Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm waiting for the derivative market to experience a prolonged monetary contraction.  I haven't actually written and run a simulation, primarily because I don't care any more, but I think loses will be much greater than expected (possibly over 100%!) due to a thin secondary market and the fact the downside of a leveraged financial instrument is greater than the upside.
