market stabilising

    If a nation's currency comes under attack from concerted predatory behaviour the central banks can intervene to buy and restore stability to the market (gently offloading the currency later when normal trading resumes at a nice profit).

    Q: Why can't the same happen with national sharemarkets? A role for the sovereign super funds in extreme attacks.

    Perhaps an international agreement to swing into action at a pre-determined level or %. Preferable to banning shorting or closing markets? They need to do something IMO or the original concept of investors providing capital for public companies will be destroyed.

    We are currently in a period where fundamentals have long been thrown out of the window. It has become a joke.
