  The Gold-Backed-Oil-Yuan Futures Contract Myth
On September 1, 2017, the Nikkei Asian Review published an article titled, “China sees new world order with oil benchmark backed by gold”, written by Damon Evans. Just below the headline in the introduction it states, “China is expected shortly to launch a crude oil futures contract priced in yuan and convertible into gold in what analysts say could be a game-changer for the industry”. Not long after the Nikkei piece was released ‘the story’ was widely copied in sensational analyses throughout t

Oil for gold – the real story
Following an article in the Nikkei Asia Review, which reported China will shortly introduce an oil futures contract priced in yuan, there has been some confusion about what it means. The article pointed out that in combination with existing gold futures priced in yuan, an oil exporter to China contracting to accept yuan could use these two futures contracts to take delivery of physical gold in payment for oil.I was quoted in that article as follows:"It is a mechanism which is likely to appeal to

Tokenization of Gold
The Blockchain technology enables tokenization of gold. What does it mean for the precious metals market? Usually, investors consider precious metals and cryptocurrencies as substitutes, as the value of both asset classes depends on the level of faith in the national fiat currencies. However, a few cryptocurrencies backed by gold exist, potentially creating some synergies. For example, there is OneGram, which is a sharia-compliant cryptocurrency backed by gold. It means that each token is backed

Gold Readying to Rally
Gold suffered a sharp pullback this past month, spawning bearish sentiment.  Futures speculators fled on surging Fed-rate-hike odds and new stock-market record highs.  That pounded gold lower despite strong investment demand.  This healthy sentiment-rebalancing retreat has left gold ready to rally again.  Both its technicals and seasonals are very bullish, and futures speculators’ selling overhang has considerably abated. On September 7th, gold powered 1.1% hig

Hugo Salinas Price: The gold worm on the yuan hook
If China really starts facilitating an oil trade in yuan that are quickly convertible to gold in Shanghai, Hugo Salinas Price writes today, oil sellers will not be the only ones interested in such transactions. As the gold price rises from increased demand in the oil trade, Salinas Price writes, other sellers of commodities probably will start wanting gold in exchange as well. Salinas Price, president of the Mexican Civic Association for Silver, concludes: "The implications I see for the Chines

The upcoming increase in interest rates
Last week, both Janet Yellen of the Fed and Mark Carney of the Bank of England prepared financial markets for interest rate increases. The working assumption should be that this was coordinated, and that both the ECB and the Bank of Japan must be considering similar moves.Central banks coordinate their monetary policies as much as possible, which is why we can take the view we are about to embark on a new policy phase of higher interest rates. The intention of this new phase must be to normalise

A Never Ending Supply of Oil/Yuan/Gold Backed Contracts - Rory Hall
Another article about the oil/yuan/gold contract with ZERO source links to the contract or providing the name/department of the Chinese official that is supposed to be making this announcement. How can something change anything when there is zero substance? We published the contract and the futures contract that is on the Shanghai International Energy Exchange – click here – There is zero use of the word gold; there is zero information about gold being used in any form for this contract.

Bullion Star's gold demand charts for September
Bullion Star's gold demand charts for September, published yesterday, suggest that gold withdrawals from the Shanghai Gold Exchange for 2017 will exceed 1,900 tonnes, signifying fairly strong demand. Russia, Bullion Star adds, seems likely to surpass China in officially reported gold reserves by April 2018, though of course China is believed to have much more gold in accounts controlled by the government than it reports publicly. Bullion Star says physical gold holdings by "transparent" gold f

The fiat money quantity (FMQ) 
Summary : This paper seeks to establish a measure of currency quantity that helps economists identify and estimate the risk that confidence in fiat currencies might be significantly eroded or even vanish altogether. It is this phenomenon that was referred to in the great European currency inflations of the 1920s as Katastrophenhausse, or a crack-up boom, when ordinary people lose all confidence in a fiat currency, disposing of it as rapidly as possible instead preferring ownership of goods.This is

Bitcoin vs Dollars: Which One is a Fraud? Which One is a Ponzi Scheme?
Jamie Dimon, JP Morgan CEO, made quite a headline splash last week when he proclaimed “Bitcoin ‘is a Fraud“. Is Bitcoin a fraud? Or are dollars, euros, yen, and yuan a collective set of frauds? Which, if any are Ponzi schemes?
