Gold Rises After Currency Wars Reignite As China Devalues

  • China surprised global markets yesterday by devaluing its currency on concerns about sharply decelerating Chinese economy
  • We were not surprised as had said that this was likely as the Chinese economic numbers are bogus
  • The devaluation was condemned by U.S. politicians as a grab for an unfair export advantage

Currency Wars

Mark Hill via Merck Investments

  • China’s central bank set its official guidance rate down nearly 2 percent to 6.2298 yuan per dollar
  • It was the biggest one-day fall since a massive devaluation in 1994
  • The devaluation hit global equities and U.S. oil prices, with investors fearing a new currency war
  • Gold prices ticked higher as the move will increase deflation pressures in the U.S. and could lead to the Fed not being able to increase interest rates
  • As expected – currency wars and competitive currency devaluations are set to escalate once again
  • Gold, silver and tangible assets will benefit once again
