  1. We just heard a "rumor" of this here in our trading room? Anyone have any better information on this. Apparently one trader was taken off the floor, or is this just b/s..rumor?

    Have not seen anything on the wire?
  2. If that were true the eminis would've spiked down already
  3. If they come out with a press release confirming its anthrax or something I am sure the market will spike down.. for now the market doesnt think its anything seriuos.
  4. agreed - non event - a few guys on our floor were asking, thanks for all the replies.

    good trading all...

    PS: if I could type at all it would've helped also, sorry for the "typo's" was moving quick
  5. The report said they inhaled "fumes." Most weaponized pathogens like anthrax are colorless and orderless when in aerosol form. If it was something bad the poor saps would never know it.
  6. Fire trucks called to Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) By Kate Gibson
    CHICAGO (CBS.MW) -- Fire trucks were called Wednesday to the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) after a report of a suspicious odor at 11:25 a.m. in the telecommunications room. Fire fighters treated several people at the exchange for "dizziness," but there were no serious injuries, said CME spokesman John Holden. "There was no impact on exchange operations," he added.
