Forex Litigation: The Basics:
Investors have sued 12 majors banks, accusing them of rigging prices in the foreign exchange market and defrauding investors out of millions – if not billions – of dollars. US and UK regulators are investigating the manipulation and, in many cases, have already issued fines. This program presents a basic primer on the Forex litigation – what Forex is, how the manipulation unfolded, and how investors are trying to recover from big banks for fudging the numbers.
