    interesting story
    seems to be priced in based on the ES price action

    what a surprise...the guys at UBS in the know "pre positioned" themselves ahead of the news release
    I wonder if that might explain some of the closing weakness in ES on Wednesday

  4. The UBS bank reputation among clients after such small loss can only rise.

    Not sure if the risk managers, product controllers, middle offices, back offices and the other 100 people in charge of risk control in banks are less naive that the average ET to let such a loss happening... and don't get me wrong I've been working in a Top Tier Investment Bank ...
