Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
Another market analyst has noted that something is really strange in the gold market. This time it's Merv Burak, who writes the "Technically Precious With Merv" column. Burak's commentary posted today observes:
"The total short interest is 516,832 contracts representing 51,683,200 ounces of gold, which represents $54,841,043,000 worth of short sales at Friday's closing price. WHO has that kind of money? And WHO has that amount of gold to short? Or are these just naked shorts with no gold behind it?"
