A few weeks ago I told my loyal readers that big news would be coming out of the CFTC back doors. Well, it looks like someone was turned again. This should NOT be shocking, silver longs can only one day HOPE justice is served, position limits are implemented, and we become wealthy beyond imagination. But not so fast. That would mean someone takes the hit (JP et al), and surely they will not just allow themselves to loose a few hundred billion overnight.
"The CFTC has already missed a deadline in the Dodd-Frank law to finalize position limits. Three of the five commissioners at the CFTC, including one Democrat, have expressed skepticism that position limits can prevent large run-ups in prices.
CFTC Chairman Gary Gensler had hoped to get the measure approved in September, but now it is expected to be pushed into early October."
