Curse of the London Gold Fix strikes again as SocGen abandons ship

by Ronan Manly, BullionStar:

News last week from the LBMA that French bank Societe Generale (SocGen) has resigned as a market maker for gold and silver continues an exodus from the London bullion markets that has included such former heavyweight bullion banks as Barclays, Deutsche Bank, Mitsui and Credit Suisse.

Indeed, SocGen, Deutsche Bank and Barclays were three of the five members of the infamous London Gold Fix which was hurriedly buried by the LBMA in 2015, so now an incredible 60% of that gold fixing clique have stepped back from the shadowy world of the London paper gold and paper silver markets.
