The madness of the manipulation machinery on Wall Street knows no bounds.
Remember credit default swaps (CDS)? They're the risky financial derivatives traded among FDIC-insured banks that, during the 2007-08 financial crisis, took down Lehman Bros. and almost bankrupted giant insurer AIG Inc.
Well, they never went away. And now they're making a comeback, and Wall Street is using them in ever more maniacal ways.
