Everytime I hear about earthquakes here in the US I think of the legendary trader Jesse Livermore who was short the railroads back when San Francisco had a huge earthquake in 1906,
Jesse was the who was short the market made a fortune as the railroads crashed down and helped cause the great panic of 1907 where Jesse made some really serious money. Nothing quite like that today however, as the equity markets have been on the uptick all day. The only market that is crashing is the gold market.
The markets are never boring, nor is living on this planet.
All the best to everyone.
