Chinese Gold Demand with Koos Jansen


On Thursday, Vaulters had a chance to interact with Chinese Gold Demand expert, Koos Jansen. The information shared by Koos was so interesting and informative that I felt it needed wider distribution.

In this 40-minute webinar, Koos discusses:

  • The methodology of calculating total Chinese demand
  • How China is acquiring and importing so much of the world's gold
  • What the ultimate goals and endgame of The Chinese might be

If you're not familiar with Koos' work, you should be. His website can be found here:

Two recent articles that you should definitely read are here: and here:

Again, every Thursday, subscribers participate on what we call "Access2Access". These programs are hosted on the GoToWebinar format so that the listeners have the opportunity to pose the questions. Recent guests have included G. Edward Griffin, Alasdair Macleod and Jim Willie. It's all just a part of what Vaulters receive for their $10/month Vault subscription fee.

A few questions for Koos on

A few questions for Koos on the next go around, Does he think that Germany may be buying gold covertly? Does he think the US suspects this? Granted, this does not fall into his area of expertise, but he may have an opinion or perspective on these questions. Great Podcast, Thank You

I think this is what is going

I think this is what is going to happen very soon. The ultimate bailout- recapitalization of th FED by USG. But this time with state assets not more debt. Clever people predicted it long time ago-2011:

Quote: But the Fed's newfangled policy steps and the potential for credit losses raises, for some experts, the prospect that the Treasury may actually be forced to "recapitalize" the Fed -- economist-speak for what others might call a bail-out.

That would be a strange role reversal given the Fed's efforts to ease monetary policy by buying the Treasury's debt, and it could raise a political firestorm from lawmakers who believed all along the Fed was putting taxpayer money at risk.

After this, politics will have new dimension and Rand Paul type people stock may surge ...which does not bode well for his life expectancy.

Similar thing was done in England in 18th or even end of 17th century as well, though not with real assets I think.. I have to look into Bullion report again.

There might be other CBs in history of some countries that had sucked in state assets from state in exchange for state debt? .

Just click to his site. I'd suggest you email him directly with your questions. He's a very nice guy and I'm certain he'll get right back to you.

I received a valentines card in my late teens in England.

The return address was:

Miss Mary Keeps

The Cackwell Inn

Tillet Herts.

To bad, I never could figure out who sent it.

Looking forward to sitting down with a nice cup of coffee and listening to this TF! Koos is a wealth of information on the Chinese gold market.
Our pal Ned was kind enough join us on M&M this week for any Turdites interested.
We need to get you back on the show Turd, its been awhile!

Long & Wrong? Ned Naylor-Leyland on The Last Little Trickle of the Gold Repatriation Game

Quilter Cheviot fund manager & precious metals expert Ned Naylor-Leyland joins The Doc & Eric Dubin on this week’s SD Weekly Metals & Markets for an in-depth discussion on gold & silver.
Ned discusses the German investigation into precious metals market manipulation- and why unlike the CFTC, the German’s have the motivation to conduct a real investigation.
We cover the Bundesbank’s attempts to repatriate its gold reserves: why NNL is “da*n sure” the Germans knew their gold was gone, and that after only receiving 37 tons in year 1, Ned almost wonders whether the Germans will get ANY more, and states that we are likely seeing the last little trickle of the repatriation game kicked off by the Venezuelans.
Naylor-Leyland believes it is difficult to say the price of gold has really fallen when you see such a complete divergence between demand for the underlying and the price on the screen and that redemption for precious metals investors may not be far off:
We’ve all been long and wrong for awhile, but with the kind of premiums in India- the same kinds of premiums that broke the London Gold Pool last time around- the same 20% ish arbitrage opportunities. The physical is swirling around madly, and I see a change taking place very soon.

? for admin ...

I've been having issues with pages loading for the last 3 or 4 days. A new page takes about 20 seconds to load, rather than the usual 1/10 of a second. Other issue is that when I click on a hat tip, the page reloads and takes me back to the top. Any one else seeing these issues? I've cleared out cookies, cleaned everything I can clean, rebooted multiple times. Nothing improves the situation. Any ideas? Anyone? Bueller? Anyone?
