More TED

ONE MORE: The Swedish Model. Please?

UPDATE
: Oh. TED closes at 3.59% - highest ever, and the S&P fell 8.4% - the sharpest decline since 1987. It seems that if anyone can find a hill, they are running for it. I updated the chart below to reflect today. The TED line is off the chart!

I mentioned the financialy wonky TED spread before here, but a small update. For review, the TED spread is a measure of how hard it is for a bank to get a loan from another bank. Normally a bank-to-bank loan is super safe, so the real rate is around or below 1%. In the 1987 crash it hit 3.35%. Today it has hit 3.5% already.

Since that is hard to visualize, I found a graph of TED (red bars) since 1985 compared to the S&P 500 (blue line), and I updated it for today. Shocking.

Hello Everyone I am Daniel Steve from Texas, USA. I will like to share the goodness of God in my life after so many months of trying to get a loan on the internet and was been scammed so i became restless and desperate in getting a loan from a legit lender online. But as God would have it, i saw a comment from a friend called William Ken and he talked about this legit loan company where he got his loan fast and easy without any stress so he introduced me to a man called Mr Mason Diego who controls a firm called Diego Loan Company, So i applied for a loan sum of ($170,000.00USD) with low interest rate of 2%, so the loan was approved and deposited into my bank account in less than 48hrs, that was how i was able to get back on my feet to keep my broken business running and also to pay off my bills so i am advising everyone of you who is interested in getting a loan without collateral, no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans/ schedule, to please contact Mr Mason Diego. You can contact him through his email: diegoloancompany@yahoo.com
