    These banks have bank to bank loans all the time.......

    OMG! Hilarious! They have trillions in excess reserves and you think they're borrowing from each other? For margin?
    You really should stop.

    Yeah, margin loans by individuals are awful.

    But your stupid claim was about banks taking out margin loans. LOL!

    So Investment banks don't trade and they don't have access to their Commercial Bank assets to invest since 2000 and the end of the Glass Steigal Act.

    Investment banking - Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

    An investment bank is a financial institution that assists individuals, corporations, and governments in raising capital byunderwriting or acting as the client's agent in the issuance of securities (or both). An investment bank may also assist companies involved in mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and provide ancillary services such as market making, trading ofderivatives and equity securities, and FICC services (fixed income instruments, currencies, and commodities).

    Unlike commercial banks and retail banks, investment banks do not take deposits. From 1933 (Glass–Steagall Act) until 1999 (Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act), the United States maintained a separation between investment banking and commercial banks. Other industrialized countries, including G8 countries, have historically not maintained such a separation. As part of the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank Act of 2010), Volcker Rule asserts full institutional separation of investment banking services from commercial banking.

    Investment Bank Vs. Commercial Bank Chron.com

    History and the Future
    According to BU.edu, institutions that mixed commercial and investment banking activities contributed in part to the great depression of the early 20th century. The Glass-Steagall Act, part of the Banking Act of 1933, mandated the complete separation of commercial and investment banking activities, which seemed to yield stable results until its repeal in 1999 by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. Since then, large banks have been free to engage in both types of banking under one roof, which is believed to have been a large contributing factor to the bust of the internet bubble in 2000 and 2001 and the beginning of the global recession in 2008. Whether or not Congress will act to separate the two activities, seemingly so volatile when used in tandem, remains to be seen.

    Big financiers are the bulk of these I bet. Some have credit lines with the banks, or maybe more than just some. It is a stack of cards, looks like to me.
