If Goldman Sachs survives it will be only after executing a cease and desist order with the United States Government. Specifically they will likely have to agree to cease trading in OTC markets entirely, only exchange trading would be allowed. Perhaps they will have to spin off their trading from investment banking. But you can rest assured the US Govt. will exact their price for Goldman’s behavior. Do you think the Govt. can stop now?
You think so? I don't. The gov't (Obama, Fed and Treasury) need Goldman to keep the rally moving up. Those patented Buy programs with Fed money are vital. Goldman will have to pay a fine of 75 million. Admit no guilt. Token reforms... And back to business. This in next 3 months.
