IndiaVisionExclusive - China is busy recasting all of their gold reserves into smaller one kilo bars in order to issue a new ‘gold backed’ global currency. This is no doubt the reason for the recent trade agreements with Russia, Japan, Chile, Brazil, India, and Iran. Expect to see more nations sign new trade agreements with China in the near future.
GATA now estimates that 80% of the gold (40.000 metric tons) supposedly stored in the vaults/allocated accounts of the bullion brokerages is long gone. Clients retrieving their allocated gold have had much trouble in doing so, and when they do manage to take possession, their gold does not bear the registered serial numbers they are supposed to. One can only wonder how much of the allocated gold is now 1 kilo bars. Additionally we now read that China is interested in purchasing Gold mines.
China is well along an ambitious plan to recast large gold bars into smaller 1-kg bars on a massive scale. A major event is brewing that will disrupt global trade and assuredly the global banking system. The big gold recast project points to the Chinese preparing for a new system of trade settlement. In the process they must be constructing a foundation for a possible new monetary system based in gold that supports the trade payments. Initally used for trade, it will later be used in banking.
The USTBond will be shucked aside. Regard the Chinese project as preliminary to a collapse in the debt-based USDollar system. The Chinese are removing thousands of metric tons of gold bars from London, New York, and Switzerland. They are recasting the bars, no longer to bear weights in ounces, but rather kilograms. The larger Good Delivery bars are being reduced into 1-kg bars and stored in China. It is not clear whether the recast project is being done entirely in China, as some indication has come that Swiss foundries might be involved, since they have so much experience and capacity.
The story of recasting in London is confirmed by my best source. It seems patently clear that the Chinese are preparing for a new system for trade settlement system, to coincide with a new banking reserve system. They might make a sizeable portion of the new 1-kg bars available for retail investors and wealthy individuals in China.
