    That's a shame, because my life revolves around how well Wall Street does.

    Perhaps if you actually worked at a productive job... you might have a 401K or an IRA and then Wall Street might matter to you.

    Since I work and actually produce an income, though, I don't worry much about my "investments." I will always be able to produce an income through my labor.

    I guess we should be impressed. You work and produce an income but you don't give a shit about your investments. You may work but at least you didn't claim to be intelligent with a reply like that. :cool:

    My investments are fairly large and very conservative. I don't touch Wall Street--it is a fool's paradise, nothing but an institutionalized casino. This has paid off quite well for me.

    Wall Street belongs to aristocrats and lazy folks that dream of instant riches without working for it.

    Well--there are other investments besides the stock markets. And Financial advisors always tell their clients to make use of them in order to keep their portfolio diverse. Because if the stock market fall, so does your investment in the stock markets, but other investments securities not tied to the stock market may be performing better than before, thus you may not lose your shirt as the stock market goes down.

    You are aware that today's drop is a function of the "fiscal cliff", aren't you? Do you think that perhaps now, Republicans will negotiate in good faith, and be willing to find compromise? Or do you think they'll lead us to the abyss out of spite?
