They're talking about Brent Crude moving down to mid to low $20's

This is going to cause an oil shock that will cripple economies around the world. If Eastern Europe crashes because of this, the rest of the world will follow shortly.

Central Banks are in trouble as well, including the Bank of England.

Yes you know about the magic 5 dollar mark. BofA has been just over 5 for a few weeks, dipped down well under. They are done. Wamu was taken over the weekend after they dipped under 5.

GM hits lowest level since 1938. I has less than one billion in market capitalization. That company is doomed.

Yes BofA bound for another merger/buyout/takeover. When Wamu went down, there had been a run for 10 days, but it was kept hush. Not untill it was bought by Chase did the media report.

Also, I am suprised that Citi has not been seized.

Shhhhh.... after the bell. You don't announce stuff like that during trading! They should have done it last Friday to take advantage of the 3-day weekend. Monday will be interesting.

I'd say so. Cash it out before they get rid of the K!

Take you money and put some in gold and buy more ammo.

Each bank has already received $45 billion in government aid in recent months and a backstop on losses on toxic assets. The aid exceeds the banks' current market value.


Where has all the money gone?


Last month, Bank of America posted its first quarterly loss in 17 years, after mounting losses at Merrill Lynch. Citigroup has lost $28.5 billion in the last 15 months, hammered by bad debts and toxic assets.


There you have it. Bad Debt and Toxic Assets! Oh...and that safe under the bed.

Usually the invisible hand waits until 3pm to intervene. According to Bloomberg, "U.S. stocks pared declines following a report that the Treasury Department will release some details of its plan to rescue the financial system next week. "

It makes no sense to me, so it must be the invisible hand. Or inside info about the govt buying the banks leaked so people are pumping and dumping BoA and Citi or something.... strange.
