Today whistleblower Andrew Maguire stunned King World News when he said that hedge funds which are heavily short gold will get massacred and may in fact go under. Maguire, who recently appeared in the CBC production “The Secret World of Gold,” also spoke about extraordinary events taking place at the LBMA, where bullion banks are in serious trouble once again. Below is part two of a three part series of extraordinary written interviews that will be released today with Maguire on King World News.
Maguire: “The LBMAbullion stocks are thin. For example, the LBMA delivery conditions were extended from 2 days to 5 days. Why do you think this little known decision to extend delivery times was made at the request of the bullion banks? The fact is that the gold market has been in tight supply for some time now.
There is just very little physical (gold) for sale in size at these current levels. In the past I reported leased gold regularly appeared at the (London) fixes, where the Bank of England would step in at the clearing hour, after the fix, to lend metal to meet these delivery shortfalls….
“Much less of this is now happening. Many of these accrued positions, they already can’t be paid back within the originating terms. So on a short-term basis they have to be rehypothecated, further rolled out, and they match even further out forwards and futures (contracts).
Today whistleblower Andrew Maguire warned King World News that the LBMA is now staring dangerously into the abyss once again. Maguire, who recently appeared in the CBC production “The Secret World of Gold,” described this stunning situation as “very similar to the abyss that Gordon Brown stared into when the Bank of England was forced to bailout Goldman Sachs 13 years ago.” Below is part one of a series of extraordinary written interviews that will be released today with Maguire on King World News.
Maguire: “The mainstream media has this myopic focus on the over 600 tons of GLD redemptions, while in reality we are witnessing massive bullion demand far in excess of these relatively small ETF redemptions. This bullion demand is actually putting enormous pressure upon immediately deliverable LBMAbullion stocks.
What is notable, Eric, is that since the ABNAMRO bank default became public, it forced that defensive attack by the Fed and the Bank for International Settlements….
“I know we talked (on KWN) about it right as it happened, and it forced that defensive attack. It was a desperate attempt to bail out an imminent collapse of the largest bullion houses in London. And despite an over $400 rigged decline in the gold price, Eric, here we are back full circle, with the bullion bank inventories again under stress.
Today top trends forecaster Gerald Celente spoke with King World News about the power of gold and an economic collapse. Gerald Celente is the founder of Trends Research, and the man many consider to be the top trends forecaster in the world. Below is what acclaimed forecaster Celente had to say to KWN in this powerful and exclusive interview.
Celente: “That’s what he (Bernanke) said, ‘Nobody understands gold prices.’ He also called gold, I love this one, ‘An unusual asset.’ And he said that some people see gold as ‘disaster insurance.’ Yes, disaster insurance against what people like him and other central bankers are doing — creating a global disaster by printing all of this digital money….
“When you go back and listen to Bernanke, when Ron Paul was a member of the House (of Representatives) and was questioning him and Ron Paul asked him, ‘Is gold money?’ And Bernanke said, ‘No, it’s a precious metal.’
So here’s what I have to say: You better tell the Iranians. (And you better tell) the Turks and the Chinese that are buying Iranian oil and giving Irangold that they are really not giving them (Iran) anything of value, (that instead) it’s only ‘an unusual asset’ (laughter ensues). So they (the Iranians) are selling oil for unusual assets (laughter).
