  • An Opinion on Clive Maund

    Posted on by admin Comment

    June 8, 2012

    After the precious metals were hit hard after reaching a high of $1920/ounce on September 6, 2011, the market has been in a mini-bear mode ever since.  The fundamentals for high precious metals prices were still in place and indeed they are even stronger today.  So, what caused the rout?

    Through other reading on the net, I got word that Clive Maund had successfully called the price decline in advance for his subscribers.  I had also heard that he had previously correctly predicted the May 1, 2011 silver smack down.  I thought perhaps my negative judgements on technical analysis were premature and that maybe I could learn something from this prospective sage.

    So I decided to try his service.

    After signing up, he did correctly call the bottom and advised his subscribers to get out of their short positions at pretty much the perfect time.  However, since then, Clive’s success rate reveals that he’s no sage – indeed, he and his unwitting subscribers are more likely the poor stooges on which the commercial players are feeding.

    Admittedly, the markets since September, 2011 have been difficult, especially for buy-and-hold investors.  Volatility has been extreme and it’s been a trader’s market, if anything.  The problem for Clive’s subscribers is that he changes his mind frequently and it’s not always clear whether new positions are in addition to or instead of older positions.  When the trade goes bad, he’s rather silent, even leaving his subscribers in the dark.  But when a call ends up to be correct, he’s quick to advertise.  In fact, sometimes he advertises his calls in reports available to the general public, usually when subscribers already have their positions in place, but not always. Specifically, more than one time he has reversed a decision and went public immediately, before subscribers were able to get out of their positions, leaving them potentially exposed to opposing actions by public readers of his report.

    A good example of silence after a bad call was Clive’s alert on the natural gas sector in the beginning of February 2012. His charts showed a major reversal coming in the sector and advised subscribers “buy aggressively.”  To be fair, the report advised that stop-losses be set “directly below support” shown on the chart.  Still, after recommending buying natural gas along with specific investments in GaStar Exploration (GST), United States Natural Gas Fund (USNG), and ProShares Ultra DJ-UBS Natural Gas ETF (BOIL), when the market went the opposite direction almost immediately, not one word from Clive to subscribers went out.  He assumes his subscribers’ stop-losses were set and gives no further report on what happened or why his original analysis was incorrect.

    If Clive has a gift, I would guess that it lies in reading charts and converting that analysis into some technical perspective.  But he doesn’t stick to that technical analysis alone – he utilizes the emotional economic backdrop of the European/American crisis to justify his chart analysis.  In fact, his alerts to subscribers frequently portray the same scary themes one would expect from free services such as Bloomberg or ZeroHedge.

    With all the problems in Europe at present, Clive’s calls have been echoing all the terror evident in the blogosphere. The emotion has run high in his reports on the precious metals markets.  Twice in less than a month starting at the end of May 2012, in his effort to show an imminent price explosion to the upside for precious metals, he’s used the term “This is it!”  His advice was to go long on GLD and SLV call options and even the 2X and 3X silver vehicles like AGQ and USLV.  Unfortunately, both times the prices went the other direction, causing him to send out a warning on possible price declines even further. And worse for his paid subscribers, his last warning was open to the general public – again making it even more difficult for subscribers to get out of their positions with minimal losses.  Just what are subscribers paying for, anyway?

    Now, stepping back and looking at Clive’s technical analysis over the past 8 months, I have to wonder if chartists like Clive and their subscriber-sheep are really the patsies that the commercial traders have been fleecing in their market manipulations. When the simple folk invest in 2X and 3X gold and silver ETF vehicles, or take options positions in GLD or SLV, just who is taking the opposite side of those investments? Could it be the same small and large speculators in the commodities futures/options markets that always seem to get fleeced by the commercial institutions?

    According to Ted Butler, who’s been studying the commodity futures/options Commitment of Traders (COT) reports for more than 30 years, commercial traders manipulate the market against the small and large technical traders whenever they smell blood – that is, when the commercials have a net short position and the the technical funds have a net long position. They ‘manage’ the market lower and trigger the technical funds’ stop-losses forcing even lower prices as the technical funds sell their positions.  The commercial traders easily soak up all these contracts at a profit on their short positions.

    Could it be that those small and large speculators are selling equities and options in the stock markets to the sheep, then taking the proceeds and buying commodity futures contracts with leverage?  Under this scenario, it’s the sheep, not the small and large commodity futures speculators that end up being fleeced – they’re only ‘betting’ the money they got from the sheep. But if the sheep end up making money, the small and large commodity speculators make even more money because they have leverage on their futures positions. So that’s the motivation for the small and large speculators to keep coming back for more in the rigged futures markets – they’ve got nothing to lose and much to gain.  It’s the sheep that always end up losing.

    The prices of precious metals are currently set in these commodities futures markets. It is a paper contract that is traded, NOT the physical metal. This ‘mechanism’ cannot last forever.  At some point, the physical metal will become too scarce.

    Conclusion: It would be much better if the sheep stopped following the advice of clowns like Clive, using paper vehicles to trade in the precious metals markets.  Instead of buying ETFs like GLD, SLV, USLV, AGQ, or worse buying commodity futures/options contracts with leverage, investors should go out and buy the physical metals.  When the physical metals are no longer available in the marketplace, the prices will have nowhere to go but up!  Until this happens, the commercials and trading institutions will continue to reap most of the paper profits.

    Posted on by JonK Comment

    Eric Sprott is interviewed on CNBC and gives some new perspectives on gold and silver investing for main-stream viewers.  He mentions how the central banks of the world do not like to see the price of gold go higher because that would be a sign of the true weakness in their fiat money as they continually print more to fight the contagion in their economies.  He also expects silver to out-perform gold and gives some interesting statistics for his reasoning.


  • Gold & Silver Market Manipulation

    Every day, more investors are becoming aware of the suppression of precious metals prices in the futures and options markets.  It’s a serious issue and needs careful consideration. The following updates to this issue are posted in an effort to keep a historical record and to allow the reader an intial place to start in his/her own research.

    December 18, 2012

    Serving as a brief review of many of the issues already documented on this page, Lauren Lyster interviews GATA’s Bill Murphy & Chris Powell.

    November 14, 2012

    Bart Chilton is interviewed on RT, where he admits to seeing one participant in the silver market hold a 30% concentrated position. Of course, although he doesn’t explicitly state the nature of this position, it should be noted that it is a short position that trader held. When the Hunt Brothers were charged with a manipulative position of the silver market in 1980, it was only a 20% position, but it was on the long side.

    October 25, 2012

    If you’re going to get into or stay into gold and silver you have to know what you’re up against — which is to say you’re up against all the money and power in the world.“  That is a paragraph taken from this most excellent article posted over at GATA by Chris Powell.  The article discusses:

    • The fact that not only precious metals markets, but most all markets are potentially rigged – and legally, due to the Gold Reserve Act providing the Exchange Stabilization Fund, managed by the US Treasury, with the ability to secretly intervene in any financial market, while being exempt from congressional oversight and questioning.
    • The debasement of US coinage in 1965 and President Johnson’s warning to potential hoarders of silver.
    • The selling and leasing practices of western central banks.
    • German government concern regarding its own central bank’s gold transactions as well as its practice of storing the national gold reserves abroad at the Bank of England, Bank of New York and Bank of France, where its likely that the gold has been used in swap and/or leasing schemes to help keep the price controlled.
    • GATA’s never-ending battle to obtain information (using FOIA) regarding gold transactions by the Fed and US Treasury.

    The article has many valuable and interesting links, supporting central banking intervention in the precious metals markets.

    October 13, 2012

    In the following video, Lars Schall interviews Dimitri Speck, author of the German-language book “Geheime Goldpolitik” (“Secret Gold Policy”).  Dimitri summarizes the history of the price capping schemes the central banks have undertaken in the gold and silver markets since 1993.

    September 24, 2012

    Here’s an article over at the International Man site by Jeff Thomas. The article gives a somewhat simplified overview of how banks control the price of gold as well as a likely scenario of what will happen when more people start seeking physical bullion and avoid its paper derivatives (i.e. ETFs & pooled accounts) as they realize there isn’t enough physical to go around.  This, combined with the comments section, provides for an interesting read.

    September 6, 2012

    Bill Murphy (GATA) and Lauren Lyster (RT) review recent developments in the ongoing precious metals price suppression activities and the investigation by the CFTC.  See this page for more information.

    August 20, 2012

    The makers of the animated movie, Silver Circle, have provided a comprehensive summary of the silver price suppression in pdf format.

    August 11, 2012

    Dimitri Speck has done some investigative research into the $22 gold price plunge on June 7, 2012 using the COMEX’s own trading records.  He published his findings over at Safehaven.com, which reveal that the price was smashed in less than a second at 9:21 PM at the 20-second mark.  Only High Frequency Trading (HFT) algorithms could accomplish such a feat.  The price was thereafter suppressed for a couple hours, allowing the financial institution(s)’ employing the HFT technology to reap quick profits. “This was a well-defined incident in thin trading, limited to a short time period and to a single market. These conditions make it ideal for a successful investigation by the regulatory authorities.

    August 7, 2012

    Lauren Lyster of RT interviews Chris Powell of GATA regarding the Fed’s surreptitious suppression of the gold (and silver) price.  The discussion yields a good understanding of the situation.  Powell reminds the audience that in 1965, President Johnson, as he signed the Coinage Act of 1965, warned silver investors not to invest in silver – not to drive the price up – because the US government would dis-hoard from its strategic silver stockpile to rig the silver price. (See actual remarks of silver hoarding by President Johnson here.)  So, since 1965, the US government has pledged to rig the silver market. Another astonishing fact conveyed during the interview is the establishment and use of the ESF (Exchange Stabilization Fund) in order to trade (intervene) in any market the Treasury chooses.  Only the President and the Treasury Secretary have the legal authority to control and have knowledge of the activities of the ESF and it is exempt from any inquiries including immunity from any efforts based on the Freedom of Information Act.

    July 30, 2012

    Back in September of 2009, Zero Hedge claimed that this conspiracy revolving around gold price suppression was “no longer a theory, … merely sad.  The evidence Zero Hedge uncovered, the smoking gun, was a memo written in 1975 by then Chairman of the Fed, Arthur Burns.  The memo was addressed to President Ford and outlined a disagreement between Fed policy and U.S. Treasury Policy on the issue of whether or not central banks of the world should be free to buy gold from one another at market prices.  Even back then, in 1975, the official price of gold was $42.22/ounce, but market prices had been trading between $160 and $175.  The Treasury was apparently open to such free market activity, but the Fed was opposed.  The Fed’s position was further clarified: Every country should have limits (ceilings) on their individual gold holdings.  The reasoning the Fed gave for their position was four-fold:

    1. There was no urgency to allow free market activity on the gold price to support central bank balance sheets because countries had relatively easy access to “borrowing facilities” or could even sell their gold or use it as collateral for loans.
    2. The gold issue should not be discussed separately. The “desired shape of the future world monetary system” may be “prejudged” if the policy on gold were decided in the absence of a consensus of that system.
    3. It was believed that France and other countries were striving for a higher gold price in order to increase the “relative importance of gold in the monetary system.”
    4. Higher gold prices would allow countries to revalue their gold holdings, as France had already done at the time.  This would result in massive “liquidity creation” and frustrate efforts to keep inflation under control.

    July 10, 2012

    Posted over at GATA.org, the latest edition of Things that make you go Hmmm… by Grant Williams explains how gold and silver market manipulation is no longer the realm of conspiracy theorists.  The LIBOR manipulation scandal has proven that the financial elite are capable of exercising long-lasting, inconspicuous maneuvers to prolong the illusion of fiscal integrity.  Even the main-stream media is picking up on this as seen in this CNBC interview with Cheviot Asset Management Investment Director Ned Naylor-Leyland:

    July 3, 2012

    Now, after Barclays has admitted to their involvement in manipulating the LIBOR benchmark rate, CNBC brings up the manipulation of the silver market (around the 9:27 mark) saying “And they are!

    June 27, 2012

    Here’s a comprehensive article from GATA’s Chris Powell giving an historical account of the gold price manipulation: The why and how of gold price suppression.

    June 22, 2012

    CNBC Asia interviewed GATA’s Chris Powell regarding central bank intervention in the gold markets and their motives behind their actions. They’re able to suppress the price using paper instruments that are supposed to have physical gold backing, but do not.  He estimates that 70-80% of all the gold people think they own doesn’t really exist!  See the CNBC interview here.

    June 13, 2012

    In his letter to subscribers today, Ted Butler has finally come to the conclusion that the U.S. government is not only aware of JP Morgan’s manipulative short positions in the silver commodity futures market, but also intent on allowing them to continue to suppress the price of silver using those paper derivative positions. Read more about it here.

    April 30, 2012

    Today, when the gold and silver prices were slammed at the New York NYMEX open, the gold price was instantly down about $15/ounce (1%).  For those precious metals investors who see this occur so frequently, they’re used to seeing the prices manipulated in such a manner. But the main-stream media outlets still refuse to report the issue objectively. The Wall Street Journal reports the incident as the result of a “fat finger” trading entry – a simple human error of sorts.

    On the other hand, Russia Today’s Lauren Lyster interviews Bill Murphy of GATA on gold price manipulation and specifically mention JP Morgan as the institution behind the futures market rigging.

    April 21, 2012

    In this interview, Jim Rickards, author of Currency Wars, gives some insight on the intentions behind central banks’ desire to see gold’s price rise, but in an “orderly way.” That is, the central banks manage the price so it doesn’t explode to the upside violently. Overall, however, a slow and steady rise in the gold price achieves their objective of debasing the paper currency, thus enabling debt to be paid off easier and also allowing exports to increase GDP.

    James Turk - GoldMoney, Free Gold Money ReportDoug Casey - Casey Research

    In the April issue of The Casey Report (subscriber protected), Casey wrote an article comparing the current gold bull market with that of the 1970′s.  He also took up the issue of precious metals market manipulation. While he doesn’t dismiss the idea outright, he does ask some important questions, which he believes need answering.

    In response, here is an article from James Turk entitled, Some Answers to Doug Casey’s Questions, which discusses in some detail, the motives and methods behind the precious metals manipulation scheme.

    And, weighing in with their grand arsenal of proof, GATA responds too.

    Here’s Mike Maloney interviewed on Russia Today where the gold and silver price suppression schemes are discussed.  Gold leasing by central banks and Futures paper contract selling are among the concepts reviewed.

    April 6, 2012

    CNBC has interviewed Blythe Masters, Head of Global Commodities at JP Morgan, and discusses the speculation of precious metals manipulation.

    Masters indicated that JP Morgan doesn’t hold the positions for itself, rather they are client positions.  In this GATA dispatch, Chris Powell takes up the charge that this is indeed the truth and that the client JP Morgan is working for is actually the Federal Reserve.

    March 30, 2012

    The state of South Carolina has recently published a report on gold and silver investing that admits, “The Federal Reserve, The London Bullion Market Association, JP Morgan Chase, and HSBC Holdings have practiced fractional-reserve banking and engaged in naked short selling causing artificial price supression.” (See the bottom of page 1 within the pdf report, Proviso 89.145 Gold/Silver Investment report to the General Assembly located on the Office of the State Treasurer’s Transparency Center web page.)

    The beneficiary of such manipulation is any entity which owns assets based on fiat currencies.  It should be understood that a rising price of gold in terms of US dollars is indicative of a weakening dollar. So, that’s one of the primary motives for these institutions to suppress precious metal prices – to keep up the appearance of a strong dollar, which maintains their dollar-based wealth.

    In addition to the video and audio links below, there have been some excellent articles written and for those that prefer to read about the manipulation, here are a couple suggestions:

  • Precious Metal ETFs

    Gold & Silver ETFs
    September 5, 2011

    There are many ways to take advantage of the current bull market in the precious metals – gold & silver. It can get a little confusing, especially to the investor just beginning to look into the matter.

    The easiest, though not necessarily the safest, way to take part in the precious metals market is to utilize the stock market and invest in an ETF (Exchange Traded Fund). An ETF is essentially a derivative because it derives its stock value based on the price of the underlying precious metal. For example, the biggest gold ETF is the SPDR GLD Trust (Ticker=GLD). The GLD ETF claims to hold a certain allocated amount of gold in a vault somewhere in London. It is this physical gold that would give value to each share of the GLD stock.

    However, it would be preferable if the ETF in question would allow the stockholder to receive his/her gold upon request. According the the GLD prospectus if a certain stockholder has a Basket of 100,000 shares, they may act through an Authorized Participant to redeem their shares for physical gold. But most people aren’t wealthy enough to own that many GLD shares.

    So what would happen if some unforeseen economic crisis caused such a stir that all those stockholders who are wealthy enough to have that many shares decided to redeem their Baskets? There is a very good chance that the value of the stock itself would crash because there isn’t enough gold supporting the outstanding shares – some shareholders would be left with shares that don’t have any supporting underlying metal. To see the reasons why this could happen, one only needs to investigate two things:

    • First, look at the NAV (Net Asset Value) of a basket of GLD shares in terms of ounces of gold. From the perspectus:

      “The number of ounces of gold required to create a Basket or to be delivered upon the redemption of a Basket gradually decreases over time, due to the accrual of the Trust’s expenses and the sale of the Trust’s gold to pay the Trust’s expenses.”

      This means that as time goes by, even those wealthy enough to own 100,000 shares of GLD, will get less and less physical gold when they redeem them.

    • Second, there is a huge amount of short interest in the GLD stock as can be seen here. At the time of this writing, the short interest is about 6%. And that represented 24,570,100 shares which had absolutely no metal backing up those shares. If this were a temporary occurance, one may forgive the situation as it would be necessary during the periodic volativity of trading activity to temporarily issue shares while the Trust’s sponsor accumulated the metal in the open physical market. But since this short situation is rather constantly above this percentage, it is not a temporary thing – indeed it is an aberration! There shouldn’t be naked short shares exceeding the neighborhood of 1% of the outstanding share base (and that’s even extreme for this kind of investment vehicle which attempts to map a certain amount of physical metal to each share).

    The same situation results in an investigation of the largest silver ETF, iShares Silver Trust (Ticker=SLV).

    There are, however, other ETFs which do offer better odds for the investor and have much more responsible trustees. Two that come to mind are the Sprott Physical Gold Trust (PHYS) and the Sprott Physical Silver Trust (PSLV). There are similar management overhead situations in both of these ETFs, but their short interest seem to be much more under control. (At the time of this writing the short interest was 0.05% and 1.4% respectively.)

    More importantly, any shareholder who has enough PHYS shares to exchange for the equivalent cost of a 400 ounce good delivery bar can do so on a monthly basis:

    “Unitholders that own the equivalent dollar value of approximately one LGD gold bar (~400oz), or more, have the ability to redeem their units for physical gold bullion.”

    So, that’s about 40,000 shares necessary for redemption in physical metal in PHYS versus 100,000 share Baskets via Authorized Participants in GLD.

    It get’s better. There seems to be tax advantages PHYS & PSLV have over other ETFs:

    “For U.S. non-corporate investors who hold units for one year or more and timely file a QEF form, PHYS units are currently taxed at a capital gains rate of 15%, versus 28% applied against most gold ETF’s and physical gold coins*.”

    But even these ETFs have potentially negative side-affects. It should be pointed out that not all analysts agree and here’s one article that disses PHYS.

    If you just want to play the bull market by trading paper money and don’t expect to need the physical metal in the near future, then perhaps the ETF is a vehicle you can use to book profits. Just make sure you understand that the profits (or losses) will be in paper-based fiat currencies like the U.S. dollar. And as you should already know, all fiat currencies of the world are now racing to their nominal values (=zero). This article explains why that’s happening.

    It’s just better and safer to own and hold your own physical metal in your hands. Especially if a catastrophe hits the global monetary system, as could happen given the situation with the dervatives market.
