Caesar Bryan – Suspicious $1.5 Billion Gold Dump & Bank Runs
April 13, 2012
With continued volatility in gold and silver, today King World News interviewed 25 year veteran Caesar Bryan. Gabelli & Company has over $31 billion under management and Caesar Bryan has managed the gold fund since its inception in 1994. Caesar told KWN the European banking system is stil on fire, and we are now seeing bank runs in both Spain and Italy. He also stated that today’s trading at the end of the day in gold was very “odd.” Here is what Caesar had to say about the situation: “We had been having a recovery in the price of gold recently, but then gold was taken down around 1:15 pm today. There was quite significant volume in the last 15 minutes, before the COMEX closed.”
Caesar Bryan continues:
“There were 10,000 contracts traded, which is something like $1.5 billion, and gold fell precipitously, from about $1,665 to about $1,650. This is very odd trading on a Friday afternoon when there was no other discernible movement in other markets.
This made for a disappointing end to the week, but the backdrop for gold is still very solid. However, for investors, it’s hard to ignore the day to day movements.
As you know, we have been talking about what is going on in Europe. The latest news is that tension remains high in places like Spain….
