Anyone trading US elections tonight?

I'm 50/50 between coming into work tomorrow and trading boring old interest rate derivatives or trading the US elections on betfair overnight...

Anyone from here tempted to do an all nighter?

Go on, trade the US elections. After all it isn't like it doesn't come around but once in a blue moon. Especially not an exciting one like this.

Interest rate derivatives will still be there for you another day.

Allnighter ?

I think so.

Not over on betfair tho.

More likely with a steady supply of some decent red wine and watching live coverage instead.
