Bill Blain: Is Today The Day?

‘When Black Friday comes, I’ll stand by the door and catch the grey men when they dive from the fourteenth floor..’
I’m sorry, but this morning’s porridge isn’t fresh. It was slammed together yesterday afternoon. As you receive this I’ll be doing some showy-off stuff in the City. No freshly scribbled early morning porridge today – just this ‘warmed up in the micro-wave’ pap. (Incidently, one of my favourite words is Poppity-Ping – Welsh for microwave. Don’t say you don’t learn something every day…)
If I write anything profound last night, it might well be mediocre by this morning..
But… today is the day… finally it has arrived. It’s time to suffer..
For the past couple of months, I’ve been confidently predicting October 12th as the day Global stock markets stagger, tumble and correct. It started as a little joke – my primary reason for picking October 12th was simply that it’s the day before a Friday the 13th.. meaning it’s a great day to really ruin everyone’s anticipation of the weekend!
