Gold's reaction to Tuesday's fake AP tweet illustrates a "new reality" for the metal says Deutsche's Jens Johansen, who notes the price reacted last (vs. stocks and currencies) and barely budged. His team feels this lends support to their bearish thesis for gold and an expectation it's headed to $1,300 before stabilizing. GLD +1.7%.

    Just means they don't have a computer program surfing twitter to buy Gold on horrific news. We know they have one running for the SPY.

    Johansen makes what seems to me to be one of the more ignorant comments of any stuffed suit. Look at MCD vs WEN, or D vs NGG. Only the bigger companies were connected to the headline-searching computer. So, he now is looking at the gold futures market and concluding something because gold had the same non-response to a fraudulent tweet that Wendy's had?

     

    Stuff that makes you scratch your head and wonder how these guys got and/or keep their jobs.

    I have to agree with mickmars and pmiller100. This looks like one of the stupidest mis-calls I've ever heard. The two comments are probably much closer to the truth. I would think the failure to drop in minutes on potentially horrible news shows gold is stable to everything except massive CB manipulation.

    That's not exactly true

     

    AU bounced off of $1400-1410 intra day & hasn't looked back since then

    Does anyone still trust anything said or done by representatives of the TBTF banks?

    Well, Gold was stable when equities were crashing. Isn't that exactly why we hold physical gold for the long term? I agree with pmiller100, that is about the most stupid conclusion anyone could make. Scratching my head. How do these guys find someone who will pay them for being so outright stupid?

     

    In reality Deutsche wants the price to go to $1,300 so they can buy more even cheaper. That's what's going on here. It's a shake down of the weak kneed morons who are willing to dump their gold at fire sale prices.

     

    The bankers are all just a bunch of Deutsche bags.

    Interesting to see Deutsche Bank AG still busy week after week trying to manipulate gold prices with their baseless comments attempting to drive gold prices to 1300.00 or below...Mr. Johansen is not watching the market per his misguided statement...Stay tuned...This is a strong indicator that the bankers should be relegated to monetary issues and the commodity and investment firms should be the sole market makers for all traded commodities to include precious metals.

    Sounds they're willing to stretch to any limits in searching for things that can be spun as bad news for gold.

     

    Why all the fuss ? What's the agenda ? It's stopping people at all cost from having a logical go-to vehicle to protect themselves against the fiscal mismanagement of our politicians.

    Like a rubber band - - Let them continue to artificially push gold down - - Eventually it will break free and reach its true value
