Stock market's tanking.

I'll just win.

Again?

Yes

Shocking.

Apparently it's the German's fault.

Nar, the time to panic is a week before the regulators take panic measures, nows the time to run.

Prime time television in the US has cleared the thread of posters...Good enough for me to grab a win with no meaning or purpose.

So the markets go down when the Germans ban the naked short. Must be the hedge funds trying to make a profit.

For those that don't know a naked short is the sale of shares of a stock you don't own and your broker doesn't either in a bet that the price will go down and you can buy them back for less. Naked shorts have been banned for a long time on US markets, but only recently has there been enforcement.

A covered short, is still the sale on the bet that you can buy it back for less later, but you (or your broker) have to actually arrange to borrow shares to sell.

But keep on trucking, I say. That is until we can all see ES99's hair. Do you think it might be a Mullet?
It's good to be back amongst friends and colleagues
