 Hey everyone.  Just wanted to share something coincidental and curious.  I use paypal credit card payments for my business.   On June 8th I received an email from paypal stating there are some updates to their policies beginning  July 9th, 2019.

Here is what was at the top of their list of updates:

If PayPal performs a currency conversion for your purchase, and the purchase is refunded at a later date, PayPal will perform a currency conversion for the refund at the transaction exchange rate in effect on the date of the refund.

I am NOT suggesting a date. Just interesting timing…   That is all.

Have a great day!!  We are in the home stretch..IMO…

Samson:  Adnan Karima: Gold, trade wars and currencies

9th June, 2019

Entered gold strongly in the global wars of trade and currency, and its impact on the price of oil, as a strategic commodity in the global economy. And focus on the “yellow metal”, because it is a “safe haven” for investors and their savings, as well as the reserves of countries in their central banks, in the context of “geopolitical” tensions and security disturbances in several parts of the world.

If gold is a luster that captures the eye, and is bought as a luxury commodity and “adornment” of social well-being, its acquisition comes in response to the deepest instinct and rooted in the human soul throughout history. His great appeal to investors is that he is a “strategic” asset and one of the most fundamental assets in any investment portfolio.

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the signing of the Bretton Woods Agreement in 1944, under which the currency pricing system was developed for the economically developed countries against the dollar and a fixed price of gold. The US currency became the reserve currency. The United States committed itself to guarantee a change in its value by a certain weight of gold But it appears that this agreement did not realize at the time the possibility of America’s inability to cover the accumulated “dollar” reserves of these countries.

This happened in 1971 when Western Germany and France replaced them with gold reserves. The so-called “Nixon shock,” announced by US President Richard Nixon, called for the abolition of direct international transfers from dollars to gold.

Before the global financial crisis that began in the United States, the price of a gold ounce in 2007 was about $ 750, and began to rise from the crisis and its aftermath, reaching a peak in September 2011 when it reached $ 1875, and remained at high levels until mid-2013, but declined between 2014 to 2016 to between 1200 and 1060 dollars according to the evolution of supply and demand, and then returned to rise in recent years until last week amounted to about 1328 dollars.

In addition to the 2008 crisis, liquidity is a high risk for all investors, as well as for central banks. The “geopolitical” developments and the trade war that accompanied the currency war have resulted in a number of countries led by China and Russia reducing their dependence on the dollar The buyers’ circles have expanded to include Turkey, Argentina, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Poland and Hungary to diversify their reserves. According to World Gold Council figures, central bank purchases in the first quarter of this year reached 145.5 tons, Up 68 percent year-on-year, following purchases of $ 651 million.

But last year, Russia bought 274 tons, a record and unprecedented, in exchange for the liquidation of its US treasury bonds, which brought it closer to the stock the Soviet Union had before its collapse in 1990. If it continues to buy, The level of France, which has the fourth largest gold reserves in the world.    LINK
