Mike Kosares: The connection between QE and gold

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Mike Kosares of Centennial Precious Metals in Denver compares the chart of the gold price with that of reserve bank credit and finds a glaring anomaly since April's smashing of gold in the futures markets.

Kosares writes: "The gold price, as a result of its recent plunge, has crossed decisively under the reserve bank credit trend line. The two developments together have made for an interesting chart divergence -- the sort of thing that catches the attention of technicians and value investors alike, particularly if it defies logical explanation.

"This latest correction, more than any I can remember, has the experts scratching their heads. When an upward or downward spike in the market proceeds sans logical underpinnings, a snap-back rally or correction often follows. The last such incident in the gold market occurred in 2008. The market sold off roughly 30% at the height of the financial crisis, and then regained and superseded those losses before 90 days had elapsed. From there the market climbed to all-time highs in 2009."

Kosares' commentary is headlined "The Connection Between Quantitative Easing and the Gold Price" and it's posted at Centennial's Internet site,, here:
