Ovvero: Pararsi un po' il cul* in questo pazzo pazzo mondo di carte filigranate, iperfinanza globalizzata e picco delle risorse

Un gigante del trading in commodities, Gunvor Group, esce dal mercato dell'oro per mancanza di offerta certificata

I Tylers ci raccontano come il Gunvor Group Ltd, uno dei pochi grossi player di livello globale, ha appena lasciato il trading in oro fisico - anche - per via della difficolta' di trovare oro su cui non salti fuori domani un qualcuno a reclamarne la proprieta' in virtu' di accordi e contratti precedenti:

Because if the world's fifth largest trader of commodities has chosen to outright not trade gold, and thus not generate value for its shareholders over risks and fears that another, or two, or three, or a countless number of other prior "owners" may come knocking one day and demanding delivery of gold whose origin could not be documented by its trading intermediaries, and whose ownership link Gunvor is unable to trace, then just what on earth is really going on with the world's physical gold inventory (here's looking at you, Chinese gold-backed Commodity Funding Deals), and just what is the catalyst that will unleash what is essentially the infamous US mortgage robosigning scandal onto the gold arena, at which point owners of gold realize the gold they thought they owned, even if held safely in a deposit box deep in a gold vault in a safe offshore location, in reality "belongs" to someone else?

Come riporta Bloomberg:
"executives decided to abandon the precious metals trading business partly because of difficulties in finding steady supplies of gold where the origin could be well documented, one of the people said."
