A lawyer's open letter to a CFTC commissioner


3:50p ET Saturday, June 7, 2008

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Avery B. Goodman, a lawyer in Fort Collins, Colorado, who has a background in investment law, has written an open letter to Commissioner Bart Chilton of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, specifying how the commission's recent investigation of the silver market was mistaken and how the Comex/Nymex silver futures market is a giant manipulation and fraud that violates commodity trading law. Goodman's letter seems like complete vindication for the years-long efforts of silver market analyst Ted Butler, and you can find it at GoldSeek's companion site, SilverSeek, here:
