2012 : OUTLOOK FOR GOLD PRICES - CCTV News

Uploaded by cctvnewsenglish on 28 Dec 2011 - Gold prices have fallen 16 percent since reaching a record high, above 1,900 U.S. dollars an ounce in September. But 2012 looks to be another glittering year, with many analysts and institutions predicting gold prices will again rise.

Goldman Sachs says gold prices will continue to go up, and will average one thousand 940 dollars per ounce over the next 12 months. Meanwhile, Citigroup's metals expert says gold could appreciate to three thousand 400 dollars in the next year or two. Although gold's decline has shown extreme risk aversion on the market, the analyst at Deutsche Bank says they see a recovery in gold prices next year.

Gold found in South Africa mine's waste

Uploaded by AlJazeeraEnglish on Nov 4, 2011 - In a single gold mine in South Africa, an expected $2.2 billion worth of gold can still be extracted from just one dump site's waste material.Using water cannons and chemical treatements, a single mine can hope to extract about 3 grams in every tonne.

 It may not sound like much but if there is 140 million tonnes of waste lying around - the numbers start adding up. High prices means all the effort that goes into sourcing the precious metal may well be worth it.

Goldvein, Virginia : Gold Prices Luring Many to Start Prospecting

Uploaded by VOAvideo on Aug 25, 2011 - As gold prices continue to rise around the world, there is renewed interest in panning for gold in certain parts of the United States.

Casino Capitalism Centers failures makes gold stronger.

Published on Aug 18, 2011 by Euronews - The world financial markets have again been taking a beating due to renewed worries about recession and Europe's debt crisis. European bourses suffered their biggest daily fall in two and a half years - with the top 300 shares down five percent at the close. The sell off was on both sides of the Atlantic - with the Dow Jones Industrial Average down around four percent for most of the session - made worse by a decline in factory activity in the US Mid-Atlantic region and an increase in the number of Americans claiming new jobless benefits last week.



Gold Hits New Record After Chavez Announces Plan To Pull Reserves From US, European Banks


Thursday, August 18, 2011
Gold Hits New Record After Chavez Announces Plan To Pull Reserves From US, European Banks 5469702
Despite a report from the World Gold Council showing that demand for the precious metal has subsided, gold soared to a new record high today on the back of another stock market plunge and an announcement from Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez that the country’s gold mining industry would be nationalized.
Gold touched a new record high of around $1827 dollars an ounce as the Dow Jones plunged by 500 points in early trading.
Gold soared to new heights even in the face of aWorld Gold Council report that said demand was down 37% year on year.
However, the report noted that there was “increasing acceptance of higher price levels” globally, which explained a modest 3% fall in recycling gold on the supply side.
Although today’s new high for gold is obviously being driven by a flight to safety as the stock market crumbles, Hugo Chavez’s announcement last night that he was to nationalize the country’s gold mining industry undoubtedly has had an impact on today’s trading.

USD & World Trade - The Theft Under Our Nose.


The US have stole the world resources by giving valueless paper in return. They stole at least USD 14 trillon worth of world resources and still the world is missing the plot. USD14 trillion is USA's total debt as at May 2011 and its growing at USD1 trillion p.a This means every year USA steals USD1 trillion worth of our resources under our nose by printing paper currency and the world is still blind to the theft.

If only the Muslim world wakes up. If only the Muslim world finds an alternative other than USD in trades between itself. It will begin to at least stop some of the thieving. If only the Muslim world becomes a common market. In trades with non Muslim countries it can first try barter trade. When that limit has been reached exchange of each others currencies. And when forced then can use yuan or euro cautiously lest they become another USD. Muslim intellect must sit and discuss solutions to this problem.

But this will never happen when we have Muslim nations in blind support of the US. Much of these nations' investments are in the US including real property. It is difficult to dethrone the USD in the light of such fundamental compromises of principles.

Why Gold Is Going Higher?

While there are many reasons that gold and silver are going to keep moving higher as the fiat currencies trend lower, at our recent Casey Research Summit in Boca Raton, faculty member Mike Maloney pointed out a fact that, while obvious in hindsight, I had never heard mentioned previously.

Namely that during the last major precious metals bull market in the 1970s, only about 10% of the world could own gold – either due to legal restrictions or a lack of liquid capital.

Today, few countries prohibit gold ownership, and a far higher percentage of the world’s population has transitioned out of poverty.

China provides the most germane example, having legalized gold and silver ownership for private citizens in 2004, and through the explosive growth in national GDP that has caused Chinese gold purchases to skyrocket.

Confirming the point, the following is an excerpt from a recent Wall Street Journal article:

Russia Says IMF Chief Jailed For Discovering All US Gold Is Gone.



May 31, 2011: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

A new report prepared for Prime Minister Putin by the Federal Security Service (FSB) says that former International Monetary Fund (IMF) Chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn [photo with Putin top left] was charged and jailed in the US for sex crimes on May 14th after his discovery that all of the gold held in the United States Bullion Depository located at Fort Knox [photo 2nd left] was ‘missing and/or unaccounted’ for. 

According to this FSB secret report, Strauss-Kahn had become “increasingly concerned” earlier this month after the United States began “stalling” its pledged delivery to the IMF of 191.3 tons of gold agreed to under the Second Amendment of the Articles of Agreement signed by the Executive Board in April 1978 that were to be sold to fund what are called Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) as an alternative to what are called reserve currencies. 

This FSB report further states that upon Strauss-Kahn raising his concerns with American government officials close to President Obama he was ‘contacted’ by ‘rogue elements’ within the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) who provided him ‘firm evidence’ that all of the gold reported to be held by the US ‘was gone’.

Upon Strauss-Kahn receiving the CIA evidence, this report continues, he made immediate arrangements to leave the US for Paris, but when contacted by agents working for France’s General Directorate for External Security (DGSE) that American authorities were seeking his capture he fled to New York City’s JFK airport following these agents directive not to take his cell-phone because US police could track his exact location. 

Once Strauss-Kahn was safely boarded on an Air France flight to Paris, however, this FSB report says he made a ‘fatal mistake’ by calling the hotel from a phone on the plane and asking them to forwarded the cell-phone he had been told to leave behind to his French residence, after which US agents were able to track and apprehend him.

Gold rush: All change for the world's favourite metal.


Gold's position as the ultimate storer of value has remained largely unchallenged for centuries.
The metal's rarity not only meant it became a recognised and trusted form of payment, but also bestowed upon it an almost mystical allure.
This came about not through historical accident or coincidence, but for the simple reason that nothing else fitted the bill; almost every other element is either too common, reactive, corrosive or gaseous. And most of those that aren't are just too scarce.
Throughout history emperors, kings and queens, governments, central banks and investors have trusted gold to maintain its value.
This is simply because gold is a physical asset with a finite supply, unlike cash, equities and bonds, which can be printed or issued at will.
For investors, therefore, it has always been seen primarily as a good hedge against inflation - traditionally, few people bought gold to make money, simply to protect themselves against losing it.
Price surge
But all this is changing. Gold has risen in value every year for the past 10 years, during which its price has risen fivefold to more than $1,500 an ounce.
No longer, therefore, is gold seen simply as a way to store value, but as a genuine investment opportunity offering the potential to make a serious return.

Gold, Silver Set Record High on China Buying Bets

Commodities – Metals

Spot Gold (NY Close): $1506.85 // +0.60 // +0.04%

Prices gapped higher through resistance at $1508.95, the 200% Fibonacci extension of the 3/7-3/15 downswing, to challenge the top of a rising channel in place since mid-March. A break above this boundary exposes the 238.2% Fib at $1533.44. The 200% Fib level has been recast as near-term support.

Precious metal prices soared in overnight trade following a report from Century Magazine that claimed China plans to invest some of its more than $3 trillion in FX reserves in various assets including energy and precious metals. PBOC chief ZhouXiaochuan has said the current build-up has exceeded “reasonable” levels, while independent reports have pegged the “right” amount of FX reserves for China at no more than $1.3 trillion.

Spot Silver (NY Close): $47.25 // +0.65 // +1.40%

Prices gapped above resistance at the top of a rising channel in place since late January, setting a new record high at $49.78. The metal is now in uncharted territory, making forecasting decidedly difficult, but deeply overbought relative strength studies suggest the threat of reversal is increasingly high. The channel top, now at $46.91, stands as near-term support.

The short-term directional correlation between gold and silver remains firm, suggesting the two metals will continue to move along the same trajectory. The gold/silver ratio has set a new record low however, meaning the cheaper metal is likely to continue outperforming its more expensive counterpart.

A Comeback for the Gold Standard?

40 years after the U.S. abandoned the gold standard, it may be starting a comeback. As the dollar's status as reserve currency continues to waver, rivals like the precioous metals, Chinese Yuan, Euro, and SDRs are vying for top spot.
JP Morgan recently started accepting gold as collateral for clients. Today Utah legislation was introduced that would allow gold and silver coins to serve as currency. Slowly, the gold standard is making a comeback.
Fox News reports on the possible return on gold and silver as currency in America.
The Utah House was to vote as early as Thursday on legislation that would recognize gold and silver coins issued by the federal government as legal currency in the state. The coins would not replace the current paper currency but would be used and accepted voluntarily as an alternative.
The legislation, which has 12 co-sponsors, would let Utahans pay their taxes with gold and also calls for a committee to study alternative currencies for the state. It would also exempt the sale of gold from the state capital gains tax.
