Wall Street Equivalent of a Perfect Game of Baseball

New York Times, Wednesday, May 12, 2010, by Eric Dash

“Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase & Company produced the equivalent of a trio of perfect games during the first quarter.  Each one finished the period without losing money for even one day.” …

“Their remarkable streak is one for the record books. Perfect trading quarters on Wall Street are about as rare as perfect games in Major League Baseball.  On Sunday, Dallas Braden of the Oakland Athletics pitched what was only the 19th perfect game in baseball history.”

“It is the Wall Steet equivalent of a perfect game of baseball–27 up, 27 down (9 innings, 3 outs each inning),  measured in millions of dollars a day.”
