Somebody is 'sitting on the gold price,' Tocqueville's Hathaway says


11:30p ET Thursday, May 2, 2013

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Interviewed tonight by King World News, Tocqueville Gold Fund manager John Hathaway gets closer than ever to acknowledging gold market manipulation. Hathaway observes that someone -- "whoever" -- "is sitting on the gold price." Maybe in his next interview with King World News Hathaway will be emboldened to speculate on that someone's initials. Maybe "B.B."? And not the "Big Brother" of George Orwell's novel "1984" but the "B.B." who in testimony to Congress in July 2011 affected to believe that central banks hold gold only as "tradition":

An excerpt from Hathaway's interview is posted at the King World News blog here:
