The problem here is leverage....
I think that the behaviour of the Swiss Central Bank was irresponsible.


This is the problem of ALL players AGAINST a central bank.
A trader has to KNOW that any central bank can change at ANY time their pace or system.
It is a game David against Goliath - and we know who normally wins.
The Forex game will shrink for sure after this tsunami and will let move
prospective traders into safer havens.
Second positive effect: The unserious leverage forex companies will either
get out of business or lower their leverage dramatically


** @FatTails: it was the last chance for the SNB before next week EC bank will
fundamentally change their longtime policy too.
Better to get out before that implosion with one blue eye.
