Former CFTC Commissioner Bart Chilton's last interview recalled


7:40p ET Wednesday, May 1, 2019

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Chris Marcus of Arcadia Economics today recounts the interview he got from the former commissioner of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Bart Chilton, just before Chilton's death. In that interview Chilton acknowledged that JPMorganChase assumed the big silver futures short position of Bear Stearns upon the latter's collapse, that JPMorganChase exceeded the temporary exemption it was granted by the commission on silver position limits, and that he thought the CFTC compiled plenty of evidence of manipulation of the silver market, even as experts advised the commission that the evidence was not sufficient to prosecute.

Marcus' commentary is headlined "In Memory of Bart Chilton" and it's posted at Arcadia Economics here:
