I think they should stop arresting people and make a new rule – Nothing less than a High School diploma before anyone can open an account.

And instead of real estate collateral, maybe ask for BODY PARTS ? Like healthy kidneys ?

Otherwise we all just end up with stuff like this.




Bohemian Rhapsody was playing in my head for the whole of yesterday as I thought of banana trader.

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality;
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see

I’m just a poor boy, I need no sympathy
Because I’m easy come, easy go
Little high, little low
Anyway the wind blows, doesn’t really matter to me,
to me

Bonds being dumped with Chinese HY bonds falling 1.35% yesterday, as reported by Bloomberg.

Hang Seng’s revival today has cancelled all her losses of yesterday but I suspect we will hit a wall soon because there is a lot of clean up to do in the days ahead with those margin calls.

Such Earthquake-like corrections usually come with a Aftershocks !

Defaults, scandals and such should be good for investors who will finally follow the Chinese policy makers’ preference for a “slow bull, not mad cow” market. http://blogs.wsj.com/chinarealtime/2015/04/27/in-stock-market-stampede-china-welcomes-slow-bulls-and-mad-cows/

I would keep those pennies handy to buy on selling frenzies.
