Dear Friend of GATA and Gold (and Silver):

Zero Hedge tonight posts a futures broker's fascinating if anonymous account of the long history of manipulative maneuvers in the U.S. futures market, focusing on Warren Buffett's famous if short-lived corner on silver in 1997. The best futures manipulation now, the anonymous broker writes, doesn't take a million dollars from a hedge fund but rather a dollar each from a million people. Don't worry; he's not giving JPMorgan Chase and HSBC any ideas. Rather he's reading from their playbooks. His account is headlined "Second Whistleblower Emerges -- A Deep Insider's Walkthru to Silver Market Manipulation" and you can find it at Zero Hedge here:
