  1. People’s Bank of China Positive on Gold due to ‘Value Preservation’; Concerned About Euro, Dollar and Paper Currencies

    Gold and silver remain supported by continuing macroeconomic and geopolitical uncertainty. Inflation, the European sovereign debt crisis, conflict in Libya and the wider Middle East and the nuclear disaster in Japan are all factors which will likely result in gold reaching new record nominal highs in all currencies sooner rather than later.

    Gold and silver’s record highs yesterday were barely reported in the non-financial press and media yesterday which is another sign of the lack of animal spirits and popular participation in the bullion markets. One of many strong indications that gold and silver remain far from the speculative bubbles suggested by some.

    The US dollar and Swiss franc are down 1% and 2.5% respectively so far on the week. While sterling and the yen have fallen nearly 2% against gold in the week so far...

  2. U.S. Gold Corp Chairman says Gold may hit $5,000 an ounce in 3-4 years

     The price of gold may hit $5,000 per ounce, nearly three times current levels, in three to four years, as demand from sovereign states, central banks and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) rises, the chairman of two Canadian gold mining companies said.

    The situation in Japan is getting worse, not better. There are shortages in food, fuel and warm dry shelter. To make matters exponentially worse, nuclear power plants there continue to burn out of control and emit high levels of radiation. Japan is a stark reminder of how fast a modern technologically advanced society can be brought to its knees by an unforeseen calamity.

    On the other side of the Pacific, the devastating pictures from that island nation are taking the attention away from our own, much more predictable, calamity coming from a tsunami of debt...

  5. Might the U.S. yet confiscate Citizens gold

    The recent dip in the dollar is frightening as it declines against gold and peer currencies. Where does gold figure in the monetary system now - and might the U.S. again confiscate gold?

    Just take a look at the chart of the U.S. dollar Index and you see a frightening sight. If it sinks any further its support will have evaporated. We have watched all this week the gold price rise and look good in the dollar. But in the euro it has barely moved.   Against the Swiss Franc the dollar looks so weak. With the Technical picture looking so poor, one turns to the fundamentals to see if they conflict or support a downturn for the dollar...
