Years ago a song asked “War, what is it good for?” the response in the song was “absolutely nothing”. In fact it appears that it’s very good for the stock market. At about 3pm the US, UK and Spain announced that they weren’t going to bother with the UN and Dubya was going to address the US tonight. The FSTE and Dow have been surging upwards ever since. I knew this was going to happen but size and the speed of the response was a surprise. Once again the world has lived down to my expectations.
