Central Banks Net Buyers Of Gold.......
Sieht so aus als meine Kritik ( siehe Gold & The Wisdom Of Central Bankers ) etwas zu breitgefächert war. Hätte wohl richtiger "Gold & The Wisdom Of Western Central Bankers" heißen müssen..... ;-)
Gold demand declines in Q2, still high Rolfe Winkler
The central bank sector had a dampening impact on supply - net purchases of 14 tonnes were recorded in Q2’09 compared to net sales of 69 tonnes in Q2’08, the figures indicating the first net purchase by central banks for a considerable length of time.> Check out the rest of the link .

China's gold buy raises eyebrows for all the right reasons MW May 1, 2009
Disclosure: "Goldbug" ;-)
The precious-metals market took notice for all the right -- but not-so-obvious -- reasons when China announced last week that it ramped up its gold reserves by 76% in the last six years.
Last week, China announced that the amount of gold in its reserves has climbed to 1,054 tons from 600 tons in 2003
It also asked the International Monetary Fund to sell its entire 3,217 tons reserve
China's gold reserves are worth almost $31 billion -- about 1.6% of its total foreign- exchange reserve holdings, and gold as a percent of the country's total reserves has actually declined since 2003, according to Sam Subramanian, editor of AlphaProfit Sector Investors' Newsletter.
To put that into better perspective, if China was to purchase the IMF's reserves of 3,217 tons at a price of $1,000 per ounce, the price would be $103 billion, according to Kosares.
