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.

Can you comment on this? "Did the system collapse"


I am relatively new here (almost a year now), and I've seen this graphic a couple different times. Can you comment on it and explain how this spread can/will/may help "break things", if you will, and help us to finally discover a real market price for phyzz?

Question that puzzled me for a long time

Why inflation expectations in U.S., while Japan after 26 years of trying the same, produce none?

@DrJerome re: Critical Thinking

Hi Doc - thank you for your comments on this subject

As I see it, it all begins with the basics: who, what, where, and when ?

This includes defining our terms. What is meant by "the Russians" ? Rogue hackers or members of the Russian state ? What evidence is there to prove their involvement?

From there we can move on to the 'Why?' (motivation) and the 'How?' (method) and formulate a strategy for responding with our own motivations and capabilities in mind. Every step along the way, we must ask ourselves if our findings pass the 'smell test'. (Example - Why would Assad gas his own people ? It doesn't make sense.)

As far as I can tell, the accusations against the Russian government are based on the fallacy of the Appeal to Authority (our intel agencies say so) and ginning up the emotionalism of those opposed to Trump. They haven't even provided the proof to support their "Russians influenced the election" premise.

Regards, - JW

too much to cover in one comment

Will try to address again in today's podcast.

Re: Hat contest

I hope Craig does these more often. After having to put up with rigged PM games (for years) its a great relief and fun to play a game that's honest !

Yesterday, I asked Chuck Butler(Daily Pfennig) that question

Chuck. Bank of Japan has tried monetary and fiscal stimulus for 26 years, still unable to produce any inflation. What makes Trump ideas so different? Why inflation expectations in America, when Japan failed to create any? You said that we were turning Japanese...Means no inflation in U.S.

Dec 13, 2016 - 11:25am

And here is Chuck's response to my question

There's a major difference between the Japanese consumers and the U.S. consumers. Japanese are savers...U.S. are spenders...and that's where you get the difference in inflation potential.

I agree with your assessment of an "argument from authority." It is more likely to be true if the authority is trustworthy and an expert. For some reason, I do not trust the CIA. If anything, they are experts in propaganda.

Dr J.Cheating at argumentation

Thanks for your response.

I guess we can all be sceptical of the Russian hacking report to be prepared by James Clapper, a known liar who was discovered to have committed perjury when testifying before Congress.

Nick Laird's silver chart

shows the same features that Adrian Douglas found for gold many years ago. It was summarized by selling at the morning fix (10 am London) and buying at the afternoon fix (3 pm London) and showing a huge profit (excluding commissions) over several years.

The same is true for silver, even though it has only one daily fix at noon. His silver chart shows an extreme dip at the 3 pm gold fix, indicating that gold drags silver.
