Treasury's two year sell-off of its reserves, which
ends next month, nursing a loss of hundreds of

the following statement. Part of it is for
GATA supporters, and part of it is for
subscribers to his proprietary Internet site,

Hi, Chris:

I'm a currency strategist and have read a lot about GATA.
I would like to know what you think would happen in the
short term (this year) if gold spot clips $320. In simple
terms, do you think banks would start to default in large?
This will have a huge impact on spot forex medium-term
strategy. Most of us are already short yen on the
potential of bank default.

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Our friend Reg Howe first raised the issue of the
disproportionate position in derivatives of J.P.
Morgan Chase. Today it was the subject of John
Crudele's column in the New York Post, published

Wall Streets. It's a good bet that it was read by
some of the denizens of that neighborhood.
