TDI Podcast 25: Who were the Bad Actors?

Guest: Barrons Michael Santoli, Associate Editor. Who were the bad actors in this sell off? This week in the TDI Blog reviewed as well as a terrific interview with Mr. Santoli.

Michael SantoliThe reasons the market corrected. The brokers, Lehman (LEH), Bear (BSC), Merrill (MER), Citi (C) and others are going to open their books to their actual holdings in the next few weeks. That should be another market event which will surely be a real stress test for the markets. The FED (and recently President Bush) is the sugar daddy for the markets, will it continue? We witnessed a quick correction of 12% and a recovery of 8%, Michael tell us that the market is in a “fibrillation” mode. (See recent Santoli Videos from Barron’s or see all Barron’s Videos)
