LONDON -- Signs of de-dollarisation are unfolding in the global economy, strategists at the biggest U.S. bank JPMorgan said today, although the currency should maintain its long-held dominance for the foreseeable future.
The impact of steep U.S. interest rate rises and the use of sanctions that have frozen the likes of Russia out of the global banking system are driving the so-called BRICs nations -- Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa -- to challenge the dollar's hegemony.

Bullion Star Opens in the U.S., Selling and Vaulting Gold and Silver
Bullion Star is now open in the United States, offering gold and silver bullion at extremely competitive prices with free delivery. Bullion Star also offers customers a year of free vault storage along with free delivery as well as storage in its secure precious metals vault in Dallas, Texas.
Storing precious metals is challenging. Homeowner's insurance seldom covers precious metals, and safe deposit boxes offered by banks are neither insured nor covered by the government deposit insurance. Bullion Star's vault is an independently run, Class III UL-rated vault with uncompromising surveillance and round-the-clock security.
With Bullion Star you can transact and store your metals securely and confidentially. Your bullion is fully insured against all risks at full replacement value. Bullion Star uses five audit methods to verify the existence and correctness of your stored bullion.
