Sunday, 20 Mar 2016 11:29pm EDT 

Goldman Sachs Group Inc:Washington’s probe into the alleged rigging of the $13 trillion US Treasurys market by Wall Street banks has narrowed its focus to a handful of firms — including Goldman Sachs, The Post has learned - NY Post.In addition, European authorities have opened up their own investigation into possible Treasurys bid-rigging, sources said.Investigators in the fraud division of the Justice Department have obtained chats and e-mails from Goldman that appear to implicate the company in manipulating the price of Treasury bonds, according to two sources familiar with the investigation.Those chats and e-mails are being analyzed to determine if traders at other banks could be involved with any possible bid-rigging of US government debt, those two people said.The identities of any traders in investigators’ cross-hairs couldn’t be learned. Goldman is said to be cooperating with the probe, one person said.In June, The Post reported exclusively that Justice was in the early stages of investigating banks for rigging the price of Treasurys, the largest and most easily tradable asset in the world.Goldman is one of about 22 financial institutions that have been probed for any evidence that they may have manipulated Treasury auctions — a secretive process where banks and other financial services companies bid on the price of government debt, sources said.  Full Article
