MarketWatch: Thurs 20th
October 20, 2011 § 3 Comments
8am: Markets flat. Some troubling data out of China this morning. But I never know what that means. Dress down day. We were told to come incognito to avoid detection by protestors on streets. Nathan came in wearing kid fawn gloves, a full length Cashmere coat, a £2000 Pitpick & Buxton suit, Wallaston cuffs, Gucci loafers and Rolex. The man has little decorum.
I came in my country clothes, old Barbour, cordury pants, fishing hat. Policeman stopped me and barred me right-of-way in Lomb St. Mistook me for a protestor. The nerve!
2pm: Unconfirmed reports that Qadaffi captured, killed, alive, then dead again. Markets swinging around like a dead dictator. Come on people! Calm down.
3pm: Nathan and Ashwin threw lot of monopoly money out of window at protesters. They claim to be celebrating G-Day. Or Q-Day.
5pm: Quadaffi dead, markets volatile, protests on the streets. At least I managed to have lunch today. Tonight I will be publishing a thought piece on the misery index. The words may not be entirely my own.
