Whether we personally agree with the bailout or not, it doesn't matter for this thread. (There are many other threads which discuss "how to" solutions to the so called crisis and pros/cons etc in the Economics forum. ) Let's try to keep this thread to trading ideas (markets, positions based on what the Gov / FED / Treasury does / expected to do / pass / doesn't pass Bailout / Rescue Plan etc. I can see a tangential trade to: Trade oil from the long side (but this is a too removed derivative) Logic suggests short USD but I don't think it'll work right away as Europe / Asia seem slowing faster now. What about interest rates / Spreads? Any other ideas? FED has been creating bubbles for decades trying to get out of one problem to fall into the next. What will be the NEXT BUBBLE to be created?
