    RUMOR circulating that Kim Jyong II has died

    hearing this on the floor of the stock exchange (where I work)- anyone else heard anything on this? I want to STRESS, that this is MERELY a RUMOR being discussed, and the stock market has rallied hard in the last half hour as a partial response. Just checking to see if any Redszoners have heard anything, as usually someone on here has a scoop.

    Investors Daily heard the same rumors

    http://www.investors.com/breakingnew...25894362&brk=1
    Stocks appeared to get a further boost as rumors circulated on trading room floors that the North Korean leader Kim Jong-il had been been overthrown.

    "I've heard that rumor," said Peter Boockvar, equity strategist at Miller Tabak. "Maybe that news matters for a couple of hours, but I don't think it will have an impact on someone buying a car in the United States."

    There's a stock exchange in Ann Arbor? I live in Ann Arbor and I never knew.

    Sadly I don't live in Ann Arbor anymore, as I graduated from school a couple years ago. Just never bothered to change my profile. I'm in Chicago now trading on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade.

    I don't think so. I think where creek works might have that type of info. I could be wrong though.

    Yep, the Creekster works for the military, so she'd probably be able to find out if US officials thing Kim Jong bit the big one.

    True. Also, I don't think creek would mock anyone. She might PM you and chew your :allovrjr: if she's got a problem with something ,but I don't think she'd "mock" anyone.

    Yeah; a beautiful, impartial umpire like her would never mock anyone.

    Re: RUMOR circulating that Kim Jyong II has died

    How many times has this rumor surfaced in the last few years? There was talk of this sometime last year if my memory doesn't fail me (sometimes it does!). There were rumors that his pictures we being taken down and it probably meant that he died.

    However... I hope it is true!! Sure there is a possibility that someone like him may take over. But there seems to be no negotiating with Jong II. A pure and simple nutcase IMO. A replacement may be the same, but cannot be any worse.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    I agree, except that it can always be worse. Imagine if Osama (or someone like him) took control of that nuclear arsenal. At least Jong hasn't pushed the button (yet).
