A Ghost, from Sushil Kedia

August 13, 2007 |

 I stepped out for a smoke during dinner this evening. A clean looking, 50ish healthy man darted by asking if I had a spare cigarette. I passed on a cigarette to be greeted with "I bless you. I will make a miracle come true for you." I asked what kind of a miracle? He said depends if you want a good one or a bad one. I asked why would I want a bad one? He said well many do. I will help you in your business and if anything else is possible for me.

I asked where do you live? He said that he was homeless. I asked then why don't you do the miracle to get yourself a home first? He said he didn't need one. He told me the new President of India is a smart woman (I understand he keeps up with current affairs). Then he says he is God and he wanted the dollar to go down. He said at a time the dollar was more than the pound and now he sees it going to a point where there would be 14 dollars required to get one pound. He concluded with telling me that his blessing to me is to go short the dollar and the I will be very rich. All of this within three minutes of igniting a cigarette and dragging in the last puff.

What sort of a ghost it is? I have never met with a market ghost before. What should one do with this conversation? Ignore? Come back to your computer to look at the charts and get more conviction that the dollar is rallying at least 10% in the next 12 months? Or should just one beware of lending cigarettes to unknowns ever again in life?
