I'm not a truther. I am not a false flag kind of guy, but there is an issue afoot that is nagging at me.

I have been told by a blogger with a named source that the United States Federal Reserve sold naked
short calls on Gold on April 12, 2013 to the tun of 500 TONS that is 16 million ounces of Gold. This person
says the FED did this because of the prior movements in precious metals it appeared that someone was
going to make a run on taking them out of storage to which the FED engaged this practice to implode the
PM market and benefit the dolla and itself.

Either way a journalist has a story here. The story is either the FED did in fact do this (as now stated
without credit by a FED Memember) or this is just a messed up means of selling gold bullion by sellers
looking to instill fear. Obviously if its the later it would have no bearing on Boston. But what if our
FED did in fact manipulate the gold market to bolster the dollar because of fears the market might
drop and ruin dollar valuations? What if that story was about to break? Would then our government
"change" the subject - BOOM? God I hope not.

If our government performed "drug" experiments on our citizens without their knowledge, I put nothing past it. Besides, look what we have for leadership.

We really need the named source and or a link, preferably before they knock your door down.

This? Update: Assault On Gold - | Intellihub.com
Sure sounds like what you referenced, almost to the word.
I do not trust the government in general, and Barack Obama in particular, but I do not believe the level of evil required to perform this act of terror originated with our government.

I know Soros sold half of his gold ETF holdings in February, and I have not read anything that indicated he bought back in.

There was speculation he was buying physical gold assets, but nothing confirmed.

The dollar is strengthening, stocks are at record highs, and inflation has increased but is still within reason. Bernanke's liquidity policies appear to be working at the moment, and now Japan is following a similar approach.

I got out of silver, reallocated to 60% cash, and stayed in the stock market despite my concerns the market will drop off at some point, which I have been wrong about - it is on a tear. I just got my 401(K) quarterly statement and it had a decent increase.

Gold will never fall much below the cost of producing it, but major institutions are saying it is headed to $1200, and silver is crashing alongside it.

If Bernanke keeps up capital infusions until he retires, the economy may recover by then. If not, we will have a liquidity bubble that pops, and the market will slide down. How fast and how far are the two troubling questions, but the big one is WHEN...?

If anything an event like this will make the price of gold rise. We saw it after 9/11. Stock market fell, gold went up and continued to do so until a year or so ago. When something happens that puts question into possible buyers spending money it runs the market down. When the market goes down people buy gold so it makes no sense that that the government would short sell in anticipation of something like this happening. It especially doesn't make sense that they would do a naked short sell which means they didn't own the gold when they sold it.
