Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

While the World Gold Council undertaking reported in
the Gulf News story below may be little more than a
cover for more gold leasing, it still may be encouraging
for reflecting recognition that gold is now the "most
sought-after asset class." Just make sure that your
gold is really where you think it is and that it's

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Jim Sinclair has several commentaries on today's action
in the gold market, including an especially important one,
"New York Fumes, $401 Looms."

made it a target for the great golden bull.
