The following is an excerpt for those interested in more detail: If we use the model for a normal (Gaussian) distribution, a five-standard deviation credit event should only happen once in every 7,000 years. But in the market place, we see this happen once or twice in a decade. Amaranth was short fall natural gas futures contracts and long winter natural gas futures contracts in sequential years from 2006 through 2009, among other trades. But just as too much money flowing into these trades can collapse spreads in the treasury market, too much leveraged money flowing into the much thinner commodities market undid Amaranth's trades. Spreads tightened by five to ten standard deviations in the September/December natural gas spreads depending on which time period you use for your data. In September, Amaranth lost more than half of its value, skidding from $9 billion to only $3 billion in a.s.sets (according to the Wall Street Journal) Wall Street Journal) having put on the cla.s.sic "Dead Man's Curve" trade. These trades don't follow a normal curve or even a historical spread pattern, and even if historical patterns eventually return, in the meantime, one is merely "dead" right. having put on the cla.s.sic "Dead Man's Curve" trade.
