“Nobody rings a bell at the top or the bottom of a market” (Wall Street proverb)

“Nobody rings a bell at the top or the bottom of a market” (Wall Street proverb)It takes a brave person to call the bottom of any market - or the top for that matter. As they say, nobody rings a bell at the top or the bottom and those that try to second guess a trend change often get their heads handed to them on a plate. But - and it’s a big but – some of the signs we have started to see in the gold market over the last few weeks would suggest that, after four years of attrition, we could finally be seeing the start of a sea-change for the precious metals and the miners.

So what gives? Let’s start with China which last month ended years of speculation concerning its gold holdings  when it finally declared some official numbers. The People's Bank of China said in a statement that it had boosted bullion assets to 1,658 metric tons, up from 1,054 tons in 2009, when it last updated its figures. These numbers were considered by many to be pretty unimpressive and well short of consensus estimates of around 3,000k-4000k tons.  Some, including well known financial author and wealth manager Dr Stephen Leeb, think the true number for Chinese gold holdings could be anywhere between to 15,000 and 18,000 tons.


Russian Business Correspondent John Helmer - are legal dominoes about to fall over Russian Sanctions?

dances with bears

According to Russian Business Correspondent John Helmer, the dynamics of Russia’s relations with the West may be about to take an unexpected twist, which in his view could lead to the unraveling of the current Western imposed sanctions against Russia.
In the latest blog post on his “Dances with Bears” website, he discusses the significance of  a ruling made by an Austrian court to refuse to extradite Ukrainian businessman Dmytro Firtash to the US on corruption charges, siting that US government charges against him are unsubstantiated and unlawfully motivated by political scheming.  John then expands on how this decision could have significant implications, particularly  for the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg who are set to judge whether EU sanctions against Russia are also unlawfully motivated.
In this exclusive podcast interview John discusses the situation further with MiningMaven’s Malcolm Palle. We hope you enjoy listening.
