Trading on the Sixth 

Interestingly, someone has opened a trading market on Intrade on the Bachmann-Tink race. No trades have taken place yet. Put some trades up there, and I'll put the graph in the sidebar for the weekend. That contract only went live last Friday.

Meanwhile, someone's goofing around with the Coleman contract:

Price for Minnesota Senate Race at intrade.com

As we've discussed before, sometimes there aren't enough traders to make this market work well with its prices. This contract closed last night at 55 (bet $5.50 to win $10 if Norm wins) but right now you can lay $44 to win $100, and someone traded at 35 to make the contract look low this second.
