There have been days I would have joined them.

Did you notice a banker retired early at 45 with $4,175 (300,000 rupees). Some things must cross all cultures.

My sympathy goes out to those who have lost their entire savings. Destruction of buildings or acts of violence, however, does not help them recover their losses or prevent further market decline.

Very interesting post and pictures. For a moment, just imagine that happening in the US. What would the world become after that? The end of the Roman Empire or we would all just go to work and pay our taxes the next day?

Most likely we would have to pay higher costs of trading and increased taxes to increase security for Wall Street.

most of the wall street banks have secondary locations in NJ and Pennsylvania along with the NASDAQ and other critical markets. very easy to failover there and no one will ever know where their order is being executed.
