GATA - Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee
Manchester, Conn.
givvers: jason

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.

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Gold market analyst Bron Suchecki of the Perth Mint today notes the seeming discrepancies around the recent repatriations of German and Dutch gold reserves from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and concludes that the discrepancies may be best explained by unannounced gold swaps.

Indeed, in 2009 a member of the Board of Governors of the U.S. Federal Reserve confirmed to GATA that the Fed has secret gold swap arrangements with foreign banks:

http://www.gata.org/node/7819

Why should central bank gold transactions be so secretive and mysterious? Is it to prevent Doug Casey from realizing that central banks are a little more relevant to the markets than he thinks? Is it to avoid hurting the feelings of CPM Group's Jeff Christian, who portrays himself as a consultant to most central banks and affects that he knows everything they do with gold? Or might it be because disclosure of gold transactions by central banks would impair their surreptitious market interventions and manipulations, as the secret March 1999 report of the staff of the International Monetary Fund concluded?:

Suchecki's detective work is headlined "Repatriation Update" and is posted at his Internet site, Gold Chat, here:

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

GATA consultant Ronan Manly today begins publishing his study of the gold depositories of the International Monetary Fund, noting that the IMF does not have its own depositories but rather uses the vaults of its member central banks in the United States, United Kingdom, France, and India.

Seven years ago your secretary/treasurer tried to get the IMF to explain whether the gold contributed to it by its members was still counted within its members' reserves -- that is, whether the gold was being counted twice -- whether the gold was allocated or unallocated in the vaults of the depository central banks, and whether the gold was ever swapped or leased. The IMF's responses were evasive:

The first part of Manly's study is headlined "The IMF's Gold Depositories -- Part 1, the Legal Background" and it's posted at Bullion Star here:

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

"Quantitative easing," GoldMoney research director Alasdair Macleod writes today, "transfers wealth from savers to financial speculators and other early receivers of the new money. Somehow, the impoverishment of the working and saving masses for the benefit of the central bankers' chosen few is meant to be good for the economy."

And now that "QE" is being internationalized through competitive devaluations, Macleod adds, gold demand is likely to rise in the advanced Western economies, even as demand lately has been high in Asia.

Macleod's commentary is headlined "More Euro-Tragedy" and it's posted at GoldMoney here:

As I wrote last time on data from the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE), in Week 2 of 2015 withdrawals from the vaults of the SGE (which equal Chinese wholesale demand) came in extremely high at 70 tonnes, the third highest amount ever. But in Week 3 (January 19–23) the Chinese withdrew even more at 71 tonnes, up 0.89 percent week over week, and the third highest amount ever. Year to date 202 tonnes have been withdrawn from the SGE vaults, up 15 percent year over year. Like last week, this was happening while the price of gold was rising sharply -- staggering numbers. ...

Direct Ownership and Storage of Precious Metals
Outside the Banking System in Zurich and Singapore

Goldbroker.com is a precious metals investment company that enables investors to own and store gold directly in their own name (no mutualized ownership) in Zurich and Singapore.

Goldbroker's clients are not exposed to any counterparty risks. They own gold and silver in their own names (the ownership certificate cites the name of the investor and serial number of his bars) and they have storage accounts opened in their own name as well. So Goldbroker.com's storage partner knows the exact identity of each investor. Goldbroker.com doesn't store in the name of its clients; rather, Goldbroker's clients store personally. All investors have direct access to their gold and silver bars.

Goldbroker.com was launched in 2011 so that investors would avoid any counterparty risk when investing in physical gold and silver.

Goldbroker.com is listed among GATA's recommended monetary metals dealers. (http://www.gata.org/node/173)

ATHENS, Greece -- Greece's new left-wing government will cancel plans to sell the state natural gas utility and is firmly opposed to a Canadian-run gold mine that is among the biggest foreign investment projects in the country, the energy minister told Reuters.

The comments on Friday by Panagiotis Lafazanis, who represents the more radical wing of the ruling Syriza party, further reinforces early signs that the government is sticking to campaign pledges that have chilled investment and unnerved financial markets.

The Skouries gold mine operated by Vancouver-based Eldorado Gold Corp. in northern Greece was the flagship project of the last government's foreign investment drive and considered a test case that would reveal whether Greece could protect foreign investors despite local opposition.

"We are absolutely against it and we will examine our next moves on it," Lafazanis, a 63-year-old former Communist, told Reuters at his new ministerial office. He declined to say if the government would try to block the project from going ahead. ...

From Russia Today, Moscow
Friday, January 30, 2015

The Central Bank of Russia bought a record amount of gold in the first 11 months of 2014 spending an estimated $6.1 billion. Increasing gold reserves attempts to reduce dependence on the dollar amid geopolitical tension, Mark O’Byrne of GoldCore told Russia Today. ...

The amount of gold bought went up 123 percent from the previous year to 152 tons, worth $6.1 billion at current prices. It's the most Russia has spent since the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Given the tension between the US and Russia, it's more likely Russia will sell dollar assets and buy gold, said O'Byrne.

"That will be done both to protect the ruble and potentially to position the ruble as a reserve currency in the long term, but also as a signal to Washington," he said, adding that it's almost like a geopolitical move showing that Russia has a monetary and financial alternative and it can retaliate if economic sanctions were to deepen. ...
