    Greek word's/letters are often used in math or science, to substitute for concepts of various sorts. Options tend to be the most "Greek" but today's stock market and yesterday's is perhaps reminiscent of another Greek word, that word being "thanatos" or death. You can almost sense the ancient intrigue and lore surrounding death from an ancient word like "thanatos", however today's market performance was none-too-mystical, but it was surely full of some "thanatos" none-the-less, so lets take a look at some of those whom were spared.
