11-7-09 Los modernos alquimistas .


Adrián Douglas se pregunta por qué los alquimistas tradicionales se molestaban en partir del plomo para lograr oro , cuando los actuales "alquimistas" transforman el papel en oro.
El "oro papel" se estaría produciendo en forma alarmante para mantener el precio "oficial" del oro muy bajo.
El "oro metal" existente no alcanzaría ni de lejos a cubrir el "oro papel".

Commodity exchanges can dump gold debts on ETFs

1p ET Saturday, July 11, 2009

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

GATA board member Adrian Douglas discloses in the report below, titled "The Alchemists," that the New York and Tokyo commodity exchanges have been permitting their gold futures contracts to be settled not in real metal but in shares of gold exchange-traded funds (ETFs). This essentially allows the gold shorts (and the exchanges themselves, which guarantee futures contracts) to transfer their obligations to third parties that may not have the metal they claim to have and that, in any case, are operated by the investment banks running major short positions in gold.
Thus it is likely that the paper claims to the world’s supply of gold are greater than even GATA has suspected — that the gold supply is even more oversubscribed and that "paper gold" is being created at an ever more frantic rate to suppress gold’s price.
The ability to offload futures contract gold obligations to the ETFs could become the principal mechanism of the gold price suppression scheme. GATA asks its supporters to call Douglas’ report to the attention of financial journalists, market regulators, and elected officials everywhere.

The Alchemists
By Adrian Douglas
Saturday, July 11, 2009

In the Middle Ages alchemists toiled in vain to transmute lead into gold. One wonders why they used such an expensive starting material, such as lead, when modern alchemists in the gold world have succeeded in transmuting paper into gold. This article reveals the anatomy of a scam that has been perpetrated on investors and goes a long way to explain and tie together developments in the precious metals markets in recent years.
As many readers may know, I have recently been reporting on how delivery notices at the COMEX cannot be reconciled with movements of metals from and into the warehouse. Clearly these are not going to match on a daily basis, just as orders into a factory will not match shipments out on any given day, as there is a time lag. But when averaged over a month, the "flow" of metal inventory should be comparable to the delivery notices issued. This is just basic accounting. But I have observed that reconciliation is almost impossible with the COMEX data. The only explanation I could think of is that settlement of contracts must be bypassing the warehouse. But how could this be possible, as I thought all contracts had to be delivered via a COMEX registered warehouse?
