    huge stock market slide, just the beginning ?

    Jeeebus...someone's fat fingers fucked up last night. They sold about 4,000 contracts in error of the Short Sterling 90 day Future. About 2 billion GBP notional. In such an illiquid market, it moved 110 bps! The London Futures exchange said all trades are to stand! That's about a 5MM to 6 MM...

    Bailout Bonuses For Investment Bank Execs

    Stupid move by Paulson to change the terms of the TARP. Should have used the money as planned originally to buy the mortgage bonds that the US banks were holding. This would allow them to get the bad shit of their books, and start operating normally again. The Fed / treasury in return, would...
