The Papal Betting Pool

Thought I would check in on tradesports.com and see how trading was going on contracts for the future Pope. After little movement in the past few days, I'm surprised to find that the Italian Tettamanzi's "stock" (or the asking price for a contract on him) has fallen $10.80, while Cardinal Ratzinger's "stock" has jumped $7.50 and the odds on him becoming Pope are now 1 in 5.26. Interesting.
