This is stunning.
At the peak of speculative fervor in February, small traders bought to open 7.5 million call contracts.
This week, they bought 12.1 million.

Leading up to 2008, we had garbage mortgage backed securities (derivatives) that were packaged into additional derivatives & yet again into the dreaded CDO-squared. Today, we have fake news headlines packaged into layers of hopes just used as cover for a mania funded by the Fed.
