Existing gold cost for each ounce. As gold will be the most valuable factor & we all know that gold is helpful, the majority of us are utilized to getting it in the form of jewelry, but it can really consider a lot of other forms. it could can be found in bars or inside the type of coins. regardless of its state, the gold is handled like a commodity on its very own. it really is traded at the global stock markets all more than the globe. consequently it has a market expense just like the other merchandise traded internationally. The metal is measured in ounces. So, you are able to anticipate to determine the current gold price for each ounce.
You can’t expect the present gold price per ounce. This price of gold is floting. it fluctuates all of the time depending on the marketplace trends and on the techniques by which they adjust. You’ll be able to find the gold cost for each ounce index in all sites and on all tv channels that comply with the commodity markets day-to-day if you’re considering buying and selling using this type of precious steel. however, you should not expect to uncover the exact expense that you see on the display if you are dealing with a vendor. The cost of gold varies depending on the kind it is available in. since the coins and jewellery require particular fabrication it is possible to expect these to become a lot more pricey compared to the regular gold bars. This really is because you can find higher costs involved in their generating. also, you can expect antique objects to have larger rates given that they’ve not merely intrinsic worth.
So, it is possible to easily discover the existing gold cost for each ounce for these days if you want to buy or offer some amount with the precious metal. but why are this index and the trade of this commodity so essential? The quantities of gold in the world are restricted. Furthermore, they’re highly unlikely to adjust over time. This treasured steel can not be made, it can only be found and most resources of it have already been discovered. All this signifies that gold has a stable value which can be usually really substantial. It’s very unlikely to get devalued and this is not the case using the standard economic instruments we use including money, shares and bonds.
The gold cost for each ounce is quite substantial at current. This may be explained actually just. All other financial instruments that you simply can make investments in are extremely unstable. they are able to lessen their value any time, but this is not the situation using the treasured metal. So, a growing number of men and women desire to have a lot more of it. Because the demand is higher so may be the cost of gold.
Review of present gold cost for each ounce.
On November 30, the major governments, central banks, and major multinational banks blatantly declared war against the people of the world!
No matter how I look at the events, I just cannot come to any other conclusion.
I think there were two triggering events. first, on November 29 Standard & Poor’s reduced the credit rating of 37 global banks, including 14 of the largest banks and brokerage firms in the US. Second, the price of Bank of America’s common stock that day closed at $5.07 per share. the Bank’s shares actually dipped below $5.00 during evening trading.
Had Bank of America’s shares settled below $5.00 the next day, that would have triggered two events. first, many investment funds will not own any companies whose stock is valued below $5.00. Second, companies whose shares are trading for less than $5.00 cannot be owned in leveraged accounts. Therefore, had the Bank’s stock closed the next day under $5.00 there would have been a double flood of shares being liquidated. that could have forced Bank of America into bankruptcy, starting a domino chain of other major bank failures.
That horrible scenario did not develop last Wednesday. Instead, overnight Tuesday and before markets opened Wednesday, central bankers created a coordinated plan to flood the world with paper money.
First, the People’s Bank of China reduced its reserve requirement ratio by 0.5% for financial institutions. Then the Federal Reserve Bank, the Bank of England, the European Central Bank, the Swiss National Bank, the Bank of Japan, and the Canadian Central Bank all reduced the interest rate at which they would loan US dollars by 0.5%.
This was global inflation of paper currencies on the scale of trillions of dollars.
In effect, the governments, central banks, and major multinational banks have elected to reduce values of most paper currencies, with the result that it will take wealth away from the people of the world.
Citizens around the world are so worried about the declining values of their local currencies that they are aggressively converting their money into US dollars. Foreign banks have paid up to 1.6% above the exchange rate to acquire more US dollars for their customers. other banks are in such shaky financial condition that no other bank will sell them US dollars, no matter the price. As a result, the value of the US dollar has been generally rising for the past few weeks.
Yet, when these coordinated actions were taken last Wednesday, the US dollar index fell almost 1%.
Even though the wealth of the citizens of the world fell, the governments, central banks, and multinational banks enjoyed enormous benefits. all of them were able to borrow funds at lower interest rates than before. it looks like the multinational banks with major short positions in the gold and silver markets were able to cover some of these shorts. the governments and central banks bought themselves a bit more time to try to come up with new ideas on how to cure their cumulative fiscal mismanagement.
The world’s financial problems have deteriorated to such an extent that it is no longer a matter of resolving issues in one, two, or a few nations. Literally, every paper currency is going to fall in value against silver and gold even faster than they have in the past eleven years. consequently, it now takes a concerted joint effort by the major governments, central banks and private banks to try to accomplish any appearance of stability.
These actions are also effectively an admission that these huge quantities of government debts will never be repaid in currencies that have anywhere close to current purchasing power.
Take this move as your warning that you have very little time left before a financial catastrophe cripples a major swath of the global economy. it simply isn’t possible to now predict when the dominos will start to fall. you may have a year or more, or just months, or maybe only a few days.
Before these calamities hit, it is time to think like a survivalist. the public unrest in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Syria, Greece, Italy, and Spain this year could be just a sample of what could develop around the world, including cities, towns, and villages in the US.
Take action now. that means stock up on food, medical supplies, water filters, and other necessities. it may make sense to acquire a generator or weapons and ammunition (though make sure to get proper training with weapons if you chose to own them). I have seen some people advocating barter goods like cigarettes and liquor. those would not suit me, but they might be worth considering.
Above all, make sure to buy silver and buy gold! Specifically I mean buy bullion-priced physical forms of gold and silver and take immediate possession of them. buy them is small size units to be more divisible, such as one ounce or smaller for gold or ten ounces or smaller for silver. Gold and silver are almost universal forms of barter goods because of their multi-thousand year history being used as money.
As long as the gold/silver ratio is above 40, I recommend purchasing a higher proportion of silver than gold. with the ratio between 25 and 40, I suggest spending about an equal amount on both metals. at a gold/silver ration below 25, I urge you to acquire a higher proportion of gold.
I don’t want to come across as an alarmist. but the desperate actions taken by major governments, central banks, and multinational banks on November 30 require immediate attention and action to protect yourself. I wish you well.

Many years ago, our now forty-something son received a birthday gift for his eighth birthday that he really enjoyed. It was a cardboard book that held about 20 years of pennies, one or two pennies a year. He had a great time collecting pennies, reading dates and letters that indicated the mint where the penny had been made, and placing the pennies in the book in the proper place.
Since Autumn and Joey, our oldest grandchildren, were celebrating their eighth birthdays this past week, I decided to buy penny books for them along with a supply of pennies. my next task was to find a store that sold the books. after checking the yellow pages for coin shops, I called Chuck’s coin & gold Exchange in Wadsworth to ask if they carried the books. Since they did, I made a trip to the store to purchase two of them.
I’ve been reading about the high price of gold lately and have been considering selling my high school class ring. I haven’t worn it since I graduated in the early 1960s so I decided to take it along with me to Chuck’s to see how much the ring was worth. The two gentlemen in the store were very friendly and helpful, and offered me $115 for the ring. I learned that most class rings are 10 karat gold, like mine, and that the stone that I thought was an onyx was really black glass and was worthless. Chuck Young, the owner, said he would smash the “stone” with a hammer to remove it from the ring. When I told him I was going to do some comparative shopping, he offered to match any written price I found.I drove right back to Medina and took my ring into Lyle’s Jewelry & Coin at 4 Public Square. Lyle Morse, the owner, confirmed what I had already learned about the ring and offered me $125. at this point I was getting excited – maybe someone else would offer me even more! my next stop was at LaPlaca Jewelers, just steps away from Lyle’s at 13 Public Square. The gentleman there weighed my ring – it weighed 8 grams, and offered me $115. Now I knew that everyone was in the same ball park and that I wasn’t going to get rich.
I moved on down the street to the Medina Gem Company at 23 Public Square. There owner Anneliese Nefos looked at the ring and placed a phone call to check on the price of gold. she told me that the price changes daily according to the world market. When I asked whom she had called, she answered, “Lyle — we help each other out.” she offered me $117 for the ring and asked what he had quoted. When I told her, she said, “Go back right now before he changes his mind.”
When I traipsed back to Lyle’s with the ring, I had to fill out a form with my name, address, date of birth and either my driver’s license number or Social Ssecurity number. I also had to sign a statement that read: “I hereby certify, that I am the sole and lawful owner of said property, and the proper person to dispose of same.” unfortunately, I guess there are a lot of dishonest people around who sell stolen jewelry.
I’m now a little bit richer and I know a little more about selling jewelry. I had a good time doing my very unscientific research and everyone I talked with was friendly and helpful. I packaged up one penny book with five rolls of pennies and a magnifying glass and sent it off to Joey in Seattle. Autumn opened the other book when we celebrated her birthday here on Friday night. she and I then spent an hour peering carefully at pennies and wedging them into the book in the right slot. The present was a big hit with her; we haven’t heard about Joey’s reaction yet.

There are a growing number of articles that quote Hedge funds managers who claim to increase their exposure on gold.
On Monday, November 21st when gold price sharply declined Bloomberg reported that Hedge Funds cut their bullish bets on many commodities due to the debt concerns in Europe, but the article also showed that Hedge funds also increased their net long position in gold. This trend in gold hoarding was confirmed again today with Bloomberg’s report that gold traders continue to be bullish on the precious metal.
The only problem is that this gold hoarding isn’t represented in the current gold price. during the past couple of weeks from November 11th to November 25th – gold price declined by 5%; silver price also sharply declined by 7.8%.
The chart above shows the recent downward fall of both precious metals prices’.
This could mean that despite the growing bullish bets of Hedge Funds in gold, their purchase power doesn’t keep up with the many traders who trade down gold.
On the other hand, if this gold hoarding will continue, it’s likely to eventually change the recent downward direction of gold and silver prices and help them rally.
