Gold Manipulators Busted After Zero Hedge Report On Flagrant Gold Spoofing
And while we are delighted that yet one more alleged case of gold manipulation is now confirmed, we are curious if the CME, CFTC and DOJ will also prosecute instances of gold manipulation when the ultimate outcome is the price of gold going lower instead of higher, such as the one documented in "Vicious Gold Slamdown Breaks Gold Market For 20 Seconds", "Stop Logic" Gold Slam Was So Furious It Shut Down CME Trading Again" and on countless other occasions most of which have been duly documented on this website.

Finally, we wonder: will the CME, CFTC, DOJ, and FBI pursue as promptly all those instances of constant S&P 500 manipulation and spoofing we profiled over the past week in particular, and over the past 6 years in general? Or was this merely another "Sarao" case when several (non-Caucasian) traders are scapegoated by the regulators, with the naive expectation that investors will suddenly assume the market - in this case that of gold - is no longer rigged?
