Everyone’s still buzzing about the aftereffects of the JP Morgan’s $2 billion blunder that was announced yesterday. Markets, so far, have been negative, and the banks’ stock is down over 8% in pre-market trading. JP Morgan’s reputation is also taking a battering in every form of media possible.

But Peter Tchir of TF Market Advisors points out something that could be a plus for the bank
