  1. How can any market be invested in with any confidence when the market makers themselves don't participate in price discovery? Would you invest in a Pig in a Poke? The Federal Reserve Has No Integrity Any pretense of a free market system for gold trade, hedging or futures has been a joke since 1980. It's sad there are so many market pundits that fail to recognize this all important fact. To my mind it's very much like your car mechanic refusing to recognize that your car's motor requires an air supply. A car mechanic without that basic knowledge is about as useless as teats on a boar. I was an industrial physical gold hedger on COMEX for several years in the 1970's. The beginning of price manipulation was obvious to all participants in the markets back then. It was surprising but there was no way the fact was denied by anyone that understood the market. Perhaps it would be wise to require today's financial newsletter writers and advisers to actually participate in the the markets they comment on. You know - put their money where their mouth is. Nothing like a real world spanking by the market to bring the reality of a manipulated market home. My solution to all this deception is to simply buy physical gold. If you "own" paper gold certificates, ETFs or a futures position I strongly suggest you consider obtaining a broader education in the paper gold market. It couldn't hurt to know more about the market you are in and it might just save you from a much harder lesson down the line. Please don't take this as financial advice. Do your own due diligence and prosper.
