Gold: Trading now at $1,469 per ounce, up 0.9% from Wednesday. Dow Jones industrial average: Trading now at 12,227.90, down 0.4% from Wednesday.

Digging in to the report. After Wednesday's headlines from the Senate's financial crisis report, new details are emerging from the mammoth investigation, including allegations that Goldman Sachs traders tried to manipulate the derivatives market, and an email imagining Vanilla Ice's take on the mortgage mess.

The latest take on why regulators have not brought charges against financial executives -- this one from the New York Times -- suggests that the FBI, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Treasury Department may have quashed attempts to be more aggressive.

Another investigation. American regulators are deepening their investigation into whether Wall Street banks colluded to fix an all-important interest rate indicator.
