Durden: Le riserve auree del Venezuela scendono ai minimi, Maduro vende l'oro per ripagare i debiti


Zero Hedge - Venezuela's Gold Reserves Plunge To Lowest Ever As Maduro Repays Debt With Gold

(...) And now it's official - the "gold for fiat" transaction has been officially concluded, and as the FT writes, Venezuela’s gold reserves have plunged to their lowest level on record after the country sold $1.7 billion of the precious metal in the first quarter of the year to repay debts. The country is grappling with an economic crisis that has left it struggling to feed its population. 
The OPEC member’s gold reserves have dropped almost a third over the past year and it sold over 40 tonnes in February and March, according to IMF data. Gold now makes up almost 70% of the country’s total reserves, which fell to a low of $12.1 billion last week.
(...) Venezuela began selling its gold reserves in March 2015, according to IMF data. At roughly 367 tonnes, Venezuela has the world’s 16th-biggest gold reserves, according to the World Gold Council.

While Venezuela was selling, China and Russia were buying - perhaps from Maduro - and both have added to their gold holdings this year, the data show.

As a reminder, last year Venezuela’s central bank swapped part of its gold reserves for $1 bilion in cash through a complex agreement with Citi As the FT unnecessarily notes, the gold swap is another indication the country is desperate for cash... in case it was not obvious from the surge in murders, violence and general social unrest.
 
But the main reason why the gold liquidation will continue is that Venezuela and its national oil company PDVSA have some $6bn to repay in principal and interest payments this year. (...) 

Checcoglione Maduro. Chavez si stara' rigirando nella tomba, lui che e' stato il primo a lanciare la moda di rimpatriare l'oro patrio (patrio? Della Banca Centrale ...) .. maddai! Ma fallisci piuttosto un mese prima ma tientelo il tuo cazzo di oro, no?! 




E' la sola cosa di valore che ti resta (oltre al paese intero e le sue risorse :) ) .. fallisci un mese o due prima ma tientelo, cazzo! Con quello il tuo paese potra' avere una base da cui ricominciare... macche'. E proprio scemo. Un auto-austerista. Tz.
