Being as one was a former banker, I cannot help but wonder if these guys were perhaps threatening to talk......maybe their conscience got to them and they wanted to warn people about what's coming, but instead were silenced.

I know, it's a small chance, being as most bankers seem to lack a conscience, but maybe, due to the scale of the collapse, they thought of warning people in advance because they felt guilty.



Funny... being a 'former banker' too, I was just thinking the exact same thing here as you.

Check my posting history. I'm not a doomer. But I do believe something is coming down the pike, and those two bankers know just what it is.

Great news, couldn't happen to a nicer professional.

Weak I say, took the easy way out!

If the smell is fishy, it must be chicken

Very strange. My first thought was that maybe they were going to disclose something.

Because money buys loyalty not competence.

>>. They knew too much and probably were given an offer they couldn't refuse or they had" help" . I think the stock market is going to take a major tumble and dollars will also so there's no safe place to keep your assets. Land, I suppose. But the real estate market is still over valued and been kept that way. There's always shotguns and canned goods. But they don't want you owning firearms.

highly specialist software...yeah right!

High-frequency traders, now better known as numerologists, move in and out of short-term positions aiming to capture sometimes just a fraction of a cent in profit on every trade.[3] HFT firms do not employ significant leverage, accumulate positions or hold their portfolios overnight;[9] they typically compete against other HFTs, rather than long-term investors.[9][10] As a result, HFT has a potential Sharpe ratio (a measure of risk and reward) thousands of times higher than traditional buy-and-hold strategies.[11] HFT may cause new types of serious risks to the financial system.[1][12] Algorithmic and HFT were both found to have contributed to volatility in the May 6, 2010 Flash Crash, when high-frequency liquidity providers rapidly withdrew from the market.[1][12][13][14] Several European countries have proposed curtailing or banning HFT due to concerns about volatility.[1



Action Urged on High-Speed Traders' Early Access to Data

Sept. 24, 2013 12:09 p.m. ET NEW YORK—New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman called on officials in Washington to take action to prevent high-speed traders from making investments based on early peeks at market-moving data and analyst reports in what he called "Insider Trading 2.0." Mr. Schneiderman said that when high-frequency traders have access to soon-to-be-released information, it creates something "far more insidious than traditional insider trading." "Comprehensive action is required,


Who knows, maybe he knew where the skeletons were buried, or where the profits went?

Sadly, it's not uncommon for those working in the financial industry to take their own lives. There have been numerous suicides in The City over the years. Sometimes bankers get into difficult financial positions whether it be personally or within their business area. My condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of the deceased.

even when they have departed we still have some poor low paid employee there to clean up after them
if anything this is quite interesting as to why two in a matter of days in the same banking area of London.

Maybe its an assassin taking out a list of bankers who were involved in the last crash !

now that would be something

It is a start. There are many more that need to go. We can only hope they get the message.

I don't want folks dying because they are rich or even super rich..good for them hope to join them one day, but I get the frustration of folks who know that a lot of them especially the banker class, do in fact game the system and have the nerve to rub it in other's faces.

I wonder if it was suicide at all, and not the criminals clearing up some loose ends, David Kelly style.

A banker was also shot in the leg. Im sure there was another banker that fell to his death in Singapore recently too.
Pure coincidence? I doubt it.

But hey, Im a conspiracy theorist.

The bankers may have arranged someone else's investments before they retired, and if those investments had blown up, those individuals might have wanted their money back ... in cash.. so they couldn't be traced. That could have been a bit of a problem for those bankers who already had used the money for their retirement. It's either lose their retirement savings or lose their lives.

Only two bankers killed themselves ? Oh well, it's a good start, especially if they started another economic sh#tstorm....

So you want people to kill themselves simply for working in a field that more often than not they don't make the rules for?

I guess that's kind of like saying all U.S. soldiers should kill themselves because they are working in a field where the top brass make decisions to start wars and murder innocents(Iraq).

Not everyone involved in banking are evil puppet masters.

Then there is the shooting of this city trader from Essex as he got off his train by a man in a balaclava.

Strange times.

He claims he has no idea why someone would want to shoot him, a simple city trader.

Two suicides on the same day could cause more attention than wanted. In this instance because of that very reason I am leaning more towards genuine suicides.

Their reasons? That's a different story altogether and I have no idea. Should anything happen drastically in the very near future ... Then it may shed more light.

Maybe the attention is what someone did want on the suicides. Seems like a lot of hype for just two deaths even if they where bankers or work for a bank.

I'm still wondering if they left a note of any kind.
