Argentina’s New Export Tax Could Hurt Yamana’s Cashflow

Less than two weeks ago, Argentina proposed a 12 percent tax on all exports out of the country as part of a plan to correct economic turmoil that has sent the peso to record lows. The tax will be capped at four peso for each US dollar of bullion and unrefined gold and at three peso for each dollar of unrefined metals.

“While the company’s favorable positioning relative to production and costs bodes well for the near and medium term, Argentina’s export tax has the potential to offset a portion of these benefits,” said Daniel Racine, president and CEO.
Racine notes that the company will work to seek a constructive resolution for both parties by determining if and how the tax will be applied. Unfortunately for Yamana, its share price was negatively affected by the September 3rd announcement and its stock lost approximately 17 percent of its value as result.

Published 3rd May 2018 World Gold council

Gold demand of 973.5t was the lowest Q1 since 2008. The main cause was a fall in investment demand for gold bars and gold-backed ETFs, partly due to range-bound gold prices.

Jewelry demand was steady at 487.7t, as growth in China and the US compensated for weaker Indian demand. Technology demand extended its recent upward trend. The total supply of gold increased by 3% to 1,063.5t, primarily due to a modest increase in producer hedging. Mine production was fractionally higher at 770t.

China, Germany and the US drove weakness in bar and coin investment. Global demand fell 15% to 254.9t as range-bound gold prices undermined investor interest.

ETFs saw a fifth consecutive quarter of inflows. Holdings grew 32.4t, due to growth in US-listed funds. Q1 investment was mixed, with rising interest rates on the one hand and a sharp spike in stock market volatility on the other.

Global jewelry demand was roughly flat at 487.7t. China was buoyed by holiday spending and the supportive economic backdrop improved US demand. By contrast, Indian consumers were discouraged by rising local gold prices.

Central banks added 116.5t to global official reserves in Q1. This was the highest Q1 total for four years and in line with long-term average quarterly purchases of 114.9t since Q1 2010.

Demand for gold in the technology sector continued to improve. The wireless sector was a key area of growth as facial recognition is increasingly deployed in smartphones, gaming consoles and security systems.

Why I spend little time guessing, speculating, charting or recording data regarding the historical hydra of the gold spot price market. Some believe it to be an evil. Not I. Some believe it to be great value. Either way pundits or intelligent analysts are celebrating a positive first quarter while others are sending up a warning signal as they see significant risks to the downside because of rising real bond yields. Yawn.

In a report Tuesday, one wrote that the growing divergence between gold prices and rising real interest rates is becoming “increasingly precipitous.” Traditionally, higher real interest rates weigh on gold prices, increasing the precious metal’s opportunity costs as a non-yielding asset. Okay.

Fear over global trade negotiations and recent softer than expected economic data have weakened the long end of the U.S. treasury curve, which should be a positive for gold prices. Okay. Historically as the long-end of the U.S. treasury curve declines, relative to European and Japanese yields, the dollar moves lower which paves the way for higher gold bullion and silver bar prices. So what?

Continuing from various reports: yields have been under pressure since pushing up to the 2.95% level, following the Fed’s decision to increase interest rates by 25-basis points following their March monetary policy meeting. Investors appear to be unsure of the Fed’s forecast that yields will accelerate higher in 2019 and 2020. A declining 10-year treasury yield is the markets way of telling the Fed that your forecast for growth and inflation are too rosy. I’ve had enough and will stick to Lee Erdahl’s guidance years ago: “Mike, when asked about the price of gold, I say one thing is for certain. It will go up or go down.”

I like to read about those actual gold producing companies and how the life of a miner is going. I also study patterns of the exploration dreamers and how they present their case for eventual production. I do like to read about the political upheavals where armed guards are required for protecting the miners or when a regime decides to take a bigger chunk of production. The writers that really blow my mind (and have for years) are those predicting $5,000 an ounce or more. My greatest curiosities are the gold bulls and bears that baffle and manipulate the direction of spot towards their financial benefit. At times a gold bull wants to bring the price down for acquisition. A gold bear may favor an increase in order to short the commodity. Nothing new here but the game is much more expensive to play than dealing in cotton, corn or even oil.

Hello new FORUM writer, parkerlarry. Your entry yesterday is appreciated. Our policy is to retain all entries unless they are grossly offensive. Yours is not at all offensive; however it is a collection of facts or opinions from internet sources and was difficult to read and understand. I’m moving it to Gold Enters Major Bull Market, a topic where Bluejay and others post relevant and personal facts and opinions. What I did this morning, instead of deleting or moving your entry to the Miscellaneous topic, downsized it from 1277 words to 776. Also I edited it to make it readable, unchanging its essence.

I know where you found this information and occasionally scan them. They reflect the current moods of one segment of our mostly ignored interests in gold, gold mining and international economic/currency environment. I’m pleased you have this interest. Much of what is posted on the internet has marginal impact or value in understanding gold mining or the major factors that influence the spot price. There are some interesting observations expressed in your compilation and perhaps others have additional thoughts on these.
For you who is reading this for the first time, instructions suggested: read Edited Version then Original Version or read the original for its content and understanding before reading the shortened edit. This is an unusual and very long entry with some very positive significance.

EDITED VERSION
Spent time 2006 help Jack Martin with gate into deadwood and nosed around in gulches wherein now as a self-taught geologist know they missed a big up there and likely several of them. Meanwhile: Was watching the markets since 5:30 am this morning, Gold coming down from 1345.00 midmorning top at 197 and during the gold 12 noonish run straight down to 1332.X where in the $HUI dropped (index gold stocks) to 192.5. Noted that my investment in silver 3x leveraged was almost unchanged 12.1X $ where as JNUG dropped to Dec 20 lows and then was at 16.33 ...it came back. This little 3x leveraged stock was so heavy invested in 2017 that it needed to be reorganized as ceilings had been hit for outright ownership in the stocks it was buying. It preformed opposite of a gold mine returns as a result of this. It’s opposite 3x bear did quite well as a result but dragged the entire mining stock index down as well as criptomania gripping the speculative masses. Red hot traders formerly here.(day low was 15.1X high was 16.80 that sold off fast). All $HUI came back only to 193.X. The indexes were are down fractionally in negative territory.

Further noted Kitco.com 500 ounce US Walking Liberty coins were briefly at 9,900 for uncirculated mixed dates, Canada maple leaves were at 9450 $ and Australian Kagaroos were available in 250 quantity monster boxes only. Now ran across some items of news thought: Silver will never be money Cripto currencies

How would most people connected to the markets in some significant way/401K feel about being paid in silver plus a 10% fee for payment in a coin what Kitco offers via these govt. minted coins above spot price of silver? Sure at some point past couple hundred lbs. NO THANKS. But how about fractional gold 1/10 oz. @ 1500 and oz. cost or 1 oz. gold at 30 dollars an oz. over spot gold? So US mint has sold 500,000,000 silver ounces so far to the investing public. They are coming out with a silver coin) and silver gold ratio is 78 to 1. Looking at original silver gold 20 1$ in silver = 20 $ in gold 178X thru 1932... 20 to 1. How would you feel about payment in silver at 19$?

This spoofing sell came at the end of the month. Actually the gold price hit $1365, Jan 25 envelope for traders closing out monthly books. Gold and silver usually rally thru April and again in June and possibly one more wave up in August July given normal markets. When have we had any kind of normal market situation?

Gold is attempting to hold the $1350 level. The reversal in the GDX on Thursday also came on trading volume eclipsing that of rally days over the past few weeks, which does not bode well for a continuation of this move for the short-term. If you are not fully invested in the sector, I strongly suggest continuing to buy weakness in the best junior gold & silver developer/explorers and sub $1 billion market cap growth-oriented producers. A collection of micro-cap, early-stage explorer “lottery tickets” is also advised if you do not mind a bit more risk. Judging by the cryptocurrency and pot stock moves lately, I believe the mining space is no longer the riskiest sector in the stock market and has instead become the last deep value alternative left in the marketplace, especially when you consider the fact that the mining space has a combined market cap of roughly one half of 1% percent of the stock market.

To put this into historical perspective, at the peak of the last precious metal bull market in 2011, the miners made up 2% of the stock market. By the end of the fabulous gold bull which ran from 1971 to 1980, gold investments as a percentage of Total Global Financial Assets had reached 5.0%. This means gold investment as a percentage of Global Financial Assets were nearly 9 Times greater in 1980 than it is today. In the event gold investments, as a percentage of Global Financial Assets, again rises to 5.0%. It means $5.25 trillion will flood into gold.

Now is the time when funds hold miners down to cover their shorts, while buying all the shares from retails. When they have all the shares they need that's when rally in miners may start. This week was an exciting week for Gold. One thing for sure happened, that minor train’ definitely left the station. After spending all that time, money, and research making investments, to see them start to preform was satisfying.

You never want to be the proverbial man pictured running behind the train. Running to catch up. Especially that train. Funny

thing this week, there was a man running behind it. Almost ironic. As the man ran faster and faster to catch up to the train.

You could feel the tenison in the air. Then at the last second, a hand extended. Helping the man board!
That grab, that pick, was my favorite. That is where hero's are born. Thank you Mr. Erfle for the hand. It meant a lot to me.

The Shot Heard Around the World: Bloomberg reported that Beijing is reviewing the composition of Chinese reserves and considering reducing their allocation to U.S. Treasury securities. China has been diversifying away from Treasuries for years, including increased allocations to gold, direct investments in private equity, hedge funds and high-quality, euro-denominated debt.

The Shot Across the Bow mirrors what is shaping up as a new currency and trade war between the U.S. and China. The U.S. is preparing to slap tariffs and trade sanctions on China, so China is warning Washington that such actions can be met with retaliation.

A top Treasury official signaled confidence in the U.S. government debt market, which at $14.5 trillion is the world’s largest. China holds the world’s largest foreign-exchange reserves, at $3.1 trillion, and regularly assesses its strategy for investing them.

Yields were already climbing this week amid expectations the improving global economy will boost inflation pressures round the world, just as major central banks scale back their asset purchases.

Global gold demand in Q1 2017 was 1,034.5t, 18% below the exceptional Q1 2016, which was the strongest ever first quarter. Solid inflows into ETFs were nevertheless a fraction of last year’s near-record inflows, and slower central bank demand also contributed to the year-on-year drop. Bar and coin investment, however, was healthy at 289.8t (+9% while demand firmed slightly in both the jewelry and technology sectors.

Not surprisingly, Germany and UK led EFT inflows. USA was a distant third. Much of the investment in gold bars growth came from China, where retail investment was up 30%, breaching 100t for only the fourth time on record.

Indian jewelry demand jumped 16% from last year’s exceptionally low level as market conditions improved after a very tough 2016. Pent-up demand from the closing weeks of 2016 was gradually released as liquidity improved

The gold share sector has turned around along with gold, both turning weekly bullish.
The probabilities of the current strength continuing for an unknown matter of weeks is very good.

It is suspected that when the 50 day moving average line on many gold stock charts, a technical condition known as the "kiss of death" crossed below their 200 day moving average lines many professional traders sold these shares short. Part of the strength in the sector is attributed to these folks buying back these shorted shares at a loss.

Predicting lower gold prices in lieu of the sector's strength doesn't appear at the moment to be prudent, along with gold recently turning weekly bullish. Lower gold prices, if they come, will have to wait for another day.

Hi Mike

I am to a large degree a market technician.

The current slide in the gold shares appears to be ending for the short term. In regards to gold, this is a more tricky subject. The respected Martin Armstrong is calling for a lower metal price. This would mean a continuation of the current intermediate down phase, if his opinion pans out.

I continue to see gold in a major bull market with downside possibilities to the 800 area.

I see a shift coming into the gold shares and away from the metal.

The extreme for gold on the upside now is around 3000.

At the moment, I am following Barrick Gold to support my increasing relative strength opinion for the sector.

Disclosure: I do not hold Barrick shares. Most of the families assets are in gold and silver coins and specimens.

HELLO BLUEJAY

Some savvy financial businessmen I know commented about the posture of the gold market in the near term. All agree that this current fall is an event in the bull market regarding price. What do you see for the current slide?

Comments include: regarding the increase buying power of the US dollar, the reality (or threat) of inflation is ignored; the price manipulators will drive the price down in order to firmly set a low before increasing gold inventor for the future bull increase.

I always fall back on what our great past director, Leland H. Erdahl, recommended as a response when asked about spot pricing. “Mike, rest assured that the following will be the truth. Tell them the price will be higher or lower, it goes up or down and that is about all one should expect.”

With this caveat in mind, how do you see the coming months?

We don’t play the gold market. We are sellers this week because bills must be paid. Oh, well. Next week, I am sure, spot will be higher or lower.

For the week

Gold $1253 off $64.10
Silver $17.34 off $1.87

The round number of 1300 on gold has been breached along with some support at the 1290 level. It looks like the metal is headed to the $1200 level. This is quite possible as the last remaining time in 2016 should be on balance, a bit negative.

When this section was named and started back in January of 2003 it was because a new major bull market in gold had begun, contrary to what you were reading in the papers, hearing on CNBC and on the nightly news. The bull market began exactly on January 23, 2003 when it crossed $352. This bull market remains in force. If for any reason it breaks $700 then, well, this major trend will have changed.

As most folks know, the trading up and down within this bull trend in gold and its related companies can be exciting and at times, scary. The current sell-off in both, overall, could last a matter of unknown weeks ahead. Looking at possible positives, it would be nice if the $1200 level on yellow metal generally held until January of next year when Martin Armstrong once mentioned that a new leg up in gold will begin. He also mentioned sometime back that he sees gold reaching $5,000 in three or four years.

Personally, I don't want to attempt to pinpoint the bottom coming up because it's a waste of time playing these games. I would rather concentrate on looking at gold related companies now, knowing they could go lower, and slowly start picking up the ones that have talented proven management with money in the till knowing this current lower move will end, hopefully followed by much higher price going forward.

I follow closely a few excellent gold sniffers up in Canada by the names of David Palmer
and Pierre Lassonde. I continue to hold all my OSTO shares and patiently wait for the next big find which, IMO, is just a matter of time. Thanks Mike for all your time and expertise in keeping the mine a going concern.

Gold has entered a declining phase along with silver. Next support on gold is $1290 followed by $1200. The gold shares have as well been weak.

Gold $1343.30 UP $9.60

Following the British vote to exit the EU, gold advanced smartly. Since then it has been backing and filling with a lower bias.

Expecting a lower metal price, BREXIT changed everything for the time being. Currently, gold is positive while it remains
above its 1000 day at $1306.06.

There is no question what pushed gold higher and sustained the advancing metal related shares was money exiting western Europe. This trend continues, especially in the U.S. replica watches stock market. Although more funds will eventually head our way, a question remains, is this spurt near to ending

A follow up on what George Soros was doing marketwise several weeks back:

Today's comments from Martin Armstrong,

"No professional trader tells people what he will do in advance. Those announcements were made AFTER Soros took a position. I believe they were stories to create his exit. You get people rushing in who think they are joining him when they are being used for the exit.

George Soros is reported by Bloomberg to have been on the wrong side for he was long in the pound before Britain’s vote to leave the European Union on Friday. That means he probably sold the gold positions and used that hype as the exit. He clearly assumed BREXIT would not happen. However, Soros is generally a bear in world stock markets and this is the majority of the crowd. Soros also donated $8 million to Hillary along with the worst of the worst from Wall Street."

Gold $1215,30 off $4.50
Silver $16.25 off $0.09

Will gold sell off more, contrary to Soros's positive outlook for it and on Barrick Gold?

The analyst Martin Armstrong and his computer Socrates relating to past bearish
intermediate calls on the metal from above $1,900, appear to think so.

His Friday's comments are certainly not bullish over the short term for gold:

It might appear that Soros' bullish stance on gold and possibly Barrick Gold could be premature.

Friday's comments from Martin Armstrong might indicate a storm ahead for gold:

"The markets are in turmoil. Gold has plunged again trading down trying to flirt with 1206. If we close below 1206 today, then get prepared for a test of 1174 which is the next Monthly Bearish beyond 1240. If we get this signal today, it begins to look like we will break 1000. Failing to exceed last year’s high keeps it on track where we have the potential for the low in 2016. Looks like we will shake the diehards out of the tree."

This is only for the short term, the long term is a different story. Mr. Armstrong expects gold to reach $5,000 an ounce starting when gold finally hits its bottom. The big question is, has gold bottomed already or will it be bottoming lower? It would not surprise me if gold does make a lower low but without new lows in the gold related companies. Only time will tell.

Talking about safe deposit boxes:

After the gold seizure order of 1933 IRS sealed safe deposit boxes nationwide. And of course the owners of the boxes were on record at the banks.

And of course the banks, who were controlling the access to the boxes, were held responsible that no seal was broken - except in the presence of an IRS-Representative.

That is a lesson from history too that is worthy of being remembered.

Hans

Your reference to history seems quite in order. Thank you for your submission.

Yes, when it comes to government being pushed into a financial corner anything is possible. Roosevelt was a coin collector. If history repeats itself it may be OK to hold collection coins more than bars and the bullion coins and the bullion jewelry. Government appears certainly moving in that direction as holding gold in safety deposits boxes is now considered money laundering by them.

Here are some of today's comments by Martin Armstrong:

When you introduce a collapse in confidence in government, people no longer “feel” secure and they hoard even the based currency. This is why we find so many hoards of debased Roman currency during the chaotic 3rd century.

It is a curious paradox. Right now people are hoarding, as are the banks and corporations. It is hard to hoard paper currency for you will not be able to distinguish between old and new. This means that the hoarding will migrate to tangible assets, shares, gold, silver, and antiquities.

Are folks putting scared money into the gold shares for safety? It would seem so, as the great advance in past months just might indicate a change in thinking. Gold has advanced only 20% from its recent lows while the shares are up many times more versus the metal's achievement.

The shares are not yet into a major bull market but recent technical bullish preparations appear to be getting it ready to do so. Of course, when this takes place is another question.

If governments become as desperate as Bluejay expects they will, it may be wise to reread Presidential Order 6102 signed by President Roosevelt in 1933.

Read the wording on the Internet and decide afterwords whether you want to own gold bars, gold coins or plain old gold juwelry.

A Growing Case For Gold and Gold Related Companies

Posted May 21, 2016 by Martin Armstrong
Rock Hard Place



The Fed is between a rock and a hard place and is trying to be that little flower that sees the light. It has two choices: (1) deal with the pension crisis at home by raising rates to prevent defaults, or (2) keep rates low to save other governments in emerging markets who continue to borrow and are doomed anyhow. Then there is the question of whether the budget deficit in the USA will explode with rising rates.

The Fed has really lost control of the economy, but the mainstream still needs to figure this out. Our model goes nuts from 2018 into 2020. This is part of the peak in 2015.75. Of course, the general public does not see this yet. They should by next year and then the game will change.
Quiet-into-LightGovernments will not go quietly into the light. They will rage at every possible moment. They are moving toward electronic money since their solution is to force everyone to pay whatever tax they demand. On January 1, 2017, G20 will begin sharing info on everyone. Compliance in business will cost tens of billions of dollars alone. Even companies who do not have foreign clients will have to confirm they do not.

Naturally, governments will act in the most stupid manner for they will not reform. Even if they grab everything, it would not be enough to save them. So be prepared. They will get very punitive. Expect crazy laws to benefit them like constitutional amendments. They will find whatever excuse to confiscate assets; mere suspicion will become proof and it will be your burden to prove innocence.

The old guard is near death. People like John McCain and Barbara Boxer, who was shut down in California, are out the door. We are looking at new people coming to power — the changing of the guard. In this respect, Trump is part of the new and Hillary is the old world of corrupt politics. We are turning the corner. Those in government remain clueless.

What survives is always tangible assets be it land, industry, shares, or something of value like gold, silver, antiques, etc. Whatever currency we use is only a medium of exchange between tangible assets. Currency is not “money,” it never holds its value, and by no means is it a store of wealth. It is just a medium of exchange like a language. So whatever we end up with, which I believe there will be some basket of currencies, will become the new medium of exchange through which everything else if measured.
