Do not renounce the ruble. Outsider tips


The gold and foreign exchange reserves accumulated by Russia, which, fortunately, are well diversified, should help the country survive the crisis associated with coronavirus and falling hydrocarbon prices almost painlessly. Authoritative experts have already considered that the stock, which for a long time was considered inviolable, will last for 7-10 years or more.


This is cheaper for oil at $ 30 per barrel. Although no one can guarantee such a level of quotes today. Due to coronavirus vacations, which can drag on at least until the summer, oil demand, however, cannot fall to zero. US authorities have already decided to take advantage of the situation and replenish their strategic oil reserve cheaply.

Not a single oil ...


You might think that this was hinted at by the participants of recent meetings on OPEC + in Vienna, who spoke about some measures to stabilize the oil market. The Russian authorities ignored all the hints from Vienna, having got involved in the oil war with OPEC and specifically with Saudi Arabia. The solution, oddly enough, could be right from the point of view of maintaining niches in the markets, if not for one “but” ...

If for cheap oil did not have to answer sharply cheaper ruble! For a weak ruble, of course, ordinary citizens will be responsible. Note that these are by no means oligarchs who do not really need high oil prices, since all surplus export earnings have long gone to the treasury. In addition, the business regarding foreign exchange operations still remains in greenhouse conditions.

Where does the financial special forces look


Recall that it was in the interests of business in Russia from the beginning of the 2000s that the course towards liberalization of the currency legislation was adopted. The small rollback that happened in 2014, with the outbreak of the sanctions war, can be ignored altogether, since today exporters are practically no longer fined even for not returning foreign exchange earnings.

To begin with, only the elect were not fined, but today it seems that they are not fined just anyone. As a result, the currency travels across the borders of Russia as freely as possible. Meanwhile, one cannot help but recall that a complete financial collapse was avoided in the fall of 1998, not least due to drastic measures to tighten currency and export controls.

Do not renounce the ruble. Outsider tips

At a time when the Russian government was headed by Evgeny Primakov, the specialized service for currency and export control (EEC) received unprecedented authority, and the Central Bank and the Ministry of Finance got under its press. The powers of the EEC have been backed up by an enviable right for any fiscal to accept without deduction, albeit by a court decision, to write off virtually any amount from the accounts of companies violating the currency legislation.

This initiative, however, with the departure of Primakov quickly turned off, and instead of the EEC acquired financial intelligence, which then turned into Rosfinmonitoring. Since then, financial special forces have been exclusively engaged in collecting information, or rather, compromising evidence on everyone and everything in order to present it to anyone on the first go-ahead from above.

Once the abolition of tight currency controls for businesses was rightly called a bold decision. Now is the time to cancel it. And do not try again and again to pump up business structures with a currency vaccine in the form of uncontrolled distribution of anti-crisis “aid packages”. All billions of state reserves, by the way, will immediately end up in offshore accounts, which no financial special forces will be able to control.

Not devaluation needed, but diversification


The Russian authorities, by all indications, as after the default, and at the turn of 2008-2009, and under sanctions in the fall of 2014, are ready to solve all problems due to the devaluation of the ruble. That is, due to ordinary citizens. Moreover, reserves should be squandered, or rather, not squandered, but scattered on their own into their offshore accounts.


At the same time, continuing to convince the public, as Ms. Valentina does (not the one who offered us the tenure of the president, but the one who presides in the Senate) that all social obligations will be fulfilled. So who would calculate what these “obligations” would cost if the ruble fell? Fallen 30-40 percent, or even, God forbid, more? ..

Meanwhile, to stabilize the ruble at the moment, there is not even a direct need to fully utilize foreign exchange reserves. It’s quite possible to hold on to these more than 500 billion and use it better for maintaining at a low, relatively, of course, level of socially significant tariffs, from utilities to fuel.

For currency interventions in favor of the ruble, with good information support, the Central Bank’s operational reserve, that is, those funds that have not yet been put into a long-term reserve and have not been transferred to various untouchable assets, will be quite sufficient. By the way, assets are still 80-90 percent dollar and denominated in euros.

But the most effective measure in favor of the ruble would be to restore the practice of tight foreign exchange control. And first of all, it is necessary to promptly introduce real, not declarative restrictions on the cross-border movement of capital. The return of export earnings should again become the norm, and it is these funds that will be enough to maintain the ruble at a level that does not hit prices, but also maintains a comfortable competitive environment for domestic enterprises.

The whole question is that such decisions require political will, the ability to ignore the moaning of business representatives, that is, all sorts of lobbies and the close ties of government officials. The critical situation allows us now to simply ignore the well-known conditions of the Washington consensus. If you continue to follow directions that are not direct, but from this no less ultimatum, from the IMF and others, you just have to admit that we are an oil and gas colony, which is not just Nord Stream 2, but a barn in a country house cannot be built without permission.

Not April Theses


In the meantime, March is on the street, but the biggest difficulties must be expected in fact in April. It is better for business and ordinary citizens to follow those simple rules that were announced by many in 1998 and 2014.


Firstly, it is necessary to minimize, as far as possible, operations with foreign currency. The old principle of diversification (in Russian: do not put all your eggs in one basket) will not be canceled, although the vast majority of the population of Russia, by and large, has nothing to diversify today.

Nevertheless, at some specific moment, it is better to keep the funds in the currency in which they are to be spent. It is clear that, when traveling to Europe, it is better to acquire the euro, and to Turkey or Egypt - in dollars, since they grow there with local currencies no worse than with the ruble.

It is also useful for entrepreneurs to follow a similar pattern, but it is even better to try to achieve the so-called mutual compensation of risks. It turns out when there are markets where you can sell goods and services for the same currency in which you invested in them.

It is difficult, but it is possible, besides, do not forget that the Russian ruble remained, and somewhere, not so long ago, became actually convertible. And this is not only about the former republics of the USSR, right up to the Baltic states and Ukraine, which are trying by all means, but really cannot "go beyond the brackets." And this approach helps to avoid not only jumps in the exchange rate, but also the risks of fraud in foreign financial institutions.

For owners of large enough amounts, it’s nice to use the so-called currency options - contracts in which currency rates are firmly fixed for a strictly defined period. The advantage of options, almost the main one, can be considered the ability to abandon them at any time. This, of course, is risky, but at least some guarantee remains.

    Well, we got to the VO options site. Every month, I am called by some representatives of trading companies (sort of as they call themselves) of companies with a proposal to invest an equivalent of $ 1000 in currency options. These representatives were sent by me more than once, but they persistently called and called, and I send them all and send them ... A vicious circle. I don’t know, but I think these currency options are another pyramid.

      For this, the drunk also exchanged Primakov for Putin, so that this would not happen.

      Primakov himself testified to the pressure exerted on the EBN by oligarchic circles to replace the objectionable Primakov with a person convenient for oligarchs.

        Stepashka now continues to laze the power thresholds.

          Firstly, it is necessary to minimize, as far as possible, operations with foreign currency.

          Gee-gee-gee. Sell ​​and buy at the cordon only for rubles ..... and what, you can, and so, wassat it was here a couple of years ago such a “fad” - to sell “for rubles” –– even trumpeted all over Russia about the first deal on the diamond exchange –– sale of diamonds for rubles, though then everything quickly died out without continuation, and a little later it turned out that “they sold it themselves yourself, through the "daughter" and there was something connected with the "VAT refund" .... You can still do "mutually beneficial" barter, well, like with Malaysia, like we give them airplanes, and they weigh us in rapeseed and palm oil, yes
          Nevertheless, at some specific moment it is better to keep the funds in the currency in which they are to be spent ... It is also useful for entrepreneurs to act according to a similar scheme, but it is even better to try to achieve the so-called mutual compensation of risks.

          And this, in general, is a "masterpiece" of thought, a recommendation for all occasions that constantly sounds from the "experts" invited to the program "Good Morning!"
          True, here it is written that everything rests on:
          although the vast majority of the population of Russia, by and large, today has nothing to diversify.

          This, of course, does not apply to one part of the population in which both bank accounts abroad and in “cursed currency”, as well as real estate and families are located there. But we will not envy them, they will all die from the coronovirus there. fellow
          And we have ... In short, gentlemen - "do not teach me how to live, better help me financially." yes

    Perhaps, apart from food warehouses, there are no longer any reliable assets. Even bars in ounces can sag at times. Currencies themselves are under attack. The ruble can really easily be sent as an honorable sacrifice. And who controls the investments in the shares of "reliable enterprises" is generally a "mystery."

I remember there were several storms when people buying up salt raised the price to 25 rubles per kilogram, buckwheat to 180-200 rubles for the same weight.

            you are right but.
            panic and herd behavior of a network is nothing more than a survival tool honed and tested by evolution and selection by many hundreds and thousands of generations.
            often panic is without cause, but sometimes doing on instincts what the neighbor does on the right and left, the person survives.
            look like a herd of antelopes rushing headlong running away from a predator although 99.99% of them did not even see it out of the corner of their eyes.
            our nature, you know, is stronger than rational, sometimes it’s good that it’s so.

              Yes, but how does the presence of two televisions, three microwaves, a pair of refrigerators and other household appliances contribute to the survival of a human population? But in the past, the fall of the ruble, our fellow citizens swept away precisely this line of goods + jewelry and cars. Today, with the invasion of coronavirus, of course, preference is given to medical preparations and food products, which for obvious reasons is more rational in terms of survival. Taking into account the general global tendency to re-stock warehouses in connection with the overproduction of goods and falling consumer demand, we can conclude that there is a systematic and artificial increase in panic in order to stimulate an increase in sales. In this situation, pharmaceutical companies, food producers and retail chains will benefit. Last time, more than $ 100 billion was spent on combating SARS, which, as you know, smoothly flowed from budgets and deposits to the accounts of some interested. Now mortality does not exceed previous indicators, but informational support aimed at heating up panic moods has increased qualitatively, and this time these same interested people will earn several times more. Panic engine trade.

    It is easy for the government to fulfill social obligations by weakening the ruble. Continuity of Medvedev's course is maintained. But the fact that the promised increase in pension has been devoured with a good supply of inflation is a problem only for the pensioners themselves. In terms of numbers, everything comes out just fine. The economy is growing.

        To tie the pension to the dollar or euro and pay it at the rate in the current month? Interesting idea! All the same, businessmen translate their profits into currency. And oil, as already mentioned, is more profitable to sell for the euro. And the Russians do not have the euro, so it’s more profitable to sell abroad! So you see, gas pipes will not be pulled into every European house, but into every Russian one! fellow And if you also make salaries and prices at the rate of the euro !? No! Well, what !? Why not? Top managers can do that! Why is the population not allowed? belay

          So some experts suggested back in the 90s, to introduce a special “conventional unit” equivalent to the US dollar in Russia and recalculate salaries according to the formula “dollar exchange rate + average inflation” so that the purchasing power of the population does not fall inside the country and small and medium-sized develops national business. “Effective managers refused” —they relied on “external investments” and “maximizing the cost of domestic labor resources” by setting a minimum wage — to make these investments attractive. As a result, we have the current situation — a handful of billionaires with practically unlimited monetary and political resources and the rest of the country with a poor population who do not have free money to get out of poverty and economic bondage due to personal entrepreneurship due to the virtually complete absence of “free money” population to provide domestic consumption market. Russia is a country, oligarchs, officials with security officials and the poor ..

Low oil prices we are killing the American shale! The main thing is not to raise the price of oil above 50, the maximum (in the worst case scenario) is 60 bucks. This is the oil shale cut-off price at which oil shale mining starts to generate loot! Low prices will force the Saudis to pump out all their reserves. According to rumors, they are running out. So the Saudis are cut off. We will look at the remaining Iraq and Iran. Can create joint ventures for production. So that! Putin starts and wins! Make Champagne!

        both of these are the stupidities of these companies especially during the crisis. especially at the very beginning. salary reduction is possible only in two cases. or with your consent or unilaterally but under deadly motivation. By the way, they go very rarely for the second, because it is fraught. let's say in the place where I work it will destroy the company and they will never go for it. everyone just learning about it will immediately change their place of work. with it all. will leave entire departments and will not return back. and it turns out that not everyone can overcome the crisis in reductions.

    Unfortunately, we have to admit that the so-called dedolarization was carried out to remove airbags from the population.

    ----------
    Basel III’s decision meant that, on the balance sheets of world banks, gold as a reserve of the third category was previously valued at 50% of its value. Moreover, all the owners of world money traded gold not in kind, but on paper, without moving real metal, the volume of which in the world was not enough for real transactions. This was done in order to pin down the price of gold, to keep it as low as possible. First of all, it is in the interests of the dollar. After all, the dollar is tied to oil, which was supposed to cost no lower than the price of one gram of gold per barrel.

    And now "just" decided to classify gold not in the third, but in the first category. And that means that now it is possible to evaluate it not at 50, but at 100% of its value. This leads to a revaluation of the balance sheet currency. And as applied to Russia, this means that we can now calmly, for all legal reasons, pour almost 3 trillion rubles into the economy. To be precise, then 2,95 trillion rubles, or 45 billion dollars at the exchange rate plus the current balance sheet currency. The Central Bank of the Russian Federation can pour this money into our economy on all legal grounds. How he actually acts is not yet known. Haste here without calculating all the consequences is extremely dangerous. Although such an issue is considered non-inflationary, in fact everything is much more complicated.

    In the world for several months, nothing will change. U-turn will be very slow. The United States officially has a gold reserve of 8133,5 tons, but there is such a thing as a financial multiplier: banks print 20-30 paper computers for one gold dollar. That is, the United States may additionally receive officially only 170 billion dollars, and taking into account the multiplier, 4,5 trillion dollars. This explains why the Fed is keeping the interest rate up and while maintaining a course to lower the balance sheet currency - they are afraid of a jump in hyperinflation.

    But all the largest states, holders of gold, will now overestimate their gold and currency reserves. These are Germany, Italy, France, Russia, China and Switzerland - countries where the gold reserve exceeds 1 thousand tons. Notice - in this list there is no inflated Britain. Its reserves are less than 1000 tons. Experts suspect that perhaps it was not by chance that the dates of Britain's exit from the EU coincided with the date of Basel III. The increased financial power of the leaders of Europe in Germany and France is able to completely complete the defeat of Britain on the European continent. It was necessary to take away the legs as quickly as possible.


    Thus, we can seem to be congratulated - the era of the dollar, which lasts from 1944 to 2019, is over. Now gold has been restored in its rights and is not exchange metal, but world money on a par with the dollar, euro and the British pound. Now gold will rise in price, and its price will rise from 1200-1400 dollars per troy ounce to 1800-2000 dollars by this fall. Now it’s clear why Russia and China all these years so stubbornly poured export revenues into the growth of gold reserves. There was a situation when no one will sell gold in the world now.

    Injecting extra money to the world economy will last for 5-6 months. In the United States, this money can be used to repay astronomical debt on debt. Perhaps this was not the last motive for such a decision of Zurich. But the main thing all the same is an attempt to slip out of the leaning tower of the leaning tower of Pisa.

    Vangyu - the rich will live richer, the poor - poorer. State Duma deputies will raise their salaries. In 2014, after the fall of the price of the ruble against the dollar, their salary was raised from 260 thousand to 400 thousand. So God forbid the deputies did not feel deprived. We will rejoice for the deputies, for the glory of Russia they work tirelessly, they pass laws, they press buttons, in the end they are patriots! Probably.

    The main problem here is (and this cannot be solved by any articles) that the people absolutely do not trust the authorities. Especially in matters of finance. And it’s not a matter of some “enemy voices”. Unfortunately, the most correct criterion for assessing power, namely, “don’t listen to what they say, look at what they do,” stably gives the same result.
    In the event of any disturbances, the people will be deceived first, and then they will be thrown as much as they can. We have been living like this for over 30 years. We have many years of experience and a fresh picture before our eyes. Guys, at least write down your articles ...

      The question of trust is very intimate. Believe only in yourself. The people, regardless of the government, continue to carry money into the pyramids, take out extraordinary loans ....... And in a crisis, and without a crisis, any time of the year. Moreover, the main thing is to appoint a guilty person, so as not to choke on his own stupidity.
      From the latter it follows that anyone going to the authorities (and a leader of any level) will certainly be appointed guilty no matter what.

          Dear Michael3! Sorry, with a small letter. As stated in the name, I appeal.
          I do not agree with you and that is why. Belief in oneself, in my opinion, involves initiative, enterprise, and "scumbag." During the Civil War, the bulk of such people (kulaks, merchants, bourgeois) were destroyed. The country turned into a herd, which was commanded. And not always effective. You can object that I did not live in that period. Taki, studied and served ...
          When the reform of Pavlovna began, I asked relatives to spend all the money that was in Sberbank. They told me that the state will not deceive. As a result, left with nothing. Then there were a couple of times. Well, people do not want to think and live with their brains. A healthy individualism is even a blessing.

    It is not clear ....
    But this - "... although the vast majority of the population of Russia, by and large, today have nothing to diversify ..." - where did he get it? Is there specifics in numbers without emotions? Type, "on average, on account of the average citizen of the Russian Federation, as of the date of publication of this article," 0 integers and as many tenths "had accumulated ...
    I mean, there are some other data, "vice versa," exactly.
    And yet, about savings and bucks with bucks ... Let me say:
    If you believe the media, then in Europe there is already an economic crisis. If you believe the same media, then the states and the rest of the world, too, "here, and kirdyk." I mean, if you believe the media (an almost complete halt to the economy in Italy, the impending crisis in Germany, etc.), the euro currency should already turn into a powder.
    Well, really? ...
    If Fiat and Porsche stop the machines and stop giving the “product” and then stop selling such products, then the euro ceases to be an interesting denomination, because there is nothing to buy for it. And not just the Porsche. For example, banal milk from the Baltic states with fruits from Poland and olives from Chrezia, it seems, is also not produced under the conditions of the virus ...
    When life stops (including economic life) in a single European state, the chain beats mercilessly across all the countries of this "Europe."
    And if, for example, in some other “Eastern European country” at that very time “plants are working, they produce products, mow hay, feed cows, milk milk” (according to the media of this same “country”), then den . The unit of just such a state becomes very attractive, resilient and solvent.
    Is the hint clear?
    This is how a normal economy works under the conditions of “goods - money - goods” ...
    But the “economy” works in a completely different way if, in a simple chain between a manufacturer, a logistician, a seller and a buyer, he comes across an insolent man in a three-piece suit and in glasses with a briefcase called “banker-manager-broger”. And the circus begins with "trading on exchanges" and all sorts of indices.
    I am 100% sure: "they are fooling our brother."
