The Hows and Whys of Gold Price Manipulation

by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts and Dave Kranzler,

The deregulation of the financial system during the Clinton and George W. Bush regimes had the predictable result: financial concentration and reckless behavior. A handful of banks grew so large that financial authorities declared them “too big to fail.” Removed from market discipline, the banks became wards of the government requiring massive creation of new money by the Federal Reserve in order to support through the policy of Quantitative Easing the prices of financial instruments on the banks’ balance sheets and in order to finance at low interest rates trillion dollar federal budget deficits associated with the long recession caused by the financial crisis.

The Fed’s policy of monetizing one trillion dollars of bonds annually put pressure on the US dollar, the value of which declined in terms of gold. When gold hit $1,900 per ounce in 2011, the Federal Reserve realized that $2,000 per ounce could have a psychological impact that would spread into the dollar’s exchange rate with other currencies, resulting in a run on the dollar as both foreign and domestic holders sold dollars to avoid the fall in value.

    Everything is manipulated.

    What you want is people whom have figured out
    the manipulation and can teach you how to trade.

    Manipulation is an excuse for bad market calls.

    If you take money from the manipulators, they
    cannot manipulate.

    Deal with reality. Beat them at their own game.

    These gurus don’t know how to trade and are costing
    you money.

    Instead you listen to them tell you want you
    want to hear, no matter how much money you lose.

    The gurus make money and you lose.

    If alternative media gurus could make money
    they would be showing you their actual trading statements.


    Only Jim Rogers has proved himself.

    Frank I don’t disagree with your point but there is a possibility that this is a Intelligence Style operation where they promote gold to the common man promising $5000 gold then the market crashes because of manipulation as they know it would then the faction of powerful people who own gold and are not insiders on the Fed Banking system rally the common man that lost in gold against the their enemies the powerful paper Banksters who crashed gold. Ten years ago could you imagine the common man giving a shit about manipulation in gold?
