What's being said


    Smoke and MIrrors. These were clearly Directional Bets by JPMorgan and not true Hedging. As inferred in this excellent piece, a true Hedge has a correlation coefficient that is "Delta Neutral" i.e. no Gain and no loss. It has been admitted these Bets were designed to make a profit (and the resulting big bonuses for Traders like the London Whale). Bring back Glass Stegall and end this betting nonsense being done by the Banks at potential U.S. Taxpayer expense.
