Three explanations have been provided for this peculiar exhibit of "spilled" cash in the Senate's Hart Building:
i) Step aside "Bernanke chopper"; presenting the "Yellen briefcase"
ii) Debt ceiling compromises don't come cheaply
iii) A Senator just cashed out of their SPX calls
All are equally likely, although perhaps what is saddest is that nobody even wants to pick it the strewn "reserve" currency.
