Gold crossed over the $1700 mark today on news of more stimulus measures by the Federal Reserve.  This news pushed the dollar down; Gold played its usual inverse position by jumping up several days in a row.

Precious metals started the week with a climb that was based on European news.  Negotiations between Greece and private debt holders are still under way. Sources close to the situation report a deal is close and private bondholders stand to take a loss of between 65 to 70 percent.

The Federal Reserve officially announced that the interest rates will not be raised until at least 2014.  The Fed believes that the unemployment rate still needs to be controlled. It anticipates that inflation will remain consistent with firm prices. The Federal Reserve’s actions indicate that they are concerned about a struggling economy, and unfortunately, this depresses the value of the dollar which had been rising compared to the euro. Federal Reserve observers are split on whether there will be another round of quantitative easing. According to the CNBC survey in January, about half of the respondents believe there will be a QE3, while 44 percent say no. These same respondents are optimistic on the economy, as long as the European crisis does not turn for the worse and create a significant global event.

The International Monetary Fund cut its global forecast of 2012 growth from 4% to 3.3%, and already is dropping its projected growth forecast for 2013 from 4.5% to 3.9%. Those forecasts are still not set; they are dependent on the efforts of the 17-country euro zone coming together to fight financial turmoil. The IMF has also called on the European Central Bank and other countries to support the euro zone with additional funding. In an update, the IMF said, “The near-term outlook has noticeably deteriorated … The global recovery is threatened by intensifying strains in the euro area and frailties elsewhere.”

The unusual Silver bullion coin, the Silver Kookaburra, was released in 1990 by the Perth Mint of Australia. These beautiful coins celebrate the interesting bird native to Australia. Due to the variety of designs and privy marks available on the Silver Kookaburra coins, these are very popular among collectors who buy Silver coins.

Each 1 oz. Australian Silver Kookaburra contains .999-fine Silver and includes proof-like frosting in the central design. The obverse features a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and lists the face value of the coin. The reverse displays the kookaburra. Every year, the coin has a slightly different design, which makes the Silver Kookaburra coins attractive to collectors. From 1990 through 2010, only 300,000 coins were minted each year; the 2011 and 2012 versions have mintages of just 500,000.

The Perth Mint originally began in 1899 as a branch of Britain’s Royal Mint in order to help supply the Gold sovereigns and half sovereigns, which were used as everyday circulating coins throughout the British Empire. In 1970, control of the mint passed from Britain to the Western Australian Government.

12.9.11 Weekly Recap

Gold this week was heavily influenced by the European debt crisis, with prices rising or falling based on the latest the news from Europe.  Tuesday morning saw gold reach its lowest point for the week, with the price dropping as low as $1,708.  The highest price for gold during the week came late Wednesday afternoon, when the precious metal rose to more than $1,744.  By week’s end, Gold was responding to the European news positively, rising along with the euro.  Oliver Pursche, co-portfolio manager of the GMG Defensive Beta Fund, said, “When you have so much retail and ETF interest (in Gold), you’re not going to trade on the fundamentals on the short term. (But I) would not be surprised to see higher Gold prices longer term.”

Monday started with the focus still on the debt crisis in Europe, with Gold prices dipping and U.S. stock futures rising amid optimism regarding a resolution to the eurozone debt crisis.  With a European Union summit planned for the end of the week, Rockwell Global Capital’s Peter Cardillo said, “The (stock) rally continues, but it’s all about Europe and any disappointing news out of Europe later in the week could mean an about-face for this market.”  French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel found themselves under fire to agree on a “master plan” regarding the budget for the eurozone. They announced their proposal for the “Stability and Growth Pact” treaty to assist with strengthening the eurozone financial policy to reinstate confidence in the shared currency.  Commerzbank, in response to news that the European Central Bank (ECB) was expected to cut interest rates, stated in a note, “This should lend support to the Gold price, since the opportunity costs of holding Gold will remain low.”  Also, the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) reported that the U.S. service sector performed at a slower pace than expected in November.  Standard & Poor’s (S&P) came out with very harsh wording in its credit rating review for the eurozone, warning fifteen countries (including France and Germany) about a possible credit downgrade.

On Tuesday, optimism that eurozone leaders would come up with a concrete plan to shore up the debt crisis continued to spread, spurred on by investor belief that Standard & Poor’s (S&P) downgrade warning to 15 European countries the day before would help that process along.  In a commentary written for Marketwatch, author Satyajit Das stated, “What happens in Europe will not stay in Europe.  The shock will be rapidly transmitted through trade, investment and the financial system to the rest of the world.  It may truncate the nascent U.S. economic recovery.”  There was fear that the European Financial Stability Facility also might face a downgrade of its respected credit rating if even one of the bailout fund’s six guarantors (Germany, France, the Netherlands, Finland, Austria, and Luxembourg) was downgraded from a rating of AAA.  U.S. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner was in Germany Tuesday to attend the three-day eurozone summit aimed at finding a European economic resolution.  He indicated his support for the German-French initiatives pushing closer European financial cooperation, and urged policymakers to look to central banks to help provide protection from the growing debt crisis.

Wednesday saw many investors waiting on the results from Thursday’s European Central Bank meeting, in which the result is expected to be a lowering of interest rates.  The big card on the table for the meeting was the proposed new EU treaty that would include tougher budget rules.  Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner headed to France to continue promoting the American agenda while meeting with French, Italian, and Spanish officials.  Geithner stated, “I have a lot of confidence in what the president of France and the minister are doing, working with Germany to build a stronger Europe.”  The U.S. senate appeared to put “too-big-to-fail” banks back on its radar, with Senator Sherrod Brown holding a hearing Wednesday regarding “new oversight authority to shield Main Street from Wall Street megabank risk.” Comments made by German officials and the new economic figures had diminished hopes that a resolution would come out of the EU summit planned for Friday.

News about the European Union drove major market movement during this past week. Precious metals prices and U.S. stocks were both down Thursday morning after the announcement from the European Central Bank (ECB) that it would be cutting its key lending rate from 1.25% to 1%, while also introducing further measures in an effort to ease lending for banks.  Investors appeared to be hoping for news that the ECB would aggressively begin to buy bonds.  However, ECB President Mario Draghi announced the oppositeEuropean Union leaders meeting in Brussels came to an agreement on new fiscal rules for stricter budget discipline in the eurozone.  However, EU leaders were unable to come to an agreement on how to shore up the EU’s future permanent rescue fund, and the looming question about whether any new agreement would require major changes to the EU treaty wasn’t even brought up.  French President Nicolas Sarkozy stated, “Never has the risk of Europe exploding been so big.” The German Chancellor Angela Merkel offered, “The euro has lost credibility, and this must be won back.  We will make clear that we will accept more binding rules.”  Not everyone was convinced.  Scotia Capital economist Alan Clarke said, “One step forward, two steps back.  The eurozone leaders might as well not bother.  Pack their bags, go home, enjoy the weekend, and do their Christmas shopping.”  In the U.S., weekly jobless claims fell by 23,000 to 381,000, a better number than the expected drop of 9,000.

By Friday, after overnight talks in Belgium, 23 European nations (including all 17 eurozone members) were planning on a new intergovernmental treaty for fiscal discipline, which would include caps on Gross Domestic Product deficits, consequences for deficits exceeding 3% of GDP, additional contributions to the International Monetary Fund, and other features.  However, not every EU member was on board for a revision of the treaty.  British Prime Minister David Cameron, after telling journalists present that Britain “would never join the euro,” argued for regulatory exemptions that would protect the United Kingdom’s financial services industry. He said that the ideas proposed by French President Sarkozy and German Chancellor Merkel were not something he could “in good conscience” take back to the UK and put to a vote in parliament.  In response, President Sarkozy said, “Our British friends made unacceptable demands.”  Also on Friday, Moody’s Investors Service downgraded three French banks based on the continued negative economic outlook in Europe, explaining, “The probability that the (banks) will face further funding pressures has risen in line with the worsening European debt crisis.”
