I can't help, but think that the world is going under some sort of major transformation.

India’s gold imports plunged 86% year-on-year in June due to record high prices, international air travel being banned and many jewellery shops remaining shut amid a nationwide lockdown to curb the spread of COVID-19, a government source said.

They went from a median of around 1 billion per year in the last 5 years and jumped to 9 billion just in the first half of 2020. Remains to be seen if that increases during the duration of the rest of the year.

Is there any precedent to this?
Why would they need to stockpile gold when their currency and the world currency is no longer backed by gold?
Why would they need to do this when the world trades in US dollars anyway?

It seems like pre-emptive behaviour to me.

In other news it seems that China and possibly other countries are fabricating fake gold to use as collateral to secure huge monetary loans.

Why would US increase gold import based on the decrease in China and India imports? Has this move by China and India decreased the price of gold?
