Cafferty Faucher LLP Files Class Action Lawsuit against JPMorgan and HSBC Alleging Manipulation of Silver Bar Financial Products

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cafferty Faucher LLP (www.caffertyfaucher.com) filed a lawsuit on behalf of a class that includes purchasers and sellers of the iShares Silver Trust (NYSE-Arca “SLV”) and the ETF Securities Ltd. Silver Trust (NYSE-Arca “SIVR”) during the period March 1, 2008 through the present.

The lawsuit alleges that JPMorgan, the custodian of silver backing SLV securities and the sub-custodian of silver backing SIVR securities, and HSBC, the custodian of silver backing the SIVR securities, manipulated and suppressed the price of silver bar financial products, including SLV and SIVR, in violation of Section 9 of the Securities Exchange Act.

The case is also brought on behalf of investors who purchased or sold CME Group Inc’s “COMEX” silver futures or options contracts which are traded electronically through the Chicago-based “GLOBEX” platform and through COMEX. On behalf of these investors, the lawsuit alleges violations of the anti-manipulation provisions of the Commodity Exchange Act.

In addition to the claims under the anti-manipulation provisions of the Securities Exchange Act and the Commodity Exchange Act, the lawsuit also alleges that defendants violated federal antitrust law.

Some idiot on Bubblevision this morning was calling for a 1.36 Euro. Apparently he doesn't read ZH or watch the ECB. I think we'll see 120 again before we see 1.36.

And I think we'll see Deutschemarks re-introduced before we see Germany bail out Spain and Italy.

IF (perhaps a big IF) the Fed put money into those institutions and those funds were not disclosed, the Fed officers who did this and the bank officers who received the money are both in violation of Securities laws, as a 13D should have been filed.

You can dislike what he is doing, but from a legal standpoint, he has a legitimate case should he choose to pursue it in a legitimate way (not what he is doing).

Fed policy will kill the value of any dollar 'profits' you might get. When it comes time to cash in the chips the cost structure of living and doing business will eat your profit before lunch. And gold will soar in that environment, preserving people's wealth, savings, and anything they can scrape together.

There is real demand coming, and I mean real big demand.


The real debt sponges are flying in from above. They value debt from the planet Earth and will pay a premium for it. The FED has know this for years and have been huge sellers to them but they will not announce it because they do not want panic from Main St.

John Urwin Desribes how in 1957 he was recruited into an elite hit squad in the British Military, called The Sixteen. He describes how this group fought the evils of the Illuminati, and he now makes a call for others to speak out as he is convinced we are in serious trouble, and major False Flag operations are soon to hit us.
On his final mission in 1959 he desribes how he saw two football field sized Flying saucers, of German design take off from the Jordanian desert near Jaraba, and how they recovered a secret box containing ET or holographic glass, ancient high technology, to thwart the Illuminati's plans of trying to get the Aliens to buy US Debt.
