The news of convictions and settlements is now coming so fast that it can be hard to keep up. So today, let’s try to list them all for you.
What you first need to know is that Bullion Bank price manipulation in the precious metals has been going on for decades. And don’t think for a second that a few fines and convictions will suddenly bring all of this to an end. There’s too much easy money involved for a Banker to simply walk away. Just today, as I type, we saw this latest action in COMEX silver. No other market was moving at the time, so the only plausible explanation is a massive spoof, no doubt placed by a Bullion Bank trader.
