Cheaper Dollar Will Open Door For Chinese Investments In North American Natural Resource Companies

Commodities / Metals & Mining Jan 18, 2011 - 01:28 PM GMT

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn January 18th and 19th, the top officials of the two most powerful nations on Earth are to meet in matters of far reaching significance.  There will be not one but two dinners.  One is to be a grand dinner of state with all of the military and business leaders of both sides in attendance.  The other is to be an “intimate” dinner.  Oh, to be a fly on the wall of that private meeting. 


           Behind the photo-ops and the speeches there is one basic reality, China and America are joined inseparably at the hip in a single entity, which I am calling “The Chinamese Twins.”  As in all such pairings each head can have their own separate and distinct personalities.  The fact remains you can call one capitalism and the other communism, but both heads are mutually dependent on a single life support system.  The world financial network provides circulatory nourishment to both heads whose interests are complementary. 

           Washington needs the cheap dollar (UUP:AMEX) to pay off colossal debts.  China needs to revalue its Yuan to counter domestic inflation in such areas as food and basic consumer goods.  The Chinese have raised interest rates and bank reserve rules, to little avail.  At the same time the Chinese do not want to dry up credit which would impede their growing economy or slowdown exports. 

           A current headline in the Wall St. Journal reads, “The Bank Of China Moves to Make Yuan a Global Currency.”  This will come as no surprise to goldstocktrades.com readers.  In an article I wrote back in November, I spoke about China and Russia beginning to trade in Yuan and Rubles causing the need for the Yuan to be revalued higher. 

The Chinese economy is thriving and they can well afford to revalue the Yuan higher.  This stronger yuan will make North American resource assets cheaper and put China in the driver’s seat to control many of the large undeveloped assets.  At the same time they are buying gold, silver and uranium assets hand over fist to hedge themselves from a U.S. dollar decline, in which they own the largest interest.  In 2009 the Chinese Investment Corporation, a state owned company, took large ownership positions in Teck Cominco (TCK:NYSE) and Penn West Energy Trust (PWR). Recently in June, China National Nuclear signed a contract with Cameco (CCJ:NYSE) to supply 23 million pounds of uranium.  Hanlong Investments took a large stake in General Moly (GMO:AMEX), one of the leading North American molybdenum developers.  They want more gold and silver to support the Yuan in order to ensure that when the Yuan becomes the major world currency, it will be more resistant to the swings encountered by fiat currencies.  Additionally, they also want more precious metals to buttress its fiscal balance sheet and what they feel is the eventual replacement of the U.S. Dollar as the world’s reserve currency.  They are also rapidly developing and modernizing increasing their use of uranium, potash, molybdenum, rare earths, coal and oil and gas.

           By revaluing the Yuan higher, China will be able to control inflation and rising costs.  A higher Yuan will also benefit the Chinese investment side which has already been active making deals in North America.  The U.S. dollar will significantly be cheaper for the Chinese which would allow them to acquire North American assets for pennies on the dollar.  Just recently the Chinese Investment Corporation, whose focus is to look for investment opportunities abroad opened its first international branch in Toronto, which is the North American epicenter of resource  companies.   Its one billion plus people can enjoy more purchasing power through a higher yuan and a higher standard of living with a supply of North American natural resources which could fuel their rapid development. 

           Beyond the blustering and posturing at these dinners the trade off is that they want carte blanche to enter more strongly into the heart of capitalism and the North American resource sector.  Here the Chinese can get all the gold, silver and natural resource deals they want.  Doors will quietly swing open and everyone will go home happy.  The Chinese will have their desired access to buy gold and natural resource stocks, while The Americans receive a weaker dollar with which to pay off their burgeoning debts.  If you are thinking that such a Byzantine arrangement can’t be done, be assured it has all happened before.  During the 1980’s the USSR sold large amounts of gold secretly in New York.  It took three years to become public knowledge. 

           Another part of this “Chinamese” agreement concerns rare metals, on which the Chinese head wants to maintain its strategic grip of over 95% of the world’s supply.  I feel the U.S. will not make this an issue.  The U.S. will accommodate China in order to persuade them to raise the Yuan higher and the dollar lower.  I feel this revaluation will be done in a series of two or three steps in 2011, which should eventually move precious metals into new high territories and crush the U.S. dollar.  Volatile sell offs in gold and silver like I predicted in November and December, which we are currently experiencing now, may present long term precious metal investors with buying opportunities. 

           Underneath all of the media hype and adversarial stories between China and America, I read a front page story in the New York Times of 1-17-11, “GE To Share Jet Technology With China In A New Joint Venture.”  Expect to hear more deals in 2011 in which the Chinese continue to invest in natural resource assets in North America, while the U.S. continues to search for a way out of the financial crisis.    We may see further bailouts from the federal government as many states are in danger of defaulting.  The bankrupt states are already asking Washington for assistance.  This devaluation of the dollar that Geithner and Obama are asking for is to help the US pay off its debts and be able to raise its debt ceiling with cheap devalued dollars.  This should be bullish for precious metal prices where investors will seek shelter from soaring government deficits and a loss of the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency.
