In another example of governments seeking to expand their gold reserves, the Kazakhstan central bank announced last month that it plans to lock up domestic supplies of refined gold by using a “priority right” it received from the government to buy bullion designated for exports amid record prices for the metal.
Kazakhstan’s central bank said it would be buying up the Central Asian nation’s entire gold bullion output until at least 2014-15 to ease its exposure to the sagging dollar.

To follow the ongoing commentary on the price of Gold is like drinking from a fire hydrant. However, every once in a while we see some interesting perspectives out there.
Bloomberg just published an opinion piece that we thought was interesting. They put a bit of a prick in the bubble of those that link the precious metal’s 27 percent increase in dollar terms during the past year to signal ominous things to come. However, they argue that:
Yes, price surges for gold don’t always reflect genuine fears and the need for disaster-proof investments.
And, yes, gold’s price may continue to climb this year. A recent Bloomberg News survey of 31 analysts, investors and gold- mine operators found respondents, on average, predicting a year- end price of $1,750 an ounce, up significantly from recent levels of about $1,530. If such a rise occurs, however, it’s likely to reflect normal public demand for a shiny commodity, rather than a far- sighted warning to the world’s central bankers.
