4% Decline in 1 day, losses in the last 9 out of 10 days of Trading. The Market is predicting the future here, and they do not like what they see. The Debt Deal showed them one thing clearly. That there is no political will to actually do something about our problems. Cooperate America is not enjoying record profits but not hiring just to be assholes. They are fucking scared shitless. They see a shit storm coming because of our lack of Fiscal Discipline and New Regulations and Obama Care mandates. They see the writing on the wall. I am sure liberals in here will simply say they are being greedy, But they will be wrong. American Business and investors are scared out of their minds like nobody has been in the better part of 100 years, For good reason. Nobody, not the Republicans, not the Democrats seems to understand what we are facing. They all seem to think we can dick around and take our time, and punt most of the real issues down the road. They just do not Understand what the markets clearly do. We are in a car speeding toward a cliff, we can't afford to say will start hitting the breaks soon, We need to put the petal to the floor right now and hope to hell the anti lock breaks work. I for one was part of the sell off today. Converting the tiny amount of investments I have into more gold. Anyone in the markets still right now is riding the titanic right to the bottom.
