Bin Laden Dead – Dow Futures Inching Higher

Dow Futures

With the upcoming announcement by President Obama that Bin Laden is dead from a bomb attack last week and his body is in the custody of our military who’ve confirmed identity through DNA, I thought it would be interesting to see what the futures looked like.

You can see how the market popped higher when the story leaked – and it hasn’t even officially been announced by the President yet.

We’ll see what the morning brings. When Sadam was captured, the market faded as the day went on.


UPDATE: the leaked details proved not to be accurate but Bin Laden is definitely dead. Should proved to be an interesting Monday.
