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.

Post-Election Retreat: Dow Plummets Below 13K for First Time in 2 Months | Fox Business


And so it begins. First the stocks and I bet more companies will lay off now so they have less then 50 people to avoid Obama care. I hope you liberals are happy because we as a Nation are on a decline. If our country fails it is on your HEADS ..

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?

Had nothing to do with our election. In fact, because there was no long drawn out recount, that helped the market today.

Europe slashed its growth forecast. That's why there was a slight dip at the opening of trading.

Get an education before you try to talk about complicated things.

Here come the Republicans again, hoping for America's failure in hopes of redeeming their personal beliefs.

How sad.

If there is a meltdown, how are Boehner and the House Republicans going to escape blame? Constitutionally they're supposed to be the originators of the solutions, not the president.

Considering the stock market has pretty much doubled under Obama, I don't think investors will be hurt too bad in the long run.

And thanks to Obama, he won't really have to worry about his healthcare.
