Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

One big gold shorter, Deutsche Bank, having bid for
another big gold shorter, J.P. Morgan, who else would
be the latest suitor for Morgan but ... the third
biggest gold shorter, Chase Manhattan?

That was the news today, and a Reuters story about it
is attached. This seems like a lot more than mere
coincidence. Gold's enemies are all collecting in one

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

GATA Chairman Bill Murphy has sent the following
letter to the Frankfurter Allgemeine in response
to its September 7 story quoting criticism of
GATA by the World Gold Council and its consultant,
Jessica Cross.

Murphy's reply is specific in every respect and
I think it shows that Cross and, more unfortunately,
the WGC don't know what they are talking about, so

Make that ROBERT Chapman

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The World Gold Council and Gold Fields Mineral Service
got their say today in the Frankfurter Allgemeine,
Germany's leading newspaper, as it published its third
article about GATA in two weeks.

So on behalf of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee, I
have sent her the letter that appears below.

officials are awakening to the manipulation of markets
in the United States -- and GATA seems to have been the

one of Germany's leading newspapers. On August 25, 2000, the FAZ
ran an article about gold that featured GATA and suggested that

Spot gold $277.20, up $3.70
Spot silver $4.96, up 5 cents

Today was the best trading day of the summer for gold
and silver. The dollar was very strong as it went into
new contract high ground. Oil set back temporarily
after its torrid run up.

Why the relatively big move for the precious metals?
