Jan Nieuwenhuijs

Jan's first career was in the Dutch movie industry as a sound engineer. In 2014 he decided to switch jobs and started researching gold. At first he mainly wrote about the Chinese gold market, for which he gained global recognition. Subsequently, he also began analyzing other parts of the gold market, such as the COMEX futures market, the London Bullion Market, and the Turkish gold market. In addition he has expanded his field of research to macro economics. Currently, he writes about the international monetary system, central bank gold policies, the mechanics of the global gold market, the gold price and economics in general. When he’s not researching economics Jan likes to play various sports, read books, meditate, and watch documentaries.
