    Harry Schultz remains the one and only source for this bank holiday rumour. At least the date is specific enough - Aug 26. So we will know in eight days if he got it right.

    I place the probability that he is right so low it is not worth lifting a finger to prepare.

    Wait a minute. Aren't people supposed to flock back into treasuries for safety when the markets crash?
