Gold Breaks Out and Consolidates Above $1,700/oz – Financial Alchemy Risks Severe Inflation

Gold is trading at USD 1,708.20, EUR 1,230.11, GBP 1,071.37, JPY 129,700, AUD 1,650 and CNY 10,864 per ounce.
Gold’s London AM fix this morning was USD 1,713.00, GBP 1,070.69 and EUR 1,229.54 per ounce.
Yesterday’s AM fix was USD 1,656.25, GBP 1,036.19 and EUR 1,187.96 per ounce.

Gold in USD – 30 (Tick)

Gold has extended yesterday’s 4% rise in the US, with further gains seen overnight in Asia and consolidation in Europe. Safe haven demand continues due to increasing risk of a failed outcome from the European Union leaders' meeting scheduled later today and due to significant macroeconomic and monetary risks.

The cancellation of a European finance ministers meeting and downplaying of expectations by euro-zone officials about the outcome of the EU summit is adding to investor concerns about contagion emanating from the nexus of European banks and large sovereigns including Italy. There are conflicting reports that Berlusconi has agreed to step down.

U.S. Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner warned of the “catastrophic risk” posed by the turmoil.

The Bank of England dismissed the chaotic efforts to save the eurozone from financial meltdown as a temporary solution to the region’s woes.

Governor Sir Mervyn King said long term issues such as towering levels of debt and structurally weak economies still needed to be tackled.

‘The aim of the measures to be introduced over the next few days is to create a year or possibly two years’ breathing space,’ he said.

King’s warning follows that of former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan who warned on CNBC two weeks ago that the EU was doomed to fail because the divide between the northern and southern countries is just too great.

The key problem facing bureaucrats and bankers of massive swathes of debt in the European and global financial system is not being tackled. They are attempting to rectify a problem of too much debt by further electronic and paper money creation and the creation of even more debt.

The growing risk now is that in a desperate attempt to solve the crisis, bankers and bureaucrats in the EU, US and elsewhere are practicing an extreme form of financial alchemy which risks stagflation and possibly in a worse case scenario hyperinflation.

Monetary economics and history shows that there will be costs and ramifications for the creation of billions and trillions of euros, dollars, pounds, yen and other fiat currencies.

The European Monetary Union (EMU) rightly expressly forbid the printing and electronic creation of money to bail out banks and sovereign nations.

A look at a history of currencies—including the mighty Deutsche Mark—shows the unavoidable results of currency debasement.

Bild reported, without citing how it obtained the information, that the Bundesbank’s gold reserves may be used as collateral in the event that the European Financial Stability Facility can’t meet its payment obligations.

Yes Max, this is a puzzler. I can't join the gold fans by saying it's because of events in the EU. The EU has been a basket case for some time now. This is definitely not news related, or if it is, it's related to news that has yet to become public knowledge.

I also can't agree with the author that a close above $1700 and trading in the $1700-$1710 range in the premarket constitutes "consolidation". We will see today if this thing has legs or not, but as far as I'm concerned, it needs some sort of a confirmation day to show it's for real.

Don't get suckered by the news explanation. The news was just as bad when gold tanked recently.

Absolutely, and the five weeks of ranged bound trading were the result of manipulation. I get that. So what made TPTB stop manipulating the price and allow it to rise to the top of the range (and beyond now that we are at $1712? What has changed? My point is there is something going on that we don't know about that removed their foot from the brake.

Tuesday at 1:30 PM EDT New York is the cutoff for this Friday's COT report. We know that the bullion banks (JPM, HSBC, etc.) are quite often 'tardy' reporting their numbers for the preceding Tuesdays trading at the cut off.

Me thinks they have used this same old, same old, to cover some more of their massive short position and then attempt to hide the fact, by delaying their timely reporting of numbers to this Friday's COT report.

Just more market fiddling. When they cover their shorts to that amount, has the same effect as a buyer with deep pockets showing up. Watch the COT report for hints, but you may have to wait an extra week!

And the printing of money and adding more debt to "buy time" is exactly what the US has done with not a whiff of a plan to actually create growth. Structural competitive disadvantages and lack of technological productivity growth cannot be magically fixed with refinancing underwater mortgages or paving more roads. The next 5 years are probably lost so the real question is whether the government will take a longer view, and start allocating capital to R&D, fix the patent system, withdraw troops and from the IMF, and raise tarriffs to protect jobs. A little period of isolationism here is exactly what the doctor ordered..

EU won`t be able to do any money printing via ECB because Germany(the no1 EU member) clearly opposes it, although Sarkozy would love it. http://srnnews.townhall.com/news/us/2011/10/25/germany_against_eu_draft_...

 

China won`t lend to them and today Brazil said they won`t either. Without BRICS, leveraging the EFSF, they`re pretty much doomed. They`ll have to let some banks fail and we`ll see a big Lehman type scenario unfolding again. Following the pattern of 2008 crisis, gold and silver might tank for a while.

US Fed might restrain from more printing due to political opposition and riots accross the country. Printing more money would make matters worse for people, lowering purchasing power and creating even more riots in an election year.

Bashing the FED rethoric has become widely popular on both Occupy Wallstreet and in Tea Party and some FED members are afraid of being sacked if they don`t abide to political pressure. They`ll most likely do what`s good for them and restrain from printing.

Gold’s move was just a catch up of the commodities move which had recovered and went higher than the last two weeks highs.

Gold recovered late which is very unusual.

There is also anticipation/speculation of a solution in Europe based on money printing which is bullish for Gold but this solution may not come.

Not until Europe is truly on the brink of collapse.

"That’s my bet anyway, how about yours?"

I usually have too many opinions for my own good, but I am really baffled by this one. Gold didn't just "catch up" to the commodities move, it was allowed to catch up. Whatever was holding it down relented for reasons of its own. In the past, those motivations have been downright malevolent, so I am wary and willing to give up the beginning of this move.

My guess is they won't print and the gold bulls will get sheared, then the real move up in gold prices will begin (The second mouse gets the cheese).

I'm a PM bull.  However, the amount of technical damage that was done on both gold and silver in the last correction makes it very difficult to believe that PMs are about to rip again.  A longer base is needed, in my view.  This was the second go around for silver...where it corrected bigtime, recovered a bit, and then declined bigtime again. 

Plus, in the recent market correction of July-August, the correlation between equities and PMs were very strong.  Whether it was margin liquidations or what, the PMs declined with the market...same thing happened in 2008.

So, I'm not hopeful for PMs in the near-term.

The growing risk now is that in a desperate attempt to solve the crisis, bankers and bureaucrats in the EU, US and elsewhere are practicing an extreme form of financial alchemy which risks stagflation and possibly in a worse case scenario hyperinflation.

"Risks stagflation"?  More like we are already in it, at least for the common man......his wage ratios towards the top and against he USD have stayed the same for over 15 years!  Hyperinflation is next ala Argentina; policy bullets from politicans buying time (and creating more debt) are only fanning flames to a huge brush fire.

U.S. Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner warned of the “catastrophic risk” posed by the turmoil.

You mean the turmoil HE and other central banks have created by waging a war on precious metals and the avergage investor's ability to acquire them?

A little isolationism IS what the doctor ordered...China is in the process of going to a gold standard within 7-15 years.  Once that happens, USA workers will be the ones working in slave wage conditions.  Either the US Govt needs to take it ball and go home....or the AMerican people will do it for them if they continue to pander to these central banker douchebags.

Long Silver 33... Just a taste. I didn't follow my own advice on Oil and I regret it. Markets are nutz, but robots are still helping technicals have some validity. Or not....

It won't matter at all a couple of $100 here or there in the flux of gold prices... the bottom line is ARE YOU HOLDING PHYSICAL?   All that matters.

Looking for Europe to implode and a rush to the dollar, which will temporarily tank the PM's and give anyone who has not gotten on board, ONE LAST CALL.   What is truly precious about PM is holding physical.  

Nothing else matters.  Everything is going to hell and this is the only way to insure you will have something left when we emerge later, on the other side.
