Friendship friendship, and money apart? Turkey withdraws gold from the US Federal Reserve


The report notes that at the end of 2016, the gold reserves of the Central Bank of Turkey, kept in the US Federal Reserve System, amounted to 28,689 tons, while at the end of 2017, there is a dash in the corresponding box.

According to the Milliyet newspaper, the largest Turkish private banks also brought out their gold reserves from abroad by responding to the call of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan "to get rid of the pressure of exchange rates and use gold against the dollar." Thus, Halk Bankası also transferred gold stored in Turkey in the amount of 29 tons to Turkey. According to sources of the publication, only 220 tons of gold were returned to the country from abroad.

It became known that Ziraat Bankası and VakıfBank (57 and 38 tons, respectively) began the procedures for returning their gold reserves from the UK.

Relations between Turkey and the United States are in crisis because of the support provided by the United States to the Syrian Kurdish self-defense forces, which Ankara considers a terrorist group associated with the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), banned in Turkey, RIA News

      By the way, Germany has also been producing gold for several years.

      And we withdraw the currency of US bonds. Although I think that 2 billion dollars a year with interest is a good income to the budget. With which are built the same schools, nurseries, hospitals and the military budget.

      repeat Russia removes reserves from the USA at a record speed

      For the third month in a row, Russia has reduced investments in US government bonds and transferred reserves to securities of European countries and to deposits in private banks amid worsening relations with the West and falling prices on the US government debt market.

      According to the US Ministry of Finance, for the period from December to February, the manager of the currency reserves of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation sold treasuries by $ 11,9 billion, reducing its investment by 11,2%.

      The total amount of gold reserves of Russia has also increased since the beginning of the year - from 431,6 to 453,4 billion dollars, of which 362,4 billion is foreign currency.

      The Central Bank is actively replenishing its reserves by buying up dollars, euros and pounds sterling in the interests of the Ministry of Finance, which withdraws from rubles all budget revenues from oil prices above 43,8 dollars per barrel. The barrel is currently trading above $ 74.

          The United States and NATO brought Erdogan to a boil with his interventions in Turkey’s internal (and foreign-political) affairs. So I decided to hide my little gold away from sin, the tonnage is not small, but the banker is unpredictable.

        And they forgot to say that we are buying up gold at a record pace ... Something is clearly coming on the financial field, and this is most likely to be called - CRISIS, the crisis of the global currency - the dollar. And he is already preparing a replacement, in the form of various cryptocurrencies. The main thing is to take these levers out of the hands of the United States. But all this without blood will not pass

      It is not a matter of politics, but a pure economy. Recently, the Turkish lira has depreciated significantly against the dollar. In addition, Erdogan identified significant, billions of investments in Turkish breakthrough projects, in particular on the development of a purely national car and engine building. All this creates pressure on the lyre. Therefore, the government decided so to say. keep all eggs in one basket.

      The Chinese have checked. About three years ago, they were not too lazy to cut an ingot from the USA and found a tungsten ingot under gilding, which has almost the same density as gold, and therefore does not go beyond the specified size of the ingot at the indicated weight.

    And before that, Turkey did not have enough space to keep its gold reserves? It seems that looking at Turkey and others who have entrusted their gold to the United States, they will follow her example. Too unreliable "partner" of the United States - today they gave the floor, tomorrow they took it.

      In preparing a physical gold alternative to the US dollar, Russia increased its gold reserves by 280% from the first quarter of 2006 to the second quarter of 2016 (from 386.5 tons to 1,498.7 tons), while for China this figure increased over the period by 203% (from 600 tons to 1,823.3 t). China is invariably opaque about its activities in the gold market.
      Based on Chinese production volumes and reliable data on gold exports from Hong Kong and Switzerland to mainland China, there is reason to conclude that the current size of Chinese gold reserves is almost 4,000 tons - that is, it has grown by 567% since 2006. A comparable growth rate for Turkey is 308%. There is no reliable data for Iran, however, a significant amount of gold is exported from Turkey and Dubai to Iran and there is reason to believe that Iran is also a growing gold power relative to the size of its economy. Russia, China, Turkey and Iran represent the new Golden Axis, ready to undermine confidence in the US dollar.

      For withdrawal, or for refund? The last cases of seizure of gold by mattresses were from Gaddafi, then 10 tons were recovered from Cyprus. Now the turnips are being scratched from someone else to pick up, as the line of people wishing to return gold from American vaults to their homeland is growing.

    The only news is that in the report opposite the line “gold reserve” there is a dash. The rest is blah blah blah. It will be interesting to find out later, for example, that Turkey did not export anything, and the United States seized the metal in its favor. Or they paid for something.

      The old question is, does America have this gold? Someone conducted an audit there?

      Gold reserves of about 60 other states are partially or fully stored in the USA. The volume of these reserves is not published in the press. Basically, this gold (about 7000 tons) is located in the underground storage of the Federal Reserve Bank in New York. The United States avoids a real audit of these and its reserves, which is the source of various theories.
      The maximum gold reserve in the EU. Russia is in 5th place, but according to Chinese data (which has not been around for 2 years) it is not known how many they have at the moment.
      Audit in the USA is not good. Promises Trump this time.
      The United States produces a lot of gold (entering the top three miners), but the demand for gold is simply great.
      Nevada - over 80% production.

    I wonder how much time is allotted to Erdogan? I think in the course of the year another “color revolution” can happen in Turkey! The first was De Gaulle, he withdrew the gold reserves of France from the United States and slowly “leaked” it .... And when the head of the IMF said that “we must move away from the domination of the US dollar ...” he (suddenly) slipped a prostitute into a hotel room and also "leaked." So Erdogan may be the next.

      Well, you won’t take Erdogash’s prostitutes or students, but the physical presence of Turkish gold under the roof of Russian S-400 complexes is much more reliable than its physical presence in the United States under the promises of the Patriots. Here, as they say, a crane under a bed instead of a medical duck in the sky.
