“Help your enemies underestimate your capabilities”. This is what Sun Tzu, the Chinese general, wrote in the famous military strategy book The Art of War.
This military strategy is perfectly applicable today to the gold market. The Western press and pundits for the current financial status quo are doing all they can to divert investors from physical gold and make them underestimate gold (this only works in Western nations and not at a Central Banks level since they all own physical gold and are net buyer for a few years).
Two tactics are being used to implement that strategy: Publishing articles where the explosion of global physical demand is never mentioned and direct manipulation of precious metals spot prices by financial engineering, notably on the COMEX, through massive selloffs of futures at the most illiquid times of the market.
