Hathaway's Tocqueville gold letter gets pretty frank about market rigging


1:05p CT Friday, October 28, 2016

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

John Hathaway's October gold strategy letter for the Tocqueville funds gets pretty frank about manipulation of the gold market by governments and central banks, quoting Zero Hedge and market analyst and financial letter writer Michael Belkin:

"The correction of the past few days coincided with an absence of Chinese buyers due to the 'Golden Week' holiday there. 'With China (by far the largest buyer of physical gold) closed, the markets were open for rampant manipulation, which is exactly what happened as several billion dollars in paper assets were dumped.' (Zero Hedge, October 9, 2016.) As noted in the October 10 Belkin Report, 'Who sells $22 billion of gold for maximum market impact over a very short period? The global monetary cabal (central banks, Bank for International Settlements) have a long history of suppressing gold prices because a rising gold price discredits their legitimacy.'"

Hathaway's letter is posted at the Tocqueville internet site here:
