China Desperate for Gold

Reported by imarketnews.com:
Sales by overseas central banks could see a sharp fall in gold prices, the Financial News reported Wednesday, citing Zou Pingzuo, a central bank researcher.

“Investors should be careful about investing in gold. Gold prices could fall sharply because of intensive gold sales by the U.S. and other overseas central banks,” Zou said.

To me this a sign of desperation by the Chinese. There has been no indication by the US to sell and all recent talk is about central banks buying. They are trying the old scare tactic of central bank selling to try and push the gold price down. They want to buy as much gold as they can but don’t like the current high price.  I think they are hoping this “bubble” will deflate and they can continue with their sneaky “get out of dollars and buy gold”. What happens when the Chinese realise the price isn’t going to drop? Will they be forced to go all out and start buying whatever physical they can?
