News Coverage of the Maguire ‘Whistleblower’ Car Accident in the States

I received this news story from an astute reader.

I also asked a GATA news source why Mr. Maguire had not discussed the accident in his interview with King World News. He is reported to be ‘very concerned’ for his safety and is reluctant to discuss this aspect of his coming forward. I think this is understandable. It must be very hard to do this sort of thing.

The mainstream media in the US is very slow to pursue investigative pieces, with a few notable exceptions. It has in too many cases become an extension of the corporations that own the once proud newsrooms.

Here also is a new interview by Eric King of King World News with Chris Powell, Adrian Douglas, and Bill Murphy on this and related topics.

JPMorgan ‘chase’ story in UK
By MICHAEL GRAY
March 29, 2010

A London-based precious-metals trader who had accused JPMorgan Chase of manipulating the gold and silver markets was involved in a bizarre weekend car accident that triggered a police chase before the suspect was nabbed.

Andrew Maguire, a metals trader at the London Bullion Market Association, and his wife were traveling in their car when a second car coming out of a side street struck their vehicle. That car then hit two more vehicles before fleeing.

London cops using helicopters and patrol cars chased the hit-and-run driver before nabbing that person, whose name has not been released by authorities.

Maguire and his wife were released from the hospital yesterday. London police would not comment on the accident investigation.

The hit and run occurred after Maguire’s name came to light Thursday during a US Commodities Futures Trading Commission hearing on limiting gold and silver positions held by large market participants in order to prevent manipulation.

During the hearing, Maguire was identified as having sent e-mails to Bart Chilton, a CFTC commissioner, and Eliud Ramirez, head of the commission’s enforcement division, alleging that JPMorgan had used its massive metals positions to manipulate the commodities markets.

In one e-mail, Maguire wrote, "It is common knowledge here in London among the metals traders that it is JPM’s intent to flush out and cover as many shorts as possible prior to any discussion in March about position limits," referring to last week’s CFTC hearings.

Eric King Follow Up Interview With GATA On The Trail Of The Biggest Gold Manipulation Story Disclosed

The Andrew Maguire LBMA whistleblower story just refuses to go away, and it is about time someone from the mainstream media (yes, we know you read us constantly) finally picked up on this massive expose about the decades of fraud and manipulation in the commodities market, with a focus on gold and silver. Don’t worry, the Wall Street ad revenue sources you may lose from highlighting this "must read" story will be more than offset by the increased readership you will gain.

Today we have the latest segment in this saga, courtesy once again of Eric King who interviews GATA members Bill Murphy, Chris Powell and Adrian Douglas. As is pointed out in the interview, "The CFTC, on the public record, has been shown to have known in advance of massive market manipulation, and have done nothing." Isn’t this the same reason why Markopolos called SEC the biggest bunch of idiots in existence vis-a-vis their performance in the Madoff debacle? It is time someone big blew this up finally. Perhaps this will explain why it never gets mainstream attention: "JPMorgan chase is an agency of the US government, rigs the markets, and undertakes market manipulation." To all our readers: this is yet another "must hear" interview.

From King World News: 

In this interview with GATA we continue the saga after just having interviewed Andrew Maguire, the whistleblower out of London. This gives a short and long-term view down the rabbit hole through the eyes of 3 of the GATA board members.  GATA was so heavily involved not only in breaking the news at the CFTC meeting about the the metals manipulation but also at the same time quite possibly uncovering the largest fraud in history. The Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee was organized in January 1999 to advocate and undertake litigation against illegal collusion to control the price and supply of gold and related financial securities. The committee arose from essays by Bill Murphy, a financial commentator, and by Chris Powell, a

You Don’t Mess With The LBMA – Assassination Attempt On Silver Market Manipulation Whistleblower?

You Don’t Mess With The LBMA – Assassination Attempt On Silver Market Manipulation Whistleblower?

Courtesy of Zero Hedge 

The latest development in Silvergate, in which whistleblower Andrew Maguire has exposed the manipulation details in the London commodity market, is straight out of a John Le Carre or Ian Flemming novel: an assassination attempt. From GATA:

London metals trader Andrew Maguire, who warned an investigator for the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission in advance about a gold and silver market manipulation to be undertaken by traders for JPMorgan Chase in February and whose whistleblowing was publicized by GATA at Thursday’s CFTC hearing on metals futures trading was injured along with his wife the next day when their car was struck by a hit-and-run driver in the London area.

According to GATA’s contact with Maguire, board member Adrian Douglas, Maguire and his wife were admitted to a hospital overnight and released today and are expected to recover fully.

Maguire told Douglas by telephone today that his car was struck by a car careening out of a side road. When a pedestrian who witnessed the crash tried to block the other driver’s escape, the other driver accelerated at the pedestrian, causing him to jump out of the way to avoid being hit. The other driver’s car then struck two other cars in escaping. But the other driver was caught by police after a chase in which police helicopters were summoned.

We’ll convey more information about the incident as it becomes available.

We are in process of corroborating this story with independent sources. It will be interesting to see what information the escapee driver discloses and whether this was just a case of a little extra fish and chips and extra, extra beer. In the meantime, the battle against the big banks and the LBMA might have just gotten a little more personal.

More Smoke from the Federal Reserve On Their Opaque Operations in the Markets

More Smoke from the Federal Reserve On Their Opaque Operations in the Markets

smoke Pictures, Images and Photos

Lots of smoke, but not quite a smoking gun, since the Fed representatives can always come back and claim that they were speaking hypothetically, and that the information was being withheld IF it indeed exist.

This highlights the problem of proving something wherein another party has the ability to stonewall and hide their operations. If the Fed was more transparent, then this would not be an issue.

I have been looking into this issue for some time, and have concluded that there is indeed plenty of smokescreens coming out of the Fed on a number of fronts. Some seem legitimate, but many do not. The Fed seems to want its independence, but also a position of power that is integration to the political and administrative policies of the US, more properly the domain of the public representatives.

Perhaps it is more or less innocent, but it does highlight how utterly inappropriate the Fed will be as a choice for a ‘super regulator’ of the financial system, seeming accountable and forthcoming only when they feel like it.

If this proves to be true, Greenspan is guilty of lying in his testimony to Congress, and most likely Bernanke as well. The Fed would also be implicated in expropriating US assets for its own purposes of rigging public markets far beyond their charter, since gold is hardly a foreign currency these days. They may as well be manipulating the price of oil or corn or wheat to suit their financial engineering. The permission to swap gold which belongs, not to the Fed, but to the American people via the Treasury, can only be granted by Congress.

I have also concluded that the Obama team wishes to broaden the powers of the Fed because this provides additional centralized and opaque power to the federal government. Both the Democrats and Republicans in the US seem to favor this.

As a semi-private organization, owing its allegiance both to the government, but even moreso to its private owners, the Fed should not and cannot be seriously considered for broader powers over more markets. They are hopelessly conflicted in their various agendas and loyalties already.

Are the U.S. Stock Market Indices Facing Double Top Deja Vu?

Stock market volatility has turned higher as the month of October has wore on. And now that we are just one week away from the elections, it appears that investors are showing their uncertainty through the price action on the major U.S. stock market indices.

In today’s chart 2-pack, we look at “weekly” charts of the Nasdaq Composite and S&P 500 Index. Though not the same, they have a similar developing pattern. Perhaps one that leads to a 15%+ decline back in 2018.

Could History Be Repeating Itself?

Just as we saw in 2018, momentum is forming a bearish divergence this year at (1). Tha...

COVID-19 Forces More Than Half of Asset Management Firms to Accelerate Adoption of Digital Marketing Technology

By Jacob Wolinsky. Originally published at ValueWalk.

There is no doubt that the use of technology to support client engagement initiatives brings both opportunities and threats but this has been brought into sharp focus this year with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The crisis has brought to the fore the need for firms to enable flexibility in client engagement – the expectation that providers will communicate to clients on their terms, at their speed and frequency and on their preferred channels, is now a given. This is even more critical when clients are experiencing unparalleled anxiety from both market conditions and their own personal circumstances.

Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling System Suggests Market Peak May Be Near

Our Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling system is suggesting a moderate price peak may be already setting up in the NASDAQ while the Dow Jones, S&P500, and Transportation Index continue to rally beyond the projected Fibonacci Price Expansion Levels.  This indicates that capital may be shifting away from the already lofty Technology sector and into Basic Materials, Financials, Energy, Consumer Staples, Utilities, as well as other sectors.

This type of a structural market shift indicates a move away from speculation and towards Blue Chip returns. It suggests traders and investors are expecting the US consumer to come back strong (or at least hold up the market at...
