    Of course I do, but when you kick it up to the vast amounts that happened in the crash, 100's of trillions in bets then YEAH.......There are Trillions at risk....So much so, that the Banks took 16.1 TRILLION of loans from the federal reserve to save their asses............

    So........Man didn't ya know a trillion in derivatives isn't risking a Trillion dude..................Yep. But when the bets out there are 700 TRILLION..........Then TRILLIONS ARE AT RISK.

    The facts.............Their bets crushed our economy due to the massive volumes of bets........And they couldn't pay the bets when they blew up in their faces.............

    As it will again........Again, 16.1 Trillion to save their sorry asses............as the country got hosed........We should have seized their dang assets and put them out of business........I don't believe in TOO BIG TO FAIL............and again 4 BANKS decide the markets in this country.......and our fate.............Not you Todd unless you are with them.

    If interest rates go up and they are betting they don't they lose.......The amounts of these bets are very large and the Federal Reserve keeps talking about raising the rates...........How much will be owed if a lot of these bets lose given the VAST TRILLIONS wrapped up in it.

    What if they're betting $350 trillion that they go up and $350 trillion that they go down?

    Then there are 350 TRILLION of bets that must be paid............based on the percentage of bets..........

    Can the losers pay the bets if they lose.....................And if they can't pay again do we have to bail them out again..............The losers were the American people..........AIG got loans and bail outs and then partied their little asses off when there should have been locks on their doors and they should have been looking for another place to work.

    Again, 16.1 TRILLION to bail there sorry asses out............They couldn't pay the bet..........Maybe we should have had a loan shark break their legs..............

    Because banks hedge the market risk of their derivatives portfolios, the change in GPFV was matched by a similar decline in GNFV (i.e., derivatives payables).

    Look at that, your link shows that banks have an $82 billion profit on their derivatives.

    If they don't have the assets to pay if they play and lose then they shouldn't be betting at all...............Right now they are using Margins loans to stay in the game with no ability to pay if they lose again. Same situation as in 2008 and 2000............

    But that's okay, if they lose we bail them out again.

    You misunderstand, the same banks have equal amounts betting up as down.

    Banks have margin loans? Really? How much?
    Who are they borrowing from?
