    The same thing, should have no effect on the markets.

    Saddam was captured on a Sunday night too, and futures were up ridiculously. I think by Monday noon we closed the gap. So short it.....

    If you want to check the chart, it was on Sunday, December 14, 2003....

    P.S.: That Pakistanian healthcare must have been one helluva fine.... I wonder if it was private or government funded....

    I had high hopes for the following day and it was a dud.

    There should be a Bin Laden bounce in the markets
  6. Have you guys looked at whats happening in silver/copper futures ? Thats where the money will be made IMO.

    How so? Both are the fall of a US enemy....
