    The rumors are that somebody is dumping CDOs in LA.
  6. Unfortunately, despite all the preparation one makes, we cannot know when random news will be released and how it will affect the market. Sometimes you just get unlucky. Of course you could have been short and gotten lucky. I think it all evens out in the end as far as these events are concerened.

  7. Word. what do you use?
  8. Bush hit the earthquake button to destroy some of the foreclosed properties.
