As we all wait with anticipation for The Bernank to speak at 4:00 p.m. EST, here's a little something to help you kill the time.
The alert Turdite "silverstool" alerted us earlier today that the CFTC was planning a closed-door meeting. ( http://www.cftc.gov/PressRoom/Events/opaevent_closedmeeting011413 ) If you're wondering what it's about, we have your answer. We've planted a secret camera inside the CFTC offices in Washington and look what we overheard.
The meeting is probably insignificant. Maybe they're just discussing office politics or planning for O'Bottom's re-inauguration next week. Or maybe...
Have a great day!
