OK. Bought some HTE on the gap close. Also a modest amount of GAP. Mkt still pretty indecisive though.

We have our first all cash western economy. Iceland nationalized the 3rd and largest bank, leaving the country without a financial system. No trading in their currency, stock market shut, etc.

The government's decision to take control of Kaupthing, the country's leading bank, which has assets and debts across the continent, means that the Financial Services Authority now has control of all three of the country's major banks.

Got cash?

I can't believe Paulson hasn't had the treasury buy Iceland. They could hold it for a while and sell it at a profit.

Maybe his banker, Madame Wu, wouldn't lend him the dough. :lol:

They could hold it for a year, wait for global warming to really kick in, then sell it as bottled water.
Thanks, David
