Koos Jansen: The gold-backed oil-yuan futures contract myth
Gold researcher and Chinese gold market expert Koos Jansen today argues that the Nikkei Asian Review's September 1 report asserting that China is planning an oil futures contract somehow "backed" by gold -- -- is full of holes. Jansen writes: "China hasn't announced anything but an oil-yuan futures contract. Gold has nothing to do with it. "Yuan can technically be spent on gold at the Shanghai Gold Exchange but gold in

  The Gold-Backed-Oil-Yuan Futures Contract Myth
On September 1, 2017, the Nikkei Asian Review published an article titled, “China sees new world order with oil benchmark backed by gold”, written by Damon Evans. Just below the headline in the introduction it states, “China is expected shortly to launch a crude oil futures contract priced in yuan and convertible into gold in what analysts say could be a game-changer for the industry”. Not long after the Nikkei piece was released ‘the story’ was widely copied in sensational analyses throughout t

Oil for gold – the real story
Following an article in the Nikkei Asia Review, which reported China will shortly introduce an oil futures contract priced in yuan, there has been some confusion about what it means. The article pointed out that in combination with existing gold futures priced in yuan, an oil exporter to China contracting to accept yuan could use these two futures contracts to take delivery of physical gold in payment for oil.I was quoted in that article as follows:"It is a mechanism which is likely to appeal to

Tokenization of Gold
The Blockchain technology enables tokenization of gold. What does it mean for the precious metals market? Usually, investors consider precious metals and cryptocurrencies as substitutes, as the value of both asset classes depends on the level of faith in the national fiat currencies. However, a few cryptocurrencies backed by gold exist, potentially creating some synergies. For example, there is OneGram, which is a sharia-compliant cryptocurrency backed by gold. It means that each token is backed

Hugo Salinas Price: The gold worm on the yuan hook
If China really starts facilitating an oil trade in yuan that are quickly convertible to gold in Shanghai, Hugo Salinas Price writes today, oil sellers will not be the only ones interested in such transactions. As the gold price rises from increased demand in the oil trade, Salinas Price writes, other sellers of commodities probably will start wanting gold in exchange as well. Salinas Price, president of the Mexican Civic Association for Silver, concludes: "The implications I see for the Chines

Published References which Gave Rise to my Article 'Prospects for Gold II', Sept. 25, 2017.
Documento sin título My recent article, 'Prospects for Gold II', published on my website, on September 25, 2017, dealt with the possible consequences of a Chinese plan to offer oil exporters to China payment in Chinese yuan, with an added incentive to accept the yuan in payment of oil, in the form of the purchase on world markets of gold in exchange for the yuan, in case the oil exporters should be reluctant to hold yuan balances in their favor. My article was criticized as a

A Never Ending Supply of Oil/Yuan/Gold Backed Contracts - Rory Hall
Another article about the oil/yuan/gold contract with ZERO source links to the contract or providing the name/department of the Chinese official that is supposed to be making this announcement. How can something change anything when there is zero substance? We published the contract and the futures contract that is on the Shanghai International Energy Exchange – click here – There is zero use of the word gold; there is zero information about gold being used in any form for this contract.

Bullion Star's gold demand charts for September
Bullion Star's gold demand charts for September, published yesterday, suggest that gold withdrawals from the Shanghai Gold Exchange for 2017 will exceed 1,900 tonnes, signifying fairly strong demand. Russia, Bullion Star adds, seems likely to surpass China in officially reported gold reserves by April 2018, though of course China is believed to have much more gold in accounts controlled by the government than it reports publicly. Bullion Star says physical gold holdings by "transparent" gold f

Jim Rickards is on record forecasting $10,000 gold. But is China about to provide the catalyst to send gold even higher? And by how much? Today, we fare forth in the spirit of speculation… follow facts down strange roads… and arrive at a destination stranger still… China — the world’s largest oil importer — struck lightning through international markets recently.

  China, oil for gold and the Prospects for Gold 
The Chinese have announced that they have perfected a scheme, to be launched formally in the market by the end of the year, by means of which exporters of oil to China will accept the Chinese currency, the Yuan, in payment for the oil; for this deal, the Chinese have added an incentive: the Yuan received by the oil exporters will be exchangeable for gold. This gold will be "sourced" i.e. "purchased" outside of China, for the oil exporters. Thus, the oil exporters' Yuan wi
