  2. 'The Commodity Futures Trading Commission announced yesterday that they are looking
    very hard at possibly closing a regulatory loophole that allowed some extremely large
    commodity index funds to get around position limits.'

    How is this not news everywhere? Isn't this huge? I see it as the proverbial pin being pushed into a big fat bubble. Am I incorrect in this assumption?
  4. Not necessarily. So instead of 2000 ES eminis, you get some of those, some of the larger contract, some Russell, some Nasdaq, etc.

    And some mutual funds that mirror the S&P, and some ETFs (SPYdrs, etc.). Using some sort of leveraging, of course.

    Limit ownership of crude, and the org will get some Brent, some heating oil, some gasoline, some crack spreads, etc. etc.

    There is usually a way around everything.
