Debt crisis in USA has driven gold to reach 1600 US$/Troy Ounce (22,800 Baht/Baht of gold) with the expected price at the end of 2011 to reach 1750 - 1800 US$/Troy Ounce (23,300 Baht/Baht of gold).
For the world market, the gold price is up by 13% from 1419 US$/Troy Ounce to 1593 US$/Troy Ounce while gold price in Thai makret is up by 12% from 20,150 Baht/Baht of gold to 22,700 Baht/Baht of gold - due to the apprciation of Baht after selling the gold to get the cash in Baht
If Baht has been appriciated by 10 cent, the gold price will be reduced by 14 Baht - expecteing Baht to be appriciated from 1US$ = 29.80 Baht to 1US$ = 29.50 Baht
Burmese workers in Mae Sod and Myowadee side cannot afford to spend to buy Gold duye to hte hike of gold

Old adage - saving and you'll be okay when you are on retirement:
E.g. If you are 25 year old and have a salary of 10000 US Dollars (or Euro) a month, your savings (in any forms) should be:
10000 * 25 * 12/10 = 300000 US Dollars (or Euro)
If your savings are not at this level, you better save more NOW!

DPA is going to reduce the deposit protection to 50 million Baht tomorrow and to 1 million Baht next year - it is about time to head into the investment -

Golden Madness Begins
Golden Madness Begins: Thailanders and Burmese people start hoarding gold form the gold shop in Maesod due to the rumour of gold at 30000 Baht per baht of gold - (10.2 Million Riel/Tael). Even gold at the amount of 1 Feung (1/2 Salueng = 1/8 Baht -> 1.905 gram -> 1/20 Tael) is considered as the choice for those Burmese workers who manage to have a bank account.
Furthermore, the demands for gold to pay a respect to mothers also driving gold price up and away!
Price og gold still fluctuate - changed 14 times today!
Isan people in Mahasarakham still hoarding gold despite fo the price at 25000 Baht a baht

The DPA's reduction of Deposit Protection insurance have comelled Bankers to change their relationship with the Big Customers with at least 1 Million Baht deposit (1.5% but holding 70% of Deposit Money - about 900000-1 Million Account with the deposit of 4.62 trillion Baht) and Super Big customer who hve deposit of at least 50 million Baht (0.01% but holding 20% of Deposit money at 1.34 Trillion Baht) by offering the investment deals to keep deposit money in the banks - and prevent the major Bank runs
1. breaking their big accounts into smallers ones,
2. Bills of Exchange
3. Mutual funds
4. Short term deposits with higher interest rates
5. Trying to encourage the small customer to make a deposit
Gold headign toward 26000 Baht per Baht of gold ($1,814 Per Troy Ounce)
K-Asset Promoting K-Gold Mutual Funds as the solution for those who want to hold gold as theri assets but nt enough capital to deal with - as the gold expect to rise until the end of 2011 - to bebeween 1,800-2,000 YUS Dolalrs per Troy Ounce
Note: better wait until US Governemtn and Japan startign to sell gold out to sablize Dolalrs and Yen and gold will go down ...
Many Thailanders moving their deposit to Single Premium Life Insurant or all other types of Insurance - still have a lots of rooms to grow of Life Insurance in Thailand - double digit growth until at least 2014 - There are 421 billion Baht of life insurance money in 2010 and they expect 739 billion Baht of life insurance money in 2014
There are 24 Life Insurance Companies - but AIA (thailand) and Thai Life holdign the lion share of 53% while Ayutthaya Alliance CP holding 6.1%

It is abotu tiem for Chinese Yuan and Indian Rupee to bailout US Diollars and Euro
Gold is now 27,000 Baht per baht of gold and the demands have reach the point that gold shops have to issue the certificate to allow the customers to waite to get the gold next week.
Now, gold has ready reached 1900 US$ per troy ounze with the expected price to reach 2000 US$ per troy ounce (30000 Baht pere Baht of gold) at the end of this year.
This is due to the fact that both US and Euro zone still suffer from economci ailments and it will take much longer time to get full recovery
Beware when Burmese sellign gold for you - hte purity of their gold is 22 Karat (91.67%) - less than the purity of Thai gold in the market
(96.5%) ... Gold with less than 90% purity woudl be rejected by Thai gold shop ... gold with purity of 90-96% woudl be accepted with discount according to purity. The gold must be burnt to shwo the flame colors for purity testing.
After DPA limit of deposit protection, the short term saving accounts with high interest rates alogn with SIngle Premium Life Insurance policies have been heavily promoted
