    ECB could buy gold to revive economy

    Declining economic data may "theoretically" leave the door open for the European Central Bank to buy assets including gold and shares

  • German, came as official statistics published on Friday showed inflation of just 0.4pc in the year to October.

    Very low levels of inflation were characterised by Mr Mersch as “abnormally low”, as price growth remained well below the ECB’s target of close to 2pc.

    The official said that while there was scope to buy such assets, the ECB is about to embark on a programme of asset-backed securities purchases.
    “Every purchase of a security - or precious metal or foreign currency - naturally increases the credit risk of the buyer”, he added, noting that the ECB may lack a mandate to increase the risk of its balance sheet.

    Mr Mersch, a Luxembourgian, is often seen as leaning towards the position of the ECB’s German members - hesitant to pursue monetary stimulus in an attempt to revive the eurozone.

  • Declining economic data may "theoretically" leave the door open for the European Central Bank to buy assets including gold and shares.
    Gold, shares, and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) - the European Central Bank (ECB) may turn to buying any or all of these in an attempt to boost inflation in the currency bloc.
    Yves Mersch, a member of the ECB’s executive board, said that the purchase of these assets was “theoretically” an option for the central bank, which earlier this year resolved to “take further unconventional measures to counteract a lengthy period of lower inflation”.

    US Mint - GOLD SOLDOUT

    The announcement has not been made available to the public, but a U.S. Mint spokesman confirmed that it has sent the statement to its authorized participants.

    A sharp break in gold prices to their lowest in more than four years last week has unleashed a surge in demand for silver and gold coins in North America and Europe.

    The U.S. Mint said on Wednesday it has temporarily sold out of its American Eagle silver bullion coins following “tremendous” demand in the past several weeks.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. There are two markets in the precious metals world. Firstly, there is the artificial and manipulated paper market, which is predominately driven by the derivatives market, in which Warren Buffet is quoted as calling “weapons of financial destruction”.

    Secondly, there is the real physical market, which is driven by supply and demand, the fundamental blocks of economics. Unfortunately the tail, (i.e. the paper market), still wags the dog (i.e. the physical market). This of course defies common sense, as it should be the other way around.

    Yes, the artificial paper market has once again suppressed the physical market to extreme lows. Take heart, for the paper market can only determine prices in the short-term, and not the long-term. The fundamentals of supply and demand, always take hold eventually.

    Once again, the manipulators’ price suppression has blown up in their faces, as the paper price drove physical prices lower in which an explosion in demand commenced that all the derivatives in the world couldn’t stop.

    The market correctly sees this price drop in gold and silver as a buying opportunity. The fundamentals for the metals have never been better. The recent announcement of additional QE by the bank of Japan has only strengthened this.

They are in the process of producing more and will advise when additional inventory is available. If you previously received fixed premium pricing from us, it is no longer valid

    A sharp break in gold prices to their lowest in more than four years last week has unleashed a surge in demand for silver and gold coins in North America and Europe.

  • In a statement sent to its biggest U.S. coin wholesalers, the U.S. Mint says it will continue to produce 2014-dated coins. The Mint will advise when additional inventory will become available for sale without providing further details.

    US MINT SELLS OUT OF SILVER EAGLES FOLLOWING “TREMENDOUS” DEMAND

    If GOLD GOES 1.5% UP ABX SHALL BE atleast 5-7%

  • This quote from a recent Financial Times article does give some reason for optimism, however:

    UBS is expected to strike a settlement over alleged trader misbehaviour at its precious metals desks with at least one authority as part of a group deal over forex with multiple regulators this week, two people close to the situation said. … The head of UBS’s gold desk in Zurich, André Flotron, has been on leave since January for reasons unspecified by the lender….

    The FCA fined Barclays £26m in May after an options trader was found to have manipulated the London gold fix.

    Germany’s financial regulator BaFin has launched a formal investigation into the gold market and is probing Deutsche Bank, one of the former members of a tarnished gold fix panel that will soon be replaced by an electronic fixing.

    The latter two banks are involved with the Comex.

    Eventually, the physical gold market could overwhelm the smaller but more closely watched US futures delivery market. Traders are already moving to other markets like Shanghai, which could accelerate that process. You might recall that I wrote about JP Morgan (JPM) exiting the commodities business, which I thought might help bring some normalcy back to the gold futures markets. Unfortunately, other banks moved right in to pick up JPM’s slack.

    Banks can’t suppress gold forever. They need physical gold bullion to continue the scheme, and there’s just not as much gold around as there used to be. Some big sources, like the Fed’s stash and the London Bullion Market, are not available. The GLD inventory is declining.

    Barrick maintains 2014 production guidance

    The company raised its production guidance for copper by 20 to 30 pounds, to 440 to 460 pounds, due to the earlier-than-expected restart of Lumwana mine. Barrick maintained the production guidance of 6.0 to 6.5 million ounces of gold. However, it lowered its AISC guidance for gold to $880 to $920 per ounce, down from $900 to $940 per ounce.

    While Newmont Mining’s (NEM) recent results also beat expectations on account of lower costs, results for Goldcorp (GG) were below consensus due to a miss on production expectations. Gold-backed exchange-traded funds (or ETFs) such as Standard and Poors depositary receipt (or SPDR) Gold Shares (GLD) and ETFs that invest in the above stocks, such as Market Vectors Gold Miners Index (GDX), are also good ways to access gold.
