Gene Arensberg : Bullion Banks now least short in gold since 2008 | GATA THE GATA DISPATCH

Gene Arensberg: Bullion banks now least short in gold since 2008

Submitted by cpowell on 10:53AM ET Saturday, January 22, 2011. Section: Daily Dispatches 11a PT Saturday, January 22, 2011
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
Gene Arensberg writes today at the Got Gold Report that there's a whole lotta short-covering going on in gold. Arensberg writes: "The largest, best-funded, and presumably the best-informed large hedgers and short sellers of Comex gold futures have become the least confident in lower gold prices since the Thanksgiving from Hell in 2008." Arensberg's analysis is headlined "Unusual COT Action: Bullion Banks Cover Shorts, Swap Dealers Hammer Gold" and you can find it at the Got Gold Report here:
