Jim Rickards contact “Goldfinger,” a gold industry insider, first clued us into an important gold flow reversal happening. You might recall their live broadcast. In the months just before that meeting in Zurich with Goldfinger, over 170 tons of gold flowed back into London. Instead of coming out of London, into Switzerland, and then heading over to China and India, China and India slowed down their imports and gold starting to flow back into London.
Since then, the U.S. has become a significant gold importer, if you can believe it. Gold is flowing from vaults in London, Switzerland and even Dubai to destinations in the U.S. (If you’re wondering, there are no gold mines in Dubai; it’s all warehouse gold.)
