Kitco lets fund manager Frank Holmes acknowledge gold rigging by central banks

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Kitco News today takes another baby step toward reality and relevance as its correspondent David Lin prompts fund manager Frank Holmes of U.S. Global Investors to explain gold's poor performance this year, despite the explosion of inflation, as a matter of central bank efforts to "stabilize" the monetary metal's price via manipulation of the futures markets.

Apparently the elephant in the room is dropping so many stink bombs these days that even Kitco feels obliged to acknowledge the smell. But Kitco still seems light years away from actual journalism about the gold "market." Actual journalism would put critical questions about gold to central banks and their gold broker, the Bank for International Settlements.

Buy metals at GoldMoney and enjoy international storage

GoldMoney was established in 2001 by James and Geoff Turk and is safeguarding more than $1.7 billion in metals and currencies. Buy gold, silver, platinum, and palladium from GoldMoney over the Internet and store them in vaults in Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, taking advantage of GoldMoney's low storage rates, among the most competitive in the industry. 

GoldMoney also offers delivery of 100-gram and 1-kilogram gold bars and 1-kilogram silver bars. To learn more, please visit:

What's remarkable about the Lin's interview with Holmes is not what Holmes says but that Kitco permits him to say it.

In fairness to Kitco, it must be noted that even the Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Bloomberg News don't dare do put critical questions to central banks about their market interventions. But then Kitco doesn't seem to be getting much advertising from primary dealers in U.S. government securities and other central bank agents, so Kitco's cowardice has less excuse.

Lin's interview with Holmes is 21minutes long and can be viewed here:
