If Silver Goes Down All Hell Will Break Loose In The Physical Market: Silver Investment Update



There simply isn't enough physical silver to deal with the demand of a fiat currency crisis. As the paper silver market pushes prices down, all hell will break loose in the physical market.

Isle of Man 2009 Tutankhamun Sand Triangle Coin

Struck by the Pobjoy Mint, the only official producers of coins for the Tutankhamun exhibition in London

• Legal tender coins of the Isle of Man
• Available in Proof fine 999.9 Silver and Proof fine 999.9 Gold

In 1922, Howard Carter shot to international fame when he discovered King Tutankhamun’s tomb and its legendary treasures. To coincide with the recent Tutankhamun exhibition in London, the Isle of Man issued a series of official commemorative coins – and, appropriately, the final coin honours Carter on the 70th Anniversary of his death.

The coin is a stunning pyramid shape. It shows a design from the wall of Tutankhamun’s tomb, with Tutankhamun himself in the centre. The sun disc at the top contains ancient sand that was collected from the entrance of Tutankhamun’s tomb.

Due to the coin’s unusual shape and the small amount of sand that was collected, the edition limits are exceptionally small. THE GOLD COIN HAS REACHED ITS ISSUE LIMIT. NO MORE GOLD COINS AVAILABLE.

Each coin is presented in a specially commissioned, beautifully crafted Pyramid presentation case.

Keith Neumeyer: The Silver Market Lacks Integrity

The Hera Research Newsletter is pleased to present an incredibly powerful interview with Keith Neumeyer, Chief Executive Officer, President and Director of First Majestic Silver Corp. (AG). Mr. Neumeyer began his career at the Vancouver Stock Exchange and worked in the investment community for 26 years beginning his career in a series of Canadian national brokerage firms including McLeod Young Weir (now Scotia McLeod), then Richardson Greenshields and then Walwyn Stogell McCuthchen (which became Midland Walwyn).

Mr. Neumeyer moved on to work with several publically traded companies in the natural resource and high technology sectors. His roles have included senior management positions and directorships in the areas of finance, business development, strategic planning and corporate restructuring. Mr. Neumeyer, who has listed a number of companies on the Toronto Stock Exchange, has extensive experience dealing with financial, regulatory, legal and accounting issues.

Hera Research Newsletter (HRN): Thank you for joining us today. Let’s begin by talking about silver supply and demand.

Keith Neumeyer: Silver mine production was around 736 million ounces in 2010. Demand was around 1 billion ounces. Scrap silver recycling and some government sales filled the gap. We’re at historic lows in terms of above ground silver. Eric Sprott recently said there are 1 billion ounces of triple nine silver left aboveground. Unlike gold, silver gets used. We’re at historic highs in supply when it comes to gold, but the exact opposite is true for silver.

World Silver Supply
(Click to enlarge)

HRN: Is there a deficit in terms of mine supply?

Keith Neumeyer: We’ve had a supply deficit for the past 13 years. 2009 was the first year we created equilibrium. We only went into a surplus in 2010, in terms of industrial and jewelry fabrication demand. The surplus mine supply was purchased by investors, obviously. A lot of mining companies are showing lower production because a lot of silver comes from base metals and, with lower base metals prices, it’s becoming more difficult. I don’t see any major supply drivers for silver in the next several years.

HRN: Do you expect more scrap silver to enter the market?

Keith Neumeyer: That’s what happened in 2009 when gold rallied over $1,200 and then corrected to below $1,100. It was primarily caused by scrap gold entering the market. I believe the same thing was happening for silver. We’ll see that again as the metals make new highs. It’s the same as a stock. You replace part of the shareholder base at different levels.

HRN: Are you optimistic about future demand?

Keith Neumeyer: Yes, I’ve been optimistic about silver since 2002 because silver is a strategic metal. I think it’s more important than gold.

HRN: Are there new applications that could increase demand?

Keith Neumeyer: We’re seeing all kinds of new applications. A recent report by Barclays forecast that 120 million ounces of silver will be used for solar power generation in 2012 versus 40 million ounces in 2009. The battery industry is growing as well. Zinc-silver batteries provide very stable capacity — their output doesn’t degrade like lithium batteries — and they deliver 40% more energy compared to nickel metal-hydride batteries. They’re safer than water-based chemical batteries because they don’t heat up or explode. They’re also mercury free and 95% recyclable. Lithium-ion batteries in cell phones, for example, need to be replaced after 12 to 18 months. I’m very optimistic about battery technology. There are also robotics and other applications on the horizon.

World Silver Demand
(Click to enlarge)

HRN: What’s your long term price target for silver?

Keith Neumeyer: Silver will reach a value based on its natural ratio of 15:1 with gold. I expect to see at least $2,000 gold and most likely $3,000 in the next 3 to 5 years, so silver will be between $130 and $200. It’s a big number from where we are today but that’s where I think we’re headed. We’re dealing with a market that needs to be corrected.

HRN: Isn’t the price of silver set by supply and demand?

Keith Neumeyer: I don’t think supply and demand has anything to do with the price, unfortunately. The world we live in today is a paper environment where silver is priced by financial circumstances. Banks, traders and investors around the world move markets to where they want them to be. Governments and commercials — big banks like HSBC and JP Morgan — all have a piece of the action. They alternately work together or sometimes against each other. All these forces price the metal. That’s one reason we’re seeing the volatility that we’re seeing today.

Silver Spot Price
(Click to enlarge)

HRN: How can supply and demand be irrelevant?

Keith Neumeyer: In short term trading, the price is financially driven. Eventually, markets do correct themselves over time. In the long run, supply and demand does have influence. That’s why the price will ultimately return to its natural ratio of 15:1.

HRN: How is the price of silver financially driven?

Keith Neumeyer: It has to do with the financial instruments that we trade in and with the fact that silver trades a billion ounces per day on the COMEX alone when there are 26 to 30 million ounces of silver available for delivery. With that kind of leverage, you just don’t have a proper market.

HRN: It has been reported that there are 100 ounces under contract for every ounce in the COMEX warehouse.

Keith Neumeyer: The governments, regulators and bullion banks have let the silver market get more and more leveraged. We’ve seen a lot of wealth destruction as a result of this leverage and we’re going to see a lot more until, finally, the governments decide to change the system.

HRN: Isn’t the COMEX guaranteeing market integrity, by raising margins, for example?

Keith Neumeyer: I don’t buy the argument on margin hikes at all.

HRN: Don’t margin hikes prevent dangerous asset price bubbles?

Keith Neumeyer: It’s not up to them to decide what is parabolic. They’re not investors themselves. They don’t have money in the market. They decide a bubble is going to happen if they don’t raise margins but no one knows when a bubble is forming. It is only apparent after it’s already happened. By hiking the margins, they create the appearance of a bubble bursting. They create the bubble. They create the proof that it was a bubble. If they let it alone, the market would stabilize by itself.

HRN: What should the Commodities and Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) do?

Keith Neumeyer: The job of the regulators is to protect the retail investor. That’s their only job. It’s not to protect the banks or the brokerage firms. The little guy is the primary taxpayer. Why were the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the CFTC put in place? They were put in place to protect retail investors. Prior to regulation, the banks controlled the market. Today, the banks control the market again. Who should control the market? Retail investors. Who’s protecting them? No one.

HRN: Are you saying that the CFTC does nothing while the COMEX caters to banks and brokerage firms?

Keith Neumeyer: Yes.

HRN: And the COMEX doesn’t serve retail investors?

Keith Neumeyer: No. Absolutely not.

HRN: Do you foresee a return to a free market in the future?

Keith Neumeyer: I’m an optimist. I believe one day that governments will rewrite the rules and force the regulators to protect investors. That’s where we were back in the ‘70s and that’s where I think we have to be again to correct the problems that have arisen over the past 40 years. Silver is being revalued. It’s going to affect a lot of people along the way and it will change the financial system. Ultimately, we’re going to have a new financial system and, hopefully, we’ll go back to natural markets, completely driven by supply and demand. It may take another 20 years but I think it will happen.

HRN: A new financial system?

Keith Neumeyer: If I’m wrong, the banks will run the world, even more so than they do today, 10 or 20 years from now. God forbid that we ever get there because that’s a one currency, one government world that would absolutely be a disaster for the human race. There would be no freedoms at all to move or to invest. It would be like having shackles on our ankles. There is a movement to go in that direction, unfortunately. There are a number of very wealthy people that want to see that. I hope that we can find the politicians to prevent that type of world from coming to pass.

HRN: Thank you for your time and for your candor.

Keith Neumeyer: It was a pleasure.

Silver to Surpass $50 in 2012


This past Wednesday night, experts met at the Silver Institute in New York City and speculated on the silver's forecast for the rest of this year through the end of next year. Bullish predictions ensued.

Yesterday's sharp price dip may be attributed to the fact that the SGE "announced an immient margin hike" overnight.

"The Shanghai Gold Exchange said it will raise margins on silver forwards to 18 percent from 15 percent from Monday if the silver contract hits its daily trade limit on settlement on Friday. The exchange said it would lift daily trade limits on silver forward contracts to 15 percent from 12 percent if the contract hits limit up or down on settlement on Friday."

Philip Klapwijk of Thomson Reuters suggested that the average silver price-per-ounce this year will run around $35.66. His short-term forecast through the end of 2011 is $35-$40 per ounce. And for 2012, Klapwijk anticipates prices surpassing the $50-per-ounce range by the conclusion of 2012.

According to Klapwijk's observation and research, overall market and economic conditions in the coming year will push-up growth and demand in the silver market.

Due to the financial outlook, silver investors' interest is set to remain strong, even “in spite of two major sell-offs.”

However, as mine production of silver continues to grow, it could be a negative development for the silver price outlook.

Klapwijk forecast a "large and growing fundamental market surplus" of silver of +/-230 million ounces this year.

Although silver's core fabrication demand (excluding coins) should rise next year, largely due to gains in industrial consumption, "it will nonetheless be exceeded by gains in production and recycling." However the substantial silver market surplus should be absorbed by silver investors, Thomson Reuters GFMS suggested.

Additionally, Thomson Reuters data reveals that silver coin minting could rise by 25% this year! This would be an all-time-record high for the Thomson Reuters GFMS data series.

But watch out for fake silver and gold jewelry this year...Thomson Reuters says the expect jewelry fabrication to increase a bit this year due to “substitution-led gains at the expense of gold.” On the other hand, they “anticipate further declines in jewelry fabrication silver demand” for the following year.

Economics Theory: JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs Sued Over MF Global Collapse

Reuters reports that Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup Inc. (C), Deutsche Bank (DB), Goldman Sachs (GS) and JPMorgan (JPM) were among the banks sued Friday afternoon in Manhattan federal court by two pension funds over losses on securities of broker-dealer IMF Global Holdings Ltd. (MF).

The complaint, which seeks to represent other shareholders in a class-action, or group suit, was filed by IBEW Local 90 Pension Fund and the Plumbers & Pipefitters’ Local #562 Pension Fund. In their complaints both funds state that the “registration statements and prospectuses for about $900 million of MF Global note offerings this year omitted how the New York based company was using high leverage, investing heavily in risky European sovereign debt, and not properly segregating client assets from its own.”

The complaint also said that the “banks helped draft the offering documents and sell the notes, collecting $21.2 million of fees”, but that their “failure to conduct an adequate due diligence investigation was a substantial factor” in MF Global’s collapse, as well as in defaults on the notes.”

The lawsuits seeks damages for investors “between February 3, 2011 and October 31, 2011 in MF Global securities, including its 1.875 percent convertible senior notes maturing in 2016, its 3.375 percent convertible senior notes maturing in 2018, and its 6.25 percent senior notes maturing in 2016.”

Other defendants in the complaint include several officials associated with MF Global, including former Chief Executive Jon Corzine.

MF Global Holdings filed for bankruptcy Oct. 31, 2011 after getting margin calls and listing debt of nearly $40 billion.

The Orangutan is characterised by its ape-like shape, shaggy red fur, long arms and grasping hands and feet. This ‘man of the forest’ is now only found on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra in south-east Asia.

The destruction of habitats through commercial logging, forest clearance for oil palm plantations and agriculture, have contributed to this animal’s need for protection. In addition, uncontrolled fires and human exploitation present further challenges. It is more important than ever to safeguard the future of this well-loved species.

Mike Maloney: When To Sell Your Gold And Silver? Price Means Nothing!

In this video Rich Dad Advisor Michael Maloney explains that Price has nothing to do with knowing when to sell your gold and silver! In fact it means nothing in terms of what you are measuring it against! It's how much VALUE does your gold and silver BUY you is the question!

And it's more than just the interest rates too. Although Gold and Silver crashed during the 1980's because the Fed raised interest rates, there are two more economic indicators that you need to know in order to invest properly in precious metals!

Another gold mine of information from Mike Maloney!

Do Retail Investors Drive Silver and Gold Prices with SLV and GLD?



I have suffered through several articles and listened to quite a few accomplished traders hypothesize (almost blindly) how retail investors were driving the price of silver and gold through SLV and GLD. They say "if you look at the flows in these etfs, you would see that retail investors were driving up the price of gold and silver." Flat out ridiculous, I could logically disprove this naive theory in a sentence or two, but first let us have some fun.


Part 1. Let us first take into account that GLD and SLV are only the most popular of the precious metals etfs. There are over 20 other gold etfs, at least 5 electronically traded notes (just in the US). There are 13 silver etfs not including SLV and a few etns like ETRACS CMCI Silver Total Return and Societe Generale Effekten Gmbh. All of these instruments on top of the attention grabbing, contemporary Sprott Physical Silver Trust (PSLV) and the Sprott Physical Gold Trust (PHYS). So I feel it is important to keep in mind GLD and SLV are but a part of a greater synthetic precious metals markets.

Part 2. Since the claims and and hypotheses state that retail investors were driving the price of gold and silver through GLD and SLV, let us look at the institutional ownership. GLD's institutional ownership is currently 42.7%. To put this figure in perspective, I will take the example of Exxon Mobile (XOM) which currently has an institutional ownership of 49.6%. It would not be a surprise for GLD to have a greater percentage of institutional ownership than XOM. The last time I looked up this figure for GLD it was around 50%. Is Exxon mobile largely referred to as a retail driven stock, no it is not, it is a giant $370 billion oil company.

Economics Theory: Market Turmoil Turns all Eyes Towards the Fed

Monday's dizzying stock market dive has heightened speculation that the Fed could take steps to ease market jitters that some fear could help topple a teetering economy into recession. The recovery is already sputtering amid weakening manufacturing activity, sluggish retail sales and European debt woes.

Bullion Up as Currency Debasement Accelerates

Gold in USD terms is 2.5% higher after the weekend US downgrade and is higher against all currencies and trading at USD 1,706.40 , EUR 1,195.90 , GBP 1,039.20, CHF 1,039.20 per ounce and 132,549.00 JPY. Gold’s London AM fix was USD 1,709.75, EUR 1195.21, GBP 1,040.94.

There has been massive intervention by the ECB in the Spanish and Italian bond markets. 10-year yields have plummeted by more than 12% from above 6% to 5.27% and 5.34% respectively.

Other peripheral bond markets have fallen but Portuguese and Irish yields are only slightly lower. Five-year CDS have also fallen sharply for Spanish and Italian debt but falls in other markets were slighter and the cost to ensure French debt increased by seven basis points.


Cross Currency Rates

There is increasing talk of a French downgrade and some are wondering why the UK has not been downgraded.

Gold is up 2.6% in euro terms to nearly EUR 1,200/oz which is not a ringing endorsement of the ECB’s intervention.

Non debase-able silver has surged nearly 4% and is back just below $40/oz.


European Bond Market Monitor

It is quite possible that there was also intervention in equity markets as well as European indices fell sharply on the open prior to sharp reversals and going positive early morning. If there was intervention (by the US Working Group on Financial Markets, also known as the “Plunge Protection Team”) in equity markets they were futile as equities have resumed their downward trend.

The FTSE, DAX and CAC are down 1.9%, 2.9% and 2.5% respectively and US futures are showing 2% to 3% losses.

Is this intervention another short term panacea in a long line of short term panaceas?

It certainly looks like it. Piling more debt on top of already humungous debt levels will prolong and likely deepen the global debt crisis.

It makes contagion more likely as the balance sheet of the ECB is now being infected by the peripheral European countries.

The electronic creation of hundreds of billions of euros to bail out bankrupt countries is currency debasement which has a long history of not working out to well.

What is needed is debt forgiveness and debt restructuring and a gradual deleveraging and downsizing of the balance sheets in the banking sector and financial system. Taxpayers should not be further burdened. This is unjust and will inevitably prolong and delay a recovery.

Those with little or no knowledge of financial, economic and most importantly monetary history continue to warn that gold is or may be a bubble. They should be urging diversification but alas do not understand diversification or gold.

They focus exclusively on the nominal dollar price and fail to consider the price in euros and other fiat currencies.

They do not adjust for the significant inflation of the last 31 years. Gold’s real record high in 1980 was $2,400/oz.

They do not compare gold’s price performance in last 10 years with that of its last bull market in 1970’s.

Considering gold purely in terms of price is misguided anyway as what is more important is gold’s value.

Gold’s value is as a safe haven asset that cannot go bankrupt, as financial insurance and as a store of value.

Many today know the price of everything and the value of nothing. This is especially the case with gold.

Australia Gold: Demand for Bullion at Fever Pitch

Gold-dispensing vending machines? Laws to make it legal tender? John Collett looks at the rise and rise of bullion.

The gold price is hitting record nominal price highs of more than $US1600 ($1450) an ounce, up from about $US300 10 years ago. And most analysts are forecasting the price will rise even higher, and challenge the all-time high of 1980, when it reached $US2400 in today's dollars.

International Forecaster July 2011 - Gold, Silver, Economy + More


World markets and especially US markets are in a state of uneasiness and it is only a matter of time before they degenerate further. The real question is will everything break loose between now and the end of the year? The answer in part is yes, and it is currently in process.

“The President’s Working Group on Financial Markets,” along with elitist insiders normally have the ability to make the stock and bond markets do what they want them to. That is, at least on a short-term basis. We believe the market is being deliberately taken down by them in order to impress upon politicians that if they do not extend the short-term cash debt limit that the market will fall even further and that in turn will reduce their ability to get reelected. If you do not think that is possible then you have no idea what is going on. At the present time with about a month to the August 2nd deadline the two political parties are nowhere near an agreement. As we draw closer to the deadline investors will become more and more concerned and the market will trend lower.

These problems that we predicted for the second half of the year are all coming together like a bad dream. This could very well be a reply of 2008, but for a different set of reasons. Obviously Wall Street knows something others do not know as they resort to large layoffs.

For months oil prices have tended higher. The official CPI is 3.6% when in reality it is well over 10%. Unemployment officially under U3 is 9.1%, when in reality it is 22.6%.

No solution has been found for Greece’s problems, even though an agreement has been made with lenders, and as an extension of that, we see euro, euro zone and European Union problems that probably are unsolvable.

Debt ratings for sovereign nations are falling like ten-pins, which we look at very skeptically. Why were not these ratings reduced by rating agencies some time ago? We see the rating agencies, as controlled by Wall Street, and we see no coincidence that these ratings are all being lowered almost simultaneously. We think these events are being timed to force debtor European nations to heel to European bankers’ demands. By example, it is obviously the intention of Europe’s Black Nobility, which controls such banking, to rape Greece financially and enter it into financial bondage for years to come and they intend as well to render the other five hopeless EU members into the same position.

Little has been done to repair the damage done by the credit crisis, which began in 2008. The financial sector and government has temporarily been kept from failure, but little else has been done. The situations in Europe and the UK are no better. Failure of a debt extension and or default by Greece could lead to a collapse of the world financial system, as we know it. The long-term looting by the Fed, the Bank of England, and many others, day-by-day is being exposed to the public by talk radio and the Internet and the elitists are powerless to stop it. We’d say it won’t be long before the whole world knows what they have been up too for a long time.

The exposure of these facts is affecting public confidence and many are saying, are we next? The entire financial sectors in the US, UK and Europe are now more vulnerable than ever and by the looks of recent economic reports things are looking worse. That is why Greece or debt extension is so important. Their failure could trigger panic. The Democrats in the US House are playing chicken and if a deal is not reached there will be no extension. Further to this China is slowing down and has major inflation problems and a real estate bubble and Japan has been devastated.

As we predicted the Feds will spend $900 billion in their QE2 program. It has injected $2.3 trillion into the financial system September of 2008. The federal government has added $1.7 trillion for a total of $4 trillion and no recovery has appeared. Over the next year $112 billion of the Fed’s government bond holdings will mature and they will use those funds to roll Treasury paper.

The Fed as well holds $914 billion in mortgage backed debt known as toxic waste, and $118 billion of debentures from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. They will maintain these levels until September. In July and August plans will be put in place to again increase money and credit in order to assist in the Treasury and agency markets and replace funds, some $850 billion that will not be forthcoming from Congress.

Real unemployment is 22.6%. That should move up to 22.8% to 23% by the end of the year.

The two political parties have been meeting for two months and have accomplished very little regarding the cash debt extension. If no compromise is reached the US credit rating will probably be lowered and interest rates will rise. Zero interest rates are still currently in place. It is not a pretty picture. As we predicted in May 2010, the second half of 2011 is going to fraught with problems.

Wall Street sees what we see, but they are not going to tell you what we will tell you. Their direction and thought process is what you have to watch. Why would the securities and banking business be planning big layoffs and payroll cutbacks? They obviously believe markets are headed lower and they see plenty of problems ahead. Wall Street is pessimistic and they should be because they see what we see. Except for gold and silver shares get out of the market as fast as you possibly can.

GOLD, SILVER, PLATINUM AND PALADIUM

On Wednesday spot gold rose $10.20, as August rose $11.90. Spot silver rose $1.12 to $34.75, as July rose $1.22. These results were in spite of the fact that the Greek party in power voted to sell out the Greek people. (Revolution may now very well follow.) On that news gold and silver and commodities were supposed to follow. Strange things are happening. This was the 5th test for both metals. The next move is upward. Greece bought a year for the insolvent bankers and nothing will improve. It will get worse. That makes Greek debt per capita $64,000 and US $257,000.

Americans, Brits and Europeans may look down their noses at Greeks, but their appalling fiscal state of affairs are just as bad if not worse and their day will soon be at hand. We have seen the march on the Greek Parliament, that is only the beginning as Spain, England, Ireland, Portugal, Italy, England and finally America experiences the same revolt against the financial terrorists known as bankers. Most sovereign world states are going to experience the same financial and economic bloodbath - all those fiat currencies re going to fail. Why do you think China, Mexico, Russia, India, Iran, Argentina, Thailand and others are buying gold? It is because they know their currencies will have to be backed by gold, or they will be worthless. Mexico may soon back their currency with silver, which is natural because it is the world’s second largest silver producer. Gold and silver are the only safe places for your wealth to be.

The total cost of the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Libya is $3.7 trillion and it could easily soon reach $4.4 trillion. This does not include long-term costs and obligations to wounded veterans and future war spending. What the elitists and their flunky politicians have done is appalling.

This statement is very important. The fed has approved an extension of their crisis-lending program that allows the ECB, European Central Bank, to borrow US dollars at will. That includes the central banks of Switzerland, England, Canada and Japan. The Fed can lend unlimited dollars it creates out of thin air perhaps forever. Yes, inflation will get much worse as a result.

Recently the US CPI hit 3.6% and today Canada admitted to 3.7%. The figures are bogus, but they will be 5-1/2% by year-end.

Gold and silver both have again formed reverse head and shoulders patterns, which is very bullish. That is why gold and silver shares in the HUI are again coming into their own again, as they again start to outperform bullion.

CANADA

Canada’s inflation rate unexpectedly accelerated in May to the fastest since March 2003, sparking the biggest gain in the country’s currency this month as investors increased bets the central bank will raise interest rates.

The consumer-price index rose 3.7 percent from a year earlier, Statistics Canada said today in Ottawa, exceeding all 24 forecasts in a Bloomberg survey of economists. The median estimate was for a rate of 3.3 percent in May, matching the increases in March and April.

Canadians’ confidence in the country’s economic prospects fell to its lowest in two years amid concern that the global recovery is stalling, according to a poll by Nanos Research.

The proportion of Canadians who predict a weaker economy in the next six months rose to 23.6 percent from 19.1 percent in March, according to Nanos’s quarterly economic survey. The share of Canadians who see a stronger economy fell to 29.2 percent from 30.3 percent. The Nanos Expectations Index, which also includes perceptions related to home prices, fell to 112.8 in the second quarter, the lowest since the second quarter of 2009.

Canada's housing market is in a bubble that's set to burst and prices could plunge by as much as 25 per cent, a major independent research firm warns.

“Housing valuations have lost all touch with fundamentals and household debt is at a record high,” economists at the research consultancy Capital Economics say in their most recent Canada Economic Outlook, issued Wednesday.

“Our fear is that, with the housing bubble now close to bursting and commodity prices retreating, Canada will go from leader to laggard.”

The report predicts a fall in house prices by as much as 25 per cent over the next three years.

A domestic housing boom coupled with high commodity prices worldwide have spared the economy the severe recession felt by other developed countries.

Canada’s economic success could become the thorn in its side as the threat of a downturn in the housing sector looms, the report says.

The firm says a burst housing bubble would shrink real estate investment and hurt consumption two things that would considerably slow economic growth.

This decline in consumption would mean a slowly rising unemployment rate as well, according to Capital.

The company says Canadian house prices are overvalued by approximately 25 per cent, close to excessive levels seen in the frothy U.S. market at its 2006 peak.

Over-building is already visible; the number of unoccupied houses and condos is at a record high. It closely resembles the 1994-95 housing slump, when the construction industry experienced a severe downturn.

The report forecasts falling house prices and smaller residential investment. Real estate currently makes up 6.8 per cent of Canada’s GDP. Lower prices would mean a hit to household net worth as property now accounts for one-third of a family’s total assets, the report found.

The firm expects the Bank of Canada to stay the course in the near term, as financial worries at home and abroad will keep interest rates at their current level for a while.

CHINA

Just a few days ago, China Premier Wen Jiabao pledged to help bailout European countries. Perhaps Wen should keep his powder dry for possible local government defaults in China.

Local govts run up huge debts, risk defaulting local governments had an overall debt of 10.7 trillion yuan ($1.65 trillion) by the end of 2010, said China's top auditor on Monday in a report to the National People's Congress.

He warned that some were at risk of defaulting on payments.

It was the first time the world's second-largest economy publicly announced the size of its local governments' debts. The scale amounts to more than one-quarter of its GDP in 2010, which stood at 39.8 trillion yuan

A Chinese manufacturing index fell to the lowest level since February 2009, signaling that the world’s second-biggest economy is cooling as export demand weakens and the government reins in credit to control inflation. The Purchasing Managers’ Index was at 50.9 in June compared with 52 in May.

Economics Theory: Gold Could Lose Glitter with End of US ‘Cheap Money’ Policy

Economics Theory: Gold Could Lose Glitter with End of US ‘Cheap Money’ Policy

Dodd-Frank Act Not to Impact Investor Ability to Own Gold, Silver


The Dodd Frank legislation in USA will not impact the individual investor's ability to own Gold and Silver but only restrict the ability of brokerages from providing investors the ability to trade in over the counter-the-counter futures including gold and silver futures, according to Gainsville Coins.

US government actions in 1933 had removed gold coins from circulation and made it illegal for US citizens to own gold but Dodd-Frank Act does not impose any such restrictions.

There are two venues to trade derivatives, including futures – The over the counter derivatives market, and exchange traded derivatives market. Over the counter derivatives are traded off an exchange. For precious metals investors, the CME is the main exchange for gold and silver derivatives, including futures and option. The legislation only impacts those trades that DO NOT occur on an exchange. Futures and options that trade on an exchange are not affected.

In an OTC futures transaction, the buyer and seller enter into an agreement to buy or sell gold at a predetermined price, quantity, and date. Like exchange traded derivative contracts, margin requirements are set to ensure that both parties will perform on their obligation to either buy or sell. However, unlike exchange traded futures, these transactions are not centrally cleared. This means that a failure to perform by one side of the transaction could result in economic harm to the other side of the transaction. This is known as counterparty risk. Futures traded on an exchange, like the CME, do not subject either party to counterparty risk, and this is the reason for the changes being made through the Dodd-Frank legislation.

During the financial crisis of 2008, OTC derivatives, specifically OTC derivatives tied to BBB tranches of subprime mortgages caused a near total financial meltdown when AIG was unable to perform on its obligation. AIG had written hundreds of billions of dollars in OTC credit default swaps on BBB tranches of subprime mortgage securitization. When these securities went down on the housing market implosion, AIG did not have sufficient cash to pay the buyers of this insurance. This is one of the main reasons for the Dodd-Frank Legislation. Because these derivative contracts were over –the-counter, and not centrally cleared, AIG's failure to perform on its obligation raised the possibility of a cascade of financial failures. The Federal Government was ultimately forced to intervene to stop the financial contagion. Removing the risk of counterparty failure, and thus moving much of OTC derivatives market onto an exchange, is one of the key drivers behind this legislation.

Finally, it should be noted that there are exceptions to this legislation. For example, if you can qualify as a Qualified Eligible Participant (QEP), you are exempt from this legislation. For example, to qualify as a QEP, you would need to show a net worth of $1 million in assets. Also if you can prove that you can satisfy the obligations created by an OTC futures transaction within 28 days, you would also be exempt. It is up to each brokerage house to determine whether an individual investor qualifies under these exemptions. As a final note, the Dodd-Frank legislation only impacts leveraged or margined OTC transactions. These changes go into effect on July 15th, 2011, Gainsville Coins said.

Chinese Central Bank Increasing Gold & Silver Panda Coin Production


According to the Chinese news agency Xinhua, the People´s Bank of China (PBC) announced at the beginning of the week an increase in the number of Panda gold and silver coins minted this year. Increasing production is necessary to meet the rapidly growing physical demand for the both gold and silver among the Chinese population.

Xinhua states that the Chinese central bank will increase production of the Panda gold coin with a weight of one troy ounce from 300,000 to 500,000 coins. In the case of 1/20, 1/10, 1/2, as well as 1/4 ounce coins, production will be raised from 200,000 to 600,000 coins.

The production of the silver Panda will be increased as well; the PBC has disclosed that issuance of one ounce silver coins will double from three million to six million pieces. Physical demand for gold and silver is rapidly growing in China, after inflation reached a new three-year high in the month of May. China‘s population is very concerned about rising domestic prices, with many Chinese shifting large parts of their disposable income and savings into precious metals. The same phenomenon is also evident in many other Asian countries.
