Headlines from news stories are all meaningless. Things like

Have no testability, proveability, informational value. Correlation doesnt equal causation. But here, we may not even have any meaningful correlation.

We should read absurdist financial news instead.

Whats telling, in a way, is that financial headlines never use the word BECAUSE.

Gold price holding gains because New York Fed reports sharp drop in manufacturing activity.

Replace as with because and you have a meaningful statement.

As, might as well be Dadaist writing.
