    Will the gold ruble be the demise of the FRN?

    Russia’s backing to the ruble has provided support to the gold market…
    Bill Holter with Chris Marcus on Arcadia Economics

    Despite #WallStreet pricing in 200 basis points of interest rate increases before the end of 2022, the gold price continues to flirt with $2000 per ounce. Largely because of the developments in #Russia, where their quasi-gold-backing to the ruble has provided support to the gold market.

    Which is not the easiest situation to reconcile. Although fortunately Bill Holter of JS Mineset joined me on the show to explain what’s happening, what to watch out for, and what he’s expecting next.

    I consider it a pipe dream regardless of currency backing. Ruble, Dollar, Euro, Yuan, Pound. Ain't going to happen. Corporatists run the show.

    I think there are many who are more knowledgeable than I that share your thoughts.

    RUSSIA » ECONOMICS

    The Bank of Russia will continue buying gold at a fixed price of 5,000 rubles ($59) per 1 gram until June 30. Russia may thus have a chance to return to the gold standard for the first time in over a hundred years.

    According to BullionStar Singapore precious metals analyst Ronan Manley, Russia's decision to switch to rubles in settlements with counterparties will entail significant consequences for the Russian currency, for the US dollar, and for the entire global economy.

    According to him, by pegging the ruble to gold, which is traded in US dollars, the Bank of Russia set a minimum price for the ruble in US dollar terms.
    "Back on March 25, the ruble was traded at 100 rubles per one US dollar. Now the Russian ruble has gone up to 80 rubles per dollar. This is because gold is traded on international markets at about 62 dollars per gram, which is equivalent to (5,000/62) = about 80.5. Both the markets and arbitrage traders have taken note of this, and the RUB/USD rate has increased," Ronan Manley said in an interview with RT.
    With the new peg of gold to the ruble, the strengthening of the Russian currency will affect the price of gold, the expert added.
    The energy market will react too

    Russia is the world's largest natural gas exporter and the world's third largest oil exporter. Having switched into Russian rubles in settlements for energy resources, Russia pegged the price of gas to it and then to the price of gold, due to the fixed connection with gold. In a nutshell, the Russian gas is now linked with gold through the ruble.
    "The same can now be done with Russian oil. If Russia begins to demand payment for oil exports with rubles, there will be an immediate indirect peg to gold (via the fixed price ruble — gold connection). Then Russia could begin accepting gold directly in payment for its oil exports. In fact, this can be applied to any commodities, not just oil and natural gas," Ronan Manley told RT.
    By playing with both sides of the equation, that is, by pegging the ruble to gold and then pegging energy payments to the ruble, the Bank of Russia and the Kremlin fundamentally change all the working assumptions of the global trading system, accelerating changes in the global monetary system, he says.

    What does this mean for the ruble?

    The pegging of the ruble to gold through the fixed price of the Bank of Russia has now laid the foundation for the RUB/USD rate and thus stabilized and strengthened the Russian currency.
    "Demanding that natural gas exports are paid for in rubles (and possibly oil and other commodities down the line) will again act as stabilization and support. If a majority of the international trading system begins accepting these rubles for commodity payments arrangements, this could propel the Russian ruble to becoming a major global currency. At the same time, any move by Russia to accept direct gold for oil payments will cause more international gold to flow into Russian reserves, which would also strengthen the balance sheet of the Bank of Russia and in turn strengthen the ruble."
    According to the analyst, we are now witnessing the birth of a new monetary system, which is going to be backed by gold and raw materials, rather than by the supremacy of the US dollar.

    You don't suppose they would consider offering Russian Afghanistan war bonds at discounted prices?

    The Russian banks are only buying gold, NOT selling, so not really a ‘gold backed’ ruble.
