More great research by Incrementum -- and all beside the point

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Liechtenstein-based investment fund Incrementum's annual "In Gold We Trust" report, compiled by Ronald-Peter Stoeferle and Mark J. Valek, was published this week and again described the reasons for gold's glorious prospects. Among them:

-- Loss of trust in international relations and everyday society amid ever-more-polarized politics.

-- Gold's generally good performance in most currencies apart from the U.S. dollar.

Buy metals at GoldMoney and enjoy international storage

GoldMoney was established in 2001 by James and Geoff Turk and is safeguarding more than $1.7 billion in metals and currencies. Buy gold, silver, platinum, and palladium from GoldMoney over the Internet and store them in vaults in Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, ­taking advantage of GoldMoney's low storage rates, among the most competitive in the industry. GoldMoney also offers delivery of 100-gram and 1-kilogram gold bars and 1-kilogram silver bars. To learn more, please visit:

-- Increasing purchases by central banks.

But while the report mentions past currency market interventions by governments and central banks that have affected asset prices, there doesn't seem to be anything in the report explaining why, despite the longstanding supportive fundamentals, gold has yet to realize its glorious prospects -- why gold's future never comes.

For example, there doesn't seem to be anything in the report about the constant and surreptitious gold trading by the Bank for International Settlements on behalf of its member central banks, the discounts given to governments and central banks by CME Group for surreptitiously trading all major futures contracts in the United States, or the refusal of the U.S. Federal Reserve and Treasury Department to answer a congressman's questions about which markets they are surreptitiously trading in and why.

All these developments have been extensively reported by GATA over the past year. It would seem hard for any gold market analyst to overlook them.

So while the Incrementum report is full of great research, analysis, and charts, it offers little insight about the thing that matters most: gold's price and its primary determinant, intervention in the gold market by central banks, as lately summarized by GATA here:

When even gold's scholars and mining companies are indifferent to the primary determinant of the monetary metal's price, gold's great future can seem only more distant.
