Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Silver market analyst Ted Butler has answered the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission's recent report denying manipulation of the silver market. Butler explains again the increasing concentration of the short position, notes that the commission's researchers never interviewed anyone complaining of the manipulation, and urges the commission's inspector general to investigate. You can find Butler's reply in an interview with Jim Cook of Investment Rarities that has been posted under the headline "Ted Butler Interview" at GoldSeek's companion site, SilverSeek, here:
