Today Gold dropped $27.70 down to support at the $885 – $890 levels. We need to ask ourselves why? I would like to propose that we are absolutely being “Scammed by Uncle Sam!”. Let me explain… Again today Gold Lease Rates (1 month) are negative. “So what’s the  big deal about that?” you are asking. The big deal is this, when the lease rate is negative it means that someone will actually pay you a fee in addition to giving a Gold loan. Now you or I or anybody with a sane mind is not going to make a loan to you for a fee (they have to pay), to borrow Gold from them. This doesn’t even count the risk of never being repaid and losing the Gold! However, (and you can read more detail in today’s first article); this provides a way for someone to supress Gold prices if they wanted to, and you guessed who – “Scammed Again By Uncle Sam”. While the first article today explains “the how”, I am going to venture the “why”. Right now if you pay attention to what is going on, the U.S. and the Fed desperately need to appease some large holders of our debt and dollars by making a way for them to convert their dollar holdings into Gold. They also realize that their current (US) monetary policies are going to force Precious metals prices (especially Gold) much higher than today’s $1000 level while at the same time deteriorating the value of the U.S. dollar. By supressing the price of Gold temporarily the Fed and Treasury will benefit as follows. First as the foreign holders sell off their Treasuries and Bonds this creates a demand for U.S. Dollars to fulfill the transactions. This in turn brings those Dollars back into our economy helping to create more liquidity. Now depending on the velocity of money, that can be in itself inflationary. However with the velocity of money being dependent on Capital Investment, what are we currently seeing? Right now there is no real demand for new goods and services, which means that there is no real incentive to invest in New Factories, Expanding current production levels, or even opening new businesses. So then what happens? The holders instead of sitting on their dollars look for safe places to park those dollars until the economy turns around again. Where do they park the money, banks have proven to be risky?, the stock market? even riskier still, so they park their money in a “safe haven”, buying up Treasuries and Bonds. This helps to offest the selling pressure on Treasuries caused from the original U.S. Debt holder’s sales, and it also creates further demand for U.S. Dollars. With the unprecendented spending currently going on by Mr. Obama and cohorts, the Fed and the Treasury needs to create an increased demand for all of the new Debt Issuances coming into the market. ( They are also creating further false demand buy buying up their own new debt  (300 Billion purchase just announced today). In my mind these purchase in the long term will also create more inflation. So currently the U.S. government has every reason to keep trying to artificially depress the Gold Prices. Sooner or later however their Gold price manipulation will explode in their faces as already seen in a smaller degree,  the demand for Gold is snatching up all of the physical gold being dumped. That is why we will bounce off of these price levels for the fourth time. When it breaks and when inflation (already here- currently running 8% to 15%) is officially acknowledged,watch out Gold will shoot up like the latest Space shuttle launch! Use this limited time frame to keep adding to and accumulating your long positions in Precious Metals- Good Investing! – jschulmansr

 Gold Price Manipulation More Blatant- Numismaster.com

By: Patrick A. Heller of Numismater.com

On Friday, March 6, gold lease rates turned negative for the day. What that means is that anyone who wanted to lease gold would actually be paid a fee in addition to getting a free gold loan.
No sane person would choose to lose money loaning physical gold, in addition to the risk of never getting the gold back from the other party. However, if someone (such as the U.S. government) wanted to suppress the price of gold, this is one tactic to try to accomplish that purpose.
I can come to no other conclusion than that a large quantity of physical gold surreptitiously appeared on the market on March 6 with the sole purpose to drive down the price of gold. The quantities were large enough that they almost certainly could not come from private parties. With most of the world’s central banks now being net buyers of gold reserves, they would not be the source of this gold. By process of elimination, the suspicion falls upon the U.S. government as the ultimate party responsible for this blatant action to manipulate the price of gold.

Of course, the U.S. government would not want to be identified as the cause of this leasing anomaly. Instead, such manipulation was almost certainly conducted by multiple trading partners of the U.S. government.

This sledge hammer tactic worked at driving the price of gold further away from the $1,000 level – at least temporarily. Last week, spokesmen for a number of troubled U.S. companies were suddenly issuing statements about a return to profitability (such as Citigroup and JPMorgan Chase) or not needing further government bailouts (such as General Motors). Stock values climbed as gold’s price retreated.

But (and there was always a but), these massive efforts to suppress the price of gold seem to be running out of steam. First off, these “positive statements” had serious qualifiers such as the chairman of Citigroup claiming that, ignoring extraordinary items like bad loans, the bank earned an operating income in the first two months of 2009.

Then insurance company AIG bowed to pressure and revealed that a huge portion of the $150+ billion in bailout funds it had received had really been passed along as bailout money to other companies (including Citigroup and JPMorgan Chase). In fact, almost all of this money was redirected to the U.S. government’s trading partners who probably have been complicit in the manipulation of the gold price.

Once the public learned that such companies have received more federal government bailout money that previously revealed, the stock market rally stalled. The price of gold started to recover. Unless the U.S. government can come up with another tactic quickly, I expect the price of gold to generally rise over time.

In the meantime, demand for physical gold has taken off again. The U.S. Mint is so far behind at meeting demand for bullion gold and silver American Eagle issues that it last week announced an indefinite suspension of plans to strike 2009-dated proof and uncirculated versions for collectors. Even further, the U.S. Mint also announced that it would not even accept orders from primary distributors for any gold or silver Eagles this week.

On the wholesale market, supplies of gold and silver American Eagles quickly disappeared. The premiums of these coins shot upward. Some retailers now have to decline orders as they don’t know when they might be able to fill them or what premiums they will have to pay to acquire merchandise. My earlier prediction that by the end of April it would become almost impossible to find any physical gold or silver bullion-priced items for reasonable delivery is starting to come true.

At the American Numismatic Association’s National Money Show in Portland, Ore., this past weekend, demand for U.S. gold $10s and $20s was still solid. With some such collector coins now trading at all-time high prices, however, some dealers are advising their customers to consider selling or swapping for gold bullion. As a consequence, I think most of the surge in prices has already occurred. It might be a good time to take a profit.

 

 

 

In what appeared to be just an afterthought, relegated to the third paragraph after occupying the top spot for years, the Fed also announced that short-term interest rates will be left at the freakishly low level of between zero and 0.25 percent and that they won’t be going up anytime soon.

And if this doesn’t work, we might just see the Fed’s balance sheet hit that $10 trillion level that someone mentioned the other day.
