Who Leaked The FOMC Statement To Gold Traders?

Tyler Durden's picture

Beginning 3 minutes before the release of the FOMC Statement, gold spot and futures prices began to rise notably. We noted this accordingly.

Bonds did not. Stocks did not. FX did not. Around 4300 contracts changed hands in the Dec Futures - massively more than average volume - before the statement came out and drove prices further up. In those 3 minutes Gold prices jumped $11... so the question is - lucky guess... or which big bullion bank got the nod?
