    Shocked and yet not shocked.

    If this keeps up the rest of the week, I'm not sure what to think.

    The EU efforts to also pitch in and stem the tide seem to be working

    this is good news for the market but overall it won't have a positive impact on the economy for a few weeks probably.

    I hope the trend continues and the market stabilizes over the next few weeks and months.

    The market over-reacted and is just trying to stabilize....it will fluctuate up and down over the next week or so and settle at about 1200, maybe 1100 until the election....thats my guess....I'm out of stock for now and staying out for awhile...maybe for the next 4 years....

    Think they have the balls to steal $700 bill right at the end after yrs of spending $10 bill a month in iraq with no end in site and they think we'll forget because for a month gas is $3 a gallon and apparently

    For 8 yrs, everytime I showed my gop friends bad news about the economy, they'd point to how well the stock market was doing. and it goes up one day but down the next. It is not a good indicator. Look at unemployment and consumer confidence and inflation and debt more.

    Oh, and haven't us liberals been arguing with you conservatives for years now whether or not we were in a recession? You guys didn't ever admit things were bad, so don't pretend now you were just talking technicalities.
