GATA’s Bill Murphy was interviewed by Finance and Liberty for his thoughts on the latest smash in gold and silver, taking the metals back under $1400 and $23.
Murphy stated: We’ve been having waterfall attacks every other day for the past 2 weeks. It’s clearly the gold cartel, why no one else talks about this is beyond my comprehension! Plan A (for a metals smash) is around 3am NY time when London traders report for work, and Plan B after the London fix, they hit it when the COMEX opens with thousands of contracts in seconds. Sentiment, retail sales, absolutely nothing matters to this market except bullion banks discharging their bazookas!
On how far gold & silver could fall if $1300 & $22 give way: There’s no telling. This is like the German’s invading Russia in WWII. They kept going & going, but they overextended themselves, and had to fall-back. This was orchestrated in the beginning of October, & I’ve never seen anything like it.
