I have wondered over the last year or so why have the US and China been meeting so often and what are they discussing? Between Yellen, Blinken and now Biden himself there have been numerous meetings, vists to China etc. Mario seems to have an answer that makes a lot of sense. Part of the suppression of gold prices is a benign allowing of keeping the price down from where it would otherwise be, to accomodate China accumulating gold. In return China is slow walking their selling of US Treasuries. The US is probably offering expertise to China and it’s officials and bankers on how to bailout and restructure their collapsing real estate sector. The US knows the suppression via futures is going to end soon enough. They are helping China transition to replacing the Comex and LBMA with it’s Shanghai exchange for physical gold and silver.
