How Much Will The Market Take Up?

Recommended Posts

How much can the markets take up? This is £3.6bn that the banks have to cough up, and is very bad for their balance sheets. They can't swap unwanted HBOS shares with the BoE for cash!

Also, just how much capacity do investors have to come up with the cash? I can see those shares (and others like B&B) sitting around on balance sheets for ages.

Could be a big (bad) day tomorrow for those reasons.
