It is very hard to resist the urge to label members of the mainstream media “parrots”, when time after time we see this herd unanimously regurgitating the exact, same drivel – no matter how vacuous or absurd the pseudo-reasoning on display.
We observe this sad truth again and again in precious metals markets, with the recent pullback in prices being a classic example. Today was a down-day for commodities – all of them – as the propaganda machine decreed that with a slowing global economy that they were “too risky”.
The simple fact that we see the entire commodities complex moving in lock-step on most days is conclusive proof by itself of the rampant manipulation of commodities markets in general, and precious metals markets in particular. Each individual commodity market is composed of two sets of parameters: “global” parameters (applicable to most/all commodities), and the individual parameters particular to each commodity – separately.
