That’s how they can play the games they do. From the way they leverage to they way they play the spreads, they’ve got the game down good. But since they somehow have managed to play the political card and buy off some of the so called people’s elected officials, it will take a very strong and vocal group of leaders from the industry to push for disentanglement of the big boys. If people don’t see that having a few very large global powerhouses isn’t really such a great thing, well, wow, get your heads out of the sand. I am all for private enterprise and corporations making money. Pay your dang bankers what you want, i could care less, but when there’s a clear trend in how domination plays out in society both here and abroad, then i do start to care about the size and scope of their operations. I find it a little weird that the federal government limits the amount of EE savings bonds I can purchase in a year, but the guidelines on how much in certain open positions that can be held or purchased by big players is unlimited. YOur telling me that I’m more of a risk to society by overbuying low yield us government bonds than the shadow investors playing with futures and commodities? Oooh, you must all be terrified of me, huh? Big, scary government savings bond buyer on the loose. Watch out!
