    Forget The Debt Ceiling — Traders Are Buzzing About The Gigantic Asteroid Barreling Towards Earth​

    ART CASHIN: Forget The Debt Ceiling — Traders Are Buzzing About The Gigantic Asteroid Barreling Towards Earth Sam RoJan. 8, 2013, 8:46 AM
    With no major economic, earnings, or political news, yesterday turned into one of the most boring trading days in a very long time. According to UBS's Art Cashin, this gave the New York Stock Exchange floor traders time to chat about various things. One of those things: the gigantic asteroid heading toward earth. From this morning's Cashin's Comments: And You Thought The Debt Ceiling Was All You Had To Worry About – Trading was slow enough yesterday that traders had more than the usual allotment of time for chitchat. Quickly exhausting sports, politics and the rest of the usual roster, thinking and thoughts turned skyward.

    Apparently, in mid-February, asteroid 2012 DA14 will pass within 21,000 miles of earth.

    NASA assures us that their calculations show that it will not strike the earth.
    We're from the government and we're here to help you. ​


    Let's hope NASA double-checked their math.

    It would be bigger than the one that made the mile wide crater at Meteor Crater AZ.
