When it comes to measuring either the increase in Chinese gold reserves or the gold imports to China we must say that the information provided by the Chinese is only what they want us to know. With last month’s announcement of a 5 tonne increase in official gold reserves we read into it that they want all to know they are continuing to increase their reserves but not at a visibly aggressive rate. There are several ways they can increase their reserves but not take them onto their books, ‘officially’.
We remind readers that they “own gold through their people”. That includes all gold currently inside their borders but primarily directly through state controlled institutions.

Yesterday did not see any purchases of gold into the gold ETFs. As a result the gold price simply held at higher levels. All was quiet on the currency fronts leaving both silver and gold to mark time today. Physical demand of good sizes drives the gold price with dealers translating gold prices in line with exchange rate movements.
