Russia increases gold reserves. As media report, so the Kremlin hopes to be protected from "dictatorship of dollar" in the conditions of sanctions. Earlier Russia has also reduced investments in a national debt of the USA. Whether it is favorable to invest in gold or it is a compulsory measure? Photo: Alexander of Ryumin/TASS Russia has overtaken China and now has gold reserves, the fifth in size, in the world. In the spring of this year Russia has also reduced investments in a national debt of the USA, having got rid of the most part of the American treasury bonds belonging to her. As writes Die Welt, thus the Kremlin hopes to be protected from "dictatorship of dollar" in the conditions of sanctions. Whether it is favorable to invest in gold or it is a compulsory measure? Sergey Suverov the chief of the analytical department UK "Saving BKS" "I think that refusal of treasury bonds of the USA are in many respects a compulsory measure because we see that the US dollar becomes stronger against other currencies recently, and, probably, it is the only currency in the world which shows rather steady dynamics. Besides, unlike gold, treasury bonds of the USA bring interest income, and gold doesn't bring such interest income therefore I think that it is a compulsory measure. But, on the other hand, so far a gold share in gold and foreign exchange reserves of Russia approximately at the level of 17%. She is less, than a similar indicator of the central banks of the European countries at which is in gold from 40% to 60% of reserves. Therefore, probably, from the point of view of diversification of reserves it makes sense, and means of diversification doesn't have any real, reasonable alternative to gold as reserves. But, on the other hand, it is in many respects a compulsory measure". It is possible to invest in gold, but will pay off in it it is problematic, the adviser for macroeconomic of the CEO of the Opening Broker company Sergey Hestanov:sergey Hestanov the adviser for macroeconomic of the CEO of the Otkrytiye-broker company "Says process of transition in itself to gold as a peculiar currency is rather difficult and a lot of time therefore, most likely, so far it is not so much about his real use, how many about demonstration of such opportunity will demand. And at all not the fact that this demonstration will reach so exotic real introduction, though a way of calculations, popular in the past". The Central Bank declared on August 23 that it won't buy currency for the Ministry of Finance until the end of September. Right after the statement of the regulator the Russian currency has become stronger to dollar and euro, having receded from positions in 69 rubles for dollar and nearly 80 rubles for euro.
