Gene Arensberg: Silver sucker-punched by two U.S. banks

Resource Investor today posted a special "Got Gold Report" by Gene Arensberg in which he credits silver market analyst Ted Butler for exposing the recent vast downward manipulation of the silver market by two unidentified U.S. banks. Arensberg expects the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to take action against these banks. He writes:

"It will not be surprising at all if we learn that these two U.S. banks are taken to task by regulators for their actions. It will be even less surprising to learn that they have become the target of multi-billion-dollar class-action lawsuits by hungry lawyers representing silver investors everywhere."

Maybe U.S. financial market regulators will do their job right for once, but we'd find it easier to believe in the tooth fairy.
