An ever increasing number of news outlets are publishing stories about the alleged gold price manipulation. Even German mainstream TV channel, 3sat, broadcasted a short documentary on gold manipulation last week.

The momentum started when the Financial Times published an article in February quoting, Alberto Thomas, partner at consultancy firm Fideres, “the behaviour of the gold price is very suspicious in 50 per cent of the cases. This is not something you would expect to see if you take into account normal market factors.”

Interestingly, the article was removed from the Financial Times website after only been published for two days.
