Re: Market cap up there, manipulation by the Funds?
Hi Hubblerock. I was not watching the market very closely yesterday so thank you for sharing. Usually such bids are “spoof” and are closely watched by Supervision. I agree that they are not commercial but I don’t think that they are funds. In considering those that have been caught and fined in the past, both by the exchange and by the CFTC, I recall that individual traders and institutional traders are involved in coffee but mostly in metals and forex. They try to influence the market but in my opinion it is not an effective strategy.
