GATA - Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee
Manchester, Conn.

The Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee was organized in January 1999 to advocate and undertake litigation against illegal collusion to control the price and supply of gold and related financial securities. The committee arose from essays by Bill Murphy, a financial commentator, and by Chris Powell, a newspaper editor in Connecticut, published at Murphy’s Internet site, www.lemetropolecafe.com.

GATA - Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee is not verified as a 501(c)3 organization.

JPMorgan Chase & Co.'s failure to properly inform some rich clients about conflicts of interest has resulted in a record $30 million whistle-blower award by U.S. futures regulators.

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission will pay out that amount for tips received in the case, in which the bank didn't properly disclose that it was steering asset-management customers into investments that would be profitable for the bank, according to a person familiar with the matter.

JPMorgan agreed in December 2015 to pay a record $367 million asset-management settlement. That included $100 million that went to the CFTC, described as a $40 million monetary penalty and $60 million in disgorgement. The bank agreed to pay the SEC an additional $267 million. ...

We Are Amid the Biggest Financial Bubble in History;
When It Bursts, Bullion Owned in the Safest Way Will Protect Wealth

With GoldCore you can own allocated -- and most importantly -- segregated coins and bars in Switzerland, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

Switzerland, Singapore, and Hong Kong remain extremely safe jurisdictions for storing bullion. Avoid exchange-traded funds and digital gold providers where you are a price taker. Ensure that you are outright legal owner of your bullion. If you do not own segregated bullion that you can visit, inspect, and take delivery of, you are exposed.

Crucial guides to storage in Singapore and Switzerland can be read here:

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Interviewed this week by Mike Gleason of Money Metals Exchange, your secretary/treasurer explained why most monetary metals mining companies are too scared to protest government's suppression of the price of their products. That is, the industry is too vulnerable to government regulation and utterly dependent for financing by the major investment banks that are formally government agents.

Mainstream financial news organizations, your secretary/treasurer adds, won't report the market rigging because governments consider it a national security issue.

But, he continues, the documentation of this market rigging is all over the place, including the internet site of the Bank for International Settlements, the broker for central bank intervention in the gold market.

The interview is 20 minutes long and can be heard and read at the Money Metals Exchange internet site here:

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

GATA board member Ed Steer, editor of Ed Steer's Gold and Silver Digest letter, was interviewed yesterday financial writer Dennis Miller and argued that manipulation of the monetary metals markets should not automatically deter investors.

"All price-management schemes come to an end sooner or later," Steer said, "either by the law of supply and demand or those who are managing the prices voluntarily back away from being the short sellers of first and last resort in the COMEX futures market.

"This market management has been going on for a couple of generations and is getting very long in the tooth, as it is now common knowledge that precious metal prices are being actively suppressed. It is certainly widely known in the precious metal arena, both by the producers themselves and the current crop of investors.

"Even nation states are wise to it all, as Russia and China have known about this for over a decade now and have been increasing their gold and now silver reserves at a blistering pace. If they’re doing it, so should you."

The Federal Reserve added $11 billion to its System Open Market Account account for the week ending yesterday. It purchased $11 billion in mortgage securities directly from banks.

This injects $11 billion into the banking system. Cash is "high-powered" money -- it can be leveraged 10 times (banks need to hold 10 percent in reserves against "high-powered" money. Eleven billion dollars is $110 billion of leverage for the banks to use for activities such as propping up the stock market.

This certainly explains why there appears to be another "V" recovery in the stock market after a near-10-percent drawdown in the Dow and the SPX. This is very similar to the 10-percent market plunges in August 2015 and January 2016, both of which were followed with highly unusual "V" recoveries. ...

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Silver market rigging whistleblower Ted Butler today lays out the overwhelming evidence that a single entity long has been rigging the silver market, and then raises the question of why the market regulatory agencies do nothing about it.

Here's a possible answer: Regulators ignore the market rigging because the entity doing it is acting as agent for the U.S. government, which is fully authorized by federal law, the Gold Reserve Act of 1934 as amended in the 1970s, to intervene secretly in and to rig any market in the world:

https://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/international/ESF/Pages/esf-ind...

Indeed, at a hearing in November 2001 in U.S. District Court in Boston in GATA's federal lawsuit against the U.S. government and the Bank for International Settlements, a lawyer for the government essentially conceded as much:

Under HB 449, all gains and losses upon the sale of physical precious metals that are reported on a taxpayer's federal income tax return would be removed from the calculation of the taxpayer's Idaho taxable income.
