Silver Manipulation In Detail

Tue, Dec 13, 2016 - 10:12am

Nick Laird and his service, GoldCharts 'R' Us, has long been an ally in the battle against Bank precious metals manipulation. In light if the recent revelations from Deutschebank, Nick has compiled some of the data into charts that you simply MUST take the time to review.

Nick's tremendous service can be found at his website: He has a subscription component that helps him to pay the bills but he also churns out free information and charts on a regular basis. It is his latest public post that caught our attention when we found it linked to the GATA website earlier today.

I'm not going to reprint the entire thing here for two reasons. One, I haven't asked Nick for permission and, two, I'd rather you visit his site directly to see the charts. He's running a business, too, and if this sort of information is your bag, then you should be sure to consider a subscription while you're there.

The direct link to this tremendous dose of information is here:

Be sure to take time to review the very first chart on the page. Note the timeline of the manipulation and transcripts attached to all of the text and email messages between the conspirators.

For the sake of the discussion here, I am going to borrow just one of Nick's charts and it's posted below. In TFMR parlance, we have long described the almost-daily, early morning precious metals selloff as the work of "The London Monkeys". It's a cute name for a sinister group of Bullion Bank traders that work to lower the price of both precious metals into their daily London fixes. Well now, thanks to Nick, we have quantitative proof of this daily manipulation. (click to enlarge)


Again, please be sure to review all of the charts the Nick has provided. Though the denials persist and the stench of The Cartel Apologists is thick, Truth is finally beginning to see the light of day. We've maintained for years that any structure built upon a foundation of lies, fraud and deceit cannot last. With more revelations, lawsuits and investigations to come, you can be certain that Truth is going to prevail. All of us in this community on the right side of history and we will be the victors in this battle against the destructive and criminal Banks.

1.5M Gold Heist

Seems like a lot of trouble for a measly 1.5 Meg. Six cars involved. Broad daylight and you have to torch a vehicle on the way out. I think this is very bullish. Looks like a professional job and nobody has yet to blame it on Putin or the Muslim's. The LBMA must be running on fumes...

Today's Silver Miner Action

Interesting action in some of the silver mining stocks today. GPL was up 1.3% with volume of 3.99 million shares traded. USAPF was up 15% with volume of 388,229 shared traded. EXLLF was up 13% with volume of 25,828 shares traded. The FED minutes are less than 24 hours away and often our mining stocks are pounded lower leading up to the almighty FED announcement. Hope the news is bullish for the metals!!!

agree with him or not, a must read:

this is the issue the metals community has been grappling with for a decade now...I don't see how it cannot come to a head very shortly...bwdik

side: this is also why I moved completely out of goldmoney into real coins, GM prices metal at (futures paper contracts) "spot", regardless of manipulation or what premiums do on real coins. You could hold metal and ride spot down, and if you ever tried to convert to real coins, you might find yourself "losing" 50% due to premiums. I asked them a question asking how they would "price" holdings of metal if paper spot pricing disconnected from real physical metal, and never heard back. Closed my account thereafter. Don't take my word for any of this, just look at what happened last year to silver coins when there was a shortage, and how you would/could have moved from offshore GM "silver" into coins here while premiums soared, you'd have lost nearly 20% and this wasn't a huge panic even...just a small blip on the grand schemes of things.

Currently Stagflation is ruling

If the markets go against the prevailing themes being presented today, and the bond market collapses completely while the SM is backflipping onto the bonfire of the vanities, the next move will be QE on an even grander scale. We could see hyper-stagflation take hold and then the fun begins.

Always appreciate your thoughts, @SiM. You have the conviction of youth, and I always find that both refreshing and amusing. I imagine @brokerk22 is perhaps an old fogey like me, and is evidently a little less amused than I. You see, us old coots have come to realize that most of our convictions were, ahem, somewhat naive.

In your case though, I think you are brighter than most of us were at your age. I happen to agree with you, that Europe and Japan are much more vulnerable than the US is. Factors you may not be considering:

1) if (when) Europe and then Japan start to melt down, it seems likely to me we'll see a preliminary melt down in US equities as well, then a very big rebound as you suggest.

2) if (when) capital flows out of Europe and Japan into the US (what about China?), then I would expect that even a little bit of that capital escaping to monetary metals should suffice to keep the spot price for Au & Ag keeping pace with the POSX.

3) as Jim Rickards has been on about, the US will be losing its veto over the IMF, and if the rest of the world starts collapsing, I would anticipate the shift to the SDR will be greatly accelerated.

4) when the SHTF as you (and most all of us here) anticipate, who is going to want to lend money to anyone? The implications for the bond market, and hence the dollar, along with the inevitable cascade of consequences are impossible to fathom.

So, don't take @brokerk22's response as disparaging, but don't discount it either.

By the by, how's it going for you in the centennial state? Prosperously, I hope!

I think you are failing to take into account the rising interest rate scenario. The 10-year rate has risen more than 50% since mid-September!!! Mortgages, car loans and student debt are about to be ravaged.

Trillions of dollars are being lost in the bond markets (globally), and the impact on the [interest rate based] derivatives has to be multiples of that! These losses will bubble to the surface at some point, and the carnage will be of "biblical proportions".

This will be the most terrifying event of our lifetimes -- unless, of course, we get into a nuclear war . . .

On second thought, at least a nuclear war will end our misery quickly!

You dont know shit. It could blow tomorrow or 3 years from tomorrow. Logic dictates that it should be sooner rather than later because confidence in the system is dying fast. You sold some silver 22 months ago and it is same price today. Congratulations you are a genius. When it comes it will be like a thief in the night.
