Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission will not answer questions arising from Deutsche Bank’s reported agreement to pay damages for and implicate other banks in the manipulation of the gold and silver markets, a commission spokesman said today.
Last week your secretary/treasurer put to the commission three questions about the development with Deutsche Bank:
— Does the commission have any reaction to Deutsche Bank’s admission to manipulating the gold and silver markets?
— Is the commission responding to Deutsche Bank’s admission in any way?
