Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Gold researcher Ronan Manly reports today that the withdrawal of Thomson Reuters and CME Group from the London Bullion Market Association's silver price benchmark now is being attributed to a European Commission financial regulation that is to take effect next January. Manly does not find this persuasive and wonders if Thomson Reuters and CME Group anticipate some scandal involving the LBMA. Manly's report is headlined "More Bad News for the LBMA Silver Price, but an Opportunity for Overhaul" and it's posted at Bullion Star here:
