Take physic, pomp

So how was your day today?

Reuters reports that a trader on Brazil’s Bovespa trading floor shot himself in the chest today in an apparent attempt at suicide. The trader employed by Itau was rushed to hospital in a serious condition. UPDATE: Here’s Bloomberg with an English language version.

In other news, another headsup from a kind reader (but this one I’d noticed already) was the block of 1m shares that went through at $0.16 about an hour ago on Inca Pacific (IPR.v).

Meanwhile in Chile, October copper sales way, way sucked and were 28.5% down in value YoY. Here’s the link. One thing to note here is how Chile has dropped its 2009 average copper price forecast from $3.10 to $1.65…..man, even the Chileans were caught on the hop by this collapse (which makes me feel a little better…just a little).

Ecaudor’s 2012 bonds traded up today. Gained 10%. Hooda thunkit?
