Dubai Global Gold Centre On Continuing Bullion Demand

Dubai Global Gold Centre On Continuing Bullion Demand

I am not surprised that business in Dubai has increased substantially. From what I see and hear, people in this region have no interest in what analysts at the major banks have to say about gold nor do they pay any attention to what Western main stream media has to report on gold. They are also not interested in the fact that Hedge funds in the West have trimmed their net long positions in gold. What is important to them is ownership of physical gold.

Silver Miners Have Been Exploited For Generations By The Pilgrims Society

Silver Miners Have Been Exploited For Generations By The Pilgrims Society

In his latest letter, Charles Savoie, silver expert and author, explains with a recent example how he has attempted to inform society since December 2004 that the precious metals suppression is coming from the top down from one organization only, with a branch in London and a branch in Manhattan: The Pilgrims Society. Savoie describes and documents at great length (+500 pages) at SilverStealers.net how members of the organization have been seizing silver, stealing silver, devastating silver mining companies, shoving silver and gold out of the money system, and feeding off mining shareholders carcasses since its founding in 1902-1903.

There Is No Direct Relationship Between Gold Price And ETF Stocks

There Is No Direct Relationship Between Gold Price And ETF Stocks

It does puzzle me why people think there should be a direct relationship between open interest or ETF stocks and price, given that they don’t have any problem understanding that the price of a company’s shares can go up and down while the number of shares on issues doesn’t change.

The Real Reason Why Platinum And Palladium Prices Will Rise

The Real Reason Why Platinum And Palladium Prices Will Rise

Platinum and palladium are primarily responsible for purifying the air from motor exhaust of most of the pollutants that threaten air quality. So far, the price increase has been entirely due to supply constraints. Demand has been steady because of a lackluster recovery. If we experience a recovery of demand, the impact on the price of the metals could be dramatic. I believe it’s a matter of ‘when,’ not ‘if’ that happens.

Official Trade Balance Manipulated by UK Sales Of 1464 Tonnes of Gold To Switzerland

Official Trade Balance Manipulated by UK Sales Of 1464 Tonnes of Gold To Switzerland

It appears that a massive 1464 tonnes of physical gold was sold from the UK to Switzerland in 2013, but that these figures were included in the Eurostat trade balance. The net result is that the UK trade deficit looked not that bad, while Switzerland had a spike in its trade surplus.
Of course, including gold sales in a trade balance does not make sense, and, ultimately, is proof of manipulation of data.

Ted Butler: Suing JPMorgan and the COMEX

Ted Butler: Suing JPMorgan and the COMEX

Here I am, directly and consistently accusing two of the world’s most important financial institutions of market manipulation (making sure I send each all my accusations) and I have received no complaint from either. I don’t think that has ever occurred previously. Now I am taking it one step further; presenting a guide for how and why JPMorgan and the CME should be sued for their manipulation of gold, silver, and copper.

“The negotiations are still ongoing,” Deutsche Bundesbank board member Carl-Ludwig Thiele said in a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal. “No one can see into the future, and therefore it is currently under discussion whether it should be continued,” he added. The Bundesbank currently holds around 3,400 metric tons of gold.

David Morgan: Gold and Silver Free Markets Will Take Over At Some Point

David Morgan: Gold and Silver Free Markets Will Take Over At Some Point

A lot of these paper markets are used by the powers that be to maintain a certain price level while the physical market is doing something else. That is the point about manipulation. Every manipulation in mankind has always come to a point because the free market is always smarter than mankind no matter how smart these people are.

Why Increased Western Gold Demand Could Lead To A Gold Supply Shortage

Why Increased Western Gold Demand Could Lead To A Gold Supply Shortage

From where will the gold ETF source their gold once the ETF demand turns higher again? It is clear that a supply shortage is a very likely outcome of renewed interest in gold ETF’s. We know that newly mined gold is limited compared to the existing above the ground gold, so it cannot meet Chinese and Western demand. In fact, above the ground gold IS the supply. So what happens if the appetite for gold in Asia remains strong, if those existing gold owners do not supply their gold to the market, and Western demand increases again?

In an article published on Sunday, a Financial Times editor explains how the London Gold Fix could be structurally manipulated. In a myserious way, however, the article disappeared shortly after getting published. Too late for Google’s spider who already registered the article in its memory.

Bundesbank Must Intervene To Reassure German Gold Will Come Back

Bundesbank Must Intervene To Reassure German Gold Will Come Back

The underlying dynamic can’t be more obvious. The Bundesbank was obviously not pleased by the questions that Handelsblatt brought up. The interview gives the impression that all is good with Germany’s gold. It is very likely that the Bundesbank asked the newspaper to make up on their previous article. Readers are invited to draw their own conclusions, based on the facts.
