  No Manipulation, After All
In the never-ending search to either verify or rebut one’s own findings, I’d like you to consider something different today. I’m going to ask you to set aside my highly specific allegations of wrong-doing in the silver and gold markets, mostly centering on JPMorgan, and focus instead on whether if what I allege is really wrong or even matters much. Even though my allegations are based upon data published by the CFTC and CME Group, I would ask you to put that aside and consider that I may have be

Nick Barisheff: Gold price manipulation isn't mere conspiracy theory anymore
In an address this month to the Empire Club of Canada in Toronto, perhaps the country's most esteemed public forum, Bullion Management Group founder, president, and chief executive officer Nick Barisheff said gold market manipulation is no longer mere conspiracy theory "promoted by gold bugs and organizations like GATA" but is becoming "self-evident." Barisheff described the suppression of the gold price through derivatives trading in which virtually no metal ever changes hands. He quoted the d

Gold EFPs: Absolute Proof that the Paper Gold Price is a Fraud 
In recent months, the issuance of gold Exchange for Physical (EFP) contracts has surged. EFPs convert a physically deliverable Comex gold contract into an LBMA or LME contract supposedly deliverable at a later date ex London and/or Hong Kong. As an incentive for Comex contract holders to accept EFPs, a cash bonus reportedly is paid. EFPs in silver are also being issued in vast quantities, but we will focus on gold for brevity.Most gold market observers believe that EFPs are a Comex gimmick desig

Bitcoin’s Historic Growth to $10,000 and Bright Future Ahead
2017 has been an epic and historic year for bitcoin and the crypto community.  The total market cap of all coins combined has grown from a mere $18.3 billion in January 2017 to over $300 billion as we enter December of the same year.  The price of bitcoin reached a then-historic high of $1,000 on New Year’s Day.  After pulling back to as low as $750 by March, a slow and steady rebound began.  By May 1st, it made another all-time high of $1,400.  And now, seven months later, $10,000 has at last b

Backing Out
News reports this week indicated that the Bank of Nova Scotia (ScotiaBank), Canada’s third largest bank, had put its precious metals operation, ScotiaMocatta, up for sale. Various sources said the unit had been for sale for a year or so and it was thought or hoped that Chinese interests might buy the business. It was also reported that the Bank of Nova Scotia would shrink the unit if no buyer could be found. The impetus for the sale was said to be a scandal involving smuggled gold from South Ame

  The Gold Industry is in a Deep State of Dysfunction, Delusion and Denial - Stewart Dougherty 
In 1980, the Financial Deep State realized that there existed an extraordinary opportunity for serial plunder and profiteering: the manipulation of the gold and silver markets. They immediately mobilized to exploit it. During the subsequent 37+ years (we are now well into the 38th), the Deep State manipulators have criminally looted the gold and silver markets, pocketing astronomical profits for themselves in the process, all of which have come from real victims on the other sides of their fraud

Is the COMEX Rigged
The COMEX gold futures market and the London OTC gold market have a joint monopoly on setting the international gold price. This is because these two markets generate the largest ‘gold’ trading volumes and have the highest ‘liquidity’. However, this price setting dominance is despite either of these two markets actually trading physical gold bars. Both markets merely trade different forms of derivatives of gold bars. Overall, the COMEX (which is owned by the CME Group) is even more dominant that

By Egon von Greyerz As we approach the beginning of the greatest wealth destruction in history, it is an absolute certainty that no one will escape the suffering that will be brought upon the world. The ones who will suffer the least financially are of course the poorest since they have very little to lose. At the same time, many of the poor will die of famine and disease. The middle class will also suffer since many will lose their jobs. They will lose pensions as well, since pension funds will

What sets the Gold Price – Is it the Paper Market or Physical Market
The following article is arranged in Question and Answer (Q & A) format. Through the Q & A approach, this article raises some important issues about price discovery in the gold markets and aims to explain the view that the gold price is being set by the paper gold markets. BullionStar’s CEO Torgny Persson and precious metals analyst Ronan Manly are of the opinion that due to the structure of contemporary gold markets, it is primarily trading activity in the paper gold markets which sets the inte

The Deep State’s Gold Scam And The Demonization Of Russia - Dave Kranzler/Stewart Dougherty 
Guest post from Stewart Dougherty: As the Fiscal Year 2018 budget, and particularly its war component are floated, it has become clear that without continued, massive military spending, paid for with mass-produced electrons masquerading as money, U. S. GDP would collapse, taking the country’s financial and monetary systems with it. The nation, whose real economy has been hollowed out, for profit, by the Deep State plunderers, has become significantly reliant upon deliberately contrived war

Gold Price Discovery Shifting to Physical Shanghai Gold Exchange as Prices Diverge vs LBMA
The launch of the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) was a promising event for gold investors. The exchange provides a new benchmark price for gold bullion with a much higher backing of contracts by actual physical metal. Many hope this new price benchmark will challenge or one day replace the Western price benchmarks that are widely believed to be manipulated. To underscore the importance of this new pricing center, Craig Hemke of the TF Metals Report said: This is one of the biggest developments tha

On April 19, China officially validated the rumor and initiated a new Yuan denominated gold price at the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE).

As price discovery moves from West to East, many expect an upward revision to the gold and silver prices.This is also coming on the heels of Deutsche Bank admitting to rigging the gold and silver price. As part of their settlement, it is rumored tha
