Market-manipulation mutterings intensify

Gold bug Russell adds voice to idea of Wall Street-Washington plot

"Dennis Slothower of Stealth Stocks Daily Alert has always been shockingly explicit about manipulation in the markets.

On Wednesday night Slothower wrote: “The iShares Silver Trust ETF SLV -3.30%  fell another $2.31 today. I can’t stress enough how investors were set up here ... Remember what the media present as the most obvious thing to do is really what J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. JPM -0.62%  and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. GS -0.55%  want you, the public, to do. And last month, crushing the dollar and forcing investors to buy gold and silver at the top of the market gave the primary dealers plenty of liquidity to sell their gold and silver positions into the top of the cycle.”"
