An observation of what didn’t happen on Wall Street on the non-economic news of the day. Reports, confirmed this afternoon by the White House, say that there actually were explosives found in air cargo packages bound for the United States.

Airlines stocks were calm. UPS, whose planes were searched in Dubai and the UK, barely budged.

The president did say he’s going to step up security, but if you’ve got big Halloween travel plans — go ahead and go.
