Barclays fined $44 million over gold price fixing

“A U.K. financial regulator has fined Barclays (BCS) $43.8 million after it accused a former trader at the bank of improperly influencing gold prices.  The British bank will be fined £26 million ($43.8 million) for failures that allowed trader Daniel James Plunkett to exploit the weaknesses in Barclays’ systems and controls to seek to influence the price of gold, which allowed the firm to ‘profit at a customer’s expense,’ according to a news release.  The fine was handed down by the Financial Conduct Authority. Separately, Plunkett was fined £95,600, or about $161,000.”
