MUMBAI (MINEWEB) -

 

"It is not just Indian bullion retailers who are gearing up for the festival of lights in India next week.

 

"The World Gold Council too has noted a significant jump in sales from end-October and early November, in a run-up to the festival.

 

"India's import of the precious metal could be appreciably higher than was earlier envisaged, according to the Council. At a press conference, the global organisation said that India could import around 800 tonnes this year, way more than the 640 odd tonnes that was spoken about earlier this year. ..."

Dan Norcini writes:

 

"Another payrolls report today; another down day in the precious metals. Not much of a surprise here as that has been the norm for many a year. In one sense, it really did not matter what the number was as there was more than likely going to be bearish selling pressure no matter what.

 

"When it comes to silver, if the number was a poor one, the bears would point to the fact that the QE3 was already baked into the cake and so was a non-factor. They would then point to the fact that the poor number was sign that the economy was still muddling along without any risk of inflationary factors due to the sluggish growth. Silver MUST HAVE AN INFLATIONARY ENVIRONMENT if it is to mount any sort of SUSTAINED rally. ..."

Investors Selling Because They Need the Money - TrimTabs Money Blog

Investors Selling Because They Need the Money - TrimTabs Money Blog | Gold and What Moves it. | Scoop.it

Charles Biderman says:

 

"Individual investors have been getting out of US equity mutual funds for most of this year. And the pace of outflows has been soaring recently. Outflows for all of 2012 now stand at $100 billion. Half of that, $50 billion, came out during the last three months. Flight from the funds is not a new trend. In fact, about $134 billion flowed out of equity mutual funds in 2011. What’s really puzzling is that despite these heavy outflows, stock prices have gone up."

Charles Hugh Smith writes:

 

"The destructive whirlwind that hits New York in 2013 will be a financial Frankenstorm.

 

"Four years of glorious central-planning "extend and pretend" have enriched the political and financial Aristocracies, and imbued them with a bubble-era hubris that they have indeed gotten away with murder: the $6 trillion the Federal government borrowed over the past four years, the Fed's $2 trillion in fresh cash, the Fed's $16 trillion bailout of the banking sector and various perception management manipulations have righted the storm-tossed ship. All those with power in 2008 remain in power and all those with outsized wealth in 2008 still hold their outsized wealth.


"The global tsunami of borrowed and printed money lifted the water-logged dinghies of the debt-serfs enough to give them hope of better times; meanwhile, their adjusted income has declined 8%: they are poorer while the neofeudal Aristocracy is much wealthier: same as it ever was, right?

 

"Except the financial tides and winds have shifted, and the linearity of central planning is about to be disrupted by nonlinear, positive-feedback storms. Let's list a few of the major storms brewing ..." click through for the extensive list.

"Technical analysis is a great tool for analyzing where the market has been. Since human beings almost always behave in cyclical fashion, we can observe patterns in market action that tend to repeat. Combined with fundamental studies, TA is applied to the markets by virtually all of the successful traders.


"Some patterns occur so often that names have been assigned to these patterns such as: 'Head and Shoulders', 'Cup with Handle' and 'A.R.A.T.'


"In this essay we draw your attention to another pattern that recently occurred on the gold charts, for only the fourth time in the past seven years. Each time it appeared during the past seven years, it precluded a strong advance.

Iran starts requiring central bank approval for gold exports | Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee | Gold and What Moves it. | Scoop.it

DUBAI -- Iranians can no longer export gold without approval by the central bank, an official was quoted as saying on Wednesday, in a new effort by the government to restrict outflows of wealth.

 

The move follows media reports on Tuesday that Iran had banned the export of some 50 basic goods, as the country moves to secure supplies of essential items in the face of tightening Western sanctions that have destabilised its currency, the rial.

 

"The export of gold and coins without permission from the central bank has been banned," said customs official Mohammad Reza Naderi, according to the Mehr news agency. ..."

Greyerz - One Of The Most Important Charts Ever | Gold and What Moves it. | Scoop.it

Egon von Greyerz tells to King World News:

 

".. The real over-the-counter derivatives outstanding, worldwide, is at least $1.1 quadrillion, and a major part of that is worthless. People have no idea what kind of turmoil and destruction this can cause to the global financial system. KWN readers need to understand that as the global economy edges closer and closer to collapse, the earthquakes in the financial system will become so enormous that it will eventually overwhelm politicians and central planners.

 

"This is why it is so important that investors protect themselves by holding physical gold and silver outside of the banking system because the coming derivatives disaster will create an explosion in the price of gold. And when the chaos is finally over and a new financial system emerges, gold and silver will be one of the few assets left standing. ..."

Exclusive: John Embry - What To Expect In 2013 | Gold and What Moves it. | Scoop.it

John Embry tells King World News:

 

"I think we will see the first manifestations of the negative aspect (of money printing in 2013). To date, money velocity has been falling because even though all of this high powered money is being stuffed into the market by these central banks, the banks and the public really can’t seem to get the lending mechanism working.

 

"The banks are afraid, and the public is over-indebted. But I think that will just make them push QE even harder, and at some point there will be a collective realization from all these people that are holding bonds and cash, etc., that ‘My God, the money is being destroyed. Get me out.’

 

"That’s what will get the velocity to change direction, and then you will see mounting inflation very quickly. ..."

Here is what Greyerz had this to say in Part II, along with his comments about the fascinating chart: “I discussed the real over-the-counter derivatives earlier, which stand at $1.1 quadrillion, and this is worldwide. Every time there is a problem in a bank it seems to be derivatives related, such as what happened with JP Morgan which recently lost $5.6 billion, and UBS which lost $2.3 billion.

 

“They have young people, many times in their 20s, coming in and having derivatives positions of tens of billions or even one hundred+ billion dollars, and these young people have no idea what they are doing. The individual from UBS, who is now defending himself, said, ‘I just came in to run these positions. I had no idea about this market.’ He is only 27 years old.

 

"So you have inexperienced people taking massive risks, and running positions which amount to an unthinkable total of $1.1 quadrillion. ..."

"The cargo vessel was contracted by mining company Polymetal to ship its cargo to a processing plant where it could be refined into gold.

 

"It had departed the port of Kiran and was making a routine run to Feklistov Island when apparently it encountered stormy weather.

Emergency response teams picked up the distress signal from an automated beacon, but lost contact with the crew when the ship lost power. ..."

Acute Gold shortage grips Nepal

Negosida has projected that daily demand of gold could jump to around 40 kg per day when the customers start shopping for Tihar.

"Gold demand in Nepal rose substantially since the onset of the festive season when Nepalis receive festive allowances and bonuses, among others.

 

"However, bullion traders have stopped sales of gold bars and gold coins and concentrated solely on sales of gold ornaments after gold supply received from commercial banks started to fall short to meet the demand that has picked up.

 

"Nepal Gold and Silver Dealers Association (Negosida) said they resorted to such measure particularly after daily demand for gold surged to 30 kg, which is twofold of the supply they receive from commercial banks. ..."

Get Ready For Big Moves In Gold, The US Dollar & The Euro

Get Ready For Big Moves In Gold, The US Dollar & The Euro | Gold and What Moves it. | Scoop.it

Tom Fitzpatrick tells King World News:

 

“... Moving to gold, our bias remains that we are in a consolidation and this consolidation will eventually give way to the topside again. A lot of people when we mention this might say, ‘Well that seems counterintuitive. You have a setup which you believe is constructive to the dollar, yet at the same time you are seeing a situation where effectively you believe the US dollar will lose ground vs gold.’

 

"Our answer to that is number one, it’s certainly not unprecedented. If you look at where we are on the dollar index, it is at very similar levels to where it was earlier this year. If you look at the dollar index, the dollar was able to breakout around the 11th through the 14th of May, yet gold actually put in its lows in terms of its corrective move about three or four days later, and subsequently started to move higher ..."

The euro is heading for a permanent state of depression - Telegraph | Gold and What Moves it. | Scoop.it
If the euro survives in its current form, then Mario Draghi, president of the European Central Bank, will surely have earned his place in the history books as one of the chief architects of its salvation.

 

By Jeremy Warner 

 

"A year ago, monetary union looked as if it was heading for certain death, with the European banking system in apparent meltdown and extreme divergence in monetary conditions across the single currency area. In all but name, monetary union had already ceased to exist.

 

"Action by the ECB, first with the cash-for-debt Long Term Refinancing Operation and, more recently, the promise of unlimited bond purchases, has succeeded in stilling the waters, at least to some degree. Even a Greek exit seems, for the time being, to be off the table. With more austerity, Berlin seems minded to give Greeks another chance – until the next bail-out, in any case.

 

"But, though the single currency may have been saved from imminent death on the operating table, it seems now to be heading for a scarcely more appetising alternative – a condition of chronic, long-term illness where still very tight monetary conditions in many parts of the eurozone in combination with lockstep austerity threaten to induce a virtually permanent state of depression. Even Germany shows every sign of slipping back into economic contraction. ..."

Germany`s gold reserve inspection could spark other central bank gold audits

Germany`s gold reserve inspection could spark other central bank gold audits | Gold and What Moves it. | Scoop.it

by Dorothy Kosich:

 

"Growing demands from German officials and politicians to formally check German gold reserves now held in the United States have sparked media reports that the gold reserves of several Western nations are believed to be smaller than previously thought.

 

"In an article published Tuesday in Coin Week, Louis Golino suggests, "If these reports are accurate, they have important implications for the future price of gold, and therefore for precious metals investors."

 

"First, they suggest that much less mined gold exists than previously believed. Second, this is especially significant to the so-called manipulation thesis, which hold that governments act to surpress the price of gold," Golino noted.

 

"If governments hold less gold than we thought they did, then their ability to affect the price will also be greatly diminished," he advised. ...

"... This pullback is almost identical to the pullback of January 2011.

Once a bottom a found, a volatile consolidation takes place.

 

"The paper spec shorts, just recently drawn into the trade, will initially fight the rally by "throwing good money after bad" in a desperate attempt to protect buy-stops and re-ignite downside momentum.

 

"The initial resistance is $1720 in gold and $32.25 in silver.

 

"The next resistance is $1730-36 in gold and $32.50-60 in silver.
