Writedown News: 28 Oct 2008

This week, I can practically repeat what I said last week verbatim – so, I will.

Writedowns continued unabated despite the easing global credit markets. While we should see a bear market rally due to this easing, the ill effects of a global recession and new concerns in emerging markets and Asia will cause writedowns to mount for quite some time.

Below are the writedowns from the previous week. These links are compiled in my credit crisis timeline, which now includes government actions as well as financial institution events. (Note: I am still updating the financial institution index. So it is not all inclusive. See the full list of writedown news, if a specific large financial institution is missing in the index.)
