Hmmm... Goldman Sachs someone knows something. Both Mastercard (MA) and Visa (V) have exploded upward around 1 PM. I can only assume some piece of punitive legislation was successfully blocked by lobbyists in the financial regulation bill... and Goldman Sachs was the first to know. As Gordon Gecko says:
The most valuable commodity I know of is information.
Errr, I mean whoever got this information before the rest of us are just the smartest guys in the room! (just ask them) Look at that volume explosion at 1 PM as insiders trade on information we don't have the free market works. Gosh those are some smart people.
