    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

Just a quick reminder from IRA's Chris Whalen this morning:

BAC settlement does NOT cover "Investors’ securities and fraud claims and certain other claims"

$8.5 billion can become $85 billion with fractional reserve lending!  That is a lot of liability to cover.

From your bank accounts aka the cash reserve.

From excess reserves of BofA with the Fed.

Bank of America will be sacrificed.  That was decided long ago.  It is not a NYC bank, like JP Morgan.  It is out of Charlotte, NC.  They will be split up as the lamb at the luncheon.  The rest will say, "look how responsible we all are".  Goldman, Citi and JPM will laugh their asses off at the gullibility of the American sheep.

This is actually bullish for the market as 8.5 billion dollars sitting around doing nothing are now going to folks who might put it to use. BAC, who knows or cares.

i'm confused, 8.5 billion is a lot of money, was the market really expecting a worse result. i'm surprised that the lawsuit got this far

I think the joke here is that mortgage fraud is worth trillions of dollars, yet no one has claimed responsibility, much less gone to prison.

$8.5B used to be a lot of money...and I'm sorry to say this but...please try to keep up.

Your doing fine Richard. Being able to admit what you don't understand will keep you kicking in this business. In fact it might be more important that what you DO understand.  Also I cannot fathom why B of A is up afterhours.... uh algos? what? What don't we know?

I was just reading an great article last night linked to from Jesse's about ,among other things, how the private sector was much more effective at effecting justice for financial crimes then federal regulators and today there is this proof of the thesis. It is refreshing to see the cabal being hit where it hurts but it would be much, much better if they got a piece of mr. Orange.

If they went after Tangelo for the fraud and pump and dump schemes that would set a bad precedent.
