The Gold Price Secret Wall Street Doesn’t Want to Talk About

It is now possible to classify every gold commentator and reporter on the planet as belonging to one of two camps: those who believe gold has been actively manipulated by government agents from 2011 to the present and those who believe the gold numbers (hence, the gold charts themselves) are pristine, correct, accurate, and reflect true demand and supply.

Can Investors Really Trust The New Gold Price Fixing?

The discontinuation of the previous gold price fixing doesn’t mean that price manipulation has ended. The modern procedure definitely represents progress though. Gold market manipulations are in any case mainly performed in the futures markets. They are merely more frequent and stronger during the fixings. Gold price manipulation continues.

Did COMEX Counterparty Risk Just Reach A Record High?

The turning point appears to have been the downturn in oil prices as traders began to hedge their counterparty risk in massive levered derivative positions tied to commodities. And it is not just banks… we suspect so is COMEX’s…The ‘claims per ounce of gold’ deliverable at current prices has spiked higher once again, to 126:1.

Gold on Sale, Says the Rational Investor

With so much gloom and doom in the media surrounding gold right now, you might wonder why coin sales are soaring at multiyear highs. The reason is pretty simple: Gold is on SALE.

Gold Miners And Regulators Deathly Silent after Gold Price Attack

The Gold Price Being Manipulated. So What?

Manipulation Cannot Stop Gold From Rising Significantly

It was only after the Libor scandal, that the awareness of the broad public was opened to manipulation in all sorts of financial assets like currencies, commodities, gold and silver, etc. Gold is a liquid store of value and manipulation cannot stop gold from rising significantly.

The Gold Price Manipulation, London Gold Fix and the Quantum

If I were to criticize the Gold Fix I would certainly concede that its rather stupidly named. The Gold Fix is a real trading price & not a survey, like LIBOR & it is not a chart of quotes, like the Bloomberg spot gold ticker. Its a price at which a large number of buyers & sellers chose to deal & this makes it real.

Two Reasons On Why The Fed Is Tapering

Why is the Fed Tapering? Perhaps the Fed understands that a dollar crisis is a bigger crisis than a bank crisis and that its bailout of the banks is undermining the dollar. The question is: will the Fed let the banks go in order to save the dollar?

Naked Gold Shorts: The Hows and Whys of Gold Price Manipulation

The Gold Price Manipulation consists of the Fed using bullion banks as its agents to sell naked gold shorts in the New York Comex futures market. Short selling drives down the gold price, triggers stop-loss orders and margin calls, and scares participants out of the gold trusts.
