Bln versus $23 Bln in all '16- Gold demand was up 15% year- on-year in the first quarter- June gold imports climbed to an estimated 75 tonnes from 22.7 tonnes a year ago- Annual total set to surpass 900 tons, strongest year since '12- “I trust gold more than the currencies of countries” - 63% of Indians in Survey Editor: Mark O'Byrne Gold imports into India have surged in the last six months thanks to festivals, economic recovery and concerns over a new tax regime and the push for the cashless society in India. Imports totalled 521 tonnes in the first half of this year, compared to just 510 tonnes in all of 2016. Should buying levels continue then India could end 2017 having imported over 900 tonnes, a level not seen since 2012. These figures are impressive given where the country’s gold demand was at the end of the 2016. The low figure of just 510 tonnes imported in the entire year was mainly thanks to a range of political and economic issues which had a more negative role than anyone foresaw. Many of those issues are now resolved, but some had lingering effects. Some good, some bad. So it is with tentative celebration that we look at this boost in gold demand from the world’s second-largest lover of gold and ask how the country has begun to favour gold once again and if it will continue at pace. 2016: A tough year for gold buyers Last year physical gold demand - for gold coins, gold bars and jewelery - in India hit a seven year low not because of a loss in interest in the precious metal but thanks to a range of political and economic factors. The biggest of these events was of course the sudden announcement by the government to immediately remove all Rs500 and Rs1,000 notes by 30 December. A total of Rs15.44 trillion ($220 billion) – or 86% of the currency in circulation – was abandoned almost overnight. Whilst many internationally and in India itself, especially their many small and medium enterprises, looked on in horror at the impact this had on savers and on the economy, the Governor of the Reserve Bank of India, Urjit Patel’s prediction that the economic recovery would be ‘V’ shaped has come to fruition. The World Gold Council’s June newsletter draws attention to two significant indicators, the Composite PMI and the sale of motorcycles, which have demonstrated this V-recovery. The sale of motorcycles are a good indicator of the health of India’s cash economy. Last year sales halved in one month, to their lowest in six years. The PMI dropped to its lowest level on record. Both have since rebounded. Whilst there are still some controls on cash, new money has been printed and is making its way into circulation. Cash in circulation has increased by 58% in the first half 2017, this will no doubt help the economy past the liquidity squeeze. 2016 wasn’t just about the war-on-cash in India. The gold market was also negatively affected by a prolonged jewellers strike. Sales of gold were crippled across the country as a result. The strike is now over and supply of jewellery to the market has reportedly returned to normal levels. Cashless push, good for gold In the short-term the removal of 86% of the country’s cash was clearly damaging to physical gold demand and there are some lingering effects that will continue to impact the market. The first of these is that as of April 1 2017, all cash transactions over RS200,000 (US$3,000) are banned. This is likely to prove problematic for those in rural areas where access to banking, cheques and electronic payments is not common. We obviously don’t know what the impact of this will be. It may curb gold purchases all together, or we may see a change in gold buying behaviour namely pushing demand onto the black market or buyers spreading their purchases over a period of time. The above is a negative, but something which is only likely to impact in the short-term. If at all, it may not given the ruling came into play in April and purchases have remained strong since then. Ultimately over time buying behaviours will change rather than the desire to hold gold. How do we know this? Aside from India’s gold demand holding strong over hundreds of years a fantastic World Gold Council survey carried out last year found the following results: “I trust gold more than the currencies of countries.”63% of respondents in India agreed with the statement. “Gold makes me feel secure for the long-term.”And 73% of respondents in India agreed with the statement. Whilst the survey was carried out before November 2016, we have little doubt that the sentiments echoed in the WGC’s survey are even stronger given the somewhat underhanded way in which the government went about removing cash from circulation -  and the severe impacts on many ordinary Indian savers and business people. Will strong demand keep going? Whilst the country appears to have recovered from the demonetisation of November-December 2016, there are new factors which will both negatively and positively impact the demand for physical gold. One of these is the new change and simplification of the GST. Last month the government announced an increase of GST on gold products from 1.2% to 3%. It is likely that much of the rush to buy gold in the first half of the year was partly due to concerns over the forthcoming rate hike. Gold dealers were likely looking to stock up on gold, ahead of any planned increases in the price. Therefore we may see a drop in demand now the GST rate has been announced and recently implemented. Or we may not. The change in GST could add some much needed efficiencies to the Indian gold market. Despite the increase in GST, the move was ultimately welcomed by the gold market who had expected a higher hike, to perhaps 5%. As the WGC wrote in last month’s report: GST should eliminate double taxation and improve supply chain efficiencies. It can make the gold industry more transparent which, coupled with recent hallmarking legislation, should ensure gold buyers have confidence in the gold products they buy, rather than continuing to suffer from the gross level of under-carating they have previously endured. This is particularly good news when you consider the inflation-busting wage hike that government employees and pensioners are due this year. This will no doubt support demand for physical gold as will the additional income farmers are currently enjoying following the bumper agricultural crop in 2016, following the best monsoon in three years. Gold demand cannot be calmed in IndiaBoth rural and city incomes are set to climb in the coming months thanks to these factors, so it is unlikely a small increase in tax will put off anyone intending to buy gold. Of course, in the short term it is likely GST will pose challenges for the industry, particularly for small artisan jewellers. But overall the move is likely to put more confidence in the marketplace. Like everything in markets, pictures tell a very different story when you look at the long and short-term factors. Last year, gold demand in India was very weak. Stories circulated about the growing middle-class and their lack of interest in the gold that the older generations have so desired. Long-term, there have always been changing fortunes, changing government policies and factors which will both positively and negatively impact the demand for gold. However, gold demand has always remained strong and India, alongside China, remains the world’s top gold buyers. ConclusionObservers are right to be positive about Indian gold demand in the long-term. Economic growth will likely continue to push demand higher thanks to the groundswell of young Indians set to enter the workplace, growing middle class incomes and the poor performance of the rupee as a store of value. There will inevitably be peaks and troughs and ebbs and flows along the way, but gold will remain a key part of the Indian 'saving DNA'. Therefore India will continue to be a vital and significant source of demand in the global gold market.   News and Commentary Gold books gain for second straight session (MarketWatch.com) Emails show Russian prosecutor offered Trump Jr. information on Clinton (Reuters.com) Gold turns higher as US stocks stage brief drop (FXStreet.com) Gold positive but upside limited as Yellen testimony looms (Investing.com) U.S. Stocks Rebound From Early Shock, Oil Rises (Bloomberg.com) Want to Know What's Really Out of Favor?

“Silver’s Plunge Is Nearing Completion”

“Silver’s Plunge Is Nearing Completion”  - Silver's plunge is nearing completion - Bloomberg analyst- Silver's 10% sharp fall in seconds remains “mystery"- Plunge despite anemic global supply and strong demand- Total silver supply declined in '16 - lowest level since '13- Silver mine production down in '16, first time in 14 years- Total silver supply decreased by 32.6 Mln Ozs in 2016- Supply deficit in 2016- fourth consecutive year (see table)- "Falling knife" caution but opportunity presenting itself Silver has had a torrid time of late with a the "flash crash" seeing a massive $450 million silver futures sell order pushing silver 10% lower in seconds and follow through selling later Friday after the better than expected U.S. jobs number.  The electronic futures silver and gold exchanges continue to 'wag the dog' of the global silver and gold markets ... for now. If one had just looked at the short-term trends of silver at the end of 2016, you would have thought we would be mad to predict that 2017 would be a bearish year. At the time it appeared as though silver was in a new bull market and in the early months of 2017 the price climbed by around 9%. But since April silver has handed back its gains and some and it is now down 3% for the year. This has been counter intuitive to gold and silver investors alike who are looking at an economy filled with macroeconomic, geopolitical and indeed monetary uncertainty and central banks who appear increasingly fallible as the months go on. Some were left wondering how much lower silver could go when last Wednesday it fell through the important $16 level for the first time in 2017. In addition, the silver price weakness was given an extra push two days later when it collapsed by 10% in a matter of seconds. The reasons why this happened are still unknown, if it was a mistake then no-one is owning up to it and if it was a result of a desire to shift off $450 million worth of silver futures in minute then we will never know. But their might be a (silver-powered) light at the end of the tunnel. Some silver market and industry experts are forecasting the silver plunge to be coming to an end. A justified plunge ended by global yields Bloomberg’s Michael Cudmore believes that the plunge in silver was justified ‘Gold and silver have a particularly strong correlation with real rates since the metals provide no yield, and hence demand is inversely related to the opportunity cost of speculation. An environment in which global bond yields are rising in the absence of significant inflationary pressures is about as bad as it gets for speculative precious metals, so the move makes sense.’ But, Cudmore argues, it won’t stay like this forever.  ‘If the rise in global yields persists, then severe spillover effects in other asset markets could prompt a bid for precious metal havens again. So we are approaching the point where both higher yields and lower yields have the potential to boost the asset class.’ New diversified industrial demand But for many investors,  talk of very short term yield hikes are about as handy as a wet finger in the air. Is the picture still as bullish when you look at the basic fundamentals of physical silver demand and silver supply? According to the Silver Institute around 55% of all silver consumed is for industrial use. The remainder is taken up by jewellery, coin, bullion and silverware. As a result of this dual demand, one can understandably get distracted by figures that suggest investment demand is down and therefore the price outlook is bearish. But, on the other side of the demand coin things are not only looking positive but the face of industrial demand for silver is also changing. This is an indicator of a market which is able to be agile in the face of changing times. Something which cannot be said for other markets so involved in technology. Bearish commentators like to refer to the falling in use for silver in the field of photography, once a big source of demand. However, the Silver Institute remind us that this has been the case for many years and is unlikely to be impacting upon demand figures now, ‘Photographic demand fell by just 3 percent in 2016 to 45.2 Moz, representing the lowest percentage decline since 2004, potentially indicating that the bulk of structural change in the photography market is over and that current fabrication volumes may be largely sustainable.’ In the meantime, bears would be wise to remember that there are several other applications for industrial silver and they are growing. In the 2017 silver survey data showed new highs were recorded for silver’s growing use in the photovoltaic (solar energy) and ethylene oxide (essential ingredients in plastics) sectors. These are two major and growing sectors for industrial silver. By way of example, photovoltaic demand climbed by another 34% in 2016, the strongest growth in six years thanks to a 49% increase in demand for solar panels. In all it appears that the physical demand for industrial use silver is still at a strong level. Declining supply? As readers know silver has a dual role: it is a precious metal and an industrial one. This means that when one might expect it to react to monetary events such as a rate hike, it doesn’t because other factors are also at the forefront of traders’ minds. For silver the weak performance of both gold and base metals in the last few months has weighed down on the price, an almost double whammy if you will. In 2016 the total demand for silver decreased marginally to 1.028 billion ounces, but declining supply meant that importantly 2016 was the fourth consecutive year with a supply deficit. Scrap supply has been falling for some time and posted its lowest level since 1996. Meanwhile in 2016 global silver mine production recorded its  first decline since 2002. When added to declining silver scrap supply and a contraction in producer hedging, total silver supply decreased by 32.6 million ounces last year. It does not appear as though the mining figures are set to improve. The Silver Survey 2017 report shows that the total silver mined in 2016 fell by 0.6% to 885.8 million oz. A large proportion of the drop was attributable to the lower output from the lead, zinc and gold sectors. According to the Silver Institute 2017 survey, only 30% of the mined silver comes from mines whose primary metal is silver. 12% comes from primary gold mines and 23% is mined as part of primary copper deposit. Given current gold and copper prices, it is not impossible to imagine further pressure on silver’s supply side given very few new mines will be developed in the current price environment. "Falling knife" caution but buying opportunity presenting itself The commentary space has generally been quiet about the price of silver. Instead, the behaviour of gold in relation to the geopolitical sphere has been the main topic of interest. However, we appear to be close to a bottom in silver. This is in relation to both very positive supply demand fundamentals but also the likelihood of continuing robust investment demand as evidenced in robust silver ETF holdings. In the short term, no one really knows where the price is headed to and silver looks vulnerable to further selling in the very short term. During similar price falls over the years we have warned not  to "catch a falling knife" on many occasions and this was echoed by Cudmore in his Bloomberg piece (on the terminal) as published on Zero Hedge. However, one thing is for sure, silver remains great value given the still very strong fundamentals and when compared to valuations in stock and bond markets.

China, Russia Alliance Deepens Against American Overstretch

China, Russia Alliance Deepens Against American Overstretch  - China and Russia allied on Syria and North Korea- Beijing & Moscow economic & monetary ties deepen- Trump needs Russia in order to maintain balance of power in superpower triumvirate- Sino-Russian relations currently in their “best time in history” says Chinese President ahead of G20- China, Russia call for calm diplomacy on Syria, Korea- China, Russia "fed up with Washington's pursuit of hegemony"- US is "biggest source of global strategic risks" according to China state media- Important calm and diplomacy prevails to prevent nuclear war ‘Trump and Putin meet for the first time and the handshake wasn’t what you expected!’ read the headline on my in-flight entertainment newsfeed, on Friday afternoon. I’m not sure what the Mirror website thought I was expecting the handshake between the US and Russian leader to be like, but by all accounts it was a relatively normal handshake given it was no doubt the most important diplomatic meeting of 2017. The handshake between the US and Russian Presidents was always going to be newsworthy, no matter who was in power but not since the Cold War have the stakes been so high in a meeting between the two leaders. The meeting was scheduled for 30 minutes, but went on for more than 2 hours. Both men continuously praising one another. One of the outcomes of the meeting was an announcement by Trump that the two countries would work together on cybersecurity. This prompted much derision from senior politicians, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said: "It's not the dumbest idea I've ever heard, but it's pretty close." The decision to work with Russia was described as a ‘significant’ accomplishment’ by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. Then, in classic Trump-style, the US president backtracked on the proposal to work with Russia tweeting "The fact that President Putin and I discussed a cybersecurity unit doesn't mean I think it can happen. It can’t.” This move by Trump is not uncommon. He has seemingly flip-flopped since his election campaign on working alongside or against the world’s two other superpowers, Russia and China. When it comes to Russia, Trump’s less-than-slick management of his special White House advisory team has meant that the US President has not got far with Putin. Last week a UN report stated that nationalism, protectionism and attitudes of "my country first" posed threats to the United Nation's global goals. It seems that now more than ever Trump must get relations with the super powers, onto an even keel. Trump is aware that the US has similar issues with Russia and that it must get Putin on side to a degree or at least neutral in order to confront the more powerful China. The US needs to work with President Xi Jinping on globally important matters such as North Korea. But there are elephants in the room which also must be confronted, namely currency manipulation, trade, climate change and deepening tensions in the South China Sea. As James Rickard’s writes, “one power in a three-power game, it is essential to have an alliance with the other power, or at least keep it neutral. The US needs a neutral or friendly Russia before it confronts China.” But, at the beginning of last week observers were asking if Russia and China were perhaps getting too close for the United States’ liking or advantage. Perhaps the calamitous arrival of Trump and his new approach to diplomacy (i.e. tweet it) has opened up an opportunity for both Putin and Xi Jin-ping to push ahead with their alliance. The outcome of which may be a lesson in how the US must stop overreaching when it comes to geopolitics. Sino–Russian relationship: Entente or alliance? Ahead of the G20 meeting last week China’s President Xi Jin-ping met with President Putin in Moscow. This was Xi’s sixth visit to Russia since becoming president, and the third meeting between the two heads of states in the last six months. Neither country has ever referred to the other as an ally, but the meeting was strategic in terms of the Sino–Russian comprehensive relationship, both politically and economically. During the two day meeting, the two countries signed deals which will allow Russia to bypass Western sanctions by China agreeing to fund investments in Russia worth billions of dollars. Both the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), a sovereign wealth fund and VEB, Russia's state development bank are subject to US sanctions. But both have now signed deals with China Development Bank. The deals will will finance infrastructure and development projects as well as a new innovation fund. The purpose of the US and Western sanctions was to cut Russia off from long term financing in the U.S. and EU. These new deals will be set up in Russia and China's own currencies and are a demonstration to the West that Russia cannot be cut off from major trading partners and the global market place and the US no longer has the means or power to do so. It is worth reminding readers at this point of Putin’s comments last year that both "Russia and China need to secure their gold and foreign reserves.” It’s unlikely Putin was speaking out of turn by mentioning China’s monetary policy. Both countries central banks continue to increase their gold reserves and are accumulating large gold in anticipation of currency wars reigniting in the coming months. Concerns about systemic risk and the coming devaluation of the dollar, euro and other major currencies has led to ongoing diversification into gold bullion by large creditor nation central banks such as Russia and China. Influential state media Chinese daily, the Global Times, reported last Monday that China and Russia have decided to deepen their ties because they are "fed up with Washington's pursuit of hegemony." The US and other Western countries are yet to pass comment on these new deals. It is likely that they are each treading carefully, fully aware that they need Russia and China on side when it comes to more pressing matters such as Syria and North Korea. Whilst neither Russia nor China mentioned the US in relation to the two countries’ meetings, nor were they mentioned in joint statements, it was easy enough to connect the dots in terms of where both Putin’s and Xi’s concerns lie. "To strengthen global strategic stability' is a new way of speaking to remind people of the US being the biggest source of global strategic risks," explained the Global Times. "The joint statements (show) both Beijing and Moscow are fed up with Washington's pursuit of hegemony. Beijing and Moscow have confirmed that their relationship is not an alliance, and it is not aimed at a third party. The affirmation is not rhetoric, but their real deliberation. A China-Russia alliance, which will bring a game-changing impact on world order, is not in the interests of either side. They are more willing to develop all-out diplomacy and maintain a normal relationship with the Western world. However, the US efforts to encroach on China and Russia's strategic room has rendered an interdependence between Beijing and Moscow over some core interest issues.” In the name of national sovereignty Russia and China appear to be working together on the basis of preserving national sovereignty. For too long the US has used many means to advance its own goals of so-called democratisation around the world. One example is NGOs, both international and domestic. Even Colin Powell once spoke of the US advancing its own goals in terms of democratising authoritarian regimes and market economics. “I have made it clear to my staff here and to all of our ambassadors around the world that I am serious about making sure we have the best relationship with the NGOs who are such a force multiplier for us, such an important part of our combat team.” More recently the US has been exceptionally vocal about how it will ‘manage’ regimes with which it does not agree. This has seemingly been seen as an overstep too far especially as they have been far-reaching in who to blame for various issues. Nikki Haley is one of the most prominent figures in this aggressive form of US 'diplomacy'. The US ambassador to the United Nations followed a bizarre White House press release about a supposed Syrian gas attack with the following tweet "Any further attacks done to the people of Syria will be blamed on Assad, but also on Russia & Iran who support him killing his own people." Haley has positioned herself as both judge and executioner, not only in regard to Syria but also the more powerful Russia and Iran. So far Haley remains in her position, with little criticism from the White House. Meanwhile, it is clear that both Russia and China are resentful of America’s actions when it comes to Syria. Both are apparently suspicious that the U.S. is attempting to stir up trouble in the hope of eliminating unwanted political leaders. Diplomacy lessons, from Russia and China When Putin and Xi met last week, they expressed their mutual concerns regarding both Syria and North Korea not in a tweet or in a cloud of emotion but in a far more diplomatic fashion. They released joint-statements calling for calm. "The sides emphasize that in matters of chemical weapons in Syria, all parties, with respect to Syrian sovereignty, must support the efforts of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons [OPCW] and relevant UN structures to conduct an independent and comprehensive investigation in order to obtain irrefutable evidence, establish genuine circumstances and draw conclusions that are capable of withstanding the verification by facts and time." Calling for calm heads and diplomacy the statement went on to state that both China and Russia ‘strongly condemn any use of chemical weapons anywhere and by anyone.’ Calm heads is the opposite of Nikki Haley who is about as subtle at diplomacy as Trump is with a blonde Irish reporter invited into the Oval office. Any alliance (whether formal or otherwise) between two countries as powerful as Russia and China, in the Middle East is the last thing the US wants to be fighting against. The call for calm will not only reverberate well throughout countries in the Middle East and North Africa which have been devastated by the ongoing wars in the region. It will also resonated well with European nations which are becoming destablised by the massive exodus of desperate people from destroyed states into the EU, creating a wave of populist backlash. This call for calm and peace has been particularly reflected in the Qatar crisis. Last Monday China’s UN ambassador said the best way for the crisis to be resolved was to employ the radical solution of…letting the four countries sit down, talk diplomatically, negotiate and thereby sort it out themselves. The power of China in the face of nuclear war Both China and Russia are concerned and strongly opposed to the controversial US missile system known as the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) positioned in South Korea, to defend against North Korea. Despite assurances to the contrary, China are concerned the missiles could be trained on China itself. Russia is also concerned about the positioning of the missiles and issued a joint-statement citing “strong opposition against the unilateral installation of anti-missile systems in Europe and Asia-Pacific by some specific countries at the expense of others’ security interests.” When it comes to North Korea, no one is ignoring the real threat that exists. But, both Putin and Xi are calling for restraint on both sides. In the same joint statement, they called for ‘a mutual freeze on Pyongyang’s nuclear program and U.S.-South Korean military manoeuvres in the region.’ The US needs to tread carefully here as China is their only real hope when it comes to settling the North Korea crisis peacefully. China is all too aware of the amount of leverage it has over North Korea and, therefore, America. The People’s Republic of China accounts for over 75% of North Korean exports, this gives it a huge amount of power when it comes to sanctions on the country. Not everyone is convinced that China’s help with North Korea is with the desire to reduce their nuclear power. Adam Mount, a senior fellow at the liberal Center for American Progress expressed concern over China and Russia’s joint approach, “I think we need to be aware of the possibility that China and Russia could take a step back from containing the regime and move towards increased diplomatic recognition, which could someday lead to their recognition of North Korea as a nuclear state.” Will the triumvirate ever exist? At the moment there are three main superpowers. Will they ever exist in a true triumvirate, or is the tussle of power too great and the outcomes desired too different? At the moment it seems they all hold leverage over one another in various ways. But, for the first time in modern history the US isn’t able to bring the most amount of chips to the table. For too long the US has believed that threats and sanctions alone will keep the Russia and China’s ideas of grandeur, in check. But the world has been changing for a while, with Sino-Russian relations taking advantage and preparing accordingly. It seems the arrival of Trump and his erratic and badly managed team has exacerbated pre-existing trends and given Putin and Xi with the opportunity to further advance themselves as two emerging superpowers in a world which is moving from US hegemony to a multi polar world.   News and Commentary Gold prices edge down on steady dollar, firmer stocks (India Times) India imports more gold in H1 than all of 2016 (Mining.com) Another Bullion Flash Crash Is Testing Traders (Bloomberg) Gold Buyers Flee a Month After Their Most Bullish Bet of '17 (Bloomberg) Gold prices down a fifth week in a row; silver drops to lowest in over a year (Marketwatch) Giant Metals Exchange Is Taking on the Gold Elite (Bloomberg) Global Silver Mine Production Drops in 2016 for First Time in 14 Years (Silver Institute) Silver Sinks In Market Mystery (Pound Sterling Live) Where are Slavs on ‘Gold Reserve’ map of Europe (Slavorum) Qatar’s hoard of $340 billion and gold bullion means it’s not worrying about the current boycott (CNBC) Gold Prices (LBMA AM) 10 Jul: USD 1,207.55, GBP 938.63 & EUR 1,060.11 per ounce07 Jul: USD 1,220.40, GBP 944.47 & EUR 1,068.95 per ounce06 Jul: USD 1,224.30, GBP 946.14 & EUR 1,077.51 per ounce05 Jul: USD 1,221.90, GBP 945.87 & EUR 1,078.45 per ounce04 Jul: USD 1,224.25, GBP 947.32 & EUR 1,078.81 per ounce03 Jul: USD 1,235.20, GBP 952.09 & EUR 1,085.00 per ounce30 Jun: USD 1,243.25, GBP 957.43 & EUR 1,090.83 per ounce Silver Prices (LBMA) 10 Jul: USD 15.22, GBP 11.82 & EUR 13.36 per ounce07 Jul: USD 15.84, GBP 12.29 & EUR 13.88 per ounce06 Jul: USD 16.01, GBP 12.36 & EUR 14.09 per ounce05 Jul: USD 15.95, GBP 12.36 & EUR 14.09 per ounce04 Jul: USD 16.15, GBP 12.48 & EUR 14.23 per ounce03 Jul: USD 16.48, GBP 12.72 & EUR 14.49 per ounce30 Jun: USD 16.47, GBP 12.69 & EUR 14.44 per ounce Recent Market Updates - Silver Prices Bounce Higher After Futures Manipulated 7% Lower In Minute- Precious Metals Are “Best Defence” Against Bail-ins In Economic Crisis- Buy Gold Near $1,200 “As Insurance” – UBS Wealth- UK House Prices ‘On Brink’ Of Massive 40% Collapse- Gold Up 8% In First Half 2017; Builds On 8.5% Gain In 2016- Pensions Timebomb In America – “National Crisis” Cometh- London Property Bubble Bursting?

Silver Prices Bounce Higher After Futures Manipulated 7% Lower In Minute

Silver Prices Bounce Higher After Futures Manipulated 7% Lower In Minute  - Silver prices 'flash crash' before rebound- Silver hammered 7% lower in less than minute in Asian trading- Silver fell from $16 to $14.82, before recovering to $15.89- Silver plunge blamed on another 'trading error'- Gold similar 'flash crash' last week and similar recovery- Hallmarks of market manipulation as $450 million worth of silver futures sold in minute- Trading 'errors' always push gold and silver lower. Why never higher?- 'Flash crashes' increasingly frequent in precious metals, yet rarely happen in stocks and bonds- Rapid recovery from frequent raids bodes well for precious metals- Silver coins and bars accumulated on dips by 'stackers' Silver prices got a bit of a jolt this morning  when spot silver had yet another so called 'flash crash' and fell by between 7% and 10% before recovering and bouncing sharply higher to not far below where the attack on the price began. In a repeat of what happened to gold last week, a bout of massive selling hammered silver prices lower momentarily. Having hit an early session high of $16.18/oz, the spot silver price fell from $16 to as $14.82 in less than a minute. The price recovered as quickly as it crashed, rebounding to $15.89/oz. Source: Thomson Reuters via Business Insider This isn’t the first so called 'flash crash' silver has seen in the last month. It fell in tandem with gold’s 1% 'crash' on June 26th, by 1.3%. Prices did not rebound as quickly, silver has declined by nearly 3.7% between then and July 6th. Yesterday silver appeared to be on the road to recovery having climbed 0.5%. Many analysts are calling the flash crash a ‘trading error’ or fat finger.' However, this is somewhat lazy and ignores a few pertinent facts and context. The aggressive selling had all the hallmarks of market manipulation as $450 million worth of silver futures were sold in a minute. An entity appears to have wanted silver lower and the massive sell order achieved that goal. This could be due to a hedge fund or institution having a short position. By manipulating prices lower they can liquidate their short positions at much lower prices, making sizable profits. The profit motive is a powerful one for hedge funds, banks etc and it would be naive in the extreme to discount this possibility. Especially, as regulators and the CFTC have been seen to be very "light touch" in recent years. We think it notable and worthy of further inquiry as to why 'fat finger' trades never appear to be in favour of gold and silver prices and never result in gold and silver prices surging in value. It is also worth noting that such fat finger trades rarely result in massive selling of stocks or bonds that result in sharp declines in a minute or two. Finally, banks have been found to have been manipulating silver markets in recent years and this was proven in the evidence seen in the silver manipulation lawsuit. Deutsche Bank agreed to settle a class action lawsuit filed in July 2014 accusing a consortium of banks of manipulating gold and silver. Among the charges that Deutsche Bank effectively refused to contest were: bid-rigging, and unjust enrichment. price fixing and unlawful restraint price manipulation claims Deutsche Bank agreed to pay $38 million to settle the U.S. litigation over allegations it illegally conspired with other banks to fix silver prices at the expense of investors. Might other institutions and banks not have been doing the same thing overnight in the silver market?      Since 2003, we have believed and written about how the silver and gold markets are manipulated. Even then there was circumstantial evidence to suggest this was the case. Since then, there has emerged much evidence that bullion banks were coordinating the manipulation of gold and silver and suppressing prices as alleged by the Gold Anti Trust Action Commitee (GATA). Physical silver buyers are again taking advantage of this latest artificial price decline and are continuing to accumulate silver coins and bars. Gold and particularly silver stackers accumulate physical silver on an ongoing basis and many use these price declines to acquire silver for the long term at short term discounted prices.

Precious Metals Are "Best Defence" Against Bail-ins In Economic Crisis

Precious Metals Are "Best Defence" Against Bail-ins In Economic Crisis Precious metals are "real assets" and "best defence" against bail-ins and cashless society in the economic crisis which is "on its way" The risks posed to investors and savers from the coming economic crisis and the threat of bank bail-ins, negative interest rates, 'helicopter money,' capital controls and the "cashless society" has been looked at in an excellent and timely article by economist John Adams, writing in the Daily Telegraph. While the article is focused on how these risks threaten Australia and Australian investors and savers, the risks outlined are ones which threaten even those with modest amounts of wealth and all exposed to the western financial system. John Adams writes: "Globally, household, corporate and sovereign debt are at unprecedented levels. They are also linked through a fully integrated global ­financial system and an array of complex financial derivatives. Given the scale of the system, the probability of a global stock, bond and real estate crash, coupled with a wave of corporate, bank and sovereign ­defaults via rising interest rates, ­increases dramatically." "Worryingly, the monetisation of government and corporate debt, nominal or real negative interest rates, “helicopter money” (issuing freshly created money directly to citizens), bank bail-ins, capital controls and the eradication of cash through financial digitisation are all being contemplated by American and other international central bank officials. Such measures seek to, in effect, trap citizens to keep their money in the financial system and to allocate their money into particular asset categories, thus preventing bank runs or hoarding which can occur when confidence in political, economic and ­financial systems collapse." ... "Thus it is up to individuals to think about what they can do to mitigate their own risks. Eliminating all forms of debt, ­improving personal cash flow and maintaining cash reserves to guard against bouts of unemployment or to purchase cheap assets is best under a deflationary scenario. Alternatively, acquiring real (or physical) goods or assets such as precious metals is the best defence to offset any loss of currency purchasing power, noting that the Governor-General has the legal power to confiscate personal gold holdings via Part IV of the Banking Act 1959.

Периодическая система капитализма — Джим Роджерс

В декабре 2007 года миллиардер и "гуру инвестиций" (как его называют в западной прессе) Джим Роджерс продал свой особняк в Нью-Йорке и переехал в Сингапур, утверждая, что наступило время, когда основной инвестиционный потенциал мировой экономики перемещается на азиатские рынки: "Если вы были умны в 1807 году - вы переезжали в Лондон, если вы были умны […]

Роджерс: США, война на Украине и обвал нефти

Фото: Danny Santos II Известный американский инвестор Джим Роджерс, начинавший свою карьеру вместе с Джорджем Соросом, отметил, что одним из главных событий года стала провокация России со стороны США, устроенная на Украине, а также сговор с Саудовской Аравией по обвалу нефти. В своем интервью программе "Финансовая стратегия" на телеканале "Россия-24" Роджерс оценил ключевые события 2014 г.   "Самое яркое в прошедшем году было то, что Америка создала проблемы на Украине и обвинила в этом Россию. И многие поверили американцам. Затем они уговорили Саудитов выбросить на рынок много нефти, чтобы оказать давление на Россию и Иран. Я крайне удивлен, насколько сильно обвалились котировки нефти и насколько серьезно подешевел рубль. Для меня это и стало главным сюрпризом. А еще и то, что Америке это сошло с рук. Америка убедила Саудовскую Аравию выплеснуть нефть на рынок, что усиливало позицию США на переговорах. Так что динамика цен определяется политикой, а не экономической ситуацией. Поскольку я не очень понимаю настроения в Вашингтоне, у меня нет четкого ответа, но можно предположить, что снижение цен завершится через пару месяцев. Американцы вновь начнут переговоры с Россией и Ираном".  Таким образом, в своих комментариях инвестор в очередной раз отметил подрывную роль США в событиях на Украине. В мае 2014 г. он заявил, что именно американские власти спровоцировали переворот на Украине, вступив в открытую геополитическую конфронтацию с Россией.  США совершили переворот, а русские просто ответили Mitsui: США и Саудиты вместе обваливают нефть Заявления Роджерса по поводу сговора США с Саудовской Аравией также созвучны оценке, которую в середине декабря 2014 г. сделал Масами Иидзима, глава Mitsui & Co, одной из крупнейших инвестиционных и торговых компаний Японии.

Джим Роджерс: "Владельцы сбережений во всём мире разоряются, а это ведёт к очень плохим последствиям

Джим Роджерс осуждает растущую неуверенность и безрассудство глобальных органов центрального планирования, так как финансовые рынки входят в область неизведанного:Первый раз за всю историю ведения записей практически все центральные банки печатают деньги и пытаются обесценить свою валюту. Такого никогда не было раньше. К чему это приведёт, я не знаю. Зависит от того, кто делает это раньше и больше, и все это делают по очереди. Когда говорят, что валюта обесценивается, вопрос — по отношению к чему? поскольку все они стремятся к снижению своей стоимости. Это необычный момент в мировой истории.Я владею долларами, не потому что у меня есть какое-то доверие к доллару, и не потому, что это звучит — это глубоко порочные деньги — но я ожидаю дальнейшую валютную сумятицу, дальнейшие финансовые потрясения. В такие периоды люди, неизвестно почему, бегут к доллару США как в безопасную гавань. Вот почему доллар растёт. Вот почему я держу доллары. Надо ли будет держать их через пять, десять лет? Не знаю.Этим, по мнению Роджерса, сильно усложняется задача для инвестора, который ищет приемлемое соотношение риска и вознаграждения, или для вкладчика, который хочет сохранить покупательную способность денег — любые варианты не лишены уязвимости:Я владею золотом, серебром, драгоценными металлами. Я владею всеми товарами, которые обеспечивают лучший способ действий при девальвации валют. Я владею достаточным количеством сельскохозяйственной продукции, в большим, чем объём других активов, по причинам, о которых говорилось ранее — мы говорили о безрисковом или безопасном инвестировании. Даже золото: индийские политики говорят о сильном стремлении к золоту, а Индия — самый крупный покупатель золота в мире. Если индийские политики предпринимают такие действия, золото может продолжить вектор. Так что я держу золото. Я не продаю его. Но во всём есть проблемы.По словам Роджерса, большей опасностью для него является уничтожение «класса вкладчиков», как следствие имеющейся ситуации. Центральные планирующие органы наказывают разумных ради спасения безответственных. Такое случалось в историираньше, и всегда это влекло за собой тяжёлые экономические и социальные последствия, и часто изменяло способ мышления:В течение всей истории — истории любой страны — люди, которые экономят свои деньги и инвестируют в своё будущее — это опора экономики, общества, страны.В Америке многие люди экономили деньги, откладывали их не покупали четыре или пять домов, не имея работы и наличности. Они делали то, что большинство людей считают правильным, и что всегда в истории считалось правильным. Но теперь, к сожалению, эти люди разоряются, потому что они получают 0% дохода, или почти никакого дохода, со своих сбережений и инвестиций. Мы разоряем их в пользу людей, погрязших в долгах, поступавших, по общему мнению, неправильно, в ущерб людям, поступавшим правильно. Это будет иметь ужасные долгосрочные последствия для любой страны, общества и экономики.Если обратиться к истории, можно видеть, что случилось в Германии, когда в 1920-х был разорён класс людей, откладывавших сбережения. В дальнейшем это не довело до добра. Это не довело до добра и в Италии, где происходило то же самое. Было много стран, где разорялись люди, откладывавшие сбережения на будущее. Как правило, возникает серьёзная политическая реакция, в некоторых случаях отчаяние, поиск Спасителя и простых ответов — вот что происходит, когда уничтожают людей, делающих сбережения и инвестирующих в будущее.Ссылка

Экономические эксперты предсказывают мировую войну

Источник перевод для mixednews – molten18.11.2012Кайл Басс, Ларри Эдельсон, Чарльз Неннер, Джим Роджерс и Марк Фабер предсказывают масштабную войну:Пишет Кайл Басс:Триллионы долларов долгов будет реструктуризировано и миллионы финансово дисциплинированных вкладчиков потеряют большую часть своей покупательской способности в самый неподходящий период их жизни. Мир конечно не закончится, но социальная ткань расточительных стран растянется, и в некоторых случаях будет разорвана. К сожалению, оглядываясь на экономическую историю, слишком часто война становится простым проявлением дошедшей до своего логического завершения  экономической энтропии. Мы считаем, что война является неизбежным следствием нынешней глобальной экономической ситуации.Ларри Эдельсон написал подписчикам письмо под названием, «Что «Циклы войны» говорят о 2013 -м», где говорится:С 80-х я изучаю так называемые «циклы войны» – естественные ритмы, которые предрасполагают для обществ скатывание в хаос, ненависть и гражданские или даже международные войны.Я, конечно, не первый, кто изучает эти своеобразные закономерности в истории. Были многие и до меня, и самый известный среди них, это Реймонд Вилер, который опубликовал наиболее заслуживающую внимания хронику войн, охватив данные за период в 2600 лет.Однако мало кто готов сейчас даже просто обсуждать этот вопрос. И основываясь на том, что я вижу, последствия в 2013-м могут быть просто огромны. Бывший технический аналитик Goldman Sachs Чарльз Неннер, который сделал некоторые крупные и точные прогнозы, говорит, что «крупная война начнётся в конце 2012-го, в 2013-м», и приведёт к падению индекса Доу до пяти тысяч пунктов.Почему эти экономические гуру прогнозируют войну?С одной стороны, многие влиятельные люди ошибочно полагают, что война является благом для экономики.Кроме того, Джим Роджерс говорит:Если всё обернётся торговой войной, это наиболее важная вещь 2011 года», говорит Роджерс. «Торговые войны всегда ведут к войнам. Никто не выигрывает в торговых войнах, кроме генералов, которые сражаются в физических войнах, когда они случаются. Это очень опасно». Также Роджерс сказал, что продолжение спасательных мер в Европе в итоге может разжечь новую мировую войну.«Добавьте долгов, ситуация становится ещё хуже, и в итоге всё просто обваливается. И тогда все начинают искать козлов отпущения. Политики обвиняют иностранцев, и вот мы уже во Второй мировой или какой-нибудь ещё мировой войне».А Марк Фабер говорит, что американское правительство начнёт новые войны в ответ на экономический кризис:«Следующим, что правительство сделает, чтобы отвлечь внимание людей от плохой экономической ситуации, это начнёт где-нибудь войну».«Если мировая экономика не восстанавливается, как правило, люди отправляются на войну».Фабер также считает, что США, Китай и Россия могут начать войну из-за ближневосточной нефти.Ссылка

Роджерс: конкурентные преимущества России

То, что Россия не будет ставить ограничений на ввод и вывод капитала, является важнейшим конкретным преимуществом, сказал Джим Роджерс на круглом столе "Россия в АТЭС: курс на равноценное партнерство". "Я поражен, удивлен, и мне было очень приятно это услышать. Бразилия идет совсем другим путем, и в Индии это также невозможно. В большинстве стран мира это невозможно. И это, конечно, дает преимущество России. И если действительно он [президент Путин] серьезно это говорил, для меня это очень важно как для внешнего игрока. Я очень внимательно отношусь к таким заявлениям", - подчеркнул Роджерс. "Во многих странах невозможно иностранцам покупать, например, сельхозугодия. А в России он [президент] сказал, любой может покупать сельхозугодия. Это невозможно ни в Индии, ни в Бразилии, ни в Канаде, ни в США. И это очень интересно, конечно", - отметил Роджерс. Ссылки по теме Правительство РФ готово продавать землю Роджерс: агропром - самая перспективная отрасль РФ В июле председатель правительства поднял вопрос приватизации земель. "Я думаю, что нам нужно все-таки готовиться к приватизации и земельных участков тоже", - заявил Медведев на совещании с главами рабочих групп предпринимательской инициативы."Мы в течение многих лет говорили, что земля - это наша высшая ценность, что мы ее не можем распродавать, что это богатство будущих поколений. Ну и что в результате мы имеем? Мы часто имеем просто деградацию земельного фонда и отсутствие реальных возможностей для строительства жилья, социальной инфраструктуры и решения насущных проблем, которые стоят перед гражданами", - сказал премьер-министр.Премьер отметил, что даже в Московской области, где "земля самая золотая", есть много неиспользуемых земель.

Джим Роджерс: впервые в своей жизни я подумываю инвестировать в Россию

Источник перевод для mixednews – moltenПосле 18 долгих лет переговоров Россия наконец-то присоединилась к Всемирной торговой организации, тем самым ознаменовав существенный шаг вперед в продолжении усилий страны наращивать своё присутствие в международных делах и на мировой экономической сцене. Россия стала 156 членом ВТО, а кого-то может даже удивить то, что это последняя страна G20, которая до недавнего времени не была в ВТО. Эти примечательные события происходят в то время, когда соседние страны-члены еврозоны тонут в долгах, и когда перспективы роста остаются туманными и неопределёнными, что в целом представляет охотникам до рисков возможности для прибыли и новые горизонты в долгосрочном инвестировании.Несмотря на нахождение в блоке БРИК, Россия некоторое время оставалась вне радаров инвесторов, однако теперь, учитывая её географическую близость и тангенциальное воздействие на валютный блок, можно сказать, что неопределённость в отношении экономических перспектив России была, скорее всего, преувеличена.Вступление страны в ВТО несомненно привлекло к себе внимание инвесторов, которые зачастую упускали её из вида, глядя на развивающиеся рынки. Комиссар по торговле Европейского союза Карел Де Гюхт прокомментировал недавнее вступление России в ВТО, заявив, «Вступление России в ВТО будет способствовать инвестициям и торговле, поможет ускорить модернизацию экономики России и предлагает множество возможностей для бизнеса как для русских, так и для европейских компаний».Роджерс смотрит в сторону РоссииСогласно выкладкам Всемирного банка, вступление России в ВТО за счёт улучшения доступа к рынку в долгосрочной перспективе добавит около $162 миллиардов ежегодно к объёму производства. Хотя в стране по-прежнему царит безудержная коррупция и она страдает от неэффективности в сравнении с развивающимися рынками, этот недавний шаг к либерализации торговли распахнул ворота для иностранных инвесторов, что вдохновило легендарного инвестора Джима Роджерса сменить своё обычное направление.Ветеран Уолл-стрит Джим Роджерс, возможно, более всего известный своими успехами на рынке сырья, с момента распада Советского союза был скептически настроен в отношении России. Однако недавно, появившись на CNBC, он заявил, «Я начинаю, к моему собственному удивлению, более благосклонно смотреть на Россию. Я туда ещё не инвестирую, но впервые в жизни начинаю об этом подумывать». Будучи одним из крупнейших мировых экспортёров энергии, её экономика имеет огромный потенциал, особенно сейчас, когда российские компании будут иметь возможность привлекать больше капитала и более активно конкурировать на мировом рынке. Недавнее принятие страны в ВТО и обещания Путина удерживать экономический рост на уровне 6 процентов, несомненно, заставят обратить на неё внимание инвесторов, в числе которых и сам инвестиционный гуру Джим Роджерс.  Ссылка

Джим Роджерс о надвигающейся бюджетной катастрофе

Источник перевод для mixednews – moltenИзвестный инвестор Джим Роджерс по-прежнему обеспокоен. По мере того, как США приближаются к своему очередному долговому потолку, председатель Rogers Holdings откровенничает о последствиях растущего долга страны.The Fiscal Times (TFT): Вы говорите, что мы приближаемся к финансовому «Армагеддону». Неужели всё так мрачно?Джим Роджерс (ДР): США – страна – самый большой должник в истории мира. Наши долги каждый день продолжают нарастать, и никто ничего с этим не делает. Каждая страна в истории, оказавшаяся в такой ситуации, переживала кризис. В 2002 году произошёл экономический спад, который был довольно серьёзным, а затем в 2007 и 2008 годах у нас был еще один, который был ещё хуже, потому что долг стал намного больше. Следующий раз должен стать катастрофическим.TFT: Мы продолжаем слышать призывы к следующему раунду валютного стимулирования со стороны ФРС. Вам это не кажется хорошей идеей?ДР: Это абсурдная идея. Печатание денег никогда ничьих проблем не решало. Возможно, в краткосрочной перспективе, печатание и облегчит ситуацию, но все кто знаком с историей, знают, что в долгосрочной перспективе печатание денег не срабатывает. Может быть, на этот раз всё по-другому, но я в этом сомневаюсь.TFT: Как насчет Китая? Вы по-прежнему оптимистичны в отношении него?ДР: Я несколько удивлён в отношении того, что говорят о Китае. Он уже 3 года публично объявляет о том, что пытается замедлить свою экономику. Они объявляют об этом почти каждый квартал или месяц, что пытаются замедлиться, так что все, кто указывает пальцем на его замедление, просто не понимают, откуда оно происходит. Китай замедляется искусственно, это происходит намеренно. В некоторых сферах наблюдаются некоторые проблемы, например, в сфере недвижимости. Однако отчасти всё это замедление умышленно, и делается оно надлежащим образом.TFT: Вы говорите, что в нашей сельскохозяйственной промышленности существуют глубокие структурные проблемы, и что у США может образоваться нехватка фермеров. Будут ли у нас проблемы с производством сельскохозяйственных культур из-за погодных напастей, которыми мы стали свидетелями в этом году?ДР: Почти каждый год в мире приключаются те или иные погодные проблемы, так было с начала времён. Проблема в том, что теперь из-за ряда факторов восстанавливаться будет всё труднее. Во-первых, последнее десятилетие мы почти каждый год потребляем больше, чем производим, поэтому запасы находятся на низком уровне. Но ещё более важно то, что у нас кончаются фермеры. Средний возраст фермера в Америке – 58 лет. Больше людей изучает связи с общественностью, чем сельское хозяйство. У нас нет притока людей в сельскохозяйственную промышленность. Нам нужно что-то делать, чтобы привлечь на землю людей. Сейчас многое стало автоматизированным, но кто-то по-прежнему должен запачкать руки.TFT: Как вы оцениваете рынок? Вы всё ещё бычьи настроены по отношении сырья в долгосрочной перспективе?ДР: Да. На мой взгляд, если экономика улучшится, то на сырье можно будет заработать из-за его нехватки, которая только нарастает. А если не улучшится, то деньги будут продолжать печатать. Это всё, что они умеют. Они не очень умные люди, поэтому будут продолжать печатать, а в таких условиях исторически сложилось, что для того, чтобы себя обезопасить, нужно владеть реальными активами.Ссылка
