How do you think the market will react to Osama’s death?

 

By now I’m sure most of you have heard of the news of Osama Bin Laden’s death. This is a major and great occasion, and there will be much celebration.

So with what I blog about, how do we think the market will react to Osama’s death?

Do we think it will shoot up? Go down? Stay the same?

I’ll make my own prediction here:

I think the market will remain steady and take a wait and see approach

While Osama’s death is indeed great news, there is always the fear of martyrdom and retaliatory terrorist events. If even 1 retaliatory event happens I would expect the market to react violently towards it.

If anything I think we’ll see some people play it safe and even move investments to safer ventures.

How do you think the market will react to the news tomorrow?
