TF Metals Report: The criminality of the Comex


7p ET Sunday, June 28, 2015

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The TF Metals Report's Turd Ferguson tonight powerfully echoes a point long made by silver market rigging whistleblower Ted Butler: that the monetary metals futures markets have been captured by naked short-selling speculators and completely perverted to destroy price discovery in the markets they are supposed to be serving.

Ferguson asks why this is allowed to continue. GATA answers that question with extensive documentation here:

But back in 2001 the British economist Peter Warburton figured it all out in principle long before anybody else did:

Where does it all end?

In his novel "1984," written in 1949, George Orwell wrote that it wouldn't end. "If you want a picture of the future," Orwell wrote, "imagine a boot stamping on a human face -- forever."

But somehow much of the world has held on for three decades longer than Orwell thought possible. Dissent survives, and Ferguson's -- headlined "The Criminality of the Comex" -- is posted at the TF Metals Report here:
