After manipulating the silver price for many years, it recently came to light that Deutsche Bank has also manipulated the gold price.

Deutsche Bank was sued because of an alleged manipulation of the Gold Fix and the troubled German bank decided to settle the case.

It is a mere attempt to justify outlandish conspiracy theories.
