bmacs27 says... Since when is trading in futures of a commodity you do business in insider trading? Isn't that the purpose of the commodities market? Also, storing commodities for future sale at higher prices is exactly how people do business in commodities. Why do you think wheat silos exist? Cornering markets is unseemly, but most people that have tried that with any major commodity end up ruined. To pretend that GS has the clout to corner the oil market is absurd. I don't understand the complaint.
