Mike Maloney - Debt Collapse & $20,000/oz Gold

Debt Collapse - $20,000 Gold - Mike Maloney On Gold and Silver & Economics .a must see for anyone holding any form on 'currency'! Mike Maloney inspired me to start a Gold & Silver Collection to preserve my wealth! Priceless information Thank you for your awesome wisdom Mike!! Your saving millions of people's financial futures! I bought his book in 2008...bought my first round of PM's after finishing. Since then, I have read it two more times. There is such an incredible amount of information...like many others, I feel indebted to this man for offering his knowledge.I figured that ounces of gold that the US government has to the True Money Supply is $23,734 per ounce.I don't think of the bank balances as money the same as notes and coins because if if the actual reserves aren't there, the bank defaults on withdrawal obligations. What fractional reserve does is increase the velocity of money. It increases the supply of credit and it's really bad.Inflation is not even a problem for people who understands that today's money is WORTHLESS, you DO NOT under ANY circumstance save MONEY, you invest money in value (eg. gold, stocks, real-estate and whatnot). The only money you should have is to cover your cash-flow,

Gold & Silver - The Greatest Wealth Transfer in History

From 1880 to 1914 the world was on the Gold Standard. From 1914-1944 the world had a mix of fixed asset currency countries and fiat countries. From 1944-1971 we had the Bretton Woods System. From 1971 until today we have had the Dollar Standard. We are starting to see some cracks in the current system. Get "Guide to investing in Gold and Silver" by Mike Maloney and read it as fast as possible! Always do your own due diligence but buy whatever physical silver you can afford NOW! You also need a few months supply of canned foods and water. There is so much preperation needed. Times are getting very bad very quickly in my opinion.

Why would anyone want U.S. dollar or Bonds right now.There is NO financial solution, they're only hope is for the FED to print more dollars which is deflation in dollar value & in inflation of all items. What's backing the dollar? NOTHING! There is NO GOLD the FED has admitted. The only thing the U.S. has propping up the dollar is OIL that's why there on a crusade all over the middle east & Africa. This is why there going to invade IRAN at the cost of nuclear war.

Marc Faber : Gold not in a Bubble

Marc Faber : “I don’t hear about gold. I lived through the last gold bubble between 1978 and January 1980. The whole world, whether you were in the Middle East or in Asia or Europe or in America was trading London gold, buying and selling every day,” Marc Faber told Financial Sense Newshour on a Dec. 07 interview “This has not happened yet, and it hasn’t happened. Your friends, the deflationists, have been telling people that gold will collapse to $200 an ounce for the last 10 years and that it was in a bubble. [They] said it [gold] was in a bubble at $500; they said it at $600, and they’re still maintaining it. So a lot of people they don’t own it; they bought it and sold it again. But in the meantime, gold has moved into sold hands.” - in an FSN Interview

Rich Ilczyszyn, chief market strategist and founder, iiTrader gives his outlook for Gold and where he thinks it is headed , "well listen , i think we hit a little bit of resistance today, but i have to say 18, 19, $2,000 an ounce, probably happening next year...listen, these are the levels we are looking at now. if you look at u.s. policy i would guess that in first quarter of next year we may expand our balance sheets again a little bit, weakening the dollar. i think everyone is ready to jump on that trade. i think gold is a good way to hedge yourself."

Invest in GOLD , the only Real Asset

Always remember that whatever is printed on a paper is worth the paper it is printed on , including your cash , Paper is worthless , sure Gold recently is behaving badly and it is down 17 percent from its peak , but it is still up 20 percent this year and that's a lot better than most of the stocks out there DO NOT BUY PAPER or certificates or options or store funds in the banks (aside from immediate living expenses). Only buy gold or silver for delivery in hand and buy a fireproof safe to store it in at home. Banks are already stealing customer deposits/funds (with govt approval) so do not be fooled. Buy the real deal and store it safely at home.

Central banks to raise its purchases of gold to the highest level in 40 years

Central banks to raise its purchases of gold to the highest level in 40 years over concerns for the Eurozone crisis and currency turmoils worldwide :
World Gold Council said that the world's central banks raised their purchases of gold in the third quarter of this year to its highest level in 40 years with the sharp decline in the price of gold during September / September last highs above $ 1,900 an ounce (an ounce). According to the newspaper, the Middle East, the net purchases of gold from central banks during the third quarter of this year, 148.4 tons of gold which exceeded estimates which had been announced earlier and the form of a surprise to some traders. The rejection of the World Gold Council, which issued a quarterly report yesterday identifying the names of central banks, which bought the bulk of these purchases because of the «restrictions of confidentiality» governing trading world gold market, but bankers in London said that some of the central banks of countries that have financial surpluses grabbed the opportunity to decline gold to diversify its investments away from risky assets. The central bank purchases of gold rose to its sales last year, and for the first time in two decades as banks throughout that period, sell more than buy. These purchases have led recently to the price of gold to about 1920.3 dollars an ounce, more than 600 per cent for the price 10 years ago. The last two years have witnessed an increase in central bank purchases of gold by banks to the direction of the yellow metal as a safe haven for cash reserves in light of disorder exchange markets. The amount of gold purchased by central banks during the period from July to September last, which is 148.4 tons, is the largest since 1988 when I was purchasing 180 tonnes. Furthermore, gold settled yesterday after falling 1 percent in the previous meeting in Singapore, as the market remains concerned about the debt crisis of the euro area with the continued political wrangling in the region. The argument broke out between France and Germany on whether the European Central Bank to intervene more forcefully to stop the debt crisis accelerated, while the bond market turbulence extends to the various countries of Europe, raising the concern of investors. A trader in Hong Kong «U.S. dollar is strong and there seems to be a good solution for Europe». The «technical picture looks weak, gold may not exceed $ 1800 soon». Gold rose in the spot market 0.2 per cent to 1765.20 dollars an ounce by 07:13 GMT away from the lowest level in a week's record of $ 1753.39 the day before yesterday (Wednesday).

Andy Hoffman : the physical metals will see all time high prices

Ranting Andy Hoffman talks about Derivatives, the MF Global debacle, silver and gold price outlook and the current events. andy says that he is now 100 percent switched to bullion , the physical metals will see all time high prices , the sovereigns of the world are rushing out of The Dollar . People have lost lot of money in the paper market .... I'm glad there are those that keep telling people to buy and hold precious metals themselves. This tactic has been proven down through the ages as sound policy. But most people will never listen. derivatives are just instruments to gamble upon the real underlining assets, they have no merit on the value of the real assets, bank of america has gambled to the point of 7 trillion in these gambling instruments. so bank of america is bankrupt, just dont invest in bank of america, anyone that has ties to bank of america will obviously be screwed also. doesnt mean the whole market is shit its just a select few of poorly managed companies.

Gold will continue to move higher on Europe Debt Crisis & QE3 - Michael Dudas

The Gold bull run continues today as worries over Europe's debt problems lifted the price. Michael Dudas, Sterne Agee precious metals/mining analyst. gives his outlook for the Gold market "sue, i believe so. technically there's a very good support for gold moving higher. fundamentally i think the market still is concerned about zero interest rates in the united states, negative real interest rates here, and the fact that though the fed did signal maybe a potential in QE3 you're also going to have a sense of the ECB easing given the sovereign debt issues there. a lot of excess liquidity is going to come into the marketplace. i think continue to support gold on a fundamental basis."

Gold & Silver Outlook after the Eurozone Debt Deal

The coin dollar will just be made out of some cheap metal. That news story has nothing do with gold or silver!!! Just imagine if the mint was distributing silver coins... there would not be one of those bags sitting in storage. I give them 3 years max to play on this carousel. The IMF is already talking of increasing the bail out fund for Europe to $5 Trillion & they haven't even spent this weeks money. The German public is screaming that Germany is going to use it's Pension fund as a source of funding for the bail outs. The giant vacuum has started on the FIAT mess, Every country in the world now has to print money, it's a race now. If they don't print then their money is going to me worth too much & hurt their exports. The Race To The Bottom has started!

Chinese Investors attracted to High purity Gold

The Chinese Authorities have released the first national standards on "high pure gold," a move that is likely to boost the country's gold consumption."High pure gold," as it is called in the standards, refers to the gold with purity of 99.999 percent, or "five nines," and is also the highest purity so far Generally speaking, a gold ornament with an amount of metal reaching 99 percent is called "pure gold," and more than 99 percent is called "thousand pure gold." Currently in the Chinese market, the highest purity level of a gold ornament usually reaches 99.99 percent, or "four nines." With the purity of 99.999 percent, the "high pure gold" used to be used in high-tech industry, such as aerospace. It requires a higher quality of the raw material and a more complicated technological craft. There's been no end to Chinese investors' appetite for gold in recent months. And now, an added lure - investors can buy not just 99.9 percent gold, but 99.999 percent - even purer than before. - source CCTV

Gold Prices to Keep Climbing

In trading gold investors need to retain a sense of history. Gold was pegged at $32 an ounce from the end of WWII until 1971 when the US went off the gold standard. It rose to over $600 an ounce in 1980 until falling precipitously to the $200 range where it remained for twenty years. The current price of gold is based in part on fundamentals and weakened economies and in part on fear of a global financial meltdown. If a trader gets caught in a highly leveraged futures position just as EU and US officials solve their debt dilemmas trading gold could be the least profitable trade of a lifetime. In short, watch technical analysis and hedge risk with options is often the best advice. Trading gold on the Comex has entered a new era as gold futures rose over $1,600 an ounce recently. As twin debt crises plague the two largest economies in the world investors are looking for safe havens as a means of hedging investment risk. Trading gold has always been a means of hedge inflation risk and a refuge in times of political crisis, economic chaos, and war. Gold bullion futures are traded on the Comex, one of two branches of the New York Mercantile Exchange, NYMEX. Billions of dollars of precious metals, agricultural commodities, and energy products are handled by the NYMEX.

I think that everybody should have some gold if they want to own some cash because gold is the most honest form of cash people can own" "well, it's (ETFs) a claim on physical gold. i prefer if investors hold physical gold in a safe deposit box ideally outside of the u.s. in various locations, Switzerland, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, Canada. " "I think it's important in today's very uncertain world to diversify not only the various asset classes, in other words equities, bonds, gold, real estate and also the custody of your assets should be in different jurisdiction , I don't trust anyone" - in CNBC 23 Aug 2011

Gold Breaks yet another record today above $1900/oz

Gold is now a whisker away from reaching the psychological threshold of $ 2,000 an ounce. The yellow metal for immediate delivery has, in fact, updated once again its all-time high in the Asian markets reaching the value of $ 1,894.80.Gold could just shoot up to 2000, yet I believe gold will have a pull back before going after 2000. The dollar used to be the safe haven currency. But the dollar has been replaced with gold .I think most people buying gold (physical) after 2008 bought it not as a commodity, but as a store of value. So why should these people suddenly consider to sell it? Maybe paper will be sold off to get physical instead, than the "official" price will drop (maybe even to $100) but you will not be capable to get any gold at all. Even at $5000 I would not sell mine. What should I do with the money, just put it into an account? Buy stocks? I am already loaded with stocks, more than i like...

Bob Chapman : $8000 GOLD : $3000-$3200 by next February

Bob Chapman : well you heard the song up up and away . that's just the way it is going to be , one of the psychological aspects of this and these people are very good at this , JP Morgan Chase came up a couple of days ago and said Gold is going to $2500 by the end of the year , here there are with the largest short position , naked short position in silver and silver usually runs with Gold , what are they up to ? , what they are up to is this : they are trying to set up a barrier at $2500 because they think on the short term before the end of the year it could go higher than that , they are trying to set a psychological new ceiling , it is just common sense and understanding the criminal mind , if you want to find out what they are doing you have to think like a criminal ...that's what they are trying to do here , they are not frightened about gold they know it is going to $8000 , they are just as smart as we are , but they want it to go as slowly and incrementally as possible

Marc Faber : Physical gold in a safe deposit box is the safest

Marc Faber : “The function of paper money is to facilitate the exchange of goods and services, to be a store of value and a unit of account — the U.S. dollar fails on all three,” “Intelligent people, instead of holding cash in U.S. dollars with zero interest rates, why not hold money in gold and silver?” And as a currency, gold should be held in its physical form and not in shares of gold miners or even exchange-traded funds. That would rule out popular vehicles such as SPDR Gold Trust or iShares Gold Trust Be sure to store your gold in banks in Switzerland, London, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia — just not in the U.S., Faber said. “Physical gold in a safe deposit box is the safest,” . “Forget about huge capital gains. I would look at capital preservation. I want to preserve my capital. Faber added - in MarketWatch

Chinese Rush for Gold as Prices Climb

Gold prices are climbing as nervous investors around the world seek a safe way to preserve their wealth. Global gold prices are pushing record highs as investors shun risk.But rising prices aren't deterring Chinese investors--who are buying up large quantities of the precious metal. The trend is likely to continue, as experts say the price of gold will climb higher. Not only for the Chinese gold has always had a timeless appeal. And since the world markets are on shaky legs, the Chinese investors increasingly put their money in gold . Since investors want to avoid the risks of other investments, with gold prices now reaching record levels. Gold has always carried a timeless appeal in China--but even more so as panic grips global markets and Chinese investors seek out the precious metal as a way to preserve their wealth. Despite high prices, demand in China's jewelry stores is high. Customers of the jewelers see gold as a good investment. "Because stock prices fall, and there is no better way to invest, gold for us probably the safest investment." says one Chinese buyer Chinese economists believe that the price will continue to rise, "The monetary system is still in crisis. And in the future it could be worse. So I am assuming that the gold price will rise for a long time. " says Gold expert Liu Shan'en . Some stores are already sold out on gold bars, where the customers are already in the morning lining up before the shops open .With soaring prices, gold jewelry stores in China have become hot spots. In some stores, gold bullion has reportedly sold out--with customers queuing outside before they opened."The currency system has not yet passed its gloomy period and things may go worse in the future. In this case, I personally think that gold price will experience a long-term rise."says Gold expert Liu Shan'en. A gold investor said, "Gold was only 215 yuan a gram a few years ago. Now the price has nearly doubled. I think gold retains value though, and it has been appreciating. It is worth investing." Gold retailers are laughing all the way to the bank. Some are even enjoying sales up 70 percent from a year ago.

China & India account for half the Gold Market

Is Gold is still cheap ? "Gold is lot of things to a lot of different people but I think there is a tendency in the US and the Western world to disparage it as something conspiracy theorists who think the US is a Zionist conspiracy and bury it in the ground with their cans of tuna. But gold is seen differently in Asia to how it is viewed in the rest of the world and you only have to see how much of it there is around," Tony Morri, senior strategist at Nomura says

Peter Schiff : The Bubble is not in Gold , The Bubble is in US Treasuries

Peter Schiff : " The Bubble is not in Gold , The Bubble is in US Treasuries , the number of people buying gold is tiny compared to the number of people who are buying treasuries , but the point is even though so few people are buying gold look at how much the prices are gone up imagine what will happen to the price of gold when all those fools who are rushing into the treasury market because they think it is the safe heaven what's will happen when they will realize that that's not a safe heaven and everybody starts trying to buy Gold , imagine what's going to happen then to the price of gold , because it is gone up the way it is when only a very small fraction of the investment community and of the general public is buying the overwhelming majority are just foolishly buying US treasuries following the blind over the edge of a cliff "

Gold is the ultimate Currency

Gold is money, Silver is more! Paper currency is TEMPORARY but GOLD is FOREVER.The same people that are saying that gold is expensive at $1700 are the same people that were saying that gold was expensive at $400 , these people focus on price and not on value they focus on gold as a commodity a speculative play or bet instead of looking at gold as a Currency , The ultimate Currency . They do not understand gold's value as insurance against the loss of purchasing power and the devaluation of paper currencies worldwide . The Banksters understand this ....the dollars is a fiat currency with no intrinsic value ...

Richard Nixon did the single most injustice to the United States of America. With the stroke of a pen by Nixon on August 25, 1971 has lead up down a path of ruination. 99% of America do not know that the end of the dollar is near. We must prepare ourselves for that inevitable day that the is gone. What is the time line for that day? No one really knows. Prepare now.

Peter Schiff : Gold headed to $10,000/oz

Peter Schiff : I am an unapologetic gold bull , I have been bullish on gold for ten years , and what's happening makes me more bullish because Europe is becoming more like the United States , what's Europe is saying is the nation that share the Euro Currency they will not be allowed to default no matter how much money they borrow the European bank will simply print Euros to pay it off , so they are going to inflate rather than default , they are going to make the Euro almost as weak as the dollar , now I might just have to say instead of going to $5000 may be Gold goes to $10000, Gold is safety it is money ...

Gold Outlook for 2011

Gold the ultimate reserve currency , Gold Price Per Ounce Predictions Over $2,000 by most investment ,analysts. Golds historic high is $2,400 if you adjusted for inflation based of 1980's gold price high. JP Morgan predicts $2,500 ounce, Bank of America Merell Lynch $2,000 ounce in next year. Whats is backing these predictions? Federal reserve - key interest rate low. to continue to 2013, quantitative easing, Trade deficit is now 4.4% or $53.1 Billion, 26.7 Billion with china alone. Chicago Mercantile Exchange raised margin requirements . In some parts of the world gold is viewed as the protector of wealth. In North America, gold is viewed as a speculative investment. Our economists regard a rising gold price as an admission of defeat, and their disparaging attitude toward higher gold prices took on a more desperate tone in 2010. Nevertheless, gold had another remarkable year, up 25% in 2010, its tenth straight annual gain. Meanwhile, over the same 10-year period, five major currencies -- the US and Canadian dollars, the euro, the British pound and the yen -- have lost between 70% and 80% of their value. In reality, gold is not rising; currencies are falling in value, and gold can rise as far as currencies can fall. Nick discusses the three dominant medium-term trends that pushed up gold prices in 2010 (central bank buying; movement away from the US dollar; China) as well as three longer-term, irreversible trends that will put upward pressure on the gold price for years to come (the aging population; outsourcing; peak oil). In addition to these trends, more and more investors will be competing to buy a shrinking gold supply. As safe-haven demand accelerates, there will be a transition from the $200-trillion financial asset market to the $3-trillion aboveground gold bullion market. About half of that $3 trillion is held by central banks as reserves; the remainder is privately held, and not for sale at any price. If the world's pension and hedge funds moved only 5% of their assets into gold, it would trade at over $5,000 per ounce. Nick's conclusion: Without any new financial crises, both mid- and long-term trends indicate that gold -- and silver -- will continue rising through 2011 and well beyond.

Peter Schiff : Silver has the best of both worlds

Peter Schiff : silver is up nine consecutive years I have been riding this bull since 1999 - 2000 , silver is kind the best of both worlds because it is an industrial metal and it is also a precious metal , so if you think the economy is growing you can buy silver and if you are afraid of inflation you can buy silver , it kind of has that element going for it , silver prices are rising for the same reason that oil prices are rising agricultural commodities , paper money is just losing value , it is losing value because central banks are printing too much of it , that's not going to stop

John Embry : Gold headed for $3000/oz

John Embry : Well it could be, because as you go down the path to hyperinflation, it just means that money is being devalued at an ever greater rate. Gold, being real money, is priced in this devalued money. People just don't seem to grasp that it's not gold that's doing anything; it's the value of the money in which it's denominated that's driving the bus. It's going straight down and the price of gold ultimately will go straight up. Now having said all of that, you got to be careful what you wish for, because the societal impact of this could be very, very negative. I would just as soon be wrong, but my job is to analyze things and this is the way I see it. Well, I was bullish in the late 1990's and I was wrong. This is what got me involved with GATA because I started to analyze the situation more closely. When you discovered what the central banks were really doing in this space, leasing their gold and what have you, it all started to become very clear. As I mentioned in my talk yesterday at the conference, I don't think people recognize what weakened position the Western Central banks are in with respect to their gold reserves. As a result, I think, that the swing from supplying gold to the market, where the Western Central banks have been doing this great amounts for 15 years, now with the Eastern Central banks taking gold out of the market, and the Western Central banks being limited in what they can do going forward, this is an enormous change. That alone would have a significant upside impact on the price.

The US could Confiscate the European Gold : Jim Rickards

Jim Rickards : "I tell investors, Gold doesn't ever change value. what this is really telling us is that the dollar is going down. it's the inversion of the dollar. you know, the dollar may go down nominally. all the currencies are going down together against gold and i think that's the significant movement." Jim Rickards, Tangent Capital Partners senior managing director "well, I've been very bullish on the euro. partially because they have 10,000 tons of gold. we have 8,000 tons. they actually have more gold than we do. if you combine Europe, the united states and throw in the IMF for good measure, that's about 70% of all the official gold in the world. who is left out in the cold? the Chinese, Brazilians and the British don't have much gold. as the payroll currencies begin to collapse and you need to go back to a gold backed system which I expect in a matter of years , the people with the Gold , I call the US the Saudi Arabia of the Gold we are a super power in Gold , their Gold (the Europeans ) is in the United States so one of the scenarios ahead is the United States will confiscate European Gold it's what we have done before FDR 1933

Those who live by the Dollar will vanish with the dollar , Buy Gold and Silver Now.

The price of gold for immediate transactions in U.S. currency at a new record above U.S. $ 1670 an ounce, boosted by worries about global growth and the debt crisis of the euro area. The price of spot gold of $ 1670 an ounce, up 0.6 percent during the day by at 08:55 GMT, after hitting a record high of 1672.65 dollars
Not only the movement of investors to buy gold only, but it also included the central banks. for example the Bank of Korea bought 25 tonnes of the precious metal reserves in order to diversify its reserves . The first
time in 13 years that this institution buys gold in Reaction of U.S. debt

It has become difficult to predict how long the range of movement of yellow metal, where he was expected to slow down , but it continued to break record highs several times in less than a week. The total gains of gold during the month of June was 11 percent , traditional factors are no longer sufficient to
understand the movement of gold, where high prices before the date of August 2 is attributed to the ability of the U.S. government to get approval to raise the debt ceiling U.S., but continued high prices,
even after this date make it easy to expect gold at $ 1800 per ounce in the short term , other factors supporting the price of gold, including the threat of the credit rating agencies to downgrade the U.S. credit score to less than AAA, this threat made a lot of investors turn to the yellow metal as a safe haven to secure their wealth and to escape the loss of the weak dollar and government bonds and this also included the threat of the default of some major European countries such as Spain and Italy. The purchases of Gold by the central banks of countries such as Kazakhstan, Thailand and South Korea contributed to the rise in effective demand for yellow metal markets, which pushed the price of an ounce to move beyond the level of 1673 USD , for example, the central
bank of South Korea purchased during the months of June and July nearly 25 tons of gold in an effort of diversification of its reserves and to avoid the risks of inflation in the coming period.

Gold the one and only safe heaven in times like these

" Gold is certainly the most obvious place , when there is any sign of uncertainty , people start to panic " "Gold has a real tangible value and people always flock to gold in times of uncertainty,It is an excellent investment in times like this it has a real value " " David Lowery, equity analyst at Faraday Research told CNBC. "It is an excellent investment in times like this as well because it does have a real value," he added.

The New Gold Fever

Gold panning fine gold how to in light sand and with micro gold Panning and prospecting for gold has become one of the most popular recreational hobbies today. It is possible for many people to actually pay for their gold panning and gold prospecting holidays by selling any of the gold nuggets they find. Many people who pan and prospect for gold are discovering why a simple pan is one of the most effective techniques in discovering and recovering small amounts of gold from a stream bed. Prospecting for gold is very much like being a detective in an old Mickey Spillane novel. When you discover those small flakes in your pan for the 1st time more often then not you will be bitten by the gold prospecting bug and you realize that these small glittering pieces of gold are the only clues leading you to the source of that gold and perhaps a huge mother load

More than 80% of the gold in the Mother Lode is still in the ground.

Gold is most commonly found and or mined in one of two kinds of deposits; Placer and Lode. Placer deposits are areas of free gold that have settled in pockets after being disturbed and moved by many years weather facilitated erosion. Lode is gold found in veins buried deep underground in quartz deposits. Placer gold is mined using panning, sluicing, or dredging. Lode is mined using conventional "deep shaft" hard rock.

1) Hold the pan just under the water and tilt it slightly away from you. Begin to swirl the water from side to side, with a slight forward tossing motion. Take care, but with sufficient force to move the surface and the lighter gravel out over the edge of the pan.
2) Leveling the pan from time to time and shaking it back and forth will cause the light material to come to the surface and the gold to settle to the bottom.
Repeat process 1 and 2 of step B until there is only about two cups of heavier material left in your pan. This material is usually called "black sand," or "concentrate."

A one-ounce gold nugget is more rare to find than a five-carat diamond.
The amount of gold nuggets being found in the world is less than one percent.

Even though gold is rare, it is far easier to find than winning a major lottery.
Because of its rarity, a gold nugget can be worth 2 to 4 times the value of the gold it contains.

China buying Gold hand over fist

The Chinese worried about a possible U.S. default are buying gold and silver hand over fist . The Chinese rush to Gold alarmed by the fear of the U.S. default , Gold is The traditional safe by excellence in times of uncertainty in the currency markets, with the extreme volatility of bank stocks and the fear of sovereign debt defaults (those whose bonds were issued by domestic banks are likely to become toilet paper, what the rating agencies often classify - wrongly - with the name junk) , a true 'gold fever broke among the Chinese investors, with a surge in sales of bullion coins by more than 120% in the first quarter of 2011 on an annual basis. A trend that has pushed up the prices of the yellow metal over the threshold of $ 1,600 an ounce. To drive the demand of the market towards the safe haven par excellence is also the debt crisis of the euro area and the situation far from rosy in the U.S., where the Congress has not yet reached an agreement on raising the debt ceiling with the risk of debt default for the country.
This is why China is focusing on gold. For some time China was a net seller of gold , as well as being a major producer. According to the World Gold Council (WGC), together with India, the country where the demand for gold recorded the strongest growth rates globally. The demand in China is extremely strong, and one of the main factors that drive the market's fears is the rising inflation. Data in hand, in the first three months of 2011 the demand for gold coins and ingots in China amounted to 90.9 tons, an increase of 123% compared to 40.7 tons in the same period last year. In India, sales stood at 85.6 tons. Globally, in 2010 the demand for bullion coins stood under 1,200 tons. According to analysts, the 'gold rush of the Chinese market is a new phenomenon. "Only a few years ago, the Chinese would not have bothered to buy gold bars and coins. But now people will buy them, instead of jewels, as they have a higher value over time . For the Chinese to buy gold is a kind of insurance, they feel they have made a safe investment. Currently, the gold reserves amount to only 1, 6% of the total assets of China, but analysts view it is possible that the Bank of China starts to buy more gold. Especially given the uncertainty related to yields on the US Treasury bonds issued by the Fed, on which China has invested for years because it was believed to be the best way to "park" the money arising from the huge surpluses of their trade balance.

Gold is Money Everything Else is Credit

Robert Ian : Gold is Money Everything Else is Credit , on July 13, 2011 Congressman Ron Paul questions Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke in a U.S. House Financial Services Committee Meeting shortly after reports surfaced that the Federal Reserve was preparing for a third round of quantitative easing.

here is a transcript of the Q&A between Dr Ron Paul and FED chairman Ben Bernanke about Gold being money or not being money :
Paul: “Do you think gold is money?”

Bernanke: “No. It’s a precious metal.”

Paul: “Even if it’s been money for 6,000 years? Somebody reversed that and eliminated that economic law?”

Bernanke: “Well, you know, it’s an asset. Would you say treasury bills are money? I don’t think they’re money either, but they’re a financial asset.”

Paul: “Why do central banks hold it (gold) if it’s not money?”

Bernanke: “Well, it’s a form of reserves.”

Paul: “Why don’t they hold diamonds?”

Bernanke: “Well, it’s tradition. Long-term tradition.”

Paul: “Some people still think it’s money.”
