That’s what Patrick Heller argues in an article headlined “Major gold and silver price suppression now a weekly occurrence. So what?”  He writes of having “previously warned my readers that markets will be more volatile as we get closer to the time when I expect gold and silver prices to soar.  When the US government needs to work with its trading partners and allies to engineer a major price suppression once a week, we are getting a lot closer to the day when such tactics will no longer work.”
