In MarkZ 

I am hearing nothing from the banking centers right now…they are quiet but being asked to stay in place. I talked to a banker in Asia…and they are all being asked to stay in place because things are imminent. I take this as a very good sign, I don’t want to get excited but…Well the chatter out of Iraq is sure pointing toward the 10th being a big day. They are looking for a budget tomorrow. We will be closely watching over there in the sandbox overnight and tomorrow. We should manage our expectations…but the chatter and news out of Iraq says they are expecting a new value tomorrow.
