Mark O'Byrne: Market manipulation explains gold price plunge amid soaring demand


9:50a ET Thursday, August 15, 2013

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

In his daily commentary today at GoldCore, Mark O'Byrne contrasts the recent plunge in the gold price with the explosion in metal demand and explains the paradox this way:

"All available data shows very strong supply-and-demand fundamentals and yet a huge, historic 35 percent price fall in the quarter. This lends credence to the allegations of market manipulation put forward by the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee, whistleblower Andrew Maguire, Max Keiser, Zero Hedge, and many others in the blogosphere."
