NEW YORK ( Bullion Bulls Canada) -- It is very hard to resist the urge to label members of the mainstream media "parrots" when time after time we see them unanimously regurgitating the exact, same drivel -- no matter how vacuous or absurd the pseudo-reasoning on display.We observe this sad truth again and again in precious metals markets, with the recent pullback in prices being a classic example. Today was a down day for commodities -- all of them -- as the propaganda machine decreed that with a slowing global economy that they were "too risky." The simple fact that we see the entire commodities complex moving in lock-step on most days is conclusive proof by itself of the rampant manipulation of commodities markets in general and precious metals markets in particular. Each individual commodity market is composed of two sets of parameters: "global" parameters (applicable to most/all commodities), and the individual parameters particular to each commodity -- separately. In honest/legitimate markets (i.e. throughout market history), on the vast majority of days, commodities trade based on their individual fundamentals, as it is the exception rather than the rule for global parameters to overwhelm individual parameters in any particular market. We know when commodities are trading based upon their own fundamentals, because they move in different directions and with differing amplitudes. Conversely, days when global parameters dominate all the individual parameters are quite rare, and generally reflect either some dramatic development or overwhelming trend. We know which days global parameters are dominant in our markets, because all the commodities move in both the same direction and with similar amplitudes. Here is where the lies/idiocy of the mainstream media and the manipulation of markets by the banking cabal are clearly exposed. What we now see in markets (month to month) is that in somewhere between 75% and 90% of all trading sessions, global parameters are dominating individual parameters. There are only two possible explanations for this phenomenon in our markets. Either our markets are being mass-manipulated, or we live in a world where on 75% to 90% of the days our "news" (of the day) is dominated by a dramatic development or overwhelming trend.
