  GATA needs help, so please consider buying a T-shirt
Challenging all the money and power in the world, GATA long has operated more or less on a shoestring. This has largely been our own fault, insofar as we have put most of our effort into research and clamor and little into fundraising. The situation has gotten critical over the last year as central banks have intensified their efforts to suppress monetary metals prices, most of the monetary metals mining industry has chosen to curl up and die guietly rather than fight back, and metals investors

Koos Jansen: Demand on Shanghai Gold Exchange remains steady
Withdrawals from the Shanghai Gold Exchange for the week ending July 4 were very close to withdrawals for the previous week, continuing at a rate that, annualized, would reach 1,900 tonnes, according to gold researcher and GATA consultant Koos Jansen's report today. But, Jansen writes, Shanghai gold has been trading at a slight discount to London gold, indicating no shortage in China at the moment.

Safe Deposit Boxes Are Not Safe for Silver & Gold Buyers 
Many silver and gold buyers forget one of the main reasons to buy physical silver and gold bullion today is due to the world's current fragile financial system. Some even make the mistake of buying physical bullion and then storing it in a Safe Deposit Box at their local bank.  Why is that a mistake? Safe "deposits" held within regulated bank boxes are not very safe, nor private, nor FDIC insured deposits. Here are some major drawbacks of putting bullion into Safe Deposit Boxes: - Mos

NY Fed Joins War On Whistleblowers To Shield Goldman Sachs From Its Own Examiner
And this sort of egregious behaviour from a 'regulator.'  They argue out of both sides of their mouths whether Goldman is a 'bank' or not, in order to get what they want for...  Goldman. The Fed is not a government agency, but a privately owned creature of the very Banks whom it is charged to regulate and restrain.
