German banking regulator Bafin has demanded documents from Deutsche Bank as part of a probe into suspected manipulation of benchmark gold and silver prices by banks, it was reported. Bafin has questioned the bank's staff during several on-site inspections over the past few months. Bafin on Friday repeated that besides Libor and Euribor, it has been looking at other benchmark setting processes like gold and silver price fixings at individual banks. "The examinations were launched several months ago and are still ongoing," a Bafin spokesman said.
