Eurozone Contagion Deepens After Disastrous German Auction; Silver Supply Issues

Eurozone Contagion Deepens After Disastrous German Auction; Silver Supply Issues

Gold is trading at USD 1,687.10, EUR 1,262.60, GBP 1,086.30, CHF 1,554.20, JPY 130,590 and CNY 10,760 per ounce. 

Gold’s London AM fix this morning was USD 1,686.00, GBP 1,083.55, and EUR 1,260.46 per ounce.

Yesterday's AM fix was USD 1,697.50, GBP 1,083.90, and EUR 1,253.14 per ounce.


Cross Currency Rates

Gold is lower in all major currencies today except euros with euro gold having risen 0.25% to EUR 1,263/oz. 

The euro came under pressure due to the surprise collapse in new Eurozone industrial orders which led to Germany failing to get bids for 35% of bunds offered. The German 10-year bund yield rose sharply from 1.92% to over 2.06%.

This is one of Germany's worst auctions since the launch of the Euro with the Bundesbank having to pick up nearly 40% of the 6 billion euros on offer.

The German auction in turn led to further weakness in European equity markets. Asian equity indices followed US equities lower after news of a new US bank stress test and then the poor Chinese manufacturing data.

Gold will be supported at these levels as the euro zone debt crisis continues to degenerate with the periphery increasingly affecting the core – leading to contagion.

The bond auction in Germany is a disaster. If Germany has to buy its own bonds, it is frightening to think how other European nations, including France, will fare at bond auctions in the coming weeks.

Gold remains possibly the most under-owned asset in the world, and definitely the most infrequently and poorly covered in the mainstream media.

The specialist financial press and media (FT, Bloomberg, Reuters, WSJ, CNBC, Dow Jones etc.) covers gold, but the mainstream media continues to report on gold sporadically at best. When the mainstream media does cover gold it is covered badly with poor analysis and a continuing simplistic suggestion that "gold is a bubble".  It fails to comprehensively cover the gold market.

The vast majority of investors and savers in the western world have no allocation to gold whatsoever and know little or nothing about gold. 

Daytime TV and the popular press and media almost never have segments about how to invest in, or own gold. 

The western public is not familiar with the gold market, let alone familiar with how to invest in or own gold bullion, gold coins or gold bars.  This leads to a large number of the public who don't trust what they are not familiar with, or what they simply do not understand.


Gold in USD – Bloomberg Inflation Adjusted (1970-2011)

The 'woman and man in the street' in much of the western world continues to sell gold as seen in the 'cash for gold' phenomenon. This is in marked contrast to the Chinese and Indian public that has been aggressively buying bullion as a store of value. 

Inquiries and sales from the general public remain anemic and there has been only a very slight pick up in demand from the public - despite the real deterioration in the outlook for the Eurozone, the US and the global economy.

GoldCore remains confident that most of our business is coming from educated investors.

This means existing clients who already have allocations are increasing their allocations, high net worths and some corporates concerned about deposits due to currency and systemic risk.

The majority of the public does not understand gold and the importance of diversification.

There continues to be a lot of preconceived notions, lack of knowledge and ignorance about gold as a safe haven asset and as an important diversification.

A plethora of excellent research articles by the World Gold Council, Casey Research (see their excellent report on gold in commentary today), major banks, ourselves and many others continue to be ignored by most of the media.

Comprehensive research is ignored. Singular and minor news events such as a few gold ATMs globally or comments by George Soros or Nouriel Roubini are focused on in a lazy fashion and used to suggest that gold is a bubble.

Financial ‘experts’ and ‘advisers’ with little or no experience or knowledge of the gold market often speak authoritatively about gold and generally in a negative manner which dissuades investors and savers from properly diversifying.

The case for owning gold has never been stronger and yet popular media and public skepticism remains high.

The lack of coverage in the mainstream media and the occasional poor coverage is symptomatic of a bull market in its infancy.

Animal spirits and public participation remain negligible.  

From the GoldCore Trading Desk
There are reports of some US and UK bullion dealers not having supply of certain bullion product – particularly silver bars.

We currently have stock of nearly all major bullion products in volume and ready for immediate delivery.

However, supply issues are developing with regard to 10 oz silver bars which are not available for now. 100 oz silver bars in volume require a 2 week wait.

With regard to gold product, there are 1 week delays for kilo bars and for 1 ounce Krugerrands and Philharmonics.

The majority of the public does not understand gold and the importance of diversification.

 

What they fail to realize is the fucking public has no money to invest in gold. They've already been robbed. Those that have anything left in their 401k's have no fucking option to invest in Gold. YOu basically get 5 -10 funds you can invest in and that's it.

What the fuck do the majority of Americans do? Sell their food stamps to buy Gold? Huge disconnect between the preachers of Gold and the reality that has gripped America 20 % + of real unemployment, 1 out of 4 on Food Stamps, half the coutnry living either below or around the poverty line.

All I know is all the gold in the world isn't going to save you from a desperate hungry person with a gun. Let's hope it doesn't come to that.

Actually, you can buy physical rhodium from Kitco (and only from Kitco), but only in a powdered form --- no ingots or coins available.  But they strongly encourage you to allow them to hold it for you, "for safe keeping" of course.

But aside from that, why would ANYONE buy anything from a company that employs a rabidly hyperbolic, disingenuous, pro-bankster, malicious anti-gold propagandist as their official spokesman?  Kitco, and that lying bastard Jon Nadler, can both kiss my ass and then go to Hell.

Been sayin' it for a while, about Germany's precarious home finances. In reality they're in the same boat albeit with great exports. THose exports were bound to tank ahrd because they're mostly on the luxury and high-end side. They feed of the Yuppie zeitgeist which is fast evaporating. There are cheaper substitutes for most of their biggest exports. 

Yes, their banks are in deep. Real deep. But their internal demographics are a major problem. Lots of liabilities and a persistent unemployment problem with the Eastern pat of the country.

Fed admits hiding gold swap arrangements Section:

11p Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The Federal Reserve System has disclosed to GATA that it has gold swap arrangements with foreign banks that it does not want the public to know about.

The disclosure contradicts denials provided by the Fed to GATA in 2001 and suggests that the Fed is indeed very much involved in the surreptitious international central bank manipulation of the gold price particularly and the currency markets generally.

The Fed's disclosure came this week in a letter to GATA's Washington-area lawyer, William J. Olson of Vienna, Virginia (http://www.lawandfreedom.com/), denying GATA's administrative appeal of a freedom-of-information request to the Fed for information about gold swaps, transactions in which monetary gold is temporarily exchanged between central banks or between central banks and bullion banks. (See the International Monetary Fund's treatise on gold swaps here: http://www.imf.org/external/bopage/pdf/99-10.pdf.)

If I don't believe there's gold in Fort Knox, why would I believe COMEX statements on the amount of physical metal they hold? 

Just sayin'.............

This is getting ugly. Look at Belgian and German intraday bond yields!

So silver and gold are kinda a secret thing and the general public is unaware. AND silver is running short in big bars, BUT we happen to have a little, and can get you some.

 

The above condensation of the article says to me that they need a new writer. I do own silver and gold and have the piggy bank handy to buy more. However, I think Jessie’s Café has a little more realistic look at these markets and has been accurate in calling down turns.

 

Are PMs coupled to the Dow--- it does not make sense, but it looks that way for the last few weeks. For those like myself that bought a very little at more at $45, waiting for a proven turn point seems reasonable before buying more.

 

Not being an investor, I would appreciate counter points.

"Silver supply issues"  = music to my ears.

If these paper trading bastards would ease up, the price would rise and the supply issues would disappear, but no.  Since options expiry was yesterday and the raids (apparently) haven't shaken loose enough metal to cover, the raid continues. They've gone full retard. Think I'll pick up another 10 oz dragon to celebrate their stupidity.

Ruh-roh, I see there's a 13 dollar an oz premium on this item. No disconnect there, no sir.

"Silver supply problems" --- NOT "issues"!

"Issues" are a subject of discussion, and do NOT necessarily imply a problem.  Where did this widespread misuse of that word suddenly spring from?

They are doing all they can to hold it down for a little longer.Thats why they took down MF,and destroyed confidence,and removed a mass of contracts from being called for delivery.You better get your bucks to the shiny stuff,fast.

And too all you gold/silver bashing trolls,you might as well start bashing the Chi'coms,Russki's,and a host of other central banks for quietly hoarding the precious stuff.They are licking theyre collective chops looking at these prices.

These low prices and discounts are a blessing,do not complain.The only reason you can buy so low is because of the manipulation,and be greatful you are going to see the collapse of the world fiat system and remonetization of precious metals.

We are living,and are granted a once in a multi-millenia oppotunity to purchase at such distorted twilight-zone prices,and at the same time watch the collapse soon to unfold,making you sit real pretty,if you have the fiat to exchange into the shiny stuff.
