Who would have thought a decade ago that Brazil would now be one of the highest-­cost countries for manufacturing—or that Mexico could be cheaper than China? While London remains one of the priciest places in the world to live and visit, the UK has become the lowest-cost manufacturer in Western Europe. Costs in Russia and much of Eastern Europe have risen to near parity with the U.S.

In ultimii ani, China a devenit unul dintre cei mai importanti jucatori (daca nu chiar cel mai important !) de pe piata globala a aurului. Achizitiile masive de aur ale Chinei, dublate de achizitii deasemeni semnificative facute de entitati publice ale altor state considerate economii emergente (precum Rusia, Brazilia, India, Iran, etc – care au insa in comun si faptul – mult mai important – ca pun la indoiala stabilitatea sistemului financiar global bazat excesiv pe monedele marilor puteri occidentale traditionale, si faptul ca sunt contestatari majori ai politicilor hegemonice ale occidentului in plan financiar-monetar global) … sunt rezultatul gandirii unor “minti luminate” si sunt considerate de unii analisti ca semnale ale unei potentiale amenintari majore pentru civilizatia cladita pe valorile si sistemele occidentale. Si asta pentru ca scindarea sistemului financiar global in doua (occident vs emergente) si o rivalitate intre acestea este vazuta ca o amenintare pentru marile puteri occidentale … Cine sunt oamenii care se afla asadar in spatele politicilor Chinei cu privire la gestionarea relatiei dintre sistemul financiar si aur … mai jos:

Unlike on the two prior occasions when the “mysterious” (coughBIScough) gold seller sold so much gold he briefly broke the gold market not once but twice, this morning’s concerted gold selling episodes, which briefly took gold to a three month low, were unable to obliterate the entire bid stack (at least for now) and crush enough liquidity to force the CME to announce another “stop logic” 10-20 second trading halt.

….  si alte tari pot urma Germania pe drumul repatrierii rezervei nationale de aur! Si asta poate da peste cap “sistemul” si mecanismele care determina acum miscarile de piata metalului pretios. Mai mult decat atat insa … repatrierea aurului Bundesbank-ului ridica numeroase semne de intrebare cu privire la acuratetea inregistrarilor privind depozitele de aur ale bancilor centrale din buncarele sau contabilitatea unor institutii precum BIS, FMI, FED sau BoE. Inaintea materialului din Financiar Times – New era of openness on Bundesbank gold …. iata un material care analizeaza modul in care marile institutii financiare transnationale cu sprijinul/implicarea marilor banci centrale manipuleaza piata si pretul aurului …: Este piaţa aurului manipulată de FMI, BIS, BCE, Banca Angliei şi FED?

La inceputul lunii iulie scriam despre investitia in aur ca plasament cu un mare potential de castig! La mai putin de 2 luni distanta, pretul metalului pretios a crescut cu peste 10% (vezi graficul). Si asta in dolari – moneda care a castigat serios teren in fata leului in acelasi interval de timp.

Perhaps, just perhaps, the goldbugs are finally going to be right. Enthusiasts for gold have been bawling about inflation risks from central bank experiments such as bond-buying for five years. So far they have been wrong.
