What this means is the futures price is $1200 (as so):http://www.cmegroup.com/trading/metals/precious/gold.html
But that is only a proxy measure for the value of physical gold. In the physical market, premiums or discounts to futures are applied according to supply and demand.
Thus the $1800 figure indicates that the futures prices do not reflect true price in the physical market. And this because as you can understand from the articles posted, the precious metals prices are manipulated purposely to deter people keeping gold and silver, which are the true money as determined by God and a store of value
Genesis 13:1-2"And Abram went up out of Egypt, he and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the south. And he was very rich in possession of gold and silver."
because the (freemasonic) money masters who run the financial system behind the sceneshttp://www.themoneymasters.com/
use the fiat (paper) currency system to steal peoples labour, through inflation and deflation (deliberately contrived "booms and busts"): "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered...I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." Thomas Jefferson
Also, they suppress gold and silver to support the US$ which has an inverted relationship with gold because of excessive (inflationary) issue, to maintain the false appearance that the US economy is in good shape, when it is in fact in recession. Buy as much gold and silver as you can afford, becomes when the economic collapse comes, starting next year, the dollar and paper investments, will become massively and precious metals will retain their purchasing power.
