Survey concludes Germans hold more gold than their central bank

In total, private individuals in Germany own around 8,918 tonnes of gold.

If one were to collect the precious metal from all the repositories in the different corners of the republic and combine them with the gold reserves of the Bundesbank, then this would result in an imposing treasure of 12,288 tons. That sounds huge, but that's 6.5 percent of the world's gold reserves.

A rare look inside the West Point Mint's massive gold vaults and coin operations

About an hour and a half's drive north from New York City lies a treasure -- the gold kind. But it's not one that you can go and find.

In fact, you can't get anywhere near it. Because this treasure belongs to the United States Treasury.

Nearly a quarter of the U.S. government's gold sits beneath a windowless building on the campus at West Point.

What's the Second Best Performing Asset Since 1999?

Some of you reading this right now can probably point to a few investments you made over the years that had more in common with black holes than you would care to admit.

Gold, I’m happy to say, is not among those investments, despite all the negative press it sometimes gets. The evidence keeps rolling in that the yellow metal has historically been a wise investment.

Basel 3: A Revolution That Once Again No One Noticed

Gold was considered as a reserve of the third category for all banks, from central to commercial ones, where the reserves were, first of all, in dollars and bonds of the US. The norms of Basel III demand an increase, first of all, in monetary reserves. This impeded the volumes of monetary resources of banks that could be used to carry out expansion, but it was a compulsory measure for saving the stability of a world banking system that showed to be insufficient in a crisis.

Venezuela removes eight tonnes of gold from central bank

Venezuela removed eight tonnes of gold from the central bank’s vaults last week, and the cash-strapped socialist state is expected to sell the bullion abroad as it seeks to raise hard currency in the face of U.S. sanctions, a lawmaker and one government source said.

The government source said the central bank’s reserves had fallen by 30 tonnes since the start of the year before U.S. President Donald Trump tightened sanctions, leaving the bank with around 100 tonnes in its vaults, worth more than $4 billion.

The inverted yield curve as a harbinger of higher gold prices

During the course of the past few weeks, we have heard much about the inverted yield curve in three-month and ten-year Treasuries as a harbinger of recessions. Missed in the press reports is the fact that it has also been a harbinger of higher gold prices.

Is Gold Still Liquid in Bullion Form?

You will find that gold bullion will also get caught up in a liquidity crisis in Europe where you will be unable to sell it even if you have purchased it with cash after taxes. The hunt for taxation is really destroying the world economy far more than people are aware and Europe is in first place.

Gold will survive long-term. But don’t count on it being available during the period before the crash and burn.
