Note: I AM NOT calling a bottom here. Not yet, not now. I think a parellel may be drawn between the Amaranth collapse and the Barings collapse? Both led to the collapse in prices in the markets of the securities the firms were respectively active in, but after that, the market jumped sharply, though the bottoming took the Nikkei a while before it surged. Perhaps some similar opportunity may present itself in the energy market, we'll see.
