Turkey, Russia, Ukraine & Kazakhstan Diversify in Gold

Russia’s bullion reserves climbed to 911.3 tons last month when gold averaged $1,587.68 an ounce, data on the IMF’s website showed. Ukraine’s climbed 2.1 tons to 32.7 tons and Kazakhstan boosted reserves by 1.8 tons to 100 tons, the data show.
Central banks are expanding reserves due to the Eurozone debt crisis and concerns about fiat currency debasement.
Central banks are on course to buy more bullion this year than the purchases of about 456 tons in 2011 as countries diversify their reserves.
 Turkey has allowed banks to hold more of their reserves in gold to provide extra liquidity. The central bank this month raised the proportion of reserve requirements that can be held in foreign exchange to 50% from 45%, while the limit for gold was increased to 25% from 20%. The changes will add as much as $2.2 billion to gold reserves.
Gold accounts for about 9.1% of Russia’s total reserves, 5.1% of Ukraine’s and 15% of Kazakhstan’s, according to the World Gold Council. That compares with more than 70% for the US and Germany, the biggest bullion holders, according to Bloomberg figures.
Kazakhstan plans to raise the amount of gold it holds as part of its reserves to 20%, Bisengaly Tadzhiyakov, deputy chairman of the country’s central bank, said earlier this month.
Central bank demand and Chinese demand alone should be enough to put a floor under prices near these levels and gold looks well positioned for another summer rally akin to the one seen last July and August (see chart above).

"Ya Allah, sesungguhnya waktu duha itu waktu duhaMu, kecantikannya kecantikanMu, keindahannya keindahanMu, kekuatannya kekuatanMu, kekuasaannya kekuasaanMu, perlindungannya perlindunganMu.

Ya Allah. jika rezekiku masih di langit, turunkanlah; jika rezekiku di perut bumi, keluarkanlah, jika rezekiku haram, sucikanlah, jika rezekiku sukar, permudahkanlah, jika rezekiku jauh, dekatlah...

Limpahkan kepadaku segala yang Engkau telah limpahkan kepada hamba-hambaMu yang soleh."
*Marilah kita sama-sama mengerjakan Solat Duha, sesungguhnya fadhilat solat ini ialah pintu rezeki kita akan terbuka luas, insyaAllah.
