Fed is virtually on the record about regulating gold, Marshall Auerback writes

8:55p ET Wednesday, August 20, 2003

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Looks like we're on the verge of a breakout for gold
or one more desperate smashing by the Exchange
Stabilization Fund, but even if it's the latter, such
smashings are having only a fraction of the duration
they used to have as the physical gold market slowly
pushes the paper price higher.

In the meantime, there is so much of urgent interest
about gold to be had via the Internet, and here's a
small sampling from the last 24 hours. (You're not
REALLY serious about gold unless you check every day
most of the Internet sites cited on the master list
below.)

GATA Chairman Bill Murphy is interviewed by Al
Korelin and Mike Hartfield for the August 23 edition
of the Korelin Hartfield Report:

Murphy's commentary tonight at LeMetropoleCafe is
the most comprehensive you're likely to get about
this week's action in the gold market. If you're not a
subscriber, you can read it for free by taking a free

GATA consultant James Turk, editor of the Freemarket
Gold and Money Report and proprietor of GoldMoney,
writes tonight that the gold shares are signalling a
breakout for the gold price, and he has a chart to
support his argument. You can find Turk's analysis
at the left side of the GoldMoney home page under
"Founder's Commentary":

http://goldmoney.com/en/index.php

Turk was interviewed the other day by Steve Carr's
"Honest Money" radio program on the Tiger Financial
Network. You can listen to the interview here:

Click on the link for the August 6 show. The
interview with Turk begins about 5 minutes and 20
seconds into the program.

At CBSMarketWatch, Thom Calandra asks whether the
gold rally is real, and gets encouraging answers:

2D4E8A%2DA3DA%2DF6FC2C357960%7D&siteid=mktw

Here's an abbreviated link for Calandra's latest:

Or just go to the CBSMarketWatch home page,
where, at this hour, Calandra's commentary is
listed toward the bottom in the commentary
section under "Stockwatch."

Last but not least, Jim Sinclair, CEO of Tan Range
Exploration and free teacher to a new generation of
gold traders, has posted two essential commentaries
at his Internet site today:

Sinclair's second commentary, "The Order of the
Golden Comets," has some good laughs as he brings
technical analysis to what Murphy has been
predicting, a "commercial signal failure" in the
gold market.
