Pacific Group's Bill Kaye: Gold plunge was an operation by Fed, big banks
2:23p ET Saturday, May 11, 2013
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
April's abrupt plunge in the gold price was an operation of the Federal Reserve and major banks to protect the Fed's "quantitative easing" and paper gold shorts that can't deliver the metal they have sold, Pacific Group founder and fund manager William S. Kaye writes in the May market letter of Pacific Group's Greater Asian Hedge Fund.
Kaye, who in January announced his fund's commitment to a major purchase of gold --
-- adds that gold exchange-traded funds are being used to manipulate the gold price and essentially are being looted by the banks that are short the metal. He expects paper gold to default this year and the gold price to be reset upward.
By Pacific Group's kind permission, Kaye's letter is posted at GATA's Internet site here:

from the Sprott Precious Metals Round Table
Now you don't have to travel to attend a financial conference to hear Sprott Asset Management's precious metals experts -- Eric Sprott, Rick Rule, and John Embry. They held a round-table discussion on February 12 and you can watch it on the Internet. Among their topics:
-- Why are precious metals such a compelling investment opportunity?
-- Why are non-G7 central banks buying gold? Do Western central banks have any left?
-- Why are investors buying as much silver as gold in dollar terms? What does this mean for the price of silver?
-- Is the growing supply deficit of platinum and palladium going to push their prices higher?
