On Tuesday, March 11th, 2008, somebody made one of the craziest bets Wall Street has ever seen. They spent 1.7 million dollars on a series of options, betting that shares in investment bank Bear Stearns would lose more than half their value in nine days or less. No investment bank in history ever had that happen. It was an absolutely insane thing to do. But it happened, and the person who made that trade made about 270 million dollars from the fall of Bear Stearns. Do you think that is a coincidence?
