    anyone have ideas for baskets for the 2 following scenarios?
    1) we catch bin landen/hussien (do they differ?)
    2) another terrorist attack
  2. Give the Pentagon a call, they might have some leftover literature you could use.
  3. ??? what does that mean exactly?

    I have the following in my should terror strike while I happen to be trading basket.

    DRS, LLL, INVN, ATK and NEM. Also TLT which is an ishares for the bonds.
  4. Remember 2-3 weeks ago when the Pentagon was going to start tradng those futures on terrorism? There is a thread around here somewhere. And then the plan was scrapped. The gov't archives everything, so I bet there is some literature describing the proposed commodities and/ or stocks for their product.

    However, your basket looks pretty good too.
