  1. Unfortunately, this terror-based market manipulation is going to happen a lot more. Whether it's a bomb, a power outage, or some other catastrophe, we know there are people motivated to do this now.

  4. Remember the proposal for futures based on terrorism events? That was laughed out of town. Now it doesn't seem like a bad idea to have events foretold in financial instruments.
  5. Let's just hope the knee-jerk reaction isn't to eliminate short-selling as a means to thwart terrorists making profits.
