    Is this crazy or what?
    If the DOW had a radio announcer doing play by play...I imagine something like this:

    It's another sport you can get anxious about if it isn't the sport season of your choice or your team sucks this year. You can even play from home if you like gambling.

    It goes up and down a couple hundred points on given days, I don't know if that really qualifies as entire world collapsing and vice versa.

    Let me know when it drops 4 figures.

    Volatility is nuts.

    But it makes for pretty easy trading.

    PS, there's a Stock Market subforum.

    It helps to tune out the rhetoric and focus on the numbers...



    Take Caterpillar for example... In the latest market crash CAT is DOWN.

    Everything is DOWN yada yada, the sky is falling.


    In January of 2009 you could buy CAT @ $30.

    This summer before the downgrade it was selling over $100.


    Sooo, it is DOWN.......to the $80s but still way up from $30.

    Kinda reminiscent of being at Monterrey Bay aquarium and watching that tank of anchovies.

    Darned if they don't have less volatility in deciding where to go.. But then again -- they just have a small circular plexiglass world that never changes much and no leadership..

    Whoops was that a hand on my tank?? GTG .....
