    Why is IB stock price falling? They are crazily leveraged as the big banks, or are they?

    What the hell is going on?? :confused:
  2. Yeah 15% down today. However even Schwab was down 10% today.

    Still it doesnt look good.
  3. I hope they don't pull off a REFCO. I'm not interested in going through that again.
  4. I think EVERYTHING financial is getting hit. Brokers are no different. Look at Merrill

    Even Goldman Sachs was down heavily.
  5. maybe its the naked short rule?
  6. May get a haircut tomorrow too, 7.9 bln mkt cap is too much for a retail broker.
  7. The only question that matters is whether atticus is buying. His call back in the March scare was spot on.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see this testing the high $20s once again after the dust settles.
  8. Yeah and XXXXXX billion is too much for GE, a lightbulb maker.

    Speaking of bulbs, yours seems to be out.
  9. I bought 14k near the close, ~19.50 average. I'll be buying more tomorrow. Zero shares held before today's purchase.
  10. Has anyone thought of calling the help desk? Is the Asian desk open? I'll try the chat feature in a minute.
