JPMorgan Will Pay Nearly $1B Settlement for Market Manipulation

JPMorgan is set to pay nearly $1 billion to settle with US authorities investigating whether the bank manipulated the metals and Treasury markets, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday.

The sum would set a record for spoofing-related settlements and could be announced as soon as this week, sources familiar with the matter told Bloomberg. The payment would be in line with other market-manipulation sanctions but surpass previous spoofing fines.
