Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Monday the Financial Times wrote about us, and
today the London Evening Standard did. Both stories
are in the context of the report out of the London
Business School dismissing the impact of derivatives
on the gold market and purporting to "refute" GATA's
complaint. (If only the big papers remembered their

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Below are the questions I have put to Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan
and Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill through Sen. Joseph I.
Lieberman. It would help if others in the United States asked
their congressmen to do the same.

Fans of gold, notably the US-based Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee
(GATA), believe that at least part of the once-precious metal's price

from Hong Kong, that concludes with a point GATA has been

While the gold price appears to be calm and placid,
powerful forces war behind the scenes in a life-or-
death struggle to shape the gold market of the new

our dispatches as junk mail and filtering them out,
