  • New rules forces largest banks to hold another $68B in capital [View news story]
    Remember, the real threat to investors in 2008-2009 was not those holding stocks, bonds or real estate...it was holding cash in the form of "safe" money market funds. By many accounts, the treasury/FED had to step in to protect these so-called safe caches. According to Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, that was his primary reason for holding a weekend meeting with bankers and Dr. BB. Also know that this was a "cookie cutter" meeting of 1907 library meeting organized by JP Morgan himself. JP Morgan locked bankers in his library to sort it out while he played solitaire. The 1907 panic was impetus for creation of Federal Reserve on Jeckyll Island.

    Does anyone even know who Jack Lew is? (hint)...he is the silent one compared with recent persons holding the post.

    By the way, Clayton...do you have phone numbers or contacts? I do. Again, just getting warmed up here. No threat. Just facts.

    Clayton...that doesn't make one or the other okay with me. I'm taking a stand here. Just gettin' warmed up. It would be nice if others do the same. Just saying.

    Clayton. You offer credibility. I can only suppose this "tactic" is widespread. It's a danger to contractual arrangements that are either outright "thievery" or at best "financial engineering, at least into the next quarter".

    I tried to tell them politely, now it's a matter of will.

    Just to save you the time, the phone number to their ethics department is:

    I urge those that have had similar experiences to contact the ethics department. They usually only deal with issues related to employees. They are sub-contracted through the company, but they did receive my complaint and I did get a reply through that venue. The reply I received was talk at this point, just the same, best venue. Good Luck.

    Perhaps there are others that have similar experiences. If not, well...then it's a matter of free time. I never had much. Now I do.

    I have forwarded my complaints to several persons within the company, including the ethics department. They can be found here:

    I can only speculate that my comments here will shake things up in this company, and that what I consider to be deceptive sales tactics will stop.

    Heh...has anyone had the pleasure of dealing with them on the telephone? I have 3 documented experiences where they promised a price for service wherein I was overcharged after the fact over a short period of 4 months. In other words, they promised a price over the telephone (starting the day of telephone call) and then the bill comes in at double the price agreed to. Remember, this happened to me over 3 very well documented phone calls. I discontinued my service two weeks ago. They promised I would not be further charged...am awaiting next bill. Strictly the facts folks, and my word is my bond.

    If I'm going to post my "vinaigrettes" on lousy reporting, best I applaud good reporting. Really, well done!

    Did I miss something? I was trading $GLD intraday. Looking at a 10 day chart, I don't see today's price action as remarkable.
