...By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release) Chris Powell, Secretary/Treasurer of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA), says recent bombshell evidence shows intense central bank “interventions” at the CME Group, which handles $1 quadrillion ($1,000 trillion) worth of business annually. Powell explains, “The greatest documentation that’s come out recently has been filings by the CME Group which operates the major futures exchange in the United States. They filed a letter with the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) . . . showing that central banks are receiving special volume discounts for trading futures on all the major futures exchanges, not just financial futures contracts and metals futures contracts, but even agricultural futures contracts. The CME Group’s most recent 10-K filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) lists its customers. Included in that list are governments and central banks. This is really a sensational development. Nobody can trade against central banks, they create infinite money. If central banks are secretly trading in the futures markets, there are no markets. The CME Group defended this as a matter of adding liquidity to the futures markets, but it’s liquidity in the sense of the Atlantic Ocean.”
