The Complete History Of JPMorgan's "Monstrous" Derivative Risks And Abuses - The Full Senate Report

Tyler Durden's picture

Curious what according to Jamie Dimon is just a "tempest in a teapot", or, alternatively, why Mr. Dimon is richer than pretty much all of you, here is the full 307 page report that explains everything, including all the events that transpired at the JPM CIO office, all the trades that led up to the "monstrous" Whale portfolio, leading to an epic prop trade failure, coupled with countless lies and misrepresentations to regulators, to investors, to the public, and to politicians, many of which under oath. Oh yes, free Jamie Dimon!

Finally, we are happy that our small contribution to exposing the catastrophic JPM TBTF prop trading behavior made its way into the report, and specifically footnote 1442.

And the consequences are???

sunaJ's picture

It's almost time to deploy the false flag, me thinks.  I'm betting it's a "foreign" cyber attack that makes all this evidence magically disappear, meanwhile mobilizing the country against, oh, let's say China.

No, it's Uzbekistan. They harbor cyber-terrorists like there's no tomorrow.

Interestingly this report paints 'the London Whale' in a pretty good light so far...could it be that the real puppet masters were elsewhere??


In calculating the $500 million “all-in” figure, Mr. Iksil repeatedly used the words “hit,” “lag,” and “loss” in connection with the three credit indices he was analyzing. Despite his analysis discussing hundreds of millions of dollars in cumulative losses, at the end of the day on March 19, the CIO reported internally an SCP daily loss of only $3 million

....then later...

Mr. Martin-Artajo: “Yeah, don’t understand your logic, mate. I just don’t understand. I’ve told Achilles. He told me that he didn’t want to show the loss until we know what we are going to do tomorrow. But it doesn’t matter. I know that you have a problem; you want to be at peace with yourself. It’s ok, Bruno, ok, it’s alright. I know that you are in a hard position here."


Finally, Mr. Iksil apologized to Mr. Martin-Artajo for creating more work for him with Ms. Drew, but also reaffirmed his belief that the CIO needed to get its marks closer to market value, stating: “we had to get closer to where the market is even if the market is wrong.”

Umm... did you mist the part where it's a Senate Report?

You were expecting truth? .... from rulers?

James_Cole's picture

I was saying that rhetorically.

Umm... did you mist the part where it's a Senate Report?

The Senate report is excellent so far, pretty much a smoking gun. How much of it will come out in soundbites tomorrow is another matter..

I was just riffing off of it. Sorry if I was insulting.

I heard Obama's going to Israel next week, and he now says Iran is "one year away" from a nuke. Something's in the air, but that could just be the stench of bullshit.

EDIT: Actually, I just read Obama and Biden will be out of the country next week at the same time. Plausible deniability, bitchez?

Iran has been 1 yr away from having nukes for the last 10 years

I don't know if leaving the country is necessary for plausible deniability...

"And the consequences are???"

Why, the bigger and longer gold and silver bull markets than even the most imaginative of us here can, or even could imagine (if we were much more imaginative than we are). Derivatives are just the means, and the big banks know it better than we do.

The consequences for JP et al - that really depends on us. Hanging? Burning on stake? Sexual capital punishments? ... Our choice.

"Sexual capital punishments?"

Does that mean that they'll be flogged in Bangkok?

McMolotov's picture

Circular saw castration, death by dildo, that sort of thing.

Seems you're familiar with the script.

johngaltfla's picture

Since JPM is the FOUNDING bank for the Federal Reserve and THE LARGEST SHAREHOLER (allegedly), they can send representatives into your house, shoot your dogs and cats, rape your wife and daughter, steal your retirement, break your legs, taser your grandmother for shits and giggles and still get a TARP grant for $100 billion.


Of course why do all the violent stuff when they can order the Federal Government to do that for them and their Rockefeller ill gotten brethren in the Eurotrash globalist banking system can skim off your earnings by assisting to manipulate the allegedly "free markets" by changing the Matrix at will.

"And the consequences are???"

Well, the US taxpayer gets screwed of course.

That's always the result, haven't you noticed?

Do you really think these bought and paid for prostitutes are actually going to do anything?  There is merely a show of "look look!  We actually are really really serious about doinng something, honest we are!"

NotApplicable's picture

Just think how bad it really is, if this is their attempt at damage control.

rich_wicks's picture

I already know how bad it is.

The nation is bankrupt.  Basically it takes in about 14% of it's official debt per year in tax revenue, and has no way to expand the revenue, meanwhile the debt has increased on average at 9.4% a year since 1971.

16.7 * (1.094^4) = 23.9 trillion dollars for the national debt by the end of Obama's presidency.

Arisu's picture

If you want consequences, start by:

* withdrawing all money from JPM/GS, if any,
* paying more attention who you're supporting with your money, directly or indirectly, when spending it, and
* helping others to get out of the system.

They have nothing to fear as long as every sheep silently supports them by not giving a shit.

newworldorder's picture

The problem are not the sheep that may keep meager amounts in their individual accounts.

The problem are the corporations  that have 401k feduciary accounts on behalf of their employees with JPM. Think of all that money under their control, without the indiividual account holder able to transfer those funds.

Arisu's picture

True words.

Still, the awareness that the sum of all financial transactions majorly forms the power structures of this world, is severely lacking. If this was otherwise, I'd have good hopes that the change of mind would eventually reach even into the decision making of industrial councils.

In the end, if this is not understood, even a violent solution might just lead to evildoer B taking the place of evildoer A, as the structual flaws will remain and again lead to the same concentration of power and wealth waiting to be taken hold of.

It's the same reason why it was a bad idea to bail out banks: the general public was deprived of a chance to truly readapt their view and thinking, so the acceleration into ruin continues. Since the government isn't interested in changing this path, the people need to do it themselves.

Haven't read  the report but does it match what has been previously presented here about JPM's derivative exposure; aka around 90 T ?

Now I'll read it...
