Tyler Durden's picture


With the USDollar giving up all the week's gains this morning on the heels of EUR strength (repatriation), weak claims data coupled with import prices sparked a leg higher in gold and leg lower in the yields of bonds on either side of the Atlantic. Gold poked its head above $1320 briefly, having been smacked lower twice overnight. 10Y US Treasury yield is now 2.39%.German 2Y yields traded at -1bp, there lowest in 15 months as 10Y Bunds dropped below 1% for the first time ever. Equity futures are fading back into the red.

Probably. These guys have nothing else to do than dump $1 billion in futures on gold that does not exist anywhere in the world on to the open market.

They'll get by with this for awhile until the BRICS countries ask for contract delivery in REAL gold instead of paper cash.  Gee, how embarassing will that be?

Speaking of gone, we have a new spot price fix for silver, the LSP. Tyler, you should post a thread because we read that they can't/won't be held responsible for their prices!

Monopoly money can do as it wishes and does daily. Fighting it is a lesson in futility.


Stack and forget about it.

Already back to $1314....

Manipulation at its finest... smash before claims to contain the spike and then smash again after the spike now back where we started.

Try as they might, there is only one PM that will carry you through the coming crisis and that is gold.  Get you some!  Much better to be a year early than a minute late.  And the clock is ticking rather loudly at the moment...

German 10yr Bund hit's All-Time Low below 1.00%...then U.S. 10yr at 2.40 doesn't make a lot of sense. US rates going ready to REFI into a 3% 30yr Mtg! Woohoo! Guess the world has arrived at the hand basket.  Bravo, well done.

treasuries hit cycle lows quite a few days ago, in overnight trading.  it just happens that one such kevin henry exists (to the seeming delight of a few primary dealers who are short treasuries) and pushed his buttons between 5-8AM so that cash markets and CNBC, reuters, bloomberg et al presstitutes didn't have to report and drag "markets" lower, if there is such a thing in this corrupt world.

Aug 13 (Reuters) - A federal judicial panel on Wednesday ordered that 18 lawsuits alleging a conspiracy to manipulate gold prices be consolidated into one proceeding in New York. The cases will be sent to U.S. District Judge Valerie Caproni in Manhattan, who has already been overseeing more than two dozen cases.

The lawsuits name the multinational banks that make up the London Gold Market Fixing Ltd, the company operating the global gold price benchmark known as the 'fix'. The century-old gold fix is a standard price for the metal that the banks set twice a day over the telephone. A variety of gold traders claim they were harmed by a scheme to manipulate the fix.

Sending the cases to Caproni of New York appeared to be a relatively easy decision for the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, which considers requests to consolidate related lawsuits in U.S. federal courts.

Only one of the 18 lawsuits was not filed in New York, according to the panel. Bank of Nova Scotia, HSBC, Societe Generale and Barclays make up the London Gold Market Fixing Ltd."

read it...

"The silver-pricing method begun during the reign of Queen Victoria ends today in London as the $5 trillion market shifts to a more transparent process and regulators expand scrutiny of how commodity benchmarks are set.

An electronic, auction-based mechanism will replace a ritualized negotiation among a few traders that’s been in place for 117 years. Silver becomes the first of the precious-metals markets to ditch a daily “fixing” procedure where dealers agree to a price over the telephone. Revamps also are planned this year for fixings in gold, platinum and palladium."

An article mentioning gold and bunds in the same context has my attention ESPECIALLY since just today the frontpage of declares that the gold rush is over.

Handelsblatt claims the Asian buying interest has supposedly gone down 50%.

Nevermind the stats they claim they have which are just as bogus as all the other stats. The miners don't seem to have a problem getting rid of the metal. Miners shares have been on a steady incline for a while now.

Gold is being talked down and Handelsblatt is obviously trying to discourage German gold holders and potential gold buyers from increasing their positions, maybe even encouraging them to give up some of their stash.

They shouldn't have said anything. This is bullish for gold imo as all gold related information from the financial press is using reverse psychology.
