Well, that didn’t take long.
Earlier today when we reported the stunning news that DB has decided to “turn” against the precious metals manipulation cartel by first settling a long-running silver price fixing lawsuit which in addition to “valuable monetary consideration” said it would expose the other banks’ rigging having also “agreed to provide cooperation to plaintiffs, including the production of instant messages, and other electronic communications, as part of the settlement” we said “since this is just one of many lawsuits filed over the past two years in Manhattan federal court in which investors accused banks of conspiring to rig rates or prices in financial and commodities markets, we expect that now that DB has “turned” that much more curious information about precious metals rigging will emerge, and will confirm what the “bugs” had said all along: that the precious metals market has been rigged all along.”
This was confirmed moments ago when Reuters reported that Deutsche Bank has also reached a settlement in US litigation alleging the bank conspired to fix gold prices. In other words, hours after admitting it was rigging the silver market, it did the same for gold.
Some more headlines from Reuters:
Reaches settlement in U.S. litigation alleging it conspired to fix gold prices.
Plaintiffs’ lawyers, in filing, say Deutsche Bank has signed a settlement term sheet
Plaintiffs’ lawyers say are negotiating formal settlement agreement that would be presented for judge’s approval later
Plaintiffs’ lawyers say settlement contemplates a monetary payment by Deutsche Bank
Gold settlement follows similar accord involving alleged silver price-fixing that was disclosed on Wednesday
Most importantly, as the actual settlement reveals, Deutsche has agreed that in addition to once again providing “valuable monetary consideration” which will be paid into a settlement fund, that like in the silver settlement it will provide “cooperation in pursuing claims against the remaining Defendants.”
And with that the floodgates open.
Here is the full settlement letter:
Lot’s more to be exposed here over the coming weeks. The other parties have NOT settled anything so keep an eye on HSBC, ScotiaBank and UBS.
Of course there are many more and it bring into question what was in the $1.1 Trillion worth of derivatives that Deutsche Bank was trying to pass off to Citibank, Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan.
And let’s not forget that the MAIN argument from the CFTC as to WHY they claimed that the COMEX Silver Price was not being rigged was that it matched the “Physical Price” of silver at the LBMA’s “Silver Fix.”
So now that the CFTC’s stance is NO LONGER VALID will they go back and actually prosecute any of the violators that rigged the COMEX?
Not sure if anything will come of this as far a past evil deeds but one thing is for sure…IT WILL BE MUCH HARDER TO RIG THE SILVER MARKET GOING FORWARD!!
Back up the truck because SILVER is massively undervalued due to the price rigging of the past!!
How high can the price of silver go? How about $120,000/oz?…
We will see how this all shakes out but one thing is for sure…the Banksters are being EXPOSED at just the right time!
