Wall Street banks, meanwhile, are focusing their attention on another commodity. After a sustained lobbying effort, the Securities and Exchange Commission late last year approved a plan that will allow JPMorgan Chase, Goldman and the Blackstone Group to buy up to 80% of the copper available on the market.

They are also stealing the marine type RV shore power cords. Just have to unplug at both ends when no one home. Lots of copper in a 50 amp cord. I work part time in an RV park and one of the publications we receive had a warning about this.
