You are attempting to use logic on an issue that hasn't seen a lot of that in the last couple of years.

If there is a fire in a refinery in Texas, the markets gets nuts until someone figures out that it was a small refinery and production will only be down for a couple of days. If Putin calls a news conference, the business news people stop the presses. If a tropical storm gets a name in the Atlantic, short traders reach for the Malox. If some Nigerians occupy a rig off the coast, pre-market gets nasty...

I think I said that Monday would be "interesting", I didn't ask grandma how to suck eggs. ;-)

Thanx Hal
