THE LABOR DAY WINDOW
OK, as of the time of this writing, it is 4:52 AM Sunday, August 31, 2014 (GMT+3) Time in Baghdad, Iraq
If there were any banks open in Hawaii all day today, they should be closed by 11pm EST tonight. So we are now in that window, with 59 some-odd hours until the first US banks will be opening on the East coast Tuesday morning.
If they were going to coordinate anything, this is the window, as no exchanges could take place during thus timeframe, save special offsite secret exchange centers for contract-rate participants.
So, from a logistics standpoint, they could release the 800#s and begin the procedural briefings, and begin making appointments so as to have things running like a sewing machine by Tuesdays regular buisness hours.
Here is their three day weekend, and Iraq may be having one as well, Hmmmmm, will they utilize it, or wait for Black Friday?
