Fed Unleashes Gold

by Adam Hamilton, Gold Seek:

The Federal Reserve shocked the financial world this week, defying universal expectations. It failed to start reducing the pace of its third quantitative-easing campaign’s debt monetizations, delaying the long-anticipated QE3 taper indefinitely. This surprise ignited sharp moves in nearly all major markets, but gold’s was certainly the most impressive. It rocketed higher on the Fed’s startling new paradigm shift.

All year long, gold has been plagued by fears of the Fed tapering QE3. Starting with the January 3rd release of the minutes from the December FOMC meeting (where QE3 was more than doubled to include direct Treasury monetizations), QE3-tapering fears have dominated the gold markets.

    Adam must be a young fellow.
    Whose inflation is he assuming will rise? Not the Gov’t-Fed’s data re inflation.

    He seems oblivious to the naked shorting of gold and only sees lack of inflation as the dump driver. This is not reality. Gold was hit by the Fed and JPM and GS….

    Until this group is revealed for what they are, we shall sit in neutral re price.
    Unless, of course, the Chinese get pissed, the BRIC’s get aggressive and the Ruskies get tough on these crooks! These countries balance sheets have lots of gold that is being trashed by the US Banksters behind USD hegemony (so far).
