Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Reviewing last week's market action in an interview with Craig Hemke for Sprott Money News, mining entrepreneur Eric Sprott remarks that the details of Friday's U.S. jobs report were actually not very good. Sprott adds that the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission's fining last week of three European bullion banks for gold and silver market manipulation since 2008 vindicates GATA and others who have complained about such manipulation.

The interview with Sprott is 16 minutes long and can be heard here:
