CFTC posts video of hearing on metals futures trading

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold (and Silver):

Video of all of yesterday's hearing of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commisison on the metals futures markets has been posted at the CFTC's Internet site here:

CFTC Commissioner Bart Chilton reports that the interruption of the live video feed of GATA Chairman Bill Murphy's testimony yesterday was traced to a problem with the outside vendor handling the broadcast. Judging from comments by GATA supporters who watched the hearing via the Internet, the interruption seems to have affected those using the Windows Media Player program but not the Real Player program. Access to the audio from the hearing via telephone conference call was never interrupted.

Thanks to our friend Robert Ian, Murphy's two statements to the hearing can be viewed separately at YouTube here:
