Can the Indian-Chinese Gold Frenzy Boost Prices?
China | Gold Trading | India | October 24, 2014

India and China seem to be buying gold “at a rate which probably accounts for close to the full total of global mined supply.” And given that they aren’t the only gold-consuming nations, the “conundrum” of why the gold price is falling remains. Surely that has to end soon.

The BIS Paves the Way for Silver and Gold
Gold Trading | Silver Trading | October 24, 2014

The BIS warned earlier this summer that the world economy is in many respects more vulnerable to a financial crisis than it was in 2007. Debt ratios are now far higher, emerging markets also drawn into the fire over the last 5 years & gold and silver have been hammered. The world as whole has never been more leveraged.

India Gold Demand Surges 450%, Bank of Russia Demand At 15 Year High
Gold Trading | Goldcore | October 22, 2014

Gold imports into India in Sept were worth $3.8 billion, up 449.7% y/y & almost double the $2 billion in Aug as, once again, the Indian middle class used the opportunity of a weakened gold price to increase their holdings. Russia’s central bank added a very large 37.3 tonnes of gold to it’s reserves in Sept – it’s largest purchase in 15 years.

The Fed “IS” the Problem!
US Federal Reserve | October 22, 2014

The solvency of the Fed itself will be questioned during the next crisis, which seems to already have begun. Either the Fed gets the markets calmed down or, the markets will begin to question the Fed’s “all-encompassing power.” When will speculators take them on? Announcement of further QE will probably do the trick.

Copper, Nickel and Zinc Won't Be Cheap for Long
Base Metal Trading | Copper Trading | October 22, 2014

A big driver for nickel is the steel market, and this has been relatively bearish. Nickel ore stockpiles in China and elsewhere are still high, but are now being drawn down toward potentially critical levels. There is a bullish argument that we could see the nickel market slip into deficit by as early as mid-2015.

Taking Your Gold for “The Greater Good”
Gold Trading | October 21, 2014

There can be no doubt that the banks cannot deliver on the amount of gold that they have sold their clients on paper. This situation will hit a wall. Would the US government really turn to a 1933-style gold confiscation again? Probably not. But that doesn’t mean the threat to your gold has diminished. Instead there will be a new scam.

How Much Gold is on Loan Worldwide?
Gold Trading | October 21, 2014

Central banks manipulate gold prices with derivative products in a very opaque way. Central bank accounting for gold is rather peculiar: gold receivables and bullion still in their vaults are treated as a single line item in their balance sheets. This makes it almost impossible for outsiders to ascertain how much of their gold is actually on loan.
