GATA makes more trouble at the NY Fed


11:55p EDT Wednesday, June 7, 2000

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

This commentary by Clive Roffey at the Moneyweb
Internet site is interesting for its acceptance
of GATA's contention that the price of gold is
being manipulated. It's all the more interesting
for its suggestion that the manipulators are
losing control.

Please post this as seems useful.

Deutsche Bank, along with some help from Goldman Sachs,
bashed gold early today, taking it down almost $6, but
the funds came in as buyers, taking it back up late in
the day. August gold finished at $290, down only $1.80.

Good ol' $290 again. That is the price the manipulators
have been defending for a couple of years now. They are

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The enigmatic guru of www.USAGold.com, Friend of
Another, lately known as Trail Guide, has much to say
about GATA in his latest dispatch, which I've appended
here. FOA/Trail Guide has a different perspective on
the gold market, but he is fully in the gold camp and
his comments here are recognition of the growing
importance of GATA's work -- for which we thank him.

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The word is getting out about the manipulation of the
price of gold and part of its purpose: to protect the
financial institutions that sold gold borrowed from
central banks, and to protect the central banks that
lent so much. So much gold has been sold short that
it cannot be recovered without exploding the price,
threatening the solvency of the participants in the

An astute member of www.LeMetropoleCafe.com, Ian Brain

Today the Dallas Morning News published the first
full story about the Gold Anti-Trust Action
Committee that has appeared in the mainstream U.S.
press in the 15 months since GATA began.

It is fair and balanced, though, for the life of me,
I cannot understand where John Hathaway of the
