Breaking News: Gold Price Manipulation

2010-04-13 6 comments

While we had planned an in-depth post on how the gold price was manipulated over the past several decades in a few days’ time, there has just been a whistle-blower who went public two days ago:

“The banks, which do the Federal Reserve’s bidding in the metals markets, have long been the government’s lead actors in keeping down the prices of gold and silver, according to a former Goldman Sachs trader working at the London Bullion Market Association.” (Emphasis CrisisMaven)

Read the full story in the New York Post – MICHAEL GRAY: “Metal$ are in the pits – Trader blows whistle on gold & silver price manipulation“, Last Updated: 4:33 AM, April 11, 2010.

If you want to know the complete proof, go to GATA – Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee, esp. their “Documentation“.

After all, aren’t banks the “eponym” of creditworthy, so to speak?
