    What's wrong with that? It seems as if Porsche are just playing the barrow boys at their own game and winning.

    And what if you, as a private investor, had bought some VW shares impressed by their astounding price performance in an otherwise rotten market? This is exactly what Regulators and Market Transparency laws are supposed to prevent.

    If that happened in the US those responsible could look forward to wearing fetching orange boiler suits and handcuffs.

    Fortunately, America doesn't rule the world, despite their impression to the contrary.

    One might wonder if the hedge funds ever read this.

    The way the papers tell it today was that the extent of Posrche's position was clarified on Sunday.

    Yet .... the article above was posted almost two weeks ago.

    this kind of behaviour is probably market abuse, which is unlawful

    however, BAFIN (Germany's FSA equivalent) is not well known for effective enforcement, especially against those nasty hedge funds, which deserve their come uppance, having been beaten at their own game
