American Silver Eagle Bullion Coins
American Silver Eagle Bullion Coin - The American Silver Eagle Bullion Coin is the<br>
Official Silver Bullion Coin of The United States of America.<br>

The coins are comprised of a metal alloy 99.93% silver and .07% copper.<br>
The coins are produced annually and certified by the U.S. Mint.<br>
They are sold and distributed by authorized dealers throughout the country.<br>
They are backed by the full faith of the U.S. Congress.<br>

<br>
There were two different designers/engravers for the American Silver Eagles.<br>
The obverse (front) designer was Adolph A. Weinman, which shows Walking Lady Liberty<br>
in all of Her Glory.<br>
This design was originally used on Weinman’s Walking Liberty Half Dollar,<br>
which produced by the Mint from 1916-1947.<br>
Weinman also designed the Mercury dime.<br>
Wienman studied at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in Manhattan, NY<br>
along with another famous designer, Augustus St. Gaudens. American Silver Eagle Bullion Proof Coin - The American Silver Eagle Bullion Coins are the<br>
main instruments of choice for investment purposes.<br>
If you want to purchase physical silver bullion directly,<br>
I highly recommend the Silver Eagles.<br>
They are aesthetically pleasing as well as they are a store of value.<br>
As opposed to The American Silver Eagle Bullion Proof Coins,<br>
which are more for numismatic or collectors value.<br>
The proofs, with their mirror finish, are even more beautiful than the Bullion Coins.<br>
The U. S. Mint introduced a third coin,<br>
the American Silver Eagle Uncirculated Coins, in 2006<br>
which are also for numismatic or collectors value.

The End of Dollar Hegemony

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Hegemony is the dominance of one group over other groups, with or without the threat of force, to the extent that,
for instance, the dominant party can dictate the terms of trade to its advantage; more broadly,
cultural perspectives become skewed to favor the dominant group.
Hegemony controls the ways that ideas become "naturalized" in a process that informs notions of common sense.

From March 03, 2004
"After nearly 20 years of a declining gold price—historically, the length of the average bullion cycle—it appears that in late 2003, the yellow metal entered a multi-year uptrend. We firmly believe that SmallCap Digest readers should seriously consider some exposure to the junior mining/gold market. Spot Gold traded at $260 in mid 2001 and is currently trading in the $400 range-- a net gain of 53%.
While a decent move, we feel that there is still significant upside for the bullion price and, more importantly, junior mining stocks."... Click to read entire article at SmallCap Digest.


Prior to 1973 gold was fixed at $35 a Troy ounce, and has since been as high as $873 a Troy ounce.
Supply / Production Considerations
The Supply of Silver is based on two facts, mine production and recycled Silver scraps.
Unfortunately, mines throughout the world are depleting... and production cannot keep up with demand.
Fifteen countries produce approx. 94 percent of the worlds Silver from mines.
The most notable producers are Mexico, Peru, the United States, Canada and Australia.
Mexico, the largest producer of Silver from mines, is estimated to have produced 86.2 million ounces in 1998.
Peru, the world’s second largest producer of Silver, is estimated to have produced almost 67 million ounces in 1998,
while the United States is estimated to have produced 53.3 million ounces.
Silver is often mined as a byproduct of other base metal operations, which accounts for approx. four-fifths of the mined Silver supply produced annually.
Known reserves, or actual mine capacity, is fairly evenly split along the lines of production.
The other major source from Silver is from refining, or scrap recycling.  Because Silver is used in the photography industry, as well as by the chemical industry, the Silver used in solvents and the like can be removed from the waste and recycled.  According to the 1998 World Silver Survey, approximately 152.2 million ounces of Silver were made available by recycling.  This represents roughly one- third of the Silver estimated to be produced in 1998.  The supply of Silver grew only marginally in the last year according to industry estimates, but the total supply of Silver from scrap has increased dramatically in the last decade as more advanced methods of recycling have been developed.

The United States recycles the most Silver in the world, accounting for roughly 43.6 million ounces.  Japan is the second largest producer of Silver from scrap and recycling, accounting for roughly 27.8 million troy ounces in 1997.  In the United States and Japan, three-quarters of all the recycled Silver comes from the photographic scrap, mainly in the form of spent fixer solutions and old X-ray films.

Total world mine production is estimated to follow the same trends as those for Gold and Platinum.  Total mine production is estimated to decrease by three to five percent in the next three years as producers concentrate more on cost saving and efficiency increasing techniques as opposed to new exploration and production.  The trend towards increasing productivity and profitability may decrease the short-term supply of Silver in the near future, but overall it should have positive effects on the industry as a whole.
 


The second worst year was 1975, the year when Americans regained their "right" to own Gold for the first time since 1934.
China. The Chinese government is looking to add to its gold reserves. For the first time since 1949, Chinese citizens are allowed to buy gold.

I've been trading silver for over 15 years.
I invested USD $2,000.00 in COMEX silver options in March 1993 when silver was at USD $3.50 the all time low.
I got in 5 years earlier than Warren Buffett. Better to be 5-10 years early than 1 second late.
The 4.00 strike calls were dirt cheap, selling for around $100.00 each.
I made of profits in silver and have been since.

Looking to the future when will it be time to distribute the silver and gold and palladium platinum and cobalt and rhodium and copper nickel lead etc which we have been accumulating for the last 11 years.
The answer is never.
In the real world though:
That time will be when you start hearing about the raging bull market in precious metals on CNBC or your local news and reading about it in your local newspapers.

"Annus Horribilus" - Gold In 1997
1997 was the third worst year for $US Gold since the price became subject to market forces in 1971. The worst year was 1981, when Gold was coming off an $US 850 blow off high the previous year and battling 20% plus interest rates. The second worst year was 1975, the year when Americans regained their "right" to own Gold for the first time since 1934.

1997 has to be broken up into two halves. In the first half of 1997, stock markets everywhere - including Asia - were booming and Gold was sliding very slowly in terms of most currencies.

The second half of 1997 was when the Asia "flu" hit the world's markets. What started as a currency crisis in Thailand in July had, by the end of the year, expanded into a global financial crisis of unprecedented proportions.

The dividing line between these two six-month periods can be neatly drawn by the hand over of Hong Kong back to China on July 1, 1997. Hong Kong was the last Asian "nation" to be governed by a foreign power. Within weeks of this hand over, the 30-year era of the Asian "Tiger Economies" was over.

Here are the signal events of 1997 - especially the second half of 1997:

March 25 - US Fed raises rates by 0.25% to 5.5%. This is the only rise for 1997
Mid June - Denver G-7 meeting. US boasts its economic "management" to the annoyance of Asian and European guests.
Late June - Japan's Hashimoto threatens to sell US bonds and buy Gold
July 2 - Aussie Reserve banks announces (already completed) sale of 167 Tonnes of Gold.
Early July - Thai Currency crisis hits stock market and spreads quickly throughout S.E. Asia
Aug. 6 - Dow hits what proves to be the high for the year - 8259 points.
October - Asian crisis hits Hong Kong, Korea and Japan. Plummeting currencies and markets. In the U.S., the Dow falls 1000 points in less than a week before recovering.
Nov. - Dec. - IMF moves in to offer bail-outs. Gold sell of steepens. U.S. Dollar, universally regarded as THE safe haven, surges. Gold falls almost $US 60 to its lowest level since 1979.
End of year - Korea within days of bankruptcy. Japanese market in free fall. Asian currencies crashing. Gold anchored firmly below $US 300.
In 1981, Gold's worst year, the world was locked in recession. In 1975, Gold's second worst year, the world was locked at what was described as "stagflation" - rising (price) inflation and rising unemployment. This was an economic phenomenon held to be "impossible".

In 1997, Asia went into an economic and financial death spiral which can only be compared to what happened to the world in the Great Depression of the 1930s. But this was not a worldwide phenomenon. In Europe, markets boomed all year. In the U.S. markets boomed, the economy boomed, unemployment hit 30 year lows, and the Dollar became the most sought after investment in the world.

On November 26, 1997, the spot future Gold price closed below $US 300 (at $US 296) for the first time since March 15, 1985. Gold ended 1997 at $US 289.90. The $US 300 "floor" which had supported Gold ever since it first rose above that level in July 1979 had now become a "ceiling"

Rare gold coins combine the advantages of precious metals with the added features of the collectibles market.  In other words, the value of a rare coin is only partially based on its bullion content:  its value is primarily based on demand from the hundreds of thousands of investors and collectors worldwide.  Rare coins offer a number of key advantages to investors seeking to diversify into hard assets.
Key Advantages that bullion cannot match:

Extremely high value in a portable, convenient and liquid form.

Not subject to broker reporting or government confiscation.  In 1933, the U.S. government seized all gold bullion held by its citizens.  The right of Americans to own gold bullion was not returned for over 40 years, and in part, was accomplished throughout the efforts of our founder, James U. Blanchard III.  Rare coins were never part of this confiscation, and those who held $10 gold pieces throughout the period, for example, found that their value had increased more than sixfold.

There are few assets which can still be accumulated with privacy.  Fortunately, rare coins remain one of the few truly private asset categories.

Rare coins have historically shown great strength in a good bullion market, yet retain their value well and have often appreciated in times of falling bullion prices.

Current third-party certification and grading protects buyers, and allows sight-unseen trading over a nationwide computer exchange.

Favorable tax treatment - Capital gains on coins can only be taxed at liquidation.

Educational and fun to collect - Many investors find themselves drawn to the fascinating world of rare coin collecting.

Russian Central Bank Gold Reserves to Double

The Central Bank of the Russian Federation

Central Bank stops supporting dollar
13:20 2004-10-22
The weighted average dollar exchange rate was 29 RUR/USD in the first 90 minutes of trade at a special session today.
Thus, the official dollar rate for October 23-25 will decrease by RUR0.12.
This is the most considerable one-day drop of the dollar against the ruble since late April.
The low on the deals was even 28.95 RUR/USD at the UTS.
According to commercial bank dealers, the Central Bank has not supported the dollar despite a large selling of dollars by market participants.

Banks sold over $436m at a special session at 11:30 a.m. Moscow time.
Yesterday, the trade volume was just $19m at the UTS at the same time.
The average lot of dollars to be sold was $1.7m in the first 90 minutes of trading.

A Bank of Moscow expert told RBC TV that the trade volume on
MICEX including a special session for today deals almost reached $1bn in the first 30 minutes of trading.
The expert said that the Central Bank's activities could be attributed to the dollar's decrease
on international exchanges and growth in the gold and currency reserves in Russia.
However, the Central Bank's leaving the market at the end of the week was quite unexpected.
The specialist thinks that the Central Bank is currently concerned about its obligations on preventing inflation.

Alexey Kudrin Sends the Dollar Down
“the dollar is being volatile and cannot be considered a reserved currency for Russia.”
Apr. 24, 2006
Russian Financial Minister Alexey Kudrin attended sessions of the World Bank, the IMF and G7’s financial authorities late last week.
The minister’s trip to Washington can be called extremely fruitful.
He brought the dollar down against the euro, quarreled with IMF director Rodrigo de Rato,
promised access to Russia’s strategically important oil reserves for American companies,
announced solving the problem of the stabilization fund’s money and
declared Russia would become the Great Seven’s full-fledged member in 2046 – 2056.
The minister’s visit to the United States will be continued in New   York today
where he is expected to call at the New York Stock Exchange.
The U.S. dollar was down 45 points, to $1.2360 against €1 late last Friday at the London Exchange.
Sources of Kommersant in Washington unanimously attributed the decline to Alexey Kudrin’s statements.
Coming for a session of G7’s finance ministers as an observer,
the Russian finance minister started his U.S. visit by declaring that
“the dollar is being volatile and cannot be considered a reserved currency for Russia.”

Russia's foreign reserves to have larger euro share   11:11 2005-03-23
According to a statement issued by the department of foreign and public relations of the
Central Bank of the Russian Federation, the bank has increased the share of the euro in the
so-called two-currency basket of currencies of the foreign reserves to 20%
The euro previously accounted for 10% of the foreign reserves.
The new structure of two-currency basket of currencies presently
comprising   0.2 euro and 0.8 U.S. dollar came into effect on March 15th, 2005.

Last week's changes to increase the euro share in the two-currency basket of currencies
reflect measures to ensure the stability of foreign reserves and equalization of exchange rate
of the ruble to the U.S. dollar and other foreign currencies.
The changes were implemented in line with the adjustment of the foreign
exchange market players to new conditions of the exchange rate fluctuations.


Dollar too unstable to be reliable - Russian minister
21:25 | 21/ 04/ 2006
WASHINGTON, April 21 (RIA Novosti) - Russia cannot consider the dollar
as a reliable reserve currency because of its instability,
the finance minister said Friday.
"This currency has devalued by 40% against the euro in recent years,"
Alexei Kudrin told a news conference in Washington on the occasion of  the
opening spring session of the International Monetary Fund.
According to the Central Bank of Russia, the dollar accounted for 70% of Russia's gold and currency reserves,
euro for 25% and other assets for 5% in late 2005. As of April 14, 2006, the reserves were $212 billion.

Russian Central Bank could increase gold in reserves
21:01 | 24/ 11/ 2005
MOSCOW, November 24 (RIA Novosti) -
The Russian Central Bank could increase    the share of gold in the national
gold and currency reserves, a senior bank   official said Thursday.
First Deputy Chairman of the Central Bank Alexei Ulyukayev said the
bank would be purchasing gold "on all markets on which it is available,"
meaning both domestic and foreign markets.
He also said the bank has not been increasing the share of gold
in the past few years and confirmed a $60-billion increase in
gold and currency reserves by year's end.
On November 22, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he was
in favor of putting more precious metals in the Central Bank's
gold and foreign currency reserves.

Why does Russia need Stabilization Fund?
19:38 | 15/ 05/ 2006
MOSCOW. (RIA Novosti economic commentator Nina Kulikova)
Russia's profits from its oil and gas exports started to grow
with the rising prices on global markets several years ago.
The significant flow of petrodollars into the country necessitated
the creation in 2003 of a special fund to keep extra returns from oil sales.
It was named the Russian Stabilization Fund and was designed to
save petrodollars for the future when oil prices fall bringing Russian profits down.

The Stabilization Fund accumulates funds if the price for
Russian Urals oil exceeds $27 per barrel. In March-April 2006,
the average Urals oil price was $60.9 per barrel. Unsurprisingly,
the Stabilization Fund has been growing dynamically. As of May 1, 2006,
it was estimated at $65 bln. According to the
Russian Economic Development and Trade Ministry,
it may accumulate over 100 bln euros by this year's end.

At the same time, it has long been debated what to spend
the money on. Some Russian experts believe it is pointless
accumulating the money instead of making it work.
For example, for upgrading the economy.
Russian Economic Development and Trade
Minister German Gref said the money could be
invested in infrastructure and innovative projects.
Others are categorically opposed to using the Fund
on the Russian market fearing inflation.
This is the current official position of Russia's financial authorities.
However, an exception was made in 2004,
when it was decided to inject a part of the capital
into the Russian Pension Fund and pay off the country's foreign debts ahead of time.

Late in April, the Russian authorities finally decided how
to use the Stabilization Fund. Under a government resolution,
its capital can be regulated in two ways. First, it could be
converted in foreign currency - U.S. dollars, euros, or British pounds
- to be deposited in the Russian Central Bank.
Second, it could be invested in bonds of 14 countries:
Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Greece,
Ireland, Italy, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Great Britain and the United States.

This is a key decision for Russia. Until recently,
the Stabilization Fund money had been kept idle
provoking numerous debates on whether to spend it or not.
The government resolution finally authorized its use, though
not as effectively as many had expected.
Foreign bonds are not very safe, though they do pay
a 4-5% interest a year. The index is much lower
than the returns from shares in foreign private
corporations. However, the Russian Finance Ministry
has not allowed converting the Stabilization
Fund money into shares so far because the
latter are more risky assets. As a result, the
official stand is as follows. Keeping the
Stabilization Fund money intact is of
paramount importance now,
and making profit from it is secondary.

However, the Finance Ministry is likely to
expand the range of instruments for
investing the Stabilization Fund money.
This practice is widely used in the West:
for example, money from the Norwegian Oil Fund or the Kazakh National Fund can be converted into shares.

Shanghai Gold Exchange
Whomever said they don't ring a bell at the bottom was right, they bang a gong.-Shanghai Gold Exchange
Whomever said they don't ring a bell at the bottom was right,
they bang a gong.

Since the founding of new China in 1949, the production,
sale and processing of gold was strictly controlled and monopolized
by the government in compliance with state plan, while private trading of gold was totally forbidden.
In April 2001, the central bank announced the abolishment of the monopoly system and the forming of a gold exchange in Shanghai.
As China is currently moving to a market economy, the old system has become increasingly irrelevant because it deprived gold enterprises of both pressure and vigor.
On Nov. 28, 2000 last year, the Shanghai Gold Exchange went on a trial run.

Growing over-the-counter gold trading a legal gray area in China 09:51 PM 2006.06.07 Growing over-the-counter gold trading a legal gray area in China Shanghai. May 30,2006. INTERFAX-CHINA - Many Chinese companies engaging in over-the-counter (OTC) gold trading are operating in legal limbo as current options cannot satisfy demand. The Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) is the only institute authorized by the government to conduct gold trades. Those gold trades can only be carried out among SGE members, including banks and gold refiners and clients. Many domestic gold investment companies (gold dealers) that are not members of the SGE, directly conduct OTC trades, which are over the telephone or by computer on the overseas markets. Those companies establish online trading systems for individual customers or institutional investors to trade gold in a line with the international gold market, but not through the SGE. Zhang Yongtao, secretary general of China Gold Association (CGA) told Interfax Tuesday that China has not published any regulations recognizing gold dealers or gold brokers to carry out over-the-counter trades. He noticed that more and more OTC trades are emerging in China. "It is only legal if those gold investment companies consign members of the SGE to trade gold on the SGE, because the SGE is the only authorized gold trade market in China," he said. He said that trading platforms on the SGE cannot satisfy the diversity of investment demand right now. "To broaden gold markets in China, Shenzhen and Beijing had planned to set up gold exchange centers, but those plans were halted. I have to say that the Chinese government is still very cautious to open up the gold market," he said. Huang Hanjun, vice president of Xihanzhi International Gold Co. Ltd., a gold investment company in Beijing said few channels for gold investment on the SGE forced his company to find other means to serve individual clients. Xihanzhi is not a member of the SGE. Individual clients cannot directly trade gold on the SGE, but can buy or sell gold bars from banks or jewelry retailers. Individual spot gold trades and gold passbook trades through banks are booming in China since gold prices are extraordinarily high. According to Xihanzhi's website, clients can place a forward contract of gold bars (Au 99.99) by paying the margin. The company charges RMB 310 (USD 38.75) for each 100 ounces as a handling fee. The whole trading process is done on the company's own system with prices offered from the international market. Huang said the company's business conforms to the country's gold trade regulations. He said the company's gold bars were bought on the SGE. Jiang Jianhua, an official with Shanghai Qianjiaxin Gold Investment & Management Co. Ltd., told Interfax that the OTC gold trade is still a very grey area in China. "Most individual clients find SGE handling fees (0.1% to 0.2% of the total payment) for gold bar delivery high. Furthermore, banks and jewelry retailers also charge high handling fees when they repurchase gold bars from clients, which hinders individual clients from investing more money," Jiang said. Qianjiaxin is a SGE client and conducts Au (T+D) gold trades for its individual clients. He said OTC gold trades would be more common in China in near future, as the country is now opening up gold markets to track international markets and as the SGE prepares for gold futures. "The Chinese government will eventually approve the OTC trades, and no doubt more and more investment companies will emerge in the future," he said. An anonymous industry insider said most of gold investment companies in China are doing OTC gold trades for their clients. "Those companies have a good connections with China's central government, so they can be protected without any legal support," he said. He said many Hong Kong gold investment companies have entered the Chinese gold market and participate in OTC gold trades. He declined to name of some Hong Kong companies, but he said those companies were also backed by the central government. As the world's largest gold exchange, the London Bullion Market allows over-the-counter trades. Investors can apply to be gold dealers or brokers for OTC trading.

China slams dollar reliance 27/06/2006 11:56 AM http://www.fin24.co.za/articles/companies/display_article.asp?Nav=ns&lvl2=comp&ArticleID=1518-1783_1958691 China eases forex rules Yuan makes biggest one-day gain China sticks to currency reform China 'currency manipulator' China revalues its currency China billionaires jump to 10 Beijing - Countries around the world should gradually rely less on the dollar for trade and their foreign exchange reserves, a Chinese central bank official said in comments that pushed the dollar down against the yen. Analysts say China has been gradually diversifying away from dollar assets in its foreign exchange reserves, the world's largest, but fears of a collapse in the US currency will prevent it from making any dramatic shift. "Internationally speaking, the situation of over-reliance on a certain country's currency for international trade, settlements and reserve assets should be gradually changed," Wu Xiaoling, deputy governor of the People's Bank of China, said in remarks reported by the official Financial News on Tuesday. Wu did not specifically refer to the dollar by name, but it is the world's main reserve currency and the one in which the bulk of trade is conducted. Reason to sell Analysts said the comments were too general to signify any concrete change in policy. "The central bank is not going to give you a hint in terms of direction of investment before they really do anything, so I don't read too much into this sort of general remarks," said Qu Hongbin, economist with HSBC in Hong Kong. Still, dealers took the comments as a reason to sell the dollar, whose long-term strength relies partly on central banks' willingness to stock it as their main reserve currency. It fell by 03:08 GMT to ¥115.95 from ¥116.12 prior to the comments. Last year, central bank chief Zhou Xiaochuan was cited in state media as urging domestic companies to use non-dollar currencies, such as euro and Japanese yen, in foreign trade and investment, to reflect more diverse trading and investment patterns. Some government economists have said China should convert some of its foreign exchange reserves, which hit $875.1bn at the end of March, into gold to hedge against weakness in the dollar. Trade surplus Asian central banks have amassed about $2.8 trillion in foreign exchange stockpiles. Wu was cited by the paper as saying that Asian countries needed to hold large amounts of foreign exchange reserves to allow them to deal with liquidity crises because they could not be assured of timely help from the international community. The newspaper also cited Wu as saying a stronger yuan alone could not correct China's large trade surplus with the US. The Sino-US trade gap was the result of global resource allocation by multinational companies and needed to be addressed through the combined efforts of the US and Asian countries, she said. "Such trade imbalances cannot be resolved simply by adjusting the exchange rate. It should be mainly resolved by adjusting the economic structure," Wu was quoted as saying. Pressure mounting China faces pressure, especially from the US, to allow a faster rise for the yuan, which critics say is significantly undervalued, making Chinese exports unfairly competitive. Beijing revalued the yuan by 2.1% and scrapped a dollar peg for a managed float last July, but the currency has strengthened only 1.3% since. China reported a trade surplus with the US last year of $114.2bn, while Washington put the figure at $201.6bn, largely because it counts goods shipped through Hong Kong as coming from China. China has pledged to allow greater flexibility for the yuan over time, but has stressed that it needs to be careful about the implications that could have for employment and the country's financial system.

Chinese shares tumble by 5.33%, biggest fall in 4 years(2006/06/07) www.chinaview.cn 2006-06-07 15:16:23 A stockholder walks past a large electronic board showing stocks prices chart in a stock house in Shanghai June 7, 2006. The Composite Stock Index on the Shanghai Stock Exchange closed at 1,589.55 points Wednesday, down 90 points from the previous close.(Xinhua Photo) BEIJING, June 7 (Xinhua) -- Chinese shares closed 5.33 percent down on Wednesday, the biggest daily fall in four years, amid concerns about short-term market prospects and in response to continuous sharp falls on neighboring stock markets, including Hong Kong and India. The Composite Stock Index on the Shanghai Stock Exchange, which comprises yuan-denominated A shares and foreign-currency B shares, closed at 1,589.55 points, down 89.58 points. The drop is the biggest daily dive since Jan. 28, 2002, when it tumbled by 91.93 points, 6.33 percent. The major index of Shenzhen Stock Exchange, the Shenzhen Component Index, was down 199.16 points to close at 4,095.32 points. Prices of 1,184 shares, out of the country's 1,370 domestically listed firms, were down. Prices of 56 shares were up and one remain unchanged. The remaining shares were suspended for trading for an ongoing State share reform or shareholders' session. Analysts with Beijing Shoufang Securities Co. said the stumble was mainly caused by profit-taking after the significant rises during the past year, with China's major stock index up by 70 percent. The Composite Stock Index on the Shanghai Stock Exchange, the country's major stock index, was near 1,700 points earlier this week after it hit a six-year low of 998 points on June 6, 2005. The resumption of initial public offering (IPO) last month after a one-year suspension is also considered a negative factor in the short run as IPOs would result in a massive outflow of cash from the stock market to those firms listed on the exchange without sufficient capital inflow, dealers said. Analysts said several firms, including the Bank of China, the country's second biggest commercial bank, announced plans to go public domestically. The bank plans to issue no more than 10 billion shares on the Shanghai exchange later this month, just after it made its IPO debut on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange on June 1. The analysts said China's recent moves to curb rapid hikes of housing prices through a package of real estate policies, and major downward fluctuation of commodity prices on the international markets were also blamed for the fall in price of real estate and commodity firms on the Chinese stock markets. Prices of some firms specializing in titanium, gold, copper and other non-ferrous metal production were down by about 30 percent after their prices tripled in the past year, mostly driven by rapid price rises of commodity futures on the international markets. The analysts said the regulator, the China Securities Regulatory Commission, is believed to expect stock markets to stabilize by resuming IPOs and approving a growing number of IPOs applications. Some institutional investors adopted a defensive strategy in response, dumping those shares for fat profits. The regulator did not want to see bubbles getting bigger and bigger as some share prices have doubled or tripled with the support of fundamentals, explained the analysts. They said the IPOs would help cool down the speculation in the markets. The Chinese stock markets rose to their highest points in more than 18 months earlier this week with the Shanghai Composite Stock Index at 1,678 points on Tuesday after exceeding 1,500 point and 1,600 point levels since May 1. The index was 998 points on June 6, 2005 and it has jumped by about 60 percent since then. Xu Hui, a securities analyst, said the drastic fluctuations on the international capital market also had a chilling effect on the Chinese markets. He said the Hang Seng Index on the Hong Kong stock exchange was down by 1,500 points in two weeks while the Indian stock market recorded a daily fall of up to 15 percent recently. The Chinese markets are unlikely to be immune from the international markets as China is increasingly open to the outside. Many analysts are concerned about the market prospects. Analysts with Shenyin & Wanguo Securities Co. said Wednesday's stumble indicates the beginning of a medium-term of downward fluctuations, while others say the short-term readjustment means chances of investment in this bull market cycle. Long Yun, an analyst with Hexun Information Co, said the stock prices are likely to stabilize after drastic falls. The coming IPOs will bring quality firms with attractive values to the Chinese markets step by step, adding new blood to expand the scale and improve the value of the markets, he said.

Iran – A Major Gold Market in Hiding
By Nigel Desebrock, Director, Grendon International Research Pty Ltd (PDF)

A heightened sense of national
insecurity following the US-led
invasion of Iraq have all
contributed to the country’s
growing interest in gold.

Import duty on gold bars – The 4% duty
on official bar imports, applied since March
2003 on bars imported for domestic sale by
the Central Bank and by banks that might wish
to act as authorised importers, is reported to
be under review. If the 4% duty is reduced,
the unofficial import of bars, on which the
market largely relies, would be curtailed.

“Patria Moldova”: Scaled financial crisis is to be expected in Moldavia
“Moldavian wine crisis has big indirect consequences,”
Patria Moldova International Organization President Andrei Tserne
stated to a REGNUM correspondent.
According to him, main part of credit portfolios at
Moldavian banks consists of the so-called “wine credits.”
Major wine companies, like, for example,
Akorex, Bas Vinex, Askoni Plus, GB Company, etc.,
which exported no less than a million bottles per month, all of them have big debts at banks.
The companies
were credited “on the security of turnover,” “on the security of harvest” to buy bottles, etc.,
while the wine was being sold. At present, it is time to
repay these credits, but the wine-makers do not have anything to repay, Tserne said.
“If commercial banks suffer from not repaired credits, it is not so serious,” Tserne believes.
“A most serious fact is the one that Moldavian Savings Bank,
where majority of population kept their deposits, keeps more than
50% of its credit portfolio in wine business. Crisis of non-payment already begins and the
bank will soon have nothing to pay to its depositors.
That is why, we recommend Moldavians to withdraw their deposits from banks as soon as possible, because
crisis, compatible with the 1998 one, is just around the corner.
A tiny bit more and people will not be able to have their money back.
