    Look at the News: Explosion in the London Subway.

    It is not clear whether this is an accident or worse.

    i think the powersurge story is crap due to action in the bund after the news of the surge was released.

  7. saw this on debka's site ....

    -A double-decker bus blown up at Russell Square in central London with many casualties. This follows five bomb attacks on London’s Underground Rail system described by London police as “a major incident.” All Underground services suspended after two explosions with casualties at Aldgate East station near the financial district and Edgware Road station in NW London-

    i happened to be watching the FDAX at about that time - is it always THAT jumpy? that thing was all over the place in nothing flat.

    just curious ...


    BTW: the ER2 has now fallen to 639.1, or roughly 11-points from its closing price.
  9. sheeesh ... this action reminds me of when

    the madrid train stuff happened

    that was much worse in terms of lives lost

    I forgot how the markets reacted that day
    I do remember the wild overnight session

    I think it was march 11 2003 ?
