  • Mixed messages, some to be saved, some not. Is this sustainable in the current climate? Will it encourage failing institutions to hang on in the hope of taxpayer’s aid?

  • Change its kit… that made me laugh. Still, I’m selling my gold ETF and going back to rolling spread bets after the heads up from someone on this site.

    I think they’re trying to send the markets a message: we’re not going to bail out everyone, only the big important guys, This makes sense really. Up until this point the markets (and everyone else) thought that the Fed/US government would just keep bailing out regardless of the consequences.

  • The loan is expected to be repaid by the sale of the company’s assets. If it’s that easy why didn’t the Fed do the same for the others? What about the liabilities?
