Why are China and Russia still buying bullion?


Recommended Posts

What do Chinese and Russian authorities know about gold that no one else seems to? IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor caught up with Simon Popple from the Brookfield Capital Intelligence report who says that ‘paper’ gold has yet to catch up.

If and when the paper price reflects the demand in bullion, we may be in the sort of pricing that the markets saw in the 1970s.

GOLD, GOLD, GOLD!!!

Russia and China have been collecting lots of physical gold for a long time.

QE ( EXCESSIVE MONEY PRINTING) destroys the purchasing value of money, and could have caused hyperinflation but it did not. This was, i believe, because of the cheap Chinese products imported that kept prices low or lower. And that commodities then were going down in prices, overall until2021 bottom.

However, IT IS NOT THAT WE DID NOT HAVE HYPERINFLATION. WE DID AND STILL DO. This is in the form of BUBBLE MARKETS (BUBBLE EVERYTHING) THAT EXISTS NOW. Once the bubble burst then other dynamics will play out. Inflation does not measure many things.

Basically, the FED, along with most other central banks ( who use the same misguided practice they have been preached )have made a mess of their economy ( not all ) and the purchasing power of the currency value ( in local value). Central banks have failed to recognise the true factors that if consciously known would handle or improve the economy. MANY TIMES THEY HAVE FAILED, AND THEN GIVEN "SOLUTIONS" THAT DID NOT REALLY RESOLVE  THE DANGEROUS CONDITION.

The economy, when it is working, does so BECAUSE OF MARKET FORCES , NOT BECAUSE OF THE CENTRAL BANKERS ACTIONS.

The key focus on a 2% inflation target they have seems arbitrary. In a genuinely expanding economy you will have, naturally, inflation to move the expansion forward.  YOU ALSO, PRIMARILY, NEED TO HAVE INDUSTRY GROWING ORGANICALLY AND INVESTING IN THEIR BUSINESSES, which in our climate has not been there by many companies. Over indebtedness has hampered their ability in any meaningful and constant expansion. 

THERE ARE A LOT OF ARBITUARIES THAT ARE USED, BIG BUZZ WORDS USED IN A GLIB FASHION THEN WHEN THINGS GO WRONG --- WHY IT IS ALL A BIG SUPPRISE.

IT is at times like this that their THEORY SHOULD HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED TO LOCATE INCORRECT OR FLAWED DATA WITHIN IT, AND NOT CARRY ON USING THE FLAWED THEORY. But human behaviour being what it is, PEOPLE CLING ON TO THEIR TREASURED BELIEFS IN THE FACE OF BEING MADE WRONG. THIS IS A SIMILAR PSYCHOLOGICAL BEHAVIOUR AS IN THE SHARE MARKETS  -- MARKET CRASHES BIG TIME, PEOPLE HOLD ON, HOPING AND HOPING, AND THINGING --- NO, IT WILL COME BACK UP, BUY THE DIPS!!

THE ADAGE "GARBAGE IN, GARBAGE OUT APPLIED IN ANY DISCIPLINE. SO WHAT IS THE "GARBAGE" HERE?

NO DEGREE OF STATUS MAKES YOU ANY WISER.

P.S.  on GOLD ARTICLE!

MONEY IS AN EXCHANGE SYSTEM BACKED BY CONFIDENCE. THAT CONFIDENCE USE TO BE BACKED BY GOLD, WHICH KEPT THE PURCHASING VALUE OF THE CURRENCY RELATIVELY STABLE  --- UNLIKE NOW, WHERE WE HAVE OUTLAWED THE THE GOLD STANDARD THANKS TO THE MISS-GUIDED OF ADVICE OF BANKERS. 

CONFIDENCE CANNOT BE BACKED BY ANY PR FOR THAT IS TOTALLY ARBITUARY AND CAN BE UNRELIABLE.

THIS IS WHY RUSSIA AND CHINA HAVE ACCUMULATED GOLD.  THE WESTERN COUNTRIES CENTRAL BANKS AGREED TO GET RID OF THEIRS OR REDUCE THEIR STOCK PILE. BUT THE SILLY THING IS THEY HAVE OFTEN SOLD IT OFF AT THE LOWER PART OF THE GOLD PRICE CYCLE!!!!!

HOW SILLY IS THAT????  AND COSTLY!

    • Hey @pravid17 I hope you're well.  In the leveraged trading industry there are brokers who don't hedge client's exposure and brokers (like ourselves) who do hedge client's exposure.  In a perfect world the exposure of short clients would net off the trades of long clients however this is not always the case. Our hedging model allows us to take an exposure in the underlying market for the remaining exposure which doesn't offset - This way we don't need to hedge every trade, worry about profits of our clients and results in lower costs for hedging in the underlying market (commissions, interest etc.). So say 60% of IG customer exposure in the ASX was long and 40% of exposure on the ASX was short. The 40% would net each other off but there's a remaining 20% of customers who need to be hedged to cover their positions. We go into the market and hedge this.  We make our money primarily through our spreads and overnight funding  with other fees making up a small proportion of our revenue. I would like to remind also that IG is regulated by several bodies globally, including top-tier regulators like the UK's FCA, Germany's BaFIN, Australia's ASIC - This should be quite reassuring from a dealing execution and transparency perspective.  I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other question 
    • A survey from Reviews.org, which featured 1000 Americans, found that as many as 1 in 4 US subscribers may quit the service in the next year.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 23 September 2022  There was an interesting breakdown, but the main reason was affordability. Only 18% said they would move to a cheaper competitor. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the numbers. Netflix subscription woes Netflix Inc (All Sessions) could be in for a rough time ahead over the next 12 months if a new survey is anything to go by, which was conducted in the US. Out of the 1,000 adults that took part in this survey undertaken by Reviews.org, around 25% of those that were covered said that they would be cancelling their Netflix subscription within the next 12 months. Now, it says with that 25% of US subscribers to Netflix considering leaving, not to join a competitor, but mostly because of pressures on household bills. This is how it is split: rising cost of subscriptions - 40% inflation - 20% a lack of content - 22% spending more time on the services of others - 18% So you can see, a minority said they were going to other services, such as those provided by Disney Plus or Amazon Prime. The cost of Netflix has risen dramatically this year as its basic plan increased by 11% in January and its other plans by 20% to 25%. Now these were the first price increases for three years, so that itself is relatively new for a lot of subscribers. Netflix share price Let's take a look at the Netflix share price. You can see on the far left hand side of this chart the COVID lows at $290.39. We saw a whacking great increase there of 141% to the top and the record high in Netflix shares back in November 2021. And that was when subscriptions were rising, people were paying more for their services, and it was all humming beautifully. And then all of a sudden people started questioning the numbers of streaming services they were undertaking with some deciding to withdraw from Netflix. All of a sudden the big drops started coming through with profit warnings and sales warnings. We've recently hit a new low of $162.50. Since then there has been a little bit of an increase. We're currently trading at $232.75, but we are down by a margin of 1.75% in today's session, which reflects this news that we could well see a relatively large drop in subscribers for Netflix in the US within the next 12 months.
    • Market data to trade the week of 26 September: Nasdaq; NXT From the economic calendar next week IG technical analyst, Axel Rudolph, picks up on a short trade on the Nasdaq around US inflation data. Meanwhile, despite another light week of corporate data, Axel picks out the chart of Next plc (NXT) as an interesting trade to think about.
