After numerous readers commented and emailed complaining regarding this afternoon's post observing the blatant cartel manipulation to stuff gold back below $1800 and silver below $35 after the COMEX session ended, I sat down tonight to give further evidence to support this claim.
When you have watched silver and gold's price movements hourly for the past 15 years, you can spot a cartel raid from a mile away. It's kind of like pornography...you know it when you see it. Explaining to others how to see it takes a little more time and effort.
Our friend Turd from TFMetalsreport has done such an exquisite job this evening charting this blatant occurrence of manipulation that rather than duplicate his fine efforts, we refer you to today's PM manipulation, exhibit A.

Well, look at these charts.
