A flock of stock traders

If you have seen the video of the birds in my previous post you may realize that these paterns are visable throughout the animal world.
If you look at a school of fish you see that they can turn direction literally in the blink of an eye.

But we humans do it too. Sometimes slow, sometimes quickly.

After eight years of Bush, flip, enter the first non white president for the US.

But the most interesting one at the moment is the stock market. It goes up and down because of nervous traders. After a big boom like the last one, chaos will remain for a little while. Traders folowing other traders, not knowing where to swim, changing direction in the blinck of an eye.

It will settle down at some point. We'll start swimming in more or less the same direction again. But it is impossible to say when.
