“Dear Extended Family,
Not one pro, not even Yra who is close to the establishment, believes that the action of all markets were a true price interpretation of the FOMC notes yesterday.
Today and yesterday was the product of five gold banks showing the market who in their opinion is boss. It was aimed directly at the confidence in gold.
These gold bank traders are legends, who are the present rulers of the universe, owners of Washington and answer to no one, even to a God. Well, in their mind they are at least.
I really think ego has overcome the profit motive in the last two days. This changes nothing as to where gold is going in 2012 and beyond. It just makes trading impossible and charts useless, leaving only international fundamentals that will not be MOPEd away to make the final determination of the gold price.
It coils the spring in the market even tighter than physics will allow, making the break out to the upside when it comes something to behold.
If there is only one lesson you take away from here, it is that margin is a death wish when the head trader at one major gold bank can command the short term action of the gold and silver market. Consider what can happen to gold when 5% of today’s investors wake up to the economic and statistical charade the markets are today.
