from not being money anymore, gold was so tempting
as money to central banks and bullion banks that
they couldn't help but spend it as recklessly as they
could, putting themselves in an impossible situation

Bankers lost all restraint when it came to gold

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

I'm sharing with you below the daily market commentary of Michael
Kosares, proprietor of www.USAGold.com, which I'm sure many of you

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

volume of gold derivatives had exploded recently. Now he
is disclosing the same situation with Deutsche Bank.

This means that the primary agents in capping the gold
price have been identified.

GATA will be pursuing this.
