Do You Believe the Report on Chase’s Loss?

Recommended Posts

Do you believe the report on chase’s loss?

 

Somehow my guts feeling telling me that they have even a bigger loss but I don’t believe a word that this loss was caused by a legit bad trade, I believe they did something illegal and trying to hide behind the story of a bad trade if this loss happened on 2008/2009 I would believe that but now?...while the market is stable and one timeframe up?......No way

 

Don’t be surprised if you hear a chase manager disappear or die all of a sudden from a heart attack….

yes I do believe it. Losses can occur in stable markets, I also think that they will have more losses to come.

It is probably exactly as they say that happened. ie; we used more leverage than before, traded bigger than before, were sloppy, thought we had enough risk controls to trade bigger than before and what the hell we will get bailed out....we learnt nothing and arrogantly thought we knew better

Basically they f...d up

 

I think this article covers most of it

 

JPMorgan Chase discloses $2-billion trading loss - latimes.com

 

so no I dont believe in the conspiracy theory, but each to their own.

Fed policy is such that it encourages aggressive trading in US banks. The fed lobbied in favor of banks being allowed to continue trading derivatives in the OTC markets when Dodd Frank was being drafted. The Fed contends that US banks need to be able to take risks in these markets to be able to be competitive with other global banks.

 

Something like that.

why jail.....so far it seems that they were trading and lost money.....and it was always likely to be bigger than first reported.

Has there been issues of criminal behavior?

If they have not done anything about MF Global which stole money from customer accounts do you think they will do anything here?

It is getting closer and closer to my prediction

 

JPMorgan disclosed possible misconduct to feds ahead of earnings

6:08pm EDT

NEW YORK - In a matter of days, the two-month-old criminal investigation into a $5.8 billion trading loss at JPMorgan Chase & Co. -- known as the "London Whale" blunder -- was transformed from dormant to potentially explosive.

From what I've heard... the loss was just that... a huge F****** loss.

 

Think about it....if they had done something illegal.... wouldn't it be to like... oh, I don't know... NOT lose???

 

No one cheats to get themselves snookered by 9 billion. And besides, I heard about the trader MONTHS ago on the newsfeeds and other financial sites I check out. Was referred to as the "London Whale". In fact, it was known by the trading community before even JP MORGAN realized the situation that he was basically just a fool who was totally out of control.

 

He had been offsetting such large, sophisticated positions over the past few years in many markets, but for the last 2 years, he was profitable. immensely so (to the tune of hundereds of millions in profits that his trading personally generated). So, JPM felt to open up the floodgates this year and give Bruno and others access to more funds to do what he did best = use a hundreds of millions to make a hundered million. He had held positions into the billions before, and had come out smelling like a rose and making over $100 million last year doing it. (or was it $80 million. no matter. a LOT of money)

 

So he, AND JPM, thought they were hot stuff. Thought they knew something. Thought they could beat the market.

 

No... maybe poor oversight, or maybe even some fraud with not disclosing the loss earlier (thought they may not have been able to know how big it actually would be, due to his positions being so complex)... but no fraud in losing the money.

 

Just another couple traders who thought they could beat the market, and forgot to respect risk while doing so. Rookie mistake TBH. Only difference between most guys on this forum, and Bruno/JPM, is the number of zero's behind their losses. Nothing more, nothing less.

      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 24th April 2018.



      FX News Today

      European Outlook: Asian markets moved mostly higher overnight, following on from a positive session on Wall Street and amid ongoing USD strength with a weaker Yen underpinning a 0.75% rise in the Nikkei. The Hang Seng is up 0.94%, the CSI 300 rallied 1.75% amid speculation that the government is considering easing some policies put in to limit the credit boom. The absence of any negative news on the trade front seems to have given stock markets some breathing space and U.S. futures are also up in tandem with U.K. futures. Oil prices are also up and the front end Nymex future is trading at USD 69.14 per barrel. For now though bonds are getting a boost and stock markets are also higher, with most European futures posting gains in tandem with U.S. futures and after a positive session in Asia. Today’s calendar focuses on confidence data out of France, Germany and the U.K.. The U.K. also has public finance data and Germany auctions 2-year Schatz notes.

      FX Update: The dollar posted fresh highs against the euro and yen, and many other currencies after a bout of demand in Asia, which extending a broad rally the greenback has been seeing against for over a week now. The narrow trade-weighted USD index (DXY) posted its highest level since the first week of January, at 91.07. EURUSD logged a 10-week low at 1.2184, though euro demand has subsequently fuelled a rebound to the 1.2220 area. USDJPY lifted for a sixth consecutive session, making a 10-week high at 108.87. EURJPY is also firmer, though has so far remained below the two-month high it saw last week. The gains in USDJPY have been concomitant with the U.S. T-note yield nearing the 3.0% level, which has been generating headlines, which comes with the BoJ continuing to peg JGB 10-year yields near 0.0%. The Nikkei 225 closed 0.86% for the better, more than reversing the moderate loss seen yesterday. North Korea’s Kim said that he would be willing to accept IAEA inspections of nuclear facilities.

      Charts of the Day



      Main Macro Events Today
        German IFO – The German Ifo business confidence indicator, due Tuesday, comes in a new format this month, which includes the services sector now. For the new indicator a dip is expected to 102.8 from 103.2, and a decline in the expectations reading to 99.5 from 100.1 in the previous month. However, after the better than expected PMI readings there is a bias to the upside to the numbers. In any case, we don’t expect the April round of survey indicators to really change the outlook for the ECB, which is seen on hold this week, with officials seeing scope to leave the final decision on the future of the QE program open until July, when the risks to the global outlook may have become a bit clearer and the decision is becoming urgent. UK Public Borrowing – Expectations – at 1.6B pounds from -0.272B pounds last month. US Consumer confidence – likely declined to 126.0 in April, from March’s 127.7. US New home sales – expected to rise to 0.630 mln in April from 0.618 mln in February. Support & Resistance Levels
