Deutsche Bank Confirms Silver Market Manipulation In Legal Settlement, Agrees To Expose Other Banks

Commodity Futures Trading Commission Deutsche Bank Futures market Market Manipulation None Precious Metals Reuters Term Sheet

Back in July of 2014, we reported that in an attempt to obtain if not compensation, then at least confirmation of bank manipulation in the precious metals industry, a group of silver bullion banks including Deutsche Bank, Bank of Nova Scotia and HSBC (later UBS was also added to the defendants) were accused of manipulating prices in the multi-billion dollar market.

The lawsuit, which was originally filed in a New York district court by veteran litigator J. Scott Nicholson, a resident of Washington DC, alleged that the banks, which oversee the century-old silver fix manipulated the physical and COMEX futures market since January 2007. The lawsuit subsequently received class-action status. It was the first case to target the silver fix.

Many expected that this case would never go anywhere and that the defendant banks would stonewall indefinitely: after all their legal budgets were far greater than the plaintiffs.

Which is why we were surprised to read overnight that not only has this lawsuit against precious metals manipulation not been swept away, but that the lead defendant, troulbed German bank Deutsche Bank agreed to settle the litigation over allegations it illegally conspired with Bank of Nova Scotia and HSBC Holdings Plc to fix silver prices at the expense of investors, Reuters reported citing a court filing by law firm Lowey.

Terms were not disclosed, but the accord will include a monetary payment by the German bank.

It goes without saying, that there would have been neither a settlement nor a payment if the banks had done nothing wrong.

According to Reuters, Deutsche Bank has signed a binding settlement term sheet, and is negotiating a formal settlement agreement to be submitted for approval by U.S. District Judge Valerie Caproni, who oversees the litigation. A Deutsche Bank spokeswoman declined to comment. Lawyers for the investors did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

As noted above, investors had accused Deutsche Bank, HSBC and ScotiaBank of abusing their power as three of the world's largest silver bullion banks to dictate the price of silver through a secret, once-a-day meeting known as the Silver Fix.

None of this will come as a big surprise to readers, most of whom have been aware that this took place for years.

But wait there's more.

In a curious twist, the settlement letter reveals a stunning development, namely that the former members of the manipulation cartel have turned on each other. To wit:

“In addition to valuable monetary consideration, Deutsche Bank has also agreed to provide cooperation to plaintiffs, including the production of instant messages, and other electronic communications, as part of the settlement. In Plaintiff’s estimation, the cooperation to be provided by Deutsche Bank will substantially assist Plaintiffs in the prosecution of their claims against the non-settling defendants.”
The full shocking letter can be read at link



~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
We will share more as soon as it becomes available as well as the full details of the settlement.

~First Silver, Now Gold: Deutsche Bank Admits It Also Rigged Gold Prices In Legal Settlement


Just wondering aloud, will DB go belly up before they cough up and settle? Of course, as usual, no ones going to jail. As for them providing copies if instant messages and electronic comms., yeah right.

Here she is out and about in NYC with one of Louis Vuitton's most promising new styles. This exact bag only made its debut two weeks ago on the brand's Spring 2017 runway; it won't be available to mere mortals like us for six months. It's so new, in fact, we have no idea what to call it.Better late than never, right? We got wrapped up in National Handbag Day festivities that took up much of our attention for the past week, but that doesn't mean we forgot about all the beautiful bags women carried while going to and from the shows at Paris Fashion Week Spring 2017. Au contraire!

It's Karlie Kloss, of course. Karlie is brand favorite, and she's done a ton of modeling work for Louis Vuitton. She actually saw this bag from the front row at Louis Vuitton's Spring 2017 show. This subtle style is a bit of a stylistic departure for LV, and you'll notice it is completely logo-free.Chrissy Teigen recently took this fetching new Chlo¨¦ style to dinner at Catch in LA. The Kurtis was one of our favorite new bags from the last crop of Pre-Fall designer collections.

That's great news for my lawn maintenance winnipeg business. Precious metal influence currencies so much nowadays...


Collecting my oak-smoked Salmon and dry-cured Trout direct from the smokehouse led me to a fascinating chat with the proprietor this afternoon. Judging timer children's abilities by standardised exams denies them their unique individuality and the expression of their culturally distinct identities. We might as well adopt American-style gun laws and let the EDL take over government online timer because this country's going to hell anyway.


Whilst looking for a charging spot for my electric car stopwatch it came to me. I mean, I'm not saying that I have never fallen foul of watching Big Brother, but come on, we've got to have some online stopwatch standards. Just another lie we bought from the Lib Dems.


Learn to accept, learn to endure, learn to enjoy, learn tolerance, learn to love, learn to cherish, this will make your happy life more glorious! Bad cards have to play a good result In fact, from a certain point of view, life just like playing poker touch the same. Get [url=]Wholesale Nike Air Max Shoes[/url] a good hand, do not necessarily win. Get one hand rotten card of the people, not necessarily lose. Playing poker is a need for skills and courage of the chess game, like the current more popular 'Texas' is a special need for skills and courage of the poker game. People who have played in Texas know that it is not to say that you have just started to get a good hand or bad card to determine your win or [url=]Cheap Nike Shoes Sale[/url] lose, you also need to have strong enough skill and extraordinary courage to finally win Oh. If you look at this [url=]Nike Free Haven 3.0 V4[/url] aspect, life is just no difference between playing Texas, life also need skills, life needs more courage, life needs more bad cards have to play a good result of the spirit of action.
