NEW YORK (Reuters) - A person at Goldman Sachs Group Inc, who has not been identified or charged in a broad U.S. insider-trading probe, was caught on a wiretap leaking secrets about Intel Corp and Apple Inc, a lawyer for accused former Goldman board member Rajat Gupta said in court on Friday.

Lawyer Gary Naftalis, in a heated exchange with U.S. prosecutor Reed Brodsky during a pre-trial hearing, said the Goldman person leaked confidential information about the two companies to Raj Rajaratnam, the Galleon Group hedge fund founder convicted of insider-trading charges last year.

Gupta, the best-known corporate executive accused in a sweeping prosecution of insider-trading at hedge funds in recent years, denies criminal charges that he tipped Rajaratnam with Goldman Sachs and Procter & Gamble Co secrets between 2007 and 2009. His trial is scheduled to begin in May.

"In a letter he (Brodsky) said the government had a person who provided confidential information to Raj Rajaratnam about Apple and Intel," Naftalis said. "There is also wiretap evidence, substantial evidence of another source at Goldman Sachs."

Naftalis told U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff the defense believed "there is a much more circumstantial case that person should be sitting in the box rather than us."

The judge ended the late afternoon hearing, but Brodsky and Naftalis continued to argue. Brodsky declined to comment after the hearing.

A Goldman Sachs spokesman declined immediate comment.

Goldman has been in the spotlight this week with the public resignation of employee Greg Smith, who said in a New York Times op-ed that Goldman had become "as toxic and destructive as I have ever seen it" and was a place he no longer wished to work.

A person familiar with the Gupta case said in early March that prosecutors are investigating David Loeb, a managing director of Goldman Sachs. Loeb works with technology hedge-fund employees, including an Asia-based analyst, Henry King, who is also under investigation, according to another source briefed on the case.

The sources declined to be identified because the matter is not public. Neither Loeb nor King have been accused of any wrongdoing and neither responded to emails asking for comment.

The insider-trading case has drawn in Goldman Sachs Chief Executive Lloyd Blankfein, who was interviewed under oath on February 24 as a witness according to court documents. Gupta was onetime global head of McKinsey & Co and sat on the boards of several companies.

Rajaratnam is serving an 11-year prison sentence for his conviction last May on 14 insider trading charges.
Blankfein testified for the government at Rajaratnam's trial. He is also expected to be called as a witness by the government at Gupta's trial.

The cases are USA v Gupta in the U.S. District court for the Southern District of New York No. 11-907

That's why certain brokers can charge higher commissions. We had a similar case like this in Norway a few years back.

Trading is a tough gig. People who make a lot of money, very often have access to information they shouldn't have. You've got your "chance" encounters on jogging routes, disposable cell phones or whatever floats your boat. Then you have the infrastructure bastards, always getting a peek at the order flow before the rest of us.

Making money by making binary bets on a single instrument is probably one of the hardest endeavors one can pursue. A lot of academics like to convince us that we're trading randomness, but I beg to differ. Regardless, people simply don't realize how incredible it is for people to make money by betting on future direction of a single instrument over time.

If they realized this, they would probably stop searching for a system to buy. No one has anything worth selling. If one can only average a few ES ticks a day, one would own the world within a matter of years. But I'm sure they'd rather sell it $999.

Sorry, kbit... I read a few Vendor Review posts again, and it almost took away my lust for life...
