Wild Ride

I saw this police chase video over at Ace’s in ┬áthe Overnight Thread.

I remember watching this particular chase live.

I was working on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange. There are hundreds, maybe a couple thousand people working the floor. And thousands of television screens. Most were used to display options markets, but at least one in every pit had the news on. And when that chase came on, every TV in the place went to CNN to watch the chase.

The chase went on for 30 minutes or so. Trading came to a halt. Every single market maker and clerk on the floor was riveted.

So it goes in high finance.
