I don't have the need to read it as I already know what they are saying. The situation is such that they are using the media (as always) to keep the narrative related to gold negative no matter what the situation. The goal is to create such bad sentiment in the market that traditional investors back away from investing in the metals. The fact of the matter is all of the reasons to buy gold are stronger than ever. I don't need to repeat all of these factors, but over time they will not be able to keep prices down. On the other hand, it seems like they are having a lot of success over the last year to year and a half. They have managed to scare a lot of people out of the market. Time will tell as more currency printing, stimulus, debt and corruption plague the world economies.
everybody and anybody can talk about manipulation til their blue in the face and loosing their voice, the cftc and sec and anybody else that could do anything about it just don't care. not a free market anymore.
But what will happen as the tidal wave of repatriated dollars grows in size? All you have to do is look at the foreign purchases of American assets, note that it is steadily growing and then recognize that someday soon, maybe not tomorrow, but soon nonetheless, hard assets will see phenomenal appreciation relative to anybody's fiat, but the dollar moreso than others.
