"J. P. Morgue” is an unflattering nickname for the banking firm JPMorgan Chase & Co. The bank is partly named after financier John Pierpont Morgan (1837-1913). “J. P. Morgue” has been cited in print in 2007 and 2008, but the nickname became popular on the Zero Hedge blog in December 2010, especially in stories about JPMorgan Chase’s role in the silver market.
JPMorgan Chase has also been nicknamed “J. P. Moron” (cited in print since at least 1997) and “JPig” (cited in print since at least 2009).

Promptly after those two cuddly bears explained how the JP Morgue is manipulating the silver market, and the xtranormal video went viral, forcing the FT to release an indemnification that “according to sources” JPM had covered a major portion of its silver short (only to subsequently end up with 90% control of other metals markets), here they are back, explaining in Part 2 of the series just what the next steps in the unwind of the biggest metal manipulation scheme will look like.
