Recognize that this does not mean JPM has $92 Trillion in potential exposure, or that Bear has (had) $13 trillion. Remember, the derivatives are ran as offsetting positions — kinda like a bookie — where they should be reasonably balanced, regardless of who wins the game.

Remember, Bookies & iBanks make their money on the spread, not betting on who is going to win the big game . . .
