JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) said it plans to get out of the business of owning and trading physical commodities ranging from metals to oil, three days after a congressional panel questioned whether banks are using their ownership of raw materials to manipulate markets.

The statement also comes as JPMorgan negotiates a settlement with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission that may include a $400 million fine and other penalties, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.

Greedy Wall Street oil speculators should all be kicked out. Of course they're manipulating markets. They have no need for physical commodities.

Allowing banks to enter the field of stocks and commodities was a mistake and has led to real problems with speculation and market manipulation.

When the cards are turned over on the table and everyone can see your hand you have to hold or fold. When you have been running sliders on a game you had best fold, if you have not and have good cards you might want to hold.

Exit before you get charged and can't get 10 cents on the dollar. And end up with jail time.

Amazing. All that money was stolen from you in the form of higher gasoline and energy costs directly derived from the cited speculation and bank manipulation of markets. All this while Obama continues to smile (he must be getting a big "kick back").

And the answer was yes, they had been using borrowed money to buy and store some metals. They then held back needed supplies to drive the price up. And, just like the Hunt brothers, someone should pay damages, and / or go to jail.

I think all these fines, for whatever reason, shouldn't stay with the government, it should be be paid back to us somehow; we're the ones that got these companies their exorbitant profits.

Physical commodities owning and trading should be illegal - you should own it to use it not to hold it for higher profit.
