The Return of Precious Metals Leasing

June 04, 2020

Of course, I am sending this article to JPMorgan, as well as to the key officials at the CFTC and CME Group, but I also intend to make this article public so as to openly go on the record. I am torn about accepting payment from private subscribers while turning around and making public what you paid for, but I do feel it is in everyone’s best interest to let all of this see the light of day.
