Fire at New York City CFTC Offices Forces Temporary Relocation

A fire earlier this week in the basement of the building located at 140 Broadway in New York City has forced the temporary move of the New York office of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, which was located in the building. The office has been reloacted on a temporary basis to 201 Varick Street.

Reports on the internet state that gold and silver records of the CFTC were damaged in the fire, which would be interesting given it is just one week before the Congressional Precious Metals Manipulation hearing. However, Steve Schneider a CFTC spokesman at their Washington D.C. headquarters informs me that the damage was unrelated to the CFTC and that no CFTC documents were lost or damaged in the fire.

  1. Thank God no one got hurt. I'm glad that the business is still up and running despite the incident.
