Former Deutsche Bank analyst David Liew told a Chicago jury he learned how to manipulate gold and silver prices from the two successful senior traders he admired and worked with for about three years. As Bloomberg reports, Liew "said he wanted to be a team player and make money after joining the bank's Singapore office, so he began doing "spoof" trades the way he was taught by Cedric Chanu and James Vorley" two other Deutsche Bank gold traders who were perp walked in January 2018 as the crackdown on spoofers hit.
According to Liew, "the senior traders often placed buy and sell orders they never intended to execute, a strategy intended to influence prices so they could reap illegal profits."
