Gold Bullion: Useless in Greek Crisis?
Might your gold become useless to you in a Greek-style crisis...? ANCIENT ATHENS hoarded its silver and gold bullion coins upstairs above the Parthenon, according to one Canadian archaeologist, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault. Where are Greece's poor citizens holding their gold and silver today? Certainly not in Zurich, Singapore or anywhere else via BullionVault. We saw internet traffic from Greece rise 50% during the first half of this year from the Jan-June period of 2014. But new

Mea culpa on OCC derivatives
On Tuesday I posted on the latest US Office of the Comptroller of the Currency’s (OCC) quarterly report and how it showed a reduction in total precious metal derivatives. I took Zero Hedge to task for jumping the gun on posting before seeking further information but now I have to admit I was guilty of that myself, the result being I was wrong to claim of a 29% reduction in precious metal derivatives. Zero Hedge and I both made the same mistake, which was to assume that “precious metals” in Table

Gold Prices Fall amid fresh wrangling over Greek bail-out terms
GOLD PRICES fell Tuesday lunchtime in London, dropping to $1170 and losing 1.5% from yesterday's brief 4-session high as stock markets recovered and energy prices steadied amid fresh wrangling between Athens and its creditors over the bail-out terms being put to a referendum this weekend. The Euro held flat with last week's level around $1.12 on the FX market, helping pull the gold price in single currency terms down to €1042 per ounce, more than 4% below Monday's spike to 4-week highs.

This is at odds with Zero Hedge’s post first, ask questions later approach where they say that there was a “237% increase in the total amount of precious metals (which include gold) contracts in the quarter”.

Psalm 27:1 With the VIX soaring and the US equity markets seeing their first 2% correction in many moons, the capping on the precious metals was determined and obvious.

What is the Real Weight of Gold in the Global Economy? 
An article in the Swiss newspaper Bilan published last week states that the weight of gold in the global economy amounts to $172 billion.

This number comes from the World Gold Council, and it is based on the mining sector activities. However, this represents a very partial point of view: it doesn’t take into account gold sales as such, either for jewellery or for investm
