Even Forex Trading Is Seeing the #Gold Trend

 Source courtesy of +HotForex 

Since the International Monetary Fund (IMF) lowered its estimation for global growth for 2015, the equity markets have seen a sizeable correction. Last week, before the correction in stock indices was reversed, over $3.2 trillion was momentarily wiped out from the value of the global stock market. In addition to this, various worries ranging from the spread of the Ebola virus to the Federal Reserve (Fed) tightening its monetary policy, added to the general feel of the investment world as we’ve known it over the last four to five years, coming, if not to and end, at least close to it. This translated into strength in Gold which is often viewed as a safe haven when global threats arise or when the Fed expands its balance sheet. It is clear from the charts that when things got jittery, money flowed out of the other markets, but not from gold. Instead, gold gained after it touched a long term support level. According to the Financial Times, flows into gold investment funds hit an eight week high in the week to October 15th. At the same time the comments from the St. Louis Fed president Mr. Bullard have left the door open for further expansion of the Fed’s balance sheet. Based on all of the above, it is safe to assume that gold prices will be either sustained above the latest weekly low (support level at 1183) or trend higher over the coming months.

If China, Russia succeed in ditching the dollar…


Alasdair Macleod writes the blog FinanceAndEconomics.Org. His research aims to explain the relationship between the dollar and gold, and to warn investors about the biggest threats to their wealth from macro-economic events.
Besides what the Fed is doing by printing money, there is another big threat to the dollar, said Alasdair. Countries in Asia are banding together in order to rid themselves of using the dollar in international trade.
He also warned that credible allegation of misconduct at the London bullion exchange could accelerate the trend of Shanghai becoming the world’s trading hub for gold.
“There is a thing called the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, an agreement principally between China and Russia, whereby they tie up the whole of Asia as their backyard. Other members are the countries north of Tibet, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and so on. In or soon after September, four new members will join – India, Pakistan, Iran, and Mongolia. That’s almost half the world’s population. The objective of the SCO is basically to settle international trades between these countries without using the dollar. I’m not saying they will necessarily achieve that, but that’s what they want to do. They don’t want to see trade settlements reflected in bank accounts in New York.
“It’s not just members of the SCO, either, that could eschew the dollar. The Middle East, for example, now principally sends exports to China and India, so there’s no pressing reason to use the dollar there.
“You can see that, if they succeed, the whole Asian continent, at some point in the future, will be off the dollar. They’ll use their own currencies, gold, or something else. That’s a very big change, and I don’t think people fully appreciate what that means for the dollar.
“Apart from everything the Fed is doing, there’s an awful lot of dollars held in foreign corporate accounts, principally because they’re required for trade. If the world stopped using the dollar, then those dollars will need to find their way back home.
“What that’s likely to do for the dollar relative to other currencies, I don’t know, but I do think it’s likely to affect the relationship between the dollar and gold.
“While the value of the dollar depends on confidence, gold is different, because gold is accepted everywhere. They might no longer accept dollars in some parts of the world – just like they wouldn’t accept my British Pounds in California – but they’ll accept gold. In Asia, that’s particularly true. People might place a different value on gold depending on the geographic region, but gold is more or less accepted as a form of payment anywhere.”
What do you make of allegations of manipulation within the London Bullion Market?
“It’s an interesting question. The problem with the London Bullion Market is that it’s an over-the-counter market, which means people are free to behave as they like in terms of interacting with the market. That’s not to say people automatically behave dishonestly, but there’s no way to disprove an allegation that someone is behaving dishonestly, and that’s very bad.
“In the 1980s’, during the ‘big bang,’ when they decided to regulate certain types of investments in London, stocks, bonds, futures, and options were all designated as regulated investments. Physical bullion, however, was not considered a regulated investment. You could trade these without regulatory supervision, any way you liked.
“Today, in the LBMA over-the-counter market, nobody knows what’s going on. We have a fix twice a day, which is fairly opaque – you don’t see how it’s carried out. So there is reason to doubt the integrity of the London market, and that’s not good for London. It especially isn’t good for London when other bullion markets have now evolved, such as the physical market in China, which is doing a very large amount of business and is transparent. You can see turnover, and you can see the ten largest traders in each commodity – whether it’s gold, silver, or platinum, for instance. It’s all out there.
“So you can see what goes on in those markets, but you can’t see that in London. It’s even been suggested, based on mathematical analysis of the bullion market, that the London gold fixing process is rigged about 10 to 30 percent of the time. That’s quite an indictment.
“The regulators in London have been told by the politicians to clean up the gold market. I would really be surprised if they don’t institute some major changes. I doubt they’d make it a regulated market, but I can see that they would put pressure on the member banks – which they do regulate. I think they will try to make the London bullion market a lot more transparent. I think the members might scream and kick against it, but there really is no other way.
“If it doesn’t, we’re not going to retain the business that places like China, Dubai, and Singapore want to develop. I’d say that changing the fix is the first step to a long road of reform that London needs to undertake.
“So much gold has already gone from Western vaults to the Far East – China, India – and the Middle East going back to the 1970s’. We probably don’t understand that this is one of the greatest wealth transfers in history. Relative to the amount of fiat currency in circulation, gold is probably as cheap as it was in 2000 or 2001 – incredibly cheap.”

3 Reasons To Invest In Gold (Video)

"The World Considers Gold as Money, and China actually promotes it as money and has cornered the market."
"Gold will be responsible for the biggest wealth transfer (from West to East) in ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY."
-Alasdair Macleod

 "The three biggest reasons to invest in gold" In this 2nd of a series of London interviews that Lars Schall conducted for Matterhorn Asset Management this summer, Lars has a City street conversation with Alasdair Macleod. Together they talked about, inter alia: the challenges for the LBMA; China's appetite for gold; the Shanghai Cooperation Organization as the player in the gold market in the future; and the problems related to Germany's gold at the New York Fed. Alasdair Macleod started his career as a stockbroker in 1970 on the London Stock Exchange, and learned through experience about things as diverse as mining shares and general economics. Within nine years Macleod had risen to become a senior partner at his firm. He subsequently held positions at director level in investment management, fund management and banking. For most of his 40 years in the finance industry, Macleod has been de-mystifying macro-economic events for his investing clients. The accumulation of this experience has convinced him that unsound monetary policies are the most destructive weapons that governments can use against the people. Accordingly, his mission is to educate and inform the public, in layman’s terms, what governments do with money and how to protect themselves from the consequences.

Did A Little Video Digging (Video)

Happy Friday Guys.

I went digging in the YouTube archives and found this GEM.

This interview was done about 4 years ago--and his predictions are about spot on. Jim Rogers and the rest of the world agree that within the next few years gold will be on the rise. It is usually coveted and bought when the world is in turmoil--which it is now.

With US Stocks out performing all other markets, US currency setting itself up for hyperinflation, and precursors to world conflict--These seems like the perfect time now to be in the gold buying market.
