While talking to Ronny Dam last night I raised the question as to why financial newspapers often resort to a pink version - I've seen it happen in more than one case and Ranajit the journalist seemed to agree too, but didn't have any explanation to offer. So I did my morning research on this topic and figured out that it all started in 1893 when Financial Times adopted a "salmon pink" color to distinguish itself from their rival, Financial News. Maybe there is more to the story and the widespread use - but I have no idea - if anyone else does please share it with me.
