JP Morgan (JPM) is among several suitors for MF Global's (MFGLQ.PK) 4.7% stake in the London Metals Exchange, reports say. Buying the holding would increase JP Morgan's ownership to 10.9% and alter the dynamics in the £1B ($1.6B) takeover battle for the 134-year old institution.

    Gee.....I wonder why JPM would want to increase their ownership interest in the LME?

     

    Perhaps the only reason is to continue/enhance their ability to maniuplate the gold and silver markets.

    Yeah, that's worrisome. Silver, Aluminum, Oil... manipulated to hell... reason copper is still meaningful as an analysis tool is because the market is too big to be pushed around by a JPM or GS....
