It’s official! Russian Central Bank announces that the ruble is tied to gold! 5000 rubles per gram.
The Central Bank of Russia has officially announced that the Russian ruble will be tied to gold as of March 28, 2022, The rate is 5,000 rubles per gram of gold ingots.
There are 28 grams in each ounce. 28 grams for 5,000 rubles per gram is 140,000 rubles.
Are you following me this far?
The conversion rate of rubles into US dollar is 100 rubles, 90 pounds, for each US dollar.
If the rubles are tied to gold at 5000 rubles per gram, and there are 28 grams per ounce, which means that an ounce of gold would cost 140,000 rubles, then the conversion into US dollars means that gold costs 1400 dollars per ounce when used the rubles, instead of 1,928 dollars by ounce using the dollars.
People all over the world are literally throwing their money on the ruble.
Let me explain why.
Today, the Central Bank of Russia anchored the ruble to gold.
Last week, Russia said it would sell only OIL and GAS in . . . . Ruble!
This means that Russian oil and gas are anchored in gold with rubles like gold proxy.
EFFECT: Europe (which needs Russian gas and oil) will now have to buy rubles from Putin using gold, or pay for oil and gas with gold itself.
Currently, the FOREX rate for Rubli to Dollari is around 100:1
BUT… with 5,000 Rubli now equivalent to a gram of Gold, and oil being priced directly into Gold, we will see a MASSIVE price disturbance in the FOREX markets, in terms of how much Gold a Dollar can still buy.
Foreign countries holding our dollar debt notes as a reserve will see an immediate and much less use for them and want to start downloading them in favor of something more stable; something that holds its value.
Basically, any currency anchored in gold will fit into the account. which means countries like that – like Japan – will start unloading their dollar debt as soon as possible – are not going to go down with the ship! They’ll move to more stable values like… The Ruble.
This will have a DE-flationistic effect on the Rublo, making it more precious with time.
This also means that Putin can re-find the ruble whenever he wants, at 500, or 50, or 10. He just keeps getting more precious to him.
The immediate result is that all those foreign countries dumping their dollar reserves will make all those excess dollars start going home, triggering a worse hyper-inflation than we already have in the USA.
Buy gold from us. We ship in 3 days!
Note: We do not condone Russia’s war in Ukraine!
