    Note: London is a de facto paper market and the fix is used as conduit as part of the effort to suppress the gold price. This why all of the info reported by the LBMA is more opaque now. The fix data used to be reported an hour after the event. Now it’s delayed 7-8 hours. Why?

  • From ch4mez:

    @PeterSchiff @SchiffGold Gold price is rigged. This much is obvious. If there was ever a time for gold to shine, it was during the time of the depleted dollar and economic uncertainty, but here we are, in the 1800s still. Its almost like a contact free superior store of value emerged 🧐

  • From dinopontino:

    @CryptoCrackLord @PeterSchiff He’s in the gold business, makes perfect sense. The war between him and Max K. is rhetoric garbage. They are the same thing. I’m way more interest in how btc could end the fed or possibly lead to true gold price discovery.
