"Uncivilized" China Quietly Building Gold Reserves As Gold Imports From HK Soar By 587% In First Quarter

Tyler Durden's picture




 

A month ago we ended up with the hilarious situation where the US was actively considering releasing petroleum from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve even as China was demonstratively and concurrently adding to its strategic inventory. Now, as the developed world is seeing day after day of gold hammering on amusing flights of fancy that central banks won't be forced to engage in more and ever bigger rounds of monetary dilution, and where the seller apparently has no regard for getting a "good" price, but merely seeks to crash the bid stack slams various PM prices, we see the same inversion with gold. Because as Bloomberg reports, "Mainland China's gold imports from Hong Kong surged more than sixfold in the first quarter, to 156 metric tons, adding to signs that the country may displace India as the world's largest consumer of the precious metal on an annual basis." And the punchline: "The purchases through Hong Kong may signal that the mainland is accumulating reserves, London-based brokerage Sharps Pixley Ltd. said in February. The nation last made its reserves known more than two years ago, stating them at 1,054 tons." Yep ladies and gents: the PBOC is very grateful that it can add hundreds of tons of gold to its reserve holdings in a stealthy operation which it will announce only after its conclusion, at which point, like true 13F chasing lemmings, retail will send gold soaring. But in the meantime, dear hedge funds worried about your margin calls and 1 month performance reports, please proceed calmly along with the lemming herd, and keep pushing gold lower and cheaper for our new Chinese overlords, and for everyone else who, without P&L timing constraints, takes delight in such brief arbitrage opportunities.

From Bloomberg:

Imports from Hong Kong were 135,529 kilograms (135.53 metric tons) between January and March, from 19,729 kilograms in the year-earlier period, according to data from the Census and Statistics Department of the Hong Kong government. Shipments in March rose 59 percent from February, yesterday's data showed.

 

Demand has climbed in the world's second-largest economy as rising incomes and curbs on property speculation boosted purchases. China may become the biggest user annually this year, according to a forecast from the producer-funded World Gold Council. Last year, total Indian demand including for jewelry and investment was 933.4 tons to China's 769.8 tons.

 

"We're looking at another solid year for Chinese demand based on these early numbers," said Nick Trevethan, senior commodities strategist at Australia & New Zealand Banking Group Ltd. "While it's largely related to price, negative real interest rates should keep demand strong."

 

Gold has lost 15 percent from its record $1,921.15 an ounce in September as the European debt crisis, combined with reduced expectations for further monetary easing by the Federal Reserve, boosted the dollar. Spot gold traded at $1,637.32 an ounce at 9:41 a.m. in Singapore, 4.7 percent higher this year

The geopolitical implications are obvious:

The prospect of China becoming the largest bullion user reflects the country's economic ascendance. Per capita gross domestic product has more than doubled since 2000, according to World Bank data. The country is already the world's top consumer of copper and biggest producer of steel.

 

Gold shipments to the mainland climbed for a third month in March to 62,913 kilograms, the Hong Kong data showed. That compares with 39,668 kilograms in February and 9,166 kilograms in March 2011. China doesn't publish gold-trade data. Last year, imports from Hong Kong more than tripled to 431,226 kilograms.

 

The purchases through Hong Kong may signal that the mainland is accumulating reserves, London-based brokerage Sharps Pixley Ltd. said in February. The nation last made its reserves known more than two years ago, stating them at 1,054 tons.

Finally, we can only hope that all those who clamor for an RRR, or even interest rate, cut are wrong, as the paradigm shift in China as one of pursuing more inflation will light yet another major fire under gold, which would make purchases on the cheap problematic. In fact, the status quo, in which a very "uncivilized" China is buying as everyone else is selling, is ideal for all intents and purposes.

I continue to be the only person on all of ZH who is way upside down on his gold purchases. 

I told myself a while back I'd buy if it gets below $1600, so I"m watching closely.  but I'm still unnerved by how closely Gold has tracked the equity markets since Fall 2011.

I'll still probably buy again because my dollars are just sitting in a credit union earning 0.8%, but I wish that gold wasn't acting like another plaything of the markets.

You're being fooled by the banksters, who are manipulating gold specifically to make it look "like everything else".  Buy on a dollar-cost-averaging basis and forget about the published "price."  It is about accumulating, not timing.  I've been buying for some time and my weighted-average cost is around $900/oz, which includes some recent buys in the $1,600s and $1,700s.

lather, rinse, repeat quote: “I think gold is a great thing to sew onto your garments if you’re a Jewish family in Vienna in 1939, but civilized people don’t buy gold, they invest in productive businesses.”

-object lesson in gold being the ultimate portable store of wealth. harder to confiscate than department stores, stock certificates, property, works of art, etc.

-based on 'what happened' between 1939-1945 that the jews were the civilized ones fleeing the barbarians.

For a ham sandwich, you pay with 3-nines silver granulate, the kind that silversmiths buy to melt and craft. Small 1 gram droplet for you, thanks, keep the change.

Please note: a pound is not a common unit of gold. usually it is measured in troy ounces. Besides, I think 'junk' silver is the more appropriate unit for purchasing a ham sandwich. You wouldn't try to buy a ham sandwich with a $20,000 bank draft either, would you?

Valuation wise todays miners are at or below the lows of 2008 right now. Plenty of miners that are trading pretty close to cash in the bank with little or no premium given for proven reserves or infrastructure. Assuming the whole financial system doesn't collapse and the DTCC doesn't get wiped out by a mysterious virus, this is an incredible buying opportunity. This big down wave will probably be "it" before we get another 12 month bull run. Of course, I have no idea what is coming so it is still a gamble but buying them at these "cash in the bank" levels is pretty fucking low risk. I'm hoping this down move lasts another $100!

Your post makes little sense.

First: of course people are selling gold at these prices.  Just go to Tulving.com.

Second, if nobody is selling gold or silver, where are you buying it on sale?

Like it or not, the physical price is linked to the paper price of gold and silver... at least for now. 

Sure, at some point the link will probably collapse, but that time is not yet.  when will it happen?  I have no idea.  People have been predicting Comex failure for 2-3 years on ZH...

It is working as an old Swiss clock: between 8 and 9AM, there is a major Gold price drop on daily bases.

I do not think the FED is trying to contain gold prices masking inflation. Real common people do not watch gold prices or use gold prices as an economical barometer. Gasl and food are the major inflation barometer for the overwhelming majority. Therefore, taking also into account that mass media is under control of the world Zionist banking mafia, there is no need to suppress gold prices for inflation hiding purposes.

The only other reason they might do it is that the Central Banks are buying gold.

PS

I will appreciate to hear other thoughts.

You are confusing "inflation purpose" with debasement and confidence.

If people see and start to understand what real money is again they will have more confidence in it and less in the fiat cabal's rigged casino.  Debasement is not just where most of the ZH trolls live, it is also the continuous tool that banksters use to "repay" their debt at a lower cost, which is foisted upon the general populace unbeknownst to them (most of them anyway).

That applies not just to individuals but to countries and institutions as well.

Also if the paper markets are leveraged 100:1 contracts to physical gold do you think the short sellers want the price to go up or be high if/when they have to find the physical for delivery?

So explain to me what the Chinese will sell to us in exchange for gold when we have no gold. The Chinese have nothing we need.

China is selling dollars to buy gold and selling gold to buy oil. Therefor, China is buying oil with dollars. That is all that is going on here.

If you are holding gold, you are holding the fool's bag; I'm not against gold but the traders who ran it up fast have already taken what would have been ten years worth of increases, if not for the quick hype due to the internet. It may be that the internet creates severe spikes, and those spikes have their down side. China...if the numbers are correct...is down fifty percent in shipping out goods. Consider that. Fifty percent. Gold goes first when the bill comes due to pay what needs to be paid. It looks like it's well on its way down and if you were to read old posts of mine from almost six months ago, I said that gold was going down then. We are reverting to the mean and the mean is 1990 before the stock market run-up and before the housing boom. Before we all had 100 pair of shoes:) The conservative souls will be fine; the profligate and those in unions and on welfare will hurt (as they should:) Unions who stole from the taxpayers by self-awarding are about to find themselves gutted; welfarians will be seeing the downside of being lazy and stupid; the profligate....ah yes, they will have the very hardest time...
