Gold price falls to five-year low on US rate rise talk

Gold price falls to five-year low on US rate rise talk

“The gold price has fallen to its lowest level in more than five years as talk of a US interest rate rise has led investors to sell the precious metal. Gold closed 2.5% lower at $1,104.60 an ounce in London, having earlier fallen below $1,100 an ounce for the first time since March 2010. The gold price is now more than 40% below its August 2011 peak. The stronger US economy has led investors to expect the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates this year. The expectations have led investors to gradually sell gold – a perceived safe haven investment in times of crisis – to invest elsewhere. Other commodities have also fallen, with the price of platinum down 5% – its weakest level since the crisis.” Continue reading

Hidden Time Bombs Behind Greece Bailout

Hidden Time Bombs Behind Greece Bailout

“Just these top four derivatives players — B of A, Goldman, Citi and JPMorgan — control nearly $203.5 trillion, or 92% of all derivatives held in the U.S. banking system. And the largest 25 U.S. banks control 99.8%. All told, the thousands of other regional, mid-sized and small banks in this country control a meager one-fifth of one percent of the derivatives. This is an oligopoly unlike any other in the financial world — one that ties the fate of the U.S. economy to these firms’ stability far beyond anything ever witnessed in prior centuries. In contrast, Lehman Brothers was actually smaller by comparison — with ‘only’ $7.1 trillion in derivatives.” Continue reading
