Agreed. I think often times the markets over react to seemingly insignificant things.

Oil prices, not just concerning Egypt, but the spreading of the turmoil throughout the region (UAE, Libya)...

Libya is the 18th largest oil producer in the world...

Libyan leader Moammar Qaddafi finds himself in a potentially dangerous predicament.

He is sandwiched between two Arab countries (Tunisia and Egypt) which have convulsed with massive social unrest. Moreover, his prestige among the Arab world has been severely damaged by some embarrassing revelations in diplomatic cables released by Wikileaks.

The cables indicated that Qaddafi and his sons live a life filled with wine, women and song, as well as domestic violence, drunk driving and wild parties – all in stark contrast to their image as upholding traditional Islamic and Bedouin tribal values.

Although nothing remotely similar to what’s happening in Egypt has yet infected Libya, media reports indicate that Qaddafi’s plans to hand over his throne to one of his licentious sons is causing great concern among the population.

Anything can happen if this movement shifts to the other Arab countries.

Stability is the major concern but if level heads prevail there will be a shift towards democratic systems and people finally gaining control of their countries. Wait till the people of the USA start to wake up and demand wholesale change to the drain that has happened in the USA from corporate globalism.

As long as the people make a peaceful shift in the Arab countries, it will be a good thing. If the dictators use violence, it could get nasty. Here is a great opportunity for the USA to assist the Arab people shift towards a more democratic system but as we all know, change is slow and challenging. So many other factors to consider but change appears to be happening.

As for the markets: uncertainty will affect price of oil, gold and other commodities as they will likely rise to the occasion.

very good buying opportunity, the problem in Egypt will not evolve into a protracted civil war. It's only temporary until the president retires from office.

It is not in the interest of the USA to assist the Arab people achieve democratic governments. The US removes leaders they don't like under the banner of democracy. The US installed puppet leaders there to protect their own interest and to protect Israel. If Hosni Mobarak resigns, the US and Israel will lose one of their few allies in the middle east.

Agreed, anything can happen. The protests could get a lot more violent and eventually force Mubarak out. In which case, other countries then have 2 examples to follow: Tunisia and Egypt.

No one knows where this will end up, but there's a lot of dirty politics involved with the U.S. and their interests and the democracy of the people of Egypt.

However, remember, this is only 1 tiny factor in a list of MANY huge factors that are causing major uncertainty right now. For example: Europe, Japan, US, Portugal, Spain, Belgium, China, etc.... too many to list.

True about the USA involvement and their interest involvement but what is really exciting is that US citizens are becoming educated about the very imature games their leaders have played in the name of power, control and money and not in the best interest of the planet, its people and species. Who is really looking after the best intersts of the planet, people and species? Is it corpocracies disguised as democratic governments? Is it puppets working for corpocracies disguised as democratic governments?

The Dali Lama had is right "War is out of Style," and people are becoming more enlighted about the industrial military machine economys which are not healthy for all and the US economic system with it fractional reserve currency. Thay are waking up and beginning to ask why is it that the people do not own our own Federal Reserve? Why is it the law that no one can know who owns it?

US citizens are waking up to ask why are the lawyers elected to protect the people, helping the energy, pharma, oil, banks, autos and other major industries yet leaving the little guy paying the bill when these institutions fail. Why do they privatize the profits and socialize the loses?

America was built on Indian land in the where rebels left the European lands because they did not have "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" so they sought it on New Lands but pushed the Indians off into reservations to starve and die or eliminated them with calvaries or tried too. Anyhow, now America (USA) seems to be in a mode of "fear, survival and the pursuit of a vision" Strange how things work if you let the feudals create royalty then create corporations (with limited liability) then let a minority group manipulate the system in their favour. The USA is broke. Follow the money. The military spends billions on global efforts...follow the money? Oil deals done with Saudi Arabia...follow the money. The little people who really count are waking up and saying enough of this nonsense...life can be much better if we united and worked together rather than against each other....
