It's like clockwork each trading day. The computers have it scheduled and it happens close to the same time every day. It's so obvious it's actually funny. Have you looked at the spot gold chart? It practically looks like the same chart every day. Ridiculous.
Maybe now that Bart Chilton is retiring from the CFTC he will come clean and spill his guts on what is really happening. I think he tried but was told to shut up or look for a new pair of legs. Who knows what will happen but he was the ONLY one there who even acknowledged the possibility of market rigging. He commented that "His work was done as there was a bill working through limiting positions in the commodity market". It will probably get killed now that he is gone but it implies strongly that HE saw entities in the market with oversized positions for purposes that have so far been unidentified. May he Man up for the sake of the all law abiding citizens, but beware of the consequences if the truth ever becomes known. I think either way civilization as we know it has problems.
