A great new piece out from Koos Jansen in time for the weekend. In the last couple of months Sprott has gained a lot of publicity for questioning the World Gold Council’s data on gold imports. But the man who has really been digging, in terms of China’s numbers, is Koos. He has some amazing numbers to report, that really outshine anything from the WGC.

As we mentioned this morning, there has been much chatter on the issue of gold market manipulation in recent weeks. This morning we reported that the German regulator is looking into Deutsche Bank’s role in the gold price fix. This afternoon the news is that the Swiss regulator is looking into opening the gold market.

We have written a lot in the past on how gold will react in inflationary and deflationary environments. We have reported how gold hasn’t always been a great hedge against inflation. Below is a link to an interesting debate on this very matter.
