In the past few hours, DB stock has staged a dramatic rebound, surging from its overnight -9% lows, to green on the day. What is causing it: after all, aside from a trivial “Dick Fuld-esque” letter by John Cryan to his employees blaming speculators for the plunge, there has been no actual news.
The catalyst for the spike is again a rumor. As Bloomberg writes, “there has been trader unsubstantiated speculation – launched on Twitter – that the bank may reach a lower RMBS settlement with the U.S. DoJ than feared.”
“unverified handles on Twitter speculate the DoJ fine may be $5.4b, vs reports earlier this month the DoJ had sought $14b. Unverified handles including @fiatcurrency, @Fxmacro Tweet or retweet the speculation.”
The rumor got extra significance after some traders repeated and “justified it” in the process, to wit: “Deutsche Bank stock is being helped by speculation the DoJ settlement could be lower than feared,” Sylvain Loganadin, market analyst at FXCM, told Bloomberg by phone. “People don’t want to stay short on Deutsche Bank going into the weekend in case there’s a statement”: Loganadin
