Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

From link provided:

CEO Jamie Dimon, who admitted JP Morgan had made 'egregious mistakes', issued a statement claiming that the bank had hit trouble.

He said: ‘In hindsight, the new strategy was flawed, complex, poorly reviewed, poorly executed and poorly monitored.

‘The portfolio has proved to be riskier, more volatile and less effective as an economic hedge than we thought. There are many errors, sloppiness and bad judgment.

‘It puts egg on our face and we deserve any criticism we get.’

Mr Dimon spoke as U.S. regulator the Securities and Exchange Commission prepared to look into how changes in the way JP Morgan calculates risk might have obscured the potential for these trades to do such colossal damage.
Yet despite the accusations levelled at Mr Iksil, there has been no suggestion that his trading tactics broke any rules.
