日元再度逼近100大关 日本央行的“噩梦情景”开始降临 - 对于想着法宽松的日本央行来说，今年一直在被市场“打脸”。年初引入负利率，结果日元不跌反涨，9月推出一个新玩意儿——收益率曲线控制的新型QQE，结果十年期国债收益率短暂上扬后立马回到负值区间。 华尔街见闻曾经介绍过这一新工具，日本央行在全新的货币政策框架中引入了收益率曲线目标，希望将10年期国债收益率保持在0...
China gold frenzy
I went to the Caibai Gold and jewelry market on Sunday. The first level of gold products was wall to wall people, with lines snaked around the cashier's counter. The employees behind the gold counters had almost no time to speak with customers because they were processing sales non-stop. In these pictures there are some prices for gold: as of Sunday, January 15, gold was 337 renminbi per gram for investment. Many of the gold products, which included gold knives, abacuses and combs to name a few, sold for 390 to 410 renminbi per gram and up. On the third floor, there were investment bars for sale at small premiums above spot. Silver was selling for 6.3 renminbi per gram. Also, several items are measured in taels and candareens. A candareen (分）is 1/100 of a tael, a mace（钱）is 1/10. I did not ask which tael they were using, as Hong Kong measures a tael as 37.43 grams or 1.2 troy ounces. The silver coins say: 7 mace 2 candareens, which is the weight for 1 silver Chinese yuan.
