ABN Amro rivede le sue previsioni per l'oro

Gulf News - Revised forecasts: Gold to hit $1,100 in 2015, $900 in 2016
Analysts revise gold forecasts following latest Fed minutes

By Cleofe Maceda, October 11, 2015
Dutch bank ABN Amro has revised its year-end gold forecast from $1,000 to $1,100 per ounce, citing that the US dollar is likely to be weaker than earlier expected, while the United States Federal Reserve is seen to adjust the rates only in 2016. By the end of next year, gold is expected to drop to $900, instead of $800.  

Erano loro che prevedevano l'oro a 1000 per fine anno e a 800 per il 2016. Revisione (causa Fed che non rialza i tassi neanche quest'anno): 1100 per fine anno e 900 per l'anno prossimo

The precious metal has not reached this year’s bottom yet, so there will still be further price adjustments over the next few days or weeks.

E secondo la banca olandese i metalli non hanno ancora raggiunto i minimi minimi, che verranno raggiunti nei prossimi giorni o settimane, dicono. Wishfull thinking?

    ABN è una della banche marce salvate con grano pubblico nel 2008
    e hanno fatto default proprio sull'oro «dei propri clienti»

    terremo sicuramente conto del parere di questi esimi geni della finanza


    Impact of the 2008 financial crisis
    On 22 April 2008, RBS announced the largest rights issue in British corporate history, which aimed to raise £12billion in new capital to offset a writedown of £5.9billion resulting from the bad investments and to shore up its reserves following the purchase of ABN AMRO.
    On 13 October 2008, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown announced a UK government bailout of the financial system. The Treasury would infuse £37 billion ($64 billion, €47 billion) of new capital into Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc, Lloyds TSB and HBOS Plc, to avert financial sector collapse. This resulted in a total government ownership in RBS of 58%.
    In January 2009, RBS announced a loss of £28bn of which £20bn was due to the ABN AMRO acquisition.At the same time, the government converted its preference shares to ordinary shares resulting in a 70% ownership of RBS.

    On 11 July 2008, Fortis CEO Jean Votron, stepped down after the ABN AMRO deal had depleted Fortis's capital. The total worth of Fortis, as reflected by its stock value, was at that time one-third of what it had been before the acquisition, and just under the value it had paid for the Benelux activities of ABN AMRO.

    Dutch government ownership
    Continuing problems with Fortis operations during the 2008 financial crisis led to the Dutch government to obtain full control of all Fortis operations in the Netherlands, including those parts of ABN-AMRO then belonging to Fortis for €16.8bn. The government and the De Nederlandsche Bank president have announced the merger of Dutch Fortis and ABN AMRO parts will proceed while the bank is in state ownership. This was completed in July 2010 when Fortis operations in the Netherlands were rebranded ABN AMRO.

    Default on gold delivery contracts
    On March 2013, ABN AMRO issued a letter to its gold contract customers notifying that it would default on its obligation to deliver allocated gold to its clients. By taking advantage of legal tender laws, the firm offered to compensate the loss to its clients using Fiat money rather than actual gold.

    1. Gia' ... chissa' se anche ING (conto arancio, altra banca olandese) ha finito di ripagare agli olandesi il salvataggio di allora ...
