November 16, 2011

British sports fans are a serious bunch. When it comes to football (they never call it soccer), many would rather lose their home than miss their team score a winning goal.

The Paris Masters was going to determine who was going to be the last players to qualify for the ATP world finals in London.

This is beginning to feel like 2008, complete with all the rumor and chaos and volatility we saw back then. MF Global is a bit like those Bear Stearns hedge funds which went bust -- an isolated datapoint in one respect, but ominous in many others.
