No one really knows how insolvent EU banks really are since the ECB allowed some to cheat on their ‘stress tests’

Over the past year both the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank (ECB) conducted a number of 'stress tests' to try to gauge how strong or even insolvent many of their member institutions really are.  In the U.S., the Fed gave a blanket approval to nearly all their major banks, which then led several of them to cash out their emergency reserves and use them to buy back stock in order to boost bonuse ...

Could the banks insane process of selling derivatives on anything lead to collapse due to Hurricane Matthew?

Following the 2008 credit crisis there was a great deal of talk about killing derivative trades, especially since banks held positions large enough to collapse the entire global financial system.  But as with most politicians all it took were a few campaign donations to not only insure that they would not be scuttled, but to even have them backstopped by the FDIC through the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Ac ...

EU backtracks on forced bail-in laws and seeks to build a taxpayer funded derivatives clearing house

Last year the European Commission passed a law that forced all EU countries to enact their own bail-in programs in the event of bank insolvencies.  In fact, the EC was so adamant that taxpayers would no longer be allowed to assist in bailing out banks that the Commission took four governments to court leading up to the Dec. 31 deadline. But as with all ideologies, they are quickly discarded when a crisis ta ...

Foregoing justice to save Deutsche Bank? It’s always fun until someone is about to lose an eye

One day after hedge funds decided to pull out excess capital stored at Deutsche Bank, a late morning rumor involving the Department of Justice negotiating down a planned fine on the German bank boosted the stock markets and brought about a 'false calm' to Wall Street.  However, just as the Federal Reserve uses regional Presidents to go on stage and jawbone rhetoric that they never intend to fulfill, today's ...

Wells Fargo didn’t just engage in identity theft, but they also broke the law in seizing autos from military personnel

Corrupt ECB President Mario Draghi cries foul when accused of being responsible for Deutsche Bank’s problems

The primary reason former Goldman Sachs banker Mario Draghi became the President of the European Central Bank was because he could be trusted to not only aid and abet fraud and corruption with the European banking system, but had already proven himself capable of manufacturing financial fraud himself.  Many people forget that he was the head of Goldman Sachs international division when the bank hid Greek de ...
