I am starting to get that weird “have an exit plan” feeling like I had back in 2008 after Obama was elected...

I suggest everyone and a little more cash on hand and their gas tank full, as well as stock up on essentials that you need anyway that can keep.

If nothing happens, no big deal. You have just saved yourself some future shopping. But... if something is up, you will be ahead of the game just a bit.

1) If you have money in JPM, get it out.
2) Short Sell JPM stock.

(Keep in mind this is J.P. Morgan- Chase)

These guys didn’t bail because things are going well there.

This isn’t simply a 4Q earnings miss....

Possible, though, isn’t it? Not the suicides, per se, but what caused them.

Last week, it was a guy (PR guy?) at Swiss Re that turned up dead. Last summer, there was the intern at BofA London, and the finance chief of Zurich insurance.

Five unrelated coincidences.

Not enough info. Looking at the larger picture, it could be a myriad of things. What if these two were into something WAY over their head? Girl (guy?) trouble? Backroom scam, etc. Banking is not an industry for the weak of mind especially to get to that level. IMO, it's was stress (obviously) but I doubt it was specifically job (or market, or conspiratorial) related.I'll be curious of the forensics accountants piece the two related to something, or not.

JM2C, for now.

Just some dots that you can connect any way you like:

- JP Morgan has paid $20 billion in fines for criminal wrongdoing last year.

- JP Morgan was the largest payment processor of EBT card transactions, certainly a safe business, but is now putting that business up for sale.

- JP Morgan's "London Whale," a "rogue trader" was based in London, and lost JP Morgan a lot of money when his trades went sour.

- London has looser financial laws than New York, and is where a lot of the really shady deals occur.

- MF Global, run by Corazine, made its bad trades in London using customer's rehypothocated money.

At least no one has left a Vatican banker hanging under the bridge in London this time. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roberto_Calvi

Perhaps they knew too much and were unwilling to keep quiet about it or go along with it.

Fears of bank runs have escalated with the news that Russian lender ‘My Bank’ has banned all cash withdrawals until next week.

Didn’t this sort of thing happen a lot during the Great Depression of the 1930’s? The economy crashed, rich peoples’ money evaporated, and they killed themselves en masse because they didn’t know how to survive without the wealth cushion. I work for a rich widow in Geriatric Home Care, and one day she told me “My first husband committed suicide because he was down to his last million dollars, and he couldn’t take it. He was terrified of being “poor”.
If your self-worth is determined by what’s in your bank account, then you have a serious mental problem. At least in my opinion. If you get knocked down, you’re supposed to get up and start over. Over and over, for as long as you’re stuck on this planet.
