The sun is shining and temperatures are low – springtime in New York City this February, but no Occupy Wall Streeters in Zuccotti Park.
Same day, same weather around Wall Street and no busy traders on their mobile phones either.
Quitetude, because Wall Street is closed in preparation for it´s more or less private Super Bowl 2012.
An old legend knows that if an AFC team wins, markets will decline. That is why Wall Street wanted the New England Patriots to lose Super Bowl. On Super Ball Day, Febr. 5th, The Patriots lost and the New York Giants won.
Is that a good or a bad sign for all the Off-Wallstreeters worldwide? Do people care? Who cares who runs for President for the Conservatives during the election 2012? Who cares that President Barack Obama is running for a second and final term? Who cares who wins the United States presidential election this year? Some Americans whisper, they wanted a second party, cause up to now there was only one, the election game´s winner and loser party with President C or D.
Where is the alternative? Not in Zuccotti Park, not this February.
