It is with heavy hearts that we report that GATA member, and gold and silver champion Adrian Douglas passed away Thursday, succumbing to a year year battle with cancer.
GATA’s statement on Douglas’ passing is below:
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
GATA Board of Directors member Adrian Douglas, whose statistical research documented gold and silver market rigging and whose testimony to the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission in March 2010 pushed the issue onto the national stage, died Thursday at home in Arizona after heroically battling cancer for almost two years.
Douglas’ contributions in support of fair and transparent markets and limited and accountable government were profound and perhaps best exemplified by these reports posted at GATA’s Internet site and his own, MarketForceAnalysis.com:
GATA hopes to publish obituary and funeral information soon and will rededicate itself to the ideals we shared.
