Twas The Night Before....
‘Twas 5 days before Christmas, when all through the house, No investor was long, not even their spouse.
The stocks were all shorted by the big old bad bear,
In hopes that St Nicholas would soon not be there.
The traders were certain the ‘Claus rally was dead, With visions of profits as stocks turned all red. And Obama was sweating, as the S&P seemed capped, The first post-war Prez to see his third year stocks zapped.
When out of Europa there arose such a clatter,
Spanish T-bills sprang forth to make the shorts scatter.
Away through the 50-day it flew like a flash,
Tore open the shorts and took all their cash. . . .
