Bloomberg notes that India's gold import limits are currency market intervention


8:11a ET Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Bloomberg News acknowledges offhandedly today that by restricting the import of gold into the country India's government intends intervention in the currency market, supporting the rupee. Maybe in another few decades Bloomberg will get around to noting the involvement of other central banks in the gold market for currency-support purposes. The Bloomberg story is headlined "India Gold Imports Seen Dropping as Rajan Protects Rupee" and it can be found here:

Meanwhile The Wall Street Journal notes the increasingly ingenious attempts of Indians to smuggle the monetary metal past those government regulations. The report is headlined "India's Gold Smugglers Innovate to Evade Customs" and it's posted here:

Own Allocated And -- Most Importantly -- Segregated Bullion

If you do not own segregated physical coins and bars that you can take delivery of, you do not own bullion. International diversification remains key, and Hong Kong, Singapore, and of course Zurich remain the safest locations for owning and storing segregated bullion.
