KingWorldNews conducted an interview with “LondonTrader” about the demand for gold in London which recently has gotten intensive.

The demand for euro gold here in London is so intense it’s shocking to some of the players.  This is what has left some market participants in the US wondering why the price of gold has risen along with the dollar.  It’s because demand in the eurozone is unimaginably strong.  The euro physical gold demand is off the charts and it is creating shortages for metal, in size, here in London.

The physical gold market is actually being drained by euro gold buyers.  People are converting their euros to gold and there is only a finite amount of physical gold available.  Again, that’s why you are seeing the dollar and gold rallying together.

In the case of silver, because of many short positions (to manipulate the price downwards) there has been much silver borrowed from SLV to cover these.

“We’ve still got a very, very compressed spring because the shorts are still trying to defend their positions, their naked short positions in both the gold and silver markets.  As an example, in the silver market, you saw that type of activity in the silver ETF (SLV).  Shorts borrowed another 3 million ounces to cover immediate delivery concerns.  There are 25 million ounces now borrowed from SLV.  It is getting worse and worse for them.”

“They are naked short on the COMEX and to meet immediate delivery demand they are having to borrow it from the SLV.  It is still unwinding and it’s still got a long way to go.

Silver is in backwardation (future price is high than spot price, implying investors demand for physical delivery is high)

There are huge premiums for size (large tonnage orders) in silver and you are going to wait 3, 4 or 5 weeks for delivery.  There is constant backwardation into the March futures contract.  For the most part, the bid on silver spot has been higher than the ask on March futures.

The most interesting thing that came out of the interview it that none of the international trading funds trust the Comex after MF Global fallout.

“You now have international funds, whose compliance departments are saying to them, ‘You can no longer trade on the Comex because the CME did not back client accounts.’  There are a tremendous number of international funds and hedge funds that can no longer trade on the COMEX as of the first of this year because of compliance reasons and no one is talking about this.  This is huge news.

Finally, these is still a massive demand from the Chineese people and Government as they push to be the worlds reserve currency.

The Chinese are long-term thinkers and they really don’t care whether they are paying $1,600 or $1,700 for gold.  What they do is get the best price they can.  When the new floor eventually becomes $1,700, they will buy everything available at that price.  When it becomes $1,800 they will buy at that price.  They are just looking to accumulate gold and they are never sellers, never.

There are two things here.  Yes, China wants a cheap gold price and they’ve been enjoying the fact the gold market was taken down.  They have recently taken another roughly 150 tons away from the Western central banks.  The Western central banks essentially donated that gold in an attempt to prop up their paper currencies.  Yet again these traitorous Western central bankers have given away more power. 

I see gold as power and once again they have given it away to the Eastern Hemisphere.  The Chinese continue to laugh.  As much as the Chinese would like to have a cheap gold price and have this manipulation keep going, they also want to bring the renminbi to the center stage.  

To them, it’s more important the Chinese currency becomes the world’s currency.  The dollar, despite the latest rally, is dying, we all know it’s dying.  So, the Chinese are moving to become the international currency of the world and the best way to do that is through gold.  It’s a very clever tactic.  Every time more gold arrives in China, the more their currency is backed, the closer they move technically to becoming the world’s reserve currency.”
