I think that (almost) everybody who invests in the PM markets realize that there has been (and probably will be) manipulation going on. Check this out!
Now, it appears as though even Kitco is complicit in this treachery.
It will not stand though. For those of you who are buying and holding for prepping purposes, it matters little. For those rich bastards who only seek to enrich themselves, this is tragic. When the SHTF, which it will, the prices will adjust. There is nothing that can be done to stop it. Those who are a part of this manipulation will someday be held to account. In real and personal terms.
