[This analysis shows that JPM cannot deliver that much gold. It was a move to plunge the price, but the inability to deliver could destroy the bank – unless it can quickly re-purchase at greatly reduced prices. That may have been the strategy to plunge the price in the first place, but it is extremely risky.
