Dear Friends of GATA and Gold:

GATA hit the business page of the Sunday London
Times today, and some of the quotations about us
were favorable. This is a very encouraging development:

Dear Friends of GATA and Gold:

Here's what will be the final exchange for a while
between Martin Armstrong of Princeton Economics and
myself. While I might quibble with him about William

you'll find his history and insight valuable again, and will

Dear Friends of GATA and Gold:

GATA Chairman Bill Murphy is on the road for a couple
of days and there doesn't seem much to share tonight
about the gold market beyond the usual sources that you
probably check anyway, so I'll share this correspondence
between myself and Martin Armstrong of Princeton
Economics. I hope it's better than nothing!

MIDAS COMMENTARY FOR MAY 12, 1999

By Bill Murphy

Spot Gold $276.80, down $1.10
Spot Silver $5.36, down 3 cents

Technicals....

Goldman Sachs and Deutsche were all over gold today,
selling it in "boatloads." They were all over it
yesterday too. The technicals are certainly bearish,
but they meant nothing on the upside and mean little

"AH: George, you've obviously been watching the
'conspiracy' theorists who believe that every time the
gold price is ready to raise its head, something knocks
it back quite badly. We saw that happening again this
week. In fact last week the gold price seemed to be
heading above $290 and maybe even to $300 before the UK
announcement came out. What's your take on these

Trouble in the gold market?
Analysts see move to manipulate prices

By Jon E. Dougherty
c 1999 WorldNetDaily.com
