    I finally found some data on Chinese silver imports through the Silver Investment Conference here. You will have to register for free there. Some interesting keynote speakers I like are Eric Sprott, David Morgan, James Turk. You can watch them today live.

    Apparently the Chinese have been net buyers of silver, just as they have been becoming net buyers of gold (Chart 1).

    Anatal Feteke hypothesizes that China has lots of domestic silver from its silver standard days. You heard anything on this?

    Author’s reply » That's all speculation, who knows how much silver the Chinese have. I know they have very little gold, so it's not unimaginable that they have very little silver as well, because these two go in tandem. You can see the same happening in imports, they go in tandem.
