The collapse of Deutsch Bank has been a long time coming but it’s here now and eerily reminiscent of the fall of Lehman Brothers. Although, taking place in Europe, US banks will be affected.

There are not millions, not billions, not trillions but quadrillions of derivatives. Derivatives almost destroyed the banks in 2007 and 2008, if it were not for stimulus money. The big four are loaded with derivatives. Not a good sign when such a large bank buckles. There is a nice article which discusses the derivative ‘time bomb’. https://seekingalpha.com/article/4046338-derivatives-explode-like-bomb
The bigger they are, the harder they fall. The real question is what is BOA and the Big 4 bank's exposure, if any, when Deutsche fails. Ricochet effect.
