China On A Gold Buying Binge Despite Massive Debt For Obvious Reasons

Similar to that of other developed nations, China’s debt has also reached “bubbly” proportions. But they know that during the next crisis those nations with a large gold backing will not only survive, but will be prosperous as well! China will most certainly increase its gold reserves even further. Imagine if only a portion of their $1.22 trillion US treasury holdings are shifted to gold. BOOM…

China’s Monetary Ascension Is Paved with Gold

When the Chinese yuan becomes an SDR currency, that could be the inflection point for a new multi-polar currency regime that sees the US dollar decline in stature. Could gold also begin to emerge as a leading currency in world trade? Over time, it certainly could. But the more immediate implications for gold’s monetary role center on its increasing accumulation by central banks such as China’s.

The Significance of the Massive Change in the Gold Market

The significance of the change in the gold market can be better seen by the average annual increase in total gold holdings during the 2009-2012 period which was 15 Moz compared to 25 Moz for the first half of 2016. If demand for gold continues as strong in the second part of the year, we could see upwards of 50 Moz move into these total gold holdings versus 45 Moz for the 2009-2012 period.

Gold Price Spike Triggers Massive Surge In Gold Investment Demand

The spike in the gold price during the holiday weekend triggered a record ONE-DAY surge in mainstream investor gold demand. How much gold flooded into Gold ETF’s and Funds on July 5th? Mainstream investors piled into gold on Tuesday, July 5th, thus pushing the ONE-DAY flow into Gold ETF’s to a record 1.4 million oz. The one-day previous record was about 1.25 Moz.

Gold Mania Will Fuel Gold Prices Beyond Anything Logical

Gold will suddenly be up by $100 one day, then by $200 the next day. At first the pundits will be claiming that it’s an anomaly, but as rises continue, a point will be reached when people say, “This seems to be a trend. Better buy some gold.” But once the trend is underway, the price then will have no bearing on whether gold is available. We shall see a gold price rise for the record books.

Bull Market in Gold Driven by Massive Gold Investment Buying

After shunning prudent portfolio diversification with gold for years, investors are finally starting to reestablish those essential positions. And since their collective gold holdings were so incredibly low heading into 2016, reflecting hyper-bearish sentiment, the gold investment buying has only begun. It will likely take years to complete, driving gold’s new bull higher on balance the entire time.

Thanks to Overvalued US Dollar, Gold Prices Have No Upper Limit

Thanks to an overvalued US dollar, gold prices may have nowhere to go but up. The biggest gold producers in the world have seen their share prices double this year. Not only are gold prices soaring, but producers are cutting costs and slimming down debt as they pave the way for gold to return to the top of the favored commodities list. This safe haven is back & the recovery is clear.

The Fed is Data Dependant - Gold Price is Dollar Dependant

Rising gold holdings have been the one bright spot for the gold price that has held steady even in the face of weakness on the gold chart. The big question the market is going to be asking is can the Fed indeed hike rates at a pace that would send the US Dollar higher with all the negative side effects from that. Much depends on what the Forex markets do with the US Dollar.

Gold is a Permanent Menace to Government's Power over Fiat Money

Existence of gold in the economy is a constant reminder of the poor quality of government paper & it always poses a threat to replace the paper as the country’s money. Despite government backing of its prestige & its legal tender laws to fiat paper, gold coins in the hands of the public will always be a permanent reproach & menace to government’s power over money.

Canada Sells Nearly Half Of All Its Gold Reserves

The latest data shows the total Canadian gold reserves have now dropped to 0.62 tonnes. The amount of gold the Canadian government holds has therefore been falling steadily since the mid-1960s, when over 1,000 tonnes were kept tucked away. Half of those reserves were sold by 1985, then through the 1990s & by last year, Canada’s gold reserves were down to just three tonnes.

Silver Is More Important Than Anything Else In The World

If I am correct about the silver for delivery coming from the most likely of all places, China, then I believe this will be looked back on by historians as “the Chinese silver fox in the West’s golden hen house! Am I correct? I don’t know but we will soon see as the global paper financial edifice is quaking on its own. The silver can ONLY be coming from where it exists…Chinese legacy silver!

Radical Underinvestment in Gold Today is Super-Bullish

American investors are going to soon plow tens of billions of dollars back into gold in an attempt to regain some modicum of prudent portfolio diversification. While these capital flows will be small compared to the stock markets, they are massive relative to gold investment demand. All that buying is going to catapult gold prices far higher.

Peak Debt & The Need For A Reliable Store of Value: GOLD

Most investors seem unconcerned about the unsustainable levels of global debt and the inflationary potential of the trillions of dollars created by the major central banks especially the U.S Federal Reserve. I expect to see gold and silver demand increase dramatically in the coming years as more prudent investors see the truth and look for a reliable store of value.

China Bought Gold With Proceeds From Record Sale Of US Treasurys

In a month in which China sold a record $83 billion in Treasurys, it had no qualms about rotating the sale proceeds into gold. Or at least that’s what it was eager to telegraph with its data. However, even as China is buying gold, it is still doing so at half the pace of neighbour Russia. Between China and Russia, some 47 tons of gold were purchased in the open market in past month.

Gold Soars After Chinese Currency Devaluation

Over one billion Chinese will soon be scrambling into gold to preserve their purchasing power after the PBOC’s dramatic devaluation announcement. Any day now the PBOC will update its revised foreign reserve and gold holdings. And so the next big leg up in gold will take place when it is revealed that the PBOC had only exposed a portion of its “new” total gold inventory.

Why You Shouldn’t Panic About Your Gold Investments

There’s now a full blown campaign of hostility directed against bullion. Yet this shouldn’t tempt you to give up on gold just yet. It’s important to remember that a gold investment isn’t just an investment in the strictest sense. It’s a store of value that retains its worth when other assets collapse. Rather than thinking of gold as an investment then, think of it as a way to secure your wealth.

Large Withdrawal From JPMorgan’s Gold Inventories In A Day

JP Morgan lost nearly 15% of its total gold inventories in one day. If you look at the COMEX Gold Inventory table closely, you will notice that the total Registered Gold inventories are a lousy 351,519 oz. This is less than peanuts. Two withdrawals like JP Morgan experienced on Thursday, would totally wipe out the Bankers Registered gold inventories.

Why Most Pundits are Dead Wrong about China’s Gold

Gold is still the safest asset, and every investor should have some in their portfolio. The price of gold will go significantly higher in the years ahead. But contrary to what you hear from the pundits and read in the blogs, gold won’t go higher because China is confronting the US or launching a gold-backed currency.

Did China Reveal a Fraction of its Gold Holdings? - The Case Of China’s Missing Gold

Having large gold reserves are not required to be in the SDR. China had to wait until its stock market was crashing to present the “systemic stability” bazooka: Gold. Because in revealing a surge in its gold holdings, the PBOC is hoping to finally provide that final missing link that will boost investor sentiment, and get people buying stocks all over again.

China’s Gold Hoard Will Slay the Mighty Dollar — Here’s Why

China is soon going to want to disclose its gold holdings in an effort to have the yuan join the IMF’s currency basket – the SDR, currently having only the dollar, euro, yen & British pound. If China’s gold reserve is revealed this year and the size of the addition surprises to the upside, it is going to be a major shot across the bow of the U.S. dollar.
