[10:56] {RonS} Diageo says it will put nutritional labels on beverages such as Smirnoff vodka, Tanqueray gin, and Guinness stout.

01[11:02] {@Threei}  "Oh my, all these calories... I gotta quit drinking"
[11:06] {RonS} cndo becoming a house
[11:14] {RonS} hifr pulp
01[11:14] {@Threei}  Equities are trading lower this morning as market participants re-evaluate the macro picture in the wake of the Fed's new stance.
01[11:14] {@Threei}  what new stance?
[11:14] {RonS} lol
01[11:15] {@Threei}  "we are removing "patient" but that doesn't mean we are impatient"?
01[11:15] {@Threei}  give me that vodka bottle with new nutrition information on it...
01[11:16] {@Threei}  OK, next paragraph is about to trigger a bout of epilepsy:
01[11:16] {@Threei}  Markets are endlessly rehashing the FOMC statement and Fed Chair Yellen's words from yesterday. Yellen couched the removal of the patient language in pretty clear terms: "just because we removed the word patient from the statement doesn't mean we're going to be impatient."
[11:16] {dino} talking heads
01[11:16] {@Threei}  somebody shoot me
[11:17] {cosmo} vodka shooter
01[11:17] {@Threei}  The gargantuan five big-figure move in EUR/USD (a round trip from 1.0650 to 1.1050 and back again, the second broadest one-day range seen since 2000) continues to echo through FX markets this morning. Analysts suggest the huge move, sparked by the Fed tempering its enthusiasm for US growth and imminent policy changes, was a bit of a one-off event given the late US afternoon usually has pretty thin FX liquidity conditions.
01[11:18] {@Threei}  WTI crude jumped from below $42.50 to above $45 at the close of cash equity trading yesterday afternoon. But like the euro rally, oil prices retraced the gains. Brent rose from $54 to nearly $57 and has also retraced nearly all its post-FOMC gains. As of writing, WTI is around $43.17 and Brent is around $54.40.
01[11:18] {@Threei}  lol
[11:20] {dino} going to the 30s
