Listening to “doing the numbers” on Marketplace recently, I caught this gem (closely paraphrased … it’s hard to take notes and steer at the same time):
“The Dow crossed the very significant 13,000-point barrier in midday trading, but dropped back before the close, ending at 12,987 …”
If it’s a “very significant barrier,” why is it that traders just feel free to wander back and forth across it? Hmmmmm?
Cue Inigo Montoya …
