Call The JPMorgan (Whale Loss) Close (Updated)

Update: And the winner is HHFM, with -$5.75 billion! Get in touch to collect your prize.

Did Bruno Iksil make the bank -$2 billion? -$9 billion? -$20 billion? Was this all just a hoax and he actually didn’t lose any money at all? JPMorgan will let us know tomorrow at 7AM.

Standard Price Is Right rules, closest without going over. Guesses in by 4PM today. Winner will receive his or her choice of a visit from the sandwich fairy, a highly coveted whale bath toy, or an I heart Dealbreaker button.

    Thanks for these pointers. One thing I additionally believe is the fact that credit cards giving a 0% rate of interest often attract consumers with zero interest rate, instant approval and easy online balance transfers, however beware of the main factor that is going to void that 0% easy neighborhood annual percentage rate and as well as throw one out into the very poor house quickly.
