(p.189) Chapter 8 Gold and silver fixing
Holding bankers to account

Oonagh McDonald

Manchester University Press

This chapter begins with short histories of the London gold and silver markets, including the development of the gold and silver fixes. After the breaking of the LIBOR and FX scandals, suspicions soon emerged that the gold and silver markets were also being rigged. Initial investigations by the CFTC found no evidence of this, but orders would later be issued against a number of figures, notably trader David Liew, and steps would be taken to protect the system from manipulation.
