1. Slim to none...

The money men have already told them they can play their game, until they can't.

4. I agree with you & DCBob below.

The Puppetmasters will be jerking the strings shortly.

5. They will try to be discreet....

Wall Streeters are nothing if not gamblers, so they are willing to push it a bit to see if Obama caves....but they've put out the word...crash the economy and our money goes elsewhere.

3. Ryan's kick the can a month or two is a test.

They want to see what effect not passing it will have long term.

6. Small

but there are some right wing investor types hawking the notion and trying to convince people to sell short. I'm sure these Guru's are hedged to the max and will make huge profits either way.
