UK House prices predicting general election result

Gold Targets $1600 New Record, Silver Surges 9% in 24 Hours as Dollar Falls

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011 Jul 14, 2011 - 11:51 AM GMT

By: GoldCore

Commodities

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is trading at $1,592.14/oz, €1,122.17/oz and £987.62/oz.

Gold has risen to new record nominal highs at $1,594.45 per ounce and silver has surged another 3% to over $39 per ounce after yesterday’s 6% rise. Today’s London AM Fix gold fix was $1,592.50 £987.54 and €1,119.04 – all of which are new record nominal highs.


Cross Currency Rates

European stock markets are lower after Asian equity markets were mixed overnight with the Nikkei falling 0.27%.

European debt markets are under pressure this morning with Spanish and Italian bond yields rising towards 6% again.

Ireland’s 10 year and 2 year yields spiked to new record highs at 14.13% and 20.9% prior to sharp falls which had the hallmarks of sovereign intervention - possibly the ECB or China.

The U.S. had its Aaa bond rating placed on review for possible downgrade by Moody’s which cited the “rising possibility” that the debt limit won’t be raised on a timely basis.

U.S. treasuries have also been sold this morning. Concerns that QE3 and the printing and electronic creation of hundreds of billions of dollars and Obama’s walkout from debt ceiling negotiations is not helping dollar and bond market jitters and has led to the record dollar gold price.

Ron Paul and Ben Bernanke: Is Gold Money?

Gold’s new record highs may also have been contributed to by the debate between Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke and Presidential candidate Ron Paul at the U.S. House Banking Committee (see video here).

Dr. Paul asked about the collapse in the value of the dollar by almost 50% in the past three years to less than a 1,580th of an ounce of gold.

“When you wake up in the morning, do you care about the price of gold?” he asked Mr. Bernanke.

“Well,” Bernanke replied. “I pay attention to the price of gold. But I think it reflects a lot of things. It reflects global uncertainties. I think the reason people hold gold is as protection against of what we call tail risks, really, really bad outcomes. And to the extent that the last few years have made people more worried about the potential of a major crisis then they have gold as a protection.”

Paul: "Do you think gold is money?"

Bernanke: "No. It's a precious metal."

Paul: "Even if it's been money for 6,000 years? Somebody reversed that and eliminated that economic law?"

Bernanke: "Well, you know, it's an asset. Would you say treasury bills are money? I don't think they're money either, but they're a financial asset."

Paul: "Why do central banks hold it if it's not money?"

Bernanke: "Well, it's a form of reserves."

Paul: "Why don't they hold diamonds?"

Bernanke: "Well, it's tradition. Long-term tradition."

Paul: "Some people still think it's money."

The Federal Reserve Chairman’s admission that gold is “protection” against “tail risks” and “really, really bad outcomes” is important and marks another step towards gold’s movement from being a fringe asset to being a core part of a properly diversified portfolio.

Gold is increasingly being seen as an important safe haven asset and indeed currency (despite Bernanke’s feeble denial of this) and this interview may be seen as another landmark in gold’s move from fringe “barbaric relic” to mainstream investment and savings vehicle.
