  Another smoking gun of market rigging, but Warburton saw it all back in 2001 
In his profound and prophetic essay 13 years ago, "The Debasement of World Currency: It is Inflation, But Not as We Know It" -- http://www.gata.org/node/8303 -- the British economist Peter Warburton realized that central banks had abused their unlimited power of money creation and that this had impelled them into comprehensive commodity market rigging and price suppression to save the financial system they had perverted. "What we see at present," Warburton wrote, "is a battle between the central

U.S. gold reserve is leased but undeliverable, Jim Rickards tells Peter Schiff
Interviewed by fund manager Peter Schiff, geo-political strategist, author, and fund manager James G. Rickards asserts, among other things, that: -- The U.S. gold reserve has been leased out but has not left its vaults. -- The leased gold consists only of certificates of title that have been rehypothecated many times, creating a vast supply of imaginary gold that is undeliverable. -- If called for delivery, those certificates will be nullified by a bullion bank's claim of "force majeure" and set

Bullion Management Group: The manipulation of the gold market is self-evident
Paul de Sousa, executive vice president of Bullion Management Group in Toronto, has written a wonderful report summarizing some of the history, documentation, and purposes of gold price suppression by Western governments. De Sousa begins: "Arthur Schopenhauer said that 'all truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.' Well, it is now self-evident that the gold market is manipulated." De Sousa's report d

Another FT reader got nowhere asking why the gold manipulation story was ...
Our friend and consultant R.M. in the United Kingdom, noting GATA's exchange today with the Financial Times -- http://www.gata.org/node/14283 -- relates an experience similar to that of our friend R.B. in the U.K., an FT subscriber who for five months prodded the newspaper for an explanation of the newspaper's quick deletion from its Internet site of its February 24 report about concerns about gold market manipulation. While R.B. eventually got an explanation from the newspaper's customer servic

The critical questions Kitco never put to Doug Casey about gold price suppression 
Interviewed this week at the Freedom Fest conference in Las Vegas by Daniela Cambone of Kitco News, Casey Research founder Doug Casey called complaints of gold price suppression "ridiculous." Governments can't be suppressing the price of gold, Casey maintained, because gold has done rather well for four decades, because governments own a smaller share of the world's gold than they used to, and because all governments are bankrupt.

Manipulation is Still Alive and Well in the Gold Market 
By Toby Connor, GoldScentsIf one looks at a longer term chart of the last two years it?s very clear that gold is being capped at certain levels, and those levels are slowly forcing gold lower and lower. Each one of these manipulation zones are being defended successfully and that has some serious connotations going forward.This all started right after the announcement of QE3. Gold was driven below $1700 and held below that level for 2 months. This got the ball rolling so to speak, it broke an in

Gold and Silver Manipulation in the Eyes of the Chinese 
What a tragic mess the global economy has become with no hope of any outcome other than systemic currency collapse.  Each day, our “contrarian” view that sovereign Treasury yields will plunge toward a Japan-like zero is validated further, per what we wrote in May’s “Most Damning Proof Yet of QE Failure.”  In other words, irrespective of inexorably rising inflation, particularly in “emerging markets” most vulnerable to Western printing presses, global “big money” will bid Western sovereign bonds

Technical analysis of markets begins to suspect its obsolescence 
Acknowledging that the usefulness of technical analysis is increasingly doubted as market manipulation intensifies, newsletter writer and technical analyst Tim W. Wood notes today that manipulation is as old as markets themselves and quotes various authorities to the effect that manipulation cannot long defeat any market's "primary trend." But Wood's authorities all precede the seizure of absolute economic power by the U.S. government, implemented by the Federal Reserve and Treasury Department a

The Ultimate Gold Manipulation Primer
We have something very important to say today, but before doing so, want to keep the expanding worldwide economic collapse front and center.  In our view, the universal “realization of reality” is the most likely cause of the inevitable systemic financial crash – and conversely, the “reclaiming” of gold and silver’s rightful roles as the world’s only real money.  Let’s start with China, where it’s “miraculous” 10% equity surge this month is due to one thing and one thing only; i.e., the initiati
