Thursday Oct 19th is the 30th anniversary of Black Monday. The day, looking back in hindsight, that launched our monetary disorder. I took the day off of work to watch the fireworks on old FNN, now Crapvison, which were well telegraphed, to me anyway. Although I knew only 1% of what I think I know now about money and finance.
I called my futures broker several hundred times to get in an order to buy Tbond futures, I never got through. I can't actually reconstruct the reason why I was certain going long bonds was a great idea that day. I didn't know much but I do know it was a great day to buy them. I've saved the following days WSJ for posterity.
War is the last great hope of the incompetent to order the unwilling to attempt the impossible.
