30+ year participants in precious metals are dumping their exposure and chasing bitcoin and other crypto currencies.  Meanwhile, the May 25th Comex expiration for the June contract was addressed in the last week with a large batch of new short interest contract issuance to meet rising demand so as to keep a lid on gold’s upside.  But a funny thing happened.  The cartel has failed to push gold down.  This is an extremely positive development.  

In the following outstanding interview my colleague Jason Barack asks Mr. Murphy probing questions.   This is listening time well spent.  – Eric Dubin

For now the big accumulators of physical gold (China, Russia, India) are content with the current rigged market price of gold as long as the west can continue to make deliveries into these countries. But at some point the west’s “cupboard” will be bare and big buyers will see what the Comex really has in its vaults.

The cacophony of voices exaggerating the short-term impact of the Chinese yuan into the IMF SDR basket included pathetic, over-the-top marketing of newsletter writers, even by the otherwise venerable Jim Rickards.  This type of hype is damaging, because it sets unrealistic expectations among stackers and other investors seeking to hedge.  When unrealistic expectations fail to materialize, some individuals abandon their hedge and disavow exposure to the precious metals sector.  The newsletter industry disgusts me, and I no longer care to sugar coat my opinion.   – Eric Dubin, Managing Editor, The News Doctors.
