Most annoying word in trading...

... is "amid." I am so sick and tired of seeing this word in every bloody financial news release. Prices never just move. They always move "amid" something! Amid concerns. Amid speculation. Amid worries. Amid credit crisis. Amid get your head out of your ass and expand your friggin' vocabulary! I get pissed, goddamnit!

They probably should use "because of" but they can't because they don't know what's really happening. They use amid because it implies "because of" without actually saying it -- how to make a talking head sound intelligent.
