China and SDRs

China is widely believed to be making a play for its currency, the Yuan or Remnimbi (RMB), to be included in the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) Program later this year. If China fails to gain inclusion in the SDR, its recent initiatives to strengthen its currency and gain greater acceptance of the Yuan may provide a strong alternative to the IMF regime.

The establishment of a Shanghai Gold Exchange Fund buttresses China’s position as a global gold player and economic power.

Chinese Gold Imports

In addition to the vibrant Shanghai Gold Exchange, China is also one of the world’s leading gold importers. Here is a chart showing the volumes of gold traded on the Shanghai Gold Exchange vs. gold imported through Hong Kong.

China is the world’s largest gold producer with mining production over 400 tons a year.

Today’s announcement indicates that China is serious about playing a greater role in determining the price of gold.

“China does not have a big say in gold pricing because it accounts for a small share of international gold trade,” said Tang Xisheng of the Industrial Fund Management Co. “Therefore, the Chinese government seeks to increase the influence of RMB in gold pricing by opening the domestic gold market to international investors.”

In the Importance of Gold To Nations and Individuals we noted China wrote in its state run news agency on October 13, 2013 about the United States “such alarming days when the destinies of others are in the hands of a hypocritical nation have to be terminated“.

It seems China is determined to gain more economic autonomy and influence in the global gold market and international trade. The Shanghai Gold Exchange Fund may have a big impact on global gold demand and how the price of gold is deterimined.

Will China revalue the price of gold?
