JP Morgan Metals Manipulation Probe Continues

This news deserves its own thread.

As you likely know, a major trader at JP Morgan has been convicted of precious metals price manipulation through spoofing and other techniques. This person is now cooperating with prosecutors in an attempt to lessen his prison sentence.

JPM has attempted to sheepdip this person as a "low-level trader" but, in fact, he was a full vice president at the firm and has testified that his managers and superiors knew of and encouraged his actions. That his sentencing continues to be delayed is a sure sign that prosecutors are pleased with the what he had divulged thus far.

In today's latest news, JP Morgan finally acknowledges that "various authorities are conducting investigations". See below:

This story is far from over and it will continue to evolve through the year. Please be sure to read the full link here:

Finally

I love today's rebound but I am not hopeful that JPM can be made to stop manipulating the metals. There is too much money to be made by doing so. I suspect that they will say they are only working for the PPT and the BIS etc. to suppress the price of the precious metals.

Sales tax.

My favorite dealers JM Bullion and SD Bullion are both now charging sales tax for states who collect it. So I checked APMEX. Same thing. Very disappointing. I'm willing to pay a higher premium to other dealers rather than give a penny to the government. If anyone knows of dealers who don't charge sales tax on online sales, please let me know.

JPM manipulation? Nah!

But if true, good thing we have a "manipulation analyst" in our corner.

Sullivan & Cromwell’s Rodge Cohen: The Untold Story of the...

Fed’s $29 Trillion Bailout

Mrcic posted this link in the previous thread. Try and ponder the implications. It's mind blowing.

http://wallstreetonparade.com/2019/05/sullivan-cromwells-rodge-cohen-the...

And here's the whopper...

"Which might explain why the former Chairman of the Fed, Ben Bernanke, the former U.S. Treasury Secretary a/k/a the former Chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs Hank Paulson, and the former President of the New York Fed, Tim Geithner, who oversaw the majority of that $29 trillion binge, are currently on a roadshow with a pitchbook to the major media outlets portraying their actions as heroic firefighters during the crisis. Oh, and by the way, they want to remove the restraints that the Dodd-Frank financial reform legislation placed on the Fed’s 13(3) ability to throw money at Wall Street in the next crisis ".

I was thinking about Eric Sprott's comments (and yours) about Chilton and did not see this thread. I should have put it in this thread as it is relevant. See the latest thread (BLSBS Madness) concerning Chilton and my thoughts on the Silver Investigation and Chilton's comments of "insufficiency of evidence".
