It’s Monday, and hallelujah – we not only did we not see a “Sunday Night Sentiment” attack for the first time in 40 weeks – as early attempts were rebuffed at the likely new floor level of $1,300/oz. but no “2:15 AM EST” raid occurred either. Quite shocking and laughably, even the typically fantastic Zero Hedge attributed gold’s strength to “Ukraine fears” – as if the expanding instability in that dark corner of the Earth is “new news.”
So here we are, just days after another Fed “tapering” lie, COMEX options expiration, and the most blatantly fabricated NFP report in U.S. history; and lo and behold, PMs are trading higher. Given their ragingly strong fundamentals, this should surprise no one with even a mild understanding of the reasons for – and mechanisms of gold and silver price suppression. However, what really is puzzling and alarming to the highest order – is the fact that despite increased “tapering” – in our view, a lie to start with particularly given “Belgium’s” sudden Treasury buying surge; is the fact that Treasury yields, amidst a so-called economic “recovery,” have plunged to seven-month lows.
