This is hilarious!

I almost don't think it is real. Either I am getting old, or they just popped a young kiddie on the tube who was a bit too honest for them. That was fun to watch and thank you for sharing.

I think his warning is a bit 'dire' but who knows....

I just watched the brief interview... and I am trying to figure out what exactly is the "big deal" about it... first, that fear rules this market is not news.. it is reflected on the volatility within the market.. that one can make money on down makets if prepared, how is that news or shocking or novel?

the plunger boy was a contrarian and made his $$$ on down turns mostly during depressions... there are always lots of people prepared to make $$$ of any event that impacts all... and they are chastized by the masses when they make their billions and labeled as greedy... this dood has said nothing "new" ... it is all generic... I mean, come on... hedging strategies?! do you all realize how many strategies there are .. question is, what are you hedging, what risk are you taking out? are you just removing the risk against a down turn? against a side ways market? what?! .... unclear comments, and shock and awe for entertaintment value.

I just think he was being blunt and putting things into terms that simpletons could understand, and he played on the fears of everyone who is watching and knows in their guts that they are headed for another crash.. and IMO, all to make himself be known further.. after all, he has something to sell..

Actually, I wrote a book on this topic "Agenda driven media. How to see the truth"

Available for only $29.99 on Amazon....

I'll bet you a 6E short that this guy has a poster of Gordon Gekko in a 24K gold plated frame in his bathroom. That's usually the first thing that creeps his first dates out. Second on the list: He owns more hair products then they do.

Well, the people that make the billions are typically also involved in orchestrating the collapse or are otherwise dirt bags. You cannot say that Goldman Sachs is an ethical company. They have pulled all sorts of dirt-bag schemes over the years. You may say that the ignorant masses are at fault, but I argue that anyone who takes advantage of people is a scum bag. How is it any different than tricking a kid into giving up his lunch money? Or tricking an old person into giving you cash for something worthless? How is it any different than stealing?

Looks like not only Goldman rules the world... JP Morgan just schooled the Bank of Canada Governor


JPMorgan chief lashes out at Carney: report



Tempers apparently were running high when global bankers met in Washington over the weekend.

According to the Financial Times, Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan Chase launched a tirade at Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney in a closed-door meeting in front of more than two dozen bankers and finance officials.

Dimon's beef was new capital rules that will force all banks to hold seven per cent core capital against risk-weighted assets, which Dimon calls "anti-American," and says discriminate against U.S. banks.

On Sunday, Carney - who is touted as a potential next head of the Financial Stability Forum - warned global bankers to hold the course on reform.

"It is hard to see how backsliding would help," he said.

Global banking regulaors have agreed on new capital and liquidity rules for banks, and plan to begin phasing them in as of 2013. Frustration has been building within some of the world's biggest banks over what executives see as "unintended" and harmful consequences of the sweeping post-crisis regulations aimed at reducing risks to the global system.

The bankers are attempting to convince regulators to ease the new rules for certain lines of business.

that is incorrect... you are eating up the media frenzy bs...

I know an investor in South Florida that basically started hoarding cash (to the tune of about 200 millions) between him and his wealthy friends, because he believe real estate was overvalued and people were overextending themselves... I mean, how is it possible for a family of two making $80-100K a year to qualify for a $500K loan?! the banks were to blame for that, and people for not having a clue to be fiscally responsible.. in any event, the investor to this date is basically just buying unfinished buildings for less than replacement value, finishing them for peanuts, and offering the stock as rental ... his exit strategy is to sell them eventually..

this guy is not alone.. there were fund managers that specialized on REIT's that did the same thing...

You cannot say that Goldman Sachs is an ethical company. They have pulled all sorts of dirt-bag schemes over the years.

first, I never mentioned GS... second, if you have proof of the so called dirt-bag schemes, please sue them for it... other than that you are expressing your opinion without facts (other than what you read in the media)... so just be careful with it.. if you know what I mean.

I dont disagree that anyone that takes advantage of people selling them something worthless for their cash is at the very least unethical, after all.. the whole trading education business is full of those type of people.. but to say they are scum bags? hmmm... not sure..

at the end of the day... caveat emptor... always do your own research and educate yourself.. or help others by educating them.. that is what I believe and do anyhow...

JP just needs to break up the bank and place their risky lines under a different umbrella... but then again, harder to manage losses that way...

Aaaah - the "Anti-American" chestnut.

7 percent ain't much is it? I suspect they would prefer .000000000000000001%

I think the rule is pro-American. Sure it's not very good for those financial engineers and their whacky opinion that they can create wealth out of nothing. But at least it'll go some way to stopping them from bringing the system down again.

Goldman Sachs bought Greece debt before Greece enter euro with a special arrangement so Greece cleaned up the balance sheet and have under 3% of GDP debt.The same happend believe it or not also with Germany.
THis was admited by the Greek prime minister who was in that period 1996-2000.

I already disliked that guy in the video, quite full of himself and his general manner of speaking and behaving, so it's nice to see (for my ego, how ironically ) that he's not really a "seasoned city trader" and just did the interview for the kicks he got out it, so perhaps his whole story was just to shock and get his 15 minutes of fame.


Quoting 
The incongruity led to some commentators speculating Mr Rastani was a professional hoaxer. The BBC denied the allegation: "We've carried out detailed investigations and can't find any evidence to suggest that the interview with Alessio Rastani was a hoax."

However, the BBC declined to comment on what checks, if any, it had done prior to the interview.

Mr Rastani was a little more forthcoming.

"They approached me," he told The Telegraph. "I'm an attention seeker. That is the main reason I speak. That is the reason I agreed to go on the BBC. Trading is a like a hobby. It is not a business. I am a talker. I talk a lot. I love the whole idea of public speaking."

So he's more of a talker than a trader. A man who doesn't own the house he lives in, but can sum up the financial crisis in just three minutes a knack that escapes many financial commentators.

"I agreed to go on because I'm attention seeker," he said on Tuesday. "But I meant every word I said."

Source: BBC financial expert Alessio Rastani: 'I'm an attention seeker not a trader' - Telegraph

I wonder how many serious traders would say the same thing. (And how many sensation seekers are successful traders for that matter)
