Executive & Research Director @ GoldCore

◆ Gold price falls to a three-month low as concentrated selling of COMEX gold futures contracts equal to over 3 million ounces are sold in 30 minutes

◆ 33,596 contracts were aggressively sold in the 30 minutes between 10:00 and 10:30 a.m. New York time which is more than triple the 100-day average for that time of day

◆ This pushed the most active gold contract to as low as $1,448.90 an ounce, the lowest since August 5 as reported by Bloomberg (see chart below)

◆ It is all very predictable and has been going on for many years now. It is another exaggerated and manipulated “correction” either for profit purposes or official intervention to depress gold prices

◆ Gold closes just 0.4% lower on the day which was encouraging and support is at $1,450/oz level and then at the $1,400/oz level

◆ The price weakness provides another gift to gold and silver bullion coin and bar buyers focused on long term wealth preservation and growth
