In the annals of silver in the modern age, there have been two well-known
instances of very large investor accumulations of the metal. First came
the purchase by the Hunt Brothers and their associates in early 1980,
followed by the purchase by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, 17 years
later. The Hunts were said to control around 100 million ounces of actual
metal (plus another 100 million ounces in long paper futures contracts),
while Berkshire held as many as 129 million ounces.

Now there is compelling evidence of a third great investment accumulation
of physical silver by none other than JPMorgan, one of the most powerful
and connected banks in the world. This accumulation can be dated from the
price peak of April 2011, after silver began what is now a near seven-year
price decline. From zero in April 2011, the amount of silver in the JPMorgan
COMEX warehouse has increased to 120 million ounces. Just about every
ounce moved into the JPMorgan COMEX warehouse over the past 7 years has
come from futures deliveries stopped (taken) by JPM in its own name. JPMorgan
took delivery of 14 million ounces in December and so far, 13 million ounces
have remained in the warehouses from which the metal was delivered. So this
means that JPMorgan now holds more than 133 million ounces of silver in COMEX
warehouses, or more than was held by the Hunt Bros or by Berkshire Hathaway
at their peaks. There was a lot more silver in the world in 1980 and 1998
than there is today, meaning that JPMorgan’s accumulation is much more of
an accomplishment than previous silver acquisitions.

Ted Butler on Jamie's Spoofing....

It appears another JPMorgan precious metals trader has pled guilty to criminal charges of spoofing. Christian Trunz resigned his position as an executive director on Tuesday, the same day he pled guilty. The Financial Times reported that Trunz, age 34 and of London, worked at JPMorgan for 11 years and Zero Hedge reported he worked at Bear Stearns prior to JPM. The Justice Department announcement indicated that Trunz learned to spoof from more senior traders and that he spoofed with the knowledge and consent of his supervisors.

As was the case with John Edmonds, who also pled guilty to criminal charges back in October, there appears to be the continuous and widespread practice of spoofing and manipulation on an institutional basis at JPMorgan. Since I have openly alleged that JPMorgan has illegally manipulated the price of silver and gold for more than a decade, I cannot say I am surprised by the recent guilty pleas. My only surprise is in what is taking so long for the Justice Department and the CFTC to boot JPMorgan's crooked butt out of the precious metals market. Did Edmonds and Trunz come into the world as incorrigible criminals with unalterable DNA that led them to engage in spoofing or were they trained as young 20-somethings to behave exactly as JPMorgan instructed? Did Edmunds and Trunz dream the scam up on their own? Not at all. JPMorgan trained, encouraged and rewarded these traders for their illegal trading activities.

Jamie Dimon - The heat is on (and it is about damn time!) Precious metals traders at JP Morgan made millions through fraudulent trades, operating a sprawling criminal conspiracy to manipulate prices, according to the US Justice Department, which appears to be signaling a crackdown. Current and former JP Morgan precious metals traders Gregg Smith, Michael Nowak, and Christopher Jordan engaged in “a massive, multiyear scheme to manipulate the market for precious metals futures contracts and defraud market participants,” Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski said in a Justice Department statement released on Monday. The DOJ claimed the bankers made millions of dollars by defrauding other market participants, including some of their own clients, in thousands of illegal trade sequences.

The trio allegedly engaged in “spoofing” on a massive scale – placing trades that they intended to cancel before execution in order to manipulate the price of gold, silver, and other precious metals – dating back over 10 years, openly discussing their illegal behavior in chat logs obtained by the prosecution and included in the indictment. They are charged with bank, wire, and commodities fraud, price manipulation and spoofing, and “conspiracy to conduct the affairs of an enterprise involved in interstate or foreign commerce through a pattern of racketeering activity” – a charge usually reserved for members of an organized crime ring. Clearly, the charges are meant to send a message – though whether that message is directed at Wall Street criminals or at Americans tired of banksters getting away with financial crime is uncertain. The Justice Department has lost the last two price manipulation cases in court. Smith and Nowak were placed on leave by JP Morgan last month, as the investigation neared its completion, while Jordan had already left for greener pastures, trading precious metals at Credit Suisse and First New York. All three had arrived at the bank through its acquisition of the failed Bear Stearns, where their illegal trading had been even more flagrant, according to the indictment. Their indictments were secured with the help of at least two former traders at the bank who had pleaded guilty in what has become a sprawling multi-bank investigation of price-rigging in the precious metals sector, ensnaring 16 people so far, according to Bloomberg. Deutsche Bank, HSBC, and UBS reached agreements with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission last year to settle claims that their traders used spoofing to manipulate precious metals futures prices – paying $30 million, $1.6 million, and $15 million, respectively – in order to avoid admitting wrongdoing and the possibility of a prolonged court battle.

Yes, the feds are frying some small fish here. The only question is, will the fibber's develop an appetite for the big gefilte fish or will they be put on a strict diet to protect those Chosen species by their bought and paid for political masters?

The US authorities were aware that three JP Morgan traders were manipulating precious metals markets from the start and intentionally “looked the other way,” Max Keiser believes. “(Negro) Eric Holder, who was attorney general under [former US President Barack] Obama when this first came to light, said that market manipulation and fraud were important for the American economy and that he, as the attorney general, could not prosecute,” the host of RT’s Keiser Report says, calling the JP Morgan fraudsters and the likes “too big to jail.” The fact that precious metals traders at JP Morgan made millions through fraudulent trades, operating a criminal conspiracy to manipulate prices called ‘spoofing’, has been an open secret for years, with Max himself describing the scheme back in 2011.

Sep.16 -- U.S. prosecutors took an unusually aggressive turn in their investigation of price fixing at JPMorgan Chase & Co., describing its precious metals trading desk as a criminal enterprise operating inside the bank for nearly a decade.

Jamie - The Heat Is On!

It's definitely a giant conspiracy, but it's no
longer a theory; after the indictment, it's more
of a criminal enterprise, disguised as a bank.

By now, it would have been hard not to have read about the Justice Department’s landmark criminal indictments against three additional precious metals traders from JPMorgan. Two of the traders charged are current employees and include the head of global metals trading. The charges involve spoofing and market manipulation that extend back for nearly a decade. In a very serious turn, the Justice Department invoked the Racketeering and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO) and referred to the pattern of wrongdoing at JPMorgan as that of a criminal enterprise. I am grateful that the new charges validate virtually everything I have alleged about JPMorgan for more than ten years to the point where a subscriber quipped that the DOJ was plagiarizing my work.

Simply put, the Justice Department leveled the most serious (and deserved) charges against traders of JPMorgan possible, but stopped short of stepping over the critical line of charging the bank itself. This is not a knock on the Justice Department, whose case has been near flawless to this point. As much as I am convinced that JPMorgan has been the prime precious metals manipulator since 2008, indicting the bank for that would likely be a death sentence for JPMorgan with incomprehensible collateral damage to the financial system and society in general. Another line that the Justice Department went right up to but didn’t cross was in not acknowledging the real crimes that JPMorgan has committed since it acquired (Jew controlled) Bear Stearns in 2008, and particularly since 2011. Sure, the many instances of spoofing cited – the entry of orders that are immediately cancelled and are solely intended to artificially move prices in a direction beneficial to the spoofer – are devoid of legitimacy and should be cracked down on. And there can be no question that the traders at JPMorgan raised the practice of spoofing to an art form unrivaled elsewhere. Even though spoofing came to be largely embedded in JPMorgan’s culture as a result of it taking over (Jew controlled) Bear Stearns (according to the DOJ), to focus exclusively on spoofing would be to miss the big picture. Spoofing came to be widely practiced at Bear Stearns out of necessity. As the largest concentrated short seller in COMEX gold and silver prior to its takeover by JPMorgan, Bear Stearns needed every dirty trading trick imaginable to maintain control of prices and steer the managed money technical funds in and out of positions. Spoofing went a long way to helping Bear Stearns manipulate silver and gold prices. In the end, however, spoofing and other dirty trading tricks weren’t enough to prevent silver and gold prices from rising sharply for the three months into March 2008, when gold hit $1000 and silver $21.

Bear Stearns’ inability to meet as much as $2 billion in margin calls on its massive short positions was enough to put it under and for JPMorgan to take up the mantle as the largest COMEX silver and gold short (along with taking on some dirty tricksters from Bear).

JPMorgan stepped seamlessly into the role of price manipulator from Bear Stearns, not missing a beat and quickly manipulating silver and gold prices lower for the rest of 2008. After a couple of years of dominating and controlling silver and gold prices, never once taking a loss, only profits, JPMorgan ran into its own Bear Stearns’ moment when silver prices surged to near $50 in April 2011. But not only did JPMorgan avoid the fate that befell Bear Stearns in 2008, it uncovered a criminally genius solution to ever facing a future run up in silver and gold prices while holding massive COMEX short positions. The solution by JPMorgan was to buy as much physical metal as necessary to offset any damage a spike in silver prices would have on paper short positions. But how could JPMorgan buy as much physical silver and gold as needed without driving prices sharply higher, thereby creating ruinous losses on its existing massive short positions?

By taking its time and deploying a variety of physical acquisition methods and, most importantly, by maintaining continuous control of prices through out-sized COMEX short positions, JPMorgan pulled off what would seem to have been impossible. It took more than eight years and more deception and dirty trading tricks than can be imagined, but at this point JPMorgan owns 850 million oz of physical silver and 25 million oz of gold.

The real crimes that JPMorgan has committed revolve around spoofing being used as a tool, but not as the end motive. If you add up all the spoofing gains alleged by the DOJ, you might come up with a few million dollars’ worth of illegal gains. I’m not suggesting that spoofing wasn’t illegal and worthy of prosecution, but that amount of money is chicken feed to JPMorgan. The real money is the many billions of dollars that JPMorgan made over the past decade in being the biggest counter-party to the managed money traders and for never having lost when adding short positions, always making only profits.

Then there are the prospective profits that will accrue to JPMorgan when silver and gold prices rise in earnest. As it stands, JPMorgan is already ahead by more than $7.5 billion on its physical gold holdings and stands to make tens of billions more when gold and silver prices take off for real. The few millions of dollars made off the spoofing charges brought by the DOJ is kid stuff and a side show.

So why doesn’t the Justice Department truly crack down on JPMorgan for the more serious crimes of extracting billions of dollars of cumulative profits in manipulative COMEX trading for a decade and the illegal accumulation of physical metal for the past 8 years? It’s not because the Justice Department (or the CFTC) is incompetent or unaware of what I just outlined; it’s because the consequences that may occur as a result of confronting JPMorgan for its real metal crimes are as serious in terms of potential financial system fallout as a nuclear war. No government official would or should ever take any action that threatens the financial well-being of tens and perhaps hundreds of millions of innocent bystanders. I couldn’t possibly be more convinced that JPMorgan is as guilty as I’ve alleged it to be and even I wouldn’t risk putting JPM out of business over it. But not pushing JPMorgan over the brink conflicts mightily with the stark reality that silver is still manipulated in price by this bank and will be until JPMorgan is disallowed from shorting on the COMEX. That’s the unfinished business for the Justice Department, namely, to thread the needle between ending the silver manipulation and sufficiently punishing but not putting JPMorgan out of business in the process. It’s no easy task and it looks to me that the DOJ is progressing as well as can be expected.

However, it still remains that the price of silver is manipulated and is lower in price than it should be due to excessive and concentrated short selling by JPMorgan and a few other large banks. Where the price should be will be determined only when the concentrated short position in COMEX silver futures is in line with other commodities in terms of world production and consumption. The DOJ, CFTC, and JPMorgan know this, but none can come out and acknowledge it. Instead, it looks like the DOJ is pressuring JPMorgan to quit its manipulative short selling ways by pressing it on
spoofing. It’s not necessary to put JPMorgan out of business to end the silver manipulation (no matter how justified that might be) and I would argue that might be the worst possible course for the Justice Department to follow. But not forcing JPMorgan to cease all new short selling in COMEX silver (and gold) might be just as bad. By its actions to date, as shown in Justice Department charging documents, JPMorgan has done nothing but abuse and undermine the integrity of our markets at every turn. To allow JPM to continue manipulating prices is unthinkable. Don’t put it out of business, just force JPMorgan to stop manipulating silver and gold prices by disallowing it to sell short.

As it turns out, we are at a particularly interesting juncture in the silver and gold markets presently. The blockbuster Justice Department announcement came as the COMEX futures market is structured with a massive number of commercial shorts, including by JPMorgan. As regular market observers know, such large commercial short positions usually presage a price decline in which the managed money traders sell and the commercials buyback short positions – the old wash, rinse and repeat manipulative COMEX cycle. Therefore, it will be interesting to see if the Justice Department and CFTC sit by and allow JPMorgan and the other big commercial shorts to rig prices lower yet again and continue to allow the most serious market crimes to occur. Or will the regulators put some meaning to their recent charges and interrupt the manipulative process? Time and price will tell, but if the regulators sit by and do nothing to disallow yet another manipulative take down of price, it will undermine the regulators and reward JPMorgan – just what we don’t need.

As far as substantiating or refuting my allegations that JPMorgan has never taken a loss in COMEX trading and has accumulated massive amounts of physical metal, the Justice Department is uniquely qualified to ascertain whether this is true. CFTC concentration data from the Commitments of Traders report prove JPMorgan has never taken a loss, only profits in COMEX futures trading. As far as JPMorgan’s massive accumulation of physical metal, the Justice Department would have no problem in quickly establishing, with a few phone calls, the many ways JPMorgan has accumulated actual metal, as I previously outlined.
