Black Swan? Pink Hippo? Falling Bund?

Post by Kobeyashi » Tue Apr 01, 2008 12:23 pm

This is what happened on the 28th of March, 2008.
Personally, this is the first drastic fall that I have witnessed, though I have read a lot about price shocks in 1988 and 2001.

And there are quite a few conspiracy theories floating around about this now, since the Eurex decided that all trades were valid. :o

That really stinks! I've seen these kind of stop runs more and more lately. So far I've been lucky to have missed those bullets - but it is only a matter of time.

Potential icebergs for sure. Yikes.
