Margin Hikes

I'm no guru on any of this but I don't think they can raise margins on the SGE. Probably why the Chinese got their on market, no margins.

Positively a hoot!

Hey, thanks folks!

Much appreciated! I was sitting for hours this morning looking at the charts, thinking about what TF said about all the new shorts added in the face of rising price yesterday, on top of the huge numbers already out there... yet we keep on going up up up, and this whole photoshop just kept jumping around in my head... I guess I needed to get it out.

Plus, I thought somebody needed to put this on record BEFORE it happens, just in case, AND to have something to throw in the face of the deniers if/when this occurs. Time stamp in the heading, y'all. Feel free to rub it in, if and when the time comes! Terry Duffy is the Pres of the CME, and I suspect he has a twitter account somewhere... if they hike margins to save the banks, it would be nice if he and others heard about it!

You think that after all the manipulation. They hedges will open a trade desk at SGE instead.
