How Gold and Silver or Other Commodity Prices Are Set

The price of everything in the world has a price discovery process, which is just a fancy way of saying how prices get set. But what used to set prices and is still thought by most to continue to set commodity prices, no longer sets price over the intermediate time frame. The process has been completely upended & there has been a price setting revolution in some important world commodities.

Concentrated COMEX Silver Shorts - The Greatest Lie in the History of Market Regulation

Until the physical market overwhelms the COMEX silver concentrated short scam, the big shorts may continue to prevail, although they have been seriously underwater of late, for the first time ever. Being the key factor in silver and gold, it will be the resolution and eventual dissolution of the concentrated short position that will drive silver prices in the future. I encourage all to dig into this issue.

CFTC doesn't know, nor wants to know Anything about the Commodity Market Rigging

Being unaware of the Deutsche Bank market rigging story, untill 10 days later, gives the impression that the CFTC not only doesn’t know what’s going on in its jurisdiction but also that it doesn’t want to know. It is additional evidence that certain commodity market rigging is outside the commission’s concern because the governments are the actual perpetrators.

How Automated Trading / Algorithms Can Affect Commodity Trading

Automated trading accounts for more than 70% of all futures trading. Regulators have set their sights on regulating automated trading in the commodities market with controversial new rules.

Investors had accused Deutsche Bank, HSBC & ScotiaBank of abusing their power as three of the world’s largest silver bullion banks to dictate the price of silver.

The full shocking letter can be read here.

What Most Gold Bugs Don’t Understand

The super-spike in gold prices will not come from any of the obvious sources but from an unexpected source. It could have nothing to do with gold, It could be a war or a pandemic that frightens people into safeguarding wealth. A single snowflake is so small you never see it coming but can turn a seemingly stable snowpack into a roaring avalanche. Once that begins, there’s no stopping it.

Economic Truth Must be Masked to Cover Gold and Silver Market Reality

The global financial system has gone awry where economic truth must be masked and hidden to cover the reality. How is it credible that COMEX can sell 12 times as much gold in just 30 minutes as they claim to have available for delivery? As for you as an individual investor, can you see the danger here? A failure to deliver will be catastrophic. Can you handle the ugly truth?

Mysterious "Massive" Seller Who Flash Crashed Gold In 2014 Finally Revealed

Gold will remain manipulated & viciously slammed until such time as the suppressed price can be allowed to recover its fair value, which will only happen once those who are accumulating massive amount of physical have their fill. In the meantime, if you can’t beat them may as well join them, as long as physical gold continues to be quite explicitly “on sale.”

One Of The World's Largest Silver Miners Slams The CFTC About Silver Market Manipulation

A Canadian silver miner has decided to take the CFTC to task about the concentrated shorting in Comex silver market. We salute First Majestic with this first public appeal by a corporation to CFTC to stop the rigging in the silver market, but have absolute certainty that this complaint too will promptly end up in trash.

Traders Are Buying Gold & Silver At Fastest Pace In Over A Decade

Large speculators increased their net long gold exposure to $14.8bn from $9.2bn & Silver net long position to $4.4bn from $2.4bn notional. It seems as if Yellen’s introduction of complications has led to at least contemplation about it, tipping the scales, ever so slightly, back toward financial suicide.

Silver Manipulation Solution : 17 Requirements for a Freely Traded Silver Market Structure

A fair & viable silver derivative market where no trader or group of traders can intentionally influence the price of physical silver. The 17 requirements to restart the silver trading markets after current manipulative structure ends. Until these recommendations are met there is NO CHANCE of a truly free market in silver developing.

Alarming Gold Market Manipulations Underway

Here’s an amazing interview about the secretive and far-reaching gold price suppression scheme that’s been going on behind the scenes. Chris Powell of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee, or GATA, who is working to expose the manipulation of the gold and silver markets, tells all in an exclusive interview.

CME Implements Gold, Precious Metals Circuit Breakers Up To $400 Wide

Effective for trade date Mon, Dec 22, 2014, & pending all relevant CFTC regulatory review periods, NYMEX & COMEX will implement new Rule 589 (Special Price Fluctuation Limits) to apply price fluctuation limits to precious metals futures and options contracts. Wonder why now & what does CME know about upcoming volatility that nobody else does.

Elliott Wave Charts Point to Shocking Counter-Trend for Gold

The dollar has had a major run since May & we’re in the very latter stages of a five-wave rally from the May low. Just as gold had a five-wave decline and came into a low and is now due for a big B-wave rally. Something similar could be said for the dollar, but in the opposite direction. A gold rally is likely to unfold over several months.

Silver Open Interest Anomaly

Open interest is roughly 175,000 contracts, which is about 875,000,000 ounces of paper silver. At market price that is about $13 Billion, or only about 15% of what the Fed created each month during QE3. It would take very little digital currency, relatively speaking, to buy all the open interest, or to crush prices via naked sales of paper contracts.

Paper Gold and Its Effect on the Gold Price

Huge orders for paper gold can move the price by $20 in a second. These orders often exceed the CME stated limit of 6,000 contracts. Big banks can drive down gold prices by delivering relatively small amounts of gold. These banks are the market. $360 billion of paper gold is traded per month, but only $279 million of physical gold is delivered.

How Much Does It Cost To Keep JPMorgan FX-Riggers Out Of Jail?

Another day, another major bank adjusts its reported data based on ‘all-new’ information about regulatory probes over its market manipulation. Last week was Citi, this week it’s JPMorgan… with a double-whammy. The SEC had sanctioned 13 firms – including JPMorgan – for violating a rule primarily designed to protect retail investors.

The Silver Conspiracy

I truly believed the manipulation was limited to a small handful of COMEX insider firms & individual traders. No more is that the case. Despite not looking for a conspiracy, the greater weight & flow of the evidence convinces me one exists in silver. It is not just a small group of traders involved, but has now grown much more.
