Everyone is expecting a huge rally once the bombs drop. Is this like the January effect becoming the December effect then the Novermber effect etc.? If everyone expects there to be a rally once war starts, then it makes sense that all they were waiting for to get in early would be confirmation of impending war. We got that. Bush gave his 48 hour speech. The market rallied. Bada Bing. Was that the war rally? So the war rally was really the pre-war rally, making the war rally really the war decline? Opinions would be interesting.
