It took the SEC months to investigate and finally come up with a reason for the flash crash. Do you really think they have the trained resources and personnel to keep up with naked shorting, especially by high-speed traders who place millions of orders a day -- most of which are cancelled to stymie the trading systems?
Silver is being "played" by the hedgies and hi-rollers, just as it has been so many times in the past.
Are governmental agencies/watchdogs only there to protect those elites who want to steal from the people through dollar devaluation? Why aren't regulations against naked shorting being enforced? or are they? Why are 99% of the people struggling while a select few get to continue fleecing the 99%? or are laws and rules enforced evenhandedly? Just asking.
