Yes they really are.They're crashing all over the place.
Fortuantely I'm in Florence and going to the opera at Torre del Lago over the next few nights, so I don't really care. I don't anyway as we got out of most things a few weeks ago.
However, I was fascinated by the scrolling news on both CNN and the NASDAQ site
" Uk's Footsie falls 4%"
"Dow plunges over 300"
" Countrywide Financial going bust"
" Nigeria bans all foreign made toothpaste"
Eh? Come again?
I reread it.
I can only think toothpaste is an important medium of exchange in Nigeria, and they are tightening their credit.
Clearly a trading opportunity.
Nigerians are clearly going bananas without their Crest. I intend to buy up world supplies and smuggle them in, making a killing in toothpast futures.
