Point Out The "Slump" In Chinese Gold Imports On This Chart

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Lately Bloomberg's reporting group (now without access to client tracking) has been hitting it out of the park when it comes to cognitive schizophrenia-inducing news article headlines.

Last Friday it was the market somehow going up and down at the same time.

Now, Bloomberg has shifted its deductive skills over to analyzing the gold market with the following article headline: "China’s Gold Imports From Hong Kong Slump on Quota Backlog" in which Bloomberg says: "Mainland buyers purchased 126,135 kilograms, including scrap, compared with 223,519 kilograms in March, according to Hong Kong government data yesterday. Net imports, after deducting flows from China into Hong Kong, were 75,891 kilograms, from 130,038 kilograms a month earlier, according to Bloomberg calculations." Now perhaps what would have made this "slump" more amusing is if BBG had also shown it in context. Which we are happy to do. Because the 126.1 tons of gold imports in April, or the month of the "great gold crash", was only the second highest ever, and just shy of the all time record high of 223.5 tons imported in March.

And the "slump" when observed year over year. Hmmm:

Bloomberg was right about one thing however:

Some qualified banks used up their gold import quota in the first three months and weren’t able to get the paperwork done fast enough to bring in bullion in April,” said Tian Rui, vice president of the precious metals division at INTL FCStone Trading Co. “We might see higher imports in May because demand surged after the rout.”

In other words, look for the unslump in May when a surge in even more buying sends gross imports from Hong Kong to what may be new all time highs.

In the meantime, YTD imports of 500 tons are more than double the 240 tons imported over the same period last year: the same amount as held by the ECB.

China has now imported 1,333 tons of gold since January 2012, or 30% more than its official gold holdings, and is on a run rate to import 1500 tons in 2013 alone.

At least someone is taking advantage of all that levered ETF paper gold selling...

The chart above is just part of the story.  Hong Kong is one only source for China to import gold.

As of May 31, Shanghai Gold Exchange "Deliveries from Vault" for 2013 stood at 820 tonnes despite gold delivery halt from April 20 to ~ May 25.

While Bloomberg is busy saying that 126 tonnes is next to nothing, they forgot to mention that the COMEX currently has a grand total of 52 tonnes registered, or enough to supply less than two weeks of China's suddenly "dampened" desire for the yellow metal.

China is currently trading all those rapidly inflating dollars for real wealth.  They also are quite adept at creating wealth through manufacturing and agriculture.  Back home, our primary means of wealth creation are arms manufacture and ethanol.  Our beloved tax system is going to have fewer to tax, the whole while the IRS smiles and reminds us "The Bill of Rights is very fragile, very human".  Criminal bankers and a rogue government do as they will without fear of punishment (just ask Corzine and Holder).  The middle class, the family unit and morality are being destroyed while a gay agenda is pushed even onto the Boy Scouts.  If that doesn't put the writing on the wall, I don't know what will...

All of which points out the foolishness of gold, not only on an individual scale, but an international one.

Gold, what is it good for? (Absolutely nothin' say it again, huh!) How many chip connnectors can one coat with the stuff?

It's only good for trade. It's very worthlessness (in practical terms) is precisely what makes gold a good medium of exchange.

If anything, worthless gold is a backstop for even more worthless meduims of exchange, like paper or electrons.

Bankers of a certain ethnic background everywhere have discovered that an even beter backstop for worthless mediums of exchange is the PROMISE of gold, and a promise must the the most worthless medium of exchange possible, hence the COMEX debacle, etc.

Since exchange is all that gold is good for, hence, it must (eventually) be exchanged. The Chinese gold-buying spree should be chalked up in economic terms as savings.

If you want the gold for yourself, find out what the Chinese want, but don't have, and sell it to them for gold.

Oil

Clean, potable water

Fresh air

Open space

White women (not too spoiled)

Drugs (tried and true- why wouldn't the Chinese want meth, cocaine, killer Humbolt or heroin? Americans want all these things)

So, leaving the existential and practical worthlessness of gold behind, stop being whiny little victims (the Chinese stole all the gold!!!Waaahhhh") and put your capitalistic actions where your mouth is, and get it back from them!

And all of this gives me more belief in what I realized a few years ago.

We started devaluing our dollar in 2000 to bring China to the global central bank table. (with their yuan pegged below our dollar they would have hit the dust first.)

Part of the buy-in is allowing China and others to buy gold at a lower price to prep for the 3 currency world that the CFR had opined in 2006. (A Pan Asian, Pan American and Pan European).

China will be the lynch pin of the Pan Asian currency. We (U.S.) will remain the lynch pin of the Pan American and we already have the Euro (which as Jim Sinclair pointed out...."WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO FAIL"

The Juan is pegged to the US Dollar.

 

When the Juan goes open market, it is bound to rocket upward.

 

Owning more gold - that should help ease the appreciation of the Juan - LMAO.

I have noticed that B'berg is slanted in all of its "reporting"...I would trust them as much as CNN or any report from one of our Federal agencies.

 

This gold report is just another example of their bias.

 

But, here's the real question: Do they actually think that their headline writing style is clever?
