Nice post, and very pleasant to read.

I don't know that Dodd could understand it, but I could.



And Grandpa would have been mightily peeved if he found that the markets were speaking out of both sides of their mouths I suspect.


I thinks the problem here is not Grandpa options but investors trading with mutual funds or other saving accounts trying to get a double deck surplus and slice their commission without measuring the risks involved. Those have to be banned in gambling, it`s not their money. Gambling should be for individuals or group of them in knowledge they are gambling and not only investing. This option could reduce market volumes, but certainly Brent crude will not go up to 150 and paid by car owners.
