We have had the Bear Market and the Bull Market but now financiers have thought up the Cow Market!
This is when the Bull Market is overflowing and their is a slump into Cow Land, where members of the Stock Exchange move into the fields and lie down for a long rest.
Dubbed the Cow Market this trend is being observed more and more in financial circles.
Financial trend setter Avrid Oakes explained the Cow Market approach to us whilst lying in Hyde Park. The sun was shining, the sky was blue as Avrid pointed out the clouds on the horizon.
'We are turning to the muse' she told me 'the strain of the Stock Exchange is too much for us. We have got to learn to live. The Cow Market is the obvious solution.'
We exchanged poetic couplets and soon had a crowd around us lying around examining the sky and quoting lines about England's green and pleasant land. The Bull Market seemed a long way away.
