About this book

The Gold Cartel is an insightful and thought-provoking analysis of the world market for gold, how it works, and what influences gold price. But it also lends insight into something more disturbing – the organized intervention in the gold markets by Central Banks.

About the authors

DIMITRI SPECK is commodity analyst and chief developer of trading strategies for asset manager Staedel Hanseatic, where he is responsible for the Stay-C commodity fund that won the Hedge Fund Journal's award as best European commodity fund. He specialises in economic history and empirical measurable market patterns, and in 2001 he discovered, with the help of intraday anomalies, that central banks have been systematically intervening in the gold market – research that formed the basis for this book. Speck holds a patent for an iterative financial market, is the author of numerous articles on the gold markets and other financial topics, and is publisher of the financial website www.seasonalcharts.com.

Reviews

"From my studies in economic history I am not familiar with a single instance where a market manipulation has been successful in the long-term. Governments and their Agencies always impose price support or price suppression measures (for instance price and wage controls) but market forces always dispose of these interventions by prices collapsing through support levels or soaring though the temporary controlled prices. It is my opinion that soaring gold prices in future will completely destroy the little credibility central banks still enjoy. This is a very good and well researched read." - Marc Faber, Editor, The Gloom Boom and Doom Report

"The Gold Cartel is a brisk, articulate and convincing read. Even so, it remains extremely sound. A miracle!" - Professor Heinz Christian Hafke, former German Bundesbank Director
