sure, there is some regulation (definitely more than in the btc world), but even that doesn't prevent things like the goldman sachs deal back in 2008 from happening. the point I'm trying to make - financial markets in general are volatile and largely unpredictable with plenty of fud and disinformation floating around, not that different from the "bitcoin world".

I'm not saying regulation is working exceedingly well, just that some regulation is still better than none.
