Dave Kranzler: Why is the BIS flooding the system with gold?
7:32p ET Monday, September 18, 2017
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
Gold swaps by the Bank for International Settlements, Dave Kranzler of Investment Dynamics writes today, correlate inversely with the gold price.

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:
The BIS actually advertises to prospective central bank members that its services include surreptitious interventions in the gold market --
-- and the head of the BIS' monetary and economic department, William R. White, told a BIS conference in 2005 that a primary purpose of central bank cooperation is "the provision of international credits and joint efforts to influence asset prices (especially gold and foreign exchange) in circumstances where this might be thought useful":
