Financial stocks are going bananas, this isn't a free market, this is a witch hunt aganst short sellers. The kitchen sink has been thrown at the credit crisis. What other catalysts are left? Dropping money from helicopters? The Treasury has spent all its bullets and definitely used up all its goodwill. Fed still has 200 bps left of ammo, which leads us to the Japan scenario if they go below 2%. And now the SEC has one catalyst left: total ban on short selling on all stocks, not just financial. I'm sure we'll see that if the Dow breaks 10,000. These guys are Marxist clowns dressed up as capitalists. I would not trust any of these prices for the next few days, they have truly been manipulated.
