He cited a "strong signal" of interest rate hikes ahead based on changes in the U.S. Federal Open Market Committee statement Wednesday. "A hawkish U.S. Federal Reserve adds negative pressure on gold, as higher interest rates and a stronger dollar dims the appeal of gold as an alternative asset," Lee said. India overtook China as the world's biggest gold consumer in 2014 as global physical demand fell, an industry report showed on Thursday, forecasting that prices that have declined for the last two years would bottom out this year. Gold shipments to China from Hong Kong fell 32 percent in 2014 from a record a year earlier as lower prices failed to boost demand. Demand for luxury goods including bullion has been hurt by an anti-graft drive in China, while a rally in stock markets damped interest in the metal as an investment. Purchases of the precious metal that pushed China above India as the world’s biggest consumer after it dropped into a bear market in 2013 haven’t been sustained, leading banks including Goldman Sachs Group Inc. to predict further price declines A larger global currency shift is underway. The absolutely stunning decision by the Swiss National Bank to decouple from the euro has triggered billions of dollars worth of losses all over the globe. China has been quietly stockpiling gold for years now. In fact, it is stockpiling so much gold that many have speculated that it may be building a gold-backed yuan currency that would make the Dollar pale in comparison on the global market. Lots of other countries are rapidly buying up gold, too, including – Serbia, Greece, Ecuador, Mexico, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan. But reportedly no one is buying gold at a faster pace than Russia. More than that, Putin has been positioning his motherland to team up with China to solidify the emerging BRICS system which aims to thwart decades of Anglo financial dominance with a un-dollar currency system that will also include a development bank. china gold shopping "gold bullion" "cash for gold" chinese 2015 jewelry jewellery "mainland china" import export bullion silver commodity gram "gold etf" money cash wealth wealthy savings "savings account" "bank account" banking "hong kong" hk travel store sale "chinese language" "silver coin" sell west asia currency "forex trading" "china yuan" rmb india premium "elite nwo agenda" jim rogers david icke lindsey williams glenn beck alex jones infowars jsnip4 demcad prepper george soros black in china girls macau coast to coast am With the gold price continuing to outperform stocks and cyclical commodities in 2010, debate has intensified over how much upside is left in gold’s bull market. One of the most successful investors of this generation, hedge fund magnate who rose to fame for shorting securities tied to the housing market prior to the financial crisis of 2008, recently expressed his bullish outlook for the gold price As for the gold price, very bullish on the yellow metal, noting that the price of gold has been highly correlated to the monetary base for as long as his firm, Paulson & Co., has tracked the data. Given his expectation for further money printing by the Fed – and that in 1980 the gold price rose by 100% more than the correlation implied – assets are denominated in gold – a strong indication of his disdain for fiat currencies. ukraine gold gone First, China buys physical gold in world markets, fabricates it where necessary into “good delivery” bars – in Switzerland or the Middle East – then ships the bullion, transparently through Hong Kong or Shanghai (or quietly through Beijing and other ports of entry). Second, it keeps virtually all domestically mined gold “in house.” The world was slow to wake up to the new reality in which China is now the de facto IMF sovereign backstop, as Zero Hedge described two weeks ago in “China Prepares To Bailout Russia” when we noted that a PBOC swap-line was meant to reduce the role of the US dollar if China and Russia need to help each other overcome a liquidity squeeze, something we first noted over two months ago in “China, Russia Sign CNY150 Billion Local-Currency Swap As Plunging Oil Prices Sting Putin.”

That will be our final goal." File Shan state, January 2000 30. Aerial of mountains in Shan State Yangon, 13 March 2004 31. Various of merchants looking at jade STORYLINE: Huge blocks of uncut jade and thousands of rubies, pearls and sapphires have gone on sale in Yangon, the capital of Myanmar. Twice a year the reclusive Southeast Asian country invites gem merchants and jewellers to buy some of the finest quality stones found anywhere in the world. The current event is expected to bring in 30 (m) million US dollars. But the significance of the Gems Emporium lies beyond its importance as a marketplace - it''s also one of Myanmar''s few sources of hard currency. At first glance, one could easily mistake the blocks for some ancient ruin. But the blocks and chunks of rock are pure, raw jade, cut from mines in Myanmar''s northern Kachin State. By the time the bidding begun they were put together into 1,200 lots, their total value estimated at about 16 (m) million US dollars. Some of the blocks of jade were immense. One alone was priced at more than three-quarters of a million US dollars, although the cost was quoted in euros. This was a snub to the United States, which has imposed trading sanctions on Myanmar. Merchants flock to the Gems Emporium from all over the world. Most, though, came from Hong Kong and mainland China. This year representatives from 509 companies have been invited. With an expert eye and a small torch, they checked for flaws or cracks. It''s the jade that brought the Chinese here. For them and their customers there is nothing on the market to beat the quality and range of the jade that Myanmar has to offer. It''s Myanmar''s fifth biggest earner of hard currency.

Two Record Breaking Diamonds To Go for Auction in Hong Kong

Two large diamonds are expected to break world records when they go under the hammer in Hong Kong in October. Auction house Sotheby's presented the two diamonds, including a 118.28 carat, egg-sized white diamond, the biggest ever to be auctioned off, to the media on Thursday (September 19). The stone mined from southern Africa in 2011 is expected to fetch $28 million in the upcoming auction. "This 118-carat diamond, the size, literally like a free-range egg, the weight is like a small tangerine. Actually it's quite heavy. Now our estimate is over HK$220 million, equal to over $28 million. We expect it will make a new world record for white diamond," said Terry Chu, deputy head of Jewellery Department at Sotheby's. Another highlight of the auction is a 7.59-carat round fancy vivid blue diamond, the largest diamond of its kind in the world graded by Gemological Institute of America. The rare round diamond is expected to sell at a pricetag of over $19 million. "The original rough, the shape is perfect enough to be cut into a round, a circular shape, as well as after cutting into a circular shape, it still holds the colour. And no matter the saturation, as well as the purity of the colour, it still hits the highest grade and be qualified as a fancy vivid blue. So it's actually very rare, and also this is the first time and the largest round fancy vivid blue, not only in the world and also is ever offered at auction," Chu said. Sotheby's chose Hong Kong as the place to auction off these two diamonds because the former British colony is set to be the most important city in the jewellery auction market, Chu said. The Chinese appetite for diamond jewellery is expected to double over the next decade, mining giant Rio Tinto said. Eliad Cohen, Chief Investment Officer of Novel Asset Management which specializes in rare diamonds investments, said diamonds are emerging as an upcoming alternative investment for the world's second largest economy. "I think that, what we see in the past few years, more and more Chinese looking at diamonds as an investment, not just a toy to wear it or for parties and things like that. Basically I think the Chinese typical culture is not show off, they're not looking to go around with big things. But definitely they're one of the biggest and the most important investors for this type of industry," Cohen said. The Sotheby's Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite auction offers over 300 lots with a total estimated value of over $110 million. The auction will take place in Hong Kong on October 7.
