According to the Chinese Horoscope, the year 2009 is the Year of the Bull (Ox). It is expected to bring stability and will be slow but steady year. It is also a year of harvest, when hard previous work pays off. Hopefully this means that bulls will come to the stock markets too - we waited for them too long!
Happy New Year to all FNers and your families!
To celebrate the arrival of the Year of the Bull, and to welcome bulls to stock markets, photoshop bulls (or buffalo) any way you wish.
Wall Street Bull sculpture, also called the Charging Bull, or the Bowling Green Bull, is one of the symbols of The Financial District in Manhattan. The famous 7,000 pound bronze statue was created by Arturo Di Modica and installed near Wall Street to "bring bulls back to Wall Street" after the 1987 stock market crash. The bull sculpture is said to bring luck to traders and stockbrokers if they rub it on the testicles. The polished shiny testicles of the statue is the evidence of how many traders and tourists follow this tradition.
With the current stock market sell-off panic, we need to invite bulls back to Wall Street. Lets see if Freaking News can help make it happen.
