Then in 2011 the Fed began illegally manipulating the market. Is this too big for you to get your brain around?
Christ, you miss the obvious even when it's a chart. Gold followed it's normal trajectory after a crisis or event of that magnitude. There was no manipulation, it was an historical norm, you are one clueless idiot.
