precious metals lagging

Someone enlighten me please as to why precious metals are lagging...with real reasons.

#############

Chuck, a couple of weeks ago at a wedding I was fortunate to have some conversation with a chap I think of as a 'proper' trader.

He runs his team of over twenty staff and is targeted with earning M£100 profit in this year.

He specialises in energy, oil and natural gas futures and carbon futures, but boy oh boy is this dude sharp and knows a great deal. Also very friendly, a rugby player and musician.

He has no interest in precious metals and cannot see the appeal.

His answer to my question 'why is gold down and fallen so far, was that 'BIG DOGS' who's main interests were elsewhere had diversified into gold etc, but needed to cash up in a hurry to fend off margin calls from their main interests which had suffered of late...and needed to be protected.

That's the best I have.... !

Ecuador to trade its USD for a new currency

About Correa, furthermore from captured hard drives from FARC dignataries killed in a raid, it was found that Correa was given campain funds by the Colombian drug militia, the FARC. Nothing was ever done, he should have been impeached and wasn't...because his desciples in the legislative branch simply refused to drag their hero through the dirt.

Correa is basically a dictator posing as an elected president because his party controls the legislative branch and they are desciples of Correa...whatever Correa says, goes. So it is a false democratic republic at best. He is an arrogant insolent unprofessional jungle monkey.

As to downgrades by S&P and like poobahs, expect to see more of this as time goes on..it's going to level off a bit, maybe for a year or two, then fall off the cliff as far as credit ratings go.

Frankly I can't see where USA has a credit rating more than C with the debt to production ratio. If we are talking about "how well an entity could pay its debt" USA simply can not. Then why is it rated so high?

What is keeping precious metals down? It makes no sence for me alone, for I don't have the facts. In these times people must be going for precious metals and they are not showing the demand. It's said central banks are buying prec. metals but it seems someone is selling or the demand would be greater and who in hades would sell precious metals in times like these other than lunitics?

Someone enlighten me please as to why precious metals are lagging...with real reasons.

Ecuador to trade its USD for a new currency

Early on in Correa's status as president he presented himself as a man for the public and his campain platform was likewise good. After some time in office as so often happens however, he's changed immensely. You can't predict what a persident has up his sleeve if he's secret about it. He gained again in the following election but this time by the poor who were essentially purchased by Correa and opposing parties failed (as in the W. Bush election) to provide decent competitive candidates...so Correa was a shoe in. Once you get the poor on your side in these banana republics you're king. It worked in USA for FDR during the great depression as well. Desperate people do desperate things. I would assume the forthcoming USA election campains will employ lots of benefits for the poor ad suffering, and since there's so many of them there, it's a prime time to take over, eh? This situation extends to many countries these days ya know. Sharks advance on blood trails and wolves sniff out deer with broken legs. I'm glad I'm old. I would hate to be born right now and have to sustain a lifetime of political garbage...worse than today's.

recent weeks may be insufficient to fully address ongoing systemic stresses in
the eurozone.
-- We are lowering our long-term ratings on nine eurozone sovereigns and

Ecuador to trade its USD for a new currency

You are correct. Correa is a danger to his country and an embarassment to Latin America, similar to the Neanderthal Chavez. Correa is throwing a huge fiesta in a southern city this weekend to "buy votes" in a territory that didn't support him well in the last election, bussing in partcipants in fact, to help him win the forthcoming election. Get 'em drunk Correa! Correa like the cone head Chavez was elected primarily by the poor which comprise most of the voters and of course by subsidies, free this and that etc. and a monthly check..free money and BUYING VOTES. A chicken in every pot was FDR's ploy and it worked of course. If you get the poor to vote for you in these banana republics you win...even if you lie to them as has happened many times.

I respectfully disagree. We are already in a "new normal" global economy but the rating will be meaningless. If AA is the new AAA rating then the US is still the most attractive of all ugly ducklings.

If the 10 yr treasury market doesn't express this then I suppose all traders in the fixed income markets are collectively of the least mental competence of all humans.

If the US is de facto AA instead of AAA then what would that say for the UK and France?

Cheers!

Inside the Fed in 2006: A Coming Crisis, and Banter New York Times

..."As the housing bubble entered its waning hours in 2006, top Federal Reserve officials marveled at the desperate antics of home builders seeking to lure buyers. The officials laughed about the cars that builders were offering as signing bonuses, and about efforts to make empty homes look occupied. They joked about one builder who said that inventory was "rising through the roof." But the officials, meeting every six weeks to discuss the health of the nation's economy, gave little credence to the possibility that the faltering housing market would weigh on the broader economy, according to transcripts that the Fed released Thursday. Instead they continued to tell one another throughout 2006 that the greatest danger was inflation – the possibility that the economy would grow too fast.".../..

It is official. President Raphael Correa of Ecuador is planning to exit the exclusive use of USD and reenstate the Sucre as currency. That means a fair amount of USD will hit the market. Ecuador has used USD exclusively for its currency for years...Ecuador doesn't have a currency itself. This is soon to change according to the information I got "under the table" today. Ecuadorians with savy are buying realestate, heavy equipment, anything. So am I.

Wnen is SNB going to use it's "unlimited" resources to curb EUR/CHF's fall?

News from a top level confidential source: USA (remember Obaman's promise to prevent a EUR collapse?) has committed officially to shore up the ECB with funds or debt paper...I don't know the exact instruments, if the countries including Switzerland, fess up to what USA citizens have accounts in European countries. The USA IRS is hopping all around Switzerland from what I heard today and all secrecy policies are tossed to the winds. This is fact. Money is exiting Switzerland by the boatfull so to speak as a result.

Europe ultimately banks in Switzerland as do many countries. If it's European bank customers simply are not there due to a Euro collapse, Switzerland stands to lose a bundle. So Switzerland is encouraging anything to shore up the Euro and ECB..including divulging USA citizens and corporate account data to the IRS. This is not a debatable post unfortunately.

What does this mean for USD and CHF?

Here's Why Downgrades of European Nations are Still Important

(Dow Jones via eFXnews) Everybody knows that European sovereign debt has looked less and less safe over the last couple years. So, readers may wonder why a credit rating agency essentially saying that via a downgrade would come as a big surprise to the market. In short, the rumors of imminent downgrades today haven't. B0nd prices of France for example have slipped a bit, and German has risen. But it's not a giant move. In short, the market has priced in a lot of the worries about downgrades.

But contrary to what many people think. The market is not an all-seeing, all-knowing organism. It's .....

Hedge funds who have bought Greek debt and hedged it with Credit Default Swaps stand to do better with a default than a "voluntary" debt restructuring. Earlier, Banks were willing to bend to the kind of political pressure that private investors will not.

    €/$ lower. Word seems to be leaking out that France and Austria will be downgraded one notch to AA+ by S&P. That would be less of a downgrade than expected. Germany reportedly will not be downgraded. Its logical that the decisions would be leaked beccuse governments are allerted in advance. We will see later.

    The EUR/USD hit its session highs in late Asia following comments from ECB Liikanen that suggested that the central bank was leaning towards more interest rate cuts to combat slowing economic growth. The comments did not stray too far from Draghi's press conference yesterday but did appear more direct in its message. The EUR/USD tested the 1.2870 area which was the former overall 2011 low point for the pair.

    trade with the rest of the world in November, an unexpected development that
    could boost hopes that the region will avoid a severe economic downturn.

    The 17-nation currency bloc posted a EUR6.9 billion surplus on trade in
    November, the European Union's statistics agency Eurostat said Friday. That is
    a far stronger outcome than the deficit of EUR1 billion expected by economists
    in a Dow Jones Newswires poll last week.

    For the year-earlier month, it had posted a deficit of EUR2.3 billion.

    The euro zone tends to post trade deficits in the winter months due to high
    fuel and energy imports. But Eurostat's seasonally adjusted figures, which
    strip out such effects, showed imports were no different in November from
    October, while exports jumped 3.9%.

    Data earlier this week that showed Germany and France, the euro zone's two
    biggest economies, both posted a strong rise in exports in November.

    Eurostat revised the October surplus down slightly to EUR1 billion from EUR1.1
    billion.

    EUROZONE TRADE SURPLUS

    European exports increased in November, led by France and the Netherlands, as the euro’s 3 percent decline in the month made the region’s goods more competitive.

    Exports from the euro region rose a seasonally adjusted 3.9 percent from October, when they dropped 2 percent, the European Union’s statistics office in Luxembourg said today. Imports were flat and the trade surplus widened to 6.1 billion euros ($7.8 billion) from a revised 500 million euros a month earlier.

    US BUDGET DEFICIT

    Jan. 12 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. government’s budget deficit widened 10 percent in December as spending rose more quickly than tax revenue.

    The gap expanded to $86 billion, above the median forecast of economists surveyed by Bloomberg News, from a $78.1 billion shortfall in December 2010, according to Treasury Department data released today in Washington.

    “We are seeing disappointing receipt growth because of a weak economy, which is unfortunate from a business cycle standpoint but also bad news for the Treasury,” Mike Englund, chief economist at Action Economics LLC in Boulder, Colorado, said before the report. “The slower economy, weakening receipts and a wider federal budget deficit means that there is pressure to cut spending even further.”

    US TRADE DEFICIT

    The Commerce Department is expected to report on Friday that the deficit on international trade in goods and services was $45.0 billion in November, up slightly from $43.5 billion in October.
    This trade deficit is the most significant barrier to jobs creation and growth in the U.S. economy. It's even more formidable than the federal budget deficit, because its effects are more enduring.
    The economic recovery is slow, because the U.S. economy suffers from too little demand for what Americans make. Americans are spending again -- the process of winding down consumer debt that followed the Great Recession ended in April. However, every dollar that goes abroad to purchase oil or Chinese consumer goods, and does not return to purchase U.S. exports, is lost domestic demand that could be creating American jobs.

    Swelling ECB Balance Sheet Brings Relief, Poses Risk For Euro
    Reply   
    (Dow Jones via eFXnews) The European Central Bank's increasingly swollen balance sheet has helped calm volatile markets, but some believe it could itself become a problem and bring more volatility to the 17-nation currency bloc.

    Nearly a year's worth of anticrisis lending measures have sent the ECB's books to a record EUR2.73 trillion, some 29% of the euro zone's gross domestic product. This expansion, capturing both the collateral pledged by banks receiving funds from the central bank and the sovereign bonds it has purchased for its own account, has been welcomed by bond investors, who see it as a stabilizing force. But the excess liquidity bodes for a weaker euro, and has some wondering if the ECB's own solvency could eventually be in peril.

    Exactly how exposed the ECB's financial position is to euro-zone contagion is a point of dispute.

    The central bank.....

    In Fed Officials’ 2006 Meetings, No Deep Worry on Housing
    Reply   
    WASHINGTON – The desperation of homebuilders was a running joke among top Federal Reserve officials during the waning phase of the housing bubble in 2006, according to transcripts released Thursday.
    They laughed about the cars that builders were giving to buyers. They laughed about efforts to make empty homes look occupied. They laughed at a report that one builder said inventory was rising “through the roof.”

    The officials, meeting every six weeks as the central bank’s top policy committee to discuss the health of the nation’s economy, did not seriously consider the possibility that problems in the housing market would send the nation into recession.

    “We think the fundamentals of the expansion going forward still look good,” Timothy F. Geithner, then president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, told his colleagues when they met in December 2006.

    The transcripts of the Fed’s Open Market Committee meetings in 2006, released after a standard five-year delay, suggest that some of the nation’s pre-eminent economic policy makers did not fully understand the basic mechanics of the economy that they were charged with supervising. The problem was not a lack of information; it was a lack of comprehension, born in part of their deep confidence in models that turned out to be broken.
