    this is not selling based on credit concerns. my freaking ass that people are worried after losses after bailout of this size and liquidity returning to the housing market. its profit taking and buy the rumor and sell the fact
  3. This overnight, over the weekend games have been going on all year long. The financials have been sold everytime.

    Think of the DEBT this country is taking on, Bush has really put us in hock.

    Fannie, Freddie Credit-Default Swaps May Be Settled (Update3)

    Sept. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Investors may be forced to settle contracts protecting more than $1.4 trillion of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac bonds against default after the U.S. seized control of the companies in a bid to bolster the housing market.

    Thirteen ``major'' dealers of credit-default swaps agreed ``unanimously'' that the rescue constitutes a credit event triggering payment or delivery of the companies' bonds, the International Swaps and Derivatives Association said in a memo obtained by Bloomberg News today. Market makers for the privately traded contracts will discuss how to settle them in a conference call at 11 a.m. in New York, the document said.
