Dear Friend of GATA and Gold (and Silver):

Gene Arensberg's new "Got Gold Report" for Brien Lundin's Gold Newsletter ( is about natural gas but stresses that so far the "reforms" of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission are serving only to limit long traders, not short ones. Arensberg's report is headlined "Nat Gas Royalty Trusts Benefit from UNG Exodus" and you can find an excerpt from it at Stockhouse here:
