...The sell-off today in the gold and silver market was unadulterated, blatant price manipulation confined to just the CME paper gold trading arena using Comex paper gold contracts, as soon as the FOMC policy statement was released at 2 p.m. NY Time. Note that the only commodity market in the world that is open at this time is the CME/Comex. Market “depth” is thin at this time of day. The paper gold price was further hit another $20 right after the NYSE closed (click image to enlarge), when liquidity is as its lowest.

Premiums on physical gold and silver were unaffected.
