On the day of Unemployment number release, Gold goes down.

[9 AM, Manhattan Coffee house private room. Rotund man speaks to a group of NY Bank Silver trading desk employees. Door slightly ajar.]

Printer-That-Be: Silver too. I don't want you to even see a newspaper, let along read one. Tripe! I print the money. May as well say I print the news... But you dare not.

Silver Trader: Sir... Boss, the numbers were really bad.

Printer-That-Be: [Roll eyes] Listen my young lad.

Silver Trader: The news was awful.

Printer-That-Be: [Furrow brow] What is it going to take? I script the narrative. Talking points. The news concocts their story. They sell it. How bad is it? Their writing is pitiful.

On Unemployment number days, I want gold & silver down. On important Fed meeting days, I want gold & silver down. On expiry, I want gold & silver down... Mid month for GLD & SLV... Last week of month, COMEX ®. Have you not heard of the Rubin "Strong Dollar?"

Are there any questions?

Silver Traders: [In unison] No sir!

[Rotund man fastens his briefcase. Makes hasty exit scurrying toward Liberty Street.]

[Traders guzzle last of their coffee.]
