Yes, I think it is either something you come around to, about there really not being any long term manipulation, or you are of the type that believes it wholeheartedly and nothing will change your mind.

I think maybe a question to ask though, is how long can it be manipulated?  I would tend to say easily longer than most people can mentally hold out, and that's the problem with the gold market and other markets.

Going up -- markets can go up way longer than expected sucking in every last investor, even those at the top thinking it can still go a lot higher.

Going down, ditto, people selling thinking it can go much lower.

The market is very good at screwing with people's minds!  I am just such a recovering person!

Ad O, I thought your post was going to read, "Or is it myth?"
Thanks for not pulling a Don Lemon. ;-)

Well according to Eric Sprott the central banks have nearly run out of gold and while he doesn't put a timeframe on it, his comments would imply that it will end soon. Somehow I don't think that will stop commentators blaming manipulation every time the gold price doesn't do what they want it to.

For a long term investor following a disciplined rebalancing stratgegy, as Craig says, the short term manipulations that occur don't matter.

The "manipulators" are either asleep at the wheel this morning, or they have decided to manipulate the price higher.

What's going on here?  I assume people think "hot economy = inflation," but on the other hand "hot economy = interest rate hikes" so why is TLT ballin'?

An unbelievable 800,000 people left the workforce last month.  There are now a stunning 92,000,000 people who have left the workforcein total , the highest since Jimmy Carter was President in 1978. That doesn't sound like much of a thriving economy going forward and could explain the recent rise in long term treasuries.

I watch the gold and silver price several times a day ( I know I'm weird) and the price action has got to be more than coincidence. There are times when the entire world supply of these metals is being sold short on paper in one day especially silver.
