At the Canadian Investor Conference, held in Vancouver from June 1 to 2, the Investing News Network had the chance to speak with Ed Steer of Casey Research and the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA).

The newsletter writer expressed his disappointment in silver’s performance over the past six months, suggesting that several factors relating to the nature of the COMEX trading system may have contributed to the drop.

When asked about the imminent stoppage of the London silver fix, Steer said that he is glad to see it go, noting that he sees no reason why silver should be traded with the fix.
