Gold markets have jumped the gun of Bernanke climb-down

Ben Bernanke has not retreated from monetary tightening. The Fed is still on track to start tapering bond purchases as soon as September. There has been no volte-face.

The broad U6 measure of US unemployment jumped in June from 13.8pc to 14.3pc. Stephen Lewis from Monuments says this is biggest increase since 2009. The number working part-time – by compulsion, not choice – rose by 322,000 in a single month.

    Gold leasing is a fraud because central banks haven’t wanted their metal back

    But the bigger fraud here is on the gold and currency markets. For while gold is an asset of central banks, its value is the reciprocal of assets far more important to them — their currencies and government bonds.

    When they have lent gold in recent decades, Western central banks have not really wanted it back; rather they have wanted the gold price suppressed or controlled and the value of their currencies and bonds thereby supported.
