Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez ordered his government to repatriate $11 billion in gold held in banks abroad

Aug 18, 2011"We've held 99 tons of gold at theBank of Englandsince 1980. I agree with bringing that home," Chavez said today on state television. "It's a healthy decision."Chavez, who has said he wants to eliminate the "dictatorship" of theU.S. dollar, has called on Venezuela's central bank to diversify its $28.7 billion in reserves away from U.S. institutions. Some cash reserves, which total $6.3 billion, will be shifted into currencies from emerging markets includingChina, Russia, Brazil and India, central bank President Nelson Merentes said today at a news conference.'Brutal Place' Earlier today Chavez said he plans to take control of the country's gold industry to halt illegal mining and boost reserves.

Saudi Arabia doubles its Gold Reserve

22 Jun 2010 The World Gold Council in its June 2010 update of World Official Gold Holdings increased the gold reserves held by the Saudi Arabian central bank to 322.9 tons (10.38 million ounces). This is more than double the previously reported 143 tons of reserves.

In a footnote to this report, the WGC states "Gold data have been modified from First Quarter 2008 as a result of the adjustment of the SAMA's gold accounts." It is possible that the total amount of gold held by the Saudi Arabian government has not really changed, but has merely been reclassified from other accounts. However, initial attempts to gain further information on this point were not immediately successful.With the new reported gold reserves, Saudi Arabia's central bank now ranks 16th, ahead of the United Kingdom, Spain, Austria, Belgium, Singapore, and Sweden. Only 13 other national central banks, the International Monetary Fund, and the European Central Bank have higher reported reserves.

13 US states propose and one passess the bill to legalize state issued gold and silver as legal tender

Utah , a state in the USA Passes Bill Recognizing Gold, Silver as Legal Tender

Utah took its first step Friday toward bringing back the gold standard when the state House passed a bill that would recognize gold and silver coins issued by the federal government as legal currency.
The House voted 47-26 in favor of the legislation that would also exempt the sale of gold from the state capital gains tax and calls for a committee to study alternative currencies for the state.
The legislation now heads to the state Senate, where a vote is expected next week.
Under the bill, the coins would not replace the current paper currency but would be used and accepted voluntarily as an alternative.


If the bill passes, Utah would become the first of 13 states that have proposed similar measures. The others states are Colorado, Georgia, Montana, Missouri, Indiana, Iowa, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont and Washington. 

Critics of the gold standard say it limits countries' co…

Gold, Silver Appear Set to Shine in '12

DECEMBER 19, 2011, 3:37 P.M. ET It's been a somewhat turbulent year for precious metals in 2011, but analysts are predicting that gold and silver prices will make solid gains in 2012 as both move back into favor with investors as alternative stores of value. Market participants, such as U.S. investment bank Morgan Stanley, now cite gold as their top commodity play for 2012, due to the uncertain macroeconomic environment. Many analysts predict the muddied global economic outlook will boost gold prices to all-time highs next year, with a break above $2,000 an ounce for the first time widely expected. Demand for safe assets will re-emerge on concerns over the health of the euro-zone and U.S. economies, they predict, while threats to major currencies like the dollar and the euro, from potential new quantitative-easing measures and the euro-zone debt crisis, will also push investors toward gold. The prospect of another year of low or negative real interest rates in developed countries, …

Lets join the movement of transferring wealth back to the people from where it came.

From The guardian www.guardian.co.uk Thursday 2 December 2010 12.30 GMT For decades, the world's banking system has been on a fiat currency standard that has led to banks that are "too big to fail". They have overreached their remit of providing loans and have leeched into the political system, using our money to change the political agenda in ways that boost bank management's compensation over the interests of their depositors. Over the past 11 years, the Gata (Gold Anti-Trust Action) committeehas worked to revealthe silver/gold price suppression scheme; thanks to whistleblower Andrew Maguire in London, an investigation has been opened. As part of the ongoingexposé, it has nowbecome clearthat JP Morgan is sitting on what is estimated to be 3.3bn ounce "short" position in silver (which they have sold short, meaning they don't own it to begin with) in an attempt to keep the price artificially low in order to keep the relative appeal of the dollar and other

Gold hits highest quarterly sale in 2010, 2011. India China leading consumers. China get gold ATMs. United States, Germany, Italy and the United Arab Emirates already have them.

The world too is seeking more monetary security in gold, buying 919.8 tonnes of the shiny metal worth $44.5 billion in the second quarter of 2011. It was the second-highest ever quarterly value recorded, says the latest World Gold Council's Gold Demand Trends (GDT) report released in August. It was fractionally below a record $44.7 billion in the last quarter of 2010

On September 25, China joined the United States, Germany, Italy and the United Arab Emirates, in having ATMs that dispense bullion and gold coins. In Beijing's 800-year old Wangfujing shopping district, buyers can now use bank cards and cash to induce the machine to pop out certified gold.

A scanner attached to the ATM recognizes the two-dimensional bar code in each gold bar or coin dispensed. The scarlet and yellow ATM with a touch screen dispenses gold bars and coins of various weights. Prices are based on current market rates and updated every 10 minutes.

Each withdrawal at the Wangfujing ATM is capped at 2.5 kil…

Which way will gold go now?

Gold will remain rising in the long term. In the very short perspective, we can wait to buy gold till it rises above  $1650. After crossig that level, it is expected to reach $1900 soon. To view the price viist:  www.goldprice.org In Indian rupees wait to buy gold till it rises above  30000 per 10 gram. After crossig that level, it is expected to reach 32000 soon.

 Since there is no major currency in the world now to trust, Gold and silver are the only safe investments so it is bound to keep rising. For factors which are causing the rise, see my previous posts by clicking the gold and silver label in the menu.

The telegraph: Return of the Gold Standard as world order unravels

On one side of the Atlantic, the eurozone debt crisis has spread to the countries that may be too big to save - Spain and Italy - though RBS thinks a €3.5 trillion rescue fund would ensure survival of Europe's currency union. On the other side, the recovery has sputtered out and the printing presses are being oiled again. China, Russia, Brazil, India, the Mid-East petro-powers have diversified their $7 trillion reserves into euros over the last decade to limit dollar exposure. As Europe's monetary union itself faces an existential crisis, there is no other safe-haven currency able to absorb the flows. "It is very scary: the flight to gold is accelerating at a faster and faster speed," said Peter Hambro, chairman of Britain's biggest pure gold listing Petropavlovsk. "One of the big US banks texted me today to say that if QE3 actually happens, we could see gold at $5,000 and silver at $1,000. I feel terribly sorry for anybody on fixed incomes tied to a fiat cu…

Richard Maybury : 'Gold to hit $3,000, silver $50 by March 2013'

A war-mongering U.S. government could be less than 18 months away from decimating the last 5% of value left in the dollar, says Richard Maybury, the author of the U.S. & World Early Warning Report. Until some new exchange-traded-fund-like basket of natural resources provides a store of value, this "juris naturalist" has some advice about how to protect your wealth during the coming collapse. The Gold Report: Richard, last month, you made a presentation at the Casey Research/Sprott Inc. "When Money Dies" Summit entitled "The War that Will Kill the Dollar." You explained that the corrupting influence of power had sent our country's leaders shopping for war, disregarding Westphalian respect for sovereignty and hastening the collapse of society. What are the signs that we are reaching a critical point? And, is there any way we can change course? Richard Maybury: You can see the signs very clearly in the Middle East and North Africa. The Federal govern…

The quantity of gold held and traded by the world's banks, and futures exchanges is significantly overstated !

The Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA) is an organization dedicated to investigating and proving its allegation that the quantity of gold held and traded by the world's central banks, international bullion banks and futures exchanges is significantly overstated and that a scheme analogous to the defunct London Gold Pool keeps the price of gold artificially low.From:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_Anti-Trust_Action_Committee
For years there have been whispers that you may have heard about possible government manipulation of the gold market. No one has ever been able to conclusively prove the allegations that central banks, the Federal Reserve, the London Bullion Association, and the so called giant bullion banks all collude together to keep the price of gold artificially low.From: http://www.wealthbuildingcourse.com/gold-antitrust-action-committee.html

Silver has even More Upside Potential Than Gold

The following information was obtained from several sources believed to be reliable (for just one, see http://www.butlerresearch.com/, Ted Butler's website) and I think the key observation in this information about the surging deficit in the supply of silver versus demand is the relative magnitudes of the numbers, not their exactitudes. I for one have always had a subconscious prejudice for gold investments over silver, primarily for its major role over history as a monetary vehicle, but also for no other reason than the sheer bulkiness of even a modest silver investment. One-Thousand Ounce Silver Bars weigh about 70 pounds, and with a 52 year-old back, I don't relish slinging any from one hiding place to another. But this is myopic reasoning, because there is compelling evidence that we could see $50 silver at some point not too far down the road, and a 10 times multiplier on gold takes one to $2,750 per ounce, an even more difficult level to imagine. Frankly, I am very bulli…

Rupee can fall more

The Indian rupee tumbled to an all-time low against the dollar Tuesday as jitters about the economy were compounded by fear that the central bank's largely hands-off approach to the currency leaves it more room to fall.

The currency has been Asia's worst performer against the dollar this year, down more than 17%.









The rupee has been plagued by a combination of a lower risk appetite among global investors, spooked by the European debt crisis, and pessimism about the Indian economy. Growth expectations for the year ending March 31 are now at around 7% to 7.5%, compared with earlier government targets of 9% to 9.5%. And India continues to suffer from an inflation rate of around 10%, despite a 20-month campaign of interest-rate increases by the central bank.
With foreign investors staying away, the flow of dollars into the country has dried up in recent months. Foreign institutions have put a net $4.48 billion into Indian bonds and stocks this year, compared with $39.06 billion over t…

S&P Warns on 15 Euro-Zone Nations

S&P put the long-term sovereign-debt ratings of 15 euro-zone nations, including struggling Italy and Spain, on negative watch. That typically means there is at least a 50% chance of a downgrade within 90 days, but the firm said Monday that it expected to announce any rating changes "as soon as possible" following this week's European Union summit, where policy makers are expected to lay out plans to enforce stricter budget rules.An S&P spokesman confirmed that Monday's move was the most countries the firm has put on credit-watch negative at one time.S&P said the long-term ratings on Germany, Belgium, Austria, Finland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands aren't likely to fall by more than one notch, if at all. But it flagged a potential two-notch downgrade for France and other euro-zone nations.S&P appears to view the summit as a "make or break" event for the euro zone, said Kathy Jones, a strategist for Charles Schwab & Co.

Euro-Area Inflation Steady; Unemployment Hits 13-Year High November 30, 2011, 10:40 PM EST

Nov. 30 (Bloomberg) -- European inflation remained at a three-year high and unemployment increased to the highest in more than 13 years, undermining an economy already hit by a worsening fiscal crisis. The inflation rate in the 17-nation euro area held at 3 percent in November, the European Union's statistics office in Luxembourg said in an initial estimate today. The region's unemployment rate rose to 10.3 percent in October from 10.2 percent in the previous month, according to a separate report. That's the highest since June 1998, before the euro was introduced, according to Eurostat.read full: http://www.businessweek.com/news/2011-11-30/euro-area-inflation-steady-unemployment-hits-13-year-high.html

World on brink of another economic meltdown: UN

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/business/international-business/World-on-brink-of-another-economic-meltdown-UN/articleshow/10954262.cms PTI|Dec 2, 2011, 10.52AM ISTUNITED NATIONS: TheUnited Nationshas warned that the world is on the brink of another recession, projecting thatglobal economic growthwill slow down further in 2012 and even emerging powerhouses like India and China, which led the recovery last time, will get bogged down.

The UN 'World Economic Situation and Prospects 2012' report has cut the global growth forecast for next year to 2.6 per cent from 4 per cent in 2010.

It has called 2012 a "make-or-break" year for the global economy, which will face a "muddle-through" scenario and continue to grow at a slow pace.

"Following two years of anaemic and uneven recovery from the global financial crisis, the world economy is teetering on the brink of another major downturn," the UN report said, warning that "the risks for adouble-dip reces…
