Gold And Silver Traders Rejoice - Manipulation Lawsuit Against Banks To Proceed

A US Federal Court has found that a lawsuit – the first of its kind – has merit and will now proceed to rule on the following claims versus HSBC and Bank of Nova Scotia. And so the discovery process begins, which will expose just how much market manipulation takes place in the silver (initially as there is a parallel lawsuit taking place with regard to gold) market by major banks.

When There is Fear Everywhere, That’s When Gold and Silver Perform Best

Right now, this is a very scary time… People want to hop out of traditional assets and find safety in the oldest currency in the world – Gold and Silver. If and when things get worse, panicked and concerned citizens the world over will continue to shift capital into safe haven assets like gold and silver, which will be the only currencies left standing when it really hits the fan.

Are Central Banks Running the Crude Oil Market or Just the World?

The price of oil has been rising, no matter how bad the oversupply news gets. How today’s oil prices are really determined is done by a process so opaque only a handful of major oil trading banks have any idea who is buying or selling oil futures or derivative contracts that set physical oil prices in this strange new world of “paper oil”.

China needs a lot of Gold to make-up for the Loss Expected on Treasuries

Right now, China’s reserves are about $3.2 trillion, of which about $2 trillion is denominated in US dollars, and most of that are U.S. Treasury Securities. They can’t dump them. So what the Chinese are doing instead is they’re acquiring gold as a hedge. China is going to be in this position where they lose on the paper, but they make it up on the gold.

Silver Fundamentals: Numbers Don’t Lie, But Few Understand Its Significance

“Numbers don’t lie – people do.” This brings us to the silver market, and some numbers that illustrate some unequivocal truths. The world will eventually run out of silver, and it will happen soon. Roughly one billion ounces of stockpiled silver has been consumed over just the last decade alone. The numbers don’t tell us that this silver default might happen, they tell us that it will happen.

What it means when Gold and Silver sell at a NEGATIVE price

Consider gold and silver, two obvious long-term stores of value whose prices have been in decline. Bear in mind these are paper prices, i.e. prices set in broken commodities markets, heavily influenced by central banks, and criminally manipulated by investment banks. So is this price really a valid indicator of their worth? Not by a long shot.

China’s Master Gold Plan, Restated

“China increased its gold reserves 57%,” reports Bloomberg this morning. While tapping this reckoning out, Jim called from the road. “China is feigning transparency with a ‘don’t rock the gold boat’ strategy,” he said in reaction to today’s announcement. “It’s a misrepresentation of the facts. They absolutely have more gold than they’re reporting.

Are Big Banks Using Derivatives To Manipulate Gold And Silver Prices?

Gold and silver futures markets are places where people speculate on price direction. The fact that bullion prices are determined in this paper, speculative market & not in real physical markets where people sell or acquire physical bullion, is the reason the bullion banks can manipulate the price of gold and silver, irrespective of the demand for the physical metals.

Price Manipulation In The Oil Markets?

Whether price manipulation is occurring now in energy prices is debatable but be aware, as where there is smoke, there is fire. The question: When is enough, enough? When does it ultimately damage the faith in “free” trading in all assets among investors? Volumes have been declining reflecting a loss in investor confidence.

What Is Certain Is The Huge Demand for Gold And Silver

All we can do is maintain a focus when it comes to buying and owning physical gold and silver. Forget about price. It is purposefully being manipulated by Western elite’s central bankers. Nothing can be done about the low gold and silver prices until all of this underhanded, behind the scenes payback is fulfilled.

There can be no Clearer Proof of Manipulation in COMEX Silver

There can be no clearer proof of manipulation in COMEX silver than was documented in the COT Report as on May 19, 2015. In just one reporting week, more managed money contracts were bought & more commercial contracts were sold in COMEX silver and gold futures than ever in over 30 year history of the COT report.

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.

We're Close To A Point Where COMEX Price Manipulation Becomes Ineffective

Judging by the increasing numbers of commentators & observers now including the developments in futures trading on the COMEX as the prime price influence on gold and silver, I am greatly encouraged. I firmly believe that we are much closer than ever to the point where enough see the COMEX price manipulation to render it ineffective.

Why Gold Price Manipulation is Now a Global Effort

Here’s the problem: If you took the lid off and ended the gold price manipulation and let gold find its level, China would be left in the dust. It wouldn’t have enough gold relative to the other countries & because their economy’s growing faster & because the price of gold would be skyrocketing, they could never acquire it fast enough.

No Proof JPMorgan Not the Big Buyer of Silver Eagles

The most plausible explanation for why such an extraordinary number of Silver Eagles were sold in 2014 relative to Gold Eagles is the presence of a big silver buyer. Silver Eagles only account for a small slice of what I allege JPMorgan has acquired in terms of physical silver. If JPM has acquired the amount of silver I claim, it’s no small matter.

How Gold And Silver Price Decline And Short Covering Was Manufactured

JPMorgan rigs the price lower on those big down days, but not by selling enormous quantities of COMEX silver contracts short. JPM gets the price snowball rolling down by selling a small quantity of contracts short at critical times with the intent of inducing technical funds to sell larger quantities which JPM & other commercials then buy.

How Much Gold is on Loan Worldwide?

Central banks manipulate gold prices with derivative products in a very opaque way. Central bank accounting for gold is rather peculiar: gold receivables and bullion still in their vaults are treated as a single line item in their balance sheets. This makes it almost impossible for outsiders to ascertain how much of their gold is actually on loan.

New 'LBMA Silver Price' - Still Not Transparent

During the last few days it has become apparent that the entire formulation & implementation of the new silver pricing process appears to have been rushed through, with market participants now fearful that it may not be able to provide a silver price benchmark for the myriad users who are depending on a silver price benchmark.

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.
