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.

"carry trade"

itīs strange that every newspaper article has to explain it again from the scratch.

'amid' gets my vote too, I was also thinking this myself only this week. The journalists who have to compile market reports use this scam to imply a reason for an index fall or rise, implying the market moved for fundamental reasons which it takes a journalist with much experience (and hefty expense account?) to uncover. Whereas most of us traders probably believe so many market moves are technical (and US-driven) and nothing to do with the latest Christmas trading statement from this or that FTSE250 minnow, even if their high street name catches attention in the headline.
