OBSERVATION: In what could only be described as a double team on Mayor Greg Ballard (GBAL), Paul Ogden (OGPL) and Gary Welsh (ADIN) have teamed up once again to give Ballard the Blues. For Paul its all about the perception of leadership and for Gary its about the money. Paul's compelling argument has some merit and while Gary gets continues to get a bit spastic on the very mention of this topic he post does raise legitimate concerns. We are wondering if the Ballard's non-response strategy really works. Anyway here's our decision.
We're a politically diverse set of friends who are traders by day and political junkies by night. We started this little experiment to see if politics and the rhetoric it produces can be measured and valued by a set of mutually agreed upon criteria. Indy's Political Stock Exchange is part science, part art and all fun. If by some stroke of luck this blog catches on we may add a buying/selling aspect to the site. In the meantime we'll collect, analyze and report and let you determine who is trading in preferred stock and who is is trading in junk bonds.
