@Leon @goldfinger - #India is the second biggest #gold buyer. Obviously, the Indian government is NOT concidering any proposals to restrict gold holdings. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/business/india-business/Demonetisation-No-proposal-to-restrict-gold-holding-by-individuals/articleshow/55623455.cms However, the opposition has organised an all-India protest for tomorrow. www.firstpost.com/india/opposition-to-organise-all-india-protest-on-28-november-heres-all-you-need-to-know-about-it-3122302.html

@TheHolyBuyBull Be careful about waiting too long to get a better price on gold. Missing the move up can hurt a lot more than paying a little bit less. #india

@newstracker Indian shares rose on Tuesday for a second consecutive session after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI)said lenders had received 8.45 trillion rupees ($123.07 billion) in deposits, a substantial amount of the notes that were declared worthless earlier this month. http://in.reuters.com/article/india-sensex-nifty-stock-markets-idINKBN13O0HU? #India

@newstracker #Gold#India and #China - The Indian government is shocking the economy into paying taxes due and rooting out the profits of endemic corruption - It remains to be seen if corrupt practices and traditions can be erased in a single move but one is hopeful none the less. - Local gold prices rose on the first day of the government crackdown as gold buyers sought to use gold traders to launder their larger denomination currency - The government reacted by threatening to restrict gold imports and investigate traders etc… slamming shut this avenue - Many recent deposits will be considered by the Indian revenue to be the product of unpaid tax with the government seizing half of the deposits and placing a further 25% into low-interest bearing deposit accounts for a period of four years. Questions may then be asked of the depositors as to where the funds came from and used to asses future earnings from businesses. - India is going to go through some painfull adjustment as a result and the impact on gold is hard to determine, though gold may become a more favoured currency as the dust settles Source: http://spangel.co.uk/

@MiningBookGuy India: Changes to demonetisation policy sparks anger http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2016/12/india-demonetisation-161202095210789.html #India #CashCrisis #mbgtrends Partial Quote: "The Indian government has announced that old notes will no longer be accepted at petrol stations after Friday, fuelling anger over the scrapping of high denomination bills that has caused an unprecedented cash crunch. Indians had been given until December 15 to use the old bills at filling stations but the government rushed forward the deadline on Thursday evening, giving millions of commuters still using the old 500 rupee notes barely 24 hours to spend them."

@MiningBookGuy Great overview by @FrankHolmes on #India #CashCrisis, though I'm not sure I agree with this section, and it's a bit vague: [Ironically, though, Modi’s demonetization scheme will likely hurt gold demand in the long run, “by dramatically reducing the stock of black money hitherto used in a large chunk of purchases,” according to the Financial Times.] @FrankHolmes/modis-demonetization-is-a-cure-worse-than-the-disease

@MiningBookGuy Money-Laundering Networks Thrive Amid India’s Cash-Ban Chaos https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-12-04/money-laundering-networks-thrive-amid-india-s-cash-ban-chaos #India #CashCrisis #BlackMoney #mbgtrends Partial Quotes: "While the government has been working to close loopholes -- which Prime Minister Narendra Modi decried as people’s "illegal means to save their ill-gotten wealth" in a radio address last week -- new ones are opening even faster. So far, the policy aimed at reducing the scale of the black economy and bringing more people into the tax net is, in the short term, leading to just the reverse: money-laundering, tax-avoidance, and new opportunities for existing organized crime, the evolution of the long-standing hawala money-transfer system, and the start of new illicit networks." ... "Individuals are transporting millions of rupees on trains or vehicles, and the big money-laundering networks have been chartering flights to transport crateloads of cash to India’s northeast from small airfields, the lawyer said."

@Oliver "..While paper gold traders can't seem to dump the precious metal fast enough, physical gold demand is soaring around the world. #India retail premiums are spiking (amid demonetization), local #China premiums soar to a 3-year-high (as capital controls loom), and coin sales from the US Mint have risen for the 4th straight month, accelerating post-election to the highest since July 2015 since Trump's victory at the election.." $GLD #gold #physical

@newstracker "Corruption, fraud and illegal mining are persistent problems for the mining industry in Indian states such as Goa, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. While policing and government reforms can help to tackle these issues, the industry is increasingly turning to sophisticated sensor-based tracking systems to improve transparency in the management and transport of mining commodities." http://www.mining-technology.com/features/featuretackling-mining-corruption-with-tech-in-india-4939202/ #India #Corruption

@MiningBookGuy Cash chaos in Venezuela after banknote withdrawn http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2016/12/cash-chaos-venezuela-banknote-withdrawn-161216132241925.html #Venezuela #CashCrisis #Inflation #mbgtrends The ~2 minute clip was useful. Things do NOT look as chaotic as #india (though it's surely worse). Lots of similarities with the ATM fiascos. And people stealing the industrial metals in the middle of the video, an important #signal for this type of #inflation anywhere in the world, useful to see this.

@MiningBookGuy @anonymous - thanks for your thoughts here. great point about people stealing metal a few years ago...i remember a few of those stories as well. i feel bad about all catastrophes...but especially the 'man-made' ones, where we know for sure they did NOT have to happen this way. unfortunately, #venezuela is the best current example of this, and i am concerned #india is one that is starting to go down that path now...other countries as well that are less well-known/reported, and surely more to follow.

@newstracker A Forbes report authored by a former McKinsey consultant says that the UK's GDP in 2016 was £1.87 trillion, which, given the 20 per cent decline in the value of the pound over the course of 2016, translated to $2.29 trillion. The report cites India’s 2016 GDP as being Rs. 153 trillion, which converts to $2.30 trillion at an exchange rate of Rs. 66.6 per dollar. According to Indian newspaper the Hindu, this claim is false after they conducted an analysis on data from the IMF, Government of India and currency data from the central bank. http://www.thehindu.com/business/Economy/Reality-check-Indian-economy-is-not-larger-than-that-of-the-UK/article16925514.ece? #India

@nlepan India’s gasoline consumption continues to grow rapidly as an increasing number of individuals purchase their first motorized vehicle, helping drive the fastest growth in fuel demand in the world. India's gasoline consumption has increased more than 12 per cent in 2016 compared to 2015. Consumption is being driven by an enormous increase in the number of drivers on the country’s roads for the first time. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-india-gasoline-kemp-idUSKBN14U1Y8 #energy #India

@nlepan Demonetization in India has put a kink in production at the diamond cutting and polishing hub of Surat which has resulted in a price increase over the past month of 2% to 3%. Rising prices have helped exporters which has offset some the adverse effects of the removal of paper currency. Diamond mining companies such as De Beers, ALROSA, Rio Tinto and Dominion Diamond have also not forced Indian processors to lift higher volumes of diamonds. http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/industry/cons-products/fashion-/-cosmetics-/-jewellery/note-ban-takes-the-sheen-off-diamond-industry/articleshow/56513241.cms? #diamonds #India

@nicholaslepan The search for #gold is set to resume in the Indian province of Andhra Pradesh with one of the private firms, which got licence for prospecting studies, submitting its proposals to the ministry of environment, forests and climate change seeking forest clearance.The new search for gold is likely to give motivation to the government's plans to set up a gold refinery in Krishna district. The Indian Bureau of Mines has estimated that Andhra Pradesh has a potential gold ore of 1.22 crore tonnes. Earlier estimates had put the reserves at about 68 lakh tonnes of gold ore. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/hyderabad/after-a-decade-golden-era-back-in-andhra-pradesh/articleshow/56697664.cms? #India
