they've won. Pack your bags.
first german word to spring to mind was "Hitler".
I would definitely say yes if they asked if I wanted it sent over to my grandmother's house
I wouldn't count on it being a mistake either, remember when VW become the largest company in the world after some dodgy dealing by Porsche?
or maybe selling something.
Does anyone want to buy something and somehow make me rich?
I thought it was just that Porsche had been buying stock in VW and loads of short-sellers got caught chasing fewer and fewer shares and they couldn't depend on insider trading to get them out of it.
something like they were long through futures or something so they didn't have to declare what %age of VW they owned. I'll see if I can find the details.
That must tell you something. The fact is the market cap of VW was far, far away from where the company could realistically be valued due to the trading of a single entity. That is market manipulation and hence dodgy, in my opinion.
I want it to be legal, simply because I've enjoyed the sight of lots of traders squealing like stuck pigs after losing so much money as a result of them short-selling and getting all whingey about it.
rather than the act of short selling itself? In which case, fair enough.
I was going to attempt a Star Trek joke earlier based on the German stock market being called the Dax but then I thought I'd better leave that type of thing to the experts.
but i don't think it was illegal.
vass die fuchen!
