Gold will break free from $1270-$1298 range and form a new range anytime soon. Silver needs to trade over $1419 to be in long term bullish zone. Crude oil needs to trade over $57.00 to rise to $63.00 this week. Apprehensions that an all out global trade war will reduce demand for crude oil has resulted in the fall. Crude oil is just a speculative play. Supply pressures from Venezuela, Iran and Libya are still there. Not much major economic data releases till Thursday. Just trade in the technical. Prepare yourself for a big next week US May nonfarm payrolls and June FOMC. Ignore the trade war.
India: Second phase of gold reforms on govt's priority list, revamped GMS on cards
The second phase of gold reforms is on the government’s priority list and an action plan, prepared by the economic affairs department and commerce ministry officials while the country was in election mode, will soon be announced. The measures include a revamped gold monetisation scheme (GMS), treating gold as an asset class, setting up the gold board as regulator, and forming a domestic gold council as the policy advisory body, said sources.
The Budget session of Parliament is likely to discuss the gold board. A Bill for the Precious Metals Board of India Act, 2019, is ready and after the new Cabinet’s approval, it will be introduced in Parliament. The board has already started basic functioning under the finance ministry but its operations are not yet formalised. The gold board will be set up in line with regulators such as Sebi or the Forward Markets Commission, which was later merged with Sebi. According to sources, once the Precious Metals Board starts functioning, it will work on norms for a gold spot exchange, which will ensure that any gold trade above 5 gm goes through the online exchange for transparency and to track the end user.
Along with the Bureau of Indian Standards, it will finalise good delivery norms, making gold refined in India acceptable globally.The government is also considering making gold as an asset class, a source said. As on now, sovereign gold bonds are also an asset but when gold formally becomes an asset class, one can invest in it and on maturity, investors will receive the precious metal. For this, banks and financial intermediaries will be asked to open gold metal accounts.
Our View: In short (a) The government wants household in India to deposit gold and earn interest on gold. This in turn will reduce Indian gold imports. My advise to people of India is not to get lured by any government scheme that will ask you to deposit gold and earn interest. Later all the schemes will be taxable under various acts like Wealth Tax, Income tax and GST. There can be even harassment by tax officials over the source of your gold deposited even though the same could inherited by you. It will be nothing but a “Gold demonetization scheme”. (b) Government wants to track the end buyer of every gold sold over five grams. Gold gifted by you to anyone could be subject to provisions under the Gift tax act. Various clubbing provisions under the Income tax could also be applied to you. (c) Tracking of new gold purchases over 5 grams prevents conversion of black money into gold and nothing else. (d) Gold smuggling will increase in India. Smuggled gold will command a premium over current prices as black money will be used to invest in smuggled gold.
