I have not heard anyone even breach the subject of what inplications a 2nd attack on America (in the next few months) would have on the financial markets . Everyone seems to just assume there will be no more attacks, we re-test the current bottom, and move on. As a daytrader, I'm glad to be in cash each evening. However, I do have a long term investment portfoilio that is at risk to future attacks. The United State's financial psyche is quite fragile at the moment. I believe a second terrorist event will prove to do a much greater harm to the markets than the first.
