Deja Vu - Someone Tell The Gold-Manipulating-Machines The Market's Shut

Tyler Durden's picture

Just 3 months ago, as Americans celebrated Memorial Day, the spot price of gold jerked $20 higher (then plunged) as gold futures closed. Today, as Americans celebrate Labor Day, the liquidity-less market for spot gold just dropped $6, ripped back and settled lower in the space of a few minutes (with bids and offers fully crossed for a few minutes) as someone clearly forgot to tell the machines that the market is closed...

Makes perfect sense...

 

as bids and offers crossed...

Unrigged markets for all... because nothing says "Sell Gold into an illiquid market" like NATO preparing to launch an offensive against Russia who 'everyone' now cliams is fully invading Ukraine...
