"Gold Stock Analysts' keynote speaker is Jim Grant and Kitco News sits with the interest rate guru himself to see how he sees central bankers affecting gold prices this year. "My hunch is that [the Fed] will be very slow to raise its rate," he says, adding that it will prove to be difficult for the central bank this year. "I think central banks are mainly marching to the same beat of the same drummer. The drummer is of radical intervention," he says. Looking to gold prices, Grant says he is frustrated because he sees "clearly why gold ought to be doing better." He says he can't imagine how anyone can have confidence in the current doctrines of central bankers. "It seems to me that the world will eventually see that these policies are non-starters, or if they are starting they won't end well...that for me is a simple case for gold."

"Gold is under pressure today and sliding from $1,300 level reached last week towards $1,250. Good day to check on Gold fundamentals with Chris Martenson and Gold manipulation with Chris Powell from GATA. The key to the Bull market is price action with higher lows and higher highs ... Gold is making it so far from last December. How long the manipulation by Central Banks can take its place and distort all markets and Gold primarily? China can be the answer and Jim Rickards even goes as far as suggesting that China is benefiting from this arranged manipulation accumulating all available Gold now. I do not know whether China participate in this manipulation with FED and other Central Banks, but it is definitely buying all the dips so far! Read more."
