Why did the Bank of International Settlements just slam the gold price down with a $590m sale?


 -- Published: Sunday, 3 May 2015 | Print  | Disqus 

By Peter Cooper

The manipulation of the gold price by global central banks was particularly blatant on Friday when the Bank of International Settlements orchestrated a $590 million sell order to put prices into reverse again, as brilliantly captured by the ZeroHedge website (click here).

Itís no secret that global central banks are keeping the lid on interest rates to try to stimulate an economic recovery, though they are proving far more effective at the former rather than the latter. But not so many people appreciate that in order to achieve this they also have to artificially manipulate gold prices down.

Inexact science

Obviously this does not always work out. From 2001 to 2011 gold prices shot up from $250 to $1,923 an ounce despite the best efforts of the manipulators to suppress them. But they will always do this if they can see the opportunity to lower inflationary expectations. Silver gets the same rough treatment.

However, on Friday we heard some nonsense about employment claims meaning that interest rates were likely to rise and that was supposedly bad for gold and brought the price down. Rubbish! Just remember that ísomebodyí pulled the strings behind the scene to make this happen and $590 million worth of gold is a huge amount to drop on the market!

Itís also a bargain for the Chinese or whoever decides to pick up gold on a day when the BIS dirty tricks department is busy fixing the market. The more difficult thing to predict is when the central banks might lose control of gold prices again.

Dangerous game

It will happen and when it does the price rises will be unbelievable and if you are not in the market before then you just wonít have the time to catch this once-in-a-generation transfer of wealth.

A bond price collapse might set it off with the central banks distracted and too busy trying to shore up this disaster to deal with gold. The global monetary system is becoming unstable and will soon revert to a more classical order with gold and silver restored as monetary metals but at far higher nominal prices than they fetch today.

After all the BIS itself is one of the only global financial institutions warning of this imminent apocalypse in bond markets (click here).
