Folks think it's amusing to spread panic. Well, maybe they think they are being clever. What scenario would cause a firm to get into serious trouble , virtually overnight, when the entire operation is well capitalized and risk averse? Customers pulling funds should not be a factor, as those funds are not part of the operating capital. Now, when a stock like BSC goes from 30 to 4 (not to mention the 75 to 30 the day before), it is conceivable that fairly large losses could occur, depending on the exposure. However, it should not put any firm out of business or near it unless they seriously f&*^ up. So instead of throwing barbs at random, post verifiable facts.
