Gold Plunges Back Below $1300 As "Someone" Dumps $2.3 Billion In Futures

Tyler Durden's picture

With The Fed proclaiming bubbles in some of the most-loved segments of the stock market and explaining that the economy is doing "ok" but they must remain dovish for longer for feasr of "false dawns"... what better time than now to dump $2.3 Billion notional in futures... of course the dump in gold's anti-status quo price coincided with an odd v-shaped recovery in stocks... Gold remains above its pre-June FOMC levels still.


The break was precipitated by the sale of over 17,000 contracts (or over $2.3 Billion notional)...


But for now gold remains above FOMC levels...

is there anyone left out there who actually fails to see the rigging at this point?  paid liars are one thing...  but real people should all be able to see that the world is run by criminals by now.  from that standpoint, these PM hammerings have useful events...  shining a light on how the world is controlled from the shadows.

Another case of panic selling. This is one of the reasons financial advisors always recommend that you stay away from risky commodities, especially those without industrial utilizes like gold. Trading commodities is very difficult and takes years of experience and training to grasp. Personally, I'm happy to leave the commodities for professional traders at established firms such as JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Chevron and BP. Buy-and-hold equity investing is the only strategy that is proven to work over the long term.

That is if the coin dealers are still allowed to operate.  Fellow serfs I give you our government's Operation Chokepoint.

Crooked banks with the Fed as a client.

Gee, I wonder why there are no margin hikes anymore.

The Hunt brothers did the same in reverse with silver except they did it legally and had the money good collateral and the physical to back everything up.

Of course, they were swindled out of their legitimate cornering of the market by the Crimex and the Fed.

From the article:

"FDIC has labeled around 30 industries, including gun and ammunition dealers, as “high-risk.” Coin dealing, payday lending, and adult entertainment are also considered “high-risk.”

Coin dealing and guns thrown in with adult enterainment and payloans.  From an agency that does have enough to cover the the bank accounts it's supposed to cover.  The FDIC is high risk.

Actually, the CME Group lowered margins last Friday.

No need for high margins when the client can print all the Benjamins in the world.

That's just not possible.  Jim Sinclair and King World News said so.

who has 2,300,000,000$ to plunk down on one trade like its nothing?


talk about manipulation.

So glad we have this one unrigged market, because they might rig forex and LIBOR and even the SPY, but they sure as hell don't mess with gold. It's the one place to be.

And just when john39 mentiones paid liars, up comes MDB. Now what could that mean?

That's some funny shit there. It's like a very dry version of The Onion.

Btw, drops like these mean nothing, other than to make phyzz cheaper. But a 50 cent drop is comical compared to the jumps we'll see next year

Are you mentally retarded, or are you just really good at acting like you are?

I don't have time to read random links from the internet. Gold is used to make Jewelry, and that's about it. Unfortunately jewelry demand has been falling like a rock in recent years.

DaddyO's picture

But you have time to troll down and try and refute his link?

Oh, and the computer you typed you trollish response has how much gold in it?


IridiumRebel's picture

I see your gold manipulation and raise you a new thick stacking opportunity. Go buy your lady a nice tennis bracelet. It's on sale.


Rerally - jewellry demand has been falling.

Oh, gosh, someone tell all of the folks in India and China that their buying has not been factored into your lofty pronouncements of market saavy.

That million dollar bonus is fucking light years away from your grasp at this point.

Even Jim Kramer is a better financial seer than you, Bonus Dawg.

Milliondollar...without people like you, there wouldn't be these wonderful discount prices, and I wouldn't be able to accumulate as much. Thank you brother!


Do you detail cars, or clean windows? I'll return the favor and offer you a job someday.




The only one better at sarcasm you believe in yourself - is Sarah Palin.  

You two would be great together - i know some people, so I'll see what I can do to get your sorry airbrushed ass on network TV with moose meat mom.

See you when 2000 becomes the new 17000 topper bull market in paper shite.  

Meelion Dollar Boner - the new market tell "hard" at work.

What's next for sheeple predictions as Rome burns  - paper to to 25000 ?

Anyone who´s been around here for awhile knows that it´s option # 3.  In fact I suspect MDB is a second knick of one of our most informed and respected bloggers.

Gold is still money...and ALL commodities are getting slammed.

Oil is still hanging in there...BARELY in my view.

Steve Liesman, obviously. Though he may be huffing paint by now in order to remain that stupid.

Huffing Post has that exchange between Rick and LIES-allLIES-man!  They are saying Liesman was vindicated in that exchange.  Ugggggg......

spekulatn's picture

The HPost and Liesman are on the same team.  No surprise they come to the pudge's defense. Its laughable and cryable at the same time.

Well, Doug Casey says all this gold-rigging talk is nonsense.

Generally, I like Casey, but when I hear him do his whiney 'eeeooorrr, theeease Gooold manipulation meeeeemes, there just riDIculous', I want to throw something at the screen.

Why won't the fucker have a perusal of GATA's webiste? I guess he just doesn't want to know.

Jack Sheet's picture

Simple. Casey sells two metals mining stock newsletters in which the recommended companies have made big losses since 2011.If he were to represent that gold and silver are manipulated to the downside, even more subscribers would cancel.

Whalley World's picture

Casey should go back to Argentina and stay there.  I was a subsciber and took a beating with his gold juniors.  He has an agenda for saying there is no manipulation when the evidence is well, evident.

Fuh Querada's picture

The biggest joke was Jeff Clark, Editor of "Big Gold" saying that your total metals position including miners should not be more than 10% of investible assets!

Kirk2NCC1701's picture

Ever heard of "Rewards dictate behaviors"?  Regardless of whether you have or haven't...

Anticipate and Plan accordingly, when it comes to salesmen of all types and ilk.

chubbar's picture

Apparently Doug Casey doesn't feel this market is manipulated. How he comes to that conclusion after watching this price action is anyone's guess. I personally think he staked out this position back when it was not very apparent and now he has his balls in the way so he won't back down. I can even understand that perhaps some large bullion banks are doing this for the purposes of whipsawing investors in and out of positions. Either way, it's manipulation and if the CFTC doesn't act it is because it is a sanctioned activity which in fact makes it gov't manipulation.

Yes, Keith Weiner of Monetary Metals. What a schmuck!

I wonder, what is the current price real gold for someone trying to buy a significant amount...  doubt its published, but i suspect not the same price as on that chart...

Yep John, Doug Casey apparently is one
