Ted Butler: Eureka moment

Section: Daily Dispatches

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Volatile trading in silver, market-rigging opponent Ted Butler writes this week, suggests that the investment banks rigging the market are starting to compete with each other for smaller profits and that price suppression is getting more difficult.

Butler also condemns the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission for not acting against the manipulation of the silver market, though if the U.S. government is behind that manipulation, either directly or through intermediaries, such manipulation would be legal under the Gold Reserve Act, which authorizes the U.S. Treasury Department's Exchange Stabilization Fund to rig any market in the world in secret:

Butler's commentary is headlined "Eureka Moment" and it's posted at GoldSeek's companion site, SilverSeek, here:
