La Russie a acheté 600.000 Onces ...

d'Or au cours du mois de juillet 2009.
Depuis 2006, la Russie a augmenté ses réserves d'Or de 50% (de 12,5 Millions d'Onces en octobre 2006 à 18,3 Millions d'onces à fin juillet 2009)
Extrait du Midas de ce jour (site Le Metropole Café) :
I have been tracking the Russian central bank gold holdings since October of 2006 when they stood at 12.5 million ounces. Russia just reported their gold holdings as part of their Official reserve assets. See link
On the 20th of each month, Russia reports its gold holdings for the prior month. As of Aug 20, the Russian gold reserves now stand at 18.3 million ounces for July of 2009. This is an increase of 600,000 ounces of gold during the month of July 2009. Russia is now also showing their gold holdings for June 2009 on the link above.
The July 2009 increase of 600,000 ounces is the biggest one month increase in their gold holdings since I have kept records. The largest one month increase in gold holdings prior to today's report was a 400,000 ounce increase in Oct. 2008, August 2008, and Sept. 2007.
Russia tends to increase their gold holdings every month. The only question is, how much they will increase their gold holdings this month? Russian purchases tend to be heavy in the August, September, October time period based on past history. If an average gold price is used of $930/oz for July, the 600,000 ounce purchase represents $558,000,000. Not exactly chump change.
It is going to get real expensive for the banks to keep the gold price under $1,000/oz.
Within one week we learn Austria and Switzerland are not going to sell any gold in the near future. Now this news emanating from Russia. I can’t stress enough how important these developments are for the future of the gold price. Central bankers are sheeples that go with the flow and the flow right now is not to be a gold seller. If anything it is to be a gold buyer. The statements from Austria and Switzerland will be duly noted by other central bankers. They are like "smoke signals." lien
