July will be the month for FAZ fireworks.  Should be pretty explosive.

FAZ explodes, then TZA will be even more explosive.  Get the benifit of financials tanking along with the Russell 2000.

“We’re still working to try to minimize the damage the amendment would do to bank-holding company capital,” said Mark Tenhundfeld, executive vice president of the American Bankers Association, which predicts the rule could force banks to raise as much as $130 billion of new capital or curtail lending.

In other words, this probability this amendment gets removed is 100%.

How Cross Selling Of CDOs Between Banks "Created A Big Ponzi Scheme"

So, what does cross selling of US equities between megabanks create?

"Oh, it's not a ponzi scheme!  We're just creating liquidity in the market...yeah, that's it!"

Record the high powered workstations of HFT shops playing 500 games of Pong in parallel, average the position of the ball, rotate 90degrees, and you get the SPX500 chart. 

Try it, it works. Denninger can kiss my ass, that's technical analysis baby

Oh, say can you see Wall Street’s theft in plain sight
With the debt that we sow while cash register’s beeping
Whose broad lies and false flags thru the congressman’s lies,
O’er the market we watched was so rigged just for stealing
And the derivatives there, the bombs burst everywhere,
Gave proof through the night that our poverty is here.
Oh, say is the false left-right paradigm still there
O’er the land of the thief and the home of the slave

I do wonder about the banks and the XLF

Banks like wells. . .seem to be undercapitalized,but still insist they will earn their way out

what if shit hits the fan b4 they are able to earn their way out in time?

Hope buffet has enough capital then to bail out GS plus Wells

or perhaps they will both merge. . .

And CNBC wonders why Bloomberg kicks its ass, maybe because they do actual journalism?  On second thought, they are probably aware of their irrelevance...

"Quantitative finance" is not "complex". It's simpler than, say, high school physics.

The better word is "confusing". And isn't it exactly what it was designed to be? Undertake as much risk as you can while pretending you don't.

Good article.

The amount of shit that JPM pulled with CDO subprimes is a lot more than they've been on the hook for recently.
