    The mechanisms of futures, options and swaps are well understood. It's only the PHD's who don't understand how derivatives really work.

    Unfortunately, the Sayonara Bank has gone bye-bye, the Bank of Toyota has crashed and the Tora Tora Tora Bank is no longer in the picture.

    Except the Japanese know it as Gojira Bank ... Half of its recent losses were caused by failed investments in French Polynesian futures.

    Japanese Banks Under Stress As Well

    Following on from the crisis in the USA, it now seems that uncertainty has hit the Japanese banking sector:

    In the last 7 days Origami Bank has folded.

    Sumo Bank has gone belly up.

    Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches.

    Yesterday, it was announced that Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while today, shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived.

    Samurai Bank is soldiering on following sharp cutbacks.

    Ninja Bank is reported to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black.

    Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal!
